So if you do not have iPhone 7 and you are in absolute love with iOS then iPhone 8 should be your ultimate choice and if you got loaded wallet then you can even think of iPhone X.

If you want to compare other options like Android then there are some solid options are available like OnePlus 5 or Blackberry KeyOne. Galaxy Note 8 is also very good option if you are the big man of SPen.

There is no big innovation in iPhone 8 but if you are Apple lover its a good phone with water resist, wireless charging and all glass body.
