There is an overwhelming choice when it comes to finding a new phone brand and model. For those of us that are not particularly tech-savvy, we need some guidance about what exactly makes all these different models unique and which iPhone is the best value for money. With a plethora of smartphone brands including but not limited to Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Lenovo and LG this article could not possibly delve into all the options but the focus is going to be on iPhones and the various new models available.
In the last year, the iPhone has brought out three different new models and redesigned the highly controversial iPhone X.
The iPhone X
The iPhone X was created to mark the 10th anniversary of the Apple iPhone and has catapulted Apple iPhones into the future. Although expensive the iPhone X adds a whole host of new features and premium parts. Many critics predicted that the iPhone X was a bit of a gamble due to the loss of well-known iPhone features such as the home button and touch id fingerprint. However, the new design and all screen display symbolise a fresh design and customers feel as if they have actually got a new iPhone, instead of a slightly modified upgrade.
- 8 inch OLED display screen ( great quality)
- Longer stretched screen
- The screen changes mean improved quality when viewing pics, websites and videos
- Facial Recognition
- Contactless payments
- Easy to use with one hand
Expensive but if you are willing to pay for the best, the iPhone X could be for you.
iPhone 8 Plus
Although slightly less dazzling than the iPhone X, the 8 plus is more cost friendly and still has some advantageous new features. The 8 plus is revolutionary in the fact it has both fast charging and wireless charging. The design is not quite as aesthetic as the X but is still a fairly attractive model. The camera has improved and makes use of a dual lens.
- Dual Camera increases photo quality
- The glass back adds prestige
- Wireless charging is a nice bonus
- Speakers are louder
- Screen quality and colour reproduction improved.
The screen size has reverted back to the traditional iPhone sizes of the past at 4.7 inches. A lot of people might feel opting for this smaller screen is a movement back rather than forward but the new technology is still very much ahead of past iPhones.
- Wireless charging
- Point and Shoot camera improvements
Hopefully, this article has helped you understand some of the main differences between the three newest iPhone models. If you are looking for ultimate quality with innovative new features such as OLED screen display, facial recognition and contactless payments the iPhone X is the clear winner. If you are looking for a slightly more affordable option the iPhone 8 offers great features such as wireless charging and a dual camera to increase photo quality. Finally, the iPhone 8 brings back a nostalgic feel of older iPhones with its smaller 4.7 screen but still packs a punch in terms of upgraded technology.
