The iPhone X received a significant update in both design and functionality. The display on the iPhone X saw the removal of the home button and top and bottom bezel which gives the X a much better screen to body ratio. The TrueTone OLED display on the iPhone X also has a higher pixel density that makes for a clear and crisp viewing experience. The iPhone X and the iPhone 8 both feature the same A11 bionic chip so are comparable in power and performance. Frank
Dimensions for each model are below:
- iPhone X - 5.8-inch 18.5:9 True Tone OLED, 2436 x 1125 pixels (458 ppi), 82.9% screen-to-body ratio
- iPhone 8 - 4.7-inch 16:9 True Tone LCD, 1334 x 750 pixels (326 ppi), 65.6% screen-to-body ratio
On the iPhone X, the addition of a front facing camera that features TrueDepth enables Face ID for biometric security and let’s you take better quality selfies.
If price is your top priority, the iPhone 8 still offers a great experience but if you want to leap into the iPhone category that allows you to experience some of the latest features, still at a reasonable price point, the iPhone X is a great place to start.
