The iPhone X lands for pre-order in the UK on the 27th October and is Apple’s latest landmark release, launched to mark the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone.

It certainly looks fantastic. It has a sleek ‘all-glass’ design and a 5.8-inch Super Retina display.

It’s packed with loads of new features like wireless charging, an improved rear camera w ith dual optical image stabilisation, and innovative Face ID.

How much does the iPhone X cost?

As you can expect, it’s not cheap.

It’s the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever produced with a starting price of £999.

On a monthly contract you’re looking at around £72.99/month, plus £99.99 up front.

How does iPhone X compare to iPhone 7/8?

Obviously, the new features on the iPhone X are fantastic and a big leap forward from previous models.

But, can you personally justify the jump in price for these additional features?

You can get the same deal on an iPhone 7 8GB data for £33/month or on an iPhone 8 8GB data for £42/month.

The iPhone 7 and 8 are not that far behind the X in terms of tech. They still pack extremely powerful hardware, with great speed and overall performance.

They don’t look too dissimilar either. Size-wise, there’s nothing really in it, however the X has an edge to edge screen and no Home Button.

Our Verdict

The new features on the X fantastic, without a doubt. If you have money-to-burn and you’re really into phone-tech, then go for it, you only live once.

But, if you’ve got bills to pay and mouths to feed, then it’s probably the sensible idea to go for an iPhone 7 or 8 as you’re still getting one hell of a good phone at a much better price.
