    Haven't upgraded from my iPhone 8 because Apple decided to make big phones. What is the size difference between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 11 Pro ? Looking at videos it appears the iPhone 11 Pro is the smaller and the best of the latest iPhones. I have the iPhone 8 with 256 gb of internal storage. Should I upgrade to the 11 Pro ?
    Thank You, Vinny

    The 11Pro has better cameras, larger screen, FaceID and a much better battery life, to name a few things. Until recently, we had both in the house -- the 8 has been replaced with an 11 Pro.

    no doubt the 11 Pro is the better phone.
    Form-factor-wise, I still prefer the 8, and wish the 11 Pro was as thin and as light. I would really like a phone the size & weight & thinness of the 8, without its bezels. Was hoping for the SE2/9 to be something like that, but apparently this is not going o happen.

    Why do you say the SE2/9 is not going to happen?

    It is likely that a 9/SE2 will happen, but based on all leaks that I know of, it will be an improved 8, with better internals, but the same front side as the 8. So large bezels, fingerprint sensor (which is not bad per se, it's just one of the reasons for for large bezels).
    I was hoping for a kind of "mini-11 Pro" => this is what I meant by not going to happen.

    Apple has kept this address for a long time. It's particularly good in the way it will put your older phone next to the new ones plus 3 at a time.

    The should you upgrade is really a personal matter. An 8 is a great phone for all the basics and vital stuff. An upgrade could move you to the full-screen type, superior camera, 2 or 3 cameras, and the face recognition as examples. I see peoples' choices at scale (IT admin). There aren't many rights or wrongs. Many who balk at the Pro price love the 11s.
