Gave my wife my 8 plus after I got my x and it feels so weird and awkward now. I can do everything much faster on my X.

Hey all you left handed people upgrading from the rose gold iPhone 6S to the silver X, who preordered from T-Mobile, but then cancelled and just picked it up at an Apple store, and on the way you stopped at Dairy Queen and saw an old friend of yours from high school...now that you have the X, are you gonna hang out with your old friend again or does he live too far away and you weren't such great friends anyway?

ps look around a bit.
From + to x and then holding a + again

Hmm, what if the X had the width of the Plus? Is that the happy medium many are after?

I'm hoping the iPhone X Plus released in 2018 will address being a little bit wider. The iPhone X currently feels somewhat small in my hand more than I thought it would initially. I'm thinking next year's rumored 6.5 OLED model will be the medium that I'm seeking.

Are the rumours OLED or LED for that one?

& is that one going to be the same height as the current Plus?

I think the biggest I could go is the current X height with the current Plus width, although I'm not sure how that form factor will work with common video aspect ratios?

There is a rumored 6.1 LCD iPhone that will also release along side a 5.8/6.5 OLED iPhone. The LCD model is rumored to have Face ID and similarities to the iPhone X now.

The width never bothered me on the iPhone Plus models, although it can be more difficult with one handed use after a while. Which the iPhone X is more comfortable to hold.

I’m finding it really hard to adapt to the keyboard. It’s not small enough for one handed use for me and it’s too small for me to want to use two hands when I’m walking it just confuses me every time I use it.

Have you tried to move it to one side for one handed use?

I still have the 8 Plus. I love the footprint size better because I’m so used to it. But I also find myself using iPhone X gestures when I use the Plus.... like swiping the screen up to get to home. That feels so natural now with the X.

iPhone X Plus please come sooner.

Yes, for me my 7 Plus was just too fat and bulky. Very archaic. I'd look towards an X Plus if it was slightly wider than the X. I am not sure I want a phone that big anymore though, the current X size seems perfect.
After using X every iPhone looks fat and bulky. I really love iPhone X form factor. Looking forward to next year iPhone X Plus.

The Plus is a bit too wide for holding, it is definitely a big compromise for a larger screen size. The forehead and chin are like having half of the screen height. Good in 2014, unacceptable in 2018.

Used my wife's plus last night and the only thing I feel is that the screen is so much bigger... i dont know if its just perception but it feels like the plus phone has so much more screen real estate to work with...... I know its just a little wider but it feels huge compared to the X after using it for a while.

Every time I have to pick up my 6S Plus it feels extremely awkward in my hand now. Needless to say, the LCD screen feels outdated as well.

Yes. But.....I Will NOT be able to resist the X+. I will try, but you know :D. Just means lugging around a brick for another few years. So what.

Apple has a roadmap that runs right through our life savings. (I'm wondering if MR is in collusion with Apple.) :D
