It is well known that Apple has touted iPhone X as a device to celebrate its iPhone’s 10th anniversary. The latest news of a color variant hitting the market soon has prompted several iPhone 8 users to think about a device upgrade.

However, still many are confused whether they should invest in iPhone X or should feel content with iPhone 8. So, if you are also an iPhone 8 user, let’s have a look at the top five differences between the latest flagship model and your current device.


While the new phone boasts of a 5.8-inch OLED display, the other device has an LCD display of 4.7 inches. A display powered by OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) technology offers higher contrast and more brightness which in-turn offers an enhanced sense of realism. Thus, no wonder, the new model managed to grab all the eyeballs even before its formal launch.


The ‘notch’ at the top of the iPhone X display is not found in any of the Apple devices. For admirers of iPhone X, it appears to ruin the spectacular design. However, it turns out to be a camera system serving a vital purpose.

Face ID

The biggest difference between the two devices is the introduction of a new feature-Face ID in iPhone X. The new feature can accurately map the face of its user in three dimensions. With iPhone 8 you will only have a touch ID.


The battery life of iPhone 8 has disappointed many users, but things are going to change with the new model as it promises to last two hours longer. So, if you are the one who loves endless talking or listening to your favorite songs for long hours, the new phone will surely appeal to you.


The much-admired device at $999 is more expensive than iPhone 8. It seems overpriced to Apple lovers. It seems Apple has also understood this grim reality and there are strong rumors that the company may slash the pricing soon.

Of course, there are some more differences like iPhone X is 17 percent heavier, has a portrait lightning, and offers Animoji which facilitates a user to send emojis that are animated. The emojis can also mimic the facial expressions of the user.
