Apple iPhone 8 is a physical look-alike of its predecessor, the iPhone 7. It has the same design and same screen size and resolution. This time though, there is glass both on the front and the back of the phone.
The differences become more glaring inside. The iPhone 8 has a new processor and GPU – both Apple-made. iPhone users’ battery life nightmares may not be over yet though: the iPhone 8 has a smaller battery than its predecessor, though Apple claims that the iPhone 8 battery lasts longer. Time will tell.
