    Who in their right minds would pay £600 for a handset in the first place? Actually, probably a lot more than £600 in reality given it will be on a contract with probably more like £800 handset contributions.
    I guess the kind of people paying for £130 headphones, are the kinds of people paying for £600 handsets. Point taken :lol:

    to all peoplethe iPhone 7 is amazingapple provide a jack to charging port adapter with EVERY iPhone freealso EarPods which have a connection to the charging portso there is really no need to worry
    the earpods will cost 150£ on top of a phone of about 650-750£. These earpods could easily be lost or stolen as they are so small and visible in public...
    Wireless earbuds are known to have lower sound quality too.

    Just managed to preorder the iPhone 7 plus in Jet Black - shipping in 2 weeks, so I'll get it a week later, but three minutes after the site updated the shipping was 4-6 weeks!

    Yeh, I went for Jet Black too, so not really surprised! My sister got hers through carphone warehouse last year, and although they gave her a month's waiting time, it did come earlier, obviously as a few cancellations happen, so I'm hoping for it a bit sooner!

    Watch has said BY 30th, so also hoping that'll be sooner - can't believe the watch sold out so quickly to be honest.

    Now the absolutely horrible wait for them to arrive

    What storage did you go for? Yeah, on the apple site they are now being dispatched in November! So 8 weeks! I ordered mine on the dot too, it's crazy

    I have a 6S so I'm alright with the wait, although of course I'm excited! I've never had the use of the watch so I've never owned one!

    Well I hope they are both worth the wait!

    128GB - probably the most popular model (jet black, 128) I reckon... ****!! That's really crazy haha!
    I've got a 6, so not too worried either tbh - I've never had an Apple watch before either, which is why I'm glad that's coming sooner as that'll be fun and new to play with in the interim!

    And I'm sure they will be

    I got mine from Carphone Warehouse with O2 as a network. Been with them for years when I got the iPhone 6. They used to give discounts on handset upfront costs for their loyal customers but they don't anymore sadly.

    When I preordered the iPhone 6 they knocked £30 off from original handset upfront cost!
    Oh sounds like a great deal! I got my iPhone 6 with GiffGaff and then decided to give that contract to my sister so I can get the S7 with EE. I absolutely HATE EE, it's THE worst network I have ever been with. BUT they had the cheapest deal so :')

    We already had a contract with EE that just ended and I was looking to upgrade to the S7 because I thought it would be cheaper, we were with them for a long time etc, they offered no loyalty deals or discounts or anything and turns out it was cheaper to be a 'new customer' than upgrade. So I cancelled the contract and started a new one, so I didn't have to pay the upfront cost.

    Ah I went for the 256, but looking around the 128 is definitely more popular! This is probably going to be my phone throughout uni so for four years, so I wanted to have more storage than I need rather than less! I'm just obsessed with the Jet Black - I always thought I'd get the gold again or rose gold - but it's just so damn sleek!

    Yeah that'll be cool, I hope it meets your expectations

    Ahhh fair enough, yeh, that's fairly important, I have 128 6 at the mo, and use about 80GB of it, and didn't think it was worth the extra price tbh... Did look at the 7 Plus, but again, the contracts that I could get it on were just so inferior for the price that I was willing to pay.

    Ah, you've got the 7? Yeah I got the plus, just because I'm paying outright and I can't use the normal after have the 6S plus! It's too tiny! If I wasn't buying it outright, then there's no way I'd pay the extortionate monthly amount on contract haha!

    Where are you even getting that from, because from reputable sources I've only seen no price given yet

    Wasn't me who said it, but the prices are available on the apple website...

    Yeh, and that's the thing, if I went for it, I'd never be able to go back, and it's not really tiny haha! Tbh, I'd probably lose the Plus really quickly just by it slipping out my pocket 24/7 xD But yeh, if I was buying outright, I'd get the Plus. On contract, there was a massive difference because for the same bundle, the contract was about £10-15pm more than the 7, as well as an increased outright cost for the handset, so yeh, I've been saving for this, but haven't saved that much xD

    It is rather expensive! My cousin got the 6S and so can't even use it! I assume it's just because I've gotten used to the bigger screen and I'm too sloppy to use the smaller screen!

    On carphone warehouse my phone would be from about £40 to over £90 a month depending on upfront cost!? No thanks haha!

    Yeh, definitely agree. Once you've got used to the big screen, everything and anything looks tiny xD It's like how when I use an 11in, after using a 13in laptop for a few days, the 11in feels tiny, but when I adjust to it, it's fine..

    Yep... xD Not nice I managed to get my contract down a little from the last 2 years, with only an upfront of £129.99 so not too upset about it

    The same people who would spend £40k/£50k on a BMW or Mercedes Benz.

    I would be interested to see car manufacturer vs phone OS, I really would not be surprised to see a surge in Android with the more premium manufacturers.

    That would be interesting indeed.

    But to be honest, I just don't like the amount of hate and negative comments made towards people who choose to purchase an iPhone 7 and especially if they've worked hard and saved up for it. Why should people care so much and how does it affect the lives of other individuals? People can buy what they want. You don't see me going round making comments at people who decide to buy a Samsung Galaxy S7, an Aston Martin, a BMW, a Mercedes Benz, an Xbox One or PS4, Sky TV, etc.

    But I don't know. Maybe people enjoy putting other people down and to try to create some kinda drama for entertainment as that's what our society has become nowadays.

    I just pre-ordered one as my 5 is way past its time, that way I can sell it if i don't like it or want to get the (rumored) revolutionary 8. Deffo wouldn't get it if i had a 6 since there isn't a massive jump.
