What Are the Differences Between iPhone 7 and New iPhone 8?

January 15, 2018

Folks who currently own an iPhone 7 are wondering if the newest version of the iPhone truly lives up to the hype and find themselves asking, is an upgrade worth it? Before taking the plunge and investing in the latest version, it’s worth examining the similarities and differences between the two models to see if the iPhone 8 is right for you.

Quality iPhone 8 Cases - Made from the Finest Leather

In terms of aesthetics, very little has changed between the iPhone 7 and 8. At first glance, the biggest difference can be seen on the back; the iPhone 8 has a glass backing, a shift from the aluminum backing on the iPhone 7. While you may not be able to detect the size different from first glance, upon closer inspection you will note that the iPhone 8 is fractionally larger than the 7 and even weighs slightly more. Outside of these subtle changes, the iPhone 7 and 8 are virtually indistinguishable.

The Wireless Charging Built Into the iPhone 8

One of the most significant enhancements is the wireless charging built into the iPhone 8. For those of us who use our phones non-stop throughout the day and too often find our batteries low when we need our phones the most, the wireless charging feature is a compelling reason alone to upgrade. The wireless charging is complimented by faster charging capabilities, not to mention longer battery life. The iPhone 8 offers good news for those clumsy consumers who have a habit of dropping their phones on the ground or in water. The iPhone 8 is made with water and dust resistant features to protect your phone after a sudden drop.

What Similar Features Can We Expect?

The iPhone 8 will maintain the touch ID fingerprint identification. The iPhone 7 surprised some consumers, by eliminating the ear phone jack, which the iPhone 8 has also phased out in hopes that more and more iPhone consumers will use Bluetooth instead. The overall design of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 are nearly identical, showing no real improvement on the display.

Consumers who decide to upgrade to the iPhone 8 will also need to upgrade their iPhone casing. Vaja offers unusual, beautifully crafted iPhone 8 leather us at a price point that will make this your new “go to” gift for the holidays.
