    🤣🤣🤣🤣My feelings aren’t hurt. I am calling out flawed logic and erroneous assumptions. Women *can* do that devoid of any feelings. Much like many of us can squash a spider without turning into quivering mush.

    But sure let’s get part this. Although I will dispute the statement that we’re all iPhone enthusiasts here. We all know that’s far from correct.
    What does your gender have to do with anything lol.

    I have the 7 plus and I don’t see a good reason to upgrade myself. My iPhone works just fine. BUT. If someone was to give me the $615 that I owe on ATT Next than I would probably upgrade right away and get the 8 plus. I personally don’t like the X, but that’s just me. Maybe on the iPhone XI, or whatever it’s called next year, the Touch ID might come back under the screen. I was thinking maybe it might come this year but it didn’t. Hope it isn’t gone.

    But what about the 7 plus. I have too sell that first. Besides, with the new 10.5” iPad Pro bought two weeks ago, my wireless bill with att is now about $400 a month.

    Ha!!! Well how often do guys talk amongst themselves about “hurt feelings?” Fact is when the phrase “hurt your feelings” is uttered, it’s mostly in reference to women.

    Battery is AMAZING. I actually went 37 hours on my last charge with 11 hours of use.

    This.

    Don’t even get me started with the linked article. It’s poorly written and short-sighted, even for Mashable. “When is the last time your iPhone 7 actually lagged or couldn't complete a task because the processor was too slow?” That’s like asking why I should upgrade my Nintendo 64 even though it’s not lagging while I’m playing Mario Kart. Furthermore, AR apps and portrait mode turn my 7 Plus into a miniature space heater because it’s pinging the processor so hard. I’m not saying the iPhone 8 is a worthy upgrade for everyone. I’m just saying that it shouldn’t automatically be written off as a worthy upgrade for the right users.
    I’ve been playing Gordon Ramsey Dash and Sim City Buildit and it’s making my 7 Plus get hot near the camera when it’s in the case. When I take it out of the case the whole top feels hot. These are not very intense games. Am I having a problem? I bought 6 Plus, 6s Plus, and now I have the 7 plus. There was nothing wrong with the 6 and 6s when I upgraded. Could it be that since I’m waiting for the 2018 model my 7 Plus is deciding to break on me so I’ll buy the 8?

    Doubtful. Neither your iPhone 7 Plus or Apple are quite that cynical.

    I know about Apple, but could my 7 Plus be getting jealous because the 6 & 6s were upgraded right away and it’s not?

    I have to say, just the pictures alone are making me happy I got the 8+. Gorgeous. And the battery life is insane.

    I would upgrade for the A11 and camera. I’m impressed so far.

    For me the 8 an 8 plus is not worthy for my use/wants. Very happy with my 7 plus but the IP10 on the other hand has me anticipating getting hands on an seeing if I like it in person. If I do upgrade this year that’s the one for sure.

    If you wait to do "hands on" the iPhone X, you won't be using an upgrade on it "this" year -- though hopefully in the first quarter of 2018.

    Your absolutely right but worth it. I hope to take a test drive in a store an make my decision then I believe that phone will be a collectors item one day even in that aspect worth it. But I will use it what’s the point of having such a great piece of hardware just to keep in boxed up.

    I would pre order it and if you don’t like it than return it. If you wait for hands on than order it you might be looking at Jan or Feb of 2018 or maybe later.

    I agree with it. The phone looks like a 2014 model, and it’s probably the tiniest iPhone refresh we’ve ever seen - especially the 8 Plus.

    I’m not sure who these phones are made for. They are not worth the premium over the 7 or 7 Plus.

    Yep!
    My plan is to get the X from third party sellers if I can’t get it during preorder night.

    I think for someone like my buddy who is clinging to his iPhone 6 (and his first iPhone/smartphone) with a tight death grip, he might notice a huge difference in performance. His 6 is slowing down quite a bit when I tried it.

    But as for me, my iPhone 7 that I have had for 6 months now has been fast and perfect, still sticking with iOS 10.3.3.

    Yes. From a 6. I stated that in another thread with a related topic.

    But we have a 6 Plus in the house here and it’s working just fine, not getting upgraded.

    I think it’s a personal choice. For instance, if they came out with a new color and that was the only reason you wanted it and can afford it, is it worth it? It is to that person. Yet a new color alone is not, for most people, worth the upgrade.
    We all make personal decisions based on likes, needs, or aesthetics. Also Apple brings, something perceived but not talked about all the time, the personal connection that draws people into supporting what they make. It’s extremely interesting.
    This! I'm most likely going to be getting the 8+ for Christmas! Last year, I chose an iPad Air 2 via the most recent iPad Pro because of cost, and what I needed it for. It's all a matter of choice and personal preference, and each person's decision shouldn't matter to anyone else!
