    For all those so disgusted at the price and refuse to get one and tell others of the thousand reasons why they shouldn't get one too.

    Thank you, cause now I feel more confident that I will be able to get one on release day when I pre-order with my contracted network for an upgrade.

    With so few bezel and an OLED screen sorry but this iPhone is the stuff of dreams.

    Some say no Touch ID no buy.... Well I was using iPhones long before Touch ID (My fav being the iPhone 4/4S) and will continue to use em long after Touch ID is gone.

    So again thank you.. I hope you stay true to your words and stay away from the launch.

    .....Somehow I feel people are lying and the iPhone X gonna be sold out it in seconds :mad:

    Edit: And personally I prefer the Notch over the top and bottom bezel that the S8 has. But thats me :)

    Yeah, it'll be sold out within minutes more than likely. But don't worry, I won't be competing with you to get one ;)

    People aren’t lying because Apple hasent even started production yet and won’t until mid October now. It will be very hard to snag one on day 1.

    I mean lying as in they don't plan on getting one, I thought that was obvious? The phone is not yet available for pre-order...

    Well why would they lie about that? I know plenty who refuse to pay over a grand, or the notch. But for whatever reason I feel like they aren’t lying.

    You're forgetting about the millions of people who don't hang out on forums and obsess about every detail of the X (real or imagined) and will order anyway.

    Even the Pontiac Aztec had customers buying it.

    And the Toyta Prius has loyal customers.

    Go get your 'X' man, you can have the one I won't be buying! :D

    Thanks, hopefully you stick to your word.

    I still have a feeling that you won't....

    I won't be competing with you for it... my 8 Plus arrives today.

    Maybe we can get together for drinks around St. Patricks Day when you get your X and you can let me know how you like it...

    These sorta threads are kinda silly. There's no cause to thank the non-buyers.

    And if you believe that many people that will be preordering the ipX are getting this for themselves and not buying one in hopes of selling it for profit...keep your eyes closed then.

    I bet there are some Android lovers buying the ipX just to see if they can turn a profit. After all, the 14 day return window practically guarantees no money lost.

    But plenty to be gained.

    Why don't you post on an Android forum thanking them too?! :D Might as well.

    People aren't lying. I believe that most of the people who say that they aren't interested in getting one really aren't. Some will change their minds, no doubt, but some who intend to get it may change their minds too. But the biggest mistake you can make is assuming that the handful of people on this forum or in Youtube comment sections give any indication of the actions of the tens of millions of potential costumers out there.

    I find it VERY unlikely that this "report" from earlier this week is true. As I've explained in greater detail in another thread. Apple would not have promised to have this product in people's hands and store shelves in just a matter of weeks if they hadn't started mass production already. Just before this "report" came out everyone was going nuts over the "report" that they were only producing 10 thousand units a day. Nobody knows how many they're producing right now, but trust me, they're not beginning production 2 weeks before launch.

    I’m amused at how polarized the Apple community is over the X.

    I’ve got no complaints about the design, functionality, etc. I simply can’t afford it. Haha. The 6 I use now has everything I need, it’s just getting slow. 8 it is.

    Unfortunately, all the whiners here that are never happy are just a small percentage of customers overall (and let's not forget how many complain all month but then run out and buy on day 1 still). I fully expect them to sell out of the lower storage size within minutes, and the upper storage size within hours at best. Honestly if shipping times haven't slipped for all within the first hour I'd be surprised.

    People will be buying regardless even if it’s just to re-sell and double their profit. It’s gonna be ugly.

    If the demand was 100 units. Apple would only have one ready for launch.

    I can afford one. I can afford 10.

    The reason why they're so polarising?

    Well... they're not cool.

    They're no longer au currant, no longer a la mode.

    Phones are no longer in vogue. Not just the iPhone X, no phone in general.

    It was a trend, it's now gone.

    Nobody I know cares about owning the latest iPhone anymore, most people I see these days in the circles (That's older than 20) still use 5S's or SE's. The move to a bigger handset was when the fashion aspect died off, there's a reason why the SE sells so well.

    It's no longer cool to care about which phone you own.

    Not sure why anyone would care about this? Hipsters maybe?

    I get what I like and the features that I like. I've never bought anything cause it was simply popular and everyone had it.

    I research all tech before purchasing and if i don't like it, it gets sold or returned like the Google Pixel did.

    "Simply popular and everyone has it" is 100% the reason behind the iPhones success. Just because you think you're above all that doesn't change it.

    Agree with above, you buy a phone base on your needs, not to "flaunt" it...
    If you can take advantage of 4k 60fps video recording as an example that other phones dont have [and have the processing power on your mac/pc to do so] by all means it's for you. just an example i put out of one feature these new releases have that others lacked.

    others might be buying it because of the redesign thats fine. no need to gimp on their parade.
    to be honest you buy what you want best, no need to dictate others opinion.... one way or another

    now i think iPhone and android software wise and hardware wise is getting relatively closer, before there used to be this gap between premium and dinky, now the gaps have closed in smaller between both companies.

    obviously iPhone is smoother in terms of software, but by how much remains.

    Good luck. The only people talking are the ones who DON'T like it. For everyone who makes a thread on here, there's another 10 people who will be trying to buy them on pre-order day.

    I too will not be competing with you. A permaturd notch on top on this design is a huge turn off. 8 plus will be here on Tuesday for me.
