Are you getting an X?

Are you getting an X?

Spectrum Support / General · October 24, 2017 at 10:26pm

With the pre-order date this Friday, well really early Saturday morning, are you planning on pre-ordering an X? Wondering what everybody's thoughts are now that we are less than a week away from October 27th. Also, anyone planning on camping out on the 3rd to get an X now that Apple is "encouraging" people to do that again?

i loved a bunch of the details, like on the storage screen, it tells you what the storage on your current device is.

a bunch of nice little touches. really nice way to handle an experience that could've been really boring.

yeah. i was concerned at first becuase the head start stuff wasn‘t showing up in the app for me. it did finally in the afternoon and once it did, the process was painless

Sticking with my iPhone 6s for now. Nothing from the X or the pixel 2 has impressed me enough to part from my hard-earned $1k.

are you all buying outright? Or going on the monthly "lease" deals most companies are doing? I miss the old subsidized pricing models. Never had an issue locking into a two year deal

i use the apple upgrade plan. cheaper than verizon's upgrade plan and it fits what I want to do with my devices + gets some pre-order timing benefits (last year i was late and still got the first ship date, though others didn't)

I was thinking of getting one, but I recently picked up an iPhone 7 (life-time Android and Blackberry user) and the bugs I've been running into have been insane. I don't know if its just my device, but iOS has been really unusable for me, so I'm actually thinking of just picking up an essential phone 😕
