I’m flip-flopping back and forth between wanting the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X.
iPhone X argument:
Best screen (higher res, HDR, amazing contrast ratio)
Smaller physical size
Better rear cameras
Much better front facing camera
iPhone 8 Plus argument:
Not convinced Face ID is ready to replace Touch ID
Slightly better battery life, apparently
My main goal all along has been to get the “best” camera available in this generation. I’m upgrading from a regular iPhone 6, so the jump in capability there is going to be way bigger than the difference between the 8 Plus and the X, but the X is still technically the best. And that screen really sounds amazing.
But man, I’m nervous about Face ID. Maybe I give too much credence to the rumor mill, but following along all summer the story it paints is that Face ID was a compromise because they couldn’t do the edge to edge screen any other way (couldn’t reliably make Touch ID work behind it, apparently), not a polished feature whose time had come.
