The 2017 iPhones are finally here, and just as expected, we’re looking at three different devices, namely the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X. The latter is obviously the best new iPhone this year, as it packs a bunch of features that are not available on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. But, overall, the smartphones share many key components so you can expect a similar level of performance from all of them.
