Tim Cook reckons $999 is a value price for the iPhone X

Only the iPhone X comes with the controversial Face ID.

The improvements in the 8s over the previous generation of iPhones and their pricing under $1,000 will be attractive to many Apple users, said Andreas Scherer, managing partner at Salto Partners.

Apple CEO Tim Cook says his company's $999 iPhone X is available at a great price considering what buyers get for their money. Its tests showed the iPhone 8-Plus outperforming the 7-Plus by 67% when running the 3DMark IS graphics benchmark, by 28% when running the popular Geekbench 3 CPU benchmark in single-core mode and by 84% when running Geekbench 3 in multi-core mode. Yep, so far the Siri face can't pull info from third-party apps, but Apple didn't rule out this happening in the future.

And Face ID-which Apple touts as being less vulnerable to bad actors than its Touch ID fingerprint sensing-could be more secure than using a fingerprint sensor on a phone simply because such sensors tend to be so small that they require you to input several partial prints from the same finger. While on the subject of cameras, the iPhone 8 Plus has two new sensors and a new feature called Portrait Lighting.

"Well it's a value price, actually, for the technology that you're getting, and, as it turns out you know most people are now paying for phones over long periods of time, and so very few people will pay the price tag of the phone initially".

The Verge's Nilay Patel said the iPhone 8 shows that Apple's design has "stood still for four years", and that the "true competitor" to new Android devices from Samsung and LG will be the iPhone X.

David Pierce referred to the iPhone 8 as "already obsolete", due to the iPhone X. He considers the wireless charging ability, "worth it for the freedom", despite charging slower than with a cable.

Chris Velazco noted that the glass exterior of the iPhone 8 has kept his handset free of nicks and scratches, in addition to enabling wireless charging.

TrueDepth also powers Animoji, a new feature which creates fun, animated emojis by recording the user's facial expressions that can be sent to others via messages.

What more could I ask for from my smartphone's processor? The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which look similar to last year's models, became available for pre-order on September 15. She considers the iPhone 8 a solid choice for those upgrading from a much older device, such as the iPhone 6s.

"The regular iPhone 8 is good", Spoonauer continued, "but 4.7 inches just doesn't cut it for me anymore".
