    Actually, costed me $1,319 in Canada. I couldve now bought the Galaxy S9 here for cheaper at $960 or the S9+ for $1100.

    There have been plenty of threads on this topic.

    One example.

    Yes, there are other people besides you that were not happy with the iPhone X (for whatever reason) and purchased a different phone.

    No regerts.

    I bought one, used it and didn't really like it, sold it. No regrets about trying it.

    I drove 150 miles on the day after launch day to get one. Returned it due to eye strain and a horrible blue tint shift. Tried again a couple months later and returned that one for the eye strain issue.

    I don't "regret" buying them. Because it didn't really cost me anything but a tank of gas, and a nice 1/2 day trip to Tucson.

    No regrets but it’s interesting that I know people who returned it for being too small compared to the iPhone 8 Plus. It’s mind boggling what Marketing can do to people. The screen on the x is technically wider but not taller in landscape on a plus while people look at the plus and have been conditioned to think bigger is better. This is the first main model that has taken me away from the plus models since the 6 and kept me happy. Battery is comparable to the plus and the phone is fast. Cam is not rated as high as the galaxy 8-9 but the difference in quality is so small as to be inconsequential for MOST common users who just want a camera. I’ve always done photography on an iPhone and gotten impressive results for a phone cam so I can’t wait to put this thing through its paces during a hike or something. My one big gripe is they changed the design language of the hardware then tacked on a whole bunch of gestures for an OS made for buttons. This translates to a UI experience that is inconsistent when compared to usual apple standards of “it just works” I’m guessing with apple mandating devs to develop versions that play nice for the X we will see this shrink in time. I’m guessing they are re writing large chunks of iOS 12 and make it more native for the x and future models based on the new design language.

    I definitely do. I saved up to buy it outright, money is not the issue. My experience buying it was a full blown nightmare. I miss the convenience of TouchID. I miss the large screen. IDGAF. I had the iPhone 8 Plus and I honestly enjoyed it more.

    No regrets. If I lost my X I would go and buy another today!

    No regrets here. I knew exactly what I needed, what I wanted and what I bought. It's been a straight up delight using the X, and I don't see that changing any time soon.

    Now, using said X to drunk dial my ex last night, that's something I regret. Deeply.

    Bought mine on launch day and don't regret it, but my sim card is now in a Pixel 2 XL. Might use it back when 11.3 comes out.

    You miss the large screen? The plus models have a 5.5in screen and the the iPhone X has a 5.8in screen, so you’re saying you miss the smaller screen right?

    Look at these photos:https://twitter.com/stroughtonsmith/status/907714509141364738

    If you use the pythagorean theorem, you'll find the Plus has a bigger screen surface area.

    Sure but to get .00000000000001" larger screen real estate you have to lug around a ginormous phone... PASS

    Sorry, but the notch makes the top part of the screen effectively useless, the reserved area at the bottom for the Home Line uses up more space, and the curved corners take up even more space. You simply cannot compare that with a screen where you can use all of the available space.

    No regrets at all here. I mistakenly purchased the 8+ when it originally came out (came from the 7) and the fact that I could barely fit the device in my jeans pocket really didn't sit well with me. Ended up going back to my SE and sold both my 7 and 8+ while I waited to pre-order the X. I couldn't be happier with the device.

    Only regret I have is not getting the 256 model but then again I barely have 30GB used up in the past 3 years so I figured by the time I used up 100GB I'll be on to my next iPhone.
