The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus walk into a bar, which one would you get?

The Three Amigos, the Three Stooges - whatever your ancient movie reference of choice, the new iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and the exquisite iPhone X will be in our minds for a while this season, and a few after that, and not only because the X won't be released until the leaves start falling in November. Apple's biggest ever iPhone announcement left us with two significant upgrades in terms of chassis material, horse power and camera specs - the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and one fresh new "all-screen" iPhone X that Apple dubbed "the future of smartphones." 

You can argue with that premise all you want, but it's usually Apple that laughs all the way to the bank, and something tells us this time won't be much different, despite the startling $999 price tag of the iPhone X. That is why we are curious to find out, if you are in the market for a new Apple handset, is it going to be the safer iPhone 8 or 8 Plus bets, or are you going all rogue without a home button and ready to part with a grand for the iPhone X when the October 27 pre-order date hits your wall calendar? Take a pick in the poll below, and tell us why in the comments.

Be careful. The Samsung fanboys are very sensitive today, especially after seeing A11 chip demolish all the competition.

All of you sound like stupid teenage girls the way you argue over phones.

Says the one who takes every argument here very personal, with burning and passionate hate.

where was that shown? All I saw was meaningless benchmark numbers.... however I did see an iPhone X failing to recognize its user, and taking a sweet time to log in after recognizing the face.... Dropping TouchID was a bad idea... I expect the iPhone to be quite fast, but I don't think it will "demolish" the competition... Go have a look of the Xperia Premium vs others in youtube for real life testing... app to app, and multitasking...

It didn't fail, the phone needed a passcode to activate Face ID, device must of been restarted before the presentation. And you can see the unlock animation happen instantly with the face unlock, but you have to swipe up to get to the home screen, guessing so that people don't blow past their notifications on the lock screen if the device just unlocked with the face and no swipe up Early hands on from a few websites like CNET and Verge and etc are all saying that it's quite dam fast and accurate, so thats good. Photo can't fool it

I use both the iPhone 7 and the S8 +. I am unable to figure out which one of the two you meant?

We obviously will. If there was something better we'd go get one. The X is cool, but not Note 8 cool.
