    The long wait for X had me looking at the used 7+ market in my area. Found a Verizon model A1661 Product Red 7+ 128 G for $500, in excellent condition. Owners getting an 8+ this Friday. Should I jump on it? My 6S+ battery is dying, the potential availability and first year glitches of the X scare me a bit, a cheap 7+ for now then jump to the 2nd year X would not be a bad idea. What do you guys think?

    Yes I would. 7 Plus is still an awesome device. Fast and great camera. And the Product Red was discontinued so you can’t get it from Apple anymore.

    I would just pay to have the battery replaced.

    Wouldn't buy the ip7 or the ip8.

    Either this or if you really want a new phone then just buy it. I’m looking for one as well. I’m on 6 at the moment.

    Absolutely it is. I know some think it's not much of an upgrade from the 6S, but with the stereo speakers, dual camera and excellent battery life with a 7+, those features alone are worth it for me.

    I actually think the upgrade from the 6S Plus to the 7 Plus is quite substantial. If you really want to upgrade now I would say do it. Can’t go wrong for a red 7 Plus at $500.

    I would personally not spend more than $400 on any used smartphone. I'd rather buy a new one if I can. You're also buying a used phone and you don't know what the performance of that battery is. I would replace the 6S+ battery and save the $500 for next year's iPhone X.

    Could be potentially longer than 37 days depending on when you actually receive the iPhone X.
