I see a lot of people talking about how the 8+ is superior to the X (and any normal sized iPhone) for watching videos or movies on their phone. The #1 reason I went with an 8+ is the wider keyboard and better feel in hand. I may watch a YouTube video here and there on my phone, but 95% of the videos/movies I watch are on a tablet, phone or streamed to my tv. The biggest phone I've used is the 6.3" Note 8. Even that was inferior to any tablet, tv or computer screen. I just feel like if someone watches a ton of media, they would buy a tablet or want to watch it on something bigger than even the largest phone screen. Ipads aren't exactly cheap, but there are plenty of cheap options. I got my daughter a 11.6" Android tablet for $150 a few years ago. It even came with a detachable keyboard. I'm not judging anyone who watches a lot of video on their phones, I just feel like tablets are so cheap it seems like a no brainer to watch on something larger than a "big" 5.5" phone. YouTube is nice on my 8+, but my phone is the last choice I'd make if I have other devices available.
