From 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?

Over­all Value

Sarah: The iPhone X is the best de­vice, and it's worth it. Hav­ing 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.

“The iPhone X is out of this world; it’s money well spent.”
