iPhone 8 review: Is this older iPhone worth it in 2019?


iPhone 8 review: It looks like every one of its precursors, save for its glass back, wireless charging and a beefier processor, but is that still enough?

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

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

iPhone 8 review: it's the iPhone you know and love


It got overshadowed by the X, but a slight redesign, improved battery life, and a great camera make this a great iPhone

Great camera ; Decent battery life ; Ergonomic design

Large bezels look dated ; Fast charging costs extra ; Difficult to get excited about

Apple iPhone 8 hands on


Apple's recent launch was dominated by the iPhone X, but an iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were also on the menu. We took the smaller handset of the two for a quick spin...

Apple iPhone 8 review: Still a powerful choice


Does the iPhone 8 have what it takes to be your next smartphone - or should you opt for one of the X models?

Small size has added appeal in among typically larger phones ; Wireless charging thanks to new glass back design ; Dust- and water-resistant ; Powerful innards

Lacks iPhone 8 Plus' camera skills ; Need separate cable for Quick Charge ; Glass makes it prone to drop damage ; The familiar design looks dated

The iPhone 8 is small, compact, powerful, and will deliver a perfect phone experience for many, especially those that aren’t fussed with all the latest and greatest features, new design and the costs associated with them.

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

iPhone 8 review


Apple's iPhone 8 wasn't even the top-of-the-line iOS phone when it came out, but it's still a robust choice for functionality and speed, with a traditional home button packing an easy-to-use Touch ID fingerprint sensor to boot. In short, it's as...

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 the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 with a few additions here and there, but nothing to really wow you next to other smartphones in 2018.

iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Can Apple’s latest slay Samsung’s?


The iPhone 8 is official, but should you pick up Apple's latest, or choose the Samsung Galaxy S8? Here's who wins.

Chances are the iPhone 8 and the Galaxy S8 will be quite similar in terms of power, potential and finish. In all honesty, the decision you’re making here isn’t “do I want a Samsung Galaxy S8 or an iPhone 8?” it’s, do I want to use iOS or Android? And...

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7: Should you upgrade to the new Apple's iPhone 8?


Should you upgrade to Apple's iPhone 8 or stick with the iPhone 7? Here's the definitive answer.

The iPhone 8 is a tough sell, at least to me. It brings wireless charging, a faster processor, and a True Tone display. But given the £150 price difference, it's up to you to decide whether these features are a must-buy. If you're in the market for a...

iPhone 8 review: Now Apple's cheapest phone at £479


The Apple iPhone 8 is in many ways a step forward from the iPhone 7 – but the price can be hard to justify

Wireless charging ; An even faster processor ; Gorgeous design

Expensive ; Disappointing battery life ; No 3.5mm headphone jack

The problem is the price. The iPhone 7 is already such a great handset that it’s hard to justify paying £150 more for its successor. And of course, if you’re not bound to iOS, you can save even more by opting for an Android alternative – which makes...
