I went from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone X and I've never looked back. It was totally just because I prefer IOS and I was looking forward to Face ID and wireless charging. (I know that wireless charging is available on the 8 and 8+) No disappointments so far. I love the experience.
What's more future proof iPhone 8+ or Google Pixel 2 XL? I need to decide on the two phones. I love the Android ecosystem, but Apple's processor has my head turned, I just want a phone for 3 years that will not be super slow by the 3rd year and will generally be able to keep up with the newer phones. I've owned a Nexus 6 or the last 3 years and it's just gassed now, slow at multitasking, battery is easy to drain, just not snappy. Don't want a repeat, so opinions pls
Around a year ago I absolutely resented iOS devices, being the ultimate Android fanboy. My hatred for iOS devices was so prominent that it even contributed to the breakdown of my relationship at the time. However, as my current Android phone ages, it did not receive a single update, while all of my friend’s iPhones, including older models such as the 5 and 5C received continued software updates. This, along with the updated (and fucking beautiful) hardware, reliable software and general ecosystem of the iPhone led me to ditch android and make the switch to the iPhone 8, and has definitely been one of the best tech decisions so far.
My number one takeaway from the iPhone 8 is fantastic battery life, better than any previous iteration of an iPhone. It and that feeling of the glass back are just phenomenal and my favourite parts about the phone.
Jon, help me out here. I like the color of the Space Grey better, but once you said it was a fingerprint magnet i got worried. I am absolutely NOT putting a case on the phone, i like the way it feels without one. I don't mind the Silver color this year as much as in past years because it's white on the back instead of silver. Should I go with my number 1 choice of Space Grey and just wipe the fingerprints off, or should I just go with Silver since they don't really show?
A E Better go with an Iphone 8, as it has the all new A11 bionic chip than the A10 fusion in the 7 plus . We even know apple has been slowing down their older phones. Also you get 64 gigs of base storage whereas you get 32 as base in 7 plus.
i went from a iphone 6 to an 8+. even though the design is the same. the performance and battery life are night and day.... i did want to grab a X but the price and notch were 2 things i could not get pass, plus Face ID was untested.
Why would anyone consider moving to Android instead of waiting for the next generation, unless you really need a change of design and you don't like X version?
I have 7 plus and I wouldn't change it for nothing yet, especially because it is stunning how fast it is. Waiting to see what will come in 2018. Not to mention that benefits of whole eco-system is the best possible user experience by a wide margin.
I got the iPhone 8. Went to the Apple store and tried all three phones: 8, 8+, and the X. 8+ felt too big for me, with the X, it felt weird not having the home button plus I didn’t want to learn new gestures. So got the 8 instead. No complaints.
Dude you said Apple is always behind on raw horsepower ?? Was that a mistake ?? Apple phones benchmarks completely blow any Snapdragon benchmark completely out of the water they’re not even in the same league. This is with less cores and less ram.
I got an iPhone 8. The phone is very quick, 64gb of storage is good enough for me, I don't take too many photos. The IP67 is great, I can use it outside in Portland with no worry, and the wireless charging is a plus for when I want to charge and listen to music.
iPhone 8/8 plus are maxed out models of old tech. There is no future to it nor the Touch ID button. It’s history. Time to move on or switch to Android. After 2 months of deciding I went with the iPhone X, and while some apps are not optimized, I couldn’t stand the iris scanner nor backplate fingerprint. The iPhone X is silky smooth and has no hiccups. The only phone to surpass this phone will be a larger display coming out in late 2018. The “notch” annoyed me while deciding on the next phone to purchase, but I don’t even notice it any longer.
Tech reviewers on here friggin love the iPhone X, but the public don’t. Maybe because we can’t afford it lol. Tech reviewer need to take more responsibility advising viewers. Unbox Therapy’s approach was dead right!! He kept it real
The design is 💩 compared to any other flagship out there including the iPhone X. The iPhone X is better in every way. I wish they would’ve went with a bigger battery because of the oled display. That’s the only department where the 8+ wins
I have the 6 plus but it’s starting to get pretty slow. I’d be able to tolerate it but it just recently started getting touch disease and it’s nearly impossible to use. I can’t justify 200 bucks into a 3 year old phone, so it looks like I’ll be buying an 8 soon.
TEAM 8 PLUS. I went to the store and look and held both and I chose the 8 plus. The X looks nice and it’s different but I’m a fan of the plus phones plus my 8 plus is awesome and my battery does feel like it lasts two days. I don’t even charge it till I’m about to go to bed
I owned an iPhone 6 for three years, didn’t feel like switching to android and got tired of small sized phones, so I got me the black iPhone 8 Plus. And man.. this is the perfect mobile device for me!
The battery life is ridiculous, two days on a charge is standard. It’s very fast, even tho I’d love if I could just turn off the animations so I could get the most out of its potential. Screen is really good (don’t listen to geeks and spec freaks). Speakers are the best out there. I love the so called “dated” design with “huge bezels” (😅). I would never change it. Camera is ok but nothing special in my opinion, still sucks in lower lightning, I think there are way better cameras out there. And it’s definitely not too big, except you have tiny fists.
I didn’t buy the iPhone 10 because of the price, Face ID and guestures. Its base version now costs at least €1100 here which is insane. For example I bought my 64gb iP8+ for €770, new vacuum pack.
Face ID? 😄 no thanks, Touch ID is very practical. Hopefully there’s gonna be an iPhone with on screen Touch ID.
And the guestures? No need to explain. Tried it out, didn’t like it, didn’t buy it.
I can only recommend an iPhone 8 Plus if someone’s a long time iPhone user. It’s a very, very good phone! 😉
Pre ordered my 8 Plus and got it on release day over the iPhone X. Prefer the larger phone size, screen aspect ratio, and did not want to wait or shell out an extra $300 CAD for a better screen and Face ID with the iPhone X.
I'm skipping all and I'm still on my iPhone 6! Apple messed up big time with these iPhones, they're all pretty much the same internally with the same processors and the cameras on the X and 8 plus are nearly identical! Waiting to see if apple can create a much better form factor this year. Hopefully a phone with actual battery improvement and more differentiation between the cheaper models and the higher end models.
+TechnoBuffalo: @1:17 The phone isn't fast because of iOS 11, rather it's the chipset...iOS 11 was anyway a fail, lol. Guys but I've to say your content has become way better no doubt, stay on this track and you'll see yourself grow more this year.
As an Apple fan boy I'm so disappointed in Apple. Due to the 4yr old design the 8+ will be gone for good by Sept and as good as a design as it is I do not want to buy a phone on a 2yr contract which will be discontinued and replaced by and 8+ sized X this year. The X is just to small, can't understand why they did not launch an 8+ sized X!! Instead they launch the 8"s and X which just shows how they had to compromise on the iPhone line up this year because they just couldn't get their shit done and they are so far behind the other brands now its embarrassing for them. Jobs would not have allowed this to happen to Apple. After 10 years of iPhone they forced me to leave iPhone and buy a note 8! I miss iPhone but my money is scarce so I have to be sure with my purchases. I was sure this time that being stuck with a 4th gen phone for 2 yes was not for me. #applenolonger
The iPhone 8 and 8 plus reminds me of the iMac 21.5 inch and 27 inch.
The 8 has a small screen and noticeable bezels. (Like iMac 21)
But the 8 plus has a nice large screen and you don’t mind the bezels (like the iMac 27)
