    What makes the X lighter than the 8 Plus? I looked through the specs, but don't see anything special that the 8 Plus has that the X doesn't to make it so much heavier especially since the X is larger.

    X - 6.14 ounces (174 grams)
    8 Plus - 7.13 ounces (202 grams)

    No, the Plus is much larger than the X, so yea, pretty straight forward explanation.

    Yeah how come is a smaller phone with a smaller and thinner display that doesn't even need a backlight lighter?

    That's weird.

    Lets have a look at this image... 8plus is the biggest, so it's the heaviest. X is in the middle, so it's the "middle weight", iphone 8 (non-plus) is the smaller one, so is it's also the lighter...

    pretty straight forward

    Yea I think it will be 6.4 (rumored) and about the size of the current plus. Will definitely be enticing. I may even be able to ditch my iPad Pro and go iPhone only (the dream scenario).

    Even despite the size difference.

    I'd have expected the weight/density of the X with it's steel structure to catch up or surpass the weight of the aluminum 8Plus. *shrug*. Just mildly interesting.
