    I'm thinking about upgrading from the 7 to the X or XS. Or maybe I'll just wait for the XI next year.

    I'm too stingy. Last phone I bought cost me £40, just a few weeks ago.

    Can't be doing with all the bullshit hype.

    Yes, I always upgrade to the latest model and sell my previous phone. A better camera, battery, and faster processor sounds good to me. I know it is pricey, but I saved up for it and I think you should be allowed to give yourself something nice sometimes.

    A quick remark: the keynotes in September are never about big changes. They are always about upgrades to existing systems. Completely revamped products and systems are usually planned in the beginning of the year. So, that might be why you feel disappointed.

    After thinking about it, I'll probably keep my 7 for another year. Here in Germany the XS will start at 1149€ (1340$), there are better ways to invest that.

    Yes Apple is overpriced but don't come and say 1k$ is too much for a phone,. We still think of a phone as a cheap thing but over the years the phones got essential to us, you don't think 1k is too much for a car do you?? Or for a computer . Think about how much you use your phone and for how many important things and maybe you can see 1k for a working phone that won't drive you crazy for being slow is not that much.

    Android pixel 2 xl user btw just so you don't call me Apple fan boy

    No, I don't like apple too much, I prefer android, its a lot more lenient with what you can do.

    I have been using apple from last 4 years. Its fact that even my phone is working good we upgrade to the new one when it is released. It is called addiction

    I guess, there was a reason why Steve Jobs said....."Stay Hungry, stay Foolish"

    I am not "Hungry" for another overpriced phone, nor "Foolish" enough to shave off a thousand bucks for a phone that might have a 'next version' under production to make my 1 grand piece (if i were to buy) an outdated version in the months to come.

    I am with iphones for 10 years now, I am used to it and due to the fact half of my job is done from my phone I don't see myself changing to another company.
    With that being said, there is nothing exiting with the new devices, I am just going to wait for my iphone 7 to die and buy whatever will be available than.

    And yes, I know I should just get out of my comfort zone and move to something cheaper and just as good :)
