    Hi! So, call me impatient or silly but I am looking to purchase an iPhone 8 Plus this week to tie me over until the iPhone X comes out which will be my permanent phone. I'm currently on android and looking to make the switch (have had iPhones previously). I want to know which iPhone 8 Plus would have the best resell value after the iPhone X comes out? I am completely fine taking some loss (and expect to) but, want to minimize that as much as I can. Thanks!

    Okay, thanks! Should I buy the carrier free version or the Verizon (my carrier) one?

    A carrier free one would definitely interest a lot more people.

    Gold 64GB.

    The gold will encourage female buyers.

    The higher storage options don't seem to hold their value, especially with the base model now being 64GB.

    Definitely lower storage. Color is more of a crap shoot.

    i can't speak for everyone but i've never bought a cheaper storage iphone. from my understanding, the cheaper storage sells out more and the higher storage premiums resells to a few hardcore fans. I tend to be lucky selling the latter. but yea, my input, 64 space gray.
