The unveiling of Apple’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus was nothing less than magic for users waiting all year for the phone’s launch.

What makes the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus different from its predecessors?

Are there any new inbuilt features that elevate the status of this phone compared to previous models? Do the new additions in the Apple iPhone series justify their exorbitant price tag?

Let’s dissect these questions in complete depth:

What Is New?

You’ll be surprised to know Apple has still retained the all-glass design and most of the same features of the iPhone 7. The company has played a safe game when it comes to design, performance, wireless charging, and other important specifications!

Which Is Better – iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus?

It can seem difficult to find the best offering from these two models seeing how similar to design specifications the iPhone 8 and Plus are to previous models. Yet there are some clear differences that help discover the verdict.

Undoubtedly, the iPhone 8 Plus has a bigger and sharper screen (401 pixels per inch compared to 326) and a bigger battery life.

The 8 Plus also features a dual-lens camera on the rear, which offers Portrait Mode and Portrait Lightening features for capturing beautiful pictures.

Wondering how high the devices will cost your wallet? Starting from $700, the iPhone 8 is a more portable and affordable option.

However, keen gamers and on-the-video watchers will love the 8 Plus’s extra screen space (and sharpness), while photographers can finally leave their heavy DSLR behind on spontaneous trips.

What about protection? Unfortunately, both phones feature an all new glass back body which demands extra protection in the form of a Kickstand Case Ring phone case. Or iPhone 8 and Plus users can browse through Shamo’s Cases collection and choose the best for their device!
