iPhone 8 Specifications Review

Design & Display

When you take a quick look at this phone, you will notice that it’s a little different from the other apple phones we have seen. The rear is made from glass, not aluminum like the iPhone 7 and the other older iPhones.  The glass rear feels and looks great.  However, in terms of shape and size, this smartphone is just like the iPhone 6, 6S and 7.  When you take a look at these Apple phones from the front, it is extremely difficult to differentiate them.

This smartphone slightly thicker (7.3mm), taller (138.4mm) and wider (67.3mm) than iPhone 7.  It is also 10 grams heavier.  However, these difference may be too small for many people to notice. It is easy to hold the iPhone 8 in one hand.

This smartphone 8 comes with a 4.7 inch screen with a resolution of 750 pixels by 1334 pixels, at 326PPI.  This display has the same specifications as what you get in the iPhone 6.  However, it is much better than what you get in the iPhone 6 – it features the “True Tone Technology”.  This technology enables the iPhone 8 to monitor ambient light around it so that it can calibrate the display to best suit your environment.  You get better colors and improved contrast.  The iPhone 8 display provides the same clarity as what you get from the super AMOLED displays on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Performance & Software

This phone runs on the latest iOS version, the iOS 11.  It comes with the new A11 Bionic chipset. It is the first time that Apple has placed a processor with six cores (hexacore) in a smartphone.  Applications launch smoothly on this smartphone. You should also expect that all your games will run smoothly.  This smartphone is capable of handling heavy apps with any issues.

If you hoped that Apple will bring back the headphone jack, you will be disappointed that it was not brought back.


The iPhone 8 comes with a 12 megapixels primary camera.  This camera has all features you get in the iPhone 7 plus it can shoot 4K videos at 60fps.  It also offers 240fps slow-motion shooting at 1080 pixels.  It is also easier to use the camera on the iPhone 8 than using the camera on its predecessor.  The camera app is very simple. Images captured by this camera have good colors and detail.  The camera performance is not bad in low light areas.

The front camera is 7 megapixels. This camera can record full HD videos.

Battery Life

This phone has the same battery life as the iPhone 7. This might be a little disappointing for you if you expected better.  This phone can take you through a day of moderate to heavy usage.
