    My Iphone 6 took a bath and I felt the best place to buy a new phone would be Best Buy. I felt very comfortable shopping here because I knew I would get all the help I needed. Love Best Buy! Love my new Iphone 8...

    Camera, Features

    As the iPhones have evolved, so have the cameras. The optical zoom feature, up to 10x, is great. I took a sunset photo of the Pacific with a resulting photo that rivals my digital camera (which is why I rarely use that camera).

    Upgrading from an old iPhone 5s, only thing I really had to adjust to was the new home button and the sleep/wake button being on the side rather than on the top. At first, because of sleep button being on the side and the way I hold the phone, I found that I would also depress one of the volume buttons at the same time as e sleep button, so it wouldn't work - quickly realized what I was doing and that there was nothing wrong with the phone, and am more careful now. Significantly faster, clearer and much better sound than the old phone. Shoulda got it sooner! Also got it cheaper at Best Buy than from Apple.

    The staff helped me transition from an Android system to Apple. While the product is an important part, the personal service from everyone is what sends me to Best Buy. They knew the products, were courteous and gave explanations without pushing me towards an item. Once I had decided on the I Phone 8, features were pointed out and how to use them. I find the phone to be what I need and love that I have a “home” button.

    This is a replacement for another iPhone that lost a battle with a stair step. My daughter goes to school in another state so we went to BB on a Saturday, she received it in the mail on Tuesday, activation and set up for her was a snap, and she was up and running in no time. It works as expected with no further issues.

    iPhone 8 vs iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, & iPhone X.

    iPhone 8 vs iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, & iPhone X.

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery life, Ease of use, Features
    Cons mentioned:
    Call quality

    I have recent experience using both the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s Plus. The Plus model was too big since I use a case with a belt clip to carry the phone, and the SE's screen was a bit too small. I am going to compare my review of the iPhone 8 (purchased unlocked at full price and used with Verizon prepaid) mostly to the iPhone 6s Plus, but one has to understand that the SE especially at prepaid price is an excellent, outstanding phone too with almost all of the same features as the Plus!) Pros: The iPhone 8 is an upgrade in a few ways. Apple includes a compare feature on its website so I won't go into all of the details, but I will try to address the ones that are upgrades to the iPhone 6s Plus. True Tone display does make the screen easier to read because the lighting isn't as harsh. This is coming from someone who has vision problems and prefers the "daylight" bulbs because I need good lighting to see. This phone features water resistance, which means one can now uses cases that might provide better protection or do not muffle sound. With that said, I use a Ghostek Nautical 2 case also sold through BestBuy. It provides great protection combined with waterproofing. Since I use hearing aids to stream audio, sound being muffled isn't an issue and people can hear me clearly. The camera specs *seem* to be similar, but I can see a difference! The pictures are clearer, sharper, and more detailed. Also, this smaller model has the optical image stabilization for the video too. To get the best quality video, I shoot in 4K even though the final output will be in 1080p. Larger files won't take up as much room on this model thanks to upgraded compression features. This model includes an improved flash too. The sound quality on the iPhone 8 seems to be louder and clearer. There is a front speaker too. With my previous phones I also used battery cases. The iPhone 8 with the same use seems to get me through the whole day, but I plan to buy an external battery charger that will also allow me to charge wirelessly soon. Neutral: The bluetooth is supposed to be an upgrade. I am not sure if this is a hardware of software issue with iOS 11 through 11.2.1. At the time of this writing, I am having some issues with it. With phone calls, my made for iPhone hearing aids do not work as well. Sometimes only one connects. Other times I notice a periodic static or crackling sound. Areas for Improvement: What I do not like about the IPhone 8 is the glass back because of how it is designed. In my opinion, it is a very poor design choice, and what weighted the most heavily on my decision to knock star off the overall rating. It is almost half of the cost of the phone without insurance to replace this! The iPhone 4s has a glass back too. However, one could remove two screws and slide off the back, which means the back plate and battery were easily replaced. A fast charging wall adapter was not included in this premium priced phone. I use a Belkin (also sold through BestBuy) or iPad one instead of the one included with great results. Without a case, the "gold" looks like rose gold around the edges and several shades lighter on the back. It looks expensive and stylish, but this look disappears with a case. I miss my Rose Gold that could be seen even through a clear back case. Comments: I didn't wait for the iPhone X. I think the technology behind the facial recognition features is impressive. However, without Touch ID too, I am willing to wait to see how this works out and will decide again when I upgrade next time. I would prefer the bigger iPhone screen on a smaller size. The built-in portrait features are a plus, but I can do most of that with software. These three differences were not worth the price difference to me. Overall Conclusion: I am enjoying using my IPhone 8 with improves on previous models, and it was the best overall choice for me.

    I was so sad when my SE’s recently stopped working, and I had to send it to the recycle pile. I didn’t want a phone that was bigger than my palm & found the iPhone 8 had almost everything on my list. The only thing that I don’t like about this phone, although I know I’ll get used to it is, the on button is no longer on the top right corner of the phone, but on it’s right side. It’s also slightly larger, but still fits in my hand & back pocket, which was a must for me. Like I mentioned before, I’ll get used to it in time. Overall, I’m very satisfied with my purchase.

    I bought this as an upgrade from an iPhone 6. There’s no doubt that this is a better phone, in all aspects. It’s fast, wireless charging is a cool feature, and it’s nice to have 64 GB of storage. I do have some regret that I didn’t get the iPhone X, but it really came down to price. The iPhone 8 was on sale, at the time of purchase, and was half the cost of the X. Pros: - 64 GB storage is ample (at least for now). Definitely a breath of fresh air after dealing with 16 GB and constant storage management. - The phone is fast. The A11 chip seems really responsive. Apps open quickly, on-screen animations/transitions are seamless, and it just feels fluid in your hands. - It has a good camera. 12 MP is really all I need for the photos I take. It’s definitely not the best phone camera around, but is a noticeable upgrade from the iPhone 6. - Wireless charging. The reason I had to upgrade is because the charging port on my last phone broke. It’s nice that I don’t have to worry about wearing out this phone’s port. Wireless charging is convenient and seems to power up the phone just as quick as plugging it in. Cons: - This phone feels outdated (because it is). I really don’t care too much about having the latest features and an all-screen front. But, if it wasn’t for the upgraded home button and the revised Space Gray color, I wouldn’t know if I was holding an iPhone 8 or 6. - The lack of a headphone jack is disappointing. Yes, I can get an adapter or Bluetooth and I will probably get used to it, in time. But, it’s kind of a pain, at the moment. Overall, I like this phone. It definitely lacks the modern features and ‘feel’ that other current phones have, but it is a good performer. If you are a fan of Apple phones, need to upgrade, and are looking to save some cash, I would recommend it.

    Is is taking some time to get used to the new phones, But with that said if you are looking at new phones you should go to best buy, They are so much more knowledgeable than the staff at Verizon.

    It’s a few years behind, but still has everything you need. The size is perfect too. The plus is cumbersome for most clothes/pockets. This is perfect.

    This phone is bigger than my old iPhone, and I wish they still made the smaller size that fits in my pocket better. But it works well, and I got an adapter to use my headphone. Wish they still had the headphone jack, though.

    SO I went shopping with a elderly lady who was trading in her flip phone for a new smart phone since her family thought this would be a great way for them to keep in touch. We stopped at Target first since they had a $200 gift card available when you purchased an IPHONE 8. Come to find out, Target hasn't had this phone in stock since November and the sale was void. We decided to stop at Best Buy after this, and We worked with some of the nicest people ever. They recommended the IPHONE since my elderly lady already had an IPAD and this would be the easiest conversion to a smart phone since the apps and menu are the same. I really wish APPLE had EASY MODE but we did get the ICONS and APPS bigger and everyone is happy. Thanks!

    Apple is up to 11 now, but I see no need yet to move away from 8. With all the updates it still has everything I need and the wireless charging and connectivity all work well.

    So let me start by saying I have owned this phone for a year now and it's just as great as the day I first brought it home. I went for the 256GB version because I was tired of running out of space on my old iPhone 6. No memory issues now. There is a ton of space on this phone. Lastly, I will say my family has purchased the iPhone X and they wish they would have went with the 8. I cannot explain the reasons behind their dislike of the X other than missing the button at the bottom. Anyway, they have convinced me to stick with my iPhone 8 for as long as I can and I honestly expect to have it for several more years.
