    Both with the scale tipping towards the "EX" punctuation. Even though I DO call it the iPhone 10 (because I'm smart like that), I really WANT to call it the iPhone "EX" because it sounds way cooler ...

    Having learned roman numerals back in grade school, I new immediately that the "X" was the iPhone "ten".

    Most people in my circle call it 10. If im reading a article, my mind says X because of the letter. But I grit my teeth and say its the 10 stoopid. Lol

    I keep saying 'ex'

    I think I've come across one person that has referred to it as the ten. Funny thing, when I went to do a pickup on Saturday I overheard an Apple Store employee refer to it as "ex" to the guy he was helping out.

    Went to a TMo corporate store today to return my 8 (Jump on Demand phone, they wouldn't take it so I drove an hour and a half for nothing) and he interchanged ex and 10 when he was talking about it.

    I usually say 10 but sometimes it does come out as X. Usually when I’m tired or not thinking. Most people I know don’t really care about that fancy new iPhone. They are happy with their iPhone 5’s and cheap Androids...

    I call it ex because I think it sounds cooler and also because I like to annoy condescending people that insist it’s ten LOL.

    I went to the Apple Store today to return a phone and the people who came in the same time as me asked if any iPhone X (exs). The Apple Store employee responded saying that the Tens have been going out as fast as they have come in. LOL

    Did you return your 8 to stick with the Sony? I really like the look of those compacts

    Nope. The compact is a great phone but I went to something else.

    Same here. Reading, my brain says “ex” but then I correct it to 10. Apple and their silly X.
    When speaking though, I always call it the iPhone Ten, though I’ve experienced what several others here have with carrier store employees calling it “ex.”

    I say 10 out loud, but my mind reads X. Weird how that works, kind of like OS X except for that one sometimes I do say X out loud. I’ve never said iPhone X out loud though, haven’t made that mistake. Even though it sounds way cooler than 10

    So for all the people calling it X out loud, what are they going to say next year when they kick it up to XI...

    The iPhone Ex Eye!!
    iPhone Ten One!!
    iPhone Ten Series 1!!

    Meanwhile Jony Ives and Craig Federighi are pulling their hair out (well Craig at least) yelling “IT’S 11!!”

    Ok, so what about the Mac OS X? Was there confusion about that? Same thing, no?

    Came across more people today. Another one says the X and the other says the ten. Guy who says the X says that it sounds more elite...

    I went with the Pixel (1st generation one). For how my life is, the ZX1 Compact didn't work for me. The camera is where it fell short.

    Huh? My reply of “Wow!....Just WOW!” was in response to someone asking DarlaMack where the X comes from. The X is the Roman numeral for 10. Anyway, Apple could start naming the iPhones in association with the year. For example, “iPhone 2018” or a variation thereof.

    Great choice, I’d love to try a pixel, how do you like it compared to your SE? Still got a week to return my X so putting some serious thought into it

    I would say that I like them nearly the same but I like the SE a little bit more. The Pixel has me locked in because of the cameras and decent battery life. The SE has me locked in because of its power and size together. Personally, I would probably use the SE as my main phone if the front camera was better.

    That's understandable. Something else that really helped me was making a super honest needs and wants list and putting all of my phones against it.
    (In case you are curious to know, the 8 scored well but fell short on battery life for me and I didn't like the way the pictures looked on it so it wasn't worth the $300+ over the SE for me.)
