    I've ordered a silver iPhone 8 from Apple UK, delivery via AddressPal, but am having second thoughts about the size and colour.

    I've only had an iPhone 5 and although it does seem small I was reluctant to go for the 8 plus thinking it'd be too big.

    Which is the best size and colour for the 8 and would there be any issue returning the unopened / unused 8 to Apple?

    By size do you mean the dimension differences between the 8 and 8+ or the storage differences between the 128 or 256?

    I have an iPhone 6s+ 128GB and can't see myself using a smaller screen or capacity again. Its also in an Otterbox case so bigger than normal. Other people find the bulk offputting and have difficulty using the keyboard onehanded but I'm absolutely fine with it as I find smaller phones a bit fiddly since investing in the "phablet". My next investment will be in an iPhone 8+ 256GB (or equivalent as there's still lots of life in the 6s+, said he touching wood).

    I don't see why Apple UK should take your iPhone back just because you changed your mind after "saving" €20/25 and perhaps losing out on your Irish consumer rights.

    Thanks

    I don't know why I asked that question because there's a statutory 14 day returns policy under distance selling regulations.

    If you're referring to the EU six year claim period the delivery address is irrelevant. My billing address and Apple ID address are in the ROI.

    The saving was €33 buying from Apple UK vs Apple IE. It makes no sense to not avail of this saving.

    I keep thinking Brexit is a real thing rather than the political football that gets kicked over and back around the abandoned customs post at Black lion.
