Overview

The iPhone 8 launch saw the release of the iPhone X which pretty much shadowed the 8 and 8 Plus. The 8 introduced micro improvements at a increased price margin compared to the iPhone 7.

Design

The iPhone 8 looks near identical to the iPhone 7 with the distinct glass back, a larger rear camera and absence of antenna lines the only external difference. Although the X featured Apples facial recognition, Apple decided to keep the home button on the iPhone 8. The 8 is also only available in Gold, Space Grey and Silver.

Performance

The iPhone 8 launch saw the introduction of Apples new A11 ‘Bionic’ chipset. The same chipset seen in the 8 Plus and iPhone X alongside the same 6-Core CPU, 6-Core GPU and M11 motion coprocessor. The result is a visibily faster iPhone 8. Apple claims the speed to be up to 25% quicker than a 7 at higher core speeds. The iPhone 8 has the same 12 megapixel wide-angle camera with f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilisation plus a 7 megapixel, f/2.2 camera on the front, but the A11 Bionic Chipset gets much more out of it than the 7.

Battery

In typical Apple fasion, the battery is the biggest let down on the iPhone. The Apple iPhone 8 gives you the same battery life than you would expect from an iPhone 7, with the difference being the addition of Apples quick charging as well as wireless charging. Apple claims up to 50% charge in 30 minutes.
