Reviews for the Apple iPhone 8

90.7% Apple iPhone 8 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
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 years.

The iPhone 8 is an excellent phone, boosted by the addition of wireless charging and Apple's new A11 Bionic CPU. Beyond that, however, it's an incremental update over last year's iPhone 7, and the handset's large bezels and three-year-old design mean it does feel somewhat dated compared to the likes of the Galaxy S8 and Pixel 2.

There are some great things about the iPhone 8 including the addition of wireless charging, 64GB storage as standard and a fast A11 Bionic processor. However, this all comes at a higher price and everything else is largely the same so we can't imagine or recommend iPhone 7 users upgrading. Those on an older device like an iPhone 6 or older will experience a much bigger change.

iPhone 8 Camera Review: Eight to the Power of One
Source: Tech PP English
While many people have complained that there are not enough changes in the iPhone 8’s camera as compared to the iPhone 7’s (which is true as the shooting experience and the specs on both the device remains largely the same), we would say that in terms of performance, the iPhone 8 is significantly better. It cannot be denied that the company has not taken a super long jump from where it was with its previous model in spec terms- many expected dual cameras and portrait mode and maybe even dual front cameras – but even then, we would say that this does qualify as one of the best smartphone cameras out there. Yes, it is single lens but is good enough to give those dual lenses a run for their money. And yes, we will be comparing it with the iPhone 8 Plus. Stay tuned.

The iPhone 8 is just as impressive and just as disappointing as we’ve been expecting it to be. What frustrates me with the device is that even if Apple went with the same, three-year old design, it could have put in a lot more effort into the features and finish of the phone.

Overall, iPhone 8 is small, compact, powerful, and will deliver the ideal phone experience for many - especially those who aren't fussed with all the latest and greatest features and the costs associated with them. Just because it has minimal upgrades doesn't mean it doesn't deliver maximum satisfaction.

Take a faster processor, a slightly updated design, an improved camera, and some new charging tricks and it all adds up to the iPhone 8. But is it enough to persuade iPhone loyalists to stick with Apple? Or what about those Android users who are tempted by Apple's ecosystem and ease of use?

Source: Techno Buffalo English
There are several arguments to make for the iPhone 8, which we’ve laid out in a few different cases. The big one is you get a home button with Touch ID, which has been more or less a part of the iPhone from the beginning. But the future—at least as Apple sees it—exists without a home button and chunky bezels.

Source: Gadget Show English
The iPhone 8 comes in two storage variants 64GB and 256GB, which are priced at Rs 64,000 and Rs 77,000. A price point where it has stiff competition from the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 and HTC U11. But, the main question about the latest iPhones is that whether you should buy the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus or wait for the iPhone X. After using the iPhone 8 we can safely say that this is a solid smartphone. However, if you've an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, chances are the iPhone 8 might not impress you. Those who have the iPhone 6S or less, we feel that the iPhone 8 is an impressive upgrade. It has a lot going for it - a powerful processor, better display, enhanced camera and wireless charging.

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 A11 is amazing, but there just isn't much that stresses it right now other than augmented reality, and if you want the best augmented-reality phone, you should go with the 8 Plus or the X.

Overall, the iPhone 8 is the best iPhone available today. Is it good? Yes, it’s very good. However, it’s not for everyone. If you want the very latest, or already have an iPhone 7, then the iPhone X is really where your focus should be. There’s no denying that the X is at the cutting edge with its edge-to-edge OLED 5.8 inch screen, virtual home button and facial recognition. However, if you’re upgrading from an iPhone 5 or 6, then you’ll be very happy with an 8’s excellent camera, clever photo modes, stunning wide colour display, wireless charging and impressive augmented reality-ready capabilities.

The iPhone 8 is not radical, and there are plenty of options in the Android space that, on paper, offer more for less. Also, the design is perhaps trying for the smartphone equivalent of the Porsche 911, but one man’s ‘timeless’ is another’s ‘dated’ – especially in the smartphone world of edge-to-edge Android devices (and soon, the iPhone X).

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus own the dubious distinction of being the shortest reigning Apple flagship smartphones, being surpassed a mere twenty minutes later by the iPhone X. While they're both great phones, they're overshadowed by the X, and it doesn't help that the 8's biggest new feature, wireless charging, is something we've seen in Android smartphones for years now.

Apple iPhone 8 reviewed: A solid performance upgrade over the iPhone 7
Source: DxOMark English
While we haven’t retested every smartphone using our new protocols, we have retested some of the best, and the Apple iPhone 8 improves over all of them, including the Google Pixel and the HTC U11 — the two best performers until now. Apple has brought some impressive image processing technology to bear on the images that the iPhone 8’s relatively small sensor captures, and it shows in better exposure, improved dynamic range, and lower noise than the iPhone 7. Only its bigger and more expensive dual-camera sibling, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus, tops it on our DxOMark Mobile charts.

After spending a week with the 8, I can’t think of a single compelling reason to upgrade from an iPhone 7. The 7 is still extremely fast, offers virtually the same design in a lighter package with a bigger battery, and will get almost every feature of the 8 with iOS 11. If you really want Qi wireless charging, you can get a slim $15 case that supports it. And if you’re dying for Portrait Lighting, there are tons of photo apps in the App Store that offer similar effects. Of course, if you're upgrading from anything older than an iPhone 7, the improvements in the camera and the overall speed of the phone are going to really impress you.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how the iPhone X hits Apple’s bottom line. If early reviews are any indication, the iPhone 8 simply doesn’t capture interest the way previous devices did. It’s not bad, and if you’ve been happy with previous iPhones, you’ll be happy with this one. But it’s not seen as moving the bar the way the iPhone X does.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus review: Change in small doses
Source: Engadget English
When I first picked up the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, I immediately decided they were actually just the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. I was wrong: They're definitely much more than that. They're just saddled with a less exciting design. If you subscribe to the maxim that it's what's inside that really counts, the 8 and 8 Plus are big improvements. They pack more storage, great cameras, improved software and absolutely first-rate performance into some highly familiar packages. The iPhone X will continue to suck the air out of the room for the foreseeable future, but one thing has become clear after my week of testing: They might not have the X's style, but the 8 and 8 Plus are truly excellent phones that won't let Apple die-hards and new customers down.

Despite the improvements, the iPhone 8 lacks any real punch. None of the features listed above are unique to the iPhone 8, for instance.

Comment

Model: The new iPhone 8 sports the all new A11 Bionic processor, which for the first time is designed from the ground up by Apple instead of using pre-existing ARM SoC designs. It is by far the most powerful mobile SoC to date, even trumping its closest competitor Qualcomm and its Snapdragon designs. The iPhone 8 is also equipped with 2 GB of RAM and storage capacities ranging from 64 GB to 256 GB. Looking at its chassis, there really isn’t anything new to spout about as Apple has re-used an almost refined design from the iPhone 6 days, which is not to say it is bad. What it certainly does not have is the bendgate fiasco from the iPhone 6. Compared to the 6, 6s and even 7, the iPhone 8 is actually the most bend resistant iPhone to date. Safe to say its all familiar chassis is a tried and tested design which remains unapologetically elegant. Users will also be able to choose between 3 colors mainly silver, gold and space grey. In terms of IO, the iPhone 8 still remains adamant on eliminating the earphone jack and having all sound be to be routed via the lightning port. As for the display, this time around the iPphone 8 sports an true tone based retina display with IPS technology, which looks as sharp, bright and vibrant as ever. Bear in mind that the display on the iPhone 8 is only 1.334 x 750 pixels, which may not seem like a good resolution because it is not FHD. However, in retrospect is actually better than most displays out there because of its pixel density.

Next in line would be the cameras on the iphone 8, which are of the 12 MP and 7 MP variant on the rear and front, respectively. Generally, what makes a camera good is not just the megapixel count but the software and features that go along with it. Apple always has it down to the metal. Images always looking nice and crisp without a loss for detail  in good or bad lighting situations. One thing to note here is that HDR is now an always on function which makes pictures a lot more realistic and natural. Users might be happy that 4K videos can be recorded at 60 FPS instead of 30 FPS, which the iPhone 7 was limited to. It can also record 1080p videos at up to 240 FPS up from 120 FPS on the iPhone 7. This really makes it a cut above the rest of the flagships in the market. Despite all the bells and whistles, which make the iPhone 8 tantalizing, it should be noted that one area Apple often lacks in is the battery capacity department, which seems to have shrunk instead of gotten larger at only 1821 mAh. But all isn’t doom and gloom because while Apple refuses to increase battery capacity. At least the advertised times are about on par with last generation’s iPhone 7. However, the iPhone 8 supports fast charging now. This allows users to charge up to 50% in under 30 minutes. Last but not least another new feature in the iPhone which may not seem new to Android users is the support for wireless Qi charging thanks to the new glass back. The only gripe about fast-charging is that users will not be able to take advantage of that feature out of the box as users would still have to shell out more for an already expensive iPhone for a USB C to lightning cable plus a USB C power adapter commonly bundled with iPads or Macbooks. This is not to say it is eye gouging since Apple expects users who are buying an iPhone 8 to already be Mac or iPad user. Nonetheless having it pre-bundled with the phone would have been a much better preposition. Since the new Iphone 8 is only a minor incremental update by Apple standards it would be hard to swallow for users who are already using the 6S or even the 7. However, for users who are still rocking a 5 or even a 4S it might be a worthwhile consideration. Otherwise it really is not worthwhile selling your kidney just to own one.

Apple: Apple Inc. is an American multinational corporation which designs and manufactures consumer electronics and software products. Apple software includes the Mac OS X operating system but nowadays Macbooks are also able to run Windows. Apple has at least sporadically been considered the most valuable company in the world since 2011 and has consistently ranked among the Top 10 companies in the world.

In the laptop sector, Apple's market share was 9.3% in 2014 and 10.3% in 2016. The latter corresponds to the 5th place. In the smartphone segment, Apple achieved 15.3% in the first quarter of 2016, which means a market share loss when compared to the 18.3% in same quarter of the previous year.
Nevertheless, Apple ranked second place behind Samsung in both years.

There are tons of reviews on Apple laptops, smartphones and tablets. The ratings are significantly above-average (as of 2016).


81.78%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
