My 6+ started acting up recently. I have a case open with Apple, but I have a feeling the only fix might be an 8+

If they were to offer me a 7+ for cheap money I'll take it, but I haven't decided whether to be frugal and grab a cheap 7 or spring for the 8 and hope it lasts longer than the 6 has. I wanted to keep this for 4-5 years. Only 2.5 is not good.

The phone was super fast after installing ios 11, but every day more and more apps are slowing and freezing. Apple support said it's a known issue and the .1 update released yesterday should fix most or all issues, but it didn't on mine.

I know the internal gyro is breaking in mine though. That started about 2 months ago - stuff auto rotates and will not switch back etc...

Support is going to call me back after debugging the analytics report I sent today, so I'll update here if it's a software issue for sure.

Two more hours until my support call back, but...

https://gizmodo.com/one-week-with-th...e-8-1818736319

My resolve to wait it out is crumbling. If Gizmodo's review is anything near reliable 6+>8+ would be a really sweet upgrade.

I might go park at an Apple store to wait for that call.

So far so good with my iPhone 8+. The pictures of our lake trip came out beautiful. Subjectively better than my 7+. Other than the camera improvements I don’t think it’s worth upgrading from a 7+ in general. Unless you’ve been jonesing for wireless charging...which I haven’t. Should’ve been called the 7s+ honestly. It’s an small incremental upgrade. Then again I don’t do much that would stress the A11 cpu.

Wait for the X. I cannot stress how much the 7 and 8 feel like phones from years ago when you use them. Sure they are snappy but the look and feel is so dated.

That's literally the only downside to the 8 that I've been able to come up with. A part of me is hoping my 6+ will last until the X is out, and another part is hoping it dies tonight so I can justify a snappy new 8.

I hate being torn on a purchase like this lol. It's win either way as far as comparison's to the 6 go, but that X is one pretty phone with an awesome screen. The notch doesn't even bother me...

I don't really mind the "dated" design. The main thing I care about is "does it work reliably and get good battery life". The answer for the 7+ was Yes. The answer for the 8+ is Yes. I wouldn't have bought the 8+ if my Verizon plan didn't let me trade in my 7+ and just continue making the same payments on the 8+. No money out of pocket besides a small upgrade fee.

That's basically where I'm at. Even if I trade it in the value will only be $175 or so. If it's dead then nada. The only upside is that I can get by with 64GB instead of the 256GB, so I would pay around $200 less for the 8+ than I did the 6+ - I think it came to $759 without applecare and taxes....

The 7+ is only marginally cheaper, so while I'm not really wanting to spend the cash right now, if I have to I'd rather pay a bit more and have the 8+...

So I get pretty much every samsung, lg phone that comes out. I buy the iphones myself. Yes the iphone just works and that's probably it's strongest argument. However, if you step out of that iphone world you will realize these days there are android phones that just work as well. Once you leave the bubble it's very hard to look back and knowing your missing out on newer designs.

Probably very true. My last Android phone was the Samsung Note 3. It eventually slowed to a crawl after a year of use and 2 OS upgrades. No amount of resetting/rebooting would help. Plus the Samsung bloatware was rubbish.

If I do ever go back to Android, I'm going to get one of the "pure" variants and not Samsung.

Touchwiz has COME A LONG WAY since the note 3 days. I would say the latest touchwiz of android has faired well. Something I couldn't even say for the s6.

True - my youngest is the sole Android user in the family, but she has none of the problems on the S7 that she had on the S6. And the 6 wasn't nearly as bad for her as my notes 2/3 were for me.

Good to know.

What it boils down to is I'm a creature of habit. Until Apple does something to seriously piss me off, I'll probably stick with them.

I have the whole apple eco system as well. However, I got everything on the android camp as well. I was purely apple for the past year due to the note 7 blow up. Having returned with the note 8 so far it's been lovely. I will be getting the X and I have the 8 plus it was a no cost upgrade on my end.

Quick update - the issues seem to be tied to the display settings in accessibility.

cycling the autobrighteness was one.

I had the screen magnifier (awesome for quick snapshots of tiny mac addresses and s/ns) enabled. Disabling that helped a lot.

Apple is calling the phone fixed and I'm agreeing - nice and snappy again.

Auto brightness turned itself back on when I updated to iOS 11. I hate auto brightness. Not only that, like you said, they moved it from the display properties to accessibility. I dont think it belongs there.

I was surprised to see it there tbh. I just asked her a few minutes ago if all the bugs regarding lagging were tied to the display settings and she thinks so, but said to not quote her on it. That just seems where it's going for now.

I carry 2 phones. One is a foreign number. I usually carry an iphone and android was 2 iphones for a while. The dual sim route doesn't work out all the time for me.

It's pretty clear Samsung has Apple by the balls for those OLED displays.

Samsung is most likely overcharging Apple on purpose.

Yeah, they probably got at least another generation or 2 of iPhone to have apple by the balls. By 2020 LG should be up and running to where they can compete with Samsung and Apple can pressure either of them to giving them lower prices.

Wife just updated to the 8+, from a 6s.
Camera is certainly better, screen is better too. Speed is nice and fast, but really...everything is marginal improvements. Haven't messed with water resistance yet, or used wireless charging. (which are the big differences, aside from dual camera)

Overall, nice improvements, but also really making me see how close to peak smartphone we have gotten. (Her mom was still on an old iphone 5, not 5s or c, just plain old 5.... she's getting a really nice update to the old 6s. )

Just went from a Oneplus One to a iPhone 8 Plus. It's my first iPhone ever.

Sometimes when I unlock the phone the screen seems to run at a cinematic 24Hz, lock and unlock fixes it (iOS 11.0.3). Battery seems excellent. Display is pretty. Webbrowsing is literally 100x faster than chrome+my oneplus.

Feels big, fat and heavy compared to my oneplus. Some UI things I dont like (the homescreens, notifications get very spammy etc).

About a week in how are you feeling after moving to Apple from other phones?

Also Pre-orders for the X are coming up friday morning. Hopefully I can remember to get online as soon as they go up the snag one. Reports are saying there arent many to go around so I may not be able to get one like usual.
