Your $800 iPhone 8 Plus has $290 worth of components in it

The iPhone 8 is as good as the iPhone X Well almost

The fear of breaking up screen earlier iPhone users, plus seems more afraid to break back of device k. On a personal note, I've been using the iPhone 8 Plus for a few days now and am highly impressed, coming from an iPhone 7 Plus.

Like the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 8 Plus features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, an aluminum frame and hardened glass. But the technology laid out in the patent achieves similar results while taking up much less space under the screen, potentially leaving space for the sub-screen fingerprint sensor to make an appearance in future iterations of the iPhone. Frustrated customers might pick the iPhone 8 instead or simply wait out this year altogether and delay their purchase until the 2018 iPhones are announced.

In 2016, iPhone shipments fell for the first time ever. According to the IHS Markit Smartphone Model Market Tracker for Q3 2017, the top three smartphone makers are Samsung, with 23 percent of the market; Apple, with 12 percent; and Huawei with 11 percent. While the iPhone 8 would capture the usual upgrade cycle, the iPhone X - which looks completely different than any iPhone before - would spur many long-time holdouts into not only buying a new iPhone, but paying a big premium. The move to 64 GB costs an extra $6 per unit, while the A11 Bionic is $5 more expensive compared to previous year since it's built on Taiwan Semiconductor's newer 10-nanometer FinFET process. This is quite a price difference from last year's model. Face ID works together with another feature, which Apple has named the "TrueDepth camera".


However, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus component cost is notably economical than the iPhone X, which will be available with a starting retail price of $999 for the base model.

Apple's latest lineup is rated IP67, meaning they can survive a splash of rain or a quick dip in water down to 1 m (3.3 ft). For people who aren't used to spending more than $700 to $800 for a phone, this can be far more than their wallet can afford.
