Iphone - which one to buy

Hi all

I want to upgrade from my 6s... it’s working fine but I thought I should upgrade now with Black Friday coming up.. it would just be a hardware buy (plan remains the same)

Should I get
Iphone XR 64gb for 729.99
Iphone XR 128gb for 799.99
IPhone X 64gb 949.99
Or wait next year till 5g iphone

Thanks!!!

iPhones retain their resale value much better than Android devices. Just buy the best one you can afford and sell it when you want to upgrade.
An earlier version of this article incorrectly described a behavior of crows exposed to crow corpses. Live crows only touch, attack and attempt intercourse with crow corpses, they do not scavenge them. (Actual NYT correction)

I'm in the same boat except I have the 6S plus. Holding out for a BF deal on the XS Max.

That said, I suspect the best no contract deal will be with the iPhone 8 or 8+. Staples will undoubtedly come out with a 10% off coupon. The 8's have the same chip as the X and retains the 3D touch which has been forsaken in the XR.

The XR is not worth its asking price, so the X (or XS) it is.

OP have you compared the two side by side?

I have the XS and still planning to buy the 256GB Yellow XR as an iPod really. The difference will surprise you, night and day especially when you've gotten to custom to bezeless phones.

Is the 6S and 7 good phones? I was contemplating getting one.... I think the resale value is a good plus even though I'm 'buying.' Does anyone use Linux and own/use an iphone? I am wondering if it works okay.

Only deal for a phone outright has been Staples. 8s Plus for $949 and you get a $200 gift card...

Anyone seen anything for the XR?

On contract, the X is the best deal and best fone spec wise. X is better than the XR (except battery life). Upgraded to ios 12 it makes buying the XS, XS max negligible. Next yrs flagship lets call it iPhone XI... is alleged to have full new hardware design and everything... So you might hold on to that 6s for 1 more yr if you can (if you go the contract route on the iphone XI). If buying outright buy the latest and sell when the XI is out. For me I can get the X, 256GB on contract - premium plan for $0. Have $525 credits with backend pricing gives me the $0.
