Should you wait for iPhone 8?

Are you looking for a high-end smartphone, that can carry out your daily digital needs in style? Well, there are quite a few options available on the platter, but everything can wait when the next iPhone 8 is on its way. Not everyone would agree, however, we have some compelling reasons that will make you think twice about iPhone 8 before you make that next purchase.

Why Wait?

Because you are reasonable

If you are one of those smart buyers who upgrade their device once every three years, it makes sense to wait for the iPhone 8, rather than going for the iPhone 5 or iPhone 6, whose software support will someday come to an end. The 8 will likely get four years of support, i.e. four years of bug fixes, new operating systems and security patches.

3D Front Cam

Another reason to wait for the iPhone 8 could be the talked-about front-facing camera with 3D capabilities, which is sure to be an upgrade over the iPhone 7. The 8 is also likely to come with the new A11 processor that will render processes much faster than its predecessors, while supporting a higher battery life, according to reports.

Wireless Charging!

Expect 3 GB RAM with faster NAND storage. Interestingly, the iPhone 8 is also thought to be supporting wireless charging.


Why you shouldn’t Wait..

Too Expensive

On the flip-side, you may have to shell out close to $1000, which is significantly higher than the iPhone 7 at $649. Also, it may have a big 5.8-inch OLED screen.

Nature of iOs 11

If smaller screens hold a greater appeal to you, then the iPhone 8 may not be to your liking. Another reason would be the overall impression of iOS 11.0 on you. The iPhone 8 will be running on iOS 11.0 right out of the box, but it’s not certain to appeal all segments of users.

Although the iPhone 8 will surely be a neat upgrade, it won’t be a bad idea to also consider other very worthy options in your price range. And perhaps you could get yourself a great deal out of your old device by selling your it on Cashify with a guaranteed sale within 48 hours. (iOS app here | Android app here).
