iPhone X is still the very first iPhone for me that at least looks interesting, even somewhat good.

I personally think IPhone 8 Plus is the best option. IPhone X is too expensive for no reason.

Piracy has naught to do with smart phone sales, and while there are people that cannot afford latest uber-expensive device from apple, there are also those that do, but chose not to support apple and/or prefer different experience.
iPhones are not expensive, they are more like a good investment. My iPhone 5s still works well and fast and is updated to the latest iOS. I will see if I can make it for one more year with iOS 11, if not I will be very pleased to upgrade to a iPhone 8 or maybe 10. A four years old Android is like a time capsule. And laggy too. Not capable to get the latest updates of many apps. Not to mention about security patches. Android phones are just false economy. In another example, I've recently sold my 5 years old MacBook Pro, late 2011 that I had purchased for 1300 USD for 600 USD. I added 700 more and I now have the latest Pro. 700 for a bright new Mac is not expensive, is it?
Alien , 17 Sep 2017Who wants to see an iPhone getting destroyed? :D Waiting for suggestions :))I want to see Apple destroyed (Because it really affects all the companies AND all the users. Negatively, of course), but that can anly happen if people gain some self-respect and start using their brains. Which probably means never.

yeah, don't like them as well.
Guys, to be clear. I don't hate ANYTHING! Apple is ageing 3x better comparing to samsung. In my country these phones are very expensive. And after years, samsung pushed software apps and updates that made my phone very slow. Comparing to factory os that is as fast as iphone. Maybe 1 second late. Ios is Ios and android is android. I still prefer android for downloading apks but I can spend money on apps. No problem. I am considering going with iphone 8. Especially since galaxy alpha was the last sub 5 inch phone that was flagship. There are certain things that gets removed, but has alternatives. One is to remove a thing like IR blaster. Another is to remove SD card. You can backup data via cloud. While IR blaster was good it was useful for me. Samsung is pushing curved screen that I don't like that much. And samsung phones are very big. I am dissapointed with apple with iphone x for selling fast charge separately and it leaves you with 5w charger. But samsung is dissapointing me even more with curved 18.5:9 aspect ratio. So, for people that wants powerful phones with very long-term support and ageing, iphone is better. My dad had iphone 4,6 and now 7. 4 is still going on since 2010. Iphone 6 is good as new. And 7 as well.
Maybe samsung will wake up and stop sending and forcing shit softwares that bloats your phone. Maybe then, samsung will put apple out of misery. I can't wait that day. Keep dreaming...

The rest of your post? Well that's the typical "first world" brainwashing/conditioning.
55% don't like 'em.
Then in less than seven weeks, you won't be able to find the iPhone X anywhere except on eBay for double the retail price. Then it will sell 90M by the end of 2018 and be the best-selling smartphone around the world like iPhone 7 was for this year.
This site is filled with Apple haters and Sony/Samsung fanboys with the occasional HTC/LG fanboys. This poll will contradict what will really happen after November 3. The iPhone X is expected to be the 2nd best-selling iPhone ever only behind the iPhone 6/6 Plus at 100M.
Good luck getting the iPhone X before the year ends. It will be worse than trying to find the Nintendo Switch, NES and SNES Classic Editions. Haters are gonna hate now mainly on price or the design but will eventually warm up to it. The iPhone 6 was uglier and it still became the most popular iPhones ever.
Gesture swipes (homage to webOS, QNX/BB10, Meego/Sailfish) will be a big feature. You won't miss that home button just by learning to swipe up. Then watch Samsung finally copy it. I plan to keep all my phones and still waste away $1000 for the iPhones.
Most of these haters come from third-world countries who have saved thousands of dollars on piracy. They illegally download music, TV shows, movies, books, games. They sideload paid apps. They only want FREE FREE FREE. Think about all the illegal downloads Game of Thrones had recently and how much HBO lost?
These freeloaders don't realize Apple is a business and not a charity. As if your inability to afford it is their problem. They don't understand the manufacturing costs, the R&D costs, the SoC being faster than laptops,. Just blinded with hate because it's Apple and that price tag.
The iPhone X will be the biggest seller of 2018 and this poll result will easily be forgotten.

While if you buy the full SoC, the costs decreases. Samsung has their own Shannon modem but the license is expensive, explaining why the S7 and 8 have a SD instead of the superior E889x in the US. This is at the core of an ongoing lawsuit against Qualcomm's abuse of dominant position in the US, overcharging the fees for a modem alone to force OEMs to use their SD SoCs
