So I was really trying to hold out on getting the new phone because I wanted all the bugs figured out and I was worried of the first gen model. I had a bad experience when updating to the 6 so that was my main concern. Anyway my 6 stopped working yesterday randomly, and I figured it was time to upgrade since my gps didn't work and my bluetooth wasn't that great. After playing with the X for a day I am so happy with the upgrade! The camera, the gestures and how vibrant the display is, is absolutely amazing. Everything is lighting fast and my battery life is crazy. I replaced my 6 battery recently and the battery still loses half its life by lunch time, I stream music while I work. With the X my battery was at 90% at lunch time. My only gripe so far is that when I stare at the phone to unlock it, I still have to swipe up, but I knew that going in. Also I would like a kill all apps option, but I'm not holding my breath for that feature. To anybody thinking should they update.. I would say go for it! This phone has a ton of potential and I can't wait to see what the new iOS versions bring to it.
