There was an article on CNBC.com discussing whether people would be willing to pay 1k+ for the new iPhone. Generally people wouldn't. Everyone on average wants to pay 500-600 for an iPhone.

BUT as Mac enthusiasts and sometimes early adopters, would you pay 1k+ for the new iPhone?

I'm thinking that the all front touch screen, 128gb memory, and without accessories will be 1k. BUT the premium model with 256 gb memory and accessories (case) will put you at closer to 1,256.

Are you willing to pay that? I'm trying to budget and figure this question out myself. I did just buy the iPad Pro and am only using it as an iPad (but occasionally using it as a laptop'ish device).

Thoughts, feelings, emotions? What price would be too high? What price would make you buy one outright?

I'm thinking 1k puts it in the right spot for me on the 256gb memory and a case. But if its 1200 for a case and memory, I'm going to rethink it. I do want more than 128gb of memory. I currently have iPhone 6 at 64gb of memory and always out of space with music. :(

In the middle of several books.
Why are so many here hung up on whether or not others like a phone or will purchase a phone at x amount?

How about making a decision for yourself based on your own needs, wants, and financial ability? That makes a lot more sense than asking complete strangers (who have different needs, wants, preferences and financial ability) at what point they would purchase the new phone.

Yes, I paid £820 for my 7Plus 128GB. Considering that the upgrade is going to be big I don't paying out £1000 for it.

My purchases are based on the value I receive for the dollars spent. So no, not enough value received for $$$ spent. My 7 still has lots of mileage left in it. Maybe in another year, or not.

I think others ask not necessarily looking for guidance or direction specifically what they should purchase, but more so to see who else is willing to spend that type of money for a phone and or why someone would want to spend that type of money for what reaons.

Figuratively speaking, there are those will never pay that much for a phone no matter what technology Is incorporated and then there are those who will sacrifice money at no cost to have the latest device from Apple.

I had no problems with three excellent coverage here in Manchester.
To be honest no other network have unlimited data on 4G.
Each month I use around 90gb no problems all for £22.
