Where do I begin? I upgraded to the 8 plus on launch day and was pleased with it. However, I quickly got bored. I have iPads, MacBooks, you name it. This is an Apple house. I was worried about giving up my home button and worried about the new technology, Face ID and how well it would work. I ultimately decided to pre-order the X with my wife's pre-rder so I pre-ordered right when they went on pre-order at 2am central. Fast forward to today. I have small hands. I find that my Plus fumbles around in my hands anytime I try to do anything one-handed. I opened up my X today and I thought "Wow, this is a small phone" and immediately started to worry yet again. Then I started to use the device. You mean Face ID wasn't cumbersome and slow like I had worried? It was basically instantaneous? YES! The more I used it the more impressed I was that this was a first-gen device. Then as time went on I started to reach for my home button less and less. I couldn't believe how much easier this phone was to hold as well as text on and yet still getting some nice screen estate in the process without having to sacrifice battery life or an inferior camera like the 6/7 non plus models. The only thing I am not crazy about yet is closing apps and losing some screen width. All of that to say, you never know for sure how you are going to feel about something until it is in YOUR hands, until you are using it yourself. You can read all of the rumors, speculation, reviews etc, but until you try it out for yourself how you think you will feel about it, is just speculation. I never had any glaring issues with my OG Apple Watch or 6 plus, so I don't know why I ever doubted apple in the first place. The future is here. And I am glad to be a part of it and happy that I decided to take the leap into the unknown.
