Portrait Lighting is a neat upgrade, and I was especially encouraged to see a variety of new features clearly designed to give creative pros the power and flexibility we need, a movement we’re seeing on iPhone and iPad Pro alike. If you’re ready for a new smartphone now, the 8 Plus is a solid upgrade and it is the best money can buy.
As for the iPhone X, I feel a bit like the kid in the infamous Stanford Marshmallow Experiment from the 1960s where the researcher sets a marshmallow in front of a child and tells him he can eat one marshmallow immediately, or, if he can wait 15 minutes, he’ll be rewarded with TWO marshmallows.
Lots of incredible photos in this review, and some great technical details I wasn't previously aware of, like the new Slow Sync flash feature.
Can't wait for my iPhone X!
