It’s that time of year again where Apple releases another reasonably priced phone. This year Apple released the iPhone 8, 8S, and iPhone X. So we should all expect plenty of iPhone 9 jokes.  

The iPhone 8 has glass on both the front and back of the phone, which makes you two times as likely to crack your screen within the first 24 hours of owning it. The phone also has wireless charging which is made possible by the glass on the back. It is priced at $699, a decent drop from the price of $749 when both the iPhone 7 and 6 were released.

The iPhone X has quite a different story. With facial recognition, this iPhone is like nothing ever seen before. Unless of course, you have snapchat which has used facial recognition for at least a year. The iPhone’s whole front side is a screen apart from the camera, making it even more likely for you to crack the screen than the iPhone 8. The screen is entirely OLED instead of LCD. OLED is organic light as opposed to LCD being liquid crystal display. With all these changes, Apple chose to price the phone at a reasonable $999, because $1000 would just be ridiculous.

All in all, I personally don’t think the new phones are worth the investment. If you do, then go ahead and buy the phone. But just know, I’ll be sitting here on my iPhone 6S listening to music with my headphones plugged into a headphone jack and tapping a screen without any cracks.

    When I have the iPhone X and am listening to music with my dongle, I’ll be laughing at you sitting by the outlet listening to music through your headphone jack, because your phone’s battery is completely drained after three songs.
