iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7

Later and greater

The changes to iPhone 8’s design set it instantly apart from the models which came before it. The aluminium casing has gone and it’s now surrounded according to Apple, by the strongest glass they’ve ever used. This glass provides more than strength and good looks– it also allows the phone to feature wireless charging – and regain 50% of charge in just half an hour.

Smarter. Faster. Better?

And there’s more to iPhone 8 than just meets the eye. It’s new six-core A11 chip is an impressive improvement on the A10 – giving you a faster, smoother performance.
However, iPhone 7 definitely has a lot going for it as well. It’s still a phone at the top of the line, and some will no doubt still enjoy the more classic iPhone look. Both phones are water and dust resistant, and have excellent quality cameras, but if you want the more sophisticated phone – iPhone 8 is the one for you.
