    I dont like X series, and have to buy new iPhone. Been thinking aboutio 8 plus but ip 7 plus is much cheaper... so, what do you think, will 7 plus be ok for at least 2 years?

    If you’re looking for 2 years then yeah, but it really depends on your budget. Whatever works.

    Look, i do think that wireless charging is nice to have and i would really like true to e and hdr display BUT i need at least 128GB so i would have to buy 256 8plus so pri e sifferwnce would be 300USD (where I live) - not worth if 7 plus will be fine for 2 more years... and I dont feel comfortable paying too much for old models.
    Thats my reasoning for now;)

    Yeah, it would hold up for two years. I'd suggest keeping it in the iOS version it comes with. If you do so, I can assure you it would last for the two years you intend it to, without issues.

    I just bought a 7 a few months ago and updated it to current iOS. It works great--does everything I need it to do way cheaper than a Xs or Xr even... I expect it will last at least 2 or 3 years--and by then the Xs will probably be selling for $500.

    I'd pony up for the 8. It'll last longer. Probably worth getting Apple Care if it's available, too.

    No one can answer that question. The A10 fusion processor is still relevant, but to what extent and how will perform on iOS 13 or later? There are so many variables here, the only way of knowing is once that version of iOS is available to experience it firsthand.

    I've just picked up an brand new iPhone 7 32GB couple of days ago to replace my SE, cost me £404 with the Wife discount.

    To me this is a decent upgrade over the SE while not costing the earth & still remaining relatively compact, I don't need alot of storage I'm still left with over 17GB after installing the few apps i use & have 50GB of iCloud storage for photo's ect.

    I still think the A10 good for another couple of years at least so iOS 13 & possibly 14 will run just fine on it as long as 2GB phones remain on the market which the iPhone 8 will take the iPhone 7 place after September this year..

    I'll pick the XR next once that been on the market for couple of years probably around the price i just bought the iPhone 7 for.

    All of you will be in for a shock when iOS 13 is released. Expect your battery life to be reduced by 2 hrs with a fresh battery (which you won’t get). And I wouldn’t be surprised if anything older than an iPhone 8 is slowed down badly so people are forced to upgrade.

    iOS 13 will likely be the worst optimised iOS in history to force people to upgrade. Don’t ask for proof, those who are smart enough know this already. Those who aren’t smart enough won’t understand this until their older phones are rendered useless.

    I could be wrong. But I doubt it after this quarter’s results.

    Don't ask for proof...but you could be wrong. So basically really nothing one way or another.

    Yes. Possible. But very unlikely. Tim Cook has given all the hints we need. He wants people to upgrade.

    Every company with basically any product wants people to upgrade. It doesn't mean some sort of nefarious conspiracy would be in play in relation to it all just because of that.

    I have had the 'normal' iPhone 7 since launch day in 2016. I still feel absolutely no reason to upgrade. In fact, it is far more phone than I actually need, but everybody's usage is different. It works. Works perfect. Still looks brand new. Kudos to Apple for that, but I have never felt the need for anything more.

    I do wish it were actually smaller. If Apple made an "iPhone Nano" so to speak, I would probably buy that.

    here you go again!

    The earth is flat. Don’t ask for proof, smart people already know it!

    Exactly!

    Why? They’ve already said it’s significantly more expensive, and frankly it’s exactly the same

    Exactly the same? Don’t think so look at the spec sheet they clearly aren’t.

    They are to all intents and purposes

    My point still stands. The 8 offers no noticeable upgrade over the 7. Either get the 7 or XR/XS. Literally no point in the 8

    Im using the 7 Plus for more than 2 years now and will use it for at least another 2 years. Its just a really good phone and the performance is as good as in the first days.

    I would recommend the 7 over the 8 in your case.
