    So i have an iphone 7 plus 128gb paid off (T-Mobile)

    Okay guys, so i want the iPhone X. I work at T-Mobile and i know for a fact that when i see the iphone 8 plus in person at my store on launch day im gonna wanna buy it because thats the type of person I am. The reason i think like this is because i feel like my 7 plus trade in value is gonna be trash by the time the X finally shows up. I know if i buy the 8 plus ill end up wanting to trade it in for the X but I don't have JOD and thats not an option for me......

    IS it really worth it....... is the 8 Plus worth it.......

    or hold on to my 7 plus till the X comes out and lose value...,.

    Hold on to your 7 plus and wait until next year.

    The value on the 7+ 128 is gonna stay high for another year since the folks at apple wanted to castrate more money from people, only 64gb and 256gb models this year and if anything the prices will not drop for the 128gb model for at least another year.

    Where the hell you getting those values?
    Look at Swappa and eBay for true values and not carrier websites!
    The 7+ 128 is about $650-$700+ depending on condition and size.

    Why would you want to trade it in with T-Mobile or any other retailer offering trade-ins or guaranteed phone buys? They will offer less than market value for your phone to make a profit. It's the price you pay for the convenience of someone guaranteeing to buy your phone. If the monetary value of your phone is important to you, go through the effort of putting your phone up for sale privately on eBay/Craigslist etc. T-Mobile are clearly ripping customers off offering only $252 for your phone.

    It sounds like you know you want the X more than the 8 plus, so you should probably wait until you can get the X. Pretty much all the 8 plus can do over the 7 plus is wireless charging, faster charging and of course the usual spec upgrades. The A11 bionic does seem really nice though.

    If you can afford it and your perceived value of going from 7 plus to 8 plus to the X is worth it to you, then who am I to tell you otherwise?

    Just felt like it would be a for sure sell as opposed to dealing with stupid offers.

    Is there anything your 7+ can't do that the new 8 and X can do for you? I personally don't think it is worth it for 7/7+ owners to upgrade to 8/X. But if you want to upgrade just for the sake of wanting the latest model, then that's your own problem to decide, no one can help you here.

    this is just my opinion - wait for the X. i know it will be Very tempting to get an 8+, but if you really, really want the X, i'd wait

    i'm disappointed that we have to wait too. i kinda like the new gold 8 color, but i'm going to wait on the X. i'm on the IUP though

    it sucks that you work at T mo, because of temptation. hope you have the will power to wait lol. plus it looks like switching like that will be pretty Xpensive

    just my humble opinion .

    Apple shareholders love people like you, they are sitting there rubbing their hands eagerly waiting for you to hand over your money :p
