So, who is going to be picking up an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus?

  • Mike M. Powell

    Depending on how my carrier (Sprint) does the upgrade this year. The 8+ Or just wait a bit

  • Jay

    Apple went crazy on the price hikes..

    • Zencowboy007

      I paid $949 for the 6s+ 128Gb and is same price for the 8+ 256GB now.

  • Jordan Smith

    How many people are going to get the 8 or 8 Plus instead of waiting for the X?
    I am personally going to wait for the X, but I’m curious!

    • Steve Harold

      I’m gonna go for the 8 Plus cause I want a big screen, but want Touch ID. I don’t like Face ID. Also, not much spec differences besides display and face sensors between 8 and X. Same processor, same camera, same most everything.

      • Jordan Smith

        This is a great point Steve!

      • Mike M. Powell

        Was really hoping the rumor bout Touch ID on the Apple icon to be true. Hope the next installment has it. Because eventually I’m the near future we’re all gonna have the X (whatever they call it in a couple years).

  • David Gow

    I am going to wait for the x.

  • Sailor_V90

    I wish they would have kept the 128GB option…

  • Woz A Nater

    This year I am not supporting companies supported by globalist American hating liberals. Screw iPhone X.

    • AlphaPoppy

      Trump and his supporters are the true haters.

      lol “companies supported by globalist American hating liberals” — so if a liberal buys a piece of fruit from your neighborhood grocery store, you’re not shopping there anymore? lol come on

  • RobDigital413

    The iPhone X is really not that impressive I’m sorta shocked. Thought Apple would go all out….I’m going to wait for the spring to see if there is a OLED(s) or 8s

  • M_Hawke

    I’ll just stick with my 7+. It’s a fine phone and does plenty.

  • It’ll will probably be like the iPhone 5c/5s launch.
    5c was phased out quickly, with the 5s gaining traction. The 8 and 8 Plus maybe phased out earlier than the X.

  • Fefefefe

    Can I buy it at the pre-sale and pick it up at the store? Is iPhone reserved for me?
