I’ve been reading/listening to various sources on the iPhone 8 and X and am pretty comfortable with my decision to go with the 8 Plus over the X. The same power (which is most of what I will use) a camera which is almost as good (which is still a huge step forward for me) and I get to keep Touch ID (which I like). Time may turn me into (more of) a grumpy old man, but I’m happy with the design. I don’t really want thinner/lighter, hell thicker with more battery would be nice! (Having a Plus size phone it’s never going to be small anyway). There really is little difference between the two for the average consumer.
From what I understand the X screen is the same width as a non plus unit, but taller. While I’m sure I wouldn’t be unhappy with the X, I sort of know and love the Plus form factor and how it all works (I have just been hanging out for more performance).
In my special fantasy world, I wonder a little bit; if someone offered you a free phone of your choosing, so price is no longer a consideration. What do you pick?
While the draw of the new shiny is very strong (I’m still questioning myself a little), I think I’d still go with the 8 Plus.
