    Although I’m disappointed in the space great & silver options, I’m still planning on getting the X. I’ve always hated the home button, so this is perfect Anyone else planning on getting the X?
    I don’t know. The only thing I’m really interested in is the edge to edge display.

    Touch ID apps will also work with FaceID. Why would you worry about FaceID not working? Reminds me of those who thought Touch ID wouldn't work.
    I imagine the fact that it didn’t work during the keynote is what would cause the worry. I’m hoping that was just a one off situation and reliability is just as strong on FaceID as it has been for TouchID.

    Since I have a 7 Plus, the 8 is a waste of money in my opinion. No real advantages that justify the cost. The iPhone X, though....I’m seriously considering it. Mainly for the screen. I think it’s a step in the right direction. I’m very interested in the camera capabilities as well. I think I may make the switch to the X. The November release date sucks but nothing we can do about that.

    I’m on the fence about it. Luckily I have a little more time to decide since it doesn’t come out until November.

    I'm not getting the X. Don't care about FACE ID, I prefer Touch ID, don't care about animal emojis and viewing videos in landscape mode would be too awkward I'm leaning towards the 8 plus. Currently have iPhone 6.

    Simply looks like a better version of 7 so not going to break my bank for this just yet.

    I'm actually happy about this. It gives me a chance to see Google's offering. I'm not particularly serious about switching, but I like to see what else is out there in case I get blown away by something

    I don't why I would even try to fool myself and say I'm not getting the iPhone X. Duh, of course I will; albeit, just not sure if it will be 27th October.

    About 3-4 months ago, I replaced my Black iPhone 7 Plus, with a Red one. So, there's that...

    Also, with the release of iOS 11, might change things. One might feel as if they have a 'newer' device, and thus willing to wait.

    PS: I like and prefer Touch ID. Even at the moment I'm testing the Iris scanner on the S8 Plus. Yeah, a tad annoying and inconsistent.

    Other than a couple of flirtations with the “dark side” I’ve been an iPhone guy since the iPhone 4. I tried (and loved) the Note 7 last year until it’s untimely demise and I’m really feeling like Samsung’s Note 8 is the superior offering this year. Coupled with the good discount I can get as a Note 7 owner, I’m sorely tempted to step away for at least this year and give the N8 a go. I just have so much money invested in iOS apps and music it’s difficult to pull the trigger on the preorder.

    I'm torn. Before the Apple event I was all about the X. I watched most of the keynote today - I thought the X looked good but it didn't blow me away. TBH, I think the device is insanely overpriced for what you're getting. After that, I thought the 8 Plus was where I was going. Then I read articles online and swung back over to the X. Now I'm thinking 8 Plus. I think the big draw for me to the 8 Plus is that I can still use my cases from my 7 Plus, it has wireless charging and basically all of the other features of the X (except edge to edge screen, Face I'd and a bit better of a camera - none of these really wow me). I need to figure this out soon because if I'm going with the 8 Plus, I want to preorder on Friday!

    I bet if we looked back at this time last year, most people would be saying the same thing about the iPhone 7/7Plus. And the year before that they would say the same about the 6S/6S Plus.. but I'm sure a lot of people still bought those phones.

    The iPhone X looks really nice to me, and I'm thinking about getting it. My only thing is I'm wondering how well it'll function of it there will be a lot of 'bugs', since everything is so 'new'. Will there be Display issues as there were with the Retina MBP when they came out.. or how there were issues with the Touch Bar when that was released.

    The nice thing about the S models (and the iPhone 8 is essentially just an 7S) is that they were usually really stable compared to the previous years model. So I'm still undecided.

    It's a no go for me. Nothing exciting for me this year. Sad because I always get the new iPhone. But not this time.

    This was one the most confusing and disappointing Apple events I have watched. I went in ready to buy the next phone and came out confused and unenthusiastic about any of the models.

    Now don't get me wrong. Apple showed us three decent phones. The 8 is nice and would probably be an good upgrade if it was called the 7s as it seemed to hit all the right things for an "s" type upgrade but it did pack in a little more than the usual "s" upgrade.

    The X is just confusing. I'm not sure what Apple has set out to do here. A screen to edge display is great but the phone feels like a lot of compromises to achieve that goal. Face ID was was barely demoed at the keynote. This is a huge change and possible regression for iOS. Welcome back swipe to unlock! In order to accommodate this feature, they had to cut away a section of the screen and add an extra step to Apple Pay. Maybe a fingerprint scanner in a side button would have been more impressive and less intrusive.

    In order to accommodate the screen, they had to move control center to the upper right, Notification Center to the upper left, Siri to a side button, create a new awkward gesture to get into multitasking menu, and create an extra step to dismiss apps(Welcome back circle with a red x!). Yes these are things one can get used to but they also seem like somewhat clumsy solutions to accommodate this screen. On this new iphone things operate this way but on this other new iphone they operate this way.

    So am I going to get the X? I don't know. This is not the feeling I was expecting to have after this keynote. I'm probably going to have to wait for the reviews because I need to see how it performs out in the world. That also means I won't be ordering the 8 this week as I probably have to wait an additional month or more before any X reviews come out and I'll feel like I'll be better informed to make the decision.

    tl/dr I don't know

    It didn't work for the guy on stage at the Keynote.
    it wasnt a fail on face id. the phone just required a passcode after restarting or turning on. just like on the 7, you need to enter passcode after reboot before touch id. someone obviously didnt prepare the phone correctly before giving it to the presenter!
