    Seriously? For $700 and up? For a stinking phone? No thanks.

    As pointed out elsewhere, the display on the 8 is not very bright, which will affect its visibility in bright light situations.

    The future of the iPhone is buttonless, and you can either accept this reality now or be miserable later when Apple stops making iPhones with a home button on them because, like the headphone jack, it's never coming back.
