    Not enough space to display a battery %!!

    All this screen and you can't even view the battery %. If you want it, you'll have to swipe into notification centre

    That's not a deal breaker, but I'm glad you warned me!

    It has 2 hours extra battery life, you won't even need to see how much battery is left :D

    Where will you be able to see if WiFi calling is enabled? :confused:

    No place for that now on the status bar with iPhone X.

    Well, I've had this (upper right) since February 2013 and been pretty happy with it.

    But you need a jailbreak to get it.

    That's a nice one. I liked that on my Android mods. Can't be bothered now to be honest.

    ugh.. another annoyance... adding to no touchid, no reachability, no control center access with one 1 hand/thumb... i wanted to like this phone but im find more things that im used to use with the 7, that won't be there anymore. battery % is very important to me as I prefer it over the generic battery level icon.

    Doesn’t battery percentage burn a bit more battery since it checks status more often than the battery level bar?

    $1000 and you can't even view battery percentage. So are they saving that for the Xs?

    I love having the percentage on. It's going to take some getting used to without it.

    At least it would be better if we could have the option to show the % instead of the bar. It's very useful to know precisely, if you get below 10%. I would like seconds on the time as well, but I know that's not going to happen.

    False.
    The iPhone 8 has 2 hours more battery life over the 7.
    The iPhone X has about an hour less battery life than the 8, and even the 7 Plus.

    It would have been nice if they embedded the battery percentage into the battery icon. And I did use the battery percentage. But It won't prevent me from ordering iPhone X.

    iPhone 8: “Lasts about the same as iPhone 7”
    iPhone X: “Lasts up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7”
    If you look at the numbers, they’re very similar between the X and 8+.

    iPhone 7 != iPhone 7 Plus
    The battery on the iPhone X WILL NOT last as long as the battery on the iPhone 8 Plus.

    Let's go step by step here:

    You say: The iPhone 8 has 2 hours more battery life over the 7.
    Apple's page you linked to says: Lasts about the same as iPhone 7

    You say: The iPhone X has about an hour less battery life than the 8, and even the 7 Plus.
    Apple's page: Lasts up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7

    So if the 8 has the same battery life as the 7, and the X has 2 hours more than the 7, then the X has 2 hours more than the 8.

    You do have a point that the Plus models have more battery life than the non-plus models, and may have as much or more than the X, but none of that is reflected in what you linked to.
