Pre-orders for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will start today in the U.S. While in India there is still a week before you can get register yourself as a proud owner of one of the world's most popular smartphones. If you do not already know it, pre-booking for iPhone 8 and 8 Plus starts in India on September 22, 2017.
So, the big question that haunts every Apple fan will now probably be this 'on which iPhone should I spend my money?' This is the first time Apple has launched three smartphone models simultaneously iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, which adds up to the problem of potential buyers.
I will help you decide which of the latest iPhone models suits you the best while discussing their features.
iPhone 8: For the up-to-date kind
The latest and the least expensive of the three smartphones from Apple, iPhone 8 comes in vibrant new colors including Rose Gold, Silver Grey, and Black. Equipped with the latest operating system from Apple, iOS 11, this device has very few new elements to captivate users. It has a form factor and size exactly similar to iPhone 7.
What's new about the smartphone is the True Tone display that it offers. This technology adjusts the color of the display in changing the ambient light. Moreover, it has the latest A11 bionic chipset from Apple which promises faster performance for the device compared to its predecessor.
So, if you have been using an older iPhone viz. iPhone 6 or 5S and are looking forward to an upgrade you can certainly get this device. It is not as expensive as compared to the other two iPhones and also delivers fast performance.
If you already have an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, upgrading to iPhone 8 will do you no good.
iPhone 8 Plus: For the love of camera
No one does it better than Apple when it comes to smartphone photography especially after the dual camera setup launched by the brand in the iPhone 7 Plus. Not only does it capture pictures with bokeh in the background but it also delivers the best quality possible using a smartphone. It is also quite ahead of some DSLRs in the entry-level and mid segment.
iPhone 8 Plus has the same dual camera setup, however, it now gets image stabilization for both the rear cameras. It goes without saying that iPhone 8 Plus is the ultimate device for smartphone photographers. The portrait mode on the device is much more refined and it also gets several new features that help users develop stunning portraits.
However, if you already own an iPhone 7 Plus, do not bother getting your hands on the device. It is not at all different from the iPhone 7 Plus except for the portrait features.
If you have an older version of iPhone and want to upgrade while wishing for a great camera, this could be the perfect choice for you.
iPhone X: For those who wish to have the best
iPhone X is undoubtedly the best smartphone in the world. It's entirely bezel-less design, flamboyant colors, face recognition feature, OLED display, and latest gesture control makes it possibly an entirely different race of smartphones.
It is certainly going to be the most longed device globally and Android lovers will try to downsize its popularity by pointing out its bads, but it really is a great device. It is expensive for sure and won't be I the budget of the majority but if money is not a problem for you, you do not need to think twice.
The only reason that I could possibly come up with to avoid buying iPhone X is the fact that it does not have a home button and users will have to adjust to its gesture control.
So, there you have it, three great devices with three distinct consumer base. There are certainly few great competitors from Samsung and Google that challenge the latest iPhones but not all of the devices are as elegant and classy as the iPhones.
Moreover, the quality offered by Apple is unmatched to date and the life of its smartphones is certainly lasting in terms of both physical durability and software compatibility.
