    While I like Samsung's hardware, even when I used Android for a number of years I avoided Samsung like the plague because of the skin they use over Android (used to be Touchwiz now it's something different on the 8 series phones). I prefer Google's vision for Android styling if I'm going to use an Android device. Once Android 4 came out the OS had a much better look than the old days which was what originally drove OEM's to skin those old versions of Android to fix some shortcomings and also to be different.

    I also learned after checking out the new S8 and S8 Plus that my parents upgraded their S5's to a couple weeks ago that I don't actually like Samsung's curve edge design. It feels nice, but leaves an ugly visual distortion on those edges. I'd rather just have a super thin bezel like the X.
    If I had to recommend Android to someone, I’d tell them to get a Pixel. Stock Android beats TouchWiz every time.

    This doesn’t look bezel-less to me. There’s clearly a forehead and chin albeit a lot smaller but still there.
    Semantics.

    Small enough for an ear piece and sensors. But no bezels on the sides, unlike the iPhone X.

    TouchWiz hasn't existed for a year now.

    I've seen the new skin on the S8's and still not impressed. I'd still take stock Android over their new UI as well.

    Count me in.
    I’ve never had the chance to try it, but have been wanting to give it a try for a few years now.

    No. My s8+ is already tall enough and the Note 8 is even taller. Way too hard to pocket.

    You couldn’t pay me to give Samsung more money for their tech. The degradation factor is off the charts.

    The batteries in the S8/S8+/Note 8 will only degrade by 5% in a year, vs 20% degradation after 500 charge cycles in iPhones.
    The Galaxy S8's new battery will degrade less quickly than the Galaxy S7's

    Not trying to sound like a Samsung shill, but that's quite impressive.

    With that being said, I'm still picking up an iPhone 8 Plus or the X sometime in the future.

    Not me... I was a die hard android fan until I got sick of my android phones becoming laggy and glitchy after awhile. Bought my 1st iPhone (7+) and haven’t looked back.

    I do miss Samsung’s OLED displays.
    The OLED on the X is one of the reason why I want the iPhone X.
    If only Apple amped up the resolution to 2K, that would be super cool!

    It looks like a duck, swims like a duck , quacks like a duck, it probably is a duck. Current one is just a different name with slight changes.

    comes down to iOS and android is so much better in everything. when i see iTunes that i can not even copy my music to my Phone. i own my iphone for a year and no music on it because itunes is trash. i need to copy my music to my mac and so on.

    so before buying an iPhone X make sure it fits to you.

    Why don’t you use a music streaming service?
    It’ll then be easier when you switch platforms.

    I came from android to iOS, it’s never been a problem. 1. You just have to know how exactly
    2. I subscribe to Apple Music, best quality music for streaming or offline play. I don’t even listen to my personal collection, most of that music is available on Apple Music with much better quality.

    That’s what I did. Switched over to Apple Music too.

    So easy to say “ hey Siri.. play this” and boom... she does it and does it well.

    Plus download whatever you want for offline play.

    At the end of the day, Android OS doesn’t tend to perform as well after a few months of usage.
    Man this is so true.

    I would have minimal apps on my androids and they would still slow to a crawl sometimes.

    I never liked iOS or iPhones until I actually tried them.

    Night and day difference, buttery smooth performance on the iPhone, not one crash or lag.

    Just a very seamless experience across the board, add the Apple Watch 3, a pair of AirPods... game over.

    You summed it up really well
    It’s a great ecosystem to be fully invested in.

    Yep!
    I can’t wait to hold it in my hands.
    I’m hoping it’ll be easy to use with one hand.

    How do you guys feel about not having the finger print sensor on iPhone X and having to type in passwords for all your apps again? Will Face ID be implemented by the banking apps and password apps ect., at some point? Having to type in my passwords again when I shouldn't have to would annoy the crap outa me lol

    My only issue with the iPhone X is that hideous notch at the top of their display. Why in the world would apple think that is a good thing???

    After having my 7+ for a while. I'm not a big phone fan. I couldn't go back to a smaller screen though. The X is perfect.

    Exactly.
    I have indeed thought about getting one (Note8), but have decided to wait on the iPhone X and see what it has to offer. As @newtoios has said, "I'm done with giant phones (maybe) and the iPhone X will have a smaller form factor with a big screen, the best of both worlds". I've been waiting for this kind of device for a few years now and hopefully Apple got it right.
