With Apple coming out with new choices soon, if I think the 8 has all I need should I get it now before the stores fill?
I do not know if I am losing support time as Apple supports for about 5 years, I have heard.
Would you agree 8 does just about all the 10 does?

This is one of those things that nobody can answer for you. Everybody is going to have their own opinion because there are difference between every phone. If the 8 does everything you want now, then go for it, if the 10 does....then go for it. But you also gotta look at repair cost, because what one 'does' is pretty much the same as the other, I mean 90% of what you can do on an 8 you can do on a 5.

Unless you have to have the newest phone to show off to others then get the one you like the most.

Apple seems to update phones for abut 5 years so if I got the 8 instead of the R I had my eye on, I would not lose support time?

I'm curious why you are worried about support time? For example, if you have a 4 year old iPhone Apple will 'support' it, but if you need repair and choose to take it to Apple to have it done it'll cost more than a used phone.....so 'support' in that instance doesn't matter. When it comes to up to date iOS, you never know, iOS 12 supports more devices than most new versions do, so you never know what Apple will do.

I have a Galaxy S5 it was only updated both security and firmware for Just 2 years then it got no more updates so I consider it a phone that is not secure that's why I would like to have a phone that is secure for as long as possible

Then go Apple, no Android I've ever seem will accept (without rooting) more than like 2 versions of Android, and when a version is done, they usually forget about it. Apple continuously updates there, security and all.

I am looking at the iphoneR or Google pixel 3 which gives you 3 years.

I agree that Apple makes the best, with a few errors. My son has the pixel and recommends it as it is updated after 3 years.
To me, updates are a very important reason to buy. I think Apple is at least 5 years.
