iPhone 8 instead of GR III?

Instead of upgrading from my GR II to an eventual GR III, I am seriously considering getting a new Apple 8 Plus phone... unless the GR III has a cell phone in it with Verizon service.

Why? The Apple 8 hardware auto-HDR processing MAY be good enough to get me away from tedious RAW Lightroom work. Most RAW editing I do is pretty basic... reduce highlights, lighten shadows, sharpen a bit, add a little clarity.  Apple may have automated this, we'll see.

The other big, big advantage is being able to send images immediately to others. Also, the teeny little lens gives total depth of field... no need to focus a cell phone! And I personally like total depth of field rather than bokeh effcts.

Downside? My GR II is darn near instant on with excellent, excellent automatic controls. Cell phones are really clunky in comparison!
