    Pre-order on Friday morning, is making me nervous...why don't they have more black colors? I feel like everyone will be going for the space grey.

    You're probably right. I have the same feeling which is why I picked a backup color. I have a rose gold 7 Plus right now, and had a matte black for 9 months before that...Think I'll do silver as a secondary fail safe.

    I thought it was interesting reintroducing space grey but it makes sense. You can’t have a glass-covered iPhone with a matte finish.

    I'm hoping it's darker. Please be darker than the gray.

    I just can't do the white on the front anymore. I have the gold iPhone 7, because it was the only iPhone available at ATT after the note 7 debacle

    I have the gold and i actually hate it. I just don't know if that's enough to justify the X or the 8+ or whatever.

    If I opt for the iPhone 8, I will definitely pick the silver color this time around.

    The glass somehow brings out its beauty like it did with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, in my opinion.

    Isn't the phone color shown in the keynote typically the one most go for? If so that would make space grey the color to have similar to jet black last year. Plus many on here have stated wanting a black phone so this would be the closest to that color. I think a backup color would be a good plan B to have in this case.

    Also it seems a lot of people are bored with the 8/8+ models and are opting to wait for the X. /shrug

    My AT&T guy said just come here on pre-order day, we open at 8 and pre-order. That will be my back up plan.

    Oh god, I hope so. I've visited a lot of sites and not a lot of people are happy with the X and are getting the 8 plus

    Will be interesting to see which phone most decide to pre-order. I think once we get some real world feedback that people's initial opinions may change.

    I would probably go for the Space Gray colour. While the Silver does look nice, it just feels a little "plain" to me. It does seem a little weird for Apple to be re-introducing a colour they previously discontinued but as Rob Phillips said, You can’t have a glass-covered iPhone with a matte finish. Would have loved to see a White colour (Snow White, or Frost White) but Apple doesn't seem to be interested.

    Yeah, I think thats exactly what Apple was going for. They want all the attention to go towards the iPhone X so they cant let it get upstaged by the iPhone 8. Naturally, it will be a "boring" iPhone in comparison. They were like "here is our new iPhone 8, we don't really care about it but if you want to get it you can. Now look at our actual flagship phone that looks great with all the new features." The iPhone 8 does look super similar to the iPhone 6, 6s and 7 but some people like the design and will be happy to stay with it.

    I've been going back and fourth between the Note 8 and 8 plus. Only reason I would go with an android device, is because I get a new phone every year, so I'm willing to try new things.

    It doesn’t hurt to have the latest and greatest offerings of both OS.

    I don't like the X look and if I upgrade in a few months would be the 8+. But I am unsure of color. I have the rose gold 7+ and really like it. I would want to see the new gold they are releasing. It would be that or the space grey and definitely 256 gig. I wish Apple would make their phones with SD card slot as well. That would be awesome. I have to see it in person to really decide. I am happy with my 7+ and am keeping it for now. But I might have new phone fever one of these days

    Before this morning when I got the space grey 256 8 plus, I bought the iPhone 7 128, and I still have 89 GB left, and I have a lot of music and photos on it
