The iPhone 8 starts at $700, while the larger iPhone 8 Plusstarts at $800.

The iPhone X, on the other hand, starts at $1,000.

Simply, you can save at least $200 by going with an iPhone 8, which, keep in mind, is still a brand-new phone from Apple, with most of the same features as the iPhone X.



From a functional standpoint, the iPhone 8 & the 8 Plus are identical khổng lồ the iPhone X.

Each phone is powered by Apple"s new A11 Bionic chip, a neural engine, & the M11 motion coprocessor. The only difference is how the phones use these features: The iPhone X uses the A11 chip & neural engine for its new face-detection system, Face ID, which the iPhone 8 does not have.

And all are also running tiện ích ios 11, which means you"re getting the same great apps và ecosystem in the iPhone 8 as the iPhone X.



Touch ID, which is used lớn unlock the device và pay for goods via táo bị cắn Pay , is a known, proven entity. I own an iPhone X, và Face ID works well mostof the time — but as my colleague Tony points out, Face ID is less reliable than touch ID, & not as fast.

Face ID is very good. Hãng apple says it"s less prone to being tricked than cảm biến ID, và can work in most situations where you think it wouldn"t: in the dark, if you add hats or glasses, or if you make actual changes to lớn your face.Still, cảm ứng ID is comfortable to lớn use, works almost instantaneously, & doesn"t require you physically look at the phone.

Face ID has a ton of potential, but touch ID is still the gold standard.

4. The iPhone 8 và the 8 Plus support fast charging và wireless charging for the first time — just lượt thích the iPhone X.

The downside, unfortunately, is that you"ll have lớn buy extra accessories if youuse either new charging method with any of these new iPhones. Táo khuyết offers several Qi wireless-charging pads (its own AirPower pad won"t be out until later this year), & you"ll need to lớn buy $25 to lớn $75 worth of equipment(a Lightning-to- USB-C cable and a USB-C nguồn Delivery-compatible charger, specifically)if you want khổng lồ use fast charging for your iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or iPhone X.

Again, this isonemore expense lớn consider when thinking about the iPhone 8 versus the iPhone X, which starts at $1,000.

If you care at all about photography, the rear cameras on the iPhone 8 Plus và the iPhone X are nearly identical. The iPhone 8 is a great shooter, but the larger iPhone 8 Plusadds a second telephoto lens so you can zoom in without losing image quality.

The only difference is that the iPhone X has a few "exclusive" software features: Portrait Mode for the front-facing camera (in addition to the back); Portrait Lighting, which lets you remove backgrounds in your selfies for a dramatic effect; và Animoji, which lets you send animated emojis lớn your friends that mimic your facial expressions and even speak using your voice. But as someone who owns an iPhone X, I"d argue none of those features are worth the price difference between the iPhone 8 & iPhone X.

táo khuyết

The TrueDepth camera system is the lone interruption on the iPhone X"s beautiful edge-to-edge display. I don"t mind the notch too much on my own iPhone X, but I still notice it all the time.

This comes into play with everything: If you"re trying a new phone wallpaper, or watching a video, you always need khổng lồ take the notch into account. Also, many apps still have yet to lớn be optimized for the unique shape & layout of the iPhone X, which means for now, apps will look as if you"re running them on an iPhone 7 or iPhone 8, leaving most of the screen"s real estate unused.

8. If you're upgrading from an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, your old cases will fit the iPhone 8 — but not the iPhone X.

Hollis Johnson/Business Insider

The iPhone 8 and the 8 Plus" dimensions are nearly identical lớn their predecessors, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The new phones are a bit heavier, & there are slight differences in their height, length, & depth, but all the differences are less than a millimeter each, which means your old iPhone 7 cases will still fit.

The iPhone X"sdimensions are completely different from those of past iPhones, so your old cases won"t work with this phone — one more expense to consider on top of the phone"s price.


The iPhone Xhas stunning battery life. According to most benchmarks and tests, the iPhone X gets an average of 12-13 hours of battery life, which is really, really good.

Still, the iPhone 8 & 8 Plushave superior battery life compared to lớn the iPhone X. Expect 13-14 hours of battery life for the iPhone 8, and 14-15 hours (or more) of battery life on the larger iPhone 8 Plus. It"s one of the few phones you can carry around & be confident it"s going to lớn last you all day.
