The long awaited iPhone 8 hasn’t been doing well in the market sales recently according to a report by Reuters which points to a new client KeyBanc Capital Markets.
KeyBanc Capital claims that the iPhone 7 is selling more units than the iPhone 8 and according to their analyst, a good number of customers are choosing the less expensive iPhone 7 instead of the iPhone 8.
In the report, customers chose the iPhone 7 over the 8 due to it’s “lack of significant enhancements” and also because it’s price played a vital role in their purchasing decisions.
The iPhone 7 is now at $549 (Shs.2,006,595), and the iPhone 8 starts at $699 (Shs.2554,,845) which is $150 difference.

There are still a number of loop holes in the report survey since no clear sales numbers were provided and the data only included responses from wireless carriers and not customers who bought new phones at Apple Stores or online.
However, one should remember that the iPhone 8 didn’t receive the much needed attention it wanted around the smartphone sphere bubble. Many people have jumped straight to the iPhone X saga and haven’t given much thought about the 8.
Was this a big mistake by Apple to release two models at relatively the same time or have people finally opened their eyes to other better smartphone products in the market.
Let’s face it, Apple’s iPhone is a good a product but its overrated. It won’t be surprising if the iPhone X takes a simialr down turn as the 8 did.
Do you think the iPhone 8 is worth your money? Or would you rather buy the 7 and wait for the iPhone X to drop prices. Give us your thoughts by hitting that comment button.
