Apple has unwrapped two flagship model of its phone this year: iPhone X and iPhone 8. Should you ditch your old iPhone in favor of one of these? And if yes, which model should you choose. Well, if your older iPhone is not very old and you love your current iPhone, there is no need to move to the next model – at least not right now. But if you are buying a new iPhone or are determined to upgrade your model, here are the major differences between new iPhone X and iPhone 8.
- Display and Design
The first, and most important, distinction between the two phones is their display. Apple has experimented with its iPhone X. In fact, this is the only factor where iPhone has been unorthodox in the smartphone industry. It features edge to edge design with 5.8 inch screen. This means leaving the traditional back button and an odd cut on the top of the screen for the camera and other essentials. This odd cut does not look bad, however,
On the other hand, iPhone 8 has retained the traditional look and you are not going to have any drastic change in buying a new iPhone 8. It features a 4.7-inch screen with a traditional back button at the bottom.
There is not much difference between iPhone X and iPhone 8 as far as the specs and performance are concerned. Both feature Apple A11 Bionic chipset Six-Core CPU and six core GPU with M11 motion processor. iPhone X has 3 GB RAM while iPhone 8 has 2 GB RAM.
iPhone X has a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom with a faster aperture (f/2.4 vs f/2.8). other than this difference, both phones have identical rear and front cameras.
In addition to these difference, there is a whopping 300 dollar difference between iPhone X and iPhone 8 with iPhone X being considerably costlier.
