Count on face recognition and good-looking selfies to overcome the sticker shock of Apple's most expensive phone to date.
"The 8s feel like a swan song - or, to put it another way, they represent Apple's platonic ideal of that first iPhone, an ultimate refinement before eternal retirement", Manjoo said, while complimenting the cameras and speedy processing power. A report by MIT Technology Review reveals that while the core technology may not be innovative, Apple's 3D face-scanning methodology could be the next step to biometric capabilities on a smartphone. Particularly since features like Face ID are still unproven as a replacement for Touch ID.
With the official announcement of its new devices, Apple is jumping over a step, especially in what concerns the absence of an iPhone 9 and a 7S. The question that should be of more importance is whether the iPhone X is worth its price considering its value for its user over its lifetime. The new Portrait Lighting mode uses a similar tactic to adjust the lighting effects around the subject. Apple's CEO told host Robin Roberts that $999 represents a "value price" for the technology buyers were getting. He also talked about carrier deals and discounts that make the iPhone X a little cheaper. Held on September 12, the Cupertino, California, company showed off its next slate of phones with the iPhone 8 (with Plus version available) and the X, their new "ultra" phone set to rival Android's already present set of OLED powerhouses.

The pilots destroyed ground targets imitating infrastructure, fortifications and convoys of the simulated enemy, it said. They're usually very large. "That's worrisome if you're a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation country on the border".
"Overall, my pick between the two new iPhones is the iPhone 8 Plus".

Consumers are more excited about the iPhone X than the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which were unveiled at the same event last week. And though the dual-camera setup on the iPhone 8-Plus is slightly inferior to the X's - the X supports optical image stabilization (OIS) for both lenses rather than just one, and has a slightly larger aperture for its telephoto lens - both deliver major improvements compared with the iPhone 7-Plus' camera with the help of better sensors and image-processing. They will hit the store shelves this Friday.
"On its face, the 8 looks like an iPhone from 2014", he added.
Geoffrey Fowler said the glass design on the iPhone 8 isn't as good as the design from the iPhone 4. Depending on the model you want, you might get your handset on the launch day itself if you pre-order it online.
