Apple iPhone 8 review


Apple's latest smartphone is here and we've spent just over a week with it. The question is, will we be putting our money down for it?

Camera image and video quality is unreal ; Sound output is louder, crisper with deeper bass ; Truetone screen sorts you out in daylight and indoors ; Blazing performance ; Wireless charging

Design looks extremely dated

The new iPhone 8 still makes a supremely great smartphone with top-notch performance, optics and sound. Flawless build quality, wireless charging and iOS 11 are the icing on the cake!

Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus hands-on review


Apple's less expensive new blowers refuse to be overshadowed by the iPhone X


Expert review by : John McCann (

iPhone 8 review


Business as usual, in a slightly nicer suit

Wireless charging is useful ; Glass rear is pleasing in the hand ; Camera is great at point-and-shoot

Limited upgrade over iPhone 7 ; Bezel-heavy design looks dated ; Battery only just lasts a day

Don’t let the iPhone 8 name fool you – this is very much the iPhone 7S, an incremental upgrade on 2016’s 4.7-inch iPhone 7 with a few additions here and there, but nothing to really wow.

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 review, price, release date: Is the new iPhone 8 worth it? Is the updated camera, faster processor and True Tone display worth the £699 price?

Great camera ; Blazingly fast ; Colourful display ; Wireless charging is a nice extra

Dated design ; Battery life could be better ; That huge bezel

When Trusted Reviews reviewed the iPhone 7 last year, Evan Kypreos found the poor battery life the single biggest reason to avoid the device. He claimed it had ‘the shortest battery life he’d experienced on any mainstream phone over the past couple of...

iPhone 8 review


Apple's seductive sports car of a phone is the 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 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 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...

Apple has added wireless charging and its A11 Bionic processor to the new iPhone but is it enough? Find out in our iPhone 8 review.


Expert review by : Sascha Segan (

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


X marks the spot for Apple's future, but the iPhone 8 is a safer – and surprisingly impressive – option

Blazingly fast ; Camera borders on excellent ; Great build that feels solid ; Speakers are surprisingly good

Pricey ; Design is effectively four years old ; Camera bump still irks ; No headphone port

You think you know what you’re getting, but the iPhone 8 offers quite a bit more. There’s no getting round its highish price and dated design though
