What's my iPhone worth?

    I have used it in the past, and I think the best uses are overnight charging, and in vehicle charging. I had a mount in my car with a wireless charger built in. It was nice to just be able to set it in there and it kept the charge while using nav, or streaming music, etc. If you use CarPlay though you still have to plug in so that doesn't even matter now. I guess it is nice that Apple phones will be able to use the built in chargers in many new vehicles.

    Yep. I’m not interested in wireless charging but I preordered the 8 plus because I want the A11 and other features, including the bezels and home button. But I’ll stick with wires for charging until speeds increase. But many times I like to hold and use my phone while charging. Difficult to do that on a charging pad.

    I was planning on giving my daughter my 7+. So I needed to upgrade to something. I like the move to gestures but the X is unattractive with the notch in my opinion and also just way overpriced for me on principal. The 8+ is t that much of an upgrade over the 7+. So I just bought a red 7 + last night. I'll wait to see what Apple releases next year. I would like a gesture phone but they need to work on the appearance of the device and bring the price back down to earth.

    I am going to skip the X and either go with the 8+ or just keep my 7+ .. I am only a few months into my 7+ and love it and might just stand put for the next year... Who Knows?? I say that every year and end up in line getting the newest one

    While I might consider upgrading just for the better cpu and camera, I owe too much on my 7+ to do it. If you've got the money to spare...

    That is my issue. I still owe too much on my 7+

    I’m hoping Verizon or some third party retailer comes up with some Black Friday special lol. I’m maybe 6 months into my DPP for my 7+

    I currently have an iPhone 7 Plus. But, being the gadget person that I am, iPhone 8 Plus was ordered today.
    And, more than likely on 27th Oct, I'll review/order an X. Something tells me I won't like the feel of it in the hand (slippery, and scary to hold, etc.).

    We'll see...

    I’m on Apple’s iphone upgrade program and can upgrade my 7 Plus. I’m not interested in the X. I m a weirdo who actually likes the current form factor with the home button and bezels. So I want to update to the 8 Plus. I have a matte black and thought the silver 8 plus looks nice for a change. There’s very little out of pocket, maybe tax on the unit is all on the upgrade program. I get one upgrade a year so it’s fun to try a new phone out every year.

    I’ve heard a lot of iphone tech people say don’t waste your time on the 8 or 8 plus if you have a 7. I disagree. It has a better camera, processor and for me a storage upgrade from 32 to 64 gb so it seems like a good deal at only $30 more at $799 vs the $769 iPhone 7 Plus. Maybe next year the X will entice me more.

    I’m also tempted instead to get a 128gb red 7 plus as my local store has them still. I love the looks of it but the 8 has the newer tech I’d love to try out.

    Are any of you planning on upgrading to the 8 or 8 plus?
    If you like the current form factor then continue buying it. To be honest, I’m still enjoying my iPhone 7 Plus, but I wanted a non-Plus size this time around and so I ordered an iPhone 8. Do I like the new edge to edge display of the iPhone X? Yes, I do. Am I contemplating on getting it even though I just bought an iPhone 8? Yep. Will I go ahead an actually buy the iPhone X? I’ll decide after I’ve had time with my iPhone 8.

    I have a 7 Plus... 8 Plus to me not worth it. Interested in the X, but will wait until next one so the bugs can get flushed out. 7 Plus has been great over the past year.

    I think the X will eventually wear off . Don't hate me. I have had all Touch screen notes and eventually they start lagging and freezing up. Hopefully you X users won't have that problem definitely put screen protector on and case it as well.
    I like the bezel and the screen on my 7+. I have screen protector and it's cased. I don't have issues with keyboard and lagging. TOUCH ID. That's a definite deal breaker for me. Got to have it
    Everyone has different needs.

    Th X to me looks more like a Galaxy than an IPhone. And every Galaxy that I have owned (which is most of them) the Lag set in after a few months. I am not saying that this will happen, but something about the X makes me love my 7+ even more.

    The glass is definitely gonna be better in so many ways. Espl the 2017 glass versions are gonna be more durable than the previous ones.
    That's a bold statement considering durability tests haven't been performed and in general the current body holds up fairly well in my experiences.

    I chose a 7+ in May cause I knew I wasn't ready for bezeless display and a design overhaul I'm still not sure about. I am sure the X will be amazing but I think it's worth waiting for version 2 next year

    I still have a major problem with the price. Paying $1,000 for a cellphone is crazy

    I told abt the new ones based on the durability level of the current and old ones. It was my personal opinion.

    As much as I understand the argument of the cost of smartphones these days. Remember quite a few people complained about 'financing' (AT&T Next) a phone. Now it almost seems to be the norm for most people.

    I'm all about buying it outright...

    It’s not a bad idea to simply acquire the phone via the finance option and then pay it off shortly thereafter...

    Hmm, not a bad idea. Plus the seller doesn't get all my money up front while I wait for the product...

    I would have concerns over the massive battery drop from about 2900 mAh in the 7 Plus to about 2600 mAh in the 8 Plus. Maybe the A11 CPU is really that good, but increasing the weight of the phone by adding a glass back was a bad idea (I'm guessing they cut the battery size because that was the easiest way to drop weight and one of the heaviest parts of any phone). I'd rather have a huge battery than wireless charging.

    And like others have said this seems like a good year to sit it out and see what Apple comes out with next near especially with the X line. Would they possibly add the under the screen fingerprint scanner next year or have they totally dropped that in favor of facial recognition? Personally I'd rather not have that many sensors on my phone being more things could malfunction and cease to work.
