iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone 7

Which one is best for you?

If you’re looking to choose between iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 Plus, the most obvious difference is the screen. While iPhone 7 has a 4.7-inch screen, iPhone 8 Plus has the larger 5.5-inch display. It also has True Tone capability (adjusting colours so that it stays looking natural in different lights) so it’s easier on the eye and better for watching video on the go.

Another thing you’ll notice about iPhone 8 Plus is that it has a glass finish on the back. This it allows it to feature a new wireless charging system – compatible with the Qi wireless charging points that can already be found in some airports and hotels. A great feature of Apple’s own charging pads is that you can see the battery status of your Apple Watch and AirPods on the screen of your iPhone Plus alongside its own status.

iPhone 8 Plus also features dual 12-megapixel cameras that work together to give better performance in low light, create special effects and even allow 2X optical zoom. This means you can get closer to your subject without any loss of quality. It also features a new Portrait Lighting mode so you can create brilliant selfies.

And of course, iPhone 8 Plus comes equipped with Apple’s impressive A11 Bionic processor. With 6 cores working together, you’ll enjoy a smoother gaming experience than with any previous model. As for battery life, it’s on a par with iPhone 7 Plus, but now has the ability to charge more quickly – up to 50% in 30 minutes.

It’s no surprise that iPhone 8 Plus comes out better in a head-to-head against iPhone 7. If you’re not looking for a large format phone, iPhone 7 has plenty to offer – but for those extra luxurious touches (too many to mention here) iPhone 8 comes out on top.
