Whenever there are new toys, I'm excited! Now that I have new iPhone 8, there is no other way to phrase it: it IS same as 7, which was same as 6. The observation Woz pointed out when X and 8 came out:
I’m happy with my iPhone 8 — which is the same as the iPhone 7, which is the same as the iPhone 6, to me.
Here are the comparison pics:
Last year around this time, I wasn't especially impressed when I got my 7. See and/or read it at /archives/345-New-toys-iPhone-7.html. This year, I'm kinda hoping to still have my 6. The good part is, that I won't have to pay for these toys myself. If I would, I would be really really disappointed.
