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, updated

 

If the iPhone X is best iPhone, what does that make the 8?

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 iPhone 8 has plenty of power under the hood, but lacks the extra camera features and design upgrade of the better iPhone 8 Plus and X.

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...

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.

iPhone 8 Review

 

"Familiarity breeds contempt," or so the old proverb goes, and never has that been more topical than for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. In any other year from the past decade, Apple's new smartphones would be the topic of endless fascination and...

Wireless charging is convenient ; Camera is excellent ; A11 Bionic processor is fast ; Battery life is solid

Bezels are big in comparison to other recent phones ; Water-resistance falls short of rivals ; Portrait Lighting can be hit-or-miss ; Can you handle iPhone X envy?

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...

iPhone 8 becomes OLED iPhone

 

Apple iPhone 8 sports OLED display : Initially, it was thought that the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be succeeded by the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. This name change has been in use by the American manufacturer for several years now, but according to...

In addition, there are indications that Apple provides its new iPhone 8 with Augmented Reality. Chairman of the Board Tim Cook has already announced the company is planning on releasing an AR iPhone in the future.

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
