    I couldn’t resist. I just picked up my product red 8 plus from ups this morning. It’s much more stunning in person than the pictures do it justice.

    Went to the park today with my DSLR and took some more glamour shots of the RED iPhone 8 (256GB). It's such a nice color in the sun. Anyone on the fence about the color, definitely just do it.

    Usually every 3rd or so S/Note release I fall back to Android, realize they don’t meet my needs and spend too much time fiddling with em rather than using them lol.

    The whole package can show up on your door with the low reserve set on PayPal.

    Yeah thats my gripe with the X, not sure i could do a plus again though.

    Surely the 8 plus is better? Might take a few more days.

    Yeah the 8 plus is definitely a bigger device. Albeit feels more “balanced” in hand than the X, to me ‍♂️ Apple needs to integrate swipe functions from X into all devices, including home button devices.

    Yeah, battery life may be better but hard to honestly gauge. If I’m driving I’m plugged in. About to hit the sack and been on and off charger all day and at 46% battery.

    I would only consider the Product Red if it were available in the X and at launch. If I already had the model I wanted, I wouldn't buy it again for another color.

    I guess there is no iPhone X in Product Red because the profit margin on the X isn't big enough to give some of it to charity./s

    Since I bought a new iPhone 8+ just a month or so ago, I really couldn't justify getting the red version of this phone now. I probably will spend the $$ on a new laptop.

    But other than that, I think the new Product Red version of the phone is near perfect. I like the red with the black front. Only thing I might have added would be the red color circling around the Home Button. Other than that, I think it really looks fantastic.

    If I didn’t already have the 8 plus space grey, then I’ve would’ve gotten the product red. It’s beautiful!

    I've never liked any phone color other than black or grey / silver. I don't know why, but I am obsessed with the product RED iPhone 8. I am going to Apple after work to check it out in person. I may trade in my X on the spot depending on the value and get a red iPhone 8. The 8 can do everything for me that the X can do. Quite honestly I won't miss Face ID even though I have zero problem with it. Chances are this will be the very last "classic" iPhone made, and the red color w/ black front is just perfect.

    The Product Red iPhone is a great color for the midcycle iPhone and for consumers who have not upgraded yet, it’s a great way for the attraction to at least draw consumers into the store to see it, even if they don’t purchase the Product Red iPhone, they have other options to look at.

    For sure-very smart from a marketing standpoint. And what better color than crimson red to grab your attention? Very pretty phone...even the box is fun to stare at.

    Same here on releasing at release date of the new iPhones, if Apple would release the PRODUCT RED at launch I'd buy one if I was upgrading, still on my 7+, waiting to see what Apple does in September, but it's annoying when they release a new color(now Red) 6 months into the 8/8+'s cycle.

    Love it. Touch ID, welcome back old friend. I never have any problems with Face ID. But after using it for awhile and now trying Touch ID again, it is superior (for me). Really missed the 7 / 8 form factor as well and have my 10 up for sale. Nothing like wasting time at work setting up a new iPhone!

    I didn’t. Because rampant consumerism is cause of this large trade deficit between the USA and China.


    Apple needs to sell this on launch day or something. Early adopters would love this.

    It’s time for my annual upgrade. I have the red iPhone 7+. I love the red phone ,but can’t decide whether I want the red 8+ or the X.

    The new Red is beautiful, but so is the X. If the X had been Red too, it would be an easy decision.

    Probably to keep the revenue flowing by releasing that new color way or even for the people that are waiting for it.

    You put the X up for sale?
    Guess the new design isnt what it is cracked up to be....

    --> Anyhow is read even a masculain color for a phone?

    Sure looks nice, but offering it close to the release of the next iteration makes it an impossible buy for me.

    I wonder what held them back offering it right away when it came out, that's whan I buy phones. Not midway through the product cycle. *shrugs*

    I need a new phone ASAP so might get the space grey

    I’m enjoying it. My 7+ worked, but battery did no last all day and phone reception was not good.

    My Red 8+ is at 60% at the end of the day and I have yet to see “No Service “. Very happy. Did I say I like touch ID and the phone is SIM FREE?
