iPhone 8 Review: Features, Specification and Pricing

Published

on

Apple’s representatives took the stage in a mega event on September 12 where they made all the important announcements on everything that Apple has launched. And among those announcements, the most important was that of new iPhone line that Apple has introduced. Yes, Apple has introduced three new iPhones namely iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. The news of three latest iPhone models might not be too surprising for many as it’s come after months of speculations and rumors. However, what might have surprised iPhone enthusiasts is the fact that Apple skipped not just iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models but also iPhone 9 as well. Apple called two of the low-end iPhone models as iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus while the high-end release was said as iPhone X – in relevance to the fact that it’s iPhone’s 10th anniversary release.

Coming back to the iPhone 8 models, there are still plenty of features that are worth talking about this new iPhone models despite the fact that it is the low-end iPhone to come this year. So, let’s dig a bit deeper into iPhone 8 features and find out what exactly does this new iPhone comes equipped with.

[wpsm_numhead num="1" style="3" heading="2"]New Glass Design[/wpsm_numhead]

The first new thing that anyone buying the iPhone 8 will notice is the fact that new iPhone features a glass design. There is reinforced glass used both the front and the back of the new iPhone and, as said and heard, this change is basically for introducing the new wireless charging feature in the new iPhones. So, Apple has chosen to introduce glass into all three of its new iPhones. And, it’s for the first time after iPhone 4 that glass is used in the body of an iPhone. However, this time it is far sturdier than what we had years ago.

[wpsm_numhead num="2" style="3" heading="2"]True Tone Display[/wpsm_numhead]

As for the display of new iPhone 8, we have Retina HD True Tone display in both the standard and Plus models. This True Tone thing is the same that Apple first introduced in its iPad Pro 9.7” models. What it actually does is that it manages white balance of your iPhone display according to the lighting in your surroundings. As far as display size is concerned, we have 4.7” display in iPhone 8 and the Plus model gets 5.5” display.

[wpsm_numhead num="3" style="3" heading="2"]Dual Camera[/wpsm_numhead]

The new iPhone 8 comes equipped with a dual lens 12MP rear camera with autofocus and OIS capabilities. There are quite a few interesting capabilities that your new iPhone camera has to offer and on top of them all is the simultaneous 8MP image and 4K video recording. Both the front and the rear cam also have face detection capabilities as well.

Besides, the camera supports deeper pixels and an all-new color filter to offer best photos. There is also a Portrait Lightning mode introduced in the camera app. It will, basically, help iPhone users to capture photos in which the images actually stand out from their background.

[wpsm_numhead num="4" style="3" heading="2"]Wireless Charging[/wpsm_numhead]

Wireless charging capabilities now come to iPhones as well with new iPhones following Qi wireless charging standard. With wireless charging now available on iPhones, you will just have to put your device on a charging pad in order to charge it. There are no wires or cables involved at all. There are charging pads available from Mophie and Belkin already in the market. So, if your iPhone is just about to arrive, get one of these third-party charging pad for your device.

[wpsm_numhead num="5" style="3" heading="2"]New A11 SoC[/wpsm_numhead]

New iPhones are really going to be amongst the most powerful devices Apple has ever introduced. All the three new iPhones come equipped with an all-new A11 SoC chip. It is basically the incremental upgrade from A10 that we had in previous iPhone 7 models. The chip gives your new iPhone all the power that it needs for processing heavier graphics and opens it up lots of new features.

[wpsm_numhead num="6" style="3" heading="2"]Augmented Reality[/wpsm_numhead]

As Apple has long been working on VR and AR, it has finally decided to hand you over an AR-capable new iPhone. In fact, the A11 chip that new iPhones feature is considered the standard for iPhones to support AR with all its powerful capabilities. These custom-calibrated iPhones extend support for immersive graphics @ 60fps. Also, the new iOS 11 comes in to support AR apps on the new iPhone 8 models.

[wpsm_numhead num="7" style="3" heading="2"]Home Button Still Exists[/wpsm_numhead]

Yes, you’ve heard it right! New iPhone 8 still comes with an iPhone 7-style Home button. The rumors about Home button going away are true as well but that’s for iPhone X model only. So, iPhone 8 still has a home button and uses Touch ID as its security feature as well.

[wpsm_numhead num="8" style="3" heading="2"]Face ID Is Not There[/wpsm_numhead]

You’d say it was Apple’s breakthrough feature that had long been expected but, just hold on, Apple promised to introduce Face ID in its next high-end iPhone release and it has done that as well. Face ID comes to iPhone X and it’s just that it has changed the naming scheme for iPhones this time around which is causing all the confusion. So, in iPhone 8 we still have the same unlocking mechanism as we had in iPhone 7 and Touch ID does a fine job there.

[wpsm_numhead num="9" style="3" heading="2"]iPhone 8 Colors[/wpsm_numhead]

The new iPhone 8 will be available in three different colors. There will be silver, space gray and gold models. And, this time we have somewhat different gold finish as well.

[wpsm_numhead num="10" style="3" heading="2"]iPhone 8 Price[/wpsm_numhead]

iPhone 8 is available for $699 and has already started shipping. It’s quite a cheap alternative to the expensive, high-end, iPhone X release from Apple. We must say you really get what you pay for and iPhone 8 doesn’t lag behind too much either.

So, that’s all we have got for you on the latest iPhone 8 release from Apple. The new iPhone is already out there and we must say it’s worth a buy with all its new features and unique offerings. Go grab one for yourself!
