Does everything I need it to
I’m happy with the functionality of the phone and all of the features. If you want a great phone, something not the latest one out, this is for you. You can pick one up second hand for a great price.
Purchased in July 2019 for $400.00.
Was better before the latest update nerfed it
I generally like apple products, but cannot stand the way the company intentionally releases updates that are either too complicated for the older models to handle, or as came out a few years ago, releasing updates that slow the phone intentionally. With the issue of product waste aside, this renders the product much less desirable than one intended to last for a longer period of time.

Sticking to apple for now
Seriously considered leaving Apple behind. This is the last chance. My biggest issue is with the amount of GB on the phone and iCloud storage I don’t think I should have to pay for storage. But otherwise, standard iPhone. No issues with it yet..
Powerful with great performance
This iPhone is a beast and performs as well as most laptops. The visual experience is fish with no lag. Typing is easy with great feedback. Despite being a phone the sound quality is excellent
As always with Apple products the build quality is outstanding
I really like it but it’s not much different to the 7
Satisfied everything runs like a typical iPhone software, apps run smoothly, no lag in typing and easily to pick up how to use the phone in general. I really like it
I love my iPhone
I have been team iPhone for years now . They are by far the best brand and easiest to use. I use my phone for EVERYTHING and this phone means I don’t need to use a computer. The apps are easy and clear and make my life easier by far.
Purchased in September 2018 at Optus for $1,100.00.
Haven’t had any issues with this phone yet and i’ve had it for about 3 years. holds charge well and camera is good. I use my phone every day for everything and it’s served me well. Definitely recommend this phone, ideal size too
Does what you’d expect of an iPhone. Lot of features, more than I or most people would use, but I’m invested in the Apple platform now, so stuck with it. It’s good, but I’d say a bit over priced.
Purchased in October 2017.
Reliable good phone. Camera is okay but have been a little disappointed with some pictures as using the phone now instead of a camera. Screen is bright and clear and works well with apps.
Absolutely hate it! Pain every day!
iPhone is just overpriced piece of junk. I have to use as it’s a corporate device and I have no choice. UI is 10 years old. Functionality is 10 years old. All stock applications you have to be replaced with Google equivalents on day 1. Safari, maps, mail app, stock keyboard, photos app, calendar app, contacts app and all another are terrible. Battery dies after 8 hours of moderate use. Apps freezing constantly. All apple can recommend is to reset the phone. Ideally every day. . Memory management is terrible. Floating home application grid drive...s me nuts. Closing all open applications make my thumb sore. Switching mobile hotspot on and off is painful. All latest features were available in Android phones 2 to 5 years ago. Android phones with similar features just much better OS cost third of the price. Everyday use just makes me an angry person. Absolutely hate this iPhone. Cant think of a single thing I would like about it

Great phone love it
IIve had my iPhone 8 for a year and a half now and I love it it is a great phone and a great size. I find the operation of the phone to run smoothly and easy to use I love the home button as it makes it easier for me to navigate the phone.
The camera on the phone is great I think it takes beautiful photos even in low light conditions.
I use my phone as my phone to call and text, to use the Internet, to do work documents and to take photos.
I love that my phone is still small enough to fit in my pocket and fits comfortably in my hand. It charges quickly and mostly has a long lasting battery.
I also use my phone as a baby monitor as its linked to my babies camera and heartbeat monitor
Purchased in May 2017.
Use it everyday
The camera is high-quality the phone quality isnt great, camera is high-quality, the audio quality isnt great great, hold all of my apps and has large storage space but screen is very sensitive
I bought this phone over the Iphone X and I couldnt be happier. Its a functional reliable phone and I have never experienced an issue. I have no complaints about this.

Its okay not the best
Im satisfied with the camera quality but Ive noticed over time it gets worse, Ive had my iPhone 8 for two years and now its really slow and the battery life is pretty bad I find myself having to charge it 3 or more times a day I recently updated my phone and its running really badly, when I first purchased it brand new it worked really well but now its not as good.

Apple has deliverately configured the iPhone 8 to hinder the use of wired earphones. Calls are blocked.
iPhone 8 deliberately configured to hinder the use of wired earphones. Connect them thru the lightning port and everything will sound ok except phone calls or Voicemails; the earphones go dead and the sound comes out of the phone as if no earphones were connected. Awful trick.

My Best Phone
I have used the iPhone 8 for the past 2years and have had no problems at all.
The display is crisp and clear, settings are easy to use and adjust and photos are true to colour. Apps work well and internet is quick and easy.
I have no intention of replacing it any time soon
Has its glitches but does the job
Great camera, easy to use, a bit fragile but ok if you use a screen protector... get the big screen if you use it for things other then making calls.
Purchased in December 2017.
its fast its up to date has airplay and homekit on it and its has a home button has a loud speaker its good for gaming and the latest app on it
Purchased in February 2018.

Can I play game in this phone?
