i got my iPhone X on launch day, so i've been using it for almost 6 months now. honestly i'm getting new phone itch again. can't help myself but checking out the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, P20, Samsung Galaxy S9+ and even the Product Red iPhone 8+ LOL. Apple's fall launch can't come soon enough. how many of you are in the same boat?

6 months is the longest i have kept a iPhone. But the X was expensive here and i am not going to take a big loss to go to any of those POS phones you mentioned, a 8 plus would be only choice but is old hat and a brick. Will likely keep it and get my moneys worth not really interested in a bigger X either.

I'm getting the itch but more for the plus model of what I currently have. Fingers are crossed

I actually still just have buyers remorse lol. I had a perfectly good 6s plus (minus battery which now would be like $35 to replace) and I went all in.

Great phone, but it's the most I've ever spent and didn't even need it. Used
To upgrade yearly. Boy how priorities/perspectives change with two kids and a mortgage. American dream or something like that.

Just a slight itch hoping to see what’s the new lineup this year and play with them at the stores but will be keeping my X till carriers fully deploy 5G maybe next year with Apple support

This is the first time I am actually not getting the new iPhone itch. The iPhone X is the best iPhone I have ever owned. It's the perfect size. The Plus was too big but I liked having the bigger battery. It was hard to text with one hand. I can do that with the X while having stellar battery life and also having a smaller device. Best of both worlds. With all the new iPhone rumors floating around, I'm just not getting that usual urge to want to go out and upgrade. They add a couple new things and improvements to the next 5.8 X... Yeah I'm going to go and spend another $1100 when the 2017 version is just as great.

I would say it’s a little early to get too excited yet about the new iPhone X in 2018. Once parts start leaking, mock up’s and Additional rumors, then hype tends to build.

Being how expensive the iPhone X is, I would also say the majority of consumers who have the iPhone X likely would not upgrade to the latest iPhone X just because of the price point alone. Other heavy tech users are more prone to upgrade, I also think it depends what this 5.8/6.5 rumored iPhone X will offer in the Fall.

Hard to get an itch when you do not know what you are itching for. Getting hard for Apple or any of the phone makers to WOW us anymore. For the first time I might ship a purchase in September. Like the sound of the X+ but me and the X are getting along pretty well!

Now a new iPad 11.5 Pro . . . . .that is another story!

I have an iPhone X and I intend to use it for the next 4-5 years :) The iPhone X is so far the best iPhone I have ever owned. Much better battery life than my iPhone 5. The X do also have all the features I need at the moment, except maybe touch id in addition to face id.

I usually buy a new iPhone every 4-5 year, even if there might be a better iPhone released. There are other things to spend money on that a phone, like for example a new Mac or other computer.

No itch for me... I've generally been using it sans case for awhile now, and it still impresses me every day. My work 6s+ feels like a giant brick now, and while I really like the look of the new red 8s - I can't see buying something that's not X-related and I don't have any desire to change (we'll see how I feel when they announce the next round, but I don't imagine being able to justify a move, let alone really wanting one). I would LOVE a FaceID iPad, however - course the price will likely be stratospheric.

So you don't have a X therefore the OP doesn't really pertain to you. Enjoy your 8 Plus.
Fair to assume anyone who bought a brand new phone from the latest range within the past 6 months can sort of also qualify. Similar idea. Just because the op was a bit closed box does not mean 8 plus owner cannot respond.

If everyone thought like you, nothing would get done.

I’m getting the itch because the camera on the iPhone X is terrible in low light so I will need to replace the device. If they don’t fix the issue with the 2018 X, then I’ll get an iPhone 8 most likely.

I've had my X since launch day, not sure what Apple could release that would make me want to upgrade already. I guess if they launched the same phone, but much cheaper and AT&T decided it was still an "upgrade" but reduced my monthly bill.

My iPhone X is doing well and I still enjoying using it. I have no need for another phone at this time. I plan on keeping this at least 2-3 years before I decide on what I want to do.

I'm a self-professed gadget junkie who suffers from shinyitis, so I'm always looking at new and upcoming tech. In my Android days, I used to go through 2-3 phones a year. Back then, the carriers still had 2 year contracts, and all it took to upgrade was a call to the loyalty department to get upgrade pricing. I'd flip whatever phone I had at the time, usually getting more than what I paid for it.

Fast forward to today. I've been using iPhones since 2014 and got the X on release day. I opted for the 256GB model and, on my wife's insistence, AppleCare+. The total damage was around $1,475 (including NYC taxes), which is a hefty pill to swallow. As such, I will be keeping this phone until the 2019 cycle. I have no interest in switching back to Android; even if I did, my only choice would be a Pixel device, as timely software updates are extremely important to me.

I have had the itch the whole time I've had the X. I only bought the damn thing because I cracked the irreparable sapphire lens on my 7+, and it would have been a very spendy repair. I sure wish I'd done that, as I miss the larger useable screen of the Plus, as well as all those Plus features like increased iOS functionality in Landscape mode (and due to screen shape, more functional Landscape modes in most applications), better keyboard, etc..

New X+ will have a notch. It’s possible the 2019 X iphones will lose the notch, just have to wait and see
