    Don't know how much I'll ultimately use it, but it will be fun to explore.

    It's one of those things I would use 1x or 2x to try it out and then most likely never use it again. Even on the iPhone 7 with all the stuff that iMessage has to offer, I literally use none of it but basic send a text or a photo. I am not in college or HS, or dating, or "on the town" and I don't use FB or Snapchat or Instagram, so my phone is my business phone and I can't see sending a Talking Pile of **** to my boss, unless I am giving my notice.. and even that's not a good idea.. burning bridges and all.
    If a business phone is all you need, the 8 or 8 Plus is satisfactory. Why spend more for a few extra features you don't need?

    HA!!!! Well I'm a long way off from high school or college or dating or being in the town. But I do use the balloon drops, the shouting, the whisper and the other little bits of fun in iMessage.

    And for the two years I've had an iPhone for work, I've never found the need to send a text with emojis, **** or otherwise, to a boss. I use text sparingly at work. Running late. On my way. I'll call you for the station. That's the extent of it. Otherwise I use email, as God intended.

    That's the point, I don't need the 8 as my 7 is fine. If I was going to jump up, it would be for the X for the OLED HD Screen, the improved cameras and portrait mode (front and back), and the increased battery life (2+ hours), etc. Those are some of the new features that seems worth checking out. Jumping from a pristine iPhone 7 to 8 does not seem worth it, even with the trade in program.

    Its existence on the device doesn't mean that it needs to be used for business.

    I won't use it for business. But I will certainly use it for my friends and family.
    I never thought I'd use regular emojis, but I do at times. Just for fun. I certainly wouldn't buy a phone just because of them though.

    That feature was kinda creepy
    I almost feel like we are focusing a little too much on emojies and less on things that "matter more" lol Is it fun? definitely, and I'm sure a lot of people will have fun with it. i probably will never use it but hey, always great to have "features" lol.

    I think it'll eventually be used as much as digital touch on an Apple Watch.

    If I were a decade younger I think I’d be more excited about Animojis. I’ll probably play around with them for a bit and then forget they’re there.

    True story. Back then my biggest security concern was butt dialing.

    I'll probably try it out a few times, and then never use it. Unless I'm texting my kids... . But I think it's cool just because it shows some of what's possible with the phone. I can't wait to see what third party apps do with that tech!

    I think it will be fun to use but it could get old if they don't add more Animojis over time.

    Yup! And I don’t think a lot of people will use it that often.

    I think it's cute and novel, but it think it will appeal to the folks who want to personalize their messages. Doesn't this function only work on the new X model?

    It's a not-so-bad feature, but the fact that it's only available on the X is pretty...no, very...lame.

    What happens if you send an Animojis to a mon-iphone user what does it do?

    I agree! I'm hoping they'll have it for other iPhones in the near future.

    I think it just plays in a continuous loop, like a gif.

    You can save them as a GIF and send them to non iPhone X users, so all iPhone 5, 6, 7, 8 users. I am sure the will work as a GIF too on Android. They can only be created on the X. I would not actually use them.. as I don't even use the cartoons, bubbles and other stuff that is on iMessage now.

    No, just...no. I can see kids and teens liking it, but other than that, absolutely not.

    I use my phone for business and this feature is so unbusiness-like.
    Same argument people had for stickers. #non-issue
