Gotta say, the X does look good, and more availability worldwide is great, but it looks too much like a high end Android Smartphone to me. If I’m in the market for an iPhone, and intend to use it as my daily driver, I’d go for the 8 Plus. It’s a dated design, but it looks like an iPhone, which is what I prefer it to look like.

Understood bro. I’ve always liked the 6 series design, it’s tried and true. The X has a cool look too, but man could it have used an FPS.

Right!! I'm a fan of the 6 series design as well, and the FPS would be sorely missed by me if I went the X route.

I’m actually going to return my X today, and buy a 6S Plus later on Craigslist. It’s just not good enough to justify the high price. Way too limited and lacks far too many features I’ve come to depend on.

totally agree with that assessment, darrk. There are too many features that I've grown used to using non-iOS devices which prevent me from using an iPhone as my daily driver, let alone one with the price tag of the X.

Right on, and no iPhone X hate. It's just not what I choose to carry as my daily driver, great device, but it's gotta go back. I bought the gear IconX ear buds, and I'm hooked. Far better and useful, than the airpods. I'm headed to Apple now.
