iPhone 12 Pro Vs iPhone 8! (Comparison) (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 28, 2020

Welcome back everyone time to do another comparison this time around between the iphone 12 pro and the iphone 8. now the iphone 8 came on in 2017 the iphone 12 pro is that brand new iphone from apple this cost a thousand dollars brand new this one costs i think like a couple hundred i think like two hundred dollars in the used market and i'll find the cheapest ones about these link them down in the description below you can get them from there and help support the channel at the same time now side by side you can definitely see that

The iphone 12 pro is bigger in pretty much every single dimension than the iphone 8 it's wider it's longer and rightfully so the iphone 8 has that 4.7 inch ips panel on the front so definitely a smaller panel to today's standards you have quite a bit of bezel on the top and bottom i can say that right and uh you know that you have the home button standard stuff it's definitely not an ugly panel but when you compare to a lot of phones that we have nowadays it's definitely not the best looking

Phone in the world the se2 that came out this year also reincarnated the same pretty much body so it's definitely not outdated but it definitely is a bit of an older design for sure but when you look at something like the iphone 12 pro with its 6.1 inch super retina xdr oled panel it definitely looks far better in my opinion than the iphone 8 and that is something that i don't think it's like a deal breaker or anything but it is something to kind of consider when you have a phone that looks as good

And as up-to-date as the iphone 12 pro you're definitely going to feel like you have a more you know i guess like more of a solid device in my opinion and that's something that's pretty important to note in my opinion so definitely when it comes down to both i think the iphone 12 pro is the better looking one the iphone 8 still looks okay for today's standards but definitely doesn't look as good as a 12 pro in terms of the thickness you can definitely see that the iphone 12 pro definitely looks a little bit thicker

Than the iphone 8. i think the iphone 8 is actually pretty thin and i think it's from what i've heard one of the thinnest iphones apples ever made so that definitely looks pretty good in my opinion and on the back i have a cracked back on my iphone 8 but i glass back on both frosted glass back on the iphone 12 pro that looks pretty good triple camera setup with the lidar sensor iphone 8 has that single camera setup but definitely like the back of the iphone 12 pro more and in terms of everything else and definitely when it comes down to it i

Think the iphone 12 pro is the better build phone for sure you're getting wireless charging on both the magsafe capability on the iphone 12 pro you're getting better ip certification from the 12 pro as well so that's another thing and i think the 12 pro is just a better feeling phone overall so i think in terms of the outside the 12 pro definitely wins in terms of software they're both running ios so it's a pretty easy comparison the iphone 12 pro is about three years newer than the

Iphone 8 so realistically it's probably going to be lasting about three years longer which is pretty typical and i'm expecting that and i'll definitely say with both there you're still getting the same day updates for as long as they're supported but realistically in terms of the longevity of both the iphone 8 is probably going to end support realistically sooner than what the iphone 12 pro is but still for the next couple of years you probably won't have to you know

Worry about updates or anything so in terms of software that pretty much covers it up let's go and do a little bit of a speed test between them the iphone 12 pro has that apple a14 bionic chip inside of it with six gigabytes of ram where the iphone 12 has that apple 11 bionic chip inside of it with two gigabytes of ram so let's go and see which one is a faster one between both of these okay now that we're back let me go and clear all the apps in the background and they're cleared out so we can start

Loading up the app store three two one and you can see the 12 pro is definitely far ahead of the iphone 8. there's a pretty big noticeable difference getting into some gameplay let's see if there's a difference here and or in terms of the smoothness and scrolling speeds seem about the same i don't really see a big difference between them so that's probably the same there now as always i have a bunch of these third-party apps we can go and get into let's do let's do temple run two three two one

And already we're kind of seeing a big difference i think the 12 pro is pretty noticeably ahead of the iphone 8. i feel like we're going to be loaded okay so we're close to being fully loaded on the iphone 12 pro we were still loading on the iphone 8 on that front panel and definitely you can see that was quite a bit of difference getting into the actual gameplay let's see if there's a difference and i don't think there's going to be any stuttering on either one but i'll definitely say when it comes down to the performance it's about the

Same but the loading speed was definitely far faster on the iphone 12 pro bofa 321 and the 12 pro already loaded and the iphone 8 plus or iphone 8 eventually gets into it not the iphone 8 standard iphone let's do dropbox 321 iphone 12 pro faster iphone 8 really behind quizlet 321 again 12 pro faster iphone 8 behind it netflix three two one and i feel like i'm going to continue calling this the 8 plus this whole entire video iphone 12 pro gets into it iphone 8 shortly behind it snake vs

Blocks 321 and the 12 pro gets into it iphone 8 shortly behind it and for some reason this app keeps glitching up on the iphone 12 pro i don't really get it i think it eventually it snaps into it but that's very weird i don't know why the 12 pro keeps glitching there we can do paper i o i don't think oh i do have a three two one now this game opens up this way which i don't really like games that open up in landscape i guess it's okay and it is technically

Faster on the iphone 12 pro shortly behind on the iphone 8. let's do stack three two one and the 12 pro is faster iphone 8 eventually gets into it but it's very short like there's not that big of a difference between them but i think the performance will probably be overall better on games you know these games it doesn't really matter it's a small game but a bigger type of apps you're probably gonna get a better performance on the iphone 12 pro let's do fruit ninja three two one now

Both of them may be on different versions of the game so kind of keep that in mind it's been very weird but even to get into this panel was faster on the iphone 12 pro and i guess they're on the same type of thing so i even to get into this panel it was faster on the iphone 12 pro i'll probably just leave it there for future comparisons let's do facebook don't have it let's do paper out two three two one and again the 12 pro is faster iphone 8 a little bit behind it not a crazy big difference but

Definitely noticeable one and i think if you're going from one game to the other constantly you're probably going to be getting a better performing phone from the iphone 12 pro i mean it's just kind of a given we can go and end it off with the road racing three three two one and i mean this one is kind of obvious as to which one may be the winner every single time you know i think the 12 pro has consistently been the faster one every single time i don't know if it's going to change here maybe it will i don't know

And the 12 pro still is the faster one the iphone 8 is probably going to be behind and i think definitely the iphone 8 held its own down i think i was surprised by about this is the whole entire performance of this phone the 12 pro obviously is the faster one as expected the iphone 8 i guess is never going to get into it or maybe it will um you're definitely going to see a better performing device and just a faster device overall

On the iphone 12 pro than on the iphone 8 you can see how big of a difference that was there was a lot of time that i had to spend just kind of rambling and just talking to kind of even past the time that was huge so definitely when it comes down to the performance and you know speed and app openings and all that you're definitely going to be getting a faster performing device on the iphone 12 pro and you actually have three times the amount of ram on the iphone 12 pro as

Well and in terms of ram management it's definitely looking like the iphone 12 pro it's going to be doing better here too every single app that i've opened for the most part i guess has opened up kind of the same except for temple run 2. actually the iphone 8 is doing a pretty good job here too and like i said performance is definitely going to be faster on the iphone 12 pro rent management has actually kind of been about the same except for that

Temple run 2 restarting the iphone 8 has actually done a pretty decent job of keeping that out open too let's do snake versus blocks and that's very weird why did the iphone 8 was able to keep that up in the background but the iphone 12 pro actually restarted that one that absolutely makes no sense to me at all let's see this one the iphone 8 kind of restarted so i think the ram management is very weird on these devices i don't know if it's a software issue but i've been experiencing it pretty much in every

Single way so i don't know what's going to happen and hopefully apple fixes it with ios 14 but ram management i don't think it's crazy faster i think the performance is definitely a better you know indicator of the you know how much faster the phone is rather than the ram management so in terms of speed iphone 12 pro is faster ram management is a little bit better but not as good as i was expecting so that pretty much covers it there let's go ahead on the cameras stated before

Triple camera setup on the iphone 12 pro with the lidar sensor iphone 8 has a single 12 megapixel wide angle lens you have that 12 megapixel wide angle lens 12 megapixel shorter than 12 megapixel telephoto lens on the 12 pro now in terms of the uis and everything they look almost identical you do not get that extra sensors on the iphone 8 which kind of sucks but i think that you know in terms of the way they look and everything and the way they're going to take photos it's going to be about the same

You can do 4k 860 on the back camera on the front camera though you can do 4k 60 on the front of the iphone 12 pro but you can't do it on the iphone 8 only 1080p and i feel like that's probably going to be the biggest problem between these two the iphone 8s data before i think has an overall really good camera for a 2017 phone i think it's held up extremely well and i feel like the only downside of it would be that lack of dual camera setup you can do 4k 60 you still have a lot of capability for the most part

But definitely when you compare it to the 12 pro it definitely doesn't hold up as well i think especially in this day and age when we have phones that can do way more different things and you know has way more capability you have portrait mode on this phone you have 4k 60 on the front camera you have night mode and all those different things it's definitely going to make a better phone overall in my opinion on the 12 pro because of the camera sensors let alone the software improvements and

All these other things and you have those extra sensors too which are really cool in my opinion so definitely when it comes down to it i think the iphone 12 pro it's probably the better camera the iphone 8 is still good enough for the most part but the iphone 12 pro definitely wins now ending it off with the battery life the iphone 8 has a much smaller battery than the iphone 12 pro but the 12 pro had a smaller battery than its predecessor and i've already done a battery test between these two and i pretty much found that the iphone

8 did not last as long as the 12 pro by a couple of hours and i think i should be having this battery comparison hopefully up on my second channel before i upload this video but but if not the iphone 12 pro does have better battery life than the iphone 8 so in terms of everything it's a kind of sum up this whole entire video should you pick up the iphone 8 should you pick up the iphone 12 pro which one should you get i can definitely tell you in my opinion if you have an iphone 8 going to the 12 pro is going to be a pretty good upgrade

You're getting a better looking screen just a better looking phone overall a longer lasting phone better cameras you know better performance all those different things better battery life but i still feel like with the iphone 8 if you can make it last a little bit longer i'll say go for it you know i think the iphone 8 is still a pretty decent phone and it's i would consider this kind of like a mid-range budget phone i don't think it's a really good budget phone you know in this day and age but i would say it's like a pretty decent one if you

If you already have it you know i think this phone sells a lot of qualities that still make it a pretty good phone you have a really good build quality wireless charging ip certification ios updates that are still going to be supporting on this phone for a long time in my opinion probably it's gonna be lasting until like 2023 or something i'm not really too sure that's just a number throughout there performance is still pretty good it's still pretty smooth and for a majority of people out there they just want a

Phone that just works and with the iphone 8 it's not a new phone it's been out for a couple of years everybody already knows how it performs it's a good stable phone for the most part i feel like the main areas with the iphone 8 kind of locks in it's probably screen you know it doesn't have the best looking screen the battery isn't the best the cameras aren't the best but they're still really good enough for the most part if you're somebody who's like a student or somebody who just you know doesn't really care about their phones too much

The iphone 8 i think is still a really decent phone for a majority of people and if you have it i would recommend keeping it until the iphone 13 comes out but if you have the iphone 12 pro or if you have all the money in the world getting the iphone 12 pro is obviously it's the better phone here for sure but i don't think you can go wrong with keeping your iphone 8 i would recommend keeping it even until the iphone 12 pro goes down in the used market that's probably what i would end up doing but

That really pretty much covers it up for the most part if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below hit the like button tell me so much but definitely hit that subscribe button every single subscriber that we get really discount so me so much if you guys can hit that also check out the other links down in the description as well my twitter my instagram my other channels more importantly everything else i love every single one of you guys hopefully i'll catch you guys
