    If I was going to purchase an iPhone this year, the 8 Plus would be the best option. It has wireless charging, Bluetooth 5.0, and AR cameras like the iPhone X, but it'll be like $300 cheaper.

    I would now be interested in getting a 7 when it goes down in price.

    And then canceled it because I found one at a store an hour away ready to pick up lol

    Me too. Trying to decide if the Plus will be too big for me since I'm upgrading from a 6S.

    It’s worth going over to the Plus.
    It definitely is not a one handed device unlike the 7/8.

    What makes it worth the switch then?

    Bigger display, 1080p, dual camera system, better battery life

    The battery life will certainly be welcomed. Mine has been draining faster than normal lately.

    I’m a heavy user and the 7 Plus’s battery life is still not enough

    so i feel like a bad apple fan...lol...but i was reading about wireless charging last night (i know NOTHING about it) and i guess i assumed they'd include a charging pad with the phone (maybe that's dumb). and it looks like 3rd party pads are costing around $200 or so. so....this sorta seems like it's lost it's luster to me.

    also, if i go to charge my phone on a pad, then want to also use it, that ends the charge.

    idk...i FEEL like i can essentially get the same phone (minus wireless charging) in the 7+ /shrug

    Not true - You can get many compatible chargers for under $30.00....

    I'm the same way!! Now I'm stuck between the 8 or the 8 plus! I love the small one handed form factor of the 7 I have, but I also miss that bigger screen. I really don't want to spend upward of 900 when I can get the 8 for 700$. The dual camera is nice with the plus, but do I REALLY need that? My 7 takes some pretty good shots. This is the battle inside my head currently lol

    for me, personally, i'm a photographer/graphic designer so things like camera are usually what win me over with phones. so in that regard, the 8+ was a given. i DID buy a pop socket so i can hold on to it better. I have tiny girl hands.

    I'm sitting at $949 for the model i want. which is a lot. but i honestly plan on buying this one and keeping it until it dies. so go big or go home i guess. if you're planning on upgrading again next year, that's something to consider.

    The Plus is huge, but at the end of the day it is worth it.

    No matter which size I decide on, there is something about the iPhone, and the way it feels in my hand. Perfect balance, and a solid feel, so smooth. I'll probably end up with the plus do to its camera
