    I don't think that's too terrible. About what I expected. I figure T-Mobile will have a $150 down payment.

    $949 for the 256GB iPhone 8 Plus is so much better than $999 for the 64GB iPhone X model.

    Seems good to me considering it is packing almost the same specs as the X. Give the X a year.

    8 plus pretty much the same as X I don't like the X because it's too pricey for face ID, animal emojis and landscape watching videos too awkward.

    Basically expected it. Didn't expect only two storage choices though. That blindsided me.

    Agreed! Plus the rumored price tag of over $1K for the X helped soften the blow a bit but the storage capacity offered did shock me. I thought the 64 GB was a joke especially for someone like me who already has 128 GB and is steadily adding music, photos, apps, videos, etc. to my phone.

    Nothing shocked me about today EXCEPT the 2 storage options. I always say more storage is never a bad thing but 128 GB was pretty much the sweet spot for me. I have well over 100 GB of data on my phone, so I can't downgrade to a 64 GB at this point. 256 GB will just give me a ton more space for music and photos. Still trying to decide between the 8 Plus and the X.

    I'm an Apple Music junky and have so much downloaded to my phone it'd put SiriusXM to shame. 64 GB is cutting it close!

    Give the X a year? It's an anniversary model. I don't see Apple going forward with 3 models each year.

    I think he means it's new technology. We're in unexplored territory right now and for all we know, the new features in the X could be a busy. I'm sure the iPhones next year will include the features of the X - so "give it a year" to see how the technology pans out and decide if you want to take the jump then.

    Overall I'm pretty happy with it and is kinda what i expected. Seeing $7xx as a price tag for the "Plus" iPhone was already a tick in my books. Just allows more people to purchase a new iPhone. I feel like $899 would have been nicer for the $256GB model but i guess $949 is ok considering it is 256GB of storage. Thats pretty massive.

    The features/form factor will probably be what moves forward, going away from the current almost 10 year old look. I bet by next year all models look like the X.

    Maybe, I think it will depend upon how well production goes. If they can get the yield to come up, then we might see them do away with the regular 7 or 8 type iPhone and go with the size they have now and a plus size.

    Yeah, that's been my thinking. Pricing will be interesting to see. I'm thinking the X replaces the 4.7" model with a larger version replacing the 5.5". But then, would pricing start at $999? Surely not. I think I'm thinking too much ahead.

    I hope not!
    $999 is a bit too much for the majority of people.

    Excellent price. For only $30 more than my 7 Plus 32gb I get 64gb plus everything better accept form factor which is actually ok with me. I also like the glass better in the hand and for scratch purposes. I also like the look of this form with the Touch ID. I’m happy with the 8 plus.

    I really don't know why the pricing had to increase. Likely it had to do with increase production costs and Apple insisting on maintaining their profit margin for each device they sell. In contrast, historically Samsung's devices were more expensive to produce; however, their profit margin was lower than Apple's...until now.

    Apparently the increase in price is due to Samsung increasing its OLED price.
