In terms of dimensions, the iPhone 8 measures in at 138.4mm or 5.45 inches tall, 67.3mm or 2.65mm wide, and 7.3mm or 0.29 inches deep. The iPhone 8 Plus is larger, measuring up to 158.4 mm or 6.28 inches tall, 78.1 mm or 3.07 inches wide, and 7.5 mm or 0.32 inches deep. That is why the iPhone 8 Plus, while having a smaller display compared to the iPhone 11, is still a bigger phone when it comes to its height, width, and overall thickness. The iPhone 11 is a bit more compact than the iPhone 8 Plus, though it does have a screen that adds an extra 0.4 inches.
The iPhone X actually has the biggest screen in an Apple phone, measuring 5.8 inches across its diagonal, even bigger than the screen in Apples largest iPhone, the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus. At 6.1 inches, the iPhone XRs display is technically larger than the 5.5-inch display on the iPhone 8 Plus if you measure it on the diagonal, but looking at them side-by-side, the actual amount of screen real estate is not much of a difference. The model of the iPhone with the largest screen is the iPhone X, which has a 5.8-inch screen measured diagonally. The iPhone 12 mini has a larger screen size than the iPhone 8, at 5.4 inches instead of 4.8 inches.
The iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch screen that fills up the front of the phones chassis, providing a lot of real estate for apps to work with. The screen-to-body ratio for the iPhone 8 is a whopping 65.6%, lower than most of Apples newly designed models, but impressive for the time the phone launched. The Pixel Resolution of the iPhone 8 Plus is higher, with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, 401 pixels per inch, and also increases to 67.7 percent of the screen-to-body ratio. When it comes to the clarity of the display, the iPhone 8 Plus looks better with the 401 pixels per inch as opposed to 326ppi in the iPhone XR, but once again, that is a difference that you might not notice unless you are trying to spot it.
The sensors are both 12MP, which is similar in both phones, but shoot with higher levels of quality in the iPhone 11. While this might sound like a substantial difference, you should keep in mind that iPhone 8 Plus has to power the higher-resolution display, too, and it has two cameras. If you are coming from an older iPhone with an LCD display, you never see a real difference. Apples iPhones have changed their display sizes drastically over the past couple years.
Most recently, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus marked the introduction of two relatively different phones, the major points of differentiation being larger sizes and a double camera added to the iPhone 7 Plus. The two devices improved upon everything that Apple loved about the iPhone, with redesigned internals and tweaked designs, but the changes introduced were not nearly as drastic as those brought by the iPhone X, which launched with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The recent releases of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro changed the pecking order for the iPhone — specifically, the iPhone 11 got a price drop and moved lower down the line, while the newer iPhones came up on top.
Moving onto the camera quality offered by the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, it is important to note that, despite advances made in this area by other Android competitors, Apple has chosen to keep a lot of hardware specs you would find on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The Apple iPhone 8 Plus handset has a 5.5-inch (1920×1080) IPS LCD screen, 12MP primary camera, and a 12MP selfie camera. Screen size The screen size of Apple iPhone 8 Plus is 5.5 inches, which has an effective device-size ratio of about 67.4%.
Apple iPhone 8 Plus has physical size of 5.5 and the Apple iPhone 8 Plus resolution is about 1080 x 1920 pixels with approximately 401 PPI of pixel density. The iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5″ screen, but is bezel-surrounded, with a FaceTime camera at the front, and a traditional home button at the bottom. Its new iPhone has a 5.8-inch screen, but is in a much slimmer package, with almost no bezel, no Home button, and a small notch for its front-facing TrueDepth camera system.
The biggest change is Apple has switched out the iPhone 8s aluminium back to a glass one, something that was common before the iPhone 4S. Apple chose glass for the bodies of both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus in order to allow the Qi-based wireless charging inductive charging function, which allows both devices to charge by resting on top of any Qi-certified inductive charger.
Wireless charging will not be quick charging (though the Qi standard does provide for it), and Apple will customize the standard later this year with a charging dock that supports up to three devices and displays their charging levels on an iPhones home screen, but it is a start. Apple says that you can expect a 50% charge after 30 minutes of fast charging over a cable, which is not exactly on par with the faster results that you would get with competing Android phones (OnePlus, notably), but is a huge improvement over the iPhones of before.
With the iPhone XR, you actually will have your battery last you a full day with normal usage. If battery life is most important to you, then The iPhone 8 Plus With a physically larger battery, the iPhone 8 Plus should manage to squeeze out slightly longer runtime when using the Internet and streaming video, though Apple estimates roughly equal battery life when talking and playing music.
Apples Portrait Mode, which is limited to the iPhone 8 Pluss dual-lens camera system, has been updated with a Portrait Lighting effect that changes lighting dynamically within the picture, to emulate studio-lighting techniques. The iPhone 8 Pluss system is built around taking Portrait Mode shots from the telephoto lens, which gives it a much closer-to-what-a-specialist would shoot, with both lenses working in tandem to map out the scene in three dimensions, so a convincing faux depth-of-field effect can be applied around a subject. Both phones record at up to 4K resolution at 60fps, but the iPhone 11 includes extended dynamic range, which once again really helps with exposure and colours in scenes, making things appear more realistic, as well as avoiding areas with deep shadows or overblown lights.
