i just did the apple leather case but considered not putting one on.  the x is thicker and easier to handle than the 7+ was

I still don’t have a case for my 8 and probably won’t get one

Iphone 6, home button hasn't worked for 2 years and the charging station has been iffy lately. Anyways, it's stuck on the apple logo. Am I screwed? Head to Verizon tomorrow? Will it eventually power off?

I am very anxious to get your opinion on it.  I have been living on borrowed time with a 5s.  I was THIS close to just getting an 8, and moving on with my life, because I was nervous about never having the home button anymore and the whole face thing making the phone turn on all the time or whatever.   Anyway, I am still paralyzed with indecision.

The iPhone X just made my company's list of employer-provided devices, but requires a $400 employee contribution.

I've had a 6s for two years and like it. Please tell me if it is worth $400 to jump from a 6s to a X, and why. Or whether I should wait for the Xs (whatever it will be called).

I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

Seriously thinking of going to Verizon to get a Pixel 2.  Currently on Sprint  :Crybaby: and on an HTC M One. 
I'm half tempted to get an 8 or X just for simplicity and warranty support. I was kinda disappointed to learn HTC makes the Pixel.

Aren’t you getting some money back that you wouldn’t normally have had?

if I were going to do it over again, after having my iphone x for a few weeks, id opt for the 8+ over the x

my experience with the x has been hamstrung though with the buggy as crap ios 11

I've had a Pixel 2 XL since release.  I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

I am probably going to need to get a new (Android) phone soon as my S6 uses up the charge pretty quickly. Also, several of my charging cords have annoyingly stopped working because the little prong things get pushed down just a tiny bit and then my phone won't connect with it.

I bumped up to a 7 and have been pleased. Mrs wacky bumped up to a 7+ and loves it. I'm content.

In what ways?  I haven't really had any trouble.  An App has crashed a few times over the course of the last month, but it seems to work really well overall.

The charging port door on my free sony phone doesn't stay closed anymore so I ripped it off and will probably buy a new one of the same phone for nothing on ebay so that I don't have to learn anything new should the current phone get mumped up now.
