iPhone 7 vs iPhone 8 Specs Comparison
Design and Display
Although the iPhone 8 comes with the traditional 4.7-inch Retina HD display like the iPhone 7, the smartphone is slightly bigger and heavier than the iPhone 7 due to Apple's big switch from an aluminium exterior to a glass chassis.
- iPhone 8 - 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm; 148g
- iPhone 7 - 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm; 138g
Nevertheless, it offers more durability and is even believed to have the most robust chassis compared to the older iPhones. Its compact and comfortable size allows you to slip it into your pocket easily, making it one of the best handsets on the market for convenient one-handed operation.
Identical Cameras, But With Improved Features
The iPhone 8 sports a 12-MP rear camera with an aperture of f/1.8, HDR, and optical image stabilization, as well as a 7-MP front camera with an aperture of f/2.2. It’s designed to be easy to use; just point and shoot and you’ll get a decent photo. These camera features can also be found on the iPhone 7, hence not much upgrade has been done to the physical cameras.
However, something you might not find in the iPhone 7 is the sensor that offers “deeper” pixels and further reduces cross-talk and improves accuracy. Snapping photos is larger and faster as it pulls in more light and lets you capture moments more instantaneously. Even in a variety of different lighting conditions, indoor and out, you can confidently take great shots with its True Tone technology that adjusts colour temperature according to the surrounding lights.
Faster, Higher-Performing Processor
While the iPhone 7 holds the A10 fusion chip that allows for a lightning-fast processing speed with its quad-core processor, its successor is packing cutting-edge hardware under the hood. In the newer model, Apple adds the incredibly fast A11 Bionic chip. It combines two high-performance cores with four high-efficiency cores and has an Apple-designed GPU inside. With that, the device is slick and speedy when navigating and running apps and games.
Same Battery Life but With Wireless Charging Capability
Both Apple models share a similar battery life that lasts for about the same number of hours for all forms of uses. This includes talk time, internet use, video playback, and audio playback.
Nevertheless, iPhone 8's rapid wireless charging capability makes up for its weak battery capacity. The smartphone can charge much more quickly than its predecessor, provided that you use Apple's fast charger, which requires a separate purchase. The downside of its wireless charging capability though is that it merely operates at 7.5W, which is much lower than the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that can charge at up to 10W.
All in all, the iPhone 8 has the best of both worlds - it has some features of the iPhone X and iPhone XR while certain features of the iPhone 7 remain. With overhauled internals and minor tweaks in terms of its design, the successor of iPhone 7 does everything better than ever before.

How long will an iPhone 8 last?
Based on the pattern of previous Apple iPhones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus can continue to receive support and update for around 5 years. Since both phones were released in September 2017, they should probably last up to 2023, and they will likely lose software support by then. This could be a part of Apple’s strategy in pushing the sales of their new iPhone series as iOS continuously gets upgraded, resulting in old iPhones losing support for the latest iOS.
Does iPhone 8 need a screen protector?
Although the front screen of the iPhone 8 is made of durable Corning glass (not Corning Gorilla glass, but a special glass formulated specifically for Apple), a screen protector is recommended to prevent the screen from cracking after accidental drops. You may also opt for one with anti-blue light or privacy filter to reduce eye strain in the long run.
