Journalists of the publication Consumer Reports, specializing in the comparison of goods and services, called the iPhone 8 Plus a better acquisition than the iPhone X. Despite the revolutionary appearance and advanced set of features, syatka “was not without its drawbacks, which did not allow her to win the title of an ideal smartphone.
main drawback trends in Consumer Reports found a low resistance to damage. Two of the three test copies of the iPhone X could not stand falling onto the concrete floor, irretrievably losing their functionality in the first series of throws from a height of about 80 cm. The smartphone case remained intact, and the main damage was on the displays.
iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in the same test proved to be much better, getting only a couple of burrs on the aluminum frame. Problems in the performance of the display modules were not observed at all. It is possible that the manufacturer’s use of the IPS matrix, which turned out to be more resistant to damage than the organic counterpart, played a role in this case.
A comparative assessment of the battery life of the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus has become more objective. For this, the staff of Consumer Reports involved a specially trained robot. During testing, the robot made calls, went online and took photographs using a smartphone at the maximum brightness level and with active GPS. As a result, the iPhone 8 Plus worked for 21 hours, whereas the iPhone X is an hour and a half less.
If the difference in battery life seems insignificant to you, and the fragility of the iPhone X is far-fetched, before buying a novelty, journalists Consumer Reports recommends carefully studying the changed interface of the model. Because of the missing Home key, Apple had to pretty much rework its smartphone control method, adding a few new gestures to the system.
