I personally don't think an objective case can be made either way
It comes down to subjective criteria, like personal preferences, work flow, etc.
If you are money conscious, the 8 Plus is cheaper
If you want size/heft, the 8 Plus is bigger
If you want Touch ID, the 8 Plus has it
Etc. etc. etc.
But each person has their own opinions about it and you have to decide what is important to you
I agree it’s different for everyone, which is why am curious to know what reasons people have for picking it over the alternative. I’ve got my reasons for picking the phone I have but I’m just curious to know what reasons other people have as well.
Having owned an X for five weeks and formerly owned a 6S Plus, I'd say that if I were making a decision in favor of the 8 Plus it would probably be for the following reasons:
- TouchID is familiar and works well (assuming it actually does for you - it does for me)
- the aspect ratio is better if you watch a lot of videos
- the LCD display won't bother your eyes, if PWM is an issue
- the battery life of the Plus models is invincible (assuming you don't mind carrying something that's the size of a billboard around with you )
As the title states, looking for opinions on why 8+ is a better device than the X.
