I wanted to like the X - I’ve had everyone iPhone since the original. Last month, I signed up for T-Mobile Jump on Demand and got a Note 8 to hold me over until the X came out (you can jump every 30 days with JOD). There were so many great things about that phone that I now miss; and am likely going to go back to it. A few include: -a feature where if you are connected to certain Bluetooth devices, or a specific location, you can bypass having to have your phone “locked”. Just swipe up and your in. This was great while in the car or at home where I really don’t need to have a locked phone. The rest of the time, Samsung’s face unlock feature was as fast as apples is, without the extra swipe up needed. -the screen. I was most excited to see an iPhone with an Oled, but compared to the Note 8 it isn’t even in the same league. The Note 8 screen “pops” while the other than black levels, the X screen is on par with older iPhones. -screen size. While the mobility of the X is nice, it’s amazing how much smaller watching video on the X is compared to the Note 8, even the 7 plus. This is my biggest issue. -multitasking. Having such a big screen on the Note 8 really does allow for good multitasking. I miss having a YouTube video playing in one window while browsing in another. -google home. We have several devices in our home and it was nice streaming whole home audio from YouTube or whatever app throughout the house. Apples solution to this with the HomePod would just be too expensive to have throughout my home. -actual fast charging and fast wireless charging - not only this but it was great being able to see how long until my phone was fully charged. -while iOS is still cleaner and easier to use, Android has come a long way- this should be a non issue for most other than not being able to use iMessage. There are many issues but those are the ones that stand out for me. I post this to provide info for anyone on the fence between the two phones.
