Why I Didn't Wait For The iPhone X

The iPhone 8 is as good as the iPhone X Well almost

The iPhone 8 is as good as the iPhone X Well almost

Basically, that means the iPhone X is identical to the 8 Plus in terms of random-access memory and processing power, gaining an nearly unnoticeable 41mAh of battery juice. At a retail price of $699, Apple is making a profit of $451.49 on the sale of each unit before additional costs like assembly are factored in. These are the sections where the company has improved the new generation iPhones.

That added to concerns on Wall Street about demand for Apple's new devices after the launch last Friday of the iPhone 8, a less expensive model than the iPhone X, drew smaller crowds than previous launches. Another thing to consider here is Apple's new A11 Bionic processor, which isn't only very powerful, but is also supposed to be incredibly power efficient.

Apple is not releasing iPhone 8 sales numbers, but last week when the iPhone 8 officially hit store shelves, there were worrying signs. The iPhone 8 Plus delivers a similar talk time as the iPhone X and up to 14 hours of video playback, which is interesting considering the handset has lower battery capacity than the iPhone X. It also has fast charging tech. Based on the listing, the iPhone 8 packs 2GB of RAM leaving the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X with 3GB of RAM speed.

One source says only tens of thousands of iPhone X units are being churned out daily with the expected ship date coming up in early November.

A newly revealed patent could mean that Apple is still working on fingerprint scanning technology that sits beneath the screen.

Many iPhone reviewers also did a scratch test on the device, first using day to day materials that might scratch your phones such as coins, keys and even a knife but the phone did not have any noticeable scratches on it. The main change is the new glass back, put in for wirelesscharging purposes, that's more than likely to be covered up in a case.

The new rear camera is where the iPhone 8 Plus really comes into its own.

Although the battery on the iPhone X is larger than what's in the iPhone 8 Plus, it won't actually offer better battery life, as pointed out by BGR. According to prevalent industry standards this is considered respectable.
