iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 11: Should You Upgrade?

The iPhone 11 is the most affordable of the 2019 models, being sold by Apple at $699, in comparison to the $999 price tag for the iPhone 11 Prop and $1099 for the Pro Max. Some may believe that the cheapest version is also considerably bigger in comparison to its bigger brothers, but that is not the case.

It includes the latest chip designed by the Cupertino giant, an excellent dual camera and many of the camera tricks which are also offered by the other devices. However, Apple continues to sell the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus at the launch price introduced in 2017. A new model will come features which aren’t available in the case of older devices, but the price may be quite attractive. Read the comparison offered below and learn more about the two devices.

Size matters

iPhone 11 is considerably larger in comparison to the iPhone 8, but the iPhone 8+ is bigger than both devices, even if the newer one has a larger screen surface. The notch present on the iPhone 11 facilitates this trade-off as the older models are accompanied by generous bezels.


An IP68  water-resistance certifies that iPhone 11 can withstand water damage for a longer period.

Smile for the camera

While the iPhone 8 has a single camera, the 8 Plus and iPhone 11 offer a dual-camera setup.  A TrueDepth camera present on the front of the iPhone 11 is superior in comparison to the 7MP lens present on the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Smarter, faster, better

In 2017 the A11 Bionic chip was one of the best but the years have not been kind. The A13 Bionic chipset is considerably faster and topples the older chip in all the benchmarks.


A superior battery capacity makes the iPhone 11 a default champion as it lasted for 11 and 16 minutes when a popular test was used.  The iPhone 8 Plus achieves a similar endurance while the iPhone lasted for 9 hours and 54 minutes.


The iPhone 11 is the undisputed champion and a superior choice.
