    Of course I, as well as many others on the forums, will be getting the next iPhone. But I’d like to play devil’s advocate and see who is thinking about skipping it this year and why. (I know it won’t be called iPhone 8, but for simplicity’s sake I’m going with that name for now)

    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.

    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.

    As I posted in the thread about what it would take not to upgrade. I can upgrade multiple times a year on T-Mobile. So I’m probably getting it. I’ll have to see how it pans out though. If it’s $1,000+ like the rumors say, that may come with a $300-$400+ down payment. That would be the only setback for me.

    How is it downsize? The iPhone 8 will have slightly bigger screen than iPhone 7 Plus, it will be basically a plus model with reduced bezels.

    I currently have a 7. If the 8 (or whatever it's called) isn't an option at the time, I may just grab a 256GB 7+.

    The 7 Plus is pretty good, and apparently it’s selling better than any other Plus model they’ve had. I’m currently using it, and it’s really the best iPhone you can get at this time. The water resistance, the camera(s), the dual speakers, the bigger, brighter, and more colorful screen, make it an incredibly hard phone to beat. Though I’m sure they’ll give us something like ProMotion or something else they’ve branded and made themselves that will blow everything else out of the water in terms of competition. Then everyone will be rushing to get the next iPhone, including me.

    I think the LCD screen itself might be a bit bigger, but with smaller sides, kind of like the 10.5 inch iPad Pro. So more screen and less bezel (the part of the front that isn’t LCD screen). Not sure how I feel about that though, since I’m always hitting side buttons when holding a Samsung because of their “infinity” display

    Agree. The only way I'm leaving my SE any time soon would be for the SE 2.

    I'm new to the iPhone game and got my 7 Plus in Feb but I can take advantage of the Verizon annual upgrade program if I choose to. For me I'm not normally a follower of any phone let alone another edition with some minor upgrades and tweaks but from what I understand so far the iPhone 8 is suppose to be the cream of the crop with all the bells and whistles. I won't say no but I'll definitely consider it so call me a maybe but not a total yes

    I'm not. I have decided to get the Note 8 instead. But I will be keeping my 7 Plus until next iPhone release.

    If it has something with a "wow" factor I'd consider, but if not I'm good with what I've got. Another GB of RAM, different chip wouldn't wow me

    So can you explain what enough changes will make you buy?

    But soory,given that new iPhone will have bezel less OLED display,wireless Charing and fingerprint embedded in the display,it will more than enough for me to upgrade.

    The software changes were fairly forgettable for iPhone, and new hardware will not change that.

    Going to keep my 7+ for another year or two. I think two more years, since I'd like to be completely free or contract and whatnot for a while (at that point I can just start saving to buy cash and do that every 2-3 years).

    I'm becoming desensitized to the tech upgrade cycle these days, especially considering the vast majority of companies (and Apple is no exception) are very prone to under-delivering. Most people can't be objective through the guise of hype, so I don't tend to read any reviews these days. I just find friends with the device and play with them myself...

    I'm keeping my 7 till it's paid off in late 2018, just in time for the 9, lol. Reason being is that I got a promo trade-in and am paying $4/month for my jet black 128GB 7, and it's doing everything I could ask for.

    I will most likely not be getting the iPhone 8, mainly because I just got my 7+ in December. I'm still very much in love with it lol.

    The larger screen is a nice improvement but I'm happy with the size of plus's screen for now. If I had a 6s, I'd upgrade to the 8 (for the amazing camera if nothing else), but overall there just aren't enough new features for me to upgrade.

    I think I will be sticking with Apple for at least the next few phones though. I used to love all the features and options on my Androids (just came from a Note 5) but now I really do love the streamlined experience. Still will go and play with a Note 8 when it's released...just to make sure

    I'm still on the fence, however I do like the rumors that I've seen/heard about a 5.8 inch screen in a smaller frame than the 7 plus. I guess I will be paying close attention during the next Apple event.

    Same here. I’ll definitely be watching the iPhone event and more than likely getting the iPhone 8. I’m just going to wait a couple of months after launch, as I did last year with the 7 Plus.

    I say I am not interested, but after my time with the 7 plus, and seeing the leaks of the 8, my interest is growing. Definitely won't be buying one at launch, but depending on what may or may not happen with an updated SE, I could see the 8 as a great compromise for me.

    I'll definitely add a + 1 to the "no iPhone 8 list". However, I will be scouting for great deal on the iPhone 7 or 6s. 😃

    There is also the possibility of a update iPhone SE early next year so keeping an eye out for that as well. Could be going for a decent price.
