Here's exactly why the iPhone 8 is so expensive

Posted September 27, 2017

Apple's stock has slumped since details of the phone came out on September 12, off by about five per cent since then.

AppleInsider also pointed out that the OLED display on the iPhone X might possibly draw more power than the usual iPhone LCD display.

Some took the news as a sign of weak demand for the phone, but Digitimes noted in its report that Apple used a similar strategy for the iPhone 7 previous year. While the battery may not be that big of a size, it's vital to know that the iPhone X is slimmer than the iPhone 8 Plus. Meanwhile, preorders for the iPhone X will begin on October 27, as announced by Apple. This was hard to believe as the iPhone X is nowhere near being an affordable smartphone. The chance of a random person getting into your phone using the facial recognition is 1 to 1,000,000. The iPhone X is very sleek and nice looking. The phone lacks a home button as well. All three phone also features wireless charging.

The iPhone 8 hasn't been hit by such problems, with many models available immediately now. Its components cost $288.08, including a new camera system that costs $32.50.

Now this isn't anything new - Apple's 3D touch is pressure responsive.

The recent release of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus saw Apple increase the price of both devices with many left wondering how exactly this could be justified.

The new rear camera is where the iPhone 8 Plus really comes into its own. AAPL stock continued the slide from where it began at the start of the month. The innovative Face ID feature is the reason behind such high demand, Kuo later shared.

It is important to note that the TrueDepth camera is the most unique camera featured on any phones.

Interestingly, the iPhone 8 Plus is said to come with a 2675mAh battery that is contrary to what we saw on iFixit. Even though it is the second-largest smartphone maker by market share, it rakes in the most profit out of all of the manufacturers.
