    Don't need any extra accessories. the iPhone X bezel less design and OLED screen is like my dream phone come true.

    I had the S8 for 3 months so experienced the OLED beauty but Android was just so awful to use so i sold it and went back to an iPhone.

    What does that have to do with how you're going to charge your iPhone when you get it? o_O

    I plan on taking advantage of both the rapid charging and also the wireless charging and already have both devices coming to me in the mail.

    Thats how i feel about android, it is completely preference to be fair. Android just doesn't do it for me, I don't like its design at all and the way it deals with app storage and file management really bothers me. I like simplicity on a mobile device and iOS really delivers in that regard.

    You don't even have a true file manager on iOS...too bad. App storage is great on android. The iOS UX design has been horrible since the iPhone 6 came. It's no longer simplistic, I'm not sure what you see.

    Anything for charging faster, I just use my iPad charger and that charges my iPhone rather quickly. But I might interested in the AirPad once released.

    So is there a new charger? I've always used the 12W charger to charge faster. Can I use my new MBP charger to charge even faster now or is it another one? I'm confused

    The faster charger they are advertising is the $49 29w USB-c brick + $25 USB-c to lighting cable. This cost about $74

    For the record I use the old 10w iPad brick to charge my phones too and I thought it is a bit faster. Lol

    Oh ok. That's the one that came with my new MBP, and I bought the USB-c to lightening cable as well, so I'm set. Thank you for the info. As far as the wireless charging I'm going to hold back until others provide some feedback as to whether it's worth it or not.

    I am going to wait and see what this fast charging entails and how much faster it is. I wouldn't mind a fast charger. Wireless is ok but I never used them.

    Same here, sold my S8+ last month, took $150 loss on a two month old phone. S8+ hardware is hard to beat, even comparing to the X. But android is a pain to use for first timers. Lack of app improvements and more ad contents are also turn offs for me.
