iphone 7 plus matte black

The iPhone X is an incredible smartphone.

I upgraded to the iPhone X last year via the iPhone Upgrade Program, and it’s one of my favorite iPhone designs ever. It’s got a gorgeous OLED screen, it’s fast, and I like the potential for Face ID (although I agree with my colleague Tony — it needs some work).

Still, I upgraded to the iPhone X from an iPhone 7 Plus, and I have very fond memories of that older phone. In many ways, the iPhone 7 and the larger iPhone 7 Plus are both an incredible value, if you’re deciding between iPhones.

Here are 9 reasons you should consider buying an iPhone 7 instead of the iPhone X right now:1. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are more affordable than the iPhone X.

This is probably the biggest factor for most people.

The iPhone 7 costs $550 for 32GB of storage, or $650 for 128GB.

The iPhone 7 Plus costs $670 for 32GB of storage, or $770 for 128GB.

The iPhone X costs $1,000 for 64GB of storage, or $1,150 for 256GB.

Keep in mind: If you buy an iPhone X, you should also buy AppleCare+ ($200), since out-of-warranty repair costs can be incredibly costly.

With AppleCare+, iPhone X screen repairs costs $30, and other repairs cost $100.

Without AppleCare+, iPhone X screen repairs costs $280, and other repairs cost a whopping $550.

To be all the way clear: If you don’t buy AppleCare with your iPhone X, and its glass back breaks or shatters, you are paying $550 — the cost of an iPhone 7.

Even better, buying an iPhone 7 through Apple’s Refurbished store starts at just $500 — half the price of an iPhone X.
