My friends are heavily divided between the 8 and the X (way of the world nowadays isnt it?) and those that have the first release of ‘17MY iPhones are doing a bit of rubbing in the face... I’m of course holding out for the 2017.5 model but I will admit after handling one in the store it is a very nice , distinct design. Sort of a rounded evolved iPhone 4, better than the 7 IMO. That $300-400 I’d save would go easily into a series 3 ... I have no doubt Face ID will rock but at this point the screen is the only selling point for me ... anyone reconsidering now that the 8 is out in the wild?
