iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone 12 Comparison

iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone 12: iPhone 12 has excellent performance

The newer iPhone 12 has better components than the iPhone 8 Plus. For example, it has a bigger battery, so you can enjoy a longer battery life. It's also about 30% faster due to the more powerful processor. The iPhone 12 also has more RAM (4GB versus 3GB in the iPhone 8 Plus). It is also the only one of the two that's compatible with 5G technology. In terms of photography, it also has the advantage with its 12 MP sensor, compared to only 7 MP for the iPhone 8 Plus.

iPhone 8 Plus, a physical button and a compact size

If you like having a physical button, you'll prefer the iPhone 8 Plus. It allows you to return to the home screen or unlock the smartphone with a fingerprint reader. On the iPhone 12, this button is absent, replaced by swiping and facial recognition. The iPhone 8 Plus is also more compact than the iPhone 12, with a 5.5-inch screen compared to the iPhone 12's 6.1-inch screen. This is suitable for users who like to use their device with one hand, but it may not be enough for anyone who consumes a lot of content on their smartphone. This is especially true because the resolution is nearly 40% better on the iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 is the clear best choice if you're looking for more features. It's more powerful, and it'll also receive software updates for longer. The iPhone 8 Plus is affordable, and it's a good compromise between price and performance. It's also suitable for users who aren't comfortable with facial recognition technology or who just like a physical button.
