iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7 Plus

Which phone is best for you?

What iPhone 8 may lack in size, it makes up for in fantastic new features. But how do these features measure up against iPhone 7 Plus?

Firstly, you’ll notice the difference in appearance. While, unlike iPhone X, iPhone 8 has kept the home button, iPhone 8 incorporates the same new, all-glass design, which Apple says is ‘the most durable’ glass they’ve ever used.

These designs come in the colours Silver, Gold, and Space Grey, while iPhone 7 Plus offers a little more variation, as it is available in Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, Black and Jet Black. The iPhone 7 Plus also has a 5.5-inch screen compared to the iPhone 8’s 4.7-inch.

Look past the sleek new design, and you’ll find some even bigger improvements to iPhone 8.

For starters, the phone’s glass back isn’t just nice to look at. It’s also specifically designed as a part of the new wireless charging feature, which means you’ll never have to plug your phone in again. While the battery life of iPhone 7 Plus offers more talk time, internet use, video and audio playback time, iPhone 8 charges much faster.

Both models are water and dust resistant, but while iPhone 7 Plus has a higher pixel resolution, iPhone 8’s new True Tone display offers greater colour accuracy and range.

iPhone 8’s new A11 chip puts it further ahead of iPhone 7 Plus in terms of hardware capabilities, as the A11 is a faster, more efficient upgrade on iPhone 7 Plus’s A10.

In the end, it largely comes down to whether or not you prefer a bigger screen or the very latest features. It’s down to you to decide.
