Apple iPhone 8 Review: A great “Plan B”

iPhone 8 skins:

Watch our Apple iPhone 8 review. The iPhone 8 doesn’t seem to be getting the reception that new iPhones usually get. It didn’t fully sell out like iPhones do every year, and the legendary lines at stores were, well.. not there. The general consensus is that most people are waiting for the iPhone X. So the question of the year: Who is this phone for? Watch our iPhone 8 review to learn more.

Iteration on the side of caution has been the Apple way for decades. You can see it in the Mac where you only see design changes every four years or so. You saw it with iPhones every two years as well, but.. Did you notice that move where Cupertino launched the iPhone SE? It turns out that one of Apple’s best selling phones is a design that’s a crazy 6 years old. There seems to be some logic in Apple retaining the design of the iPhone 6 for a fourth generation. For us gadget fans, that’s stupid, but it seems that most iPhone users just don’t want such a dramatic change.

    I think is for people using the 5 or less, but that can't pay for the X. This is me, I'm in love with my 8 after years of my 5S.

    It’s funny to see all youtube reviewers adjust their opinion within 2 / 3 months if it comes to the iphone 8.

    It makes them like clowns.

    Had a 7plus thought I wanted an S8 returned it after a week and have a regular 8. The smaller one doesn’t bother me one bit. It’s great. Works well with my little hands too. Lol.

    Its plan A for me. Its minimalistic and cleaner looking than plus. I prefer phones that are comfortable to use with one hand. I also really liked 5-5s-se design

  15. Momma Bear says:

    The first generation argument doesn't apply. At first I agreed and thought hmm I shouldn't have humored all over the iPhone x because of the first gen issues then I realized hey apple has made so many models before I can't even really think of exactly how many models and variations there has been. For these reason the first gen argument doesn't apply. Sure there may be a quirk here or a glitch there but they aren't going to be hardware issues like before eight he very first iphone. The only thing I worry about is oled. We don't really know how long they last and burn in is a consideration.

    Its better than Iphone X if you still want to be on the iOS plattform…
