    I'm probably not alone in this, but until recently, I really enjoyed my X. Over the last couple of weeks, for whatever reason, I'm becoming annoyed with things. The biggest being Face ID. It drives me absolutely batty when it fails. Maybe that says more about me. Idk, but it never happened with Touch ID. So much so, that I'm making a move. Obviously, I'm out of my return window, so I'm trying to maximize what I can get. I miss my 7Plus so much now, and that's what I want. I've got a place that's willing to trade a 7Plus for this X and throw me some cash as well. In the end, all I can say is "I tried." It's just not for me, and I'm going back to what works for me.

    Interesting!

    It has been the other way around, for me.
    TouchID was unreliable if I was too hot or eating or whatever small, dumb reason it found to fail, unlike FaceID which has proven me to be flawless.

    Why not go to the 8 plus?

    I've only had the X for only a week, but I can say I will only be going forward hoping for the X plus.
    The only thing I'll miss about the X is the small size.

    I can totally empathize. I thought of going back to my 7 Pluses too but decide to stick it out. I’m liking both Xes more now. Face ID works most the time for me, now, so I can live with it. I still kinda want a 7 Plus or 8 Plus or Note 8 too but I already have 3 phones (I like phones, they’re fun) and I need to be satisfied with my current toys.

    Good luck and let us know, of course, whatcha end up with.

    No device will please ‘everyone’ so with that being said, if you feel the iPhone 7 Plus fits your needs best, then go get one. It’s your decision , your money, and you don’t have to explain to anyone why you chose to get rid of your iPhone X. Frankly put, it’s your business.

    Every time I take my brand new iPhone 8 out of the box to use, I immediately start swiping the screen after powering it on. Using its home button to unlock it is now a nuisance to ‘me’. I end up putting it back in its box and go about my business of using the iPhone X. ...

    Sounds like you should just sell it.

    I’m forced to use home-button iPhones for work. The thing that gets me is the frigg’n size of those bezels. They’d been fine for me...until they weren’t. That’s where the X shines...for me anyways.

    I actually went back to my 8 plus. Everything about it except the screen is equal or better in my opinion to the X. I like the X a lot, but the 8 Plus suits me more.

    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.

    I suffer from the same ailment. You only live once so as long as you’re getting at least some enjoyment out of trying devices...Enjoy! Congrats on your 7+!

    I’ve had the X since launch day and I still love it! I’ve been using it without a case nor a screen protector and the experience is so much better.

    I’m not going back. I’ve come completely into the X fold. There’s no more remorse. No more desire for my 7 Plus. I don’t miss... Those. Huge. Bezels. ...anymore. After using my Huawei Mate 9 (which is a nice alternative device) for a while I realize just how good the X is.

    Just moving forward from here, the gestures have become natural to me. The home button now seems foreign.

    I adapted to gestures pretty quick and having had coming the LG V20 enjoy the return to tap-to-wake. The gestures just seem natural at this point.

    To me, Iphone x is the ultimate enthusiast phone, and I don't foresee many people who don't really buy expensive tech embrace it very much.

    I felt the same after using the Note 8 for awhile. Great phone but still missed the reliability of my 8+

    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.

    In the end you have to get what works best for your everyday needs, myself I love my iPhone X and think it might be the best iPhone yet and I have had every model since the first aluminum one. But, thats just my opinion and I hope everything works out for the best.

    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...
