Is the iPhone X worth the upgrade from a 6s? Can anyone who’s already got theirs shed some light?
iPX vs. 6S gets you:

OIS video vs. n/A
A11 (better power efficiency, ML engine) vs. A9 SOC

BT 5.0 vs. 4.2
HEVC/HEIF (new video/photo formats) vs. n/a
5.65" x 2.79" vs. 5.44" x 2.64"
That's _all_ objective, there are more. Now weather you value those technical specifications differences is up to you I think it's a MASSIVE upgrade over a 6S and in a physical package that's not much larger.
What about the camera?
It depends if you’re going to like the navigation of the X then yes. For me I didn’t like the navigation so I returned the X and got an 8. You can test drive the X for 14 days.
I'm one who has both a 6S and a 6S+. I decided that the X wasn't worth the price and bought a 256GB 7+ and with the savings, bought a pair if AirPods. For the time being, I'm still using my 6S+ with my Apple watches but that's because my 7+ came with 10.2.1 and I'm not sure if I want to update it to 11.
I got a new battery put in my 6S+ last week, the same day that I ordered the 7+. Had I thought things through after getting the battery replaced on the 6S+, I may have not ordered the 7+ because I am still 100% happy using my 6S+ with the new battery.
Not sure what I'll do next year but for now, I'm good.
