I didn't think I'd like the 8+ all that much, but it's an excellent iPhone: really fast, responsive apps, incredible camera, great screen. In regards to the screen, I'm fanatical about small bezels but absolutely hate the notch on the X. In addition, while I initially pooh-poohed the wireless charging, I love it now. It's really convenient with an $ 18 charger from off of Amazon. And I really like Touch ID, probably one of the main reasons I didn't get the X. For its design generation, it's probably the epitome.
