    Somehow the terminology doesn't change my choice.

    My point still stands.
    I agree with you on the Plus model, that’s my choice too. But it probably will have wireless charging and you will learn to love it. I have a Samsung S8+ and 2 wireless Fast Chargers that really make keeping the phone charged easy.

    I'll wait to see what the various hardware/software features are for the supposed 7S/8. Assuming that the rumors about no TouchID with the 8, not sure if I like that. However, the more advanced iPhone may support more or have exclusive capabilities and features. Need to learn more from the upcoming official Apple announcement.

    Hopefully the 7s plus come in at a much more favourable price because of the demand for the 8. Would be nice
    I think the price will be the same as iPhone 7 Plus, since the iPhone X will cost way more.
    But maybe in a quite short time iPhone 8 Plus will be available at a lower price.

    I can't seem to make up my mind whether or not I want the 10 or the 8 Plus. Honestly, I'm not sure that I'm quite ready to give up using the fingerprint feature. I kinda like it. Also, at this time there is no option on the Apple site for an unlocked version of the 10 (there is for the 8). When it goes live if there is not an option to buy an unlocked 10, that will be the main reason I won't get it.

    So that would leave me with trying to decide if I want the 7 Plus or the 8 Plus. What does the 8 offer over the 7? Here's what "I'm" looking at;

    The 8 has -


    • A11 Bionic Chip (7 has A10 Fusion Chip)
    • Wireless charging, the 7 does not.
    • 256GB option, the 7 does not.
    • True Tone display, the 7 does not.
    • Neural engine, the 7 does not.
    • M11 motion coprocessor, (7 has M10)
    • True Tone Flash with Slow Sync, the 7 does not have Slow Sync.
    • Portrait Lighting, the 7 does not.
    • 4K Video with 24fps and 60fps, the 7 does not (only 30fps).
    • Bluetooth 5.0, the 7 does not.
    • Galileo and QZSS (for cellular and wireless), the 7 does not.
    • Supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 content, the 7 does not.
    • Fast-charge capable (up to 50% charge in 30 minutes), the 7 does not.


    Things that "I" don't care about;

    Bezel. I just don't care about a bezel on a phone. TV yes, but big woop if it's on my phone.
    Neural engine. Since the 8 has no Face ID or Animoji, the only use for this on the 8 would be for augmented reality which I care nothing about.

    I personally think that the X is more worth it compared to the 8. It comes down to personal preference and I don’t think you can go wrong with either the 8 or the X.

    I do agree, but I dunno if I'm ready to give up fingerprint id just yet. That and I'm waiting to see if there's an unlocked version. Without it being unlocked I have no use for it (I'm the happiest I've ever been with the current BYOP plan that I have).

    The iPhone 8 starts at $699 whereas the iPhone X starts at $999 U.S. dollars. Whether it’s worth it depends on you.
