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.
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.So if the iphone 8 is all glass i may skip unless its drastically better than the 7
The virtual home button area subtracts a large area of the usable screen real estate. The + model will/would still have a larger usable screenI'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.
[doublepost=1500134576][/doublepost]I made a poll for this question:
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.I don't see how anyone can make an informed decision on which one to buy when neither has even been unveiled.
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'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.
