iPhone 8 vs iPhone 6

New charger, new hardware, new look  

iPhone 8 is a great leap forward for Apple, both in terms of design and in terms of device capability. The A11 Bionic chip serves to make this more powerful than any previous iPhones yet. Compared to iPhone 6’s A8 chip, you might find that iPhone 8 is leaps and bounds ahead in terms of speed and functionality. This should enable it to handle the augmented reality apps Apple are looking to develop.

The new, sleek look of iPhone 8 also puts it in a different league to iPhone 6. iPhone 8 is completely encased in glass – which Apple claim is their ‘most durable ever.’

Time to upgrade?


Unsurprisingly, iPhone 8 wins out when it comes to camera quality and hardware capabilities – if you’re looking to upgrade from iPhone 6 to iPhone 8 you won’t be disappointed.
