iPhone 11 Pro vs iPhone 8

Which one is best for you?

Apple’s big 2017 release was something of an incremental improvement on its predecessor, iPhone 7. The all-glass construction marked it out as something new, however. Two years later a great deal has changed, and Apple’s latest release is a powerful and feature-rich smartphone with Apple’s characteristic style on full display.

The glass on iPhone 11 Pro is tougher, and an attractive matte finish. iPhone 8’s 4.6-inch LCD screen is outshone by the stunning 5.8-inch OLED display sported by iPhone 11 Pro, and Apple’s much-admired Haptic Touch replaces iPhone 8’s 3D Touch. Beneath the screen is a more powerful phone altogether – with a 3100 mAh battery and 4GB of RAM, compared to iPhone 8’s 1821 mAh cell and 2GB of RAM. The processor has been upgraded too, with Apple’s potent new A13 Bionic chip ensuring every task is smooth and seamless.

Perhaps the biggest upgrade is the camera – iPhone 8’s serviceable 12-megapixel single-lens snapper gives way to a versatile triple-lens camera array on iPhone 11 Pro, featuring a 12-megapixel Wide camera, a 12-megapixel Ultra Wide camera, and a 12-megapixel Telephoto lens, plus a 12-megapixel front camera to replace the 7-megapixel selfie camera on iPhone 8.
