iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus: 4 things that would have made them even better
by Kaloyan C. / Sep 12, 2017, 5:20 PM
Apple did it again — and again, and again. That is, it just unleashed a whole bunch of new smartphones upon us (okay, just three, but that’s still one more than usual), and they all seem pretty good so far.
In fact, the iPhone X looks like the revolution we’ve been waiting to get for a while — it has a drastic new design that sheds much of the iPhone series’ baggage, while adding impressive new features to replace it. So when we compare the 8 siblings with it, we can’t help but feel them to be just a tad too ordinary.
But that’s okay, really: had it not been the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, the 8 and 8 Plus would most likely have been called the 7s and 7s Plus instead, as has been the tradition for several years now. So it makes sense that the duo would be building upon the foundation of last year’s 7 and 7 Plus.
But regardless, the 2017 smartphone market has spoiled us quite a bit, so here’s what we would change about the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus if given the chance:
- Display 5.5" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 7 MP front
- Processor Apple A11 Bionic, Hexa-core, 2390 MHz
- Storage 256 GB
- Battery 2691 mAh(21h 3G talk time)

All the visible sensors make a white bevel glass cosmetically gawdy, at worst cheap looking. Forget white. Forget pink-gold or whatever. Just go black, at least that cleans up the ridiculous bezels... Not that it'd matter but still.

Notice they mention it having 2hours longer battery life than the iphone 7? Which always lose battery comparison test so I want to see the results of the battery.

Saw the article title and thought new design, glad the author agrees. Design was good in 2014, getting stale now. Even keeping the home button they could have slimmed bezels, increased screen size, or did something to redesign the looks.

#1 absolutely. Other manufacturers use a new design every model, well with exception of Sony Xperia. When you look at some older phones phones like S3, S4 and S5. They all looked like a Galaxy, but they were not basically identical. I want to know why they skipped 7S? Could it be so they can be on the same naming same as Samsung S8/Note 8? I recall reading on how with the S8, the camera specs were only slightly above the S7 and that the camera was teh same. Looks like Apple did the same this year too.
