This is a weird year for the iPhone. For the first time, they have made three great phones that can cover a lot of consumer ground Let’s think of it like buying cars. The 8 is the smaller, more practical starter car. It’s got a few nice features and it will last you a couple years. It’s not going to win any award but it’ll get you around. The Toyota Carolla or Honda Civic of iPhones The 8 Plus is that mid-tier sedan, the Chevy Malibu if iPhones. It’s pretty cool, it has some comforts, it says you’re a little older a little more intelligent, but still, it’s a 4 door sedan and kind of boring once you get used to it.
