    Hello guys,

    After a threw months of saving up and selling my iPhone 7 plus I have got £1100 to spend on a new iPhone 8 when it's released, do you think this will be enough or will I need to sell my car.

    Thanks

    Not even close, sell your car and start selling your sperm and plasma everyday too. Better go NOW OP, this is your life until release day!

    You'll probably be good. Prices are speculation right now at best. Won't know until the presser.

    Erm, you'll probably want to conceive a child - as they'll require your first born - and provide a blood sacrifice most evenings.

    £899/£999 is my guess for 64gb and 256gb.

    Maybe keeping 32/128/256 for the old style phones.

    But honestly, who knows, lol.

    I'd go ahead and sell the car just to make sure you have enough to cover everything.

    As I always say, "I can call a ride (Uber) with my iPhone, but I can't make a call with my car!"

    You can drive a car, but you can't drive an iPhone :)

    Are these kind of stupid threads a common occurrence around an iPhone launch?

    I am guessing at £929 for 64 gb rising to £1099 for 256gb

    I agree. It makes me sad my new phone will cost as much as a "13 Apple Macbook Pro.

    Maybe, but the camera will be so good in it that you are paying for what you have in your pocket. You can either go Sony RX100 MKV or iPhone 8. One can make calls, take great images, text, browse the web, manage your business and life, or you can get a bigger sensor camera that's a similar size and carry that around with a pay as you go entry level phone... I think the features that a phone can pack now make the cost relative to the features.

    That's kind of the way I'm looking at it. I've been a photography enthusiast for many years and have carried various combinations of DSLR and m4/3 kits, as well as a few good quality compact P&S models. Never had one of the RX100 models, but have always admired them. My smallest options currently are my Olympus OM-D E-M5 with a 20mm f/1.7 pancake, and we also have an Olympus XZ-10 compact P&S that is quite good. I'm still on an iPhone 6, but will upgrade to either a 7 or 8. Either way the newer smartphone will probably render the XZ-10 compact superfluous. If the iPhone 8 camera is a significant enough upgrade, it will be worth it to me, because I do end up taking quite a few photos and videos with my iPhone. I've spent over $1,000 on individual lenses I don't use all that often, so I'm willing to spend that on a better smartphone camera that I will use every day.

    That's nothing new. There's been talk of high prices for a while now. We'll just have to wait and see.

    I'm still guessing that whatever these analysts are going by is the high-end price only (therefore assuming the next one down is $100 less, which could be wrong), which is stated be around 256 GB, and therefore more expensive anyway. We'll have to wait and see though.

    I have just seen that some reports are saying it may cost $1,400 for the entry level iphone 8, if the iPhone 8 does cost this much apple won't be getting my money, I'm going up to £1,100 and that's it so fingers crossed!

    So why start a thread asking if you'll need to sell your car to add to the £1100 if you have no intentions of spending more than that?
