    4 Stars with AT&T

    I traded in a 6s plus. I loved th bigger screen on the 6s plus, but it becam too much of a hassle carrying it in my front pocket, especially while driving. This smaller size fits much better. Apple makes their phone upgrades in small increments, so it’s hard to see any real difference between this and the 6s. My only complaint is that I had service issues after switching phones. After the first day, I could not call or receive calls for almost a week (only text worked). Eventually things cleared up and now seems to work fine. I was an Altell customer and service has never been as good since bought out by AT&T. I’ve stayed with them only because they are cheaper than Verizon. I only recommend if you have an iPhone older than the 6s.

    Upgraded specs in the same shell

    I upgraded to the iPhone 8 from the 6s and to be honest there’s not much of a difference. After being so used to having a headphone jack, I will say it took a few days to get used to only having one outlet. A word of advice would be to purchase another dongle (lightning to 3.5mm) adapter: one for the purse/backpack/briefcase and one for your car so you’re not risking losing it. It’s very zippy, especially after updating to iOS 12. Battery life is better, along with being able to wirelessly charge the phone (haven’t tried it yet), and it doesn’t take as long to charge the phone. I would definitely recommend the iPhone 8 if you’re itching to upgrade; but if not then the 6s will still do just fine. I hope this helps!

    I am a long time iPhone user and kept my iPhone 6 for several years because I had no issues, but the battery life was an issue and it was time to upgrade so I went with this instead of the X and I am very happy. The battery life is phenomenal. Everything is similar to what I’m used to, but better. It’s less of a pain to transfer all your stuff now, and I love the new durability and color scheme. My only complaint is that the 8 should have the same camera options as the 8 plus

    Another iPhone. I am one of those people who is helping to tamp down Apple's earnings. I never but the latest phone and this is another example. I am annoyed by the fact that they removed the headphone plug since I am not a big fan of their headphones and don't want to shell out for wireless ones. So I am instead stuck using the adapter which I am sure I am going to misplace soon. Oh well.

    Everything works great. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are virtually perfect phones. For $699 (the iPhone 8) or $799 (the Plus), you get a device that makes calls, plays games, takes pictures, shows movies, gets you everywhere, and does everything better than ever before. Apple set the standard for smartphones a decade ago, and with apologies to the Note 8 and Google Pixel, still does so today.

    Small Upgrade

    This was a small upgrade from my iphone 7. I'm sure there are a lot of new features but day to day there isn't much difference from the iphone 7. I upgraded primarily because my iphone 7 was aging at almost 3 years old and I wanted QI wireless charging to go with my new car and I could get rid of a lot of wires.

    My Iphone 6 had a sprung case so I upgraded to iphone 8 256GB... Itunes as usual was confusing and I was unable to use it to transfer to new phone... I did get everything on it... enjoy the new phone as usual the OS updates add more function to the phone so I do consider this a improvement. No 5 stars yet until I can off load all data and files via USB drive.

    Iphone 8 is the last iPhone with Touch ID, all newer ones use Face ID. I still like the Touch ID feature and got the 256gb so I have sufficient storage for photos and songs and apps etc. This has been a good choice so far. Although iPhones are known to have battery issues, let's wait and see how well this one lasts.

    I had the iPhone 6 so this is def a good upgrade. Just a few glitches like the way it auto corrects the letter I to I️. Also has a prompt that continues to come up saying the product I’m trying to order is not available. I’m not ordering anything. Like the camera clarity and some other features but I️ miss the headphone jack.

    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.

    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.

    Upgrading from the iPhone six will not immediately jump out as a huge change. But the added response of the processor made it well worth it. I would not pay full price, but with the buy one get the second free deal, it was a steal at 400.

    Although I had a hard time with the price of the phone, (IMO phones are outrageously priced), I had run out of space on my previous iPhone and this model/GB storage better suits my needs. I also prefer the size of this model as opposed to the larger ones

    typical I phone priced high, short battery life. all manufactures are set up the same they want you to buy a new one at least every two years and get you depend on all the related apps, computer, cloud etc so you don't leave. because its a paint to switch and keep data.

    The phone works pretty well. I went back to the Apple line when I was missing calls when I went to an Android. The Bluetooth messages does not always sync with my car. I never had this issue with the iPhone 6. It is sporadic with the iPhone 8

    New phone needed after having several iPhones over the years. The display, while not an iPhone X, is great. The price was the deciding factor - AT&T special combined with Best Buy discount meant I got it for less than half price.

    I finally had to upgrade from my 5s because it crashed. I could no longer see texts, the internet, or Facebook. Wish this one was smaller like the 5s. Still learning the new features so do not have a detailed review at this time.

    I have no complaints about the function of the phone but I have not really noticed any difference between the 8 and the 6S I had previously. If they had the 7 with more memory in stock I would have gotten that one just to save money

    Upgraded from flip phone to iPhone 8. Having hard time learning how to use it. No instructions. Starting by experimenting. Would have liked someone to give us instructions. Phone is ok but rather hard/confusing to use.
