iPhone 8 review

Apple has been releasing iPhone models since 2007, and always their mobile phones have created a buzz because they were always packed up with exciting new features everyone wanted to get their hands on. Apple can be said to be a trendsetter as far as smartphones are concerned, but now it doesn’t seem to be the case, especially since the launch of the iPhone 8. It has been reported by many industry experts after interviewing 1000s of Apple users that the iPhone 8 has probably generated the least excitement among its users. One of the main reason stated is the fact that the iPhone x was announced soon after the launch of the iPhone 8 which took all the excitement away from the iPhone 8 and people started rushing towards the iPhone x, having said that not too many people can afford a mobile phone worth almost £1000. Especially in most parts of the world which are not as advanced as the western hemisphere. The iPhone 8 still charges via a Lightning cable, and you get the same 5W plug in the box. According to Macworld "The iPhone 8 is a gorgeous, sleek and incredibly powerful smartphone."

Design Feel

Since the launch of the iPhone 6, users have been waiting for a new design. There is no doubt about the fact that when the iPhone 6 was released, it creates a significant amount of excitement among its users but there was almost no visible difference between the design of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 7. As far as the size of the iPhone 7 is concerned, it’s nearly the same as iPhone 7 slightly bigger but not enough that an iPhone 7 case won’t fix it. You have a choice of three colors: Silver, Gold, and Space Grey. The gold has a peachy ting whereas grey is more like black. The most significant visible change in the design of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus is the change in the housing of the mobile phone. Now the new iPhone 8 has got a glass back mad the shining metallic sides which have been taken positively by the iPhone users. Most of the surveys conducted by independent researchers reveal that it is no doubt one of the best mobile phones on the market for smooth one-handed operation.

Screen & Sound

Samsung has been leading the display market, and because of that, they have been able to introduce much sharper and crisper OLED screens quite a few years ago. iPhone 8 also has old LCD screens. There is no doubt about the fact that iPhone 8 does not let a customer down when it comes to display, but at the same time, it can’t be said to be the latest technology. But the good news for iPhone users is that Apple has released the importance of adopting new technologies and has introduced OLED in its new iPhone x.


One of the most significant improvements in the performance of the iPhone is said to be the battery life. The mobile phone has been equipped with a better battery as compared to the battery provided in iPhone 7. According to several tests conducted by independent research, iPhone 8  gives an extra 30mins talk time, which is significantly higher than its predecessor. As far as the performance of the processor, memory, and graphics capability is concerned, Apple claims its Bionic A11 processor is one of the most advanced and most powerful chips ever used in any smartphone which according to all tests performed by independent researches prove to be correct. Another new feature was water and shock-resistant. Now both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 have been tested and proved to be shockproof. Both mobiles passed a 2.5-foot drop test and a water test.


Apple introduced a 12-megapixel camera in 2017 when it launched iPhone 6 series, but the new iPhone 8 has better functionality and aperture speed which means iPhone 8's camera can let in more light, making for better shots in low light and sharper images overall.
