Apple iPhone 8 Smartphone Review

 

Step by step. We already suspected that Apple would only show a slightly improved version of its smartphone this year. The eighth-generation iPhone from Cupertino gets a revised chassis and more performance, which is at least more than in the previous...

high build quality ; True-Tone display ; fast SoC ; great camera ; accurate GPS ; Bluetooth 5.0 ; high Wi-Fi performance ; many LTE bands ; water and dust protection

storage cannot be expanded ; only 12 months warranty ; no stereo jack ; only average speakers ; display resolution could be higher ; heavier than the predecessor ; very limited NFC functionality

The iPhone 8 might be the last of its kind, the last Apple smartphone with a home button and IPS display. If this is the case, the Americans at least gave us a very good final chapter. We once again miss major new features or innovations, but the...

Apple iPhone 8

 

The iPhone 8 anchors Apple's 2017 phone line, but it isn't where the future is.

Wireless charging. Powerful new processor.

Lacks the latest modem features and bands. Single camera is a disadvantage for AR. Not a huge upgrade over last year's model, which is still available.

The iPhone 8, at $699 and $849, suffers from one major problem: the iPhone 7 is now $549. And the 8 just isn't $150 better—yet. The major improvements here are wireless charging, which I still think is basically a curiosity, and the A11 processor. The...

Apple iPhone 8 review

 

The iPhone 8 hits some high notes, but it's overshadowed by the iPhone X.

Speedy processor ; Class-leading camera ; Wireless charging ; Slick software

Dated design ; Fast charging costs extra

This is an incremental update over the iPhone 7 and, as good as it is, we’re not convinced it merits a jump of $50 in the starting price. If Apple could have put a 5-inch OLED with a 1080p resolution into this body, it would have been easy to recommend...

iPhone 8 review

 

On Nov. 3, Apple will roll out its seductive sports car of a phone: the all-new, totally redesigned, edgy, giant-screened iPhone X .

The iPhone 8 offers wireless charging, lightning-fast performance and small but solid upgrades to its camera, screen and speakers. Its starting storage size is a roomy 64GB, double that of the iPhone 7.

This phone has the same pedestrian design, missing headphone jack and battery life as the iPhone 7 -- and no dual camera either. The iPhone 8 costs a bit more than baseline new iPhones in years past, and comes only in black, silver and a new shade of...

The sensible, speedy iPhone 8 makes a nice upgrade to the iPhone 6S and earlier siblings, but we won't know until November how it compares to the much pricier iPhone X.

Review: Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

 

This isn't 2017's most exciting iPhone. But the 8 shines even in the shadow of the X.

The world is going camera-first, and this is a kick-ass camera. The glass design is a big improvement. Wireless charging makes everything better.

There’s a lot of bezel on this phone. Next to the iPhone X, it already feels outdated. The iPhone 8 lets you do so much, but iOS 11 buries too much of it.

If you want an awesome iPhone, this is it. I’d recommend the 8 Plus, if you can stomach the size, because the added camera power and battery life are really nice to have. But both are fantastic phones, upgrades over even last year’s model. But if you...

Apple iPhone 8 vs LG G6

 

We take the new iPhone 8 with its fresh glass design, blazing chipset and improved camera, and throw it against the LG phone that is one of the first brand-name owners of a 2:1 display, the G6.

Apple iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8

 

The iPhone 8 is likely to remain the main sales driver for Apple, due to its lower cost and pocket/palm-friendly size. As such, its most logical rival (outside of Apple's own ecosystem) is the Galaxy S8, which has been around for quite some time now,...

Apple iPhone 8 Review

 

We're going to be giving all of the Apple smartphones their due, but today we get things started on the ground level as we tear into the iPhone 8.

Unbeatable performance ; Great-sounding speakers ; Effortlessly beautiful camera ; Wireless + fast charging support ; Very welcome base-level storage boost

Extra glass causes durability concerns ; Fewer color options ; Presence of more and more higher-end iPhone models makes this one feel like a compromise

Apple iPhone 8 Review

 

As you would expect with an iPhone, the latest iteration is very easy to use, features the best camera and has an excellent display. Of course, these are all things we said about the iPhone 7. However, while the iPhone 8 doesn't seem to be very...

The iPhone 8 has the best-performing processor on the market.

It doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack.

At first glance, the iPhone 8 isn't very different from the iPhone 7, but its new A11 Bionic processor makes it the best-performing smartphone on the market.

iPhone 8 Is World's Fastest Phone (It's Not Even Close)

 

The A11 Bionic chip inside the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus blows away every other phone (and even some laptops) in synthetic benchmarks and real-world tests.
