7 Reasons Not To Buy iPhone 8: Apple launched iPhone 8 and 8 plus a few days ago. These new iPhones got only a few changes. These new phone looks and well built but they come with some drawbacks. In this article, I will give some reasons not to buy iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
There are confusions to choose right one because Apple launched three new iPhones at ones. In my opinion, two of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus does not make any sense and why Apple launched these phones. So without wasting your time I am giving 7 reasons not to buy iPhone 8.
7 Reasons Not To Buy iPhone 8 :
1 . There is no Design 2 . Display 3 . Color Options 4 . iPhone X 5 . Pricing 6 . Battery 7 . Glass Back
1 . Design
Design wise there is no difference between iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus. iPhone 8 looks similar to iPhone 6. The only difference is iPhone 7 Plus has Aluminum back and iPhone 8 plus has a glass back. This new iPhone should technically be called iPhone 7s or 7s Plus.
2. Color Options
The new iPhone 8 comes with three color options – Space Grey, Silver, and Gold. Whereas previous models like iPhone 7 comes with the color options of Space Grey, Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, Matte Black, and Jet Black.
3. iPhone X
iPhone is the main reason not to buy iPhone 8. iPhone X will be available for pre-order from October 27. iPhone X is coming with the brand new design with edge to edge display. We can say that this is a brand new iPhone and iPhone 8 does not make any sense in front of iPhone X. Because if you today buy a new iPhone 8 then after a month you can not say that you have the latest iPhone because at that time the new iPhone X will have arrived.
iPhone 7 has no new OLED display. Whereas iPhone X is coming with new OLED display. iPhone 8 still have same HD 1920 by 1080 display. Moreover, there is no edge to edge display. While Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has an edge to edge display and the price is also less than iPhone 8.
Apple increased the price of new iPhones but they have not increased the more price from iPhone 8 to iPhone X. The price of iPhone 8 starts from $699 and price of iPhone 8 Plus starts from $799. Pricing of iPhone X starts from $999. The price difference between iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X is not too big. So pay $200 more and get a fresh looking iPhone with more features.
The battery is same as iPhone 7. No improvement in battery life. This is a big drawback because we are paying more for iPhone 8 and we want more features and improvement. The only improvement is iPhone 8 has wireless charging support, but it requires extra accessories. It supports Qi Wireless charger. iPhone 8 has 1960 mAh battery.
7. Glass Back
iPhone 8 has a glass back which makes it more fragile. iPhone 7 and iPhone 6 has Aluminum Back which makes them durable. iPhone 8 comes with glass back so that it can support Qi Wireless charging. You will need to worry about the glass back and display if you drop it. But in iPhone 7 you will only need to worry about the display of this phone because it has Aluminum Back.
