I decided not to upgrade at this time... mainly b/c i do not want to spend $500 today when I can spend that same $500 (less when I account for inflation) in a few years for the next generation console.
I just do not see the benefit of an X upgrade.
I own both the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X, and I like playing on the Xbox One X more. But, I have my Xbox One X in my media room hooked up to a 4K HDR display and a Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 system, which sounds great. My Xbox One S is hooked up to a 4K HDR display (every TV in my house is 4K HDR) but a 7.1 system in my living room. The picture quality on the Xbox One S looks great on my LG W7, but I like the Xbox One X mostly because of the sound system it's connected to. Games like Assassin’s Creed Origins sounds very emersive in Dolby Atmos. While playing the game and standing in any town where people are, you can hear these people all around you. However, I haven't hooked the Xbox One S in my media room for direct comparison.
Only thing I wish is further range on the controllers. Both of my Xboxs are setup in a rack, and my controller cuts out frequently.
