This is a somewhat different thread I have an iPhone 6s and was eagerly looking forward to the new iPhone this year. I thought it might be big. Apple first released the 8 series and it is a copy/paste of the 6s without the headphone jack. An all new iPhone they say I would not be able to look in the mirror if I replaced 6s with 6sss, especially that it is still working really nicely (did not move to iOS 11). I had a dedicated budget to get the X, but there is one thing I cannot get over: face id. I will simply not going to let a phone scan my face, period. The only reason why I was thinking about the new iPhone is a better camera and a better screen (finally OLED). Practically speaking, iPhone X would not make a single positive change in my life. It is a super expensive devise with a lot of compromises. So I said fo myself...where I want to go in life is to spend a lot less time stearing at screens and want to be out more and more doing something that is making me love the REAL world around me. I am a passionate photographer (www.dylikowski.com) and decided to use the iPhone X budget to purchase a camera that will be always with me as it is compact - Fujifilm x-100F. I travel a lot around the world, so I think the release of iPhone X helped me to see a bigger problem that was developing inside of me...attraction to the next big thing of the Apple marketing machine. But because the X is full of compromises, it is a lot easier to shift focus to something else entirely, not just another new phone.
