This year marks the first year ever I won't be upgrading to the new model. My iPhone 8 Plus is completely paid off, and Apple just replaced the screen for me yesterday with a brand new display. I factory reset my phone yesterday and put it in a brand new case. Almost feels like a new phone. I know the XS and XS Max are superior products, I just can't justify the cost of upgrading to them right now. Also in a way, I think the 8 Plus stands up to the XR in some aspects, such as having a true 1080 display which I mainly use for full HD video and such. I think next year I could make a case for whatever Apple releases, but for now this phone really is a workhorse and just does everything right. Plus, it feels kind of cool to have the last generation model of their 6/6+ design they released in 2014. Anyone else doing this?
