A woman in Taiwan has claimed that the iPhone 8 Plus (64GB) variant burst open while she had put the device on charging using the original Apple charger.

It won't be cheap. These are iPhones for those who need to upgrade their phones now; those who can't justify forking out a premium for the iPhone X; and those who just want an ol' reliable iPhone.

Surging smartphone maker Huawei Technologies has for the first time surpassed Apple Inc.as the brand of choice for Chinese smartphone buyers, in the latest sign the USA giant is losing its luster in the world's largest market, according to a new survey. The tech outlet ifeng includes images of the Taiwanese owner's device in its report.

"Our survey helps confirm our thesis that the rich feature set and differentiated design of the iPhone X will enable a mix shift toward it despite its significant price premium", RBC said in a research note obtained by TheStreet.

"It's intermittent - on some calls you can perfectly notice it on others no problem", reads an Apple user's comment on an official discussion board.

Apple is working on getting those problems fixed, so the iPhone 8 will run like it's supposed to. It makes iPhone better than before. Similar allegations were made on Apple after it had launched its latest iteration of iPhone operating system iOS 11.

Big Picture: Investors are suddenly skittish about Apple's new phones, but they could be overlooking the iPhone X's ability to spur additional sales.

In order to see if this indeed is a widespread issue, we will certainly have to wait as Apple concludes its investigations. The savings will be issued in 24 monthly bill credits, so you'll receive them in installments over the life of the device as you pay it off.

Meanwhile, KGI Securities and Susquehanna Financial Group on Monday joined the parade of analysts raising caution flags about iPhone X production. It is also important to remember that this is going to be the day when the iPhone X will officially hit retail stores.

AT&T has confirmed that it will be selling the iPhone X, and pre-orders begin on October 27 with availability starting November 3. Here are few points which help you to choose the flawless iPhone depending on the budget. If you think paying an extra INR 5000 (around INR 28,000) you can get an iPhone 6, please don't consider buying iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have a generation old processor, camera compared to the iPhone SE.

Thanks Zing Gadget for loaning us the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus for this hands on!

Update: Added pricing details for AT&T.
