From the day of the keynote, I have not been a fan of the X. I just got back from the Apple store and I am still not a fan. To those who say the notch doesn't bother them or that the notch is not noticable, well, it may not bother you, but it is noticable. And it bothered me. I noticed it. I played with it for nearly an hour and I could not stop noticing it. Maybe I was too concious of it, but it bothered me the entire time. The phone itself is very buttery smooth, it feels good to hold in the hand, and the gestures which replace the home button work pretty good, though bringing up the app switcher is a bit slower than double pressing the home button. Obviously I could not test Face ID as it was a display unit. I was hoping there would be something which would sway me, but there wasn't. Ultimately as a Plus user going to the X would be a downsize for me. I liken it to moving from a 4 bedroom house to a 3 bedroom house. Quite simply, the Plus screen has more relevant real estate than the X. Nice phone, screen didn't wow me as much as I thought because I had already spent time playing with the Note 8 which has a superior screen IMO, but the usable screen size which is affected by the narrower width and the notch are total deal breakers for me. But to those who got an X and are loving it, happy for you, and I hope to be in your shoes this time next year.
