X looks nice but not sure if Face ID and larger screen is worth the $300 increase over the base 8. With that said, its hard to justify getting the 8 knowing the X exists

A Plus version is redundant with this as screen wise its larger than the 8 Plus

So....is it either pay $999 / $1,149 or is it divide by 24 and pay it over 2 years?

Oh right, I didn't realise that. Thanks for that info. Would you say that on the basis of that that there is pretty much no chance that an X Plus will be coming at all (later)? I was thinking I would have to wait and I don't want to as I have a specific deal that allows me to upgrade early (that I paid extra for). If there is no X Plus then I will definitely be getting this.

Chances are slim. Maybe next year's cycle, whatever it's called but I don't see it for the X

I don't care about next year's models as I need to upgrade asap to take advantage of this deal. Thanks for this advice/info on the size of the X vs iPhone 8 plus, has been very helpful!

Looks like Microsoft isn't completely done... Surface Phone running Windows ARM may be happening:

It's still dead if they aren't focused on the average consumer base. Looks like they still are focused on enterprise, and that's nothing to brag about. They don't have the apps, WM10 is so bogged down and slow in comparison to WP7-8.1. It's definitely dead.

Also, talking about Google and their Pixel devices, I'm impressed with what they're doing with the camera tech and AI

Haha, I had the first few iPhones and then Windows phones ever since. But went back to iPhone while keeping my old Windows Phone with iPhone 7, and now trading it in for the X in a couple of weeks. It's a shame WP didn't get anywhere as they were good phones, just struggled to get app coverage anywhere near Apple and Android phones.

Hence the possibility of using Windows for ARM which is the full OS that will probably mimic the Mobile shell.

How does this help the general consumer still? Give Windows all the power and full OS you want, simple fact is as a mobile OS on a mobile device (rumored Surface Phone) it'll stink as a smartphone. Still no apps that people want to use, no focus on photography (hasn't been a focus for Microsoft since they bought out Nokia) yes, it'll be neat to see a Surface Phone come to fruition, but by no means will I or most of the current Windows Phone user base be impressed. It's still a dead OS for the average consumer, if you're a loyalist, sure you'll buy one. But this is still targeting enterprise, which is so safe it's stupid.

If I were Microsoft and wanted to target enterprise, using the full OS, OneCore on a smartphone I'd go all out. Edge to edge display, 6.3" display (similar to Note 8) include all of your multitasking features from full Windows 10, introduce a new stylus compatible with the phone as well as the existing line of Surface machines, etc. Plus unlocking your phone/security is going the route of facial recognition , something Microsoft adopted early on so enhance that feature even more.

We'll see what happens but I do not have high hopes for any mobile device from Microsoft. They should just stick to their laptops and tablets (great devices)

I decided to preorder the iPhone X yesterday but it wont ship till Dec 16! I did a 2 year contract with Sprint which brought it to $640. I figure I could sell my 6s for about $300 to offset the cost

For the space grey I'd have had to wait about 4 weeks so I went for silver which should be available this Friday. I'll put a case on it anyway so I'm not too bothered about the colour and I'd rather have it sooner on this annual upgrade programme or my upgrade will be delayed permanently by 4 weeks every year.

This is the first time that I couldn't get a discounted rate for upgrading my phone with a new contract. So if I want the X it's either $48/month or $1150 and right now I can't rationalize paying more for an iphone than for an ipad.
