    I apologize for starting a thread this early, but since I am bypassing the Iphone 7, I have started to think about the Iphone 8. ( guessing the name; it is a lucky number in China ). And I am worried that Apple will bring OLED only to the larger size phone and not the smaller one. If Apple continues with a low resolution screen in the smaller version, it would be a travesty. Apple must shrink the size of the 5.5 inch phone. Something has to give. If you want a large screen that is super thin, you have to design it better. The Galaxy S7 Edge is noticeably smaller than the Iphone 7 plus and is just as thin, has IP68, great battery life, Quad HD Super Amoled screen, Micro SD, wireless charging, and a headphone jack. They use a conformal battery setup. The Apple plus size is just too big for a lot of people. The Iphone 7 and plus are nice phones, but they are not keeping up with a slew of Android phones. Thin seems to rule at Apple. Too bad the current phones are paying the price for thinness.

    Why even bother mentioning the S7 having a headphone jack? Apple won't bring it back.

    I personally think both of next years models will have a smaller footprint, and improved screen technology(AMOLED?). Hence why i'm waiting.
