iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X: 3 new generation smartphones

Clean design

The design of the new iPhone is made of ultra-resistant glass, both front and rear. The glass is custom designed and has a 50% thicker reinforcement layer. Apple has also equipped its Smartphone with an aerospace-quality aluminum outline in full color. This laser welded structure reinforces the device for greater resistance. This new iPhone resists splashes, water and dust (IP67 standard).

Wireless charging

The new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X charge wirelessly. It suffices to place the device on its support. Charging is by induction. Note that the charging station is sold separately on the Apple Store.

Retina HD display with True Tone and 3D Touch

The Retina HD screen offers a wide spectrum of colors and high contrasts to give more naturalness and impressive clarity to everything displayed. True Tone technology offers you optimal visual comfort by adjusting the white balance according to the ambient light for using your phone in all circumstances with images as natural as on paper and above all a reduction in eyestrain.

12MP camera with optical stabilization, wide angle, telephoto and background blur

iPhone X has 2 12 MP cameras with wide angle, optical telephoto, 10x zoom and optical image stabilization

According to Apple, the apple brand is today the one offering the best quality in terms of photos. The results presented by Apple confirm this with excellent quality photos. The latest generation of iPhone has one to two 12MP cameras, faster than the iPhone 7, with optical image stabilization, wide angle, telephoto, 4K ehealth depending on the model (see below). On devices with 2 cameras, it is possible to take photos with a blur in the background. A TrueDepth camera also analyzes your face to reproduce your expressions on 12 animojis, small animals that speak for you and which you can send to your friends.

No more health home button!

The health home button disappears on this new generation of iPhone. One touch of the screen is enough to turn on the device. And to go to the reception, you just have to swipe the screen with your finger from bottom to top.

Power +++

The latest Apple iPhone has a 6-core A11 chip which is significantly more powerful than the A10 chip fitted to the iPhone 7 (70% gain)!

Augmented reality !

Augmented reality invites itself on the latest iPhone thanks to iOS11, the major update of Apple's mobile operating system. Augmented reality consists of integrating virtual elements into reality! Thus, the camera on your Smarphone displays what it sees but also integrates objects or people into it. This function is very useful, for example, to see how a piece of furniture spotted in a store will go in your house.

iPhone X: the top iPhones with 5.8 "screen with rounded edges and corners

According to Tim Cook, Apple's managing director, "The iPhone X is the biggest leap since the arrival of the iPhone."

Unlike the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the iPhone X (pronounced "iPhone ten" in English) has a 5.8 inch super retina HD screen (less than that of the last Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ) and OLED technology. With its rounded edges that follow its curves, the device merges with the screen. Apple used a new technology to follow the curves of the case, even in its corners! The choice of OLED technology for this Smartphone is really a plus. The screen offers sumptuous colors and intense blacks thanks to a very high contrast (1,000,000: 1)!

The iPhone X has two 12MP cameras with wide angle and telephoto (10x zoom for photos and 6x zoom for videos). Its lens brings more light than on the iPhone 8. The rendering is also better with a more powerful chip and on-board artificial intelligence.

Innovation on this device, it offers facial recognition (Face ID system) to facilitate switching on the phone and online payments via the Apple Pay payment system.

Finally, its autonomy is 2 hours greater than the other iPhone models (7 and 8)!

Price: from 1159 € depending on the storage capacity (64 GB and 256 GB). 2 colors (gray and black). Buy on Boulanger

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are relatively similar in structure and functionality except the size of the screen and the fact that one has a second camera and a telephoto lens.

The screen is a 1.400: 1 and 1.300: 1 panoramic multi-touch panoramic LCD screen for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus respectively, significantly less than the OLED screen of the iPhone X. They nevertheless offer remarkable quality

Both devices are equipped with Touch ID technology (unlocking of the phone and possible payment thanks to the analysis of a fingerprint) but not facial recognition.

iPhone 8: the most economical and lightest

The iPhone 8, the most economical, smallest and lightest model also of the last 3 Smartphones offered by Apple, has a 4.7 inch screen and a weight of 148 grams (174 g for the iPhone 8 Plus and 202 g for iPhone X). It is offered in a 64 GB and 256 GB storage memory version.

iPhone 8 Plus: the right compromise with 2 cameras, wide angle and a larger screen
