I am struggling on what iPhone I should get when I upgrade. Just want to be prepared. I don't want an Android phone.

The top end OLED iPhone X Plus. Don't get the LCD model as Apple's going to gimp it hard.
I’m actually looking forward to their LCD model. If they bump the resolution up to 1080 or higher I’m probably going with that model. Not interested in playing the OLED lottery or paying another high price for a phone.

Considering no one knows what is even coming then how can we answer this? If you plan to buy a phone that is already out then I say 8+.

Well considering I’ve bought a ton of OLED phones I never had to play the lottery. If anything I’ve have always played the lotto with iPhones and iPads. That being said it will be 1080p because the current iPhone plus phones have been 1080p . Using a lower res phone in bigger screens is bad but with the 4.7 iPhone the 720+ res isn’t bad because of the size and the fact it’s an phone. I used FHD+ on my note 8 instead of QHD+ because of battery life and never really noticed a difference

It needs to be an iPhone 7 or lower. It's gonna be on a contract too.

Well then the thread should be 7 versus 6s. In that case I say 7 UNLESS you need a headphone jack. If you need the jack then it’s 6s. Don’t get a 6 in order to save a few bucks. 6s and 7 both have 2gb of ram, while the 6 only has 1gb. Seriously, don’t do it to yourself and buy a 6 to save money. It’s damn near obsolete in 2018.

I was not planning to get a 6. I was aiming towards 6s, SE and 7, maybe SE 2?? I know it's definitely going to be an iPhone. Keeping an eye on the monthly fee for an iPhone 7 contract ATM but I am also chcking things like 6s which will likely fall into my price range before the iphone 7 but still worth trying to get a 7. I can't do the iPhone 8, 8+ or X although I'd happily take in an X any day.

The iPhone 6 has 6000 series Aluminium (Typical Brit lol) which is making it bend but HMD used 6000 series aluminium but their phones are not bending as easily as the original 6 so how did Apple get BendGate and not HMD Global?

I think Apple didn't use that material correctly or maybe HMD Global was quite lucky.

The difference between the 6s and 7 price wise is not much. Just save up the extra money to get the 7. The a10 is a very nice chip, and the 7 has a bunch of other upgrades over the 6s. The difference is even smaller since you will be paying it off over 24 months. How much can the difference be per month? I’d assume $5 or $10 extra per month, but I’ve never priced these phones out.

Too bad you can’t buy a used but mint 7 on swappa for a great price.

I am getting it on contract hopefully for one, it costs £19.99 a month at the moment. TBH I think the 6S will either get to £15.99 first or the 6S will get discontinued and the iPhone 7 price goes down again to £15.99. I want an iPhone 7 and I don't like headphones so am proud the headphone jack was removed in the first place SORRY FOLKS THAT LOVE THE JACK.
[doublepost=1527965772][/doublepost]I do have my eyes set on AN iPhone.
