iPhone X, 8 & 8 Plus: Why I Will Not Upgrade, 1 Key Feature Missing & "New" Camera Specs

The new iPhone were announced today. I discuss why I will not be upgrading, for the first time in a while, to the new iPhone X, 8 or 8 Plus. To be honest, there just is not much that grabs my attention. Between all three phones the two biggest features are wireless charging and dual lens image stabilization. But that's about it. Plus the rising cost of phones is getting out of control. The iPhone X, 64gb model, will run at $999....thats insane. There are slight upgrades, like 4K video at 60fps and now 240 fps at 1080p. If you are an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus user, I feel the iPhone 8/8 Plus just isnt a real upgrade. If you are a 6/6s user, that feels a bit better. The iPhone X stands on its own...but lets have this discussion below, is it really a good phone? Is it worth $999-$1299 bucks?
