The iPhone 8 and its big brother iPhone 8 Plus from Apple are the eleventh model variant of the iPhone series and have been on the market worldwide since September 22, 2022. In the second quarter of fiscal 2022, they were even the US tech company's top-selling product in its home country. Although other iPhone models such as the iPhone X and 11 have since taken over the scene, the iPhone 8 and Plus remain classics. If you've already decided that you want to buy your own iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone 8, then don't rush to your nearest Apple Store just yet! Because here are some things you should know before you buy!

Buy the iPhone 8 or rather the iPhone 8 Plus? What's the difference?

At first glance, you will probably notice that the iPhone 8 Plus is a lot bigger. In terms of materials, however, both models are much more similar. Although the sides are still aluminum, the aluminum backs of their predecessors have been swapped for Gorilla Glass. This not only looks super chic, but is also pretty shockproof, waterproof and dustproof. It also allowed Apple to integrate wireless charging for the first time.

The iPhone 8 models do not have the borderless design introduced on newer iPhones. Instead, they offer a Touch ID (fingerprint authentication) home button. While the headphone jack is still missing (and will likely never return), the iPhone 8 and Plus have 25% louder stereo speakers than the iPhone 7 models.

HD display

Both smartphones maintain the same core specs as the previous three models when it comes to displays - IPS LCD with LED backlighting. Apple has also added support for True Tone technology. This reacts to ambient lighting to ensure screen colors are accurate at all times. This is also good for your eyes.

The addition of Dolby Vision and HDR10 enables higher dynamic range when viewing content on HDR-compatible services such as Netflix, Amazon Video and iTunes.

Chipset and performance

Inside the iPhone 8 and Plus is the A11 Bionic chipset. With a six-core CPU, six-core GPU, M11 motion coprocessor, 3GB RAM (iPhone 8 Plus) and 2GB RAM (iPhone 8), both models are up to 70% faster than the A10 in the iPhone 7 and 7plus. The iPhones 8 are excellent for gaming and even AR (Augmented Reality). Both are offered with identical 64GB and 256GB storage options.

Cameras and video

In terms of cameras, the iPhones 8 Plus is far superior to the iPhone 8. iPhone 8 features a single 12MP wide-angle sensor camera with f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, has two impressive 12MP wide and telephoto cameras with f/1.8 - f/2.8 aperture, portrait mode and portrait lighting with five effects.

Nevertheless, the camera of the iPhone 8 is one of the most powerful smartphone cameras on the market. One of its best features is the ability to record 4K and slow motion videos. This makes both models ideal for professional and amateur photographers alike.
