Iphone 8 plus và iphone 7 plus

Apple ’s biggest new iPhone has arrived, but with an unfamiliar name. While the iPhone X has taken all the attention, Apple also launched the iPhone 8 và iPhone 8 Plus - subtle upgrades of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus but without the expected ‘S’ moniker. So is the iPhone 8 Plus really a whole number better than its predecessor?

Tell help you decide, here are the biggest differences between the iPhone 8 Plus và the iPhone 7 Plus…

Design và Size - Bigger And More Fragile

Thought the iPhone 7 Plus was too big for a 5.5-inch smartphone? Well the iPhone 8 Plus is slightly taller, wider, thicker và noticeably heavier:

iPhone 8 Plus - 158.4 x 78.1 x 7.5 mm (6.28 x 3.07 x 0.32 in) và 202g (7.13 oz)
iPhone 7 Plus - 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 milimet (6.23 x 3.07 x 0.29 in) & 188g (6.63 oz)

The reason for this weight gain (which is also 17.5% heavier than the original iPhone 6 Plus kiến thiết it is based on) is the return of glass. Not seen since the iPhone 4S in 2011, all Apple’s new iPhones have sầu glass backs rather than aluminium so they can support wireless charging (more in the Battery Life section).

If you don’t care about wireless charging then the change is unlikely khổng lồ be welcome, despite Apple claiming it is the toughest glass ever fitted to lớn an iPhone. The bottom line is glass cracks, aluminium does not.

On the flipside the iPhone 8 Plus retains the other key durability features of the iPhone 7 Plus: iP67 water và dust resistance (allowing for full submersion in up lớn 1 metre of water for 30 minutes) và rigid Series 7000 Aluminium for its internal chassis. In addition the iPhone 8 Plus has 25% louder external stereo speakers.

Fans hoping the iPhone 8 Plus would see a return for the tai nghe jaông chồng & the inclusion of universal USB-C charging will be disappointed though. The latter is still absent và Lighting remains Apple’s (proprietary) port of choice - it was always going to lớn be so.

When it comes to lớn colour options, the iPhone 8 Plus drops the iPhone 7 Plus’ rose gold và jet Blachồng colour options in favour of Gold and Blachồng (glass is already shiny). Space Gray also returns but (Product)Red drops out for now.

All in all there really is very little design improvement in the iPhone 8 Plus over the iPhone 7 Plus (an iPhone X scale overhaul this is not) and the glass back will be polarising.

Displays - Old Dog, New Tricks

Apple finally embraced OLED with the iPhone X (at a price), but the iPhone 8 Plus sticks with both the LCD panel of its predecessor và a matching resolution:

iPhone 8 Plus - 5.5-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD, 1920 x 1080 pixels (401 ppi), 67.7% screen-to-toàn thân ratio iPhone 7 Plus - 5.5-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD, 19đôi mươi x 1080 pixels (401 ppi), 67.7% screen-to-toàn thân ratio

Surprisingly Apple has not made its customary contrast ratio improvements this year either with the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus sharing the same 1300:1 rating, which is lower than the 1400:1 of the iPhone 8 và iPhone 7. That said there are two notable upgrades.

Firstly the iPhone 8 Plus adds support for ‘True Tone’ technology which Apple first launched with the Máy tính bảng iPad Pro range. True Tone balances the display against environmental lighting so colours are always accurate at all times. Secondly there’s HDR support for both Dolby Vision và HDR10 standards which is great given HDR nội dung is flooding Netflix, Amazon Video & iTunes.

Performance - The Big Boost

Where the iPhone 8 Plus really shines against the iPhone 7 Plus, however, is performance.

iPhone 8 Plus - Apple A11 Bionic chipset: Six Core CPU, Six bộ vi xử lý Core GPU, M11 motion coprocessor, 3GB RAM iPhone 7 Plus - Apple A10 Fusion chipset: Quad Core CPU, Six Chip Core GPU, M10 motion coprocessor, 3GB RAM

Apple claims the A11 chip delivers 70% faster multitasking (great given users swap between apps constantly), 30% faster graphics và 25% faster peak CPU performance. In addition Apple says the iPhone 8 Plus is 70% faster than the iPhone 7 Plus in low power mode.

These are serious upgrades, especially considering the A10 chipset in the year old iPhone 7 Plus is still faster than any Android rival today. Of course the counterpoint is whether you need such an tăng cấp, but nevertheless it is extremely impressive.

Cameras - Physically Similar, Computationally Different

Look at the iPhone 8 Plus camera specifications và you won’t be impressed. Like the iPhone 7 Plus it retains the same 12 megapx dual cameras on the baông chồng with an f/1.8 wide-angle sensor và slow f/2.8 telephokhổng lồ sensor (for 2x optical zoom) plus a 7 megapx, f/2.2 sensor on the front.

And yet you should expect a significant tăng cấp in photo lớn & đoạn Clip chất lượng.

Why? Because điện thoại thông minh photography is increasingly about the quality of computational image processing rather than the physical hardware. Google’s Pixels took the điện thoại thông minh camera crown in năm 2016 (và arguably still hold them in 2017) despite inferior hardware thanks to superior image processing.

And here is where the A11 Bionic steps in. Apple’s new chip is the first to lớn have a dedicated Apple-designed ISP (Image Signal Processor) built-in to lớn greatly improve sầu pixel processing, deliver faster low-light autofocus & better noise reduction.

Apple claims the iPhone 8 Plus camera will be a major step up from the iPhone 7 Plus and early signs are encouraging. Whether it does enough khổng lồ catch up with rivals or keep pace with the iPhone X (which has a faster, OIS telephokhổng lồ lens) remains to lớn be seen.

Battery Life And Charging - Stamina Stagnation, Charging Revelation

Battery life on Apple’s iPhone Plus range has always been superb so it is not the kết thúc of the world that the iPhone 8 Plus delivers no tangible nâng cấp on the staying power of the iPhone 7 Plus. Even if it is a surprise given the greater efficiency of the A11 (hint: Apple reduced the iPhone 8’s battery capacity).

Then again what the iPhone 8 Plus does vị is dramatically change how it charges. For starters Apple has finally brought fast charging khổng lồ the iPhone range, delivering up khổng lồ 50% charge in just 30 minutes. On top of this the controversial glass bachồng enables Apple to lớn tư vấn Qi-wireless charging for the first time.

Unfortunately, however, there are significant caveats lớn both of these upgrades. With wired charging Apple does not include a fast charger in the box & its optional quick chargers are expensive sầu & don’t include a cable (which is a different standard lớn the bundled one). Meanwhile wireless charging only works at 5W when Qi typically works at 7W và even has a fast 15W standard supported by rivals such as Samsung.

I suspect Apple’s upcoming ‘AirPower’ wireless standard will improve sầu power delivery when it arrives in 2018, but this is likely khổng lồ be expensive and incompatible with Qi’s existing 15W standard.

Storage And Price - Better Base, Higher Costs

Typically where Apple gives it also takes, so 2017 sees the iPhone 8 Plus double its entry level storage (from 32GB to 64GB) but increase its starting price & thất bại 2016’s oh-so-popular 128GB ($869) sweet spot:

iPhone 8 Plus - 64GB ($799), 256GB ($949) iPhone 7 Plus - new prices: 32GB ($669), 128GB ($769)

Also making things interesting is Apple’s $100 reduction of the iPhone 7 Plus which now comes in just two storage levels for a more budget friendly $669 và $769. The problem is their inferior storage options mean it is just a $30 difference between the 64GB iPhone 8 Plus và 128GB iPhone 7 Plus - a tricky choice for some.

Personally I’d take the newer Model. The iPhone 8 Plus will be supported for a year longer, it’s faster, has a better camera & marginally better screen while its fast and wireless charging are useful additions. Even if the former is absurdly priced and the latter won’t blossom until Airnguồn arrives.

Tip: you can save sầu on storage space by using Google Photos’ free unlimited storage for photos (up to lớn 16MP) and video (up lớn 1080p).

Bottom Line

There’s no hiding from the fact the iPhone 8 Plus is a dull nâng cấp.

The core design is well past its sell by date, it’s far too big và heavy for its screen form size & it has gotten more expensive while losing its popular mid tier storage option. Given the efficiencies of the A11 chipphối, there was also plenty of scope for Apple khổng lồ extover battery life but it reduced battery capacity instead.

Yes, this is an ‘iPhone 7S Plus’ in all but name.

And yet technologically there’s a lot to lớn admire about the iPhone 8 Plus. The A11 chipphối is a masterpiece and is likely to lớn beat every Android rival well into lớn 2019, the cameras have sầu improved & there are finally decent charging options (even if their pricing is exploitative).

Furthermore with the iPhone X priced much higher và unavailable for months there’s something reassuring about the predictableness of the iPhone 8 Plus. After four generations it represents Apple’s perfection of this size factor in what is likely its last outing with a 6.46-inch iPhone X Plus expected to replace it in 2018.

As such, while there’s little to lớn excite & it’s not an obvious update for iPhone 7 Plus owners, there remains much to respect about the iPhone 8 Plus.
