iPhone 8 vs iPhone 8 Plus

Peas in a pod

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are both impressive new offerings to the world of mobile technology. With wireless charging, the powerful new A11 Bionic chip, and Apple’s new super-strong, all-glass design, both of these phones are at the cutting edge.

Similar, but not the same

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus may look alike, but there are plenty of upgrades unique to each phone which set them apart, not only from what has come before them, but also from each other.

The most obvious difference is the size of the phones, with iPhone 8 measuring in at 4.7-inches and iPhone 8 Plus at 5.5. The displays differ slightly in that iPhone 8 Plus has a higher pixel resolution than 8, making the images on screen appear exceptionally clear. As for battery life, both models offer super-fast charging, but iPhone 8 Plus has a longer battery life.

So, while the phones naturally have a lot in common, if you’re looking for sharper images on a bigger screen and a more powerful battery, then the iPhone 8 Plus is the phone for you. If you’re looking for the same powerful hardware upgrades in a more pocket-sized package, then iPhone 8 has your name written all over it.
