    Responding to nikkisharif, I'd like to say a good word for the iPhone 8, based mainly on it's physical appearance. To me, design is really important (which is why I bought a 5S with its gold chamfered frame in the first place). Recently, I got wrapped up in all the XS's tech upgrades, but today I went and looked at the them at Costco, and was really disappointed that the gold steel band does not make it up to the front of the screen. All I could see is the screen's black edge and the gold buttons barely peeking out (pic below). In comparison, the aluminum band on my gold iPhone 8 shows up beautifully, and it's enhanced by a clear case.

    Unless I'm missing something, I'm keeping my iPhone 8, and lovin' it once more.

    I totally agree with you about the gold showing. That would have been a nice touch! I’m still not sold on the XS because I don’t think it’s any better than my X, but time will tell. The only reason I got it was because the logic board in my 8 died and I was nervous it would happen again. Unfortunately, I was limited in options because all the other devices are larger, and I definitely didn’t want that.

    Edit: I just realized that you can see the gold, depending on the lighting. The thing to understand is the gold sides of the XS are much darker than the previous gold.
