Also Pre-orders for the X are coming up friday morning. Hopefully I can remember to get online as soon as they go up the snag one. Reports are saying there arent many to go around so I may not be able to get one like usual.
I'm going to attempt to get one at 2am in the ****ing morning. Well 2 for the wifey. White model 64 & 256.

I figure if the ship time is more than 6-8 weeks, I'll just wait until 2018.

That, and the 12 month program gets messed up if you go out too far. It'll be 2019 before you can upgrade again.

If anything, I'll get the 8 and trade it in 12 months for a Nov 2018 upgrade.

Pretty good honestly. Cant say I have any negatives about apple or iOS in general. I still do like Androids "desktop" a bit more, ie where you can drag the apps you want to your main desktop. iOS feels a bit like if Windows would put an icon on the desktop for each and every application installed on your PC. And I miss how google now was integrated nicely in the OS - e.g. if I wasn't home and picked up my phone, it would tell me in the lock screen i have X amounts of minutes until I could be at home and it would show me the route (walking, busses, trains and times for each part etc) when I doubleclick that (so I never had to do anything to get that information).

Other than that both OS's work pretty much the same, and it was very easy to go from (stock) Android to iOS.

Pre-order went smoothly through AT&T after 10-minute wait in the queue. Delivery supposedly on Nov. 3.

This will also be the first time I buy AppleCare for an iPhone though. Apple is straight up robbing people blind. The iPhone X screen repair is $279. I've broken a phone only once and Apple replaced it for free, but that was way back in the 4/4S days. It's too much of a gamble now.

Any other damage....out of warranty will cost $549.

https://support.apple.com/iphone/repair/service/pricing

Greedy.

I'm a bit bitter about the price of the X, as I fear this is what Apple will charge going forward with its success. I expect to see the iPhone 8S and X2 configurations next year, especially if people are skeptical of FaceID.

I've never had OLED, wireless charging, or dual camera with OIS, so the X is a better upgrade experience from my 6S Plus than the 8.

Both google maps and apple maps will do that for you in iOS as well. You just have to set it to do it. I know because after the last few updates they turned themselves on and I had to turn it off because I found that information annoying. I think they both have a widget that will show the same as well.

Nice that youre getting along with iOS... people tend so like either one or the other.

I played the refresh game at 12am(PDT) and managed to get one for Nov 3 Delivery as well from Apple. I went back in after I ordered and at 12:05 all orders had already been pushed to 2-3 weeks. I went with black 256gb cause I had no choice 64gb is too small. I didnt do Apple Care cause I never do apple care. I mainly went with the iPhone X cause I want that sweet OLED action. If it didnt have an OLED I probably would have not upgraded.

Then why buy it? If you don't want them charging $999 for the base phone next year, why buy the $999+ phone this year? Vote with your wallet.

The net cost comes out the same. By the time I sell the 6S Plus, and the trade in value of the X, it's a wash. And since I'm paying monthly, it's no big deal.

Hell, I can probably flip the X's for 2x the price.

Well, not sure how you can be bitter about the price then. I'm not buying the X because the price is absurd.

I'll see if I cant get maps to that in iOS too. Its other small things google now did too, like telling me live scores in sports of my favorite teams, giving the full map of a mall as I enter one, giving me the menu of the restaurant/bar as I sit down in one etc etc.

But yeah I get along with both very well

I thought you were trolling lol ..

I’ve had some serious slowdowns with 11 on my 6S. Stupid issues and hangs that I never had before. Hopefully 11.1 is better.

The shops on that image

My battery life today was pretty bad, upgraded to 11.1 yesterday (I'm a beta tester)... Today it got down to 5% then just shut off, booted it back up saw it say 8%, got halfway through my passcode and it shut off... Essential Phone might be calling me name soon...

Haven’t had a chance to update yet (need WiFi .. stupid that I can’t DL it on LTE since I have unlimited) but really hope it fixes some issues because if not, I’m gonna lose my damn mind.

My 6S went from perfect with zero complaints to pissing me off in the span of one update. Come on!

I wish I had the money to move to an iPhone8 but honestly giving up the headphone jack pisses me off.

I don’t think I’d go back to an Android. It sucks um kinda sucked into the iOS ecosystem. I had enough of Androids **** after going through 3 Note5’s.

The Note 5 was **** though. That's what drove me to iPhone

I'm hopeful the Essential Phone I ordered this morning is worth a damn.

I wish I had the money to move to an iPhone8 but honestly giving up the headphone jack pisses me off.

I don’t think I’d go back to an Android. It sucks um kinda sucked into the iOS ecosystem. I had enough of Androids **** after going through 3 Note5’s.
I have a daily battle in avoiding clicking that "buy" button. I want to upgrade my 6+ so badly, but I swore it would stay until it was a smoldering heap of slag. Just 6 more months and then I'll have had it 3 years or so, or close to it....

I still don't understand the big deal about the headphone jack. Apple includes an adapter to plug into the Lightning port.

Look into the Essential Phone. It's a great design, stock Android, great battery life, 128GB storage (not expandable), and only $499 unlocked.

They just did (and still do) software updates for the camera, which in first reviews was not very good.

I don't have the foggiest idea were Android people go for help or service, but with Apple you get the Apple Store. Something to consider if you decide to switch.

How about plugging my phone into the charger and using my headphones at the same time. I shouldn’t have to have an adapter on hand all the time nor purchase the Y-split adapter to do so. It’s stupid and annoying.

I just installed the update. We’ll see how it goes, really hoping it fixed the issues I was seeing, because the phone is in great condition..

I suppose that's a use case. I can't recall a time were I've ever used my headphones and had to charge at the same time. But then again, I've yet to use a device without a headphone jack.

I have shite battery life on iOS 11. iOS 11.1 made no difference there. My iPhone 6s also started heating up badly when watching YouTube videos through the official iOS YouTube app out of the blue one day when I was on iOS 10.3.3. No update has fixed that yet up till now. Will a full wipe/restore help?

Last night, upgraded to 11.1.

I don't think it did squat for my battery life. 100% at 5pm. It was 60% 3 hours later. I downloaded a bunch of app store updates and my phone got hot.

Watched a few Youtube videos, read some articles. Tweeted. Filtered some photos.

I was 20% by the time the game ended and went to bed.

This is unacceptable.

Yeah, that's where I'm at right now... Hopefully the iPhone X is better for you...

I frequently plug my phone into a set of Bose Companions + a charger while working out in my house. Y adapters are cheap, so it’s not a deal breaker for me, but it would be nice to not have to.

A full wipe/restore didn’t help my 6+. It’s not quite as laggy, but I’ve had to cut my usage way down just to get it through a work day without recharging.
