Has anyone got it? Is it worth the money?

HarryDresdensLeatherDuster Thu 22-Feb-18 20:29:47

I love mine but it definitely depends on what you pay for it!! I got mine on a contract which is expensive but I was upgrading all of the family phones at the tome and saved a fortune on the others (8+) so my monthly spend has not gone up.

I wouldn't buy one outright though!

It's a good oh me, screen quality is excellent but it depends what you want from a phone and whether the cost is worth it to you.

I spent a few years working in telecoms. I went in as an iPhone addict and came out as someone who wouldn't have one. I still have friends who work in phone shops and I don't know anyone in a phone shop who has an iPhone.

The question I'd ask you is are you the sort of person who wants to pay over the odds for features that were released to android users a couple of years ago but you can tell people you have an iPhone X? If so, get one.

I honestly thought going from an iPhone 7 to an X would be a bit 'meh' in the way that a 6 to a 7 was very samey, but I actually LOVE the X and would recommend it to anyone!

AgnesBrownsCat Thu 22-Feb-18 20:42:49

I think it’s a ridiculous amount of money for a phone . Wouldn’t you rather be paying less overall a month Harry ? Is it really worth it?

italiancortado Thu 22-Feb-18 20:43:38

Oh and I but iPhones because I like them, not so I can tell people I have an iPhone confused surely that mentality stops when you leave school

For me it came down to the home button and battery life, I decided I needed more life and a home button and went for the 8 Plus instead and I’m very happy. How do you feel about home buttons and battery life?

newnameforwednesday Thu 22-Feb-18 20:47:18

I got used to having no home button very quickly, and my battery life is better than my old 7+. The camera is excellent, especially the selfie portrait mode.

I'm typing on one right now and yeah it's good, but not worth the €500+ i paid for it. I am a big Apple fan and I got it on a whim, but now not sure. Even the apple CEO has only got an iPhone 8!

Facial ID is cool but useless if your phone is sat on the table and you still get asked to type in your password. At least the 6s recognised my fingerprint, it was much faster!

CremeBrulee Thu 22-Feb-18 20:51:30

Yep I was worried bout lack of home button but I'm totally used to it now and I s only had mine a couple of weeks. Battery life is so much better than my old 6+, camera is excellent too.

Yes, obviously, thelcon,that’s what I want hmm

I’m due an upgrade. Have had iPhones since 2007. Have tried android but don’t get on with it. Plus music, videos etc.

Writersblock2 Thu 22-Feb-18 20:52:49

Love it! Tried Android and couldn’t stand it. Screen on the X is amazing!

TheIcon Thu 22-Feb-18 20:52:53

Sadly it doesn't stop at school. I'm going back four or five years, but people would ring their friends to tell them they had an iPhone. That's also why the cases have a cut out to show the Apple logo.

Each to their own, but I don't get why they're so popular when there's nothing innovative about them at all. But I'm technogeek and I like the newest, techiest stuff so feel free to ignore me.

Eifla Thu 22-Feb-18 20:55:42

I have one as my work phone. There’s nothing I do on it that I didn’t do on my old iPhone 6, although the camera is very good. I’d never have it if I was paying the contract!

JenniferYellowHat1980 Thu 22-Feb-18 20:57:26

Any recommendations TheIcon?

Justgivemesomepeace Thu 22-Feb-18 20:58:11

Absolutely not worth the money. Stupidly overpriced with no special features that aren't on other phones for less money. If your adamant you want an iPhone go with a 7 or 8.

overskyandshire Thu 22-Feb-18 20:58:51

Well, I’m not a techno geek grin but I find the iPhone very fast and easy to use compared to an android I used once when my phone was being fixed.

So that is what I’m asking I suppose: what does the X have that makes it special? Otherwise I will upgrade to an 8.

Justgivemesomepeace Thu 22-Feb-18 21:01:21

The screen on the x is a Samsung amoled screen. You dont have to to pay that kind of money for that screen. I'm with Thelcon. I work in the indusrty and none of us would get an iPhone x. If I was getting a new phone I would look at the OnePlus5T.

Justgivemesomepeace Thu 22-Feb-18 21:04:06

Only thing on the x really is the edge to edge screen and no hard home button. Unless you're interested in technical camera differences that make no difference and I can't remember because they are so irrelevant, and the moving emoji's on texts. Go for an 8.

Toddlerteaplease Thu 22-Feb-18 21:04:38

I'm picking up my 8+ tomorrow. I don't like the look of the X and don't want to pay £200 extra for the facial recognition. The prices have got ridiculous.

overskyandshire Thu 22-Feb-18 21:06:57

Thanks, I’ll go for the 8 smile Quite pleased this is the answer coz it’s cheaper grin

uncoolnn Thu 22-Feb-18 21:08:20

I have the iPhone 8. Didn't upgrade to the X as there weren't enough extra features to make up for the huge leap in price. I love my iPhone, have had androids in the past and just don't get on with them, I do not have an iPhone just to tell people I've got an iPhone hmm

Nishky Thu 22-Feb-18 21:09:55

Another one who tried Android and hated it. Can those who work in the industry explain why Android was so bloody complicated

overskyandshire Thu 22-Feb-18 21:10:01

That post really annoyed me too.
