Interestingly enough, news just in, confirms that the battery size of the awaited iPhone X is larger than the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone X will contain a 2,715mAh battery, the iPhone 8 sports a 1,821mAH and the iPhone 8 Plus a 2,675mAh cell. Random Access Memory (RAM) capacity, which is essentially memory, not to be confused with storage space, is also larger on the iPhone X, it weighs in with 3GB in total, that’s more than the iPhone 8 but is equivalent to the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus. All these issues are crucial to mobile photographers, good news.
Just published by David Cardinal for DxOMark the Apple iPhone 8 Plus review makes interesting reading. “The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is the best-performing mobile device camera we have ever tested. Its overall DxOMark Mobile score of 94 sets a new record, beating out the 90 points for both the Google Pixel and the HTC U11, as well as the 92 that its sibling iPhone 8 just scored. Its Photo score of 96 is also a new record, blowing past the Pixel’s 90. For Video, its score of 89 is among our highest, but tied with the HTC U11 and slightly below the Pixel’s 91. Of course, the Pixel is nearly a year old now, so it makes sense that Apple’s new flagship is breaking new ground”, said Cardinal.
