So, now the iPhone X is in totally unchartered territories for an iPhone - new form factor, new OLED screen, Face ID, no home button nor Touch ID. Unproven battery life. Wireless charging, etc etc.
Without Touch ID, many of my existing apps may not work, especially the banking ones. There will be immediate impact on existing apps.
Will I take the leap?
I would, if it's $3000. I might even bite at $3999. But at almost $5000, it is a hard bullet to swallow. I don't want to be carrying an equivalent of a new state of the art custom built PC with GTX 1060 graphic card! There is always a risk of losing the phone, dropping it (and thus cracking the all glass of enclosure). Is it water proof this time? I'm not even so sure of that.
I've never lose a phone in the 10 years of owning iPhones so I'm pretty careful but even then, I'm wary of holding a $5K device.
Cool tech, super beautiful phone, but the price just ain't right. Sighhhhhhh....
