    I’ll upgrade only if there is a 6.5 inch screen iPhone. If not I’ll stay put. I have no problems with my X. It would only seem worth it to me if the screen is larger since I watch a lot of movies on my phone.

    I’ve never bought an iPhone on finance, always bought outright so it’s unlocked. So it depends if I have the funds when the new batch are released

    Im happy with my X though so I might decide to wait another year

    I have to wait until January since that’s when I bought the iPhone X but with me working part time currently, I cannot afford to upgrade anyways. I’m happy with my 256GB version

    I'll agree with you there...it's decent but there are other that are better..

    Good example - beach weekend with the family, I took the X and the S8+ (no SIM) along ...
    Did a few comparison shots and decided to use the S8+ as a camera for the weekend.

    I'm using the iOS 12 beta at the moment and not seeing anything that's a game changer
    I have the HTC U12+ as my Android phone currently, and it's actually better than the S8+.

    I always say I want something with better low light but then again I don’t take a whole lot of low light pictures.

    Then again, again. I might just take more if the pics turned out better.
    I don't take a ton of pics in any conditions, but I like to know that I'll be able to get a good one in any condition. I honestly think Apple could do better even indoors with daylight coming through the window. It does pretty good when you're close to the subject. If you're farther away though there's lots of noise and it turns out darker than I'd like.

    I think they're a ton of devices out there with better quality, inclusive of low light and sharpness.
    Lots of details are lost in iPhone photos... If the lighting isn't perfect a lot is lost

    Even though I'm on the Upgrade Program this year I likely won't be doing it. Biggest reason is this year is going to be flat out buying Watch 4's for my wife and myself. Unless the next iPhone X sized phone (don't want a Plus size) is going to be better and a smaller price per month on the upgrade program with more storage that's the only thing. Paying $50/month right now for the 64GB model and wouldn't mind getting back to 128+ like my 7+. I'm not feeling crunched yet but I'm more mindful of how much local music, photos, videos I keep on it.

    The photos on my iPhone X look only "meh" when compared to the photos to my Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 XL has a single camera and can do bokeh better than the X. There's little-to-no noise in low light photos on the Pixel 2. Hopefully Apple will up their camera game this year.

    I am happy with my X. Running IOS12 betas have been a joy (and the fact that this year seems to be a light year in terms of OS updates and hardware updates for the phones) I will hold onto the X for another year. Camera is good enough (and will only improve with OS updates), don't really have any glaring issues where a faster processor and more ram (rumored 4gb vs 3) would make a vast difference in day to day usage.

    I've been really happy with my X since launch day. I don't think I'll be upgrading this year, since I'm thinking of getting the new Pixel 3 XL.

    I will never get iPhones ever again because i still have reception issues and everytime i went to store or call them, they said Apple is not awared of this problem. Everybody else is fine with their A1901 and theres no problem with my softwares.

    Btw Dejanh, have you ever get a response from Apple engineering?

    I'm finding that the X with iOS 12 for me works so well now that I am really thinking I may sit this round of upgrades. The phone has been nothing but stellar, through and through, and the enhancements of iOS 12 really lifted it another few steps. I quite literally have no complaints about this phone any more.

    Anyone share the same sentiment?

    I'm in the "keep my X" camp. I'm happy with it and iOS 12 (although the beta has been rocky for me) adds enough to keep me interested. I couldn't see Apple doing anything groundbreaking with this years iPhone that would compel me to upgrade. At most I see a faster processor, next generation FaceID, (negligible) battery improvements and a camera bump. None of that will motivate me to upgrade this year.

    So as of now, I don't think I plan on upgrading. We will see what happens in September, though.

    I will be keeping mine as well. I don't own an Apple Watch and am anxiously waiting to see what version 4 looks like and that is where my money will go this Fall.

    FID works better with iOS 12 so will just keep my X. It's my second one since release so only 5 months old. Swapped from grey to silver and made $100. Feels like a new phone all around. Not forking out another $1500AUD plus this year.

    Agreed. The X low light photos are trash. I did have a s9 Plus for awhile and that camera blew away the X in low light photos.

    Love my X. Bought 256GB so I’m in for the long haul.

    Waiting on iOS 12 general release and Walla new phone
    Glad to see they are focused on performance and stability on iOS 12 but with that said, so far to me it’s not a real noticeable change. Maybe by release it will. Other than that, the features to iOS 12 feel very minimal compared to years past and it didn’t make my phone feel like a new phone at all.

    I will upgrade if the rumors about dual sim are true . But only if it is available in the Oled versions mad not the simpler LCD version. Then I can put my work Android phone in the garbage bin

    I think that this is exactly the point. It's supposed to be a release that fixes a whole host of outstanding issues and polishes the OS to a stable platform. iOS 11 was such a mess. So far using iOS 12 feels like they're accomplishing what they set out to do. I don't need new features for the sake of features and at the expense of stability.

    I will never get iPhones ever again because i still have reception issues and everytime i went to store or call them, they said Apple is not awared of this problem. Everybody else is fine with their A1901 and theres no problem with my softwares.

    No, nothing specific. I resolved one of my issues, which was the phone dropping LTE. the problem was with how the phone was registering to the network, namely it wasn't correctly setting the Attach APN. This caused constant dropouts and I think was an oversight on Apple's part when it came to compatibility with older plans on certain networks. I solved it with a custom profile. The other general reception issues remained, though they seem to have improved with latest releases. I don't have any particular issues in iOS 12.

    I will only upgrade if my X is lost or stolen. (But I only allow myself to upgrade every 24-36 months, so I knew I was hanging on to this phone for a while.)

    I'm completely satisfied with my X for now. If I upgrade at this point it would only be because I want the latest and not necessarily the greatest. Even though I do miss the screen size of my 7 plus I'm going to stick with what I have.

    I say it every year, I won’t upgrade, but I’m thinking that I may stick it out this year. I’m hoping iOS 12 will refresh the X for me. I usually do Beta but withheld to obtain the fresh phone feeling when it’s released.

    I have a SIM Free X, and look forward to getting my wife an iPhone 8 Plus when the price drops as it typically does. This will hopefully allow me to sell my iPhone X and wait for the X Plus SiM Free (if not available at launch) by using her 6S Plus for a month or two. Otherwise the new larger size is more to my liking.

    Will definitely be upgrading especially if it’s a larger size. I miss the size of the plus.
