The NOTCH! So fugly...
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.

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.

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.
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.
