iPhone 8 or iPhone X: which one would you go for?

iPhone 8 or iPhone X: which one would you go for?

So, Apple unveiled 3 new phones, as rumored. We have the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus duo, which are basically upgraded versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. That makes it the 4th year in a row that Apple reiterates the design language of the iPhone 6, but hey — the 8 has a glass back, so that's different.

Then, we have the iPhone X – a handset that revolutionizes the Apple lineup with an all-screen front, a complete lack of a home button and Touch ID, and... well there's not much more in there. For those of you that were super-hyped by the rumors leading up to the unveiling, the 10th anniversary iPhone model might have been a slight let-down. Or at least not as exciting as expected. Hey, we do get Animoji, right?

iPhone 8 or iPhone X: which one would you go for?


So, minor differences aside, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X are pretty similar hardware-wise, with the latter having a couple of extra bells and whistles. We are curious – which one would you go for? A $700 / $800 iPhone 8 / 8 Plus, or the $1k futuristic iPhone X?

Did iPhonearena really need to make 2 pools about the new iPhone?

I think you are in the wrong poll. I like the V30 so much myself but this is about the new iPhones.

Your right it is about the new iPhone's. But the iPhone 8 is definitely not worth it especially with only a low resolution HD display that has been there since the iPhone 6, with 2 GB of RAM, and a single camera for $700. So what it has wireless charging. You can get wireless charging sticker that goes into any lightning adapter for $20-25. Not to mention there is even a case that offers wireless charging. That is a rip off at that price in 2017. People should stay away from the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 plus or X is a different story. However still overpriced.

Maybe just don't vote on this particular poll with this particular question?

So for any other poll, you have options like, "None of the above" or "Meh, will wait for 'the next iteration'..." and sorts but now when asked about that option for this poll, you seem like someone's poked a needle in you.
I'm sure this poll is just a goodwill census measure but man, you guys should work with Apple already (officially)...marketing department will definitely progress.

This is no any other poll you Samsung fanboy sad cry baby bitch. If you don't like PA just get the f**k out of this web site or shut your stinking little mouth and be happy with what you get. No one will listen to your pathetic soul and change anything over here. You get that you little s**t??? Good.

I don't know what's more pathetic, you with all those cuss words or you assuming I'm a Samsung fanboy.
I like PA, I'm just voicing my opinion, hence, the comment section. But, I definitely don't like you Piyath, and most definitely don't like the way you write or talk.

If he's a fanboy, what does that make you since he obviously triggered you in a massive way with his comment?

The only bit that annoys me a tad about The PhoneArena is their sheer bias, and what annoys me even more is that they try to pretend they are neutral.

It's like EverythingApplePro Youtuber! But at least the Youtuber attests the fact that he's an Apple fanboy by naming his channel what it is, "EverythingApplePro"!

Same goes to blogs like AndroidAuthority, WindowsPhoneArena, AndroidPolice, SamMobile and Crackberry. They all have extreme bias towards a specific brand and/or line-up and they say it right away.

Here I'd like to mention Crack Berry, you ought to see their Blackberry Passport review! You'll have a good laugh now that you know how it flopped! And PhoneArena isn't that far behind when it comes to Apple, quite frankly!

Why not call it the bloody "Sheeple Arena", eh?!

Oh well,

G'Day!

I don't like that it's either FaceID or passcode for the X so the 8s are just fine with me.

If I were inclined to grab one, it would be the 8 Plus. The iPhone X strikes me as poorly thought out change for no real gain.

I think they should have called it the 9 and saved 10 for when they had in screen FP working. The OLED full screen is certainly long awaited awesomeness, but X feels a bit hamstrung with only FaceID.

Then again Apple probably loves giving X buyers a good reason to upgrade again next year for XS.

LMFAO, nobody cares what paid shills write, except for you and tedkord. Besides, like I said before, it's not like either of you losers will be getting the Note 8, let alone a new iPhone.

If I buy an iPhone it will be iPhone x . Why by iPhone 8 when it looks exactly like the previous gen 6 and 7.

If I buy an iPhone it would be because there is no other option left to buy.

The Note 8, that I went for. Not only did Apple release another one trick pony (not one feature I wanted), they also added that ugly notch at the top, that doesn't crop when watch videos.

Note 8 FTW!

Reminds me of those ugly Motorola watches with the flat tire displays, horrible design.
