    Wasn't meant as a slur (and I'm sure you didn't take it that way), but iPhone users is just so inefficient. Guess I was channeling E.B. White.
    Sounds more like you were channeling your inner Yosemite Sam 😀.

    Of course I didn't take it as a slur. I have my PhD in sarcasm but I majored in smartass.

    Can’t wait to start asking people whether they still love their X :)

    When people realize they can only unlock their X via Face ID only and no Touch ID or home button, there may be historical numbers for returns. On the bright side, it may reduce texting while driving with the new restrictions.

    Applesheep eat whatever Cupertino feeds them. But they’ll probably keep their iPhone SE so they can actually do work. They’ll carry their ‘X’ to show it off. It’s kind of like having a trophy significant other to show off and a plain but really functional spouse at home.

    JMHO.... LOL

    Yes, the Iphone X grabs me. It a beast of a phone. The processor, the GPU, the Animate Emoji in REAL TIME feature, the dual camera stabilization, light mode when taking snapshots, VR gaming, wireless charging, waterproofing and more. How could you not be impressed with what this phone is bringing to the table? Granted we have only seen press release type stuff but with that A11 processor that can calculate 600 billion calculations in a second. its the hardware for the ages. If you are not impressed, nothing impresses you.
    Best response I've seen yet.Yes, it's a grand but not that much more than the Pixel 2 XL, the Note 8 and maybe other high end phones. You only have to understand why Apple commands a higher price than to walk into an Apple store. It's called sales and after sales support. Worth every penny you spend.

    I really have to agree with you on AppleCare. I’ve had it on all of my devices and have had screens replaced and devices replaced. After sales care is something at which Apple excels.

    Fist bump for the Spinal Tap reference.

    But that raises a point, we are to pronounce the X not as the letter "x" but as the Roman numeral "ten." But iPhone 8 is out concurrently so the next logical progression is nine, then ten again. Will it be iPhone ten.two or iPhone ten (2019) before we get to the louder eleven?

    Which begs the question..... Where's the IX 'er 9 or even the 8s and 8s+. Apple has lost its way in the world of third grade math.

    Phonetically, "nine" sounds exactly like "dog" in Chinese...
    .. which explains a lot.

    Not a chance they removed touch ID and the home button and are still without a headphone jack switching to this phone would only make me lose features (I'm sticking with my KEYone it may not be a powerful but it's far more useful)

    It's a shame we have to resort to name calling like "iFolks" because I do like Apple products. I try not to get into sophomoric pettiness but those iMbeciles grate my cheese sometimes.
    What's the "i" stand for or equate to anyone know?

    Dunno my elite x3 cost almost a grand. At the time I thought it worth the price.

    I was at the phone store today buying my FIL a new feature phone to replace his ten year old Samsung. (He's 83 and doesn't want to learn anything new.)

    I played with the Iphone X. It was pretty much the 8 with an OLED screen and no home button.

    I showed the salss guy a picture taken with my 950xl, my Iphone 7 and the 10. The screen on the 950xl and the X blew away the one on the 7. The Iphone 8+ was the same as the 7 so no need to compare.

    The X felt nice but not sure if the extra 0.3 inch screen is worth it.

    More like “intelligence” of those who know they are purchasing a product that will have high resale value, has a growing app ecosystem, from a company who provides world class support and won’t be leaving the market anytime soon.

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    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.

    You nailed it. They cost that much because we're willing to pay.

    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.
