Steve Kovach, Senior Correspondent at Business Insider, give Chedheads his formal review of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. After spending several days with each, his review is that the phone is great and functions like an elevated version of the iPhone 7. But it's missing some key features included in the upcoming release of the iPhone X, like facial recognition software. Kovach notes the different feel of the iPhone 8 due to the glass back, and its added weight which makes it feel sturdier. Kovach also notes how much faster the phone is when using applications. See Kovach demo the phones live on air with Cheddar hosts Kristen Scholer and Tim Stenovec. The phone is great if you want an upgrade, he says, but if you want the most elevated iPhone yet, wait for the X.
