Excellent job on the highlights!

I think it's kind of disappointing that the iPhone 8s look exactly like the 7s but at least it has wireless charging. That's good to see.

As for the X, I was impressed with some things but not others. It's a good start, it makes me think of the Essential Phone since both look the same, but it's like a big brother to it lol.

The iPhone 8 does not look very interesting, unless the iPhone X FaceID system doesn't work properly. We will have to wait for the reviews :unhappysweat:
