Just my suggestion, but you could try the iPhone 8 and take advantage of the 14 day return policy to see if you like it or not. And if you don't, then you can return it and return back to your previous iPhone, and wait for the iPhone X whenever you're available to pre-order it. I think it would at least help determine if you would appreciate the upgrade from your iPhone 6 to the iPhone 8, because you are already aware of the current form factor. Its a matter of the functionalities on board with the iPhone 8.I’m literally flip-flopping every day!
Today I’m leaning towards the 8 Plus. Internally it’s the same phone. Aside from animojis and a few camera enhancements that mean nothing to someone like me who just takes pictures for Facebook, the X does nothing that the 8 Plus doesn’t also do, and I’m really not sold on giving up a home button and TouchID for swipe gestures and FaceID.
The only thing that keeps me coming back to wanting the X is the more portable formfactor. Even the OLED display doesn’t matter that much to me, because I’ve never had one. Can’t miss what I’ve never had.
Why pay hundreds of dollars more for something I’m not sure about with features I’m not sure I need or want?
However, ask me tomorrow and I will have the exact opposite opinion. I’ve seriously changed my mind about a dozen times since the keynote!
Too tall for easy one-hand use, but not wide enough to excel as an iPad-replacement phablet for watching movies, making it a form factor that is ideal for neither.The X is iPhone’s 10.5 iPad. The in between size thats supposed to give the majority of users what they want in a form factor.
Eh...my 6s Plus hasn't been so fine on iOS 11.es, my iPhone 6s Plus is still running fine on iOS 10. Don't plan on updating to 11, but I'm sure it would run that fine as well.
