    Well in my personal opinion, they can keep their $1000.00+ phone! I have a 6s+ and am very happy with it, and I'm out of contract next month which saves me $20.00 a month on the bill, also have a plain jane 6 which I can sell for a couple hundred.

    $999 for a phone ?

    Some people have more money than sense.

    That could be me except I think I'll probably stick with my 6SE until they make something better in a similar size or it breaks. I much prefer phones with a smaller size than what's currently on offer.

    did you guys look at the side by sides on Apple Site?
    The Apple X is about smaller than the 8+ ...??
    If Super Retina becomes ubiquitous... will they drop the 5.5 inch size (+) and just sell 4.7 and 5.8 next year or year after?
    :sneaky:

    Yea the X has a smaller chassis but a tad larger screen size than the 8 plus.

    I'm thinking the plus models could be gone in a wee while
    or...they'll keep two sizes at "affordable luxury" while the third model will be closer to a fuller luxury version

    And me.
    My 6+ working well.
    If they make something better for me such as able to use more than one SIM card.

    My sentiments exactly. What are they offering new that would make me give up the iPhone 6 I bought used for $300?

    I'm due for an upgrade, but I'll probably just go with a 7. I liked my SE for a while, but the novelty wore off (it is missing a lot of features that are in the 7 and higher).

    Does anyone here have a smartwatch? I know three peoplethat got one (my mom one of them) All of them said they'd never give it up and can't go back. Once you get used to getting notifications so quickly on your wrist, pulling out your phone feels like an act of pained labor
    :LOL:

    that's quite a significant size difference, I'd think that alone would be the first if not most of a deciding factor?

    The water proofing for me is becoming kind of a big deal. Had some water damage with this phone, lucky apple care took care of it for a resonable price, but I won't ever get another phone unless it's water proof. Every Iphone after the 6s is reasonably water resistant

    It will be interesting to watch and see how that works out. Will face recondition turn out to be a functional upgrade (it's certainly more secure) or was it a necessity forced on them by the removal of the home button.

    I actually prefer the size of the SE, over the size of the 6 and 7.

    I was hoping for more.

    Once again apple announces features that have been on Android for years.

    The iPhone is a big player, and serves well to encourage other companies when they innovate. But I don't see much innovation at all this time.

    In fact, they did some things markedly worse. What the hell is with that top bezel on the X?

    I agree it's not that aesthetically appealing, but did you see how much tech they packed in there? Not sure how else they could have done it
