IPhone X is more expensive than the iPhone 8. The iPhone X has a 5.8-inch edge to edge display vs. iPhone 8, which has a 4.7-inch screen. iPhone X has a dual-lens, 12 MP camera with a larger opening on its telephoto lens than the iPhone 8.
iPhone 8 does not have the feature of the portrait and portrait lighting depth of field effects. iPhone x offers ID facial recognition. iPhone X eliminates the home button for a gesture style interface, while the iPhone 8 gets to keep it.
One of the main differences between the iPhone X and iPhone 8 is the price. iPhone X is more expensive because it is new. The screen is noticeably larger but the device is still very compact. The screen size is one of the reasons why people decide to get the iPhone X over the iPhone 8 but those who do not like big screens will probably stick to their iPhone 8 longer.
One of the things that may convince people to purchase the iPhone X is the fact that it has face ID. You no longer have to place your fingertips similarly to what you do when you are using the iPhone 8. Also, the iPhone X makes it possible to view videos better as compared to the iPhone 8.

Cost wise, the iPhone X is 40% more expensive than the iPhone 8 and there are many reasons for the price increase. The iPhone X has a larger screen at 5.8 inches, compared to the 4.7 inch screen on the iPhone 8. Despite the increase in screen size, the iPhone X is still compact, only 17% heavier than the iPhone 8.
However, features the iPhone X lacks is the fingerprint Touch ID, which the 8 has. The iPhone X does have the advantage of the face ID, but the notch at the top makes viewing videos different than what the normal phone user may be used to.
