This iPhone version has useful for a day to day use as smartphone but in terms of long term use as it’s durability you’ll be disappointed.
Easily lost its quality of screen brightness, break the back cover once handled in an awkward way
This phone is ok
This phone is good for typing because it’s a plus. Although the camera on the phone is not bright enough when taking a picture in low lighting. The apps I have which are a lot never give me any problems loading. This phone locks up when I am viewing my emails for about 5 seconds. I like this phone because it is durable and has not broken when I have drop it several times.
I was using the Samsung 6 plus. In comparison with is one . I prefer the iPhone.
Great reliable iPhone
This iPhone 8 is reliable and is always on. I have had it now for 8 months without a glitch. It works well with all my other products and having plenty of memory, it never runs out. The camera works well for my needs and basic on the go photos. The pictures look natural without the overdone HDR effect and the videos are clear with great sound. It’s important for me to have a phone at all times, I have very elderly parents and I’m on call for work and no longer have a house phone, this phone has it all with easy dialling and access to great ...apps. With shift work timings having the “do not disturb” function has been a great feature indeed, being able to check emails and google plus ease of “maps”. I have now worked out how to conserve battery life and never had the phone run out or fail. My phone is on 24 hours a day 7 days a week and it works!!! I’m happy.
Excellent phone for day to day usage
The longer lasting battery alowes you to connect throughout the day. The 4g capability allows fast and efficient up and down loads. Excellent slim styling fitted into most pockets with ease.
Nice little phone
Very handsome phone with amazing build quality, wireless charging is a breeze, camera quality & sounds good to ears & eyes, easy to use & once setup is done, excellent battery life & tirelessly charging in car or where ever with charging pad.
The Great Apple 8
In today's world technology needs functional and reliable. I was challenged at many levels when I upgraded from my I-phone from 6 to the 8. I loved the 6, It was like a friend. A friend a had to see goodbye to.! My relationship with the 8 was, like all good relationships, slow at first. But it was the little things that began to win me over like optical image stabilisation. The more time we spent together the more things there were to like. Battery life is good, the camera's color filters are advanced, and it has fast and smooth operations. The I-Phone 8 is my new bestie!!
I am an apple iphone convert.
android phones always frustrated me. Since switching to iphones i have never had bugs. I love the camera, user friendly apps and overall look of the displays. I LOVE IPHONE.
Over all use
Great pictures easy to use. Great Apps to chose from. Sound quality is great for voice and music. Email is easy to use saving and editing a breeze. Best phone ever

It's more than a phone!
This is a phone that won't disappoint. From the moment of unboxing. to transferring data across from my old previous phone the integration was seamless. The size of the phone was nice as it fit comfortably in my hand. the overall quality of the handset was great, I picked the all black option, sleek and visually appealing. The layout for navigation was very user friendly. being new to Apple products was not an issue with this product. The size of the screen is great, you can comfortably read messages such as text, email and other news items wit...h ease. The clarity of the image display is outstanding! It has many options for apps making it user friendly with windows based products which is great in the business sector for my items such as spread sheets, Word docs and presentations all clearly visible on the device. the camera quality and features are simply outstanding. The camera smoothly transitions between different light applications with ease. It has a digital zoom which works well and the picture quality doesn't degrade too bad. The battery life is great as well, you do however need to manage the apps which drain the battery but with Apple's battery monitoring app it works a treat. I have delivered many presentations from my iphone with ease and see this phone covering many demographics from the home user to tech savvy business device. My life is organised through the calendar app, all my appointments are seamlessly set up and reminders are set helping keep myself organised and on time for meetings. Overall, a great phone for work, rest and play. Good job Apple!
I love this Phone!
I just received my new I Phone 8 and I am so impressed with the features. I use my mobile phone's for photo's, not only a good selfie but I love landscape photography. The quality is clear, bright and I feel I don't need to use a filter at all.. I upload my Photo's to instagram and I am impressed with how fast the app opens and my photo's upload. I highly recommend this phone to anyone who, like, has their phone in their hand 24/7.
Love this phone best ever
Previous Apple owner. Had problem with SE model. This has many improvements ie camera functions. Apps work so much better. Love the sound quality.It is a great size. I love the news notifications,and the big array of settings.
This is perfect
Fast and easy good for first time users it simple even my 5 year old could use it no hassles. Camera is on point apps all run smoothly easy to download
PHOTOS NOT QUITE UP TO STANDARD
I have had the iPhone 8 for over a year and have found it to rate poorly when taking photos.
The editing tools are very basic for photos.
The other issue I have is the complexity of storing photos. If I delete them from my camera, they will reappear once I log on to my computer. It would be nice to choose and keep the consistency.
The size is also an issue. It won’t fit most gimbles.
I was so excited to buy this when it came out but I find it OK only. Not as great as what I thought it would be. I think the main issue is how apply tries to control everything.
The size is perfect and that is the main reason I wanted it as it isn't too big or too small. The camera is fantastic except in the evening or dark. I can't seem to get decent photo's they are always still on the dark & grainy side no matter what settings I use. Daytime is fantastic.
The colour brightness and display is amazing.
I've had quite a few iphones in the pa...st but this one is making me reconsider buying another one. I find it extremely hard to back up my photo's to a computer and there is not enough icloud storage to do that way. Nearly every time I connect it to a windows computer it detects it but not the photo's. I have spent HOURS trying to get my photo's saved to my computer and always a hassle. I have also had issues with this lagging on apps and taking a while to load them. Battery does not last as long as what other ones did but apparently my battery life is great according to apple.
Love how I can run my business using this phone! From social media to editing quick videos. Everything can be done! Apps run smoothly and great display! Love it so much
Not so great
I have to say I was excited to get this new phone but unfortunately it did not meet my expectations.... I have had constant trouble with jamming screen, cutting off calls and generally not working as well as the 7. But the Camera - WOW I love it - I have taken the best photos with this phone in Portrait mode using both cameras. Hoping the X will impress me a little more.
The Best of the last generation
The iPhone 8 is the greatest iteration of the last generation of iPhone. The camera quality is decent at night however the lights can be blurry or grainy. The phone states water-resistant and I can confirm that it works well no problems after dunking it in the pool. The durability of the phone is sensitive due to the glass construction but feels very elegant in the hand. I have been using the phone for calling and casual texting but I have used it for heavy texting and this has caused a lower battery life outcome than expected. apps run smoothl...y through time but slow down over time and this is because battery throttling does occur to iPhones. The display is perhaps the best 1080p LCD screen on the market. overall my use of the phone has been excellent and I have been satisfied by all of it except battery degradation through a 2-year run span.
Great upgrade decision
I upgraded to the iPhone 8 256GB from the iPhone 6 32GB and it was the best decision I have ever made. Great value for money. Camera quality was a big jump from my previous device and Apple have made it a lot easier to use the later devices.
I’ve been an IPhone user for many years now since the IPhone 3 came out which by the way was quite Amazing at that time ...
I use my phone for messaging calls and social media as well as emails
The camera is very disappointing
The phone keeps erasing information and turning off by itself and it’s less than a year old The battery life is already failing and it is starting to heat up when charging my other I phones lasted a long time this one is less than a year old and already unreliable I personally am very disappointed
No need to upgrade
If you like the simplicity of Apple's operating system. If you like an actual physical home button and 3D Touch. If you want a 'better than decent' camera on your phone, and, importantly, actually like the compact 'fits perfectly into my pocket and it's lightweight' Apple design, then you are just like me. I LOVE my iPhone 8. Wireless charging with the glass back, slim, perfect balance in my hand, excellent screen, that's enough for me, thanks. Got my wife the iPhone XR, Apple's World-Wide No 1 seller because her iPhone 6s 's photos were just not cutting it. I don't like the XR, sure, camera is a bit better and the screen is huge, but it is soooo bulky and heavy and let's not even talk about the high price. Thanks but no thanks.
