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?

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?

iPhone 8 / Plus or iPhone X?

iPhone 8 / Plus is good enough for me
iPhone X all day every day!

Apple is a big player. They throw out the 8/8 plus and then everybody is going to get the X. People with less money gonna get the 8 and the ifans gonna buy the X. Maybe they gonna sell more X then 8/8 plus. I had iPhone in the last 10 years, i had android before ,but as of right now i feel like i'm going to switch back to android. Note 8 and V30 are incredible. Apple falls behind. i OS is awfully boring. I had wireless charging and swiping gestures on my Palm Pre 10 years ago. I think they should invest more to add extra battery life to the phones IMO. I'm not going to buy iphone 8/8 plus or X. Price wise i think iphone 8 should cost $499 iphone 8 plus $649 and the X $799.

From this poll, it looks like Apple will earn a lot of cash. Many people view the iPhone 8 as a already outdated by the X and will spend more for the top model. Samsung and LG will watch Apple getting even more rich. Until they will come out of their laziness and will create a truly bezel-less phone, no "chins" and "smaller bezels" this time !

Iphone 8 Plus. The iPhone X is cool. My main gripe is the loss of the fingerprint scanner.

If money were no object, then the X. But money IS an object, so the 8.

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.

Annnd here, as usual, is darkidiot, trying to convince himself that the real reason he's not getting the iPhone X is because he can't afford two high end phones at one time. It's ok, now be a good boy and film yourself looking at used 2002 Corvettes, trying to wrangle a test drive, and posting that lame crap on your YouTube channel.

You could only dream of getting a Corvette, at least he could buy one if he wanted to.

He'll get a high mileage used 2002, he's not getting a new one. Nice suck up job though sissy!

He's so pissed at me, he can't stand it sissy lol. He comes running like a puppy, every time I post...notice? I own a late model Corvette Grand Sport, and I think he's bothered (jealous) by that. Apple royally disappointed me with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, and I'm gonna voice my opinion about it. He doesn't even realize, when he's being baited lol. Watch his response to this, or not...who cares. BTW sissy, I'm absolutely loving my Note 8...best phone of 2017...easily. And no ugly notch at the top, beautiful and symmetrical.

Sup bro was going to ask you about the Note8 thinking if getting and wait on the IPhone 9 I'm like you bro I love my IPhone but these new phone they presented didn't excite me at all they just going after that top dollar as usual plus they got rid of the 128gb lol no way I'm falling for that keeping my 7 plus who cares about animated emoji I'm a grown man lol tell me about the Note 8 I've played with it seems to be an awesome phone plus HDR compatible the screen is absolutely beautiful

Here's the skinny on the Note 8 so far. It's beautiful, nice premium heft and feel, hella features, S-Pen, water resistant, dual camera, screen recording. You name it. Zero lag, the octa core 835 is seamless. Great battery life, I can't kill it in a single day, without looping videos or something. It's got it all, and lacks nothing bro. The S-Pen is way better, and latency much reduced, this is the IT phone for me. I won't be getting an iPhone X, or 8 Plus. Not one issue with my Note 8, nothing but top notch performance. Try it out, you have 14 days to decide bro. I'm being 100% honest and real.

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

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.
