    I got my X on release day and I'm returning it today. The size, HBO Go app, Home Run Battle app,and Youtube appearing smaller than on my 7+ and the Portrait mode on the camera not working make it not worth the $1100. My 7+ is more comfortable in my hands to me.

    Decided against the X mostly because of the screen size. Gonna sell my 7 plus and get the 8 plus this week.

    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.
    Funny thing is it’s easier to deal with for most folks. In between the 7 plus and 8 Plus I had the 7. And this is a step up!

    I'm confused, the screen is larger than the plus phones. Is that the issue?

    Taller but narrower than the Plus seems to be a sticking point to some. Not sure I'd call it "larger" though. Longer corner to corner, but proportionally not the same.

    And only on apps that take advantage of full screen mode. If not, it's the size of a 7 screen.

    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.
    This was me but I honestly was gonna jump from the 7+ to the 8 bc I like the smaller size. Went in the Verizon store in launch day at lunch and they had 1 left. Got it. Love it...I’m just debating on the $$$$. Only reason I’d consider taking it back.

    8 was ok but a bit too small, and 8 plus is a brick, X is just right IMO.

    I thinks so too.
    I wouldn’t mind a 6.4” X though.

    I'm trying to give the iPhone X, till the weekend to confirm if I'm keeping it.
    Everything works fine, and all that. However, I often feel if only it was 'slightly' bigger. But, using it day to day, that feeling could wear off. And, this is coming from an iPhone 6s Plsu, 7 Plus, and 8 Plus user...

    I would stay with the X. I loved the Plus phones at first but I had the 8 plus and it was a brick...and this is so much more easier to use. It’s an illusion about the smallness because it’s mostly all screen.

    I think that apple built the phone we've been asking for, for years. Some of the design features make the phone worse than a iPhone plus. Using it in landscape is terrible due to how long and narrow the screen is. We also lost the iPhone plus features. I dont know why they didnt keep the same aspect ration was the plus but get ride of some of the bezel. I would never buy an android but the google pixel 2 xl might have the best design out there. I also don't think the phone is good looking or worth the price I paid for it. I will always get the newest iPhone but its pretty ridiculous. I paid $1400 total for mine. I have no idea what its so expensive.

    I still have my 8 Plus but don’t know that I can go back to it. I’ve had the plus since the 6 Plus and didn’t think I could go smaller ever again. But the large screen and stellar battery life are making it tough to want to return to the Plus.

    Since buying the 8 plus on Tuesday, I’m still looking at the Apple app for the X. I’ve had every plus since the 6. Now I have the 8 one. It doesn’t feel like a brick to me at least. I like the size of it. Don’t know if I can go smaller which I think the X is. Probably will have to wait till next year to see if they make it bigger. Hope I’ll be able to put it in my leg pocket!

    From reading different forums some people that are big plus fans are disappointed with the X and are returning. So you may be better off waiting.

    Yet some (like @mumfoau above you) love it. Best to make your own decision, not what a stranger on some forum says

    Your right. Because in the end it’s in your hand, not theirs. You have to find out yourself.

    One review on YouTube was saying there’s no landscape on the X like on the 8 plus. I haven’t tried it on the X so I’m not sure about that.

    There is no landscape mode like the Plus models.

    The smallness is definitely not an illusion. You get less screen area on the X than on the Plus even though the X is a 5.8 inch screen. The X is a great compromise between the regular 4.7 inch and the 5.5 inch plus. It really comes down to personal preference.

    Yes true but by illusion I mean that less casing around it means it seems smaller than it is.
