iPhone 8/8+/X Accessories Discussion (Cases/Screen, Glass Protector etc)

Who have already ordered their cases in view of getting their phones say in the next 2 weeks?

numerous case makers seem to have already started selling their cases...as usual hope PSAJ don't screw up their case like the ip7 saga....rainbow effect + small opening restricting MFI cables.

totallee seems value for money now...on my watchlist before PSAJ this time round.

Been using psaj since ip5s.

1 yr purchase 1 case only. Good, last long and protect my phones well.

So, as usual, I will wait for psaj.

But b4 psaj is out, will jus get a temporary tpu case n tank.

Been going for the HardGraft sleeves for all my iPhones since 2012. Might go back to Vaja this year. What puts me off about Vaja is their long prep and shipping time but since this year the X is only coming in early Nov, might order if Vaja releases their cases early. Eyeing Nodus also. Cheaper than Vaja and seems to be just as good.

Do you guys think it'll be a better idea to split between iPhone 8 and X?

Yes you should since both are different models technically and there will be 2 groups of users.

I'm more interested in getting a case that is compatible with magnetic mount and wireless charging at the same time.

Fast Charging not out of the Box

The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus finally delivered fast charging to the iPhone range years after most of Apple’s rivals. It was essential. Apple makes solid claims about performance too saying it will provide a 50% charge in just 30 minutes.



Feel free to do the math based on the iPhone model which interests you:

iPhone X - 64GB ($999), 256GB ($1,149)
iPhone 8 - 64GB ($699), 256GB ($849)
iPhone 8 Plus - 64GB ($799), 256GB ($949)
Fast wired charger - 29W ($49), 61W ($69) 87W ($79)
Lighting to USB-C cable - 1m ($25), 2m ($35)
AirPower charging matt (Unknown)
AirPods wireless charging case ($70 expected)

Ultimately iPhone fans will pay what they wish to pay, no-one is being forced to part with their money. But with new models costing over $1,000 and many fast charging Android phones costing less than the cost of Apple’s optional fast charging accessories, it is understandable if some think Tim Cook has finally gone too far...
