X

Looking at the iPhone X. If I can get a good price on my iPhone 7 Plus, I'll probably get the X. The camera features look nice.

X is really cool, but that price

Time for me to upgrade my 6, but only going to 8

Techie but $1,000 phone is nuts

I really would have liked the X but come on, $1,000?? That's nuts and at the end of the day, a slightly bigger screen and facial recognition.... whoopee do. The 8 Plus will do just fine. Hoping to trade in my 7 Plus with AT&T and it be close to a "wash" in price.

Maybe Next Year

I just bought an iPhone 7+ a couple of months ago so I'm good for awhile. I usually stay one step behind the current models to save some $$.

I agree about the high $1000 price on the X. I don't know where the kids today get the money for these things but they all seem to have the latest & greatest.

That's not expensive at all. For your info, Nokia Communicator (popular in Asia) price tag was more than $1000 back in the late 90s/early 2000. Now that was crazy expensive 17+ years ago.

And Cheating Lovers need to be careful

I can see it now with the Face Recognition, Phone is locked, Lover picks up the locked phone of the person that is sleeping, Scans the face, opens the phone and reads all there texts and phone numbers. Bang go the gun!!

LOL

It isn't as easy as you think. The facial scan will only work if the person is looking at the device but if lover is sleeping it will not work. It will work if you trick your lover by asking a question, hold up their phone closer to them, and it will automatically unlocks once lover glance up to see what's up. All you gotta say after that is thank you. *Looks through phone* lol

Definitely changing the game lover can access the phone now.

Wife has 6, and provider

Wife has 6, and provider says we can upgrade hers, and retire my old flip and they'll port her 6 data to new one (don't know which model) and my flip data to her old 6..... and configure both calendars such that either of us make a change, both will see it..

We were eligible for that in May, but just never got around to it....

2689LMT That we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

I personally would not

I personally would not purchase an iPhone in general. I enjoy my Android phone and still have my OnePlus One kicking strong.

Just got first "Smart Phone" type TracFone a few months ago

Because new water heater has features that require "Smart Phone" to set up. Cost $39 to buy and $129 per year, has been on about 5 times since setting up Water Heater. We look, wife and I, at people hooked/engrossed with their Smart Phones and laugh. Think about it, if that is the most important item in ones life, what kind of life do they have?

iphone 6

My iPhone 6 got hack. It is locked. I did not put a pass code or finger print. Waiting for Apple to unlock it, but will be at the end of Sept before they can do it. They are doing a restore.

Currently, I have iphone 6+ and it is getting slow now. It fell in the train and cracked the screen. Replaced the screen but now touch ID does not work. So lost Apple Pay functionality as well. Now I may buy iphone 8. I am not fan of Iphone X.

I Will Not Get a New iPhone At This Time.

From 2007 until about 2011, I got a new iPhone every year at work. I did not necessarily want a new one, but when work buys it and gives it to you, you use it.

Between about 2008 and 2015, I've used the three main OS's daily, again at work.

Windows Mobile, then Windows Phone; Android, and iOS...

I have found that the features a phone has do not disappear the day a new phone comes out - the current phone doesn't stop working. At least they never have for me. I have worked with some people that have their eyes glaze over every time a new Android or iPhone is announced and they simply must have it. That's fine for them.

For me, I use my work provided iPhone 6 only for work. I use my personal Windows Phone for most everything else, and I keep my now old iPhone 4 as an "ipod touch" device - still works just fine for what I use it for.

Edit: Oh - for the $1,000 price tag; don't forget that that is for the one with less memory. Add another $150 if you want more memory.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

X

I may choose not to upgrade but if I do, X.

7

I'll stay with the 7+ until the next new iPhone. iPhone XI or Xs ?

Copy-cat?

Hum.. Strange why did Iphone from 8 jump to X

Sound like Microsoft From window 8 to 10
