The result, the Apple devices didn't do very well at all although they did outperform the Galaxy Note 8. While some reveled in the ability to make phone calls without needing to be tethered to an iPhone, nagging connectivity issues lead many reviewers to shun the hot new wearable. There's a way to carry a fancy iPhone around for a fraction of that price - and you can get the discount right on Apple's website. For its tenth anniversary, Apple has not only announced the iPhone 8, but it has also announced an anniversary model: the iPhone X.

The not-so-encouraging market response to iPhone 8 series and iPhone X has a direct impact on the company's market valuation. AppleCare+ has extended the warranty period for the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with one extra year.

According to FactSet data analysis, Apple's market value rolled down by more than $50 billion after the launch of its new products on September 22, 2017.

Apart from redesigned smaller adhesive to remove the battery, Apple has also reworked the camera sensors. It's more than double the price of the first iPhone released a decade ago. That boils down to meaning individual pixels are larger which will allow in more light, decreasing noise and providing better colours. So thumbs up to Apple for the camera. Powered by the same Apple A11 Bionic chip with 3 GB RAM it has an edge over the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

iFixit's teardown reveals the presence of a limited Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 Gigabit modem. The back side carries a Toshiba TSBL227VC3759 64 GB NAND flash storage, Apple/USI 170804 339S00397 WiFi/Bluetooth/FM radio module, along with some other modems. Now, both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus offers wireless charging capability with fast charging capability (based on Qi wireless charging). The Apple iPhone 8 features a Qi wireless charging coil at the back.

Apple says the iPhone 8's glass is the most durable ever used in a smartphone, but glass is still glass, and as the above video shows, it shattered when dropped on its face.
