It seems to me the iPhone X has been a major success, however, I'll be honest; I would return my iPhone X for an iPhone 8 Plus right now if I could (without jumping through hoops). I'm an Apple fan, and have used many of their products for many years. For me, this is one of the first Apple products that has presented me with an overall downgraded experience versus the previous product. I am not unhappy with the phone, but if I had the choice I'd switch back. Of course, the iPhone X is excellent, and I love many things about it. My main complaint, however, and the reason why I actually prefer the older design, is FaceID. In my use case scenario I find FaceID far more of an annoyance versus TouchID. When the situation is right, of course, FaceID works beautifully. But I am talking about phone on the desk, laying in bed, not looking at the phone from the exact angle, etc. In my use case scenario anyway, it's simply more inconvenient versus TouchID. If the X had both TouchID and FaceID it would be near perfect. Alas, I will keep my X until the next upgrade cycle. If TouchID doesn't make a re-apperance on the next iPhone, then I'll go with the other design. Just my two cents.
