The Apple iPhone 8 has the best of both worlds - it has features of the iPhone X while certain features of the iPhone 7 remains. With overhauled internals and minor tweaks in terms of its design, the iPhone 8 does everything better than ever before.
Made with Durability
Although the iPhone 8 is slightly bigger than its predecessors, it is still able to house an iPhone 7 case. The biggest change is the switch from an aluminium exterior to a glass chassis which makes it a little heavier than its predecessors. Nevertheless, it offers more durability and is even believed to have the most robust chassis compared to the other iPhones. All in all, the iPhone 8 feels more solid and high-end than its predecessors. Its compact and comfortable size allows you to slip it into your pockets easily, making it one of the best handsets on the market for convenient one-handed operation.
Same same but Different Display
Although the iPhone 8 comes with the traditional 4.7-inch display like its predecessors, it boasts a major upgrade with its True-Tone technology which features a four-channel ambient light sensor that measures the colour temperature of your environment and adjusts the display accordingly. On the other hand, the Night Mode delicately shifts the display towards the warmer, more yellow temperature as the day wears down. Also, the smartphone’s display is bright, legible in a variety of lighting conditions, and probably the best IPS LCD around for an iPhone. With that, you will be comfortable to read on for long periods, watch movies, and play games with clearer and crisper visuals.
The iPhone 8 is packing some serious cutting-edge hardware under the hood. Apple’s new A11 Bionic chip is incredibly fast. It combines two high-performance cores with four high-efficiency cores and has an Apple-designed GPU inside. With that, the device is slick and speedy when navigating and running apps and games.
Packed with an Impressive Software
Just as Apple brings improvements to the iPhone 8's familiar design, so does their latest software update, iOS 11. One of the biggest additions to its operating system comes via ARKit, which is a developer framework for augmented-reality (AR) apps and games. With AR, your iPhone’s camera can overlay game elements on furniture such as a table on your living room floor.
The iPhone 8 sports a 12-MP rear camera with an aperture of f/1.8, HDR, and optical image stabilization. It’s designed to be easy to use; just point and shoot and more often than not, you’ll get a decent photo. However, the feature that you should look forward to is the sensor which offer “deeper” pixels and further reduces cross-talk and improve accuracy. Snapping photos are larger and faster as it pulls in more light and let you capture moments more instantaneously. Even in a variety of different lighting conditions, indoor and out, you can confidently take great shots. It also features a new colour filter which is not common these days and it promises better, truer, colours across a wider dynamic range.
