    Not a huge improvement over the iPhone 7.

    I thought this would have new features compared to the iphone 7. I was disappointed it did not and decided instead to go to the iphone X, once I saw a demo of it. Anyone looking to upgrade might as well save money and buy an iphone 7 (or even an iphone 6) or skip the iphone 8 and go directly to the iphone X.

    iPhone... usual expectations

    I bought this to replace my wife’s 6s. She loves it. It’s a simple phone to use in it straight to the point. I would have bought her the iPhone X but I felt the eight would be easier for her. Plus I know that iPhone will last her for a few years. Then again I would not expect anything less from an iPhone.

    What a Treat

    What I like about my new phone is all the goodies I keep discovering. One is the health section. The phone tracks the steps I take, flights of stairs climbed and miles walked. This feature helps motivate me to walk just a little more each day. The size of the phone is just right. Everything is working just as it should.

    I enjoy the intuitive interface of iPhones. Only upgraded because iOS 11 wrecked my iPhone 6. Will go to 12 on the 8 but no further. Apple makes great stuff but the iOS updates should be tested more on older iPhones and the iOS should not be distributed to older models with bugs.

    Not significantly better than my 6S

    Works fine, love that it charges wirelessly. Got it in red, and the color is beautiful. Other than that, the only real difference I can see so far from my 6S is the camera quality. Otherwise not an amazing leap. Could have been just as happy keeping my 6S if I hadn't dropped it so many times :)

    My first iPhone was a 3, then I waited a while for a 5; now an 8. I love this phone - it's light, sleek, fits well in my pocket, pretty - most importantly, it has all the best functions without costing SO much too much money. It's fast, has a fantastic camera, simple to trade into.

    I really appreciate the size of this phone versus the 8+ while still getting all that I need. Got the high memory, as my previous 64Gb phone was starting to max out. Had to learn with the new glass back being so smooth that it slid off my charging pad, but one in my protective case that was overcome.

    Phone Problems

    There are several bugs in this new release of the iPhone 8 such as static when dialing the phone, low volume levels as well as difficulties entering pass codes to numbers dialed. Some applications transferred from the iPhone 5 are difficult to open. The phone has a faster processor which is a big plus.

    I'm really enjoying the new iPhone 8. The first couple of noticeable features over my past iPhone 6s is the feel of the keypad and the auto awake feature. Another improvement is the zoom action of the camera. My curiosity keeps me re-reading the tutorial to discover more improvements.

    Nice Upgrade

    Bought the iPhone 8 to replace my over 4 years old 5s. I took advantage of a Best Buy promotion and bought the 256GB model. This phone is much faster than the 5s. Didn't need all the bells and whistles of the iPhone X and the savings are substantial when compared to the X model with comparable storage.

    Upgrade from 5S to 8 (Finally)

    I've been hesistent on upgrading from my 5S due to the size of the 8. However, after 4 years of owning the 5S - the 8 is great upgrade. The memory from a limited 16GB to a 256 GB and the process speed is a huge improvement. I don't know about the 6, 6S or 7 but I'm fairly happy with the 8. Here's to another 4 years!

    I purchased about a month ago and have been using this every day since for business and personal use. The speed is dramatically better than prior iPhones and I like the solid feel of the new case material. The display, camera and photo quality is noticeably better. Overall a worthwhile upgrade.

    The phone works well. I tried an Android phone, but it missed texts between groups where they were using Apple phones. This is a known Apple issue, with forces people to stick with apple. Not impressed by Apples failure to fix this, The phone is overpriced for the value.

    I recently upgraded to the iPhone 8 and love it. A lot of people didn't like the iPhone X and after checking it out, neither did I. I still like the option of having a home button so I went with the 8. It seems to have better battery life than the iPhone 6 as well.

    went with the iphone 8 because the X is overpriced, but does give you a better camera, Best Buy made the transaction seemless, easy transfer of old phone number and honored the BOGO program from AT&T, definitely need the 256GB model, the smaller memory fills up too quick if you take alot of pictures.

    Had this iPhone for 3 weeks now and have enjoyed everything about it. Actually weighed this vs the iPhone X and could not justify getting X over 8 when considering the bump in cost. And I heard plenty of friends, co-workers say the same thing, and now I see why. The 8 has everything I need.

    When I got this it felt to me that this was the sweet spot between the new features and price. I'm hoping to get many years out of this device and so far so good, I'm optimistic about it. Previously I've only used Android devices. I'm happy with the iPhone 8.

    I upgraded from a 6S to 8 and am very happy with the migration. The battery in my 6S was failing and I could not wait for the X. The reviews of the 8 were positive so I decided to go ahead and buy the 8 and consider the XI after all the kinks had been worked out of the new technologies in the X.
