    Simple question. In your opinion, based on the specs, the internals, and pricing, which new iPhone (X, 8, or 8 Plus) is the best value?

    I'd be more than happy with the 4.7 inch iPhone eight as it's basically physically identical to my iPhone 7 but it would be a 25% bump in performance and a slightly better camera. I'm not sure if I would need wireless charging but I was reading a couple few weeks ago that the wireless charging might be painfully slow. Do we know if this has been changed or any info on that?

    Also a lot of people did not like a white face on the jet black iPhone 7, what's happening with that? I watched the keynote that maybe I wasn't paying attention enough. Do they offer a black and black front and back now?

    Also do we know if iPhone 7 cases would fit the iPhone 8, they seem physically similar.

    Putting my "omg 1k for a phone" feelings aside lol.... I think they're all decently priced for what you're getting.

    I had my sights set on a 7s Plus (which is actually the 8 Plus), but now after visually seeing the X I'm honestly considering saving my mad-money (personal monthly allowance) for the next 4 months and buy the latest and greatest. Why not? It's either a new phone or tons of yummy fabric to sew new wallets and handbags.

    That's probably going to be about $1300 Canadian. Good thing we can sign a contract! But then monthly plans here are easily over $100 a month.

    I bet you are on ETSY, great app.

    I typically buy them unlocked, although I didn't see an unlocked option on the Apple buy page. Perhaps they'll add it when the phones actually go live for purchase.

    I do have the ETSY app, and I do have a store there, but at this time nothing is in it. Too many selfish sews (ie; making things for myself) lol.

    I think that they’re all decent... the iPhone X is a bit too much for a phone, costing almost $2000 AUD in Australia. Is it worth it? I think it is.. although I do think it’s way overpriced.

    X is overpriced don't care about face ID, animal emojis and landscape mode viewing videos or watching YouTube is going to be awkward. I think I like the 8 plus better imo.

    I’ll answer your question in regard to “me”.

    iPhone 8 - I’ve stated that if the next iPhone offered a Plus and non-Plus version, I would get the non-Plus version this time around. With that mind, if I do get the iPhone 8, and I’m heavily leaning that way, it would definitely be my first choice.

    iPhone 8 Plus - Not gonna happen

    iPhone X - The only thing I’m interested in is the edge to edge display. I’m all business with my iPhone. Of course, I’ll test everything associated with the iPhone X, but when I’m done testing, it’s back to my typical business-like use. iOS 11 will run the same on all 3 devices. My 3rd-party apps will work in the same manner.

    With all of that in mind, the iPhone 8 is “my” best value and option. On the other hand, I can only get the edge to edge display with the iPhone X.

    Also might be interesting to note that cases for the iPhone 7 SHOULD fit on the iPhone 8, the difference is less than 10% of a millimetre.

    Correct.
    The Apple store categorised the leather and silicone case to be for both the iPhone 7/8.

    Best value? I would say the x... Based off of specs and build material.

    The 8 Plus is the best value. Decent screen (size/resolution), more RAM, Dual Cameras, best battery life.

    If it didn't look exactly like my last 3 phones, I'd get it.

    Basically, waiting on Google's event now.

    Buy one of the new iPones so you can call a wrecker when the BMW's break down. iPhones have a better warranty, and will last a lot longer.

    For what you get, I think the 256gb iPhone 8 Plus is the best value @ $949. The iPhone X just seems overpriced. When aspect ratio is considered, the 8 Plus actually has more screen area than the X. I like the wider screen of the 8 Plus in comparison to the taller skinny X. Here's a comparison with the X screen overlaid on top of the 8 Plus screen:


    The 8 Plus has some nice new features to consider as well. So with all things considered, the 256gb 8 Plus is the best value, IMO.
    256gb iPhone X - $1,149
    256gb iPhone 8 Plus - $949
    I really can't see paying $200 more for the X. Apple seems to be setting us up for higher prices on all models going forward. The next couple of years will be interesting to see.

    Talking strictly value here I’d have to go with the iPhone 8. It’s the least expensive of the lineup and is just as powerful as the 8 Plus and X. Design aside, I’d say the jump from the 7 to the 8 is much larger than from the 8 to X.

    Which one am I going to get? Definitely the iPhone X. I’m not as price sensitive as many so the cost factor doesn’t really come into play.

    I'm thinking that the Polished Surgical Stainless Steel frame, Face recognition and OLED screen has a lot to do with the $200 difference in price between the 8 Plus and the X and not just the edge to edge and/or screen size.
