Would I be making a mistake if I purchased the Red iPhone 7?

by DavidKashton / December 2, 2017 12:05 PM PST

Quick overview. I currently have the iPhone 8 but I’ve totally customized it from font to back down to even the hom button. Nothing over the top with a Red skin, black carbon finish Zagg screen protector, chrome silver Apple logo on back and a Red home button. I was given a brand new iPhone 8 Plus and I’ve never been a fan of the Plus models which is why I have an iPad Pro. My favorite color big time I’d Red and I’ve wanted the Red 7 ever since first seeing it. To be honest I customize everything but the Red iPhone 7 I would leave stock just the way it came or if I did anything to it I would simply put Zagg new luxe black carbon screen protector on it to go to black carbon front instead of the white front and I’d get a Red hom button to match the back. That is if I were to do anything to it but honestly I think Apple should have made the phone with a matching Red home button so that’s the only minor change that I would make to it. I absolutely love the phone. Since I have two iPhone 8s one regular which is the one I totally customized and is my daily driver I do not need the 8 Plus. I was originally going to wait until the iPhone 10 came back in stock with my carrier which is Xfinity mobile and exchange it for the latest and greatest supposedly iPhone 10 but I find myself repeatedly being drawn to the Red iPhone 7. I need some helpful insight as to which model I should exchange my 8 Plus for please maybe advice as to pros and cons long term and overall what Is the general best logical decision. Both are great devices. The 10 is drastically different with a larger screen but no Touch ID which I’ve grown to like so I just need some sound advice on what ultimately do. Thank you to anyone or if several of you respond to me. I would greatly appreciate it the feedback and helpful insight which I will listen and use to help me make my overall decision. Thank you to all.

That some are drawn to shiny things and that is not a fault. Without it a lot of products would have never been made or sold.

So nope, you're fine.

Davidkashton, It's totally your choice which one would you prefer. but if I would be your position I would prefer iPhone 7 black or jet black for its imaging feature.
In short :
1.A10 Fusion chip
2.Retina HD display
3.12 MP OIS primary camera
4.128 GB internal storage

Hi, DavidKashton
If i were you, i will purchase Samsung S8, i think it is more beautiful than iphone7. if you really like red phones, I think you have more choice, such as Umidigi S2 or Elephone P8
