Apple announced three new iPhones this year: the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus, and the high-end iPhone X.
Those three phones start at $699, $799, and $999, respectively.
The most expensive iPhone model this year, the iPhone X, in many ways represents the future of the iPhone.
That said, there are several reasons it's worth considering an iPhone 8 model instead of the iPhone X:
1. The iPhone X is more expensive than the iPhone 8.
This might be the most important factor for many people.
The iPhone 8 starts at $700, while the larger iPhone 8 Plus starts at $800.
The iPhone X, on the other hand, starts at $1,000.
It's simple math: You can save at least $200 by going with an iPhone 8, which, keep in mind, is still a brand-new phone from Apple.
2. The iPhone 8 and the 8 Plus are powered by the same brains as the iPhone X.
