Hmmm.

I picked up an iPhone 7 256GB in Matte Black with AppleCare+
BNIB off Kijiji for $900CAN about 40 days ago ... works very well and gives me longevity for the warranty in terms of future 2 replacements - since its 256GB and only limited production for Matte Black Should there be no in stock or shipping replacement in 7 days on AppleCare+ replacements Apple will need to upgrade me to a 256GB storage for iPhone 8 model. And they don't make Matte Black !

Great phone but I think I'm in the singular camp that does NOT need dual cameras on the back and figures if the industry cannot get it right with 1 camera, then what's the point for 2!

I am thinking of doing the same too (picking an iPhone 7 plus instead of 8 plus . Is they had a 128 GB version for 799£ I would buy it but this way it seems like a ripoff to pay £950 to get the 256 GB. Strangely though it seems that more people in UK pre-ordered that one instead of the 64 gb (for the silver one anyway )

Although with new compression, 4K recording is still going to use up a LOT of storage. That and now finally with Files app with direct folder access to iCloud folders ... iCloud storage is going to also be used up quite fast. I've yet to meet anyone with just an iPhone or iPhone, AW, and 1 Mac (I have iPhone 7 and Nike+ Series 2) to purchase more iCloud storage. So makes sense to get teh 256GB version for iPhone 8 if someone is going new.

Personally not enough to go full on iPhone 8. iOS 11 runs smooth like button on my iPhone 7, plus I'd rather the refinement in the cpu/gpu on next years version - although the 8 and 10 have the same chips and significantly faster ... but let's be honest this is iOS. We're not going to see major difference in most actions UNLESS recording video - playing/recording music directly to the phone using iRig etc. 7MP front camera would be nice but I'm a man, not some selfie 14-21yr old female trying to get hits on Instagram, SnapChat, for breasts and booty shots lol.

Get quality iPhone 7, with ability to extend AppleCare+ (90days from original purchase) and enjoy for at least another year. Wait until the new iPhone 2018 where it uses the X's design as a standard across all models.

Cheers.

PS: I'll post a link tomorrow from Macrumors thread of the pictures I took during a foggy night - to compare with what I took eons' ago using my W810 that's part of my profile here on Esato.
