    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 perfectly happy with my X and told myself I will not upgrade, but I think I say that most every year

    It depends what Uncle Tim has for me this September. Since I got my X in November on release day under iPhone Upgrade Program I won’t be upgrading until at least November this year.

    I started buying outright so I’m on “Go” for the new one. Might look at the upgrade program this time.

    I’ll be one of them. Two reasons, one is that I just re-contracted for the X on the 2nd day of launch so it’ll be another 24 mths and the other is that the X is a 10th anniversary iPhone so it’s somewhat a special edition.

    Even when there’re new better models of the X this year, I’ll not be tempted to purchase it, even at full retail price.

    And for that reason, I’ll most likely not sell the X to get the new one. But, I’m still getting the new one.

    Yes, I am. Some of us echoed this same sentiment in a different thread. My current iPhone X is enjoyable to use. The rumored 6 ½ inch iPhone is not something I’m interested in nor am I interested in a 5.8” model. Still, there’s always a 1% chance I’ll upgrade.

    My X is good as it is (even with my dislike for photo quality since iOS 10) ... Don't see the need to get a new device come September... All else fails I jump over to S8+ just to change it up occasionally.

    I don’t think I will be upgrading.

    I’ve got two major trips across the pond next year, one will be a month in Spain. I’ll be renting a house for the month.

    So I’m going to be very frugal this year into next.

    Happy with the X and don't want a phone any bigger than it right now. Spent too many years with iPhone Plus phones and Samsung Notes. Got very tired of carrying around those size phones. My Note 8 has been sitting in my glove box for months for this very reason. Probably should sell it at this point.

    Thought the same thing but we'll see. If there's no staggered release, I'll probably pay 2 payments and try to get whatever the next one is called. We'll see....

    Hmmm. At the moment I say I'm not upgrading, but I say that every year. And I upgrade every year. I am trying my hardest to get myself on a 2 yr upgrade though. It'll save me money, plus the upgrades will seem like a bigger deal if I wait 2 yrs.

    At this point, I think the ONLY thing that could make me want to upgrade is /significantly/ better camera quality, battery life. I don’t think this year will be the year of major software enhancements to the new models. Then again, I don’t know what’s behind the doors at good ole Apple so it’s all up in the air for now.

    The X has a decent camera, but Apple really needs to step it up. Especially low/moderate light. Good lighting they're great, but even indoors during day time I get much better pics on my Android phone. And I'm pretty sure you're right. I don't see anything major coming to iOS 12 that won't come to the X.

    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

    Good for you! The X itself (I bought the space gray, 256GB) already costs a lot of money and getting the newer, larger-screened version of it might cost even more. Besides, I'm still using my jet black 7 Plus with another cellular plan.

    I'll only get next year's iPhone when I'm due for another re-contract, so will see what it brings then.

    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.
