I hesitated for a long time to buy a newer iPhone, because I wanted something smaller (that’s why I was satisfied with my SE for a long time). It was hard for me to change to a bigger model, but in the end it had to be – and I am very happy with this one. It is indeed a bit bigger – but also a bit flatter than the SE. So it makes up for something. What I especially like is the glass back. I already liked the inlays in the SE and here it is even better (if you don’t cover it with a cover. I am not a heavy user and therefore I do not need any additional protection. So it stays as compact and noble as possible. The bigger screen allows more details, the home button with touch ID is also on board (I just find it more practical). If you choose Apple, you usually know about the advantages and disadvantages. For me the former, regular updates, easy setup and easy adjustment of the privacy settings (iCloud off) outweigh the latter. All the apps I need work without problems and I am not bothered with constant reminders of apps I haven’t even used. Phone, camera, and small built-in helpers make it an ideal, unobtrusive companion.

..you might think – but it is not true. I was very disappointed after changing from the 6s to the 8s, because there were only minimal new features. Except for the size I didn’t notice any difference in the camera, except that it captures more brilliant colors. For this price absolutely nothing worth, I wonder how Apple hasn’t chased away ALL buyers yet. The phone was released in 2018, Apple boasts an 18MP camera and wireless charging. My Sony Xperia from 2013 already had both. Even the camera was better. The small screen is now getting on my nerves after 2 months of use. The only good thing is the speaker performance and the True Tone Display, which always adapts to the ambient light. I will definitely swap it for a Mate 20 Pro or S9! If Apple doesn’t come up with a revolution of the iPhone soon (and no, an XS isn’t a revolution either) or doesn’t finally adapt to the standards of other manufacturers (e.g. more than a cheap 18MP camera) this was my last iPhone.

The iPhone 8 convinced me completely and stands out of course as known from Apple with its great and high-quality design. The battery lasts very long, usually I only have to charge it every 1-1.5 days. The workmanship is very good, as is the picture and sound quality. Especially the sound of this iPhone is ingenious. Unfortunately, the iPhone no longer has a separate headphone jack (I found it very advantageous with the 6S), but it’s not the worst. I can only recommend the iPhone 8, it is a brilliant smartphone with top performance and speed.

The positive: I think that the iPhone 8 is handy and very well manufactured, fast and reliable. The shipment by Amazon was within two days and it was a new, original packed device, which was not registered before. The disappointment: I was convinced that Apple always uses high-quality cameras. With this in mind, I decided to buy this camera and hoped to be able to take better pictures with my mobile phone in the future. Unfortunately the camera of the iPhone 8 turned out to be worse than the Oneplus 3T, so I sent the phone back.

I’m just thrilled with the iPhone. I was sceptical at first because I was an Android user for years. But now that I have the iPhone I don’t want to have another one. The color of the glass back in gold is very nice and in general the device is well made. The system is also easy to use once you have found your way around. Although I had real difficulties in the beginning to find a password for my AppleID. But Apple is not responsible for that. I can definitely recommend it and I can’t complain about the price-performance ratio.

I like the IPhone 8 Plus very much, it has a nice design and despite its size it fits well in the hand. The processor is quite fast, the apps are loaded quickly. The photos have a very good resolution and are well displayed on the screen. Especially the microphone and the loudspeaker have improved. Very good stereo effects on the loudspeaker. Unfortunately, the device is quite heavy. I am satisfied with the battery life so far. However, I don’t use it all the time either. The built-in front and main cameras are also very good

It hasn’t changed much from the design on the front side compared to my previous iPhone 6, but the back looks even more noble and beautiful. Very powerful and a really good camera. I won’t go further into detail now. Those who own an iPhone know the advantages and disadvantages. For those who want to buy an iPhone for the first time… It’s always worth buying. (Of course you always think about it 3 times more if you are willing to spend that much money. I was the same) Conclusion – I am and always will be for an iPhone.

The IPhone is still nice and handy in a time of over 6 inch displays. It is really comfortable in the hand, has a great resolution and runs very smoothly. The wireless charging is nice to have on board. The memory can’t be expanded in the typical Apple way, but 64 gigabytes are quite sufficient for normal use. The battery life is also good if you’re not a power user, and you can get through a day relaxed. Thanks to the processor, the next 5 years will certainly be safe for IOS updates. I can only recommend this phone!

So far a great device which is to be regarded nobly. From the size and quality almost like the iPhone7. The only flaw is that Touch doesn’t react like this (despite the settings) and Siri activates without touching the phone once. It overheats quite quickly and sometimes doesn’t operate properly and falters a lot. For me the iPhone 8 came into question because my predecessor (iPhone7) broke down. So I can use my accessories from 7 also ideally for the 8. But I would recommend the phone anyway 🙂

I bought the iPhone 8 as the successor to my iPhone 6s. Now I have more memory capacity, the iPhone itself looks great with the glass, but the processor seems to be overstrained in the meantime, because Facebook for example hangs up and I have to unlock the iPhone again. That annoys me a little. It’s also a pity that you can’t just charge and use the headphones at the same time. Apart from that the camera is much better, which I like a lot and also the sound is better than on the iPhone 6s.

From the iPhone 5s to the iPhone 8 has been a great leap forward, but it has paid off completely! The phone is super fast, technically absolutely top and the camera is really great! Setting up the phone as usual from Apple is very easy and fast, even transferring the data was very easy. Highly recommended! I would also like to positively mention the fast delivery – ordered on Mondays and already there on Wednesdays, just in time for Santa Claus as my own little Santa Claus present 🙂

The IPhone 8 is super what bothers me is the size would have been nice if there was one in the shape of the 4s but apparently that is not in demand on the market. The size is the smallest and when I compare it with the xr which is the size of the 4s I wonder how someone who uses it for what it is intended for – for telephoning – can handle the size with the feeling of having to have half a tablet on the ear. Having your own pocket for the phone misses the mobility and always number.

… radical innovations you look for in vain. However, the iPhone 8 convinces with a good performance, a good workmanship and a better battery life compared to the iPhone 6 / 6s models. The photo quality is good and slightly better than the previous models. The appearance of the new Apple mobile phone essentially corresponds to the previous models from version 6 on, only a glass back has been added as a change. In the sum of all things – it is a good and reliable smartphone …

The iPhone 8 offers every Apple fan and also every smartphone fan the best of the best. The material and the really perfect workmanship give the IPhone the noble design. The gold is different from the previous models, it is a little paler and looks really great behind the glass. With 32 gb memory for normal use absolutely sufficient. The camera is super and also better than its predecessors, in my opinion it leaves some space to the top. But absolutely recommendable.

As a first time, the shipping was very fast. The phone was there after about two weeks, although it said up to 7 weeks. But let’s get to the mobile phone… it’s amazing. It really is. Had the 6s before and was also absolutely satisfied, the 8s simply beats everything. It makes super rad beautiful pictures (for the girls among us, definitely super :p ) the battery lasts a thousand times longer than the 6s. So all in all I am as always very satisfied with the iPhone.

Of course the Iphone is too expensive for the technical specs. But it is handy, light and easy to use. Even the backward display is easy to read, so that even I with glasses 1.5 diopters can see everything without glasses. The display is very bright and also in the sun well recognizable. With average use in the evening still 30% battery, but works also longer. No Lags recognizable. Good Wlan connection in terms of range and quality. Bluetooth ditto.

I’ve had the iPhone 8 for a long time and bought it for my wife’s birthday. We are both very satisfied. The size is perfect for big and small hands. Compared to Android smartphones the iPhone runs very stable. Even if the memory is full or you have countless apps running in the background, there is no loss of performance… but you’re used to that from Apple. The only criticism is the iTunes application, but there are enough alternatives.
