The beauty of the phones is impressive but again, when you start using them you realise that, compared to the 7S and the 7S Plus, they don’t offer much more than incremental upgrades.
So the all-important question. Should one buy them?
Yes. Rs 64,000 for the base version of the 8, and Rs 73,000 for the 8 Plus.
What phone would you recommend to someone who might want the same sort of experience but does not want to buy the 8 or the 8 Plus?
The OnePlus 5 at Rs 33,000 is a very good buy. And you should also wait for the Google Pixel 2, which is going to be unveiled on October 4. (Google has not yet announced how much it is going to cost.)
