iPhone 8 vs iPhone 11 Comparison

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 11: which one is the better phone for you?

Comparing the iPhone 8 vs iPhone 11 isn’t really a fair comparison. Do you want a budget iPhone that just gets the job done but isn’t particularly powerful or special anymore? Then a refurbished iPhone 8 may be a good buy for you. But if you want an iPhone that will have a much longer battery life that can last even the heaviest smartphone user all day—and more—then the refurbished iPhone 11 will be the right choice for you.

iPhone 11 vs iPhone 8: substantially better cameras

Maybe battery life isn’t that important to you, but you plan on taking a lot of photos everywhere you go. If you’re not a picky photographer, then the refurbished iPhone 8 might be enough for you, but if you want to one-up to the next level of smartphone photography, the iPhone 11 will surely take you there. Thanks to the fact that it has an additional rear-facing camera, you’ll be able to take wide-angle shots, so if you’re a lover of landscapes or architecture, the iPhone 11 may be the better choice for you. But even if the wide-angle lens doesn’t sound that interesting to you, you’ll probably be pleased to hear that the iPhone 11 camera has a better image processor that will ensure better sharpness and color accuracy on just about any picture. And that image processing especially comes in handy at night. Thanks to the iPhone 11’s spectacular Night mode setting, pictures you take at night will have more detail than ever before, even if you’re not using the flash. How is the iPhone 11 able to do this? We think it has something to do with machine learning—ooohhh robots… cool!!!

iPhone 11 vs iPhone 8: the screen has similar quality, but it’s a lot bigger

When Apple made the iPhone 11, they outfitted it with the same Retina screen technology that they put in the iPhone 8 a couple of years earlier, but made it a lot bigger. You get a 6.1” LCD screen in the iPhone 11 vs a 4.7” LCD in the iPhone 8, which is great news for you if you like watching YouTube videos or playing mobile games. This also makes the iPhone 11 a substantially larger device, however, so keep this in mind when choosing between an iPhone 11 vs iPhone 8.
