Apple’s new version of iPhone, i.e., iPhone8, in spite of the eight suffix, is not the most updated amongst the existing Smartphone. It is just the “S” update of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Apart from a couple of hardware changes, their shape factors are unaltered from the iPhone 6!
What are the new highlights in iPhone 8 that make them justified?
It is equipped with the new Apple A11 Bionic chipset, which Apple said, is 25 percent quicker than the iPhone 7’s A10 processor.
In addition, the iPhone 8 has the first Apple-manufactured graphics chip that was outlined mainly for Apple’s graphics engine, Metal 2.
In spite of the fact that the display on the iPhone 8 models is comparable to that of iPhone 7 LED screens, still, some key highlights make the difference.
It introduces iPad Pro-just True Tone to the iPhone, which improves the color balance as per the need. Moreover, support of high dynamic range (HDR) video content with Dolby Vision and HDR10 covers a broader scope of light and color for more realistic pictures from HDR-empowered videos from Netflix, iTunes, and Amazon.
These features of iPhone 8 are not enough to trade off iPhone 7 from the lane.
Camera-wise, there are no amendments from the iPhone 7. The iPhone 8 has the same 12MP wide-angle lens with optical picture stabilization on the back and the 7MP front camera that the iPhone 7 has. It is a similar case with iPhone 8 Plus; it has a same back dual lens camera of the iPhone 7.
But, Apple promises a better video and photograph upgrades from the iPhone 8’s A11 Bionic chip. In any case, do not exchange your iPhone 7 for an iPhone 8 for the cameras. They have the same internal structure of hardware.
This is one of the most significant update for iPhone 8 as compared to the previous versions. It is the feature of wireless charging. This is the motivation behind why the iPhone 8 models now have glass backs instead of the iPhone 7’s aluminum back.
Utilizing the Qi remote charging standard, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus users can, at last, utilize Qi accessories for charging their cell phones without connecting them to the socket.
Although, charging using Qi still requires that your cell phone to lay over a charging mat that should always be connected. Moreover, the iPhone 8’s remote charging is slower than other contending telephones like the Samsung and many others.
In case you are not enthusiastic about wireless charging, another contrast between the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 8 is the feature of wired fast charging.
At the same time, since battery life is about the same, Apple’s execution of remote charging on the iPhone 8 does not merit dumping your iPhone 7 for.
To conclude, if you have an iPhone 7 and you do not have the pressure to get the most recent and utmost from Apple every year, at that moment it is not appropriate upgrading to the iPhone 8.
