    This is my first Plus phone and my first Space Gray. I honestly don't know why I kept picking Silver/White because when the phone sleeps, the melding of the black screen and black body is so damn aesthetically pleasing.

    Just got the 8 Plus today. Haptic feedback is something I'm getting used to. I have no issues with the fake home button but then I also don't have an issue with the low surface travel keyboards.

    It's much, much faster than my 6s. I'm in love.

    That is beautiful. I have the 6S plus in rose gold now and I’m seriously thinking I’ll go with the space gray 8 plus when I upgrade. I like that seamless and sleek black front too. Very nice! Congrats!

    Thanks! The phone is stunning. You'll see it if you decide on it. The Gold looks good too.

    Congrats on picking up the Lord Vader 8 Plus! It was my third choice

    I've had nothing but black/dark phones. Went with silver this time because of the white appearance.

    Congrats!! My first 8 Plus (256g) as well. In fact, my first iPhone. Was a BlackBerry user for years, then went to Samsung and was a die hard Note fan. However, I decided on the iPhone 8 Plus because I have an iPad Pro 10.5 and a Macbook Pro. Got mine in gold to match my iPad Pro Oh, and I have been absolutely amazed by everything about this phone. I thought about waiting for the X, but decided on the 8 Plus because the X doesn't come in gold. LOL! Silly reason, I know. Seriously though, there wasn't enough different, in my opinion, to make me wait.

    Enjoy your 8 Plus. You won't be disappointed!

    Very nice!
    I’m sure the 8 Plus will complement your iPP and MBP very well.

    Awesome.

    I was teetering between silver and space gray, but I went with the silver because it hides fingerprints better.

    I got away from silver for a while but it looks really good with the glass back.

    Congrats!
    The iPhone 8 has been shadowed by the X, but for us getting them it’s an awesome device!
    So awesome that I managed to covert my wife over. She got the Gold 8 Plus. Never thought that would happen. Now we are nothing rocking 8 Plus and couldn’t be happier.
    While the X looks like an awesome device. Wanna give it a year or two to see how this Face ID plays out.

    Congrats on the new phone. I am the opposite of you. I have always gone with Space Grey. So when I bought my 8 Plus I decided I would go with gold. Well it sure was a nice change to see white instead of black. I still have my 7 Plus Jet Black for backup though.

    The iPhone X will be the most talked about iPhone this year, but the 8 Plus will be the most underrated. It's just as powerful as the X and has most of the same features, and you can get it now. Enjoy your purchase.

    Congrats on your purchase! I hope it treats you well

    I've had the 8+ for just under 2 weeks now after having an iPhone 6 for just under 3 years. I decided to give the 6 to my father after his 5 broke.

    Everyone I know with a plus size iPhone loves it. They all told me to get one so I did. I do like the screen, the camera and especially the speed. Only thing I don't like is the size. It just feels so darn big in my pockets and hand. The 6 was soooo light I hardly knew I was carrying it. I decided to try and order a X for delivery on launch day. I was able to do that so the 8+ is going back to Apple tonight. Hopefully all the new gestures don't cross me up too much...lol.

    Please don’t say “It’s not the X”.... The 8+ doesn’t take a backseat to anything!

    Congrats on your new phone! My wife has the 8 plus and loves it.
    I’m not into the plus size phones and have a 7 but that’s why having a variety of sizes is nice.
    Enjoy!
