iPhone 8 / iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone X

iPhone 8 came out almost simultaneously with iPhone X. It is not surprising that some of the Apple’s fans were puzzled about which one to get. Today, it is much easier to make conclusions judging from users’ experience. It turns out that the majority prefers iPhone 8 for many reasons:

  1. It is much cheaper – you can save at least N 75,000 and spend it for AppleCare+ program or cool accessories.
  2. It has a usual Home Button, which uses an improved haptic feedback mechanism.
  3. It comes in Gold color, unlike iPhone X, which is available only in Silver and Space Gray.
  4. It is equipped with Touch ID, not Face ID that proved to be unreliable occasionally.
  5. It comes in usual design, while iPhone X has been criticized a lot for its upper panel that any users find confusing.
  6. It is smaller, and judging from the tendency for big smartphone displays, iPhone 8 might soon become a miniature relict.
  7. Both models support fast charging, have identical camera and performance, though the latter has considerably higher price.
