iPhone X release

Make no mistake, the new iPhone X is promising big things just as the original iPhone did ten years ago. This is going to be huge especially if you're a true Apple believer. 

For those who have been holding onto their iPhone 6 phones -- allowing the iPhone 7 series to pass them by-- this latest release from Apple might very well be worth it. That is, of course, if you're into taking pictures on your phone. We mean really into taking pictures with your phone. 

With the release fresh in our minds, we're bringing you what we know right now about pricing and options. Read on and remember that no matter what smartphone you go with, you need the best possible cell phone plan for your new phone.


iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus  

Let's start with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus first.

The pricing on the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will follow the trend of previous versions, so no surprises here. 

What's New:

  • A11 Bionic chip (which enables super fast face recognition, something you'll see is a heavy selling point in the newest generation of iPhones). 
  • Better camera with higher resolution
  • 12 megapixel in the back; 7 megapixels in the front 
  • Qi wireless charging (pronounced "Chi", you'll want to know how to ask for it because this technology of wireless charging will be everywhere soon) 

iPhone 8 Cost: 

64 GB: $699 
256 GB: $849

iPhone 8 Cost: 

64 GB: $799 
256 GB: $899


The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are ready for preorder Friday September 15 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time. You can place your preorder with Apple directly. In the meantime, you should have some plans ready to go and here is where you need to look: Compare iPhone Deals Now.

iPhone X  

Here's what we've been waiting for.

The design of the iPhone X alone is a game changer. With an "all-screen" display, yes, it is giving us all major Galaxy S8 feels.  The other major thing is the removal of the home button and addition of the face scanning sensor in order to unlock your phone. This is where that nifty A11 Bionic chip comes into play.

There are plenty of cool features similar to the iPhone 8 but the X gives so much more:

  • A11 Bionic chip (which enables super fast face recognition, something you'll see is a heavy selling point in the newest generation of iPhones). 
  • Better camera with higher resolution
  • 12 megapixel in the back; 7 megapixels in the front 
  • Qi wireless charging 
  • Better speakers with "deeper bass" 
  • Super Retina Display
  • ANIMOJI - a feature that might very well tip the scales towards a strange new dimension when it comes to making good use of the super fast facial recognition

iPhone X Cost: 

64 GB: $999

256 GB: $1,149 

Carriers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will usually break up the installments of the retail value of the phone. If you buy through your carrier (and depending on the plan you go with) you're looking at around $42 a month give or take when you pay for your new iPhone X over the course of a 24 month lease option. Again, compare cell phone carriers and find the deal  that works best for you. 


The iPhone X is ready for preorder Friday October 27 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time. You can place your preorder with Apple directly. In the meantime, you should have some plans ready to go and here is where you need to look: Compare iPhone Deals Now.
