    Yes, all the excitement is over the X, the 8 although an incremental improvement is probably the more interesting device.

    I am not sure I like the model offerings this time around. I feel like iPhone 8 will be forgotten because of the X model. Time will tell.

    Wireless charging is honestly amazing, I'm glad Apple have finally done it, hopefully everyone will now follow. I had wireless charging on a Lumia 920 which is 5 years old, I've missed it with my last 2 phones.

    The number of comments on this thread compared to the one on the X shows just how little interest the 8 is getting.

    Bit of a PR blunder since the X isn't ready for release yet they should of waited and branded these 7S not 8.

    They should of also called the X the iPhone Pro or something at least then the products would clearly differentiated and people wont have to question what happened to the iPhone 9

    Yes they shouldn't have announced both at the same time, people with the 8 won't really feel like they have the latest device but apple kind of backed themselves into a corner. They needed to do something special for the 10th anniversary but probably knew people weren't going to swallow a £/$1000 phone.
