    My son is interested in upgrading his iPhone 6 Plus, but is too busy to dig into the details of the new models. I'm trying to help. These are the distinctions between the too two tiers I have found.

    Differences between the 8 Plus and X:

    FaceID/touchID
    458 / 401 ppi
    5.8/5.5 screen

    The X has super contrast ratio and is an ounce lighter and a shade smaller. It has dual optical image stabilization. It has Portrait mode, Portrait lighting in the front-facing selfie camera (they both have it in the rear camera) and Animoji. It carries a $200 higher price tag and won't be available until at least November 3, whereas the 8 Plus can be ordered today and will be delivered Sep 22.

    Oh, the X has a blemish top dead center, a splotch for rays, readers, and mic. Some are complaining about that in online forums.

    Any corrections?

    The 8 Plus is a wider screen. If he doesn't mind a taller more slender screen, he might like the X. The X will crop photos and videos made on his 6 Plus in the full screen edge to edge. To see them fully, you tap the screen twice. But then they look smaller and not edge to edge.

    Even though I’m not buying the X, I see that Speck.com has some good cases. Ive got one on my 7 plus and it works good. I’ve dropped it a couple of times and it’s held up good.

    Speck makes some of my favorite non-leather cases.

    I just popped $960 usd for my wife's Samsung Note 8. So, a little more for the X is not that big of a deal. I will get the 256gig model. This will be my first foray into the world of iOS.
