It’s not very often that two new iPhone models are upstaged at their own launch, but that’s exactly what happened at Apple’s September event this year. The iPhone X was the star of the show, the cool new kid everyone wanted to hang out with, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were relegated to the role of the designated driver - boring, reliable, the one you know will be there once you are done partying with your new friends.

    Premium Phone finish. Easy to hold in hand. Though big in size easily fits in pocket. Performance- There is no lag at all. Ios is very optimised. Battery- easily goes for one day with full charges inspite of heavy talking using the phone. Camera- just awesome.
