    For the iPhone 8 / 8+ previous years' release sched for PH may still be Oct/Nov but we may have to wait longer for the iPhone X.

    /me looks at the title of the thread and sees it is about iPhone 8. :)

    iPhone X on the other hand I expect it to ship in PH by Q1 2018.

    iPhone 8 base model price is now reasonable. With 64gb & almost same specs. I don't mind the single rear cam. Is hevc h.265 and heif good to go for ios 11? It will, at most, double the capacity of the 64gb.

    they do walkin. you just have to get the reservation before hand online. it starts 8am HK time. last time during iPhone 7 release 8am the reservation opens 805am its sold out already.

    you need to have a HK cellphone number (prepaid is ok).

    the difference between ip7+ and ip8+

    quoted from macrumors ---

    • The key new features of the iPhone 8 Plus include a new glass-backed design, True Tone display, faster A11 Bionic chip, wireless charging, fast charging, 4K video recording at up to 60 FPS, and Bluetooth 5.0.
    i dont think its enough for me to switch to the ip8+ so i will be keeping my ip7+ for another year.

    Hi guys question! Tho im not sure if this will be the right thread. Planning to change my Samsung S7 to an iPhone 7 plus but as of now, 50k pa din ang price nia sa apple store. I'm not sure if Apple will reduce it further to 45k for the 256 gb variant. Pero let's say they will reduce it further, 5k~ na lang I can have the iPhone 10 na if I ask my friend from the US to buy it for me.

    Question: will there be a problem regarding warranty if I buy the phone from the US?

    Yes. Apple has country/region specific warranty for iPhones. In the past, local authorized resellers honor warranty for iPhones which are bought outside of PH but have the same Model as the PH release.

    yes. you need to be physically for walk-in. if you have a relative living there "WITH HK ID" you can preorder but it must be under his name instead.

    Hopefully the HK/China release wont be as chaotic as last year's since most Chinese would gun for iPhone X in November. Even so, I think iPhone X will take off 40% of the demand from iPhone 8. We'll see later how fast it will sell out though.
