    Oh I can't give you advice on what you like, but I personally love my X. Didn't think I would but I do. Keyboard is a little funky looking the way they got it scrunched. You'll have to go play with it at a store first. I came from an 8 plus.

    You should definitely get an iPhone 8 Plus or an X Settling for an iPhone 7 Plus don’t make no sense if you can afford either an 8 Plus or X as the iPhone 7 Plus is already been on the market for 18 months by now It’s up to you to choose for a bigger screen of the Plus or the Face ID and the longer screen of the X Good luck in your choice

    The screen on the X may seem smaller after using the 7 Plus. But you might like it anyway.

    The only trade off I experienced was the smaller screen of the iPhone X compared to the 7 Plus I came from. I know the X’s display is technically larger but that’s definitely not the way it seems. That said, I’m still happy I got the X.

    My only X gripe besides FID is no battery percentage. BS if you ask me at least give us the choice.

    I really can’t think you enough it’s a real hard decision for me loved google and my Samsung gear 2 but just seams boring now watch doesn’t seem fun or do what I want it to do anymore I guess because of tizen Samsung uses plus tired of spending a $1000 on a phone that takes for ever to get any updates I have the Samsung 8+ Unlocked and still no updates. Again thanks for all your help love reading your post!
    Have a wonderful Day.

    I can imagine that it is a hard decision. I agree that going with either an iPhone 8 Plus or an iPhone X would be wise. If you really loved your iPhone 7 Plus, the 8 Plus might be a good choice. I agree with the advice about going to an Apple Store, and playing with both would be wise. Good luck and keep us posted!

    It is hard to decide looked at lunch today at the Apple store guy told me Verizon will give me $499 for my 8+ towards a iPhone X on credits of $20 a month that makes it harder to decide

    I had the 8 for 2 weeks and then returned it for the X. Very happy with my choice after using the X for over a month now.

    I was concerned at 1st about gestures and faceID but after using them, my concerns were unfounded. Gestures are very intuitive and I really don't think I could ever go back to a home buttoned iPhone again. faceID works or fails, at about the same rate as touchID did for me.

    The X is a great phone but it is a tad bit on the expensive side.

    Good luck whatever you decide.

    It’s a hard choice between between a plus model and the X. If you are more comfortable using the home button versus the gesture concepts, I would go with an 8 or and 8 plus.

    If you have an open mind and the financial resources to buy the X and are patient on learning the gesture concepts, I would go with the iPhone X.

    Being I was a long time user of the Blackberry OS10 system and loved using gestures, the iPhone X and using gestures felt natural to me. Just my two cents worth.

    All the rumors currently point to an "X Plus" next year that has a 6.5" screen. We won't likely won't know for sure until September.

    The battery percentage is still there, just not visible on standby screen. You have to swipe down from the right corner to see the percentage.

    I'm guessing he is aware of that, just that many here would like the percentage to always be there. My thought is Apple should have an option where you can swap out the battery icon for a battery percentage -- it would use about the same space, so it wouldn't cause issues with the notch. As I've also stated, I think Apple should give the option where FaceID can unlock the phone, without the need for a swipe, while leaving the default to require a swipe.

    ... or superimpose the number over the icon itself.

    Technically it does unlock the phone, but I assume that you want it to go straight to home. I like it the way it is, because I always read the notifications on the lock screen first, but I'm ok with the non-default option.

    I don't mind the having the X unlock come up to the lock screen, needing to swipe to the home screen, and would likely leave it that way -- but I know several here don't care for that and would prefer having FaceID open the phone to the Home screen without a swipe. It would be nice if Apple offered the option.

    Or swipe right from home screen, still not visible all the time.

    How so? I’ve had the 3.5”, 4”, 4.7”, 5.5” as well as the 5.8” display of the iPhone X and yet, I don’t find it more difficult to type on it than the others.

    I found it harder simply because the keyboard(because of the screen being narrower) was narrower than my previous 7+. More susceptible(at least for me) to fat fingering.

    For the Apple keyboard, coming from a Plus phone, it required a bit of adjustment, though not that huge -- was more psychological than physical for me, I think. OTOH, I typically use GBoard for typing -- and I actually find the smaller size more convenient for swiping, since it is a smaller distance to swipe between letters.
