I went 8Plus as my main, replacing the 6s plus. It does feel like an upgrade. I still have a work 6 plus. I can get an iphone X Unlocked from work for around €200 and was all ready for a new form factor. The leaked iphone X images before launch I hoped were fake but turned out completely accurate. The X looks like a toy phone and you have to put up with it. Gestures are an annoying feature. Iphone 8 Plus might not be exciting but its a solid phone. Much better battery Better screen aspect Less likely to have issues being a tried and tested form factor Dont need to grow more arms and fingers to use it iPhone X is a compromise as is the iphone 8 Plus. iPhone X makes you work harder to use it, slower unlock, more potential for issues with OLED. iphone 8 Plus is an out dated design. As you can tell I am not happy with Apple this year aftering having iphones since the very first one.
