From the above chart, you do agree with me that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus looks quite identical with the older iPhone 7’s. While the iconic iPhone X looks completely overhauled. iPhone X seems to be the top-of-the-line among the trio, its screen size is bigger, and the display has rounded corners that follows a beautiful curved design. One of the major features iPhone X offers is the face ID facial recognition which allows you to complete payment on the web, stores and within apps. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus still retains the simple circle touch ID with us accessible from the Home button.
Looking at the iconic iPhone X, you’d notice that the Home button is gone, and it’s been replaced with a “gesture-style interface”. Hence to access the Home, you will need to swipe up from the bottom of the display. Also it’s safe to mention that iPhone 8 plus has longer battery than the iPhone X and iPhone 8. Apart from this, iPhone X tops the line in all ramification with its compact size. So why get an iPhone 8 plus when there’s an iPhone X? Apparently, the only downside in iPhone X is the price tag. But you’d know that the best things in life aren’t free. If you can swallow the price, then you needn’t be worried on which among the 3 iPhones to buy. Since the iPhone X makes everything obvious.
It’s quite unusual for apple to unveil three different iPhones at the same time, but the iPhone 8 doesn’t offer much features. I’d stick with my iPhone 7 plus if i’ve one, since they aren’t completely out of specs. iPhone X may battle with Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 plus, since the performance is unrivalled. Overall, my final peroration is that iPhone X is a new generation of iPhone!.
