Apple iPhone Reviews from WIRED and The Verge
WIRED's David Pierce reviews the new iPhone 8: No you can't unlock it with your face, but it's still a very nice phone with a great camera.
New features include ...
Wireless charging is slow, but convenient.
Battery life is about the same as Apple iPhone 7.
A new processor A11 Bionic with custom GPU and a separate chip for neural networks is reported to be fast.
Automatic white balance.
The camera and processor combined provide great capabilities for photography.
The Verge: The Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are pretty much the same as their predecessors, but with wireless charging capability, rear dual-camera system (on the iPhone 8 Plus) and Apple's new powerful A11 Bionic processor.
The Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are similar to recent predecessors iPhones, but with wireless charging capability, rear dual-camera system (on the iPhone 8 Plus) and Apple's new powerful A11 Bionic processor.
Though the iPhone 8 basically has the same software as Apple’s new iPhone X, but lacks the futuristic edge-edge design of the iPhone X and Apple’s new Face ID.
The Apple iPhone 8 will start at $699 for a 64GB model, while the 8 Plus will start at $799 for 64GB of storage. Both phones will be available for preorder starting Friday, September 15th, with a release date a week later on September 22, 2017.
