    I'd be surprised if you could get the iPhone X for less than retail anytime soon. Maybe next year when the iPhone X S comes out or whatever they're going to call it. I paid $1150 for mine and got lucky and got one in a reasonable amount of time. I had to wait until January of this year to get the 7Plus since they were nowhere to be found. I got lucky on mine and got one of the last ones available for order on AT&T and got it within a week. Had to go through a little shit when I tried to order it but it's paid for and my bill didn't change. Apple says 6-8 weeks before shipment right now but it might be sooner? "To me" it's worth every penny. It is leaps and bounds above any smartphone out there. I understand that there's a market for the 8 and 8Plus but there is a reason you can get one right now... It's not the best phone out there. Everyone (that truly wants the best iPhone) is going to buy the X. Worth it to "me". Not worth it to others and I understand. But goddamn it's amazing once you get your hands on one.

    Yeah I just went through the sale papers. Nothing really catching my eye. Asked my wife if she wanted one of the robot vacuum cleaners and she said no. Thought about a Nintendo switch for my son but he doesn't even play the Wii U he got last year anymore. I have more sewing stuff than most women do so that's out too. lol

    New headset for the xbox wouldn't be bad but I'm not driving 20 minutes to town for a headset.

    Yeah, there's a reason 2 different versions came out at once. I'm skipping the 8 and buying me and my wife both an X. Would have liked them before we go on vacation in a few weeks but it doesn't look like it will happen. Oh well, good things come to those who wait. You would think that Apple would have this shit down by now and put the volume of them out to meet demand.

    I think that is one of the the things that Apple does. Supply never meets demand.

    1: I think it builds hype for something you can't get.

    2: The technology in this phone is not easy to produce. The OLED screen (from what I've read) is a hold up as they can't get enough of them. Once the hype dies down a little they'll be like the 7Plus and you'll be able to just walk in and buy one. But that won't be for a few more months I imagine.

    I agree, limited supply keeps the hype up and I’m pretty sure it’s by design by Apple. That’s how they keep people lining up for new iPhone releases.

    Agreed. I tried to buy one on launch day and they were sold out within a 20 mins. Then the wait time was 4-6 weeks.

    I skipped the 7 because it wasn't really all that better than my 6 plus. I'm well overdue for a new one. I just want a new phone but I'm not going to settle for less when they have something better out at the same time for as long as I keep them.

    Last time I bought or pre ordered an iPhone was with the 4S or something like that (2010 timeframe). I just wait it out and get it a few months after release. I’ve got the 7+ back in Feb and it works just fine so I think I’m good for a little bit. I gotta get stuff for the kiddo for Christmas and after that I’ll take a look at it again but $1150 for a phone or...an ARB Fridge?

    I’m still waiting on transfer orders and if I end up back west again I see a lot more camping trips in my future and the fridge would work out well for those weekend wheeling/camping trips

    I bought the 256GB instead of the 64GB. For $150 it didn't make much sense to me to buy the smaller version when I could have 3X's the storage for a little more money. Hell... I'll probably never even use 64GB but if I do I know I've got much more left. So it was worth the $150 more.

    My thinking also. Also wondering with the X if 64GB is more like the 32GB in the 8's.

    I would do the same. I have the 128gb 7+ and I’m at 80gb right now. I have all my music on my phone and use that in the 4Runner whenever I’m driving. I never listen to actual radio or XM/Sirius.

    I imagine it is since most apps that run natively on the X take up more space than a normal app. Once you get one, try out the AR Kit. It's fucking unreal. Download Night Sky. It uses the cameras on your phone and AR to show you where everything is at in the night sky at any given moment. Even below the horizon.

    Yeah, the 256 would do you well. I've got the 128 on my 7Plus that I gave to my daughter and she'll probably use all of it lol.

    @RearViewMirror what is this AR Kit? Is it an apple app? I searched for it and found the developer version.

    I know what’s aware is (augmented reality) but is it an apple app included on the 8 and X’s only? I didn’t find it in the App Store

    It appears the AR kit is included with IOS 11 and is the thing that does the artificial stuff like changing people into emoji's etc. It's available for any iPhone after the 6s.

    Can make a game look like it's floating in your living room in front of you. I guess it uses the image from the camera, GPS and movement from you to determine where you are on earth to determine how to show you the image of the sky you are looking at as to where the stars and planets are in that image.
