iPhone X vs iPhone 8: Which one should you buy?The seven things to consider before you choose your next iPhone.
[MUSIC] Apple gave us three new iPhone models to choose from this year. The iPhone 8, the 8+ and a completely redesigned X version, so which one should you buy? Here's what you should consider. [MUSIC] iPhones have never been cheap, but this time, you could end up spending almost $1500 on one. The iPhone 8 starts at 700. The plus at 800, and the cheapest 10 will set you back $1,000. That's before tax, apple care, and extra storage. So if you are on a tight budget you may as well rule out the X from the get go or consider the Apple Upgrade Program. [MUSIC] But if price is not your main concern, the next thing you should think about is size. The iPhone plus It gives you a bigger screen but it's significantly bulkier. The traditional 8 is more comfortable to maneuver with one hand but you sacrifice almost an inch of screen of real estate. The iPhone X falls at a happy medium between the two in terms of size and weight, With a bigger screen, then even the iPhone plus this, thanks to a nearly buzziest design. So if the screen is your top priority, the X is the obvious choice. It has the largest screen on any iPhone and in all the display with richer blacks and HTR technology for a lifelike finish. The down side is you'll have to put up with that obvious notch. All three have true tone technology that adjust the hues to ambient lighting, but the 8 and 8+ still have that HD retina display. What you won't find on the X is a home button. Apple removed the home button on it's 10th anniversary phone. Which means you have to learn a new way of controlling your phone based on gestures. So if you're particularly attached to a physical home button, you may wanna go with the 8 or 8 Plus. The fingerprint scanner disappeared right along with the home button on the X. It uses Face ID to unlock, which Apple boasts is even more secure than touch ID. The 8 and the 8 plus kept the same fingerprint scanner on the home button. So if you're not ready to replace your fingerprint with your face, you may be better off with one of these two. [MUSIC] Now if the camera is the most important feature for you, then you may as well skip the 8. Both the 8 plus and the 10 have a second telephoto lens for better zoom and DSLR like portraits. Plus, Apple added portrait lighting to portrait mode which mimics any kind of studio lighting to make portraits that much better. The 10 does have a slightly faster aperture and dual optical image stabilization and it also does portrait mode on the front camera for pro quality selfies. All three phones come equipped with Apple's AR kit for immersive gameplay and looking at the stars. But the front TrueDepth camera on the 10 takes it a step further with a special setup for face-mapping, that can transform you into your Snapchat filter. Or turn you into an emoji version of yourself. If your current iPhone is on its last leg, and you can't wait another day, then you can eliminate the X from your wish list right away. Apple's tenth anniversary iPhone won't be available until November, and that's if it's not on backorder. You can pre-order the other two on September 15th and have them in your hands by September 22nd. [MUSIC]
