Which one is best for you?
iPhone 8 was released in 2017 alongside iPhone X. Appealing to Apple traditionalists with its classic design – including bezels around the screen and the familiar home button – iPhone 8 was nonetheless loaded with natty new features which made it a real contender.
The biggest advance was a glass back – replacing the aluminium casing of previous models, and enabling wireless charging. The 12-megapixel rear camera can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second, and its powerful A12 Bionic chipset makes for a smooth streaming and gaming experience.
Although it had to contend with the buzz surrounding iPhone X, iPhone 8 is still a smashing phone. But the upgrades introduced by the launch of iPhone XR eclipse it altogether. The edge-to-edge Super Retina display, powerful A12 Bionic chip and feature-packed cameras make iPhone XR a superior phone, and a significant leap forward in both features and functionality.
