So, how do you find that Red iPhone 8?
This week, Apple launched a new iPhone... color. As a part of the Product Red tradition, which we do hope is now a regular thing for iPhones, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are now available in a beautiful, vibrant red and — finally — black fronts!

That said, there's nothing else that's different about the phone. The prices start at $699 for the 64 GB iPhone 8 variant and stop at $949 for the 256 GB iPhone 8 Plus version. It's a bit unfortunate that the new color has been introduced half a year after the iPhone 8 launched, and 6 months before the next edition is introduced. We assume it's a good strategy to revitalize sales a bit, but those that have already gotten an "ordinary" color may feel a bit cheated out. Of course, we also would've loved to see a Product Red iPhone X, but that didn't happen, unfortunately.

Still, there are plenty of people who are up for an upgrade or who are currently not even rocking an iPhone. Does this eye-melting red color have what it takes to entice you to buy? Let's see!

How about those red iPhones?

Apple should have given its front a red accent That would have made it even better

I wish it did though, but looking at how vibrant the red is, a black front makes sense.

Android trolls raping the “Eh...no” button *smh Do you even care that these phones sales are intended for a noble cause? Maybe some of your friends or relatives are affected by this disease and you only care about trolling apple *rolls eyes

To be honest, if am to help ( RED ) I'd donate to them directly, not necessarily buy a Red iPhone and only know a portion of it goes to them, this plight came from iJustine who returned her Red iPhone 7 Plus and got a full refund then proceeded to donate the entire money plus more to RED directly, and I for one agree with her.

I agree with you but at least they are not just releasing another color just to boost sales but to donate a percentage to this cause and involve the user in this so they feel they are also collaborating with the cause and that’s what I’m saying, there’s nothing wrong with that and there’s no need to be a shallow troll, don’t you think?

Huge black bezels instead of white. Still looks and feels so outdated.

I'm on the T-Mobile JOD program so I think I might replace my black 8+ with a red one.
