    Just curious for all who said Touch ID. What are you going to do the next time you upgrade with Apple going away from home button on all devices? Times are changing.

    I’m probably going to be upgrading to an 8/8+ at some point in the next few months from my 6+. No desire for Face ID or price of an X. If I didn’t think it would drive me crazy to have the smaller 8 I would get by a lot cheaper, but will probably end up with the plus. As far as the question above. Probably keep it until it just gets to slow to use then I guess to Face ID if I have to.

    I don't mind switching to Face ID but I think Apple need more time to improve it.

    Touch ID is so fast and seamless, I don't even have to think about.

    I understand Face ID won't be as seamless as Touch ID but it will be faster, better in different lighting conditions, more app support etc in a couple years.

    I stick with my 8plus till then...

    What’s wrong with it? Face ID does not need light to work. It works fine con complete darkness. Also, Touch ID would fail for me a lot when my hands were moist like getting out of the shower. Never a problem with Face ID. Touch ID may be a tad faster, not by much, but I’ve found Face ID to be more reliable.

    Exactly, FaceID is indeed seamless - at least it is for me, but it's not as fast as TouchID. When I say not as fast, I'm talking mere seconds apart.

    Also, not only does Face ID not need light, it actually works better in complete darkness than in light.

    Nothing is wrong with it specifically, I'd rather just wait a bit for Apple to have more time with it.

    Complete darkness? I didn't know that. That's good to know!

    Not had that issue with moist hands, for me Touch ID pretty much never fails from day to day.

    Yeah it works fine in complete darkness. But about Touch ID, if I get out of the shower then use my 10.5” iPad Pro right after, my Touch ID often fails.

    That's good, I wasn't aware. I can see how in that situation Face ID would be the better option.

    I chose the iPhone X due to its size. Alas, I always liked the size of the iPhone 7/8 Plus (I own an 8 Plus, too), but hated reaching the top of the device with my thumb (yes, I am aware of reachability)...

    Ended up upgrading today because my phone 6 plus just continued to mess up and Bluetooth would cut off and on and just was all kinds of weird. I rely pretty heavily on my phone for my job and didn’t want to miss potentially very important phone calls from pts and such. So I now have a red 8 plus. Still setting it up but I like it so far. It better last several years lol. Went immediately into an otter box defender.

    I prefer Touch ID. It is flawless. I like the bigger screen on the 8+. I do believe it is bigger than the X. And I don’t like the form factor of the X. I do not like the notch and I just prefer the 8+ It is personal choice

    I sold my X 2 weeks ago and got a 2 week old 8, picked up $310 change over, was going to do it ages ago but was waiting for a good deal. Hate FID even on ios12 no better, slow and is useless in my brodit car holder. X reception is not as good as the 8 either.
    Even though i have the small 8 at least no notch. Good to be back with TID.

    Won't be buying next month, first time ever for reasons above and imo they will be too much again, considering if you wait a few months they will be selling on the used market for heaps cheaper.

    Not use Touch ID? When not given a choice you adapt and overcome. I had a choice so I stayed with TID.

    Potentially look at android phones that have fingerprint scanners. It's not that I oppose face id that much, I just like the 6/7/8+ design and I actually like bezels. It gives me a place to put my thumb when I'm reading. Also use the bezels to kinda balance such a big phone as well.

    I was skeptical about Face ID too because it was so awful on the Samsung s8+. It was horrible. But now that I have it and apples version of it, I couldn’t imagine going back to Touch ID. I’ve always had very dry hands. Bad enough that my skin cracks. Touch ID often failed for me. Like maybe 1/3 of the time at least. Or if my hands were moist from a shower or doing dishes, it often failed for me. Now I don’t have any issues unlocking with Face ID. It literally works 99% of the time for me. Unfortunately Touch ID was never a great option for me. I ended up putting in my passcode way too often. I think most adapted very well to Face ID. There will always be a few that say they didn’t like it.

    I like the idea of the home button and Touch ID. Not averse to Face ID at all but the swing for me was the size. As someone who had always said they’d stay away from plus size phones eventually the added screen size was the swing for me

    For me fingerprint is more convinient, have my phone in a cardholder in my car and when it's placed on my desk at work it's easy to unlock it with fingerprint. Also I like a home button placed at the front. For mee it's the best place to have it.

    Like when the headphone jack decided to leave us. The lightening jack was made for sound. Not a real biggie.

    I prefer the bezel as well. Also I like the 8+ design. When I switched over from Android I got the 7+. When 8+ was released I jumped on it in the rose gold. Now I have the product red. Red is my fav color and with the black front it’s stunning. I am very happy with this phone. Not switching. I prefer Touch ID
