Looks clunky, feels clunky, bezels are an eyesore, display looks like an old TV, slow like molasses, fake home button, no Notch

All in all, looks and feels awfully outdated

I hardly pick it up now ever since I placed the order x

What about you? Are you still in love? Or are you guys officially done?

I'll miss my iPhone 6 Plus. I've used it for three years, and it actually still works very well. The only real "problem" with it is that I chose to get the 16GB version, which is really 11GB. Got the 256GB this time since I plan on using it for a while. But I do think the X will be the biggest leap in iPhones since Apple started doing Plus variants.

I remember my original iPhone had only 4 GB of space

Ah, the memories

No way! I love my current phone, I gave it a new life with a new battery too! I will always look at it as my first iPhone and best iPhone with TouchID design.

Nope. 7 on 10.3.3 still runs super fast which is my main priority in a phone. Going to be using this at least for another year. Looking forward to a plus sized and more refined X, but for now, this phone is still great.

It’s kinda funny how our perspectives change. I remember when i got the 7 plus and i looked back at my old 6s thinking “ew. Look at that headphone jack. Such legacy hardware”. Even though I didn’t hate the headphone jack, i felt like it being on the old phone made it look dated

Same deal applies here especially. Seeing the home button and gigantic bezels of my 7 plus will be disgusting after i get an X. Whenever that is

Is this a tongue in cheek joke sort of question? You can’t be serious?

The primary reason I ordered the X is because any phone with a button/pad device is now old technology. Sure it works but the new technology is better. Also, the screen resolution jumps to a modern phone.

Is this really what threads are down to now?
Trollers gotto troll.

On the off chance I've got that wrong (fair probability), I do think the traditional iPhone design is dated. Thought that for a while now due to the X design & competition also.

Initially thought the 7 was the most wasteful purchase (for those who upgrade every year), but now thinking the 8 is, as it's going to be outdated within 2 months.

I still like the designs of every iPhone I’ve ever had. Some more than others. My least favorites were the iPhone 3G

Well you better cancel your preorder. Because last time I checked the X still has a power button, a mute switch, and for some CRAZY reason TWO, not one but TWO volume buttons. How on earth will you survive with such outdated technology? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Complete disclosure I preordered 2 iPhone X’s and can’t wait to get them.
