We have received so many requests from some of you asking that we do an article to guide you in making your choice between the two iphone versions.

First, it is important to note that these two phones have one full year release gap in-between them.

While iphone 7 was released in Sept. 2016, iphone 8 was released exactly one after.

One may ask why reviewing iphone 7 vs iphone 8  that are already about two to three years older.

Well the fact is that, if you check out the rate at which these two iphone versions are still on sell even in 2019, you will realize they are one of the hottest iphone products for many reasons.

Some of you asked us questions like

“Which one is better or which among them should I buy?”




And as a matter of fact, we will in this article do a deep dive into all details and provide you with reliable information to help you make a smarter choice.

So if you are ready, then am also set. Let’s go…..

  • Design

As far as design is concerned, the two are quite identical with minute differences.

In terms of physical size, iphone 7 has 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1mm and 138grams.

While iphone 8 has a dimension of 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm  with 148 grams of weight

Iphone 7 is constructed all around with aluminum materials while iphone 8 is built with glass material on the front and the rear.

Perhaps this explains why iphone 8 is slightly weightier than iphone 7 due to the glass material.

The weight is indeed a factor for many to determine which to buy talking of iphone 7 vs iphone 8.

It is a function of choice here.

Because some people may prefer sweet looking aluminum cover while others will like to go for glass design cover.

  • Speakers

Both phones have dual speaker provision.

However, the iphone 8 speakers are 25% louder than iphone 7.

So for those who take speaker output as a major factor, you may consider iphone 8  when looking at iphone 7 vs iphone 8 music or voice output.

Both iphones come with IP67 grade water resistance which make them fully protected from sand, dust , water splashes and rain showers.

Very importantly too is the fact that iphone 8 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 instead of 4.2 as found in iphone 7.

Bluetooth 5.0 helps iphone 8 to deliver better Bluetooth performance.

Even Apple confirm that there is 30% increase in graphics performance as well.

  • Display

Perhaps one great feature in iphone 8 again is the fact that it has a technological feature that allows it to charge wirelessly, while iphone 7 has not.

  • Price

Iphone 7 cost $549   for 32Gb Storage capacity

If I am to choose between iphone 7 and iphone 8 though, I will go for the latter.
