    No flagship phone in 2017/18. Should have a 1080P LCD screen. There's also for no reason for a phone to be that big having only a 5.5" screen. The phone is big for no damn reason,
    Have to agree with you on both points you made. Apple is the only one who still manufacturers lcd displays, it is time to be done with them! No reason why they can’t all be OLED.

    I always hated how cumbersome the plus model was to carry around. Phone is way too big for that size screen. Look at the s8 and s8 plus, also note 8. Hey look at the X! No reason for a phone to be that big with a 5.5” screen.

    I am curious to see how the “X Plus” will look next year. Apparently it will be a 6.5” screen.

    Well, at the risk of repeating myself, I personally am enjoying the size of the 8 Plus. , before fully charging my phone last night, I had 48 hours since the previous charge, which makes me giddy!

    I’m a super heavy user. I’m lucky to get 12 hours.
    I would contact Apple Support about this!

    Well to each is his or her own. Not everyone likes the same things so arguments about how awful one model is because you don’t like it make no sense. You don’t like it.... that’s fine. It’s not like you don’t have a choice. I also have a choice and I chose the 8 Plus this year. I judge screens by how they actually look in real usage. I’ve come from Android and have had very high resolution screens that were beautiful. The screen on my 8 Plus looks just as good to me. Might not to you and that’s fine. If I didn’t like this phone I would have chosen the X. I did handle the X and looked it over thoroughly before making my decision. Then I chose what I wanted. I like big phones and am quite comfortable with this one. Also there is actually more usable screen real estate on the 8 Plus than the X. Lots of reviews on YouTube demonstrating that very well.

    Next year when there’s a bigger X version that will also most likely be better with more of the first gen quirks worked out I’ll be in.

    The X Plus or whatever it’s going to be called is going to be great.
    I’m just not excited about the price tag of it 🤣

    I love my 8Plus, then I bit the bullet and picked up an X. Kept my 8Plus and paid it off because I’ve been with the plus size since the 6. The X is my daily phone but I find myself using my 8Plus at home for multimedia, etc. it’s my back up.

    What did you use prior to the X and 8+?

    While I do miss my X dearly, I’m am apart of the small group of people where using the X causes me to have headaches. I do keep thinking I will just deal with the headaches and get the X again but then when I think about it I honestly sound insane. Team 8plus until the new X arrives this year. Apple is aware of the problem is causes some users using the new OLED screen. They have all but confirmed software probably won’t fix the problem. So hopefully the new hardware will.

    Is the battery life superior to the X?

    Yeah. I’ll unlikely unload my silver 64 GB. Right now just using it for some testing. But not using it as my daily driver.

    I would say it’s alittle better. I still have my X and 8plus (as I said before I miss using my X daily however, I still have it as I’m undecided if I want to keep the 8plus or the X and deal with the headaches as they come)

    I caved again and picked up another X. Got bored the other day and bought another one. So far so good. It’s better now that most of my apps are optimized for the screen. On launch day it drove me nuts having everything cut short. We will see how it goes.

    It’d be better to stay with the 8 Plus if the X is causing you headaches.

    I kept my X. My X is personal, while my 8 Plus is for work. I use them both side by side

    How do you find the weight difference going between the 2?

    It’s noticeable. It’s heavier than the other iPhones, but it does feel more solid. I’ve also gotten used to the weight to the point of not being bothered by it too much.

    Well, I decided to keep the X.

    We (my docs and I) finally figured out my problem and after a surgery I had last year I incurred a very rare protein deficiency. I have started to remedy the problem and headaches were gone. I’m glad it wasn’t the phone. Which would have been weird because I used it for almost a month without any problem. Although, a replacement apple sent me had a way better screen and I don’t know if that fixes the problem. No pink hint, barely any blue hue when tilted. Wonder if they are working on the issues already.

    I’m happy to hear you were able to figure out the causes of the headaches that you were experiencing. You can now enjoy your X!!
