    I preordered the gold 64 iPhone 8. I am so excited to receive it in a week.

    Ordered iPhone 8 plus 256GB God for one of my lines with estimated delivery of 9/22/17, I figured most people will be running after 64GB. and will be waiting for iPhone X 256GB for my other phone.

    Count me in among those who pre-ordered the new iPhone 8 via the Apple Store app. It was a breeze. Does anyone want to bet whether or not I’ll also get the iPhone X?....

    No particular reason for my upgrade. I wanted to wait for a good deal around the holidays but to hell with that.
    I pre ordered on the Verizon app and I thought it said ship day is the 22nd but when I spoke to a Verizon rep she said ship day is the 29th. She also said, when I specifically asked, that she hasn't seen a lot of orders for the 256gb space grey ip8 and that I could get mine on the 22nd. I also checked on Apple.com and my ip8 still says ships the 22nd. So I am thinking/hoping I will receive it the 22nd. We will find out.

    Noticing in-store pickup for the 22nd still available for almost every variant in case anyone wanted to do that.

    I think you will 🤣
    I’m tempted to get the 8, but I know I’ll want the X once it’s out.

    iPhone 8+, Space Gray, 64gb
    Ah yes...coming on the 22nd

    The 10 looked nice, quite expensive. My iPhone 8+ with Apple Care still cost less than the 10. I also prefer TouchID over FaceID. Yes, that's part of the determine factor as well.

    I thought a lot about whether to keep my iPhone 6 for another 12 months in the hope that there's some trickle-down from the X into the less expensive models but decided in the end that the 8 is still a pretty good upgrade for me. The edge-to-edge screen is nice but some of it surrounds the notch, some of it is lost to the rounded corners and therefore it's not as big a gain as it is seems (and the standard iPhone screen is pretty good anyway). I'm not against FaceID but it doesn't seem worth paying extra for over TouchID, so missing those features won't make me sad.

    In short though, I've ordered a space grey 64Gb regular iPhone 8 also due on launch day. I'd have gone with 128Gb (for perhaps 779?) if it had been an option but not prepared to pay the extra for 256.

    Thanks! I think the AR game demo in the keynote helped sell it to me; that looks really cool!

    I know that from my iPhone 6 I gain a whole series of little extras too...
    3D Touch, 3 years of camera improvements (including RAW support which as a DSLR nerd is big to me), raise to wake, Hey Siri (without being connected to power) and probably others too - none of which I think are individually worth it, but as a whole really add up.

    I think it's easy to look at the X and think the 8 is the poor relation but the other way to look at it is the 8 is the pinnacle of that design of iPhone and in terms of bang-for-buck it's a really great deal

    Count me in as well Space Grey 256GB iPhone 8. Since I carry 2 devices, I decided to go with the 8. It was so much easier back when I carried & 6 & 6 plus, so I decided to go that route again. I'll still be upgrading my primary device to the X. I'm pretty excited

    BTW...I think you'll cave and get the X too

    Very nice, but you’re suppose to talk me out of getting the iPhone X........I’m hoping I’ll enjoy my iPhone 8 so much that by the time pre-ordering rolls around for the iPhone X, I won’t even think about it. We’ll see.

    It definitely is!
    The Touch ID is way more accurate, stereo speaker is amazing, and the new taptic engine is unbelievable.

    Heck, I couldn't even talk myself out of getting the 8 You might just shock yourself & keep the 8. I think so many of us are on the fence..Oct. 27 can't come soon enough lol.

    Getting the X will be bittersweet because I'm really looking forward to a smaller form factor & no home button, but I'll miss the jet black of my 7 Plus. I really wish they would have kept that color.

    I skipped the 8. The tech-nerd inside me is having a little bit of anxiety watching/hearing/reading about everyone ordering their new phones, but I know for certain I would be very upset with myself for getting the 8 when preorders for the X come around. I just need to sit and watch everyone have fun with their 8’s and patiently wait for my X preorder. Just hoping there’s not a huge backorder right out of the gates.

    That’s what I’m feeling too.. I know it’s going to be chaotic during the X preorder. Oh well.. I might not get it until early 2018

    I definitely understand, and as I’ve stated in a different thread or two, my only real interest in the iPhone X is the edge to edge display. The other items are not important enough “for me” over the iPhone 8. If I opt to get it, I’ll make use of everything it offers like I do with every iPhone I get, however, if I don’t get it, I really don’t think it’ll bother me. Besides, I could always get it later, right?

    You’ll most likely just end up with an 8 Plus after all is said and done.

    (Laughing).... Seriously, the Plus model is not in the cards for me. In fact, the Plus model wasn’t even a consideration this time around and I am not going to change my mind about it.
