    Need some advice. Looking at upgrading my current iPhone in the next few months, need some advice on what I should get.

    I currently have a iPhone 7 Plus. I am looking at either the X or the red 8 plus. While the 8 plus is more cost effective, am I just upgrading to the same type of phone in a different colour. The X is more of an upgrade in design and abilities, however it is more expensive.

    Looking for your thoughts and/or experience with each of these phones. Let me know what you like and don't like about the 8 plus and X

    We can't really advise you on that because you'll only get what we would pick. Base your purchase on your own wants and desires by visiting the Apple website and doing a side by side comparison, and also by visiting an Apple store and playing with both phones. While the 7 Plus and the 8 Plus may almost the same size, internally the 8 Plus is quite an upgrade over the 7 Plus.

    Having said that, my own opinion of course, I prefer the fingerprint ID over facial ID. Not ready to give that up. Having held both at the Apple store, I'm glad I bought the 8 Plus. I really hate the look of that silly notch at the top of the screen on the X.

    I personally prefer the X over the 8 Plus. Both devices are great and as stated by Sherry_B, I'd also recommend visiting the Apple website or the store to check it out for yourself.

    I prefer (and use) the iPhone 8 Plus and love it, though I haven't tried the X and can't offer an opinion on it. I just find the home button so convenient when using Apple Pay and wanted to wait for the second gen of Face ID before getting a phone like that.

    I really love red but I can’t choose a phone over color. To me, the X is the clear winner.

    I love my X, but I'd be lying if I hadn't thought about trading it in for a PRODUCT(red) 8 Plus. I love that thing.

    I won’t give my advice but I chose the X for its Gestures and size to screen ratio

    I’d get the X, even though the red 8 Plus is taunting me. You could probably shave the price down on a X by trading in your 7 Plus, or selling your 7 Plus for $$$! Selling or trading would take a bit of heartache out of buying the iPhone X

    I love my x and wouldn't have anything else at this point. Gestures are easy to get used to and I don't even notice or think about the notch.
