The Brand-New Apple iPhone 8 is Finally Here - or is it the iPhone 7S?

Apple just released three new handsets to mull over. On top of the pedestal is the iPhone X, boasting its edge-to-edge display. While the other two - the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus sport a traditional design that looks and feels exactly similar to the iPhone 7 Series.

If you are thinking of upgrading your iPhone 7, we’ll make it easier for you by comparing these two different yet similar phones with each other.

Same Display, Different Look

If you looked at it above and below, the iPhone 8 has similar bezels, home buttons, and display size as the iPhone 7. The only difference this time is that the 8 now comes with a True Tone feature that lets you adjust the screen’s contrast. Another thing that sets the iPhone 8 apart from the 7 is the all-glass exterior on the front and back that supports wireless charging.

Wireless Charging at Last!

At last! the iPhone 8 comes with a wireless charging technology but that doesn’t mean it ditches the standard charging through a lightning cable. The wireless charging works by placing the device on a QI pad that regenerates the battery juice. While Apple may have granted the plight of its fans with the wireless charging, they haven’t really made any improvements to the battery capacity.

Same dual cameras…but wait, there’s more!

Apple is known for making innovative improvements on the cameras in its phones for many years, and this can also be seen in the iPhone 8. It may have the same number of sensors and megapixels as the 7 but its cameras pack more awesome features this time, wielding an optimal image stabilization and improved autofocus. Aside from that, the front camera now has a Portrait Lighting Mode that will allow you to play with your creativity!

Packs More Power!

Another noteworthy upgrade for the iPhone 8 is its all-new chipset, namely the A11 Bionic, which performs more efficiently, in turn, improving its battery life and power. This can run more demanding apps, play graphics-intensive games, and offers a cutting edge AR and VR experience. Also, the chipset is the fastest one that Apple has ever developed, fast and powerful enough to support AR or augmented reality. With AR taking too much processing power, iPhone 8 can handle this task with no sweat.

The iPhone 8 starts at $699 (around 2,935 RM) for the 64-GB model, while its Plus variant is $799 (approx. 3,355 RM). As for the release date, it will be available for pre-order starting September 15 and will ship on September 22.

Verdict

Truly, the iPhone 8 is one of those phones that has many surprises up its sleeve. It may have a glaring resemblance to the iPhone 7 but it has a lot of under-the-hood improvements that consumers should take a closer look at.

If the Apple iPhone 8 is Apple's most anticipated smartphone, its rumored more powerful sibling should receive its own fair share of attention as well. Despite lacking official confirmation, people are just as interested in getting to know more about the still mysterious Apple iPhone 8's more up-gunned variant. For a start, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus should incorporate a redesigned OLED display screen. In addition, the display actually covers the entire front of the device.  

At the same time, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus has been rumored to be recipient of 3D Touch and True Tone display that you see on Apple iPad Pro. Previously, there was a rumor about how Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus would get 2K AMOLED display but that never happened. However, most observers speculate Apple is actually holding out for Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. If Apple is serious about introducing a real radical change, a switch to AMOLED can be seen a great start. 

The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is believed to incorporate a dual-camera arrangement in a vertical alignment instead. Furthermore, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus should feature a highly advanced front-facing camera that is capable of doing either facial or iris recognition. In fact, serial Apple leaker, Ming-Chi Kuo, believes Apple Pay will include one of these security methods. If this is correct, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus can be the biggest game-changing smartphone in Apple's history.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus in the Philippines – Familiar yet cutting-edge

The best thing about getting an iPhone 8 Plus is that incorporates characteristics of the older iPhones such as the 6, 6s, and 7 while sharing a similar technical power to the iPhone X.

Sleek glass body

For while now, Apple has abandoned the rear glass design since the release of iPhone 4s. iPhone 8 Plus makes its long-awaited return with its beautifully crafted all glass body with the usual aluminium edge for drop protection. It comes in three new colours which are Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. The glass body provides a little more weight for the smartphone which feels secure while holding it as it is also less slippery. On top of that, it is much more durable as Apple worked directly with glass-supplier Corning to withstand abuse.

Elegantly Gold

As mentioned earlier, the iPhone 8 Plus comes in three fancy colours, particularly its Gold-coloured phone. The Rose Gold colour on the older iPhones was pretty popular, but Gold on the iPhone 8 Plus can be seen as less pink as well as less gaudy compared to the older models. To simply put it, the colour is made to look more elegant and refined. Also, the colour changes under ambient lighting.

Six-core A11 Bionic Processor

Thanks to the six-core A11 Bionic processor, you can surf the net, text, or email seamlessly. Capable of utilising all six-cores simultaneously as it features a second-generation performance controller, the iPhone 8 plus delivers a significantly higher performance compared to the A10 Fusion.

In-house designed graphics processing unit

With Apple designing its GPU, it has resulted in an astounding 30% boost in performance. For the first time ever, they are utilising their own custom silicon to power the graphics on the iPhone 8 Plus since they stopped using London-based GPU-supplier Imagination. With the incorporation of the new Metal 2 API found in iOS11, you can anticipate various gameplay, machine learning, and AR applications on the iPhone 8 Plus.

Stereo speakers

Compared to the previous models, the iPhone 8 Plus is equipped with stereo speakers by repurposing the headphone speaker that is 25% louder as well as delivering a deeper bass. Other than that, they have a good overall balance minus the irritation, peaking frequencies which can often be heard on an old radio. The sound is rather crisp along with a nice brilliance in the highs without coming off as irritatingly sharp. As for the phone speakers, it offers a more low-frequency sound.

True Tone Display

Previously seen only on the iPads and iPad Pros, True Tone utilises the temperature of the room and adjusts to the display on the iPhone 8 Plus which also reduces stress on the eye. Users will not be able to notice the changes as it is subtle, but it makes a huge difference from prolonged usage of the smartphone.

Performance controller

This feature helps decide where your battery life goes which simply speeds it up or down whenever you need it.
