At 1 am on September 13, 2017, Apple officially released iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus and iPhone X. Apple fans seemly ready for buying a new iPhone. But when considering purchasing a new phone, we tend to think about the lifetime and safety of the battery. So what’s the differences of battery life between iPhone x and iPhone 8 plus and which one exactly we should choose?

For all their internal improvements, where iPhone 8 Plus will disappoint is its battery life. Apple has stagnated with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 all having similar stamina and history repeats as Apple admits there has been no tangible improvement between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8.But the iPhone X is different. It’s not a major improvement but Apple claims the iPhone X will last ‘up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7’, and below is a chart showing their differences in battery life.
This time Apple doesn’t give the new actual battery capacity parameters, compared only to give a vague description of battery life. The battery life of iPhone X lasts up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7,but the figure of iPhone 8 Plus lasts about the same as iPhone 7 Plus. And the good news is that the new iPhones all add to the fast charging technology, which can charge up to 50% of the power 30 minutes. But you still need to charge your iPhone once a day.
In order to expand battery capacity and battery life, iPhone X has adopted circuitous measures, which is “plane-like PCB/SLP“.The technology can up to dozens of layers that reduce the volume of the main board, and give more space to divide evenly to the battery, so the internal will have more space to the “B” battery. Two pieces of battery use the serial link. Eventually, the battery capacity of iPhone X is 2700 mah. Although it is higher than iPhone 7 1960 mah ,but it is lower than the iPhone than 7 Plus 2900 mah. And the rest makes room to core parts.
In fact, improvements to batteries are usually a key part of smartphone launches. Even the best products are still relatively limited in how long they can function as a single charge. The original iPhone was good for eight hours of internet browsing, for example, so Apple’s devices have only advanced modestly in ten years. So far, manufacturers have tended to focus on improving battery technology, packing more and more energy into less and less space. Those fiery Galaxy Note 7s were a cautionary tale of what can go wrong when this energy gets released as heat. Lately, however, there have been advances. There is still a long way to go, and the main difficulty is getting the estimates of software energy consumption right, especially for lots of different devices at the same time. But the potential over the next five years looks exciting. We were able to show a 40% to 70% reduction in CPU energy use for a couple of specific tasks, and it’s not inconceivable that this could be replicated over all running software.

Combined with better batteries and more improvements to hardware performance, we could be talking about serious gains on battery life. So compared iPhone 8 plus, iPhone X is really worth trying and you are suggested to own one!
