The most expensive handset of Apple is iPhone X, which was recently launched. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are the other new smartphones announced at Apple’s event, and while they’re still expensive (but not as fancy as the iPhone X), they offer a redesigned all-glass back, an improved camera, slightly faster hardware, and a longer-lasting battery.
How does the iPhone X, Apple’s most powerful iPhone yet, compared to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus? This is iPhone X vs. iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 8 Plus specs comparison for all the crucial differences you need to know about. Neither phones mess around when it comes to internal storage. The iPhone X and both iPhone 8 are available in 64GB and 256 GB flavors, which is ample room for apps, games, music, movies, and any other media you might want to store offline.
But the playing field isn’t entirely even. iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus likely have 3GB of RAM (unconfirmed) compared to the iPhone 8’s 2GB. That won’t be especially noticeable day-to-day, but depending on how aggressively you juggle apps and browser tabs, it might cut down on the number tasks that relaunch in the background.
The iPhone X’s 5.8-inch OLED screen has a resolution of 2,436 x 1,125-pixel (with a pixel density of 458 pixels-per-inch); Apple calls it a Super Retina HD screen. The individual pixels in screen brighten or darken as needed, producing an image with superior contrast and color accuracy. Apple’s True Tone technology automatically adjusts the white balance to surrounding lighting conditions.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus make do with a more conventional 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes, respectively. The iPhone 8 has a 1,334-by-750 pixel resolution (326ppi), and the iPhone 8 Plus has a 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution (401ppi). They have LCD IPS screens, which doesn’t quite match up to the iPhone X’s OLED. Despite the fact that iPhone 8 Plus have a smaller 5.5-inch screen size, it’s actually a bigger phone overall compared to the 5.8-inch iPhone X.
Both iPhone 8 devices have fingerprint-scanning home button that has become one of the iPhone’s most recognizable features. But iPhone X replaces the home button with an on-screen “software bar” across the bottom of the screen. Swipe up from the bottom to get to the home screen, and it disappears when it’s not in use. It doesn’t support Touch ID, meaning the iPhone X can’t be unlocked with a fingerprint. It can be unlocked with a face, however, because of the inbuilt sensor module.
The iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus are nearly an even match when it comes to battery life, though the iPhone 8 will last less long. Apple doesn’t typically disclose battery capacity, but this thing got to know that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have 1,821 mAh and 2,675 mAh batteries, respectively.
The iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus both have dual-camera setups, and they are almost equally matched. The iPhone X’s primary consists of two sensors, one wide-angle 12-megapixel lens with a f/1.8 aperture and a telephoto 12-megapixel lens with a f/2.4 aperture. The iPhone 8 Plus has the same setup, but the telephoto 12-megapixel lens has a f/2.8 aperture, and only the primary wide-angle lens features OIS. While iPhone 8 trades down for a single 12-megapixel rear shooter.
Despite the fact that iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus all ship with the same software onboard — Apple’s iOS 11 — the iPhone X has a few extras. Animoji, an animated emoji feature, taps the iPhone X’s depth-tracking camera to generate custom animated messages that use your voice and reflect your emotions.
iPhone X is more than just another iPhone. It’s a top-to-bottom redesign with a bright and colorful edge-to-edge OLED screen, depth-sensing front cameras, wireless charging, and the most powerful Apple-designed processor ever engineered. In other words, it’s the Cadillac of smartphones, and that’s reflected in its price tag too.
At the end, because of all extra functions and premium layouts evaluate to iPhone 8 plus, one needs to go for iPhone X rather than iPhone 8 Plus if their pocket permits.
