Traded mine with my mom for the Pixel 2 XL. iOS is terrible experience for me. The ecosystem, which is the only thing I believe Apple has over Android, is way too expensive to buy into. It would cost me well over $5000 to convert to a similarly specced Apple setup.
I just brought the iPhone 8 Red (upgraded from a near 3yr old iPhone 6) and its everything Iv wanted. Feels nice, super fast, not to big not to small, touch ID is amazing, camera is awesome, what more could you want?
got iphone 8 never felt so worried about it getting a drop out of my pocket, sometimes i was almost dropping it and my heart kind of got an attack xD that phone is amazing, you love it in your hand and you threat it like your kid :))
I definitely agree on having Hi res screen. Ppl maybe having eye issue, if they can't see difference between different screen resolution. There is reason why budget phone go with inferior screen(cost saving)
I got iphone X and loved its build quality and weight. It feels premium in the hand. The display is good battery life lasts me a day after updating to ios 11.2.6
I owned several phones and iphone X gave me the best premium feel in my hand
Switched from Android to iPhone 8. Really happy with it. Reason I switched was because it was slightly cheaper for me than to go fro my Nexus 6P to a Pixel 2XL (even Pixel 2) and wanted to try out iOS.
Question i currently have the galexy s7 edge and im not a fan of Android now that we are in March 2018 should i still buy the iphone 8 plus or wait until September i dont really like how the iphone x as its only face id and is the screen crap on the iphone 8 plus compared to my s7 edge
How is the battery life of the iPhone 8? (not plus). I bought the iPhone 8 plus and the battery was fantastic but I have carpal tunnel and this weight and size of using it was killing me. I went back to my year and a half old iPhone 7 which the battery life is horrendous. Was wondering if the iPhone 8 would be better in the battery department before I upgraded. Any info and input would be appreciated.
what people don't understand about the 8 is that they designed it to be the most powerful phone on the market without all the extra flashy gimmicks. its still an iphone, but under the hood its a lambo. best processing chip, fastest phone to date, best looking screen out there, but its still an iphone. Its for people who want the latest performance, but don't want to sacrifice the classic look and feel of an iphone.
edit: also, the battery life isn't an exaggeration. I turn on my phone at 6am every day and by noon, I still have 90% battery life. and that's auto brightness, instagram browsing, youtube watching, amazon shopping, phone calls, texting, and other tasks. The iphone 8+ absolutely SIPS power. I could go a full 2 days without charging it. I never EVER have to worry about a charge. ever. its such a relief.
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
