    Sticking with my 8Plus... but I do think these phones are amazing. Prices are high, but I expected that.

    Throw in a new case and screen protector and we’re talking 2 grand.

    Yup, I’ll be holding out, hopping I win one if those iMore contests! Haha!
    And if you want the Apple Watch Series 4 (Bluetooth/GPS only) throw in another $400. The price for both will be about $2,500, or a decent down payment for a new car.

    I am really really debating on getting one with a Series 4 Apple Watch. Not sure yet.

    Yes, 256GB model. My wife will inherit my current X. I miss a larger phone.

    This was hands down one of the most boring Apple launch events ever. You could literally watch them fish for content and fill time with silly pointless information or “partners” (Bethesda demo anyone?). I actually turned the stream off after a while because I couldn’t take it any more. Anyway, I’m not preordering. The X was just literally re-released as an Xs and Xs Max (if they ever release a larger version, is it going to be Xs Maxi Plus?). What a joke.

    I’m looking to pick up that Series 4 watch though once they pop up on Craigslist, only for the larger size and slimmer profile.

    I guess our versions of "super fast" are different. Touch ID 2nd Gen is what I consider super fast compared to Face ID unlocking.

    I was considering it for the dual SIM card support, but the phone has to be unlocked. So, I'll probably pass for now. I will likely pre-order the Series 4 watch, though.

    I’m sticking to my iPhone 6s Plus for now. Awaiting the verdict on the OLED screen, rumour has it it might not be from the same supplier as the X.

    I like the cheap tozo cases or girly cases but now I'd feel horrible buying one to put on a 1900.00 phone

    I will probably get a new XS, but I am not going to worry about being the first to preorder one this time around. I still love my iPhone X and with the exception of the larger battery and the new gold color, I don’t see the “I have to have it now” factor as I did when the iPhone X was released.

    From what I gather thus far, none of the new iPhone models made me want to upgrade from my current iPhone X.

    I thought you went back to a 8?

    I thought about it but the prices not being more in line with the 7's and 8's and keeping the X's premium is really turning me off. I use the Upgrade Program but still. Was hoping to do an XS in the middle storage tier vs my 64GB X for the same price but that isn't going to happen. Also thought about the 64GB Max to get a larger screen (had 6s+ and 7+ before the X) but not sure I want to go back to a Max sized phone. The A12 sounds great until I realize I probably won't see a huge boost from it other than photo stuff because I don't do any serious gaming on my phone.


    The photo and camera improvements are nice, and I could do an XR and get most of those, but the XR has a way worse screen in terms of resolution at least vs the X and the new XS series. It's actually a lower HxW resolution than the old Plus series in a larger screen which makes no sense. It should have been nnnn x 1080 where nnnn is whatever width is needed to make a 1080p video get the side letterboxing like the X and XS series.

    I did, I just acquired a silver iPhone X and I am just going to use the speaker phone more on phone calls and two hands when I using it for emails, messaging and social media.

    I just can’t give up using my iPhone X and will just have to adapt to two hand usage and yes I still have my iPhone 8 model. There is something that just keeps calling me back to my iPhone X.

    I’m going to hold off for a while even though I’m wanting to get back to a plus screen. I was a plus user for years last being the 8Plus and then went to the X. I’ve gotten use to the X size and its been a great phone so far. There’s no difference except a new A12 chip and bigger screen for the max. Now, I will be pre ordering the watch 4 from the series 2.

    The larger model is not for me and I am with you about waiting, except of a larger battery, not much to make me want to get one on the first pre orders like I did with the original iPhone X.

    Is this the first time that you have enrolled in the Apple upgrade program?

    Yes, for the last five iterations I’ve paid the cost vs doing the upgrade program. I figured hell I do this every year might as well enroll. My wife has done it now two years straight.

    Yeah I'm planning to do my first watch this year. Been using the Fitbit charge series but the heart rhythm stuff on watch is really important to me due to some recent health stuff so I want it and Fitbit has been having some things go on lately that are turning me off.
