    I'm still on a 5S from launch and it's been great but the battery has just about had it now. I have been waiting on this launch to see what they can offer me. The X looks good but i don't want to pay that much for a phone, It's also slightly bigger than the current iphone 6/7 range and thats one of the reasons i have not upgraded yet. I keep my phone in my pocket mostly so don't want anything bulky that i will roll on when working under a car for example.
    I have been using my dad's 6 for a few days while on holiday and now my screen seems tiny so i think i'm going to bite the bullet and get an iPhone 8. It's a fair upgrade from my 5s so should be happy with it.

      I believe that Apple were unhappy that people didn't see iPhones as being premium devices any more. The galaxy S8 was actually more expensive. So they had to hit a price point that makes people think it is the best phone in the world again.

      The iPhone SE I thought was the best iPhone for a while. Affordable, decent performance, and quite popular. A lot of people were looking forward to a SE2 earlier in the year, but it never appeared.

      Now, I see this new release and wonder if it's killed the SE.
      Anyone buying the 8 will feel like they have the cheaper iPhone. And the cheaper iPhone is now £50 more than the most expensive iPhone was last year.

      And because Apple have done this, it gives permission for the other manufacturers to go crazy too. I expect to see most new flagship phones to be £700+ and some to be £900+.

      I feel for parents who will now have their beloved brats demanding the iPhone X. Anyone getting the iPhone 8 will be instantly branded a cheapskate.
      Overall, Apple have not been socially responsible, but then should any of us be surprised?

        I'm convinced, I'm selling my S7 and all my possessions so i can afford one. Do they take SD cards yet?

        iphones are just poor Samsung rip offs. They even use Samsung screens.

          Who thought Microsoft Windows numbering was odd?
          7, 8, 10.

          Apparently not Apple.

                  I still think there will be an 9 and possibly a 10. This is an iPhone X not 10. Yes I am aware X is 10 but they are not calling it the 10, it's the X.

                  Bad numbering system? What about the xbox one?

                      The long-awaited and extensively leaked special edition iPhone is finally upon us, and it’s called the iPhone X (pronounced “iPhone 10”). This new super flagship phone from Apple features an edge-to-edge screen with a notch at the top to accommodate the front-facing camera and new Face ID sensors.

                        Hmm, So they are calling it the 10 (i was going off the "leaked" articles a couple of days before the launch event)

                            Gotta say... I want one. I'm bored of Bloatsung and quite frankly, I fancy a change from Android.

                              i dont like using the new phones with screens all the way to the edge.

                              i keep "touching" them whilst holding it and it breaks what ever i am doing all the time :/
