    Apple refered to the iPhone X as a Limited Edition model for the 10th anniversary. While it will no longer be produced, a new 5.8" model will replace it. I'm not a big fan of the X screen size. I prefer the 5.5" Plus screen much better for my needs. The bezels don't bother me at all. The 16:9 aspect ratio is far better than the 19.5:9 for many of the things I do. For me, the X just seems too tall and skinny. Aside from the screen size, it's a very nice iPhone with some very cool features. This year's new models will be even better. But I still won't like the screen aspect ratio. I'll eventually have to get it if I ever upgrade. Not this year though. I'll either continue with my 6s Plus with a new battery, or get the 8 Plus. I want the 8 Plus for the upgraded camera. I'm hoping the 8 Plus price will be reduced come September. I'd love to have it with my 6s Plus (new battery) as a back up on iOS 10.1.1.

    An old friend of mine at the superbowl party I was at has an iX and I got to play with it. It’s better than I thought.
    That’s exactly how I felt. I wasn’t impressed by the Keynote & only purchased it because I needed to downsize. Once I started playing with it, I realized it’s pretty nice. You definitely can’t judge a book by its cover LOL

    After a few days using the X I don't think I could go back to using my 8 plus.
    Just fell in love with the smaller foot print off the X, it fits the hand and front pocket like a glove.
    The form factor is what sold me. I love the Plus devices but carrying them had become too much work for me.

    Yep, the form factor handling it is impressive. Not so much the display form factor. As I showed elsewhere in details, when contents are involved (and keyboard is necessary), the narrower screen isn’t so much fun

    Is it worth upgrading to an iPhone X?-eef98ded-36b1-4f74-952f-af5e5a0e68b2.jpegIs it worth upgrading to an iPhone X?-c9a2b04e-28de-428d-a188-ba5630c9287d.jpeg

    The form factor is different, that is for sure. I think it has advantages and disadvantages and it does take some getting used to. I can fully understand why people don't care for the change. At the same time, the new form factor makes the phone easier to carry, both in your hand and if you put the phone in a pocket or bag. This also seems to be the direction the entire industry is moving in; most flagship phones now have an 18:9 or 19:9 ratio, not just Apple.

    I think once we see the rumored 6.5” dohicky this Autumn many will like larger, albeit, taller display. I wouldn’t mind having both a 6.5” and the 5.8” but I’m not paying over $1,200 for one device.
