I really don't like where they have the camera at all, and to be honest, I like having a notch; it's a nice reminder of where not to put my greasy fingers. For sure there are some neat advancements.

Something to consider if you do decide to take the plunge; you are at the mercy of your carrier for software (OS) updates. You basically have to wait for Google, then Samsung, then your carrier before you get updates. It can take months if it happens at all, or at least that was the case when i took a stroll on the dark side. It's frustrating. I got a total of two updates in the year I had my Note, and by the time I had switch back to iPhone, I was a full Android release behind (and it wasn't expected for months still.)

I am not too concerned about updates, Apple less and less even has me wanting to upgrade my OS. I also buy my phones outright from Apple and would do the same if I bought a Samsung. Not sure if that changes anything in that regard.

It will be a few years before I switch from my new XR so who knows what will happen in that time. My fingers never go anywhere near the notch or the top of any iPhone I have had before so that would not be an issue for me. I think part of it is other companies are doing exciting things whereas Apple really just talks themselves up while not offering a whole of new stuff. Now Apple has done amazing things, just it seems to be dwindling and their BIG ideas are not all that big. Touch bar on the MacBook pro? Even the iPhone X while it looks great still was just following some Android phone trends. Face ID has been around a while (cannot compare, no idea if Apple Face ID is better then Android). Wireless charging again around a while and there was already fast charging which Apple still has not opted for. The iPhone X sill has a bezel where some founds have started rounded the screen around the edge making it look like there is no bezel.

Feels like I am ranting all the time about Apple and I people obviously still love the company, I have just stopped caring as much about anything they do because it does not Appeal to me or seems to be going in a backwards direction.

For me, I just want a good quality phone with a great camera that will not break the bank. $1500.00 for a phone is insane for me.
