I really like iPhones even though I've had Android smartphones, bar an iPhone 6 which I only had for a year.

However, this iPhone X launch, in my opinion, only served to show how behind the curve Apple are in innovation now. Is there any particularly new feature other than animated emoji? And the amount they're charging... Christ.

I have a year left on my Iphone 7 contract and cant wait to get rid of it and swap camps. Battery life is crap, phone call quality is crap. I bought a Nokia 2010 so much better. Every day I get pissed of there is no headphone socket. I have lost more of those stupid little adaptors than I care to remember. I tried bluetooth but the headphones invariably ran out of power. You cant charge and listen at the same time. I think I can do without moving emojies in my life and the face recognition that doesn't work =meh. I like the look of the Sony's at the mo.

I can't see any reason to change from my iPhone 6s anymore to be honest. Getting rid of the headphone jack is just annoying.

I also use Apple Pay a hell of a lot including for Oyster card travel 3 days a week, if not more, and it uses TouchID for authorisation. The new iPhone X doesn't have TouchID and although I have no idea what their plans are for Apple Pay, I can't see it working as effectively as the finger print scanner.

That isn't to say that the X looks absolutely incredible because it does. But so is the price tag.

Then it's another thing to lug around. I might see if I can find a brand new iPhone 6 if I can't make the switch to android. Still got a year to work it all out.

I love stuff like this. It's not quite as good as "your an idiot" but it is close.

Obviously I knew the contracts for the 8 and 8 Plus wouldn't be cheap but after seeing them today they might just be more than I'm willing to pay...

Contracts for the X start at 72.99 on EE :-/

I did that with my 6S plus on Thursday

Although if you fancy trying to fix it, pretty easy for around 35..

Got an iPhone 8 on my desk from work but am tempted just to put it in my drawer and see if I can exchange it at the Apple Store when the X is released and pay the difference on my card.

Wonder if work would find out if I did that.

i'm not sure what your work is like, but if the phone is a work phone it's not your property to go and change is it? certainly at my place that's the case
