Apple iPhone 8 Plus Review and Features

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are smartphones designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. They make up the 11th generation of the iPhone. The iPhone 8 was released on September 22, 2017, succeeding the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and preceding the iPhone X. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were discontinued by Apple on April 15, 2020, with the release of the second-generation iPhone SE.

Except for the addition of a glass back, the designs of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are largely similar to that of their predecessors. Notable changes include the removal of the rose gold and jet black colour variants, adding inductive charging, a faster processor, and improved cameras and displays. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus share most of their internal hardware with the iPhone X.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were discontinued as of February 2020, having sold 86.3 million units worldwide, making them one of the best-selling smartphones of all time. The entry-level iPhone SE second and third generations share the exterior dimensions of the iPhone 8.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were the final models of the flagship iPhone model to feature the Home Button and Touch ID.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus retain the Retina HD Display found in the iPhone 7, but they now feature True Tone technology, allowing for automatic screen adjustments based on ambient lighting.

They can play HDR10 and Dolby Vision content despite not having an HDR-ready display, done by down-converting the HDR content to fit the display while still having some enhancements to dynamic range, contrast, and wide colour gamut compared to standard content.

Camera

The iPhone 8 features a 12 MP camera with autofocus, f/1.8 aperture, and optical image stabilisation capable of capturing 4K video at 24, 30, or 60 frames per second, or 1080p video at 30, 60, 120, or 240 frames per second.

The iPhone 8 Plus upgrades the main camera for a wide-angle lens with up to 10× digital zoom or 2× optical zoom and retains a second telephoto lens similar to the one found on the iPhone 7 Plus but with improved depth-of-field and lighting effects in Portrait mode.

Both models have a 7 MP front camera with an f/2.2 aperture capable of capturing 1080p video at 30 frames per second and 720p video at 24 frames per second, along with face detection and high dynamic range.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus record videos with single-channel audio (mono). Still, photos with 6.5 megapixels (3412×1920) can be captured during video recording.

Chipset

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus contain the Apple A11 Bionic system-on-chip, a Hexa-core processor that the company says features two cores that are 25% faster than the iPhone 7’s A10 processor and four cores that are 70% faster than the prior model.

The phones also feature an Apple-designed graphics processing unit 30% faster than prior units, with the same level of performance as the A10 at half the power.

The phones have glass backs instead of the complete aluminium housing found on prior models, enabling the use of Qi inductive charging.

The phones are rated IP67 for water resistance and dust resistance. Both models have 64 and 256-gigabyte storage options and are offered in silver, gold, or Space Gray colour options.

A Product Red special edition version in red with a black front was released on April 9, 2018. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus special editions had a white front, The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were the last iPhones with a white front in Silver and White Color.

In addition to Qi wireless charging, the iPhone 8 also supports wired charging using Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector. It can fast-charge from a charger providing USB Power Delivery combined with a special USB-C to Lightning adapter cable supporting fast charging.

The iPhone 8 has a 6 out of 10 reparability score from iFixit, mainly due to the use of excessive glue for the back glass.

Network

SIM <strong>SIM</strong> (Subscriber Identity Module) is a small card that contains mobile network subscriber's account information. This allows the phone using the card to attach to a mobile network. The SIM card is most commonly associated with GSM and UMTS mobile networks. Moving a SIM card from one phone to another allows a subscriber to switch mobile phones without having to contact their mobile network carrier. SIM cards can also be used by a phone to store limited amounts of data, such as phone numbers and text messages. Nano SIM
