That absolutely sucks. I was very happy that the X was shrinking the physical dimensions of the phone. For me, I don't want the biggest screen possible. I want a big enough screen. The X solves that without being unwieldy. The Plus didn't fit a lot of places comfortably (back pockets, front pockets, cup holders, etc.) It also isn't easy to use one handed. I could understand Apple wanting to sell the most expensive phone for more profit IF there wasn't an accompanying usability issue as well.But Apple will make features exclusive to the larger iPhones, because they want to sell the consumer the most expensive iPhone. That's called marketing. I know it doesn't seem fair, but from a sales point of view, I understand why Apple would do this.
For me personally, I would purchase the larger model iPhone anyways even if it didn't include exclusive features, because I want a larger display.
