    I'm wondering how much people would buy the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 7S. I would think that the iPhone 8 would become one of Apple's best sellers in the upcoming year.

    No point voting till we know exactly what the 7s and the mystery phone have and don't have. And the prices.

    I think the iPhone 8 will be to expensive for most "I know i won't pay nearly £1000 for a phone" as it rumoured to start at 128GB, I personally think the 7S Plus will have all the features of the 8 minus the OLED bezel-less screen and embedded screen touch id sensor if it's not on the back that is.

    Another of so many speculation threads. No idea of even the name(s)... 7s, 8, ??

    And a million rumors of what it will be. Decision will probably be difficult even when the facts are out.

    I'd suspect this poll would be around 70/30 (iPhone 8)

    Too early to tell, it depends on how different the features are and the price difference.

    I don't see how anyone can make an informed decision on which one to buy when neither has even been unveiled.

    Both will be equipped with the same A11 processor . So whatever . If I upgrade, I will certainly get the 7S+ red. It will be cheaper too.

    I will get the iPhone 8, since I already have the 7 Plus the 8 will probably offer more in terms of a redesign, OLED screen and so on, I have no problem with paying the rumoured £1000 for the iPhone 8 redesign, wireless charging, better water resistance (IP68 is rumoured) OLED screen and so on.

    Right now I plan to stay with the 7+. Don't want to start getting into annual flagship upgrades. I've alternated through the years.

    All depends on what is revealed at the Apple keynote when the devices are announced. As of today, I would be leaning more toward the 7s Plus.

    Gotta go iPhone 8 because the 7/7+ were pretty much stopgap devices, enough of an upgrade to warrant people on 6/6+ or older devices to switch. They could get the average Joe who gets iPhones yearly and IUP purchasers to get the 7 or 7+ too, but think about it:

    The iPhone OLED (X or whatever it's called) will feature the A11 processor, extended biometrics, fast charging, wireless charging, a new FP sensor (regardless of location), better dual cameras, more efficient battery life, special iOS 11 features we don't know about for obvious reasons, a more impressive screen resolution, a better front facing camera, strong cellular radios (maybe Gigabit speeds), improved water resistance, better front facing speakers, possibly more RAM at 4GB, smaller bezels, and probably Apple's best effort in years.

    The iPhone 7+ is a decent phone if it's not an Intel model.

    The price of the Iphone 8 will be too high for sure. But in 2018 I will be here to try it. :)

    Most Apple, Samsung, HTC, LG, and Sony flagship phones are inevitability expensive these days. The best part, at least in the US, is that you can get trade in deals, subsidies, and promotions to cut down on the pricing. Black Friday is a great day for T-Mobile users because they had a deal last year where you trade in a S7, iPhone 6s, or other phones to get a "free" iPhone 7 via bill credits under a 2 year installment plan (essentially a contract) while just being on the hook for taxes.

    right now i have the iphone 7 and the samung s8...i like both but one thing i worry about is an all glass phone as ive seen people breaking them even with a case. So if the iphone 8 is all glass i may skip unless its drastically better than the 7

    If the redesign is glass, the main models will follow suit in 2018 (at the latest)...ie. we will see that design for a couple of years. Better get used to it.

    The metal shell is fine for me...I'm not interested in wireless charging anyway.

    I think there is a possibility that the recent leaks about TouchID on the back could be for the 7s/7s+. Then the virtual home button tech that will be implemented with the OLED phone can also be applied to the 7s, enabling a smaller body height with the same 4.7 and 5.5" screens (reduced bezels on top and bottom). I think they will actually be called the 8 and 8+ due to this design change. The third OLED screen phone will then be called the Edition or 8 Pro, and will be differentiated less by the screen bezels (although the OLED design will have even less bezel) and more by embedded TouchID, AR/3D camera & ambient authentication technology, or possibly true wireless charging. The edition will also make use of a new material, either liquid metal, ceramic, or both (frame and backplate).

    I'll be shocked if there is actually a 7S. Back when the 4S came out there were rumors they would release a 4S and a 5 at the same time but they only ended up only releasing the 4S that year. I can't see why they would introduce a 7S and an 8 at the same time. The 8 has the big screen in a small form factor, so it covers the needs for people who would want a 7S or 7S+. People who want a cheaper phone will buy the discounted 7/7+ and people who want the exciting new phone will buy the 8.

    The virtual home button area subtracts a large area of the usable screen real estate. The + model will/would still have a larger usable screen

    Some people know they’re going to buy 8 because it is the best and they want 5(3 best regardless of price. Or delay in manufacturing.
    --- Post Merged, Jul 17, 2017 ---
    Assuming 7S and 8 are both released, 7S will outsell 8, as 8 sales quantities will be limited by production issues, not price. News articles about delays for the 8 are even in the main stream media, not just Apple news sites.

    I'd have to wait for the final specs but largely it will come down to a combination of the size differences between the iPhone 8 and 7S and availability.

    The problem is I need an iPhone soon as my 6 is on it's last legs.

    Price is also a factor. I'm not hurting for money by any means but the idea of spending over $1000 for a phone is a bit much.
