As for me, it was a choice between the 8 Plus and X. I went for the 8 Plus because the X doesn't have a dedicated home button, and therefore, no fingerprint sensor. I am also not a fan of the notch on top of the display window. That would be an eyesore for me. I prefer to unlock with my fingerprint instead of my face, but that is just me. I could also not justify the extra expense.
