I have an 8+. Coming into the keynote, I was very skeptical of the XR and was eying an XS Max. However, after announcement, the idea of a smaller phone (relative to the 8+) with more battery is appealing. I may miss the dual camera system though. Also, I feel like the XS line will have a more substantial update next year. I may go for that Xr.

I want to get an Xs. Mainly because I want to play Galaga and the Camera. But I'm not sure if it is worth trading my smaller 8.

Going to the XR, XS (very unlikely), or the X. T-Mobile is damn insulting with their trade in offer.

8+ here and highly considering the Xr... but on the fence about the Xs. Will see how much I have to put down for the Xs with tmobile come Friday.

I recently switched from AT&T to Verizon, so I had to let my AT&T X go and get a Verizon 8 Plus as sort of a placeholder until the new iPhones were out. I'm going with the gold 256GB XS Max.

I’m eyeing the XS Max 256GB.

Last year I went for the 8+ instead of X cuz I had doubts over Face ID.. well the tech has proven itself and it’s time to move on from the Touch ID. My 8+ is in mint condition so I can probably get good money for giving it back..

I’m probably staying with my 8 plus. Over the last year or 2, i’ve Realized that most of the things I use my iPhone for don’t need half the power provided. Probably going to stay with my 8 plus for a while. And Face ID is horrible when compared to Touch ID. I sold my X a few months back as it just felt like way more work than the simplicity of the Touch ID. Can’t remember a time when I was so behind on Apple tech. Have had every phone on day 1 until the X went back.

Will be getting the watch though. Probably a better value with all the features provided.

I have changed my mind after seeing the keynote. Will be using my upgrade to go from8+~>Xs Max. I’m sold and willing to drop Touch ID for Face ID. Cameras are exactly what I want as is everything else.

Same here. Was 100% going to upgrade to XSM before today. At these prices I just can’t justify it.
[doublepost=1536788965][/doublepost]Props to Apple for being able to get people to spend $1,300+ on a smartphone. Printing $$$.

I’m upgrading from the 8+ 256 to the Max 512 on IUP. Can’t wait to see that giant screen!

Keeping my 8 Plus unless reviews of the new camera are phenomenal. If the camera is a huge improvement I might be persuaded to get the Max. Otherwise I will stick with the 8 Plus.

Hanging on to my 8+.

Surprised to see some votes for Xr - it's a downgrade in terms of camera, display and 3D touch - and apart from the design I don't see what one is getting in return. Am I missing something?
