AUSTIN, Texas – December 14, 2017 – This 2017, Apple has unveiled three new powerful phones as an answer to its competitors’ continuous release of new models every year. The three phones – the iPhone 8, 8 Plus , and X can be considered a mix of the present and future of smartphones. For critics, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus can be seen as the last of its kind, which is a phone with bezels and uses only fingerprint sensors. On the other hand, the iPhone X is the start of the tomorrow, a futuristic phone which is the first of Apple to use a Face Recognition technology and tiny bezel. However, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus still look appealing to most smartphone users for three reasons: 1) these are great phones in their own right, 2) these phones are still true to the iPhone form most people are used to, and 3) these phones do not cost over $1,000.
Critics have been waiting for the release of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in what seems like an eternity and there are lot of speculations as to the additional specs (or lack of). One of the highly anticipated changes made to these phone is the wireless charging. This technology is not new – it is actually almost 10 years old – so Apple was considered late in dipping its toes in this technology and when the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus came out, people just exclaimed, “it’s about time!” Unfortunately, these phones charge slower on the pad then when they are plugged into the wall. But still, iPhone users will definitely feel the change with this added technology.
Aside from the charging capabilities, Apple has also revamped its camera, which is always a good move because who does not love a high quality camera phone. First, the camera’s speed and performance have been upgraded with its new 12-megapixel sensor and A11 Bionic processor. Apple has also changed the internal specifications of the phones in order to handle the upgraded parts. The iPhone 8 has a single camera on the back with an f/1.8 lens and optical image stabilization while the iPhone 9 Plus adds a second f/2.8 telephoto lens, which enables it take beautiful soft-background photos in Portrait mode. Both phones have 7-megapixel selfie cameras, which makes them a go-to gadget for instant selfies. In addition to the photo upgrades, users can also enjoy taking videos with these new phones. Slow-motion video in 1080p is now possible with these phones. For video enthusiasts, the phones can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second and even shoot at 24 frames per second. The iPhone 8 Plus has an added feature with its Portrait Lighting, which lets the user artificially change the light in a photo.
One of the things that make critics say that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are transition phones from the present to the future is the phones’ design for augmented reality. With some applications already geared for the augmented reality function of the newest iPhone models, smartphone users will surely be hooked with the things in store for them.
With all the upgraded features of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, one part of these phones definitely add some class to the models – the glass case. Design-wise, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus looks like their predecessor – home button is still there, the headphone jack is still missing, and there is still a big bezel around the screen. However, both models are encased in glass – yes, glass on the back and glass on the front. Apple had already promised that these glass phones are strong to withstand breakage but still, one ought to be careful.
