True fans of the line of smartphones from Apple fondly remember the first iPhone 5 and 5s of 2007. Today, this gadget is already a classic of the genre, despite the fact that it is still in demand among buyers. But 4-5 years ago, the main disadvantage of iPhones was called a small screen diagonal. Steve Jobs, the founder and mastermind of the company, categorically did not want to release smartphones with a huge screen. If the client wants a 6-9 inch display, take iPad or a laptop. But market demands have changed. Developers have heard the pleas of people and, starting with the 'seven', the company produces gadgets the size of the palm.
With the release of new models in 2018, questions arose about what weight and dimensions iPhone 8. Traditionally, the company offers users two options for smartphones: iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The Plus variant is characterized by an extended battery capacity, a large screen size, and special features.
