    I read an article yesterday about the 7s and 7s Plus. It seems they will also have wireless charging, the same processor as the 8 and will retain the LCD screen. Sounds perfect to me. I'll pass on the 8 with its AMOLED screen. Never cared for them really.

    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 s models will be priced like the 7 and 7+. I also think they will outsell the 8.

    They will surely be easier to get at launch.

    IKR! The 8 may actually take the pressure of the s models and make this the easiest iPhone season ever!!

    Seems like it'll be the easier price tag to swallow

    I have been saying that there is a better chance of me grabbing a 7s Plus than an 8/Pro. I think it will be worth waiting until next year to let Apple work out the issues that are bound arise with new(to them) tech.

    When the new models come out, they usually discount older models. I hope to find a good price on last year's 7 plus as a replacement for my 5s instead of getting the new 7s or 8.

    I agree. I think the 8 will be buggy.

    I’m hoping to get two of the 7S plus for me and my (then) wife.
    As much as I’d love the 8 I think for us they will be too expensive and far more than what we need. We don’t even need wireless charging, that’ll just be a bonus

    You don't think you need wireless charging until after you've had it a while.

    Since I'm already used to the size of the 7 Plus I could easily continue to deal with the bezels and overall size, especially if the 8/Pro is very difficult to find. For me, wireless charging would be the one thing that if it were exclusive to the 8/Pro that would force my hand.

    Agreed. I have my heart set on the 7s+, so hopefully the price point will be up my alley.

    I'm very excited for the 8 as well. At a minimum, I will give it some time to see how it shakes out. I'm leaning towards the 7s this year though and going for the premium flagship next year. It will be interesting to see how the line up develops after this years transition.

    The 7S+ is not an option for due to it's size. There's absolutely not reason for a phone with a 5.5"screen to be that big.So it can only be the iPhone 8 or whatever they decide to call it for me.

    I agree that the 7+ is a little on the large side for a 5.5" screen but don't buy into all the no bezel hype. I have a Samsung S8+ and I wouldn't mind a little more bezel on the sides.

    Ideally Apple should reduce all 4 bezels by half. That would be perfect IMO.

    Agreed, I am just trying to deal with the lesser of two evils.

    I have a nice Belkin iPhone/watch dock so not interested in wireless charging at all, i like my phone vertical when charging i imagine apples charger will be flat.

    So 7S will be same size as 7 for cases?

    Think I am over plus size phones so will either keep my 7 for now and see how the 8 goes. Maybe.

    I feel the same way. I really liked my S8+. Great phone and I enjoyed the form factor, but there are a lot of times when I appreciate a little more bezel.

    And a flat screen!! I'm not a fan of the curved screens.

    My phone charges quickly. I had wireless charging when I was on Samsung. My belkin charger is fat enough for me. My battery lasts all day. I charge while sleeping

    I am the kind of consumer that always goes for the best technology available for the product in looking into. I bought an iPhone 6s and was completely happy with it and had no plans for an iPhone 7. However, a Verizon Black Friday deal offered me $650 trade in for my 6s so of course I got an iPhone 7 for almost no cost (who wouldn’t?). But in this case, as much as I like the designs shown for the iPhone 8, I just can’t do it. For once in my life now that I no longer use Android I have a phone that’s not completely bogged down or glitchy due to updates. I will probably upgrade to the 8s (or whatever the next one is) when the time comes but who knows. My iPhone 7 is in such great condition I could put it in a box, seal it and claim it’s new.

    Time will tell. Bout time I let others beta test for me. I spent too much on an Xbox One X pre-order to buy a phone anyway, lol.
