What makes the iPhone X better than the iPhone 8?

17 September 2017

"We are excited to be offering the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X to our customers who are seeking a better wireless experience for less money on the most popular devices", said Greg Butz, president of Xfinity Mobile.

It begs the question that, given all these must-have features in the iPhone X, why would someone choose the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus instead?

During the Apple event held at the Steve Jobs Theater on September 12, a handful of new gadgets were announced by CEO Tim Cook. The iPhone X prompted him for a password because it had accidentally been tried to unlock by an unauthorized face right before the device was put on stage. The iPhone 8 Plus is priced at S$1,308 and the iPhone 8 at S$1,148. The 256GB storage version of the iPhone 8 from T- Mobile will ship within 3-4 weeks. The feature is enabled by a "True Depth" camera system in the A11 neural engine. The smartwatch will be on offer with Verizon NumberShare at United States dollars 10 per month for the first three months, for a limited time, with waived activation and upgrade fees. Apparently, it will only identify one face with its new Face ID technology, confirmed Techcrunch.

However, we're learning that at least one USA wireless carrier is instituting what looks to be a money grab from customers - and it's not that carrier that you might expect.

Equifax, Inc. (NYSE:EFX) Oversold but Is That a Buy Indicator?
Following the sale, the chief financial officer now directly owns 42,078 shares of the company's stock, valued at $6,126,556.80. Zacks Investment Research downgraded Equifax from a buy rating to a hold rating in a research report on Monday, July 17th.

Twitter user Keith Krimbel was a little skeptical about Face ID, as he raised a concern - what will prevent a thief from taking my phone, pointing at my face, and running? While the phones will not become available until later this year, CEO Tim Cook said the new models were a big leap forward. However, what Apple didn't announce was that it will support fast charging, which was listed on one of the slides from the presentation.

If compared against last year's iPhone, the iPhone X has almost doubled its multi-core performance; no doubt due to Apple unlocking the A11 Bionic's full potential. So we should wait and watch for a while how this 10 anniversary iPhone works in the real world before buying it.

With these unique features and specifications, Apple's iPhone 8 has introduced itself as the smartest in the lot of various domestic and global smartphone brands.
