The iPhone X has arrived, and it is so much more than just a smart phone. It has a top-to-bottom bright and colorful edge-to-edge OLED screen, wireless charging, and the most powerful Apple-designed processor engineered to date. It’s basically the R8 of smartphones, and its price tag confirms it, starting at $1,000 to get your hands on this baby.
So we know you’re thinking, how does the iPhone X, compare to the iPhone 8? Both the iPhone X and iPhone 8 are available in 64GB and 256 GB flavors, which is ample room for apps, games, music, movies, and any other media you might want to store offline.
Both the iPhone X and iPhone 8 are available in 64GB and 256 GB, providing more than enough storage space for apps, games, music, thousands of pictures, and even movies. However, the main differences between the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X are how the phones look. From the front, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus both look very different the iPhone X.
The iPhone X’s 5.8-inch OLED screen has a resolution of 2,436 x 1,125-pixel, which Apple refers to as its Super Retina HD screen. The individual pixels in screen brighten or darken as needed, producing an image with a far better contrast and color accuracy.
Both the 8 and 8 Plus don’t have the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge design, instead, they have the thicker, traditional bezels. The iPhone 8 Plus may have a smaller 5.5-inch screen size, but it’s actually a bigger phone compared to the 5.8-inch iPhone X.
The biggest excitement with the iPhone X, which differs to the older models including the 8, is that the home button has been replaced with a “software bar” across the bottom of the screen, and it no longer uses Touch ID, so the iPhone X can’t be unlocked with a fingerprint. In order to unlock The iPhone X, it uses face recognition. That’s cool!
