Bạn đang xem: Iphone 8 plus và iphone x
You’ll notice that hãng apple didn’t call the iPhone X the “iPhone Pro,” lớn match the naming scheme of the iPad & MacBook lines. That may be because inside, the iPhone X & the iPhone 8 Plus are really pretty similar. They vày have some key differences, however. So, which one should you buy? Without further ado, here’s a complete comparison between the iPhone X & the iPhone 8 Plus.
iPhone 8 Plus vs. IPhone X: Size
The iPhone 8 Plus is the bigger phone physically, even though the iPhone X’s display is actually larger when measured diagonally.
The iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen, but it’s surrounded by a bezel with the FaceTime camera on the forehead và the traditional home button on the chin.
The iPhone X features a 5.8-inchSuper Retina HD HDR display.
Apple completely changed that with the iPhone X. It has an edge-to-edge OLED display, which gives it a much higher contrast ratio and support for HDR video. It’s got a higher resolution (2436×1125) and px density too—Apple’s even calling it “Super Retina.”
When comparing these phones side-by-side, the iPhone X is the clear winner by far.The colors are rich & pop, text looks clean & sharp, and the đen is so deep that we find it mesmerizing. This is the best screen we’ve seen on an iPhone.
iPhone 8 Plus: 5.5-inch, 1920×1080 LCD, 401 ppi, 1300:1 contrast ratio iPhone X: 5.8-inch, 2436×1125 OLED, HDR, 458 ppi, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio
iPhone 8 Plus vs. IPhone X: Performance
Inside, the differences aren’t so stark. Both phones pack the same processor, Apple’s 64-bit A11 Bionic system-on-a-chip with an embedded M11 motion coprocessor. Both also have a dedicated neural engine to let AI processing happen on the device.
Apple’s own AirPower charging station is coming in 2018.

iPhone 8 Plus: Up to 21 hours talk time, 13 hours internet use, 14 hours đoạn phim playback, 60 hours audio playback iPhone X: Up khổng lồ 21 hours talk time, 12 hours internet use, 13 hours video clip playback, 60 hours audio playback
iPhone 8 Plus vs. IPhone X: Rear camera
The iPhone 8 Plus still has an edge over the regular iPhone 8 when it comes to camera features. But the iPhone X has the same dual-lens camera on the back as the iPhone 8 Plus, & the same video recording features too.
Phil Schiller describes the sensors & emitters in the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X.
The iPhone X has all of those same features, but its TrueDepth camera goes a lot further. Since you log in to your iPhone X with the new Face ID feature, the TrueDepth camera has special sensors that assist in this secure facial recognition. They include an infrared camera to lớn see you in the dark, a proximity sensor, a flood illuminator, and a dot projector that helps make a 3D map of your face to make sure you’re not a photo.

Or you can turn off Face ID for various features (unlocking your phone, for example) in the Face ID và Passcode section of the Settings app.
On the iPhone 8 Plus, it’s cảm biến ID as normal. The cảm ứng ID sensor is crazy fast, too, and less likely to be fooled, if you’re worried about that. Specifically, Phil Schiller joked onstage at the iPhone X unveiling that an “evil twin” (identical twin, natch) could potentially fool Face ID—but even identical twins have different fingerprints.
In the real world, it all comes down to preference—at this point, cảm biến ID feels like second nature, but after a few days of using Face ID, it feels lượt thích a more seamless experience. Face ID does have its flaws, however—for example, it doesn’t work when your phone is flat on a table or desk, sometimes low-light environments trip it up, & you may have khổng lồ remove your sunglasses to use it outside. But when it works, it works impressively well.

The iPhone 8 Plus is $200 less than the iPhone X, & should be easier to find too.
To be (a little bit) fair, iPhone X và iPhone 8 Plus are Apple’s two most expensive handsets. All the way at the low end, the iPhone SE starts at $349 (buy from Apple), & Apple still offers the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, & iPhone 7 Plus at various price points in between.
