Some of them are useful but change camera settings in settings app is quite dumb tbh.

PhoneArena are you going to talk about how Apple has cut iPhone 8 manufacturing by 50% right now? I guess 4 iterations of close to the same old thing doesn't help.

Maybe because im waiting for iphone X as replacement for my 7+. As an iphone fan, i wanted the greatest iphone every year. I don’t care about the price cause i have a stable job and i’ll be selling my 7+ too.

Some of those are iOS 11 features not iPhone 8 specific.

That's by assuming those features will make it into older iPhones.

A couple of those aren’t new - I was able to remove notification badges since forever. And you can always type to do what Siri does just by swiping down on the app screen.
