    I'm considering changing phones recently. I used to use Android so this may be my first time to use iPhone. I heard a lot that 8/8p don't have many improvements compared with 7/7p. Is it true? Or other recommendations?

    It has wireless charging, a faster processor and other small improvements, but the only user noticeable improvements are those mentioned

    If you’re coming from an Android get the 8 plus just because it’s the newest out. If you already have a 7 plus then I don’t see a real reason to upgrade to the 8.

    If you want the wireless charging capabilities offered by the iPhone 8 models, that's a good reason to upgrade.

    It has (over the 7P):

    - Glass back
    - True Tone display
    - Wireless charging
    - Faster processor (it’s a beast)
    - Better GPU
    - Better cams (rear) with deeper pixels
    - Can do 4K video @ 60 FPS
    - Slow sync flash
    - HDR support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10 standards.


    Regarding the processor, Apple claims the A11 chip delivers 70% faster multitasking (great given users swap between apps constantly), 30% faster graphics and 25% faster peak CPU performance. In addition Apple says the iPhone 8 Plus is 70% faster than the iPhone 7 Plus in low power mode.



    Maybe a few more things that escape me at the moment ( need coffee :p )
