Iphone X, who's getting one?

I haven't owned an apple product since my 64G ipod color. I've been rocking the samsung line for a long time, my note 5 could use replacing and im looking at the current offerings, and I might give the Iphone a try. Anyone else thinking about picking up the new Iphone? Im in a holding pattern to see what google is going to release, but as of right now im leaning X over Note 8.

yech. $1,000. a bit much, no?

i'm rocking a oneplus 3t, i'm waiting to see what the new pixel looks like, and what the 5t/next oneplus looks like. i really like having some kind of "home button" and capacative (sp?) touch, so i'm not crazy about what else is out right now.

I still have my iphone 6, if that tells you anything. I hold on to phones until they don't work. Such a waste of money to upgrade very year.

i agree upgrading on a yearly basis is just a waste of money for the most part. I only even look at new hardware when there is a significant jump, which the X seems to be. $1000 bucks looks to be the new norm for the high end mobile hardware. It is expensive, but considering how much I use my pocket computer it isn't unreasonable for me. One big factor for me is trying something different. I really like the android ecosystem, but you don't know what you don't know, so I like to change things up. Im really hoping google knocks it outta the park with the new pixel though so I have more compelling reasons to stay with android but tbd.

the oneplus would be on my list but it doesn't have wireless charging, which for me is a necessary feature. If they hadn't introduced it into the Iphone I wouldn't even be considering it.

ah gotcha. i had phones in the past with wireless charging... kind of a nice novelty but eventually stopped using them. with usb-c and quick charge/fast charge/dash charge, fast charging with less heat on the phone battery, i'll take it! but yea everyone's needs are slightly different

I have had to replace / resolder so many charging ports on such a huge array of devices over the years that I will do anything I can do to avoid a physical interface that is subject to fatigue and corrosion over time. Being the "I.T." guy though, I probably have way more exposure to this issue then most.

I don't get it - must be missing something. They say it is another technological breakthrough and then I read the article and it says glass on both sides.

They had to go glass back to facilitate wireless charging.
