Since I have had a little bit of time with the iPhone X, I would like to express my personal thoughts on how the new iPhone X has affected my daily life and the features that stick out the most to me. First of all, I want to say that I feel very strongly that this is the iPhone that people have wanted for several years. It’s a true next-generation device and the future direction of the device. It’s a full-screen, no-home button phone that feels perfect in your hands. Usually, the ‘in awe’ effect of a new device starts to wear off on me within the first 24 hours. After 48, I’m happy to say that I still reach for the iPhone with childlike wonder and glee as I swipe away on the screen. The overall design of the iPhone is stunning and even though it’s glass on the front and back, it doesn’t feel fragile to me. It’s a solid, stylish mobile phone with extremely advanced features.


All in all, it’s a wonderful, but expensive upgrade. In addition to the retail price, Apple Care is $199 for the iPhone X. Would I suggest you go out and upgrade right now? It really depends on your particular needs. I would not spend the money to upgrade my daughter’s phone just so she can text her friends and play games. For me, I live on my iPhone and the upgrade was almost a must. Apple dropped two other phones — the 8 and 8 Plus — that share a lot of the iPhone X features so if you are on the fence about the money either one of them would be a wonderful option. If you have the extra cash, you won’t be disappointed with the X.
