    I love my X - probably my favorite phone ever.

    What would make yours perfect?

    For me, if I could schedule texts to future dates and time, and it would be perfect. One of the few things I miss from my Samsung days.

    What's yours?

    For me, getting rid of the notch would make this phone perfect. I’ve gotten used to the notch but it’s still there, especially in landscape.

    Better battery life and faster Face ID (2nd gen).

    While I love mine, I would love a plus size even more. That and an optional fingerprint reader on the power button as an alternative to Face ID.

    I honestly can’t think of anything that would make me happier. I don’t know if I realized I was somewhat unhappy with the size of my pluses until I held the X lol.

    Maybe a bigger battery? Even then I end the day at 30% with 4-6hrs usage and 12-16 standby so even that isn’t an issue.

    Pretty happy with the X but of course optional Touch ID would be fantastic and the ability to search for previous calendar entries past one year would really make me happy.

    The notch is the only thing I’d change right now. But if it meant giving up Face ID, then no thank you. Face ID is way better for me. My career choice (or me not wearing gloves when I should) has left me with thumbs that have almost no fingerprints. Touch ID only works about 25% of the time for me, and most of the time I have to hold the phone with one hand and use my index finger on the other hand to unlock the phone. Now that I have experienced Face ID, I don’t think I could ever go back to fingerprint authentication.

    If I listed everything it'd sound like I'm not happy with my X which I am, but nothing's perfect. I would be interested to see how much wider the phone would be if Apple stuck to a 16:9 display.

    The biggest thing is something I've wanted for years though. More granular control over camera settings. A manual mode would be nice.

    Battery life and it could be a bit wider. Its too thin for landscape mode for me.

    Ability to set my own APN settings, including MMS, and not have the carrier supply the settings. Apps that are updated to work with the screen properly (about 65% right now are not working properly). Larger screen, at least 6.2". One can dream...

    Better gestures, get rid of the notch, and bring down the price. I don't think my 256GB X was worth the $1,149, TBH. Oh, and it needs a bigger battery. I think my old 8 Plus had better battery life.

    And a complete overhaul of iOS would be nice too. The notifications are just terrible.

    Hide - auto hide the “home indicator” bar. We don’t need it. It gets in the way. Designing around it is ridiculous.

    I agree with a few others in regards to it being a little wider would be nice.

    How about some sort of textured back plate (similar to the BlackBerry Priv) so I can hang onto it easier without a case? I love the feel of it “naked” but it’s like holding a wet bar of soap.

    Two things I really miss from my Blackberry days...
    1. The Notification LED
    2. Long press on a key switches to upper case letter. No shift key needed.

    Other than that I have adapted to iOS rather well and have become a fan. On 7plus waiting arrival of X.

    That's one of the thing Android gets right even on most default keyboards. I get annoyed by having to shift for basic punctuation. I know there are 3rd party keyboards in the App Store, but they don't work all that well.

    A larger size X would be great. The print seems too small compared to the iPhone 8 plus.

    Haha! I got an 8 to hold me over until the X went up for preorder. I felt like I needed a microscope to read text on that thing. Print is much larger on the X than the 8.

    I don’t have a complaint with the device itself so in that regard, it’s already perfect for ‘my’ use. With that in mind, I have several things I’d like to see changed or added in regard to iOS, but that for another thread.

    I don't own one but a plus size would make me purchase one. That's why I went with the 8 Plus. Like the large size.

    If you made the X (with the current screen height) but kept the screen 16:9, obviously the phone would be even wider than the 8 Plus. I'm not wanting to do measuring at the moment, but I'm thinking it may add as much as a half inch in width.

    Personally, I'm one of those that is happy to have a similar sized screen to the 8 Plus (just difference aspect ratio) in a phone roughly the width of the iPhone 8. If Apple does make an "X Plus," I don't see myself ever buying it. Like mem0511, I tried an iPhone 7 and ended up returning it, I couldn't deal with the smaller text. The X seems close to perfect, for me, that way.

    What I'd change is, first, I'd like to see the top bar (where the battery icon, signal strength, and clock are) to be blacked out pretty much all the time, to "hide" the notch. I don't need that bar to match the color of the app, unless the app is actually going to use that space for something useful; I'd just as soon keep a black bar at the top.

    I'd also like to see an option to swap out the battery icon for a percentage, since you don't have room for both as on previous iPhones.

    I think slightly wider would be perfect so you could get 16:9 videos that have just a little pillarboxing to avoid the notch but take up the full width of the screen (height in landscape orientation). If 16:9 is too much maybe a 12:5 ratio so 16:9 has a little pillar box but the really widescreen movies could be full screen on it with no top/bottom bars. Right now if you zoom a 2.39:1 type movie (like Wonder Woman) you lose all around because it zooms in past the edges.
