It’s HERE! The iPhone 8 is out and we’ve got the details on what to expect from this new iPhone. Some of the changes to look forward to are the glass back, to allow the iPhone to wirelessly charge, and the updated camera. It comes in Silver, Gold and Space Grey and comes with the same accessories that the iPhone 7 came with.
How durable is the new iPhone though, with the back made of glass instead of metal? The claim is that this is the most durable glass ever on a smartphone. The scratch resistance seems to be the same as the iPhone 7 when tested and there is zero flex when trying to bend the device. Overall it’s a well-made phone.
The Galaxy S8 was one of the hottest new phones released this year, so how does the iPhone 8 measure up? It is still looking like the Samsung 8 is miles ahead simply because the iPhone 8 doesn’t change much from the previously released iPhone 7. Apple is still refusing to convert to USB Type-C and having no headphone jack. It also still lacks a MicroSD port for expanding the memory. Both do feature wireless charging, which is a great feature.
