iPhone 8/8+ : Out of date design.
iPhone X : Over priced. No touch ID.
iPhone X should have been $699, or $799 at most.
they should have just release the X only. created a problem for themselves. Steve Job would not have done it this way. LOL
It's not like the iPhone 7 is all that fragile and a bit more durable really doesn't mean much.
Cheap gimmick and early hands on reports aren't that positive. Also, a simple software feature, there's no reason the can't 7 do this. Apple was just desperate for something to distinguish the 8.
Literally 5 years behind on that one and just adopting someone else's tech late. Hardly something you should brag about.
Anyone find the 7 slow? I'm sure there's a few people who do, but not many.
Not yet since you haven't sold as many iPhone 8's as 7's. And just because you sell 80 million iPhones doesn't mean 80 million people love the camera.
Others beat you to that punch by over a year and didn't have to take away the headphone jack to do it.
Marketing doubletalk. Much cheaper phones have far superior 1440p OLED displays in a smaller form factor than your non-plus model.
Another software gimmick you're pretending has something to do with the 8 when you're just desperate for a distinguishing feature. And it doesn't do much yet, wake me up when there's a killer app for AR.
