8 Things I Love About iPhone 8 Plus
Ever since Apple released their first iPhone in 2007, I’ve been constantly following and upgrading my iPhone to experience the features and improvements on the subsequent releases. I’m a huge Apple fan tbh. Despite all the innovations released by various Android phone makers, the iPhone remains the easiest phone to use in my own opinion.
After unboxing my new iPhone 8 Plus, here are the top 8 things I love about my new iPhone:
All Glass Design
You may think that a phone made of glass is a little scary and somewhat breakable but it’s completely the opposite; the iPhone 8 is made of durable glass material both at the back and front.
The glass panel enables support for wireless charging, a feature that I’ve been waiting for. The new iPhone 8 Plus even comes with new colors like space gray, silver and gold.
This feature allows you to take a picture as if you’re in a studio and this means that you’ll get better results each time.
The new portrait mode produces quality photos with sharper foregrounds and more naturally blurred backgrounds.
Apple lets users charge effortlessly without the hassle of tangled wires and connections. The glass back enables easy wireless charging.
Most Powerful Chip Ever
A11 Bionic chip is one of the most powerful and high performing cores which is 25% more efficient than A10 and 70% faster than A10.
As a travel and food blogger, one of the things that I like the most with the new iPhone is the performance of its built-in camera. Apple is proud to say that iPhone 8 / 8 Plus is complete with all the features you need in order to take the best pictures. I have tested it and so far Im loving the photos 🙂 I will post sample photos soon.
iPhone 8 is made of water-resistant materials like “laser-welded steel foundation and an aerospace-grade aluminum band” to make sure your smartphone is protected from elements like water, dust or any form of liquid.
New Retina HD Display
Apple boasts of high-definition resolution and pixels which means better screen quality.
Viewing your smartphone that has augmented reality features allows you to see things clearly and immaculately like you’re really experiencing the scene personally.
