iPhone X vs iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7: How do they compare?

How the new iPhone X and iPhone 7 stack up against the year-old iPhone 7Apple

The iPhone X is finally here, and so too is a new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Apple revealed the new handsets during its first ever media event at the Steve Jobs Theatre in California, and below we have lined them up against their predecessors to help you decide which to buy.

Whereas in previous years it was simply a case of choosing either the regular-sized new iPhone, or the larger Plus version, now Apple has three new models all vying for your attention - and your wallet.

It is best to think of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus as updates to the 7 and 7 Plus - what the 7S and 7S Plus would have been, if Apple hadn't messed with its own naming structure.

Then, to celebrate the iPhone's 10th birthday we have the iPhone X, a new flagship handset with a new design, a bigger screen, plenty of new features - and a huge new price tag.
