In 2017, we saw the release of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. With several options to choose from, what should you do? Rather than making you read a separate iPhone 8 review and iPhone X review, we’ve compared their design, camera, battery, and price to give you an idea of the differences between the iPhone X vs. iPhone 8.


The iPhone 8 looks similar to its predecessors with bezels below and above the display, with the bottom one featuring the familiar home button and fingerprint scanner. On the other hand, the front of the iPhone X has a near infinity screen with only a small notch for the camera. The iPhone X is slightly wider, longer, thicker, and heavier, but not by much.


For the rear lenses, both smartphones feature 12 megapixels, image stabilization, f/1.8 aperture, and quad-LED flash. However, the iPhone X boasts Portrait Mode and two lenses–one wide-angle and the other telephoto. Both phones also have front-facing cameras with 7 megapixels and an aperture of f/2.2, but the iPhone X also can utilize Portrait Mode and the new Animoji feature for creative selfies.


Here’s how the phones compare in terms of battery life:

iPhone X: 12 hours internet use, 21 hours talk time, 60 hours audio playback, and 13 hours video playback.

iPhone 8: 12 hours internet use, 14 hours talk time, 40 hours audio playback, and 13 hours video playback.

Both phones have decent power, but there always comes a time when you’ll need a wireless iPhone charger to get you through a long day.


If you opt for the starting point of 64GB of storage, the iPhone X will cost you $999 while the iPhone 8 is $699. This makes the iPhone 8 more reasonable for those on a budget.
