i have a 6s now. have been looking forward to buying the iPhone X. according to the videos, it really looks like X has such a great fit/finish. i love the white/silver. its almost like its a german designed device. but today i changed my mind. i will wait another year. its not the notch actually (though i do hate it). it started when i was thinking about cabling actually. still having a MacBook Air, and, my entire cabling still therefore being USB-A based. i began looking at buying a Lightning-USB-C along with the 29W adapter for fast charging. but that doesn't make any sense of course, since i frequently charge my phone directly from the USB port of my MacBook Air (USB-A) port. since I'm always traveling i wanted to have 1 adapter that can fast charge my mac and my phone. i will purchase the MacBook after it updates next time. maybe by that time apple next year will include an adapter in that is USB-C type. my change of mind started with cabling but quickly again focused on the notch... and then the tradeoffs with the X when in landscape mode for viewing. then theres the "bar" at the base to go to the home screen. not very elegant for it to be present so much of the time. then i saw chris pirillo's video about the X. i think he is right in all the correct ways. my head again looks again at that stainless steel banded white/silver machine and can't wait to hold in my hand once it gets into the apple stores. but for now, i have decided to just keep my 6s another year. 1 year to think about if the 2018 model will be called iPhone 9 or X.1 or whatever. and if the next version of X is still having apple embrace the notch. or is the next gen going to be able to have Touch ID underneath the screen? or will Face ID have caused the iOS Ui to be much more significantly developed than it is now? the thing is, i was also going to buy an X for my wife as well. she has a 5s now and really needs an update to her phone. but we bought an iPhone 8 for her tonight (pre-ordered). with an A11 chip that is as fast as the X benchmarks. the 8 is looking more and more like the winner. just 1 person's story.
