    I loved the Note 7 as well, but after demoing the Note 8, I don’t see myself going that route again. I am pretty well invested in the ecosystem now. 7, 7+, iPad Pro, Pencil, Watch, MacBook Air.

    I bought the 7 used from Gazelle when I got tired of my Galaxy S7 edge. Eventually I traded in the Samsung on an upgrade. Now the 7 Plus is my daily driver, and the 7 is the backup.

    As it stands it seem the only way to unlock the 8 is with facial rec. that doesn't sit well with me so I'll skip that one. If a solid 7s plus doesn't come out, I'll get the 7 plus.

    I’d like to think that is an option that can be enabled and disabled.

    I have high expectations for Face ID, and I really hope it’ll work out smoothly. I’m definitely going to miss Touch ID.

    The new 7s Plus (or 8 Plus) will still have the Touch ID fingerprint.

    I said no but probably will now as found out my contract pay out is $612 so can sell my 7 128Gb to cover that, but will cost me probably another $20 a month or so but with more data, still cheaper than buying outright though.

    I am going to hold off at launch, but only because I am waiting/hoping for another good Christmas iPhone deal.

    considering the latest rumours, I'm not planning to buy the iPhone X (far too expensive for me) and I'm going to buy the 8, or maybe the 8 Plus, coming from an iPhone 7. I don't hate bezels and I'm in love with the new home button.

    I currently have a 6S Plus. It's the only phone i've ever had for two years. It all comes down to pricing. I wouldn't mind setting for the 7S Plus if the X is too expensive. I'll be selling my 6S Plus to cover some of the cost. Heck, I may keep it as a backup.

    It seems like you'll have to pay $1,099 for an iPhone X 128GB.

    I'm seriously balking at the rumored price of this phone, but I don't really feel compelled to consider an upgrade that seriously, since I'm using a 7 Plus. Given how lackluster the upgrades from 6 Plus to 6s Plus, and then to 7 Plus has been... I'm likely to feel disappointed if I were to buy any of these newer models.

    I am going to be watching the press conference but I am not upgrading to the iphone 8. I am not on an upgrade plan so I bought my iphone 7 plus 128 GB out of pocket last year but thankfully only paid 600 with apple care since I traded in my old iphone 6. My 7+ still works fine and I really can't justify spending 800-1,000 dollars on another phone so soon. plus I am looking to get an Xbox One X which costs like 500 in November so I would rather get than instead of a phone. I will get next years iphone the iphone 9 or whatever it will be called.

    Those rumors point to a smaller frame. The iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5” screen and a large frame. The rumors point to a frame between the sizes of the 7 and 7 Plus and being a little thicker, however it would have a 5.8” screen. Easier to hold with a bigger screen.
    And harder to put in the pocket.

    I am going to go out on a limb here and say most of the people in this thread that are saying that ARE NOT upgrading to the iphone 8 will be hyped after the conference today and find themselves up at midnight or 3 AM EST when pre orders go live and drop 800-1,000 on the phone ha. I sorta envy those that are upgrading and I will be living through you all on these forums ha. Hopefully, the iphone 9 next year will be an even better upgrade.

    Nah, price to high (if the rumours are true) and I’m happy with my 7, nothing will make me buy the 8, until my 7 breaks.

    Plus, if it looks like the leaked images, it’s ugly, ew.

    Agree with first part. The prices have gotten to a point where keeping a phone for 30-36 months seems so largely reasonable, because the price of the devices have become unreasonable.

    I won't regret this at all. I watch the events ma I my to check when the iOS/macOS updates will be released. Last year I completely skipped watching the event an d still upgraded, and the upgrade from the 6s plus to 7 Plus wasn't even really noticeable - so it's really just "get something nee" and not hype that pushes me to upgrade.

    But even people who routinely throw money away meet their limits, Lol. I have met mine.

    I upgraded from a 6 to 7 and skipped the 6s, I think that’s most likely what I’ll be doing this time. Waiting to see what they come up with in sept 2018. I’ll still watch the keynote later tonight though.

    I'm planning on sticking with my 7 plus for now. I've heard that the 8 is going to be a little smaller than the plus and I don't want to go down in size. But than again I'm been saying that every year and end up upgrading anyway. But hopefully this year I'll skip.
    Just bought the 10.5" iPad Pro with 256gb space gray today. Now for sure I don't have the money at all for the new iPhones. Unless someone buys my 7 plus for $650. I still owe AT&T $614 on it with AT&T Next. That's how I bought the iPad. Another $54 added to my wireless bill.

    I was going to stick with my iPhone 7, but my wife has her own personal "bend-gate" with my old iPhone 6 and the glass is bending out of the bezel. So not sure how much longer that will last. I have been wanting the iPhone X, but the price, added apple care cost, the notch and the facial made me change my mind. Being I wanted a better camera (for obvious reasons) and a bigger screen the 8+ was the logical choice. I could get it at pre-order, under 1K, and still have my Touch ID. Win-Win (except for the fact that I am still out about $1050 after tax of course)
