Why Choose The iPhone 8:

  • Smallest and easiest to handle among the three
  • Lightest among the three
  • Cheapest among the three
  • Home Button (Touch ID)

Why Choose The iPhone 8 Plus:

  • Has a Bigger Screen than the iPhone 8
  • Dual Camera Setup

  • Home Button (Touch ID)

Why Choose The iPhone X:

  • Biggest Screen among the three

  • Densest display (458ppi) among the three
  • Lighter and slimmer than the iPhone 8 Plus
  • HDR True Tone and Oleophobic coating

  • Face ID

As you can see, the iPhone X has the advantage over its siblings. It has most of the features of both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, being the most expensive of the three. Not all of us, though, have that much money to spend, or is that keen to let go of their home button and learn how to operate a phone via screen only. That’s where the cheaper iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come into play. If you don’t need all the added gimmick of the iPhone X, then you can settle with the iPhone 8 Plus. If you need a smaller and cheaper phone then, the iPhone 8’s your guy.

Ultimately, it will all come down to price, size, and features. Rest assured that whatever you choose out of these three, you’ll be getting the best of what Apple has to offer.
