    Happy with the leap/reduced bezels/FaceID? Or ready to go X(s) plus size?

    Are you missing or Ready to go back to the standard 4.7/5.5 16:9 and TouchID?

    The reason I got the X is to have a relatively big screen and a not so huge body. Mission accomplished. I'm good for at least another year, if not longer.

    I don't miss TouchID in the least bit, and I like the screen size, however am ready for whatever the larger one will be this month.

    X was released in November.

    Prefer form factor to + here.

    I’m still using a 6s Plus myself, but used a friends’ X a lot the last few weeks. Wouldn’t miss Touch ID, but the X feels too small for me. I’m going for the Xs Plus (?) this year. It’ll be perfect for me, but phone and a big screen.

    I love the X form factor, gestures and FaceID. I have no desire to go back to TouchID or the big bezels. I'm looking forward to having the X in a Plus size.

    you don't have concerns of XS plus being more unwieldy than plus was? just curious

    X is more than good enough. I'm good. Of course if it broke, I think I would go cheaper and get an 8 plus. I just don't use my phone all that much. I use my iPad and desktop way more. Desk job and all that.

    Touch ID awhile is a very good form of biometric security, it’s in the past for me, face ID has replaced that with more intuitive controls with gestures. Apple executed the new form factor and Face ID exactly what I expected, but there certainly is room for improvement with Face ID.

    Not missed touch ID at all but will be looking forward to going to a bigger device which will be the 6.5 plus.

    Not really. I never found the Plus models unwieldy: I've had Plus models since the 6 Plus, and I adapted pretty easily.

    What’s “touch ID”? Sounds familiar

    I really love the X size and features so I’m pretty sure I’ll be sticking with whatever replaces it next month. I’ll give the X+ a chance and check it out to see if it might make me move up in size but, I use my iPad for consuming media or browsing the web so a larger phone probably would get utilized to the fullest in my situation. I don’t miss touchid at all..

    I do a bit as it will be heavy at that size with the glass back and if you use a case. I find the X heavy enough, personally.

    I’ve had a 6 Plus, 6s Plus, 7 Plus and 8 Plus. Currently have an X, and I love Face ID. It felt so small at first but I almost consider the physical size vs screen size to be perfect. I’m currently grappling with the decision to either keep the X or go to the XS plus.

    I guess I have decide if the bigger screen size will be worth the extra cost or not. The idea of a bigger screen is tempting but the form factor is nice to use in bed or when wanting to use one handed.

    I had three problems with the X on launch: 1. Battery life, 2. Screen size, and 3. Face ID. I've dealt with these problems since launch and what I'll say it this: battery life has not gotten any better for me, I still find the screen too narrow for my liking (coming from the Plus models of 6/6s/7/8), but Face ID has grown on me.

    Ever since rumors of the Plus size X started, I knew it would definitely address one problem (screen size) and most likely address the second (battery life). So this year I should be far happier with the newest iPhone than I have been since last November. That being said, I was very much against Face ID when it was announced and never thought I would be fully on board. It has grown on me a lot, the only time it irritates me is when I'm laying in bed and want to grab my phone quick but because I'm laying sideways I have to enter the password.

    I would also imagine the X plus being a good bit heavier, think the 8 plus is 202g or so, expect the X plus to be 220g+, this might not seem much but i had the 7 plus which weighed 188g and you do notice straight away the extra weight coming from the 7 plus, so anyone upgrading from a X to the X plus will be shocked at the weight difference, X=174g X plus=220g+, that's 46g or so, believe me that is very significant.

    I honestly love the iPhone X. Face ID is excellent and the size is great, but I do miss the plus size phone.

    I’m excited for the larger version. iPad style apps in landscape mode is gonna be great.

    I feel great about all aspects of the X. When I pick up my wife's 8, I feel guilty she doesn't have the X (she will be getting the X+).
