The iPhone 8 Launch Day Lines Were Extremely Short

Apple's iPhone X will go on sale in November at a $999 starting price.

Ibrahim Al Shamsi from Al Ain bought 12 iPhones.

Without any truly revolutionary new features, we'll have to see how the iPhone 8 and iPhone X sell in the long run.

The Apple iPhone revealed to the world 8 wireless charging Qi and presented it as a novelty, though the standard has existed for many years and actively exploited in the Android smartphones.

In San Francisco, customers waiting in line were evenly split between those interested in the iPhone 8 and those looking to buy the Apple Watch Series 3. Analysts say Apple's future success in the country, where as many as 2.33 billion smartphone were in circulation previous year, largely depends on replacement demand from its existing users. For that reason, Apple would rather that you skip trying to be a hero by replacing your broken display or back glass, and instead turn to an Apple Store or an authorized Apple retailer.

But let's start with the basics. However, the back panel is a little more hard to access on the new iPhone 8 as compared to the iPhone 7. Because of such high demand, pre-ordering one can be frustrating, but that hasn't been the case with the new #iPhone 8, according to YouTube personality, Dom Esposito. "There aren't too many new features to this one".

The display on the 8 and 8 Plus is better than on the 7, but only very slightly. This adds a subtle vibrancy to everything you see - though honestly the only time I was able to appreciate it was when I compared it side-by-side with the iPhone 7. The 8s use a technology called LCD, while Apple's rivals in the high-end phone market, including Samsung, use a newer screen technology called OLED.

Apple iPhone X is the smartphone of 2017 with the bezel-less display, as the year 2017 is the year of bezel-less displays for every brand like Samsung, LG etc.

Most images were astounding, and given the iPhone 8's advantages in size, convenience and usability, I predict that my camera will be spending a lot more time in the drawer. I simply want a phone that lets me take attractive selfies and has enough storage capacity for music and movies.

Indifferent reviews of the iPhone 8, which comes 10 years after Apple released the first version of the revolutionary phone, drove down shares of the company to near two-month lows of $152.75 on Thursday, as investors anxious pre-orders for the device had come in well below previous launches.

One more thing...Some hidden features are lurking in iOS 11.
