When Time Cook took to stage to announce the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, there was an air of familiarity of what the two phones would be like. The names, however, were yet to be confirmed and the first image on the big screen confirmed that Apple would be skipping a whole ‘S’ generation and jump straight into the iPhone 8 era. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were revealed with a design so familiar that its hard to make out the difference between the previous generation iPhones and the 2017 iPhones by just looking at them. Let’s unbox the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus to see what we get inside the box:

  • iPhone 8
  • Documentation
  • Lightning earphones
  • Lightning to 3.5mm jack
  • Sim ejector tool
  • USB wall charging brick
  • USB to lightning port cable

Initial impressions of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are very similar to the ones of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. This time around, there is a glass back which definitely makes the new iPhones a lot more grippy than the previous gen iPhones. Another noticeable difference is the True Tone display. True Tone display first featured on the iPad wherein the phone adapts to the ambient display and changes the white balance to maintain the vibrance and accuracy of colours.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be available in Space Gray, Silver and a new Blush Gold colour. The devices retain their previous generations’ screen size ans resolution of 4.7 inch 1334 x 750 px and 5.5 inch 1920 x 1080 px display, with the addition of True Tone. . Under the hood, both the phones have Apple’s A11 Bionic chip which so far, has blown the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset out of the waters, in benchmark tests at least. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have a 3GB RAM and 64GB pr 256GB onboard storage variants. The 1821 mAh battery in the iPhone 8 is smaller than the iPhone 7’s 1960 mAh battery while the iPhone 8 Plus has a 2675 mAh battery as compared to the 2900 mAh battery on the iPhone 7 Plus. Apple however, claims that the new iPhones will have identical battery life to their predecessors. There is also wireless charging this time around, thanks to the glass back on both the iPhones. The TouchID is still there right below the display and might as well be the deciding factor in some consumer’s purchase decisions over the iPhone X.

The cameras department is where Apple claims the biggest change is. The iPhone 8 has the same 12MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture with a few software upgrades and OIS. Apple claims the new camera is larger and faster than the previous generation. On the front is a 7MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture which records 1920 x 1080 px videos at 30fps. The iPhone 8 Plus features a 12MP dual-camera setup. The primary wide angle lens has an f/1.7 aperture and the secondary telephoto lens has an f/2.8 aperture. The new “Portrait Lighting” feature allows users to adjust the lighting for portrait shots. On the front is a 7MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture which records 1920 x 1080 px videos at 30fps. The dual-cameras at the back record 4K videos at 60fps.
