    Title says it all. Don't even need discussion. Did you order an 8 or are you waiting to order an X.

    8 or 8+.

    Waiting for iPhone X.
    No point in getting iPhone 8 Plus the difference is minimal between my iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus. iPhone 10 is the real deal for me. [​IMG]OLED with edge to edge display is main selling point for me. Of course i am curious to test Face-ID. [​IMG]

    I think the reviews are going to be highly debatable on this one.

    This phone is really going to require walking into a store and fondling it first hand to ensure the questionable UI and UX elements fit your personal usage and the notch doesn’t hinder anything about how you personally interact with iPhones.

    Yep.

    The more info/footage I hunt down, the more I feel comfortable with the X, but I need reviews which point out negatives - it's the bad points, & their impact on my personal use, I look for before purchasing.

    8+, just can't decide 64, or 256, or Space Gray or Silver.

    Also starting to like the X more. I realized that i rarely ever use the phone in landscape mode and the Plus was never an option for me, because it's too big... and the dual camera will be an added bonus for me, over the normal 7 i have now.

    but for me it was never 8 or X, since i already have the 7. more like "this year or next year". and i'm still not fully decided.

    I'm waiting for the iPhone X, that OLED display with HDR and so on is just to tempting to miss.

    Pretty much my feeling as well, although I am coming from a Plus (the size was never an issue). I don't use it in landscape mode.

    I usually seek out bad reviews of smartphones as well. I generally find them more informative for several reasons.

    8+ 256. X looks intriguing, might go for it next year, but for now I'm sticking with the phablet size I've come to know and love.

    8+, I view too many photographs on my phone to have them squished into the smaller in width X's screen size.

    X but mainly because I’m over the 6/S/7/8 design. If Apple was going to use the same design for 4 years, it should have been based off the iPhone 5/S series.

    I will get an X, but next year's model. You guys are going to spend 6 months+ doing an extended beta test of iOS and all the 3rd party apps that need redesigned :D

    If this poll is representative.... and it is a big IF... then Apple have a massive problem because according to reports the X cannot be produced to meet the demand. So they will have lots of frustrated X buyers and lower than normal sales on the 8.

    Of course it's not representative! Not only is it a ridiculously small sample size given that iPhones sell in the tens of millions, but we are not a representative sample of the consumer base. This is a forum for Apple enthusiasts and tech enthusiasts in general. People here are MUCH more likely to go for the more premium device than the average joe on the street who doesn't even know what an OLED screen is.

    The only reason to produce an 8 in the shape of a 6 is because the factories already exist.

    As a Note 8 user, I would go with the 8+ only because I have been used to the Note series and the iPhone + series. The X is a nice gimmick right now imo. At least until there is real world experiences on face id and no home button.

    Went for the 8+. Totally understand it's a meh upgrade for 7/7+ owners, but for me, coming from a late 2014 iPhone 6, it will be a huge one.

    Wasn't totally convinced by the design of the X, and for that price, I have to be totally convinced. Let's see in one year or two what they do with it.

    The longer aspect ratio can be fatiguing in landscape because content will sometimes have a window blind effect.

    This is why the X Plus will be more appealing.
