rom Face ID to an OLED edge-to-edge
display to wireless charging, the new
iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X have
a lot of new and exciting features. It’s hard
to know which iPhone to choose! Our CEO
and publisher David Averbach and our senior
web editor Sarah Kingsbury debate the merits
of the new iPhones in hopes of swaying your
decision. Whose side will you take?
Sarah: The iPhone X is the best device, and it’s worth it. Hav-
ing the biggest screen of any iPhone in a smaller phone is
significant. And the quality of the Super Retina OLED display
is out of this world. With Face ID you don’t even have to fuss
with trying to get Touch ID to work, it just unlocks because it
sees your face.
David: To me, that’s actually an argument against the iPhone
X, because we know Touch ID works well. We know the
Home button works well. I’m worried about having to relearn
a user interface that does not have a Home button.
Sarah: You’re going to have to learn how to use the new interface sooner or later. These improvements are most likely
coming to all the phones, eventually.
David: Yeah, but maybe I should wait until I don’t have to pay
so much for the privilege of learning it.
“Make the sensible choice and
stick to the iPhone 7 or 8.”
“The iPhone X is out of this
world; it’s money well spent.”
