    I posted a similar poll three months ago - now we are getting pretty close to iPhone releases. I feel that buzz around features and upgrades with the 2019 iPhones is limited compared to last year. The iPhone X + seems to be in demand, but I'm not seeing a ton of organic demand for the other two models.

    As an iPhone 8+ owner, I've seen more OLED iPhone X screens in the wild and now want to upgrade to the OLED screen. I'm hoping the 2019 X/X+ are $100 less expensive than the comparable prices last year. I'm undecided about X or X+; a lot of the decision will revolve around battery life. The LCD phone would have interested me if it had the dual camera setup.

    Obviously, replace "2019" with "2018" for all of the poll questions

    I have no plans until I see these new devices and what they offer.

    Keeping the X. I upgraded from the 6+ back in December and couldn't be happier as it was very different in design, features, speed, battery etc.

    I don't see the point of upgrading from the X to the X+ or whatever they call it. The slight screen size change won't be worth it to me.

    I've never had a Plus, but depending on exactly how big it turns out to be, I'm strongly considering an X Plus this year.

    It all depends on what come out. Every year I upgrade even when I say I’m not. I have the X and I have been very happy with it. Coming from the 7+ which I kept, I’m used more to the size of the X.

    Only upgrade to XI plus if the storage is increased to 512gb. Otherwise, happy with the X.

    I might upgrade for significantly better reception as I've read the rumor that the next iPhones will get 4x4 MIMO. I had a Note 8 which had it and there was a big difference in areas without a strong signal.

    With today's prices, I treat my phones as I do my vehicles. Keep them well maintained and run them until they are no longer fit for purpose to maximize the return on investment. A phone is first and foremost a functional tool, not a fashion statement.

    That said, I just upgraded from the 6 to the 8+ (Red) on Sunday. I could have fixed my 6 screen and waited until the new phones came out, but the cost of repair would probably have exceeded the savings from waiting. Besides, I like the 6/7/8 form factor which appears to be ending with the 8 and wanted to get the latest model in that line with plans for keeping it in service for two to three years.

    Definitely anticipating the new LCD model. I would love to be pleasantly surprised by T-Mobile to get a good trade offer up to the 2018 X, but looking to go for LCD model to save $.

    I’ve gone past those days when I used to get excited about smartphones. I’m on the upgrade program, so will probably upgrade regardless of what they release.

    I will get a new $29 battery for my 7 and keep it another year. I feel smartphones have seriously plateaued in the last few years even as prices have risen. So you pay more than ever for an upgrade that’s smaller than ever. Which means I’ll keep existing devices longer than ever.

    This is the route I'm most likely going to take. I doubt the new X models will drastically differ from the current model. Thus, I'm probably going to keep my X for another year.

    I anticipate Apple will release a phone (or phones) that will remain aesthetically similar (camera bump) to current and past models.

    So…our plans (my wife and I) are to wait until some money we are expecting comes in at the end of July. I anticipate purchasing Google Pixel phones outright.

    My 6s+ and my wife's 6s will move down to secondary phones. How that's going to affect my iPhone 5 and my 4s I have yet to determine. Those two phones are currently my secondary and tertiary phones.

    My son has an SE so he will stay with that and my daughter is using my wife's old iPhone 5 (WiFi only).

    Currently carrying around a 6th Gen iPad as well. Will be updating that to iOS 12 if the 11.3.1 jailbreak is confirmed to still be semi-untethered.

    But for primary phones now we'll be Android.

    I just bought the X and I'll be running it for about two years. I just received an iPhone 8 for a work phone and I'll be running that one till it breaks.

    It depends on what will be released - I would like something in 5s to 8 size to replace my reliable 5s.

    Just upgraded to a X a few weeks back. No idea what I will do as I have been changing phones a lot recently. Back and forth between iOS and Android.

    The X is a super device though and I’d like to think I will keep it for 2 years. I went with the 256GB model.

    No reason to get rid of the X, so i'll keep it.

    I have a 6s Plus. I usually only keep my phones for 1.5 to 2 years.... I've been content with this phone longer than anything I can recall. I've had it over two years. I was disappointed with what the X ended up being, so I'm keeping my eye on the rumored X plus or whatever it ends up being called. If it fails to satisfy what I'm hoping it will be, I may go back to Android. Meh... I'd rather not do that though, but I do miss a beautiful OLED screen.

    Before we can say we want it or not
    1. Let’s see what the new features are
    2. Will the Tariffs raise the new iPhone
    25% or so
    3. Is the camera better or the same

    No hard decision just yet. As the usual leakers are not saying much

    I Think its obvious and the best judgment is for those that know Apple holds an annual Keynote in September, the consumer waits to see what they have to offer based on: 1.)Is Whats Offered compelling enough to want to upgrade from their current device to a new device, 2.) At what price.

    Those are usually the key things that most consider when upgrading their phone.
