    I've got my 8 plus pre ordered and picking up on Friday. I'm also on the apple upgrade scheme which I think is pretty good especially with the apple care plus included. I smashed mine up a few months into my contract and they replaced within a couple of days.

    Looking at the specs the 8 plus and X aren't too different and I didn't want to pay the extra £200 over the months. I'll let you know my thoughts after a few days of playing....(*praying emoji - please be good, please be good)

    I'd rather spend on new kit and stick. It's a silly amount with few difference between the 8 series.

    Taking away the finger print scanner for face detect is something Samsung did years ago. My s4 had face detect unlock.

    I have used iPhone for 4 months they are good phones but very thirsty on battery.

    You should see how quickly I can drain the battery on mine.

    I can drain mine in about an hour, I usually have to charge at least once during the day if not twice and then at night

    It's not I need to replace it it's had 3 years of abuse. My last android only managed 18 months and then the battery crapped out, and the one before that Google pulled support after 12 months when they launched the new phone (Google g1) so it's a hard jump back to android for me

    It depends on the use of the phone. If your phone is for snapchat, fb, Twitter and Instagram, I don't recommend to buy one. I work in digital marketing and as a financial advisor and I really love apple. I'll buy the new one, probably the 8 one. But I use the phone not only for enjoyment but also for analytics, the stock market, product design and meetings and have all my devices connected (pro, iPhone, iPad) and working together it's a really nice way to maximize time.

    As a coach in hockey, I used it for the junior leagues for recording and correct exercises and postures, record with the GoPro real time for matches and for the sub 18 (under 18 yo) to correct the postures and record individual skills in the girls. Create all my classes in the notebook or iPad and only use the phone on the court is really good and simple.

    I really like it, but in the end, it depends on budget and feels. Just like choosing a hockey stick.

    There are other options just like Samsung S8 in price and specifics. Or alternative REALLY GOOD ones in lower price like the XIAOMI mi6 (370 Euros) (http://www.mi.com/en/) this is the direct competition for Apple and Samsung in China. These cell phones are amazing and really cheap compared to previous ones.

    PS. In Argentina the iPhone 8 price tag it's U$D 1750 (D A M N!)

    Greetings! :D

    PS.2. If anyone wants the Los Leones t-shirt it's on sale now in my country. I can help you to get one! :D
