    I’ve had the X for a week now and am considering buying a 7 plus instead. I like the X but for the price tag I should love it. I’d be getting a 7 Plus after having a 7 for the last 17 months. Today, I think the 7 plus, 128gb, might be the best value for me. 6 more days to go with the X. We’ll see...
    Let us know what you decide! I love the OLED screen on the X

    Will do. The screen is beautiful!! There’s still time for me to fall in love . The sensible part of my brain says to at least try the 7 plus. The kid in me says go with the latest and greatest.

    I had the 7 plus, it was always too big of a phone for me but the 7 was just too small. The X is the perfect size it really fits in the hand nice and I've been waiting for this size from apple for years!

    How was battery life on the 7 plus? I always heard it was really good but then I’ve read the X is better?! I don’t think the X is much better than my 7.

    I get about the same battery life as I did on the 7 plus. It's very good for me

    I left the note for the 8 plus then got the X. I just couldn't roll with the X anymore. I'll wait for face ID to mature. It's not reliable enough for me in the ways I use.
    What did you switch to?

    A lot of folks feel this way, including me but I just hung on to mine. I like them now better than at first.

    I went back and forth from my old 7plus to my X. I ended up keeping my x even after trying an 8plus to see if that would sway me. The X Face ID was surprisingly more accurate for me expect for when I first wake up. That is the only time it doesn’t work for me. Which yes, is a small compromise. I think apple will figure it out.

    Face ID has started to slow down for me oddly enough. It’s definitely not as consistent as Touch ID was. I envy everyone who says it works better for them than Touch ID did.

    Face ID works okay-to-well but certainly not better than Touch ID on my 7 Pluses but TID was several generations refined.

    Using beta and every version brings improvements much needed.

    My main gripe with the X is it would be better if the screen was same width as the plus, especially when watching surf instagram videos on x next to plus, X looks weirdly narrow.
    Guess the X plus will solve that

    Thanks for all the responses! I did go back to the 7Plus today, and I'm happy with it, as I was before. Lol. I really have to force myself, and be cognizant of the fact that when Apple releases something new, I have this feeling that I HAVE to try it. I need to get over that. It's not helping my wallet.
    Lol same phenomenon happens with me I went with iPhone X >iPhone 8plus> iPhone X now again at iPhone 8 Plus and already tempting for iPhone X ... I went with iPhone 8 Plus for its battery superiority but just can’t get over the newness and design of iPhone X and that vibrant oled panel.

    This is why I really dislike this whole phase of 18/9 aspect ratio. I’m really hoping it’s a phase and that’s all. I’ll make due if this is going to be a permanent thing but to me a thinner but longer phone doesn’t justify fake “bezels” when watching a movie

    If that’s what suits your needs the best, then great! You’ll have a great device.

    I prefer the X over any other iPhone just because of dual OIS in the rear cameras. I hate taking low light photos without OIS.

    The 18/9 aspect ratio is here to stay. Most new Android phones will be using it moving forward and I can’t imagine Apple not sticking with it.

    Yep already know that LG 18:9 Samsung 18.5:9 OnePlus 5T 18:9 Pixel XL2 18:9 to name a few however my hope is it’s something that will change in the future.

    I think instead you'll see video change. Obviously movies and TV are unlikely to change their standard (in the near future); but I think you could see YouTube and even Netflix go to 18:9 or 19:9 as their standard as the majority start using the new phones.

    If they do go that route which I honestly cannot see happening until it becomes a standard in theatres/tv screens etc but if it does happen I’m all for it but until that happens I will still favour 16:9 over 18:9 on phones.

    So I returned my X tonight as my 14 days were up. I wanted to give the 8 plus a try and see how I liked it compared to the X. Never had a plus before. Have a 7 before/now. After only a few hours I already miss the X. The 8 plus is gigantic to me. I’ve played with it before in the store multiple times and knew it was big but now that I’m using it, wow! I’m thinking the X is the perfect size for me but just had to try this thing. I’m going to try and give it some time but not sure I’ll make it, . Will update if I go back to the X .

    Don’t worry, I did the same thing. TWICE. Decided the X was for me in the end. Been happy ever since. I want to try an android phone, but don’t want to waste the time or money knowing I will come back to the iPhone after a month or two.

    Yeah the X really is the perfect size! I had gone back to a plus model for a day and it was way too big for me. It is indeed gigantic after using the X. I think we will get the update soon :-)

    Funny. I just held a 7 Plus for the first time since November and it felt gigantic! I had forgotten what a huge device it was.

    It’s literally huge for no reason....if the bezels were cut down the form factor would be much better. A little too late for that though

    I'm 2 weeks in and was taking photos of my 8+ to sell.
    Was like whoa this 8+ is huge. Didn't think I'd the X form-factor/size, but I am.
