    Apple has formally announced the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus! Any of you considering this over the iPhone X?

    Our company started disallowing BYOD...

    I'm sure HR will let us choose between the new Samsung "S" and the iPhone 8 next year

    Leaning towards the iphone 8 Plus if iPhone X comes out too much even after our carrier subsidized the device. Excited to see reviews for the 8/8/X ;):)

    I suppose it also helps for the ones upgrading from the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus that their existing cases will still fit the iPhone 8 / 8 Plus.

    Wireless charging, but there seems to still be a charging port at the bottom of the phone?

    I slept through the keynote but did they mention if wireless charging will work with a rugged case like an Otterbox?

    checking the size/ form factor compared to the 7 and 7 plus. almost the same but still slightly different haha

    so casing for 7 and 7 plus will still fit? then that is good!

    The lightning port will still work to charge and for earpods purposes. The wireless charging is an option (the charging mat will be sold separately and won't be available until 2018).

    Im excited to see the specs and technology behind the new A11 chip together with their Neural Engine and their first in-house designed Apple GPU. So many questions in mind like what will happen with PowerVR? Now that Apple is in control for both CPU and GPU what can we expect more for their upcoming chipset? Etc. :whistle:o_O;):)

    Depends on your pad...

    I bought a few when I was using an S6.

    Samsung's pad was strong enough the pass through my office desk.
    Cheap unbranded one's I bough from Lazada can on only pass through my phone case and stand (around .5 cm thickness)...

    Lightning port will still work, best part of it... fast-charge (finally)

    Forget wireless charging: The new iPhones fast-charge to 50% in 30 minutes | BGR

    Not as fast as Android, but still better...

    I'm sure you'll also use date cable when transferring pictures and 4K videos from iPhone to PC/MAC

    I'll be among the few here gunning for the iPhone 8. Not happy with the overall look of the iPhone X from hardware to software. :confused:

    The new gold iPhone 8 looks absolutely stunning. It really makes me want to go for a finish that isn't Space Gray or Black for once.

    ...In fact, I've more than made up my mind... :D

    It does seem to have subtle hints of Rose Gold. Just the way I like it.
