    You can get all what you just listed from a 7, 8 or even an SE. Sorry but the X doesn't offer enough to justify the cost compared to its stablemates. Maybe I keep my 8, maybe not. But I'm still keeping 3 bones in my pocket and with the other 30 I can get a 9.7 iPad.

    That’s what I’ve done. I have a 7 and a 9.7 iPad Pro. Good enough for me.

    But that X sure is purty!

    Prices are insane but I guess that’s where we have allowed the market to go.

    I’ve never got into comparing screens. To me they’re all good. I have a 7 and it’s not like I can’t read text or photos look bad. I think it’s just another marketing tool to raise prices. But I’m sure it’s important enough to justify the cost to others.
    To me brightness and contrast to sun light ratio are the top features for me on a screen. I like a good color reproduction on one too, but the first two features are what I look at first. Think that is why I like the 1520, Elite X3, and 950 XL so much. The Samsung line always have had good screens too. iPhones sit some where in between it all, but this is the first time they have went OLED so it will be interesting to see how this X plays out over 3 yrs. The 950's are going on 3 yrs and they seem solid still from most readers here that I see chime in, spare the occasional mechanical failures that are common (camera modules, batteries, etc), this is good to hear. Microsoft pumped out a couple of winners to last over the years which was good considering it was their last efforts.

    I like in a large apartment building with lots of people, this weekend I have seen three people inadvertently trigger the SOS alarm on their iphone X's when trying to restart or shut the phone off. I guess the new iphone X needs a manual.

    It feels good has that feel of quality, from what I've handled of one, but I honestly think it's expensive at half the price.

    I think the 8 is a better proposition than the X.

    I’m not someone who regularly drops his phone, but accidents happen. There is no way I would spend that much for a phone and then an additional $500 to repair broken glass. It’s beautiful, but they need to improve on this before I purchase one.

    If you buy Apple Care upfront ($199) you will be protected for two years against all but obvious user abuse. I made sure of that when I purchased my 8+. I was told that Apple would replace two dropped and shattered phones in that time frame. Seems a worthwhile investment should you decide to spend that many dollars. Also, anyone that goes naked without a good sturdy case is just asking for disaster to happen.

    I was half thinking of ordering one. But the usable screen real estate is same as on my Iphone 7+. Using my X3 yesterday I realized how much I love the larger screen.

    I saw this on Thursday and may see how that is if it comes out - a 6.7" Iphone

    I pulled the trigger yesterday on a 64gb IPhone 10. So far I love the device. I wanted to wait for the plus size but took advantage of the Apple upgrade program. Walked into the store,played for a few minutes and walked away with the new device. Yes it is smaller but not an issue.

    I'm jealous. I bought the 8+ and am now advertising my 8 for trade on X.

    So far I'm mostly happy. The only oddity is the bar across the bottom. I love both having the home button.
