Nope really nothing stood out at all, the specs are nothing special either, i thought apple were touting the X as being revolutionary? horse and bullsh1t and the "notch" looks like it could be bloody annoying to begin with tbh, but i will await the game changing features that any updates will bring

Nothing to see here, nothing new, average specs, ****ing lol mate, you're either brain dead or blind.

If you'd said that about the 8 I might have somewhat agreed, compared to the 7 it's not groundbreaking, way ahead in performance than a lot of laptops but nothing compared to it's previous guise. But you're saying that something Apple say is a step change in mobile computing is nothing outstanding, I can't help but laugh, it reminds me of the iPhone launch... "My Blackberry..."

The same way you release a phone that's more than a little bit prone to spontaneously combusting...

That burn's warmed it up in here a bit.

I'm unboxing now, very nice indeed, lovely colour, has a CE mark on the back which I thought was going, oh well, into it's case tomorrow.

Super impressed with the set up, take a photo of your old device and enter the passcode, done, slick.

Yep agreed the 8 is poo too, rather keep hold of the 7 for work tbh. I didn't say average I said they are nothing special comparing them like for like to current phones. Apple are still behind the competition lets face it. Seriously what does it have that is "a step change for mobile computing"??? oh apple said so, right.

It's an S revision, always have been the best of the generation. If santa brings me an X I'll be chuffed but I buy the top line and my budget was under £1000, I wanted it now, so nope.

I'm already pretty happy as I've come from a 6+, force touch and taptic have only been on my watch till now. I haven't touched AR yet which performs as well as the X I believe and isn't available on the 6. Side by side the displays on my two are worlds apart, the true tone thing is spot on, and yet I'm expecting my old mum to get another 2 or 3 years out of the old one.
