    I think you don't see it anymore after a few days of usage.

    But what I don't understand. Why is the "homebar" everytime visible? I hope you can hide it in the accessibilty settings. Or in iOS11.1 it dissapears after a few seconds.

    Yeah, actually comparisons with the 8 would be interesting since they both have the same point width.

    Great screenshots. Thanks for posting them.

    Having seen those screenshots, I realize that you don't get that much more usable screen space with the X compared to the 8 Plus. Most of the additional .4" of screen space (do I have that number right?) is taken up by the home-button-bar-thing and the notch area at the top the screen. And the screen on the X is taller, not necessarily wider than the 8 Plus.

    Hm.

    The more I see pics of X the more that notch bothers me.

    You can change it. :) Click the little gear just below the thread title. It should be sitting atop the very first post (your post), on the right.

    Sorry but the X has to be wider next year.

    It's calling out for an 8 plus.

    Let's see some screen shots it next to the 8 4.7".

    The X is lacking in landscape mode... lots of wasted space. I think it looks great in portrait, and thankfully that's mostly what I use :)

    I'm not a huge fan of the long and skinny display... wish they'd widen it up a bit.

    This confirms my thoughts. In reality, the X is a beta release. Has lots to sort out before it's ready for prime time. The 8 Plus is the safe choice for now for most consumers.

    Here is the iPhone 8 compared to the iPhone X. On this comparison the iPhone X wins.

    It sort of seems that way, doesn't it? It makes you wonder what we are going see next year. Will the design change at all? Will we see a larger version of the iPhone X? Most likely, for the latter.

    IF there is any sort of drastic design change next year based on the design of the X, current X buyers are gonna feel shafted. Doubt that's going to happen by next year though.

    8 vs X screenshots are interesting as the two are physically similar in size. Awesome how much more screen / content you get with the X.

    I like the wider screen of the 8 plus. The X looks like an elongated 7.

    The X will be known as the iPhone Notch
