after using the iPhone X for over 2 months, I stopped convincing myself that it is a better and convenient phone than the 8+ with the same old design. Reasons for switching back: 1. That notch. God, it’s reeeeeeeally bothering the **** out of me. Apple needs to get rid of that. 2. The screen (though taller) is too narrow for media consumption. I’ve always found myself using the 8+ when watching YouTube videos. 3. Touch ID is better, faster and more convenient than Face ID. 4. Finally, the 8+ has longer battery life and doesn’t have the battery bug of the X (same battery usage and battery standby).
