Three new phones iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X were launched at Apple’s keynote event in Cupertino, California, at the new Steve Jobs theatre on 12 September. The event was a huge success and the internet couldn’t stop swooning over the new products and their design. But the people who own an iPhone 7 and wants to upgrade to the new iPhone 8, do you really think it is a wise decision? Check out these points before jumping into a final conclusion.
Better Image Sensors
The iPhone 8 includes new image sensors for providing better quality images. It features 12-MP f/1.8 aperture, 5x digital zoom camera with Optical Image Stabilisation. The camera is same as the iPhone 7 rather than Quad-LED True Tone flash with Slow Sync which is used for taking better images in low light. Do you think the pictures taken with an iPhone 7 are of poor in quality? But for taking quality images you could spend your money on a good DSLR camera or you could just order an iPhone X and be thrifty rather than getting an iPhone 8 if you already own an iPhone 7.
iPhone 8 supports wireless charging where iPhone 7 doesn’t. The back of iPhone 8 is now covered with all glass to support wireless charging. But a glass could be prone to scratches and it wouldn’t look great with them.
iPhone 8 is embedded with an A11 Bionic chip with four efficiency cores making the phone 70 percent faster than A10 Fusion used in iPhone 7 and up to 25 percent faster with two performance cores and the three‑core GPU is up to 30 percent faster than A10 Fusion. If you are an iPhone 7 user then ask yourself “How often do you face a problem of slow phone due to RAM?” If the answer is very less, then you wouldn’t want to buy an iPhone 8 because it is faster.
True Tone Technology
The True Tone technology allows the screen brightness to adjust automatically according to the light of the environment.
iPhone 8 comes with added features of wireless charging, faster A11 Bionic chip, better image sensors and true tone technology. It will be sold at a price of $699(Rs64,000) for 64 GB storage and256GB $799(Rs77,000) for 256GB of storage and the iPhone 7 comes at a price of $549 (Rs49,000) for 32GB storage and $649 (Rs58,000) for 128GB of storage. It is recommended to stick to the iPhone 7 you already have or get an iPhone X if you need a better phone than iPhone 7. But if you can’t afford the big money of iPhone X and are desperate about changing your phone then go for iPhone 8.
