    For the first time, I skipped an upgrade, deciding to forgo the iPhone X and stay with my 7Plus. Good choice and I was enticed with a 2018 X version that kept the physical size of the 7/8plus and gave me an even larger screen, notch and all.

    If these predictions are true, it seem this will not happen. So a 2018 X 5.8” version is in the forecast for me. The 8 plus size features list is too downgraded for me. See below.

    I’d go with the 5.8” OLCD and not the 6.5” OLCD. The 6.5” physical size is just a tad too long. The 6.1” lacks a dual rear camera.

    Looking forward to your review since we will be skipping whatever comes out in 2018 having replaced a 6+ with an 8+.

    That makes sense to me. A big step up from the 6 to 8. I may continue my yearly replacement to a 2 year cycle also. Going to a 2018 X would be the beginning. I looked more closely at my kid’s X and I do like the smaller size (not wearing cargo pants as much anymore...;)).

    The actual screen is more narrow, but a bit longer. I also heard that the notch is smaller, and maybe by 2019 it may disappear altogether.

    I skipped the upgrade as well. I am very happy with my 7 Plus and will have to see what the choices really are in 2018.

    If I do upgrade, the 5.8” would be my choice as well.

    I think every other year is the way to go, I was bored with my 5s and 6s, they were too similar to the 5 and the 6.

    Come to think of it I was bored with my 7 as well and hence the change to the 7 Plus mid year.

    I don’t get bored with my upgrades. I thought the last cycle was a meh since the screen was smaller, the memory less and the price tag higher. Even AppleCare was higher!
