Totally undecided. I indicated in my OP that I'm unsure, the problem is some advantages are in the X and some advantages are in the 8+. And that's part of why I'm so jacked off, I got to make a decision and I don't know which to make. The less width is putting me off the X and the X being the flagship is putting me off the 8+. If the X had the same screen width = to the 8+ I'd be swaying to the X notwithstanding the notch and no touch ID. I'm torn. The screen width is something I don't want to lose. But...I want ghe latest and greatest. So now I'm in a rock and a hard place.
