iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7 what’s new?
Just a few days back Apple announced the 2 new iPhone’s (X & 8). But in this article we focus on iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7!
Before directly going on the comparison of this year’s iPhone 8 & 8 Plus with the previous year’s iPhone 7 & 7 Plus, let’s just say which iPhone is better for your short answer on “Which iPhone is better?” Of-course the iPhone X without a doubt, but talking about only 7 & 8, iPhone 7 plus is the best, nothing has changed much! So basically you are getting the same phone in much lower price! Let’s finally start the battle with iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7!
Now as that’s out of the way! Lets move on the main part of this article, the iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7. We are going to compare 4 models of the iPhone that includes the previous year iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus, and this year’s latest release iPhone 8 and 8 plus.
The Basic Difference:
The main difference between all the 4 units 2 models is that the iPhone 8 uses much faster processor then the iPhone 7! 8 uses A11 chip where 7 users get A10 chip! But according to the Apple their noticeable difference is something like the image shown:
But now let’s see what are the main changes under the hood:
Color & Capacity
Both the iPhone 8 and 8 plus comes with 3 colour, GOLD, SILVER and SPACE GRAY. But the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s are available with 4 colours which are Rose Gold, Gold, Black and Jet Black. The most irrelevant thing that apple did this year has to be choosing the storage sizes. You can get the 8 and 8 plus with 64 GB or 256 GB. Where as the 7 and 7s are available in 32GB and 128GB. From September of this year apple took discontinued the 64 GB and 256 GB storage of iPhone 7 and 7 plus.
Display and Weight
Apple claims that they increase the display size of the all new iPhone 8 and 8 plus but the truth is they are not only identical with the iPhone 7 and 7s but physically looking display wise they are the same. But 8 and the 8 plus are fractionally larger but looking in bare eyes they don’t makes any difference! As for the weight it feels totally the same. But in practicality the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus weights a bit heavier as Apple used the glass back! Iphone 8 weights 148 gram, followed by iPhone 8 plus 202 grams, 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch display respectively. Where as iPhone 7 weights 138 grams and iPhone 7 plus 188 grams. And display 4.7inch and 5.5 inch!
The only major change is the chip. The iPhone 8, 8 plus and 10 share the same A11 Bionic chip with 64-bit architecture. Neural engine. Embedded M11 motion coprocessor. Where as the 7 and 7 plus share A10 Fusion chip with 64-bit architecture. Embedded M10 motion coprocessor. In short as mentioned earlier the iPhone 8 and 8 plus are fast.
Camera & Other
Keeping things short Camera of all the 4 iPhones is the same! The new iPhone comes with the all new iOs installed. Prices of iPhone 7 and 7s respectively is 549$ and 669$ And the iPhone 8 and 8 plus is 699$ and 799$.
You are simplifying getting the same phone with just a better processor with a higher price. IS IT WORTH IT? The answer is if you are new to iPhone and/or upgrading from iPhone 6 then yes if not, then wait for iPhone 10!
