iPhone 11 vs iPhone 8

Which one is best for you?

The 2017 flagship iPhone was a quality smartphone with an impressive spec sheet, but two years is a long time in the tech world, and 2019’s iPhone 11 is a superior device, inside and out.

iPhone 8 was the first iPhone to feature an all-glass construction, and this has been carried forward for later models. iPhone 11 is clad in Apple’s toughest glass to date, and has an enhanced waterproof rating to save it from accidental dips. iPhone 8 sported an excellent 4.7-inch LCD screen, but the superb 6.1-inch display on iPhone 11 is perfect for catching up on all those box sets or immersing yourself in online gaming.

There’s a lot to love in iPhone 11’s camera array too. The 12-megapixel Wide camera on iPhone 8 has been augmented with a 12-megapixel Ultra W camera and improved AI to deliver excellent results in any conditions. Meanwhile the front camera has been upgraded from 7 megapixels to 12.

A more powerful battery, more memory, and more storage mean iPhone 11 will handle any task with ease, and Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip set ensures smooth and seamless transitions.
