Ig­nore the X fac­tor

Life & Style Weekend - - STUFF - with Ge­off Egan

YOU may have missed it dur­ing the iPhone X hype – but Ap­ple also an­nounced the iPhone 8 at their re­cent event. It doesn’t have the X’s head­line fea­tures like fa­cial recog­ni­tion or an edge-to-edge screen. But it does come at a more rea­son­able price.

The iPhone 8 and the Plus ver­sion are the nat­u­ral next ver­sions of the iPhone 7. They come with an im­proved cam­era and in­tro­duce wire­less charg­ing to the base line – but don’t have the same flash that the X does. It’s the next iPhone for ev­ery­one who likes what iPhones al­ready are and don’t want to spend $1800 on a phone. If you are look­ing for big changes and new tech­nol­ogy in your iPhone, and happy to spend more, you are look­ing for the X. Price from $1079.

The iPhone 8 will pack plenty of fea­tures for the price.
