    From a value perspective, I think its best to go with the iPhone 8 Plus. But I love the added features of the iPhone X, so I'll be holding out for that. Its a long wait for October 27th!!

    Hey guys, need to pick your brains. I've been using an iPhone 6 Plus since it's release in 2014 but wasn't convinced at all by the 6S so I waited and waited. Since I am a heavy user, I can feel my 6 has aged. Now my dilemma is should I go and take advantage of the slightly reduced price of the 7 or just get the flashy 8? My budget is certainly not one that can afford the X, regrettably... Thoughts?

    Are you going to buy your new phone outright or with monthly payments through a carrier?

    What carrier are you with? I know trading in with Verizon it will take $200 off your total monthly payment if you do a device payment agreement for the iPhone 8 Plus. My mom just traded her 16 GB iPhone 6 in for $200 off an 8 Plus. That might be something to consider!

    As a chronic phone switcher I will be passing this cycle perhaps. The regular 8 an 8 plus just not enough to justify it to me. My 7 plus is serving me fine don’t do many portrait shots an wireless charging I don’t want to remove my case for it to work. The 10 I will wait till i can get hands on an see user reviews. If it’s great done deal I’ll upgrade if not I’ll wait till next year for the touched up version. An as note 7 user prior to this Samsung stepped up their game this year but I won’t be duped again for touchwiz.

    Going to stick it out with my 128GB jet black 7plus I think. I can do without the added features of the 8 line

    I commented on this post back on the 12th that I had no intention of getting any of the new iPhones as I was happy with my 7 Plus. I still think the 7 Plus is a great phone, but I decided to pass it on to someone else and I picked up the 8 Plus yesterday. I have watched and read "expert" after "expert" shoot this phone down for what could be considered obvious reasons. In my opinion the iPhone 8 Plus is the culmination of the last 10 years of iPhones. It is a fantastic phone in pretty much every way. I used the Note 8 for about 10 days because I have had every one of them and couldn't resist at least trying it. The Note is an amazing phone, but for someone in the Apple ecosystem like I seem to be these days, it wasn't going to work for me personally. I have tried the S8+ and now the Note 8 and while both are amazing and have the latest design, I still enjoy the feel and design that Apple has stuck with for the last 4 years. I think the iPhone X is a beta phone and that is just not something I am willing to test for a device that plays such an important role in my day to day activities. For that reason I will enjoy the 8 Plus and all of the internals and features that really matter to me from the iPhone X.

    I'm keeping my 7 Plus a while longer for a couple of reasons. First, the new iPhones will not work with T-mobile's new 600mhz band IF it ever launches in my area, and since signal inside a building is horrible, that's one of the things I was hoping for. The other issue is I have the 128 gig version 7 Plus with a lot of songs and movies on it totaling about 80 gigs, so the 64 gig iPhone is out which only leaves the 256 gig version. So that means either $949 for the 8 Plus or $1149 for the X. Since I'm not a big fan of the X, that leaves $949 for the 8 Plus. To maintain my $30 monthly payment so my bill won't change, that's $229.99 down. That's $229.99 I can use toward a new Tamron 600mm lens for one of my cameras, so I'm content with the 7 Plus a while longer. :-)

    I test phones for my company, so I get all the new ones. I just went from the 7 plus to 8 plus and already have the X on order through my vendor.

    The 8 plus is nice. if you are coming from a 7 plus then its not a big jump. Anything lower than that though it is a great device upgrade. Wireless charging is nice and the camera is great. I will use this one until the X comes in and as long as I can get used to the FaceID this will be my backup.

    I’ve had every single iPhone since the original...and for the first time ever I’m skipping an upgrade. In my opinion there is no reason to switch from my perfectly fine iPhone 7+ to the 8 or 8+...or perhaps even the “X”. I’m not a frequent photographer, will never play a game on my phone...nor will I show off the new sleek glass back body plate, since I’ll always use a leather Apple case. For what I need my phone to do every day, and all day...my 7+ does it greatly without one complaint, lag or failure!

    The only advantage of trading up to the X would be a faster processor and a bigger screen. But, neither are necessary...to me.

    I tried the 8 Plus for about 8 or 9 days, (14 day return period with my carrier) and I decided to return it and keep using my (paid for!) 7 Plus for another year at least. The 8 Plus was great, but not a big jump from the 7 Plus as others have stated. At least not for me it wasn't.

    It just makes most sense, to me, to wait for X2

    I am using iphone 7 plus but I will definitely upgrade to iphone X. Just love the face ID feature!

    I was planning on getting the 8+ after paying off my Series3 Watch. But I have a serious medical issue and will keep my 7+ awhile longer. I am on medical leave as of today and surgery on Wed. So spending on hold. I played with the 8+. Shame on me. Lol. Eventually. But first things first. The X is not doing it for me and the price tag is ridiculous. I love Touch ID.
    I am with my iPhone . I want the 8+. Don’t need it. I really need to concentrate on me right now. Lots of prayers please

    Not me: my 7 Plus works great, I need to control my finances and the specks don’t impress me enough to upgrade at this time. Maybe next year. Or I might just buy another 7 Plus if mine fails.

    I loved my first iPhone being the 7+ so I took the plunge and got the X. Still have to send the 7+ back.

    I can never go back to the 7 Plus.
    I LOVE the X.
    And I have a feeling I might get the bigger 6.4” X next year.

    Yep upgraded my 7+ yesterday on iUP. The 7+ will be getting mailed back to Apple next week when the return kit arrives. I already like the size better. Yeah the screen is not quite as big overall as the Plus but it's bigger than a 7/8 in the same size body almost which is exactly what I was after.

    I got my X on Friday. Returned it yesterday. Too slim. A couple of my main apps didn't use full screen(HBO Go, YouTube, Home Run Battle 2) Not impressive enough to justify the $1150 price tag.

    After 8 and X have been out with reviews, I made the right choice to get the 7+ in May. I’m very happy with my iPhone and no rush to get the new ones.

    I can’t say that I “upgraded” from my iPhone 8. I simply went out and purchased an iPhone X. Now I have both devices. There’ll be times when I take out the SIM from my iPhone X and insert it into the iPhone 8 for a while.
