    Another freaking apple phone - why won't I learn?

    So my daughter's iphone 5c was aging, being nearly 4 years old, and my iPhone 6 stopped working correctly, and I'm watching the lawsuit against Apple with glee. I wanted to go Samsung, but she loves apple, so I took one for the team, fully charged my "6" so it would work when evaluated for trade in, and got this phone as the 'buy one' part of the special AT&T was running under their Next program. Of course, my '6' was a 64Gb, and was nearly full after 3 1/2 years, so I sort of talked myself into getting the 256Gb beast. Apple could simplify all of our lives (theirs and ours) by just providing a slot for a standard memory expansion card (micro SD?) like other makers do for Android phones. Would make transferring or printing photos ever so much less sucky. BB staff was decent to work with, although some of the conversations between team members about disciplinary discussions were kind of unprofessional. Keep that stuff in the break room please.

    Apple has made changes that are counter intuitive and not very smart. I don't like that. Even though it was backed up from my old iphone, the backup froze and geek squad had no idea why. All of my photos and all of my music has disappeared and on line directions to fix it on itunes seem to be useless for the new phone that I bought.

    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 :)

    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.

    Great phone But itunes will not load my music on this phone. Why pay for 256GB phone that won't load my leagally purchased music. They are so worried about pirating that they are frustrating real customers. I Will Never Buy another song from Itunes.

    An Apple phone. Apple is so proud of their phone that they feel justified over charging for an product that as a consumer we feel we can’t function without. Smart business sense- they have us right where they want us.

    There’s absolutely no difference between the 8 and the iPhone 6 I upgrade from. None. Not really an upgrade I guess. Better to just stick with a 6 or pay for it being as it is much cheaper.

    iPhone 8 = hard to figure out everything on it & how to use it. Minimal instructions when bought it. Need lots of help. Where does one find instructions to use iphone 8?

    I had to get a new phone to replace my iPhone 6. I’m not sure why the hype and high price. It’s not much different from my old 6. That’s why only three stars.

    My last 6s was perfectly fine until all of a sudden my battery started acting weird. So I got the new phone instead of a battery.

    Decent upgrade, my wife came from the 6. She likes the phone and notices a significant improvement speed-wise. Quite happy.

    The iPhone-8 is an average phone (for now). I hope the IOS and battery will last a bit longer (this time).

    It works well, but nothing groundbreaking about it.
