    Eh I have second thoughts. I'm back on my 6S Plus today. Wiped and boxed up the X last night fully intent on returning it and getting the 8 Plus. I don't know that it's worth the price tag. I love the software. I love touch ID and gestures didn't take long to learn. What's disappointing the most is the size. What I knew is that it wasn't as tall as the Plus series. What I didn't anticipate is it being more narrow than the Plus. This makes the phone really small for someone who never card for the iPhone prior to the Plus series. The phone isn't getting any larger this year so $1000 for a product I'm not exactly happy with. That said, once I learned I have 20 days to return, I think I'm going to go back to it until Friday like I originally planned. I am second guessing though.

    Since the screen itself is as big as the one on the plus sizes...you aren’t missing anything....just easier to use.
    The screen is taller and narrower which makes typing on the keyboard a bit harder to two-handed type on it.

    I'm a complete one handed phone user, so the more narrow size is a big plus for me. The Plus series was difficult for me to type on one handed. I do get your point though. If you're accustomed to typing with both hands, it could be awkward on a more narrow phone.

    No regrets. It took a day or so to get used to the smaller form factor from the Plus. But Face ID has worked well so far, camera is great, speakers are great, screen is great. The gestures remind me of jailbreak tweaks I have used in the past so the muscle memory for me was there.

    I am really enjoying reading how happy most people are with the X. It is very exciting to get the new Iphone at or about launch.

    I have decided to stick with my 8+ and going to watch the excitement from the beach and not jump into the frenzied waters. I had a 7+ Product Red Iphone and it was without a doubt my favorite phone of all time. I had it working perfectly. I only jumped to the 8+ because I was offered $700 for my 7+ so it was not much of a financial burden.

    I am genuinely happy for all you guys and gals enjoying the heck out of the X.. I will make my way to the party at some point but for now, I am loving my 8+

    Keep posting and I'll keep reading!!

    For me it’s little things like a full status bar at the top or even Touch ID. Not having the Bluetooth logo or alarm symbol or battery percentage is a big annoyance. I know it’s the future but I guess going from the familiar to the unfamiliar is scary with a 1000 dollar purchase.

    I have no regrets. I gave up on getting a iP X and bought an 8+ on Friday. Coming from a iP 7 the 8+ felt heavy "clunky" and to big. I was able to get an iP X Saturday morning and I couldn't box up my 8+ fast enough. So far I really like how the iP X fells weight and size wize. I'm still getting used to the gestures but I am doing a lot better than I was Saturday afternoon. I used the camera to take pictures for a course I am revising this morning. Looking at the pics on the phone they look real good.

    So far the only thing that bothers me is for some reason when I'm using iMessage and turn th phone to landscape the display doesn't change. I don't know if I'm doing some wrong or with iOS 11.1 and the iPhone X yoou won't get the landscape mode in iMessage. Except for that I'm happier than a pig in ****.

    Thinking about the same thing. I have the 7 plus, and while I’m still on pre order for the beginning of December for the X, I’m thinking about canceling it and getting the 8 plus. I really don’t have use for the cartoons, sorry couldn’t pronounce the name right, or the camera. My 7 plus works fine and I like the Touch ID. It’s the screen size that gets me. I don’t like the width part. So I probably will get the 8 Plus this week and wait till next year and get the X or whatever it’s called.

    The extra money and probably having to buy a second phone because of my job is another reason I’ll probably skip this year. Have fun with the X all of you. Should see you next year if it’s a little bigger.

    I’m coming from the note 8. No regrets. The x is the first phone in a long time that feels different and new maybe since the palm pre. For an initial feeling it gives me good vibes I had with the blackberry 9000 and original iPhone. I’m loving using it and feels so much better to use and handle over the note 8 which I also enjoy. Only thing having me concerned is the signal. I had a couple spotty service calls today that should have been fine service.

    If you’re ok with having a not significant upgrade from your 7 plus and having the same design 3 years older then add one more year to that then go for it. Don’t forget to look at X at the store while you’re there just to make sure you won’t regret it. They might even have one in stock if you go early because they are stocking up everyday. Enjoy your new 8 plus.

    I did get to see and handle an X in a store in another town close by last Saturday. They had 6 in stock but none on display. The sales rep brought one out and let me look it over. It was the silver and was very pretty. But I’m not totally convinced I want it just yet. Maybe..... But I’m thinking I’ll see what the holiday specials are from Verizon for the 8 plus and wait until the next iteration of the X to see where Apple goes with it. Knowing Apple they’ll refine it much more each year. Love new tech and love change but I’m just not sold YET (maybe) that I want this one.

    I had the iPhone 8 Plus and the 8 and just bought the X and not going back. I love the gestures and the forum factor is great.

    The device is smooth, responsive and the screen is bright and crisp. I don’t even miss the 1100 and change I spent for my space grey 64 gig version and a black OEM leather case.

    To me the iPhone X is the future and the gesture concept is now here to stay and with Apples engineering resources and unlimited capital, they can really refine it. I am in for the long haul and excited about the future of the X.
    So you bought the 8 for 2 months, and now bought the X? But what really gets me scratching my head is, you spent a lot of money on an 8, and then spent a ton more money on the X only 2 months later, but you wouldn't spend an extra $100 for the 256GB model?

    Anyone else having second thoughts after having received your iPhone X? Maybe I let the hype get to me, or maybe I expected more than I should have but 2 days after receiving the device I am already considering taking back to Apple. I do love the device, just now sure I love it enough to make a permanent switch from my 7+. I do like the Face ID even though you still have to swipe up after it unlocks, which I have a feeling may change with future updates. The only dislikes I can come up with is I am not a fan of the way you close apps, its just a few more steps than simply pressing the home button twice and swiping away. The only other thing I really don't care for is the way it feels in my hand, I like the bigger devices. I do love the X overall, but after receiving just not sure I love it enough to justify the price tag when I have a perfect condition 7+.
    I don’t have any but you’re not alone. A friend of mine didn’t even consider the X until the drum beat of the hype reached a fever pitch and she caved. Now she’s considering returning it mainly because she likes the plus’s size. Seems like Apple sort of allowed us to believe it was a plus in a regular iPhone body when that didn’t really turn out to be true. Not exactly. I’m ok with it just like the design and having the latest. But second thoughts are what return periods are for. Give it a few days and then do what’s right for you.

    Apple is trying to get you to use gestures. If you pull down the control center from the right corner it brings back the classic status bar for you to peer at. I know it’s an extra step, but it’s still there! Don’t lose hope yet!

    I wouldn’t say I have regrets. However after 3 years with a plus model phone going down in just shear size is hard to get used to. Even though is screen is marginally smaller, it’s just weird to go from a colossal giant to well the X.
    I only had a Plus for a week and I noticed the size/weight difference right away.

    I almost got the 64gb as my 2 year old 6s only had 30gb used. Figured if I was spending the money I might as well get the 256 but I still have 223.64gb available on it. I stream everything (unlimited data, and Apple Music) and use iCloud photo library.

    For some weird reason, I often have second thoughts after a 'large' purchase. I start thinking about people in the world struggling, lack of food, water and basic human things. I think about those people fighting daily in countries that they don't want to be in, but, can't do anything about it.

    On the other hand, I also think to myself, I work hard, and there is nothing wrong with buying stuff for yourself. So, all that to say, yes, I feel guilty, and have second thoughts all the time (even more so this time, $1549...!!!), but, I'll get over it and 'move on'.

    I say enjoy your device. However, if the device isn't for you (I know a few struggle with the size), then return it before the 14 days

    I'm the same way... do I need it, etc., but after using it a bit, it's just so nice and I get over it. As you said, I worked hard

    The only thing i am struggling with is the price, it is still an iphone albeit beautiful well built and the gestures are nice, i am not sure it ticks enough boxes for me to justify. But at the same time i have yet to be able to return it.

    While this is true, it offers nothing more than the iphone 8/8 plus and that is marginally more than the iphone 7. And with incentives i can get a note 8 for far cheaper. Again i love iphones and apple and have owned every one since the 3g, we have just hit a plateau and we are merely paying for aesthetics with this device. All smartphones are computers but does it offer enough to justify this price tag? to me no it doesn't but i do not want to stop anyone else from buying it because it is a really nice device, and if you can afford it you will not regret it. for i am not sure if it does enough for me to use this for the next year over the note 8. The thing is a joy to use i tell you. I do look forward to the time when the gestures and this design is standard for apple. Because the gestures are nice.

    But i still have plenty of time with my device to make up my mind, some days i love the design and face id and other times i'm feeling the growing pains of the new design.
