It looks like while the iPhone 8 is better than the iPhone 7 in many ways, there’s still one thing the iPhone 7 has that is better than the iPhone 8 – battery capacity. According to Apple’s listing on TENAA in China, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus’ batteries are smaller than the batteries found on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
As shown on the listing, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have a 1,821mAh and 2,675mAh battery respectively. The iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus on the other hand, packs a 1.960mAh and 2.900mAh battery on the inside.
Of course, the battery capacity isn’t everything. Apple still claims that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus lasts “about the same” as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. You still get the same amount of talk time (wireless), internet use, video playback and audio playback. However, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have fast charge, giving it up to 50% charge in only 30 minutes; they also support Qi wireless charging too.
Finally, Apple’s listing in TENAA also confirms that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have 2GB and 3GB of RAM respectively. This is the same as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, whereby the larger RAM in the Plus version is likely used to accommodate the bigger display and dual-camera systems.
