Should you buy an iPhone 8?

Is the iPhone 8 worth the upgrade from the iPhone 7?

The good:

6 core A11 Bionic chip: 25 to 70% better performance

An all-new quad-LED True Tone flash system with Slow Sync

Upgraded image signal processing improves low-light performance

Battery seems better

Wireless charging

Support Dolby Vision and HDR10 content

True-tone Retina HD display adjusts the white balance relative to your ambient lighting

New speaker system delivers up to 25% more bass than iPhone 7

The bad:

Similar design

Still no USB-C cable

Slightly heavier than iPhone 7

Lack of real new killer feature

iPhone 8 demand lower than expected? Why could that be?

    Hey Cody, I love your idea about the $149 iPhone SE. Is it still working for you? Would you share the steps you took? I just bought one, but I don’t want to open the packaging until I am rather certain it will work. I have my 5s sim from At&t to use. I hope to add it to my current plan that my wife and I share. Thanks in advance.
