    A great phone (Comes with a hefty price tag)

    I am fluent in both languages (Android & IOS) I have to admit. The IOS is very user friendly, but cannot be customized like most Androids. The IPhone 8 is no exception. In order for you to customize your own ring tones, you must hook it up to your PC or MAC. I imagine everyone knows this. The iPhone 8 has the same dimensions as the iPhone 7, except it’s faster. I upgraded from an iPhone 6S. The one thing I must admit I do not like is how the home button feels. The 6S at least had movement. I guess this is the price you pay for water resistance. I heard people complain about the lack of an earphone jack. No big deal. Apple includes an adapter that fits in place of the lightning adapter. What I can see why some people complain is you cannot charge the phone & listen to music at the same time. Until Apple releases such an adapter that can do both, just grin & bear it. Most people use Bluetooth headphones or connect to the vehicle. I don’t see why so much fuss. Anyway, yes, the phone is exceptional. I also own a Galaxy Note 8. The Note 8 is as good as the IPhone 8. Both are super quick. I have used the “Antutu benchmark app” on the IPhone 8 and the Note 8 for comparison. Here are the results: IPhone 8 plus: 128052 Galaxy Note 8: 165930 As you can see, both are phenomenal smart devices. Both are a tiny computer in your pocket. If you worry about customizations, then the IPhone is not for you. However, if you can live with without customizing ring tones, then the IPhone 8 is your weapon of choice. Matter of fact, if you so choose to purchase the IPhone 8, then go with maximum storage. I believe you can purchase the iPhone 8 with 64gb or 256gb, either with 2gb Ram. I’m not sure about 128gb. Interface. The new interface is somewhat different. It seems more “Colorful“, some of the icons appear different & from experience, not all apps you had on the previous interface will work with the new IOS. Matter of fact, Swan Digiview will not work with the new IOS. The developer had to update their software to be compatible with the new version. Let’s talk about security. Nothing like biometrics. I will not use face recognition. Your face expression must always be the same after you setup your device the first time. The Galaxy Note 8 has a familiar security feature. Iris reader. I’ve set it up on my Note 8. What a pain in the you know what!!! You must look at the camera at the same angle every time to unlock the device. Also lighting has a lot in play. If the lighting & the angle is not the same, you’ll need to open your device a different way. Also, allegedly, anyone can unlock the device using a picture of you? I don’t know, I cannot give a definitive answer. What I can attest is the fingerprint reader is as good as the previous one with the IPhone 6S. Flawless. This is all I have for now. I hope it may answer a question or two.

    A small step up

    I had a iPhone 6 128gb for nearly the last 3 years, was very happy with it till last 2 months when battery started over heating and it would charge erratically. Had apple replace the battery in August, fixed battery problems for $80. With 128gb I could no longer keep as much music on the phone as I would have liked (+15K song library could only keep about 9k songs on the phone. So iPhone 8+ with 256gb seemed like the obvious choice. My wife as had S7edge plus for about 2 years. We frequently compare photos take from her S7+ to my iPhone. For last 2 years it was obvious that the S7+ took better photos under almost all circumstances (only exception might be iPhone's panorama view is easier to use and more stable). But for any simple photos S7 was better, so I'd keep my Sony Super zoom handy at all times. Upon getting the iPhone 8+ the first thing I notice was how much heavier it was than iPhone 6; i generally keep my phone in my front right pocket, iPhone 6 was barely noticeable, with the iPhone 8+in my front pocket I know it is there! But I can live with it, the larger screen is easier for my aging eyes to read, I've had some issues with the phone "remembering" the brightness setting, hopefully this will be addresses with a fw/update; new iOS release have often gone through a few quick update to fix minor issues. Any how I enjoy the larger screen area, a fair trade off for it increased weight. Now back to the photos, comparing the iPhone 8+ to the S7+ it's now pretty much a draw, S7+ seems a bit more colorful but with dark pictures the iPhone may be a little bit better. When using both in portrait mode, the IPhone cannot always seem to accurately determine where it wants sharp focus/soft focus to start/end; leading to some unpredictable results. That said, the S7+ has it own portrait issue where the background still remains in sharp focus. The iPhone's image stabilization is a big improvement (too many years in coming) and I'm glad it there, it does help to take better photos. Now why didn't I wait for the iPhoneX, well it had nothing to do with it's cost, rather the incremental improvements (I little more screen, OLED - but the same brightness) versus the big unknown, facial recognition. I'm accustomed the the home button and the fingerprint working pretty much all the time I did not wan to risk a possibly flaky new, yet to be widely tested, interface to potentially effect (slow down) the user interface/experience. Maybe after a million or 2 have tested it and it's been tweaked, I be confident in it. Right now I'll let some one else test it and tell me how it goes. sorry apple, you don't always get it right the first time (maps remember); and that was much easier than facial recognition.

    Best iPhone Yet

    My son was still using a flip phone, and for a variety of reasons, I wanted to get him a smart device for his telephone, texting, and data needs. I had a year-old iPhone 7 Plus, myself, and was itching to upgrade, and so I decided to hand my 7 Plus down to him and purchase either an iPhone X or iPhone 8 Plus for myself. I considered the X, but was turned off by the loss of the fingerprint sensor for awakening/unlocking the phone; I am a long distance runner who often has my iPhone strapped to my left arm. Having to look directly at the phone to unlock it while running seemed like a non-starter in that situation. It also seemed like having to look directly at the phone to unlock it would prove difficult if one often finds oneself trapped in never-ending meetings and if, during such occasions, one would like to sneak a peek every now and then at one's e-mail or fire off a quick text without anyone noticing. And so I opted for the 8 Plus. I have not regretted it. While there are a number of differences between the 7 Plus and the 8 Plus, two great differences stand out for me. First, the 8 Plus has a higher storage capacity than its predecessor. And second, the 8 Plus has "wireless" charging. Both are features that I make great use of now that I have upgraded to the 8 Plus. With respect to the "wireless" charging, I wound up purchasing three wireless charging devices (one for my bedroom, one for my home office, and one for my work office). Once those devices are plugged into an outlet, one simply places ones iPhone in the charging cradle, and the phone begins charging without the necessity of plugging the phone into a lightning cable. The charging occurs even when the iPhone is in a protective case (I have a leather case). I even have found the wireless charging convenient in a few airports since I bought the 8 Plus. I think it was Atlanta's airport that had a wireless charging mat. Or was it Houston's? As for whether the iPhone 8 Plus is more responsive than the 7 Plus or has longer battery life, if so, I didn't notice it. Would I recommend to a friend? Well, certainly if this would be his or her first iPhone, if it would be replacing a non-Plus model, or if it would be replacing a model made before the iPhone 7. But if you already have an iPhone that is working well, if you are not running out of space on it to store your apps and data, and if wireless charging is not something important to you, it would not likely be worth the extra money to get the 8 Plus.

    Great tried and true performer

    I’ve been on iOS forever. Love the new Samsung hardware but I love iOS more. It’s what I’m used to, what I know and it works with pretty much most applications because a ton of other people use iPhones. That said, I felt kind of underwhelmed by the flagship this year. While the X has some neat new features, I don’t want to be the guinea pig for the phone of the future. For the money, it’s just not worth it to me, but this is just my opinion. I figured I’d let Apple take another year or so to work on OLED, interface-finessing and so forth. So I went with a tried and true design. This design has been around for a few years in most regards. However, I tend to like things that are solid performers and dialed in. The last thing I want to do is be frustrated by new tech. That notch is fine to me, but I bet it poses a lot of UI challenges and the need for specialized support for mobile web (especially on fixed sticky-navs). True, the exterior design on the 8 series is a bit long in the tooth, but the screen is plenty big for media content, faster typing, etc. and the speakers sound good for a phone. The processor (same as the one in the flagship) is snappy. And, Touch ID works quite well and I like using it. This is another HUGE reason I stayed with the legacy-design. While Face ID may be great and all (and do t get me wrong, the X’s cameras and AR capabilities with face mapping are really amazing) I just don’t want to always have to gaze awkwardly at my phone to do things. It will get better I’m sure, but Touch ID is fine and I will continue hoping they retain it in the future–even if under the screen, which would be ideal. The glass back is fine. While it looks nice out of the case, mine goes right into a case so it’s whatever. I would prefer aluminum but glass is fine if I ever use wireless charging…which for me is still a few years off b/c I don’t want to spend the scratch for a slower charging process. Again, perhaps that will get better. I don’t really care about the lack of a headphone jack. I use AirPods or Beats Solo3s anyways, so I ditched wires a while back for listening to music. The sound quality is good enough for me. Lastly, battery life is good, there are a ton of first and third party accessories available and I have zero regrets on updating to the larger screen format from my 6S which was a great phone and was still performing well for me. I just wanted a bit better camera and my dad needed a new phone, so there you go. My wife upgraded her older 6+ for an 8+ and she’s enjoying hers as well. Final thought: I use my phone more than most other things and it does a large number of tasks and provides a lot of entertainment for me. I want something snappy, reliable, well supported and secure. It’s a big investment, but if this phone can last me 3 years, I’ll be quite pleased and based on the performance of my 6s (my batteries were replaced by Apple about just over a year in, so I never experienced this slow down that was sensationalized in the media) I feel it will continue to work well for my needs.

    I'm not the type of person that needs the new model every time a new model is released. IPhones are expensive and I like to get our money's worth out of them. I LOVE the larger size of this phone and would continue buying the Plus models in the future as it feels so much more secure in my hand and I'm less likely to drop it. The photo quality is wonderful, I'm beyond impressed with the battery life (even still in 2019!), and I use my phone A LOT for pretty much everything: calendar for a busy family of 7, weather, emails, texts, snapchat, web browsing, online purchasing, checking online reviews of items while I'm at the store and debating a purchase, and even checking nutrition facts while I'm at the grocery store. I use ApplePay wherever possible (so handy!!) and it feels very secure as far as my personal information goes. I have had no problems with any of the updates, the 256gb memory is HUGE I have over 9,000 photos on my phone, many videos, over 1,000 contacts complete with addresses and emails, a whole library of songs for the gym as well as some just for fun, and I'm a text-thread saver too. (Haha) It's my alarm clock, my reminder of all things, my calendar (easily shared with the rest of our family and I love that I can make different calendars so I only share the calendar that pertains to each person), and basically my computer when I'm not home...or even sometimes when I AM home and just need to look something up or reply to an email. Love love love my iPhone and this is my favorite one yet! I'll be holding on to this one until it gives up on me.

    The 8 is an iPhone

    The 8 is an iPhone, meaning that its not much different from the iPhone 6/6s or 7. After playing with the X, the 8 is almost boring! However, it is faster, in fact I have an iPhone 6s issued through work and the 8 is hands down much faster. i am still getting used to the home button, which has a different feel. Upon setup there are options on how much pressure you want, in-order to get the home button to work. IOS 11 itself takes some getting used to. I went from an iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy S6 (people may disagree with me) but I see a difference in the hardware/software. Android is nice and customizable but I had icons shifting around, icons disappearing, Facebook not updating (most likely due to the Sprint network), etc. IOS is stable, easy to figure out, and more standardized. The 8 does not have 2 cameras on the rear like the X, therefore you cannot take portraits or images with DOF. There is also no optical or digital zoom like the X or 8+. For me it was about the music, I get 256gb worth of space, which is sweet. The rest of the things I can live with....first world issues right? The display to me looks Ok, similar to the 6s. However, apparently on 8 the display has been tweaked. It has increased brightness, Phone 8 also delivers. It adds support for the main HDR (high dynamic range) standards - Dolby Vision and HDR10 - which have been adopted on Netflix, Amazon Video and iTunes. Yes you’re not getting Full HD (let alone Ultra HD) on an iPhone 8 but the HDR is nice to have. Battery life is improved, on a full charge, I noticed this quickly. The 8 jumps into wireless charging. There is also no headphone jack but hey we live in a wireless world. Time to switch to bluetooth! Overall the 8 may not seem like that much, its still an iPhone and worth the upgrade.

    I have always been the type to purchase the latest and greatest iPhone. I have had every iPhone since the iPhone 3G. When the X was announced, I was very impressed with the display and technology behind FaceID, however, TouchID was something I was not willing to give up. I tried a Samsung Galaxy S8+ and loved the display and force press home button at the bottom. I returned the device due to the OS and applications were not as well built as with iOS. I chose this 8+ due to having Touch ID, ability to have a home button of some sort, wider aspect ratio, $200 cheaper, easier repairability. This phone has the exact same specs for the exception of the display, FaceID, and OIS on the telephoto lens which I rarely use anyways. Battery life coming from a 7+ is great, although a modest improvement. I can usually get about 8 hours of usage and 24 hours of standby. Video quality seems to be greatly improved, I love 4K 60 FPS and 1080P 240 FPS is amazing! Overall speed and performance is unreal. It's amazing how fast the A11 chip is. I love wireless charging. Picked up some Samsung wireless chargers and I don't think I have plugged the phone in once since i've had it. I will say that I had to put the phone on a scheduled DND since I am unable to lay it on it's face to charge with wireless charging. At night, notifications would illuminate my entire bedroom if I did not schedule DND.

    I debated a lot about this phone or the X, Note 8 and S8+. I’ve had iPhones since the 3GS and tried a few Android devices in between. Samsung makes wonderful phones, just not a fan of the android software. All the benefits of android don’t really apply to me. I don’t customize or need all the bells/whistles just a very solid phone that works. I had a iPhone 6 for 3 years and it was very solid. It begun slowing down after iOS 11 using multiple apps more so than the past so I upgraded to the 8. The X was simply out of my budget. If the Note 8 or maybe S8+ ran iOS I would have bought one of those. Overall going to the 8 was a simple process with the new migration in iOS 11, I was transferred over and fully working in 20 minutes. Sold old phone on swappa and away I go. Overall the 8 Plus is a very good phone. Camera is nice, MUCH faster than my 6, but otherwise much like my previous phone. True tone display sounds nice and works but found it to be of little value to me. Probably more useful on larger screens such as the iPad. Battery life is excellent as usual. Probably could go 2 days on my use. I also have an Apple Watch, no issues there either. I’m happy with it.

    I am past wanting to pay top dollar for the absolute latest smartphone technology. It’s freaking expensive. I had done that before, only to watch the technology of my iPhone 5 slowly but surely struggle more and more with increasingly complex application software, even though it was in perfect condition. The 8 Plus was a very good compromise for me. The large screen and the increased battery life were a big step up, and the improvement in the camera technology with this iPhone model made this a clear choice. The sound is much improved and the processors are quick and agile. Surprisingly, I find that this phone gets better reception than my old 5, even though I use the same carrier. I read an online review about this being “the best, last version of the old familiar iPhone, before Apple changed the overall design with the X.” I’m very happy with this phone and happy that I didn’t spend up to $600 more just to try and capture the fleeting moment of the cutting edge of a technology (the XR and XS). The iPhone 8 Plus is pretty great for my needs.

    I wanted this phone for the camera and larger screen size...BUT.. it is really too big for my tiny hands... so something to think about for you gals with small hands... it is also too heavy to stay on my magnetic dash mount, and falls off... my other complaint is probably an apple issue... when I send a text it immediately goes to the white screen where you can make written words,,, and really does not want to change back even when hitting the done button... I find this irritating, since I almost never use that function... and the screen orientation , seems to always want to be horizontal rather than vertical. I know I can lock it, but I like the ability to use both... So much for the negatives... I LOVE the all glass case... no sign of any scratches, and for the first time ever I did not put a screen saver on it... there is of course a case on the back... Love the QR charging capability... bought a stand one, so it is upright beside me at the computer and charging always till full. Have been using iPhones since the very first one, so other than these things, it is an iPhone! works like it should... images are very pretty...

    When I first got this phone I had to get use with all the navigating from an android user for 8yrs. I would only hade one or two problem with it compare to android that freezes on me every hour of using it, my apps would crash, at a point where I get annoyed using my android phone. So, I tried to switch to apple and see whats up. I would say Im glad I did try this. I love the camera, the selfie camera not so much, I like the wide angle camera on my previous phone(samsung s6). The system runs really smooth with the A11 bionic chip. I use a lot of apps on my phone for many reasons and this iphone handles it all well. Overall, I think Ill stick with this phone for a little while untill another device comes up that I think worth switching.

    It’s not the latest, but it’s the greatest for my purposes. I’m a middle-aged guy who works hard and plays harder. I’m issued an iPhone 7 at work so I purchased the 8 Plus as my own. I think the 8 Plus is the best compromise of size and performance for the money. The hardware and software are much more glitch-free than the older (I’ve had 4 through 7) iPhones. Camera resolution is great along with stability when taking moving photos. Accessories available are far and wide and are shared with some other iterations of the iPhone. I have an Otterbox Defender case because I’ve been using them for years to protect iPhones, and this phone in that case is protected well enough to survive my hobbies as well as my job. Truly a user-friendly phone with great ergonomics and options. The extra memory is very nice too, as I’ve filled up iPhones in the past.

    People who need a bigger sized phone would love this phone. It does everything that an iPhone X does with a different front camera and screen to be precise. I have used the iPhone X and the iPhone 7 Plus and I really like this phone better than the two. The camera and portrait modes are phenomenal and the screen with true tone display works brilliantly. The battery life is really a boon and can go for a full day without ever having to plug it in. The only downside would be the weight of the phone. The glass makes is super heavy but its adjustable. The phone is a great alternative and has the pracitcality of the home button that is missing on the iPhone X.

    Great Phone. I was going to buy the iPhone X at first, but thought it was too gimmicky. Its a all "faceID" type of iPhone, I am not really drawn to that feature too much. I just need a iPhone that will work for me. I asked one of the Best Buy employees that had this version previously from her iPhone X upgrade, she felt that the iPhone 8 Plus had a better battery life. So one is expensive, and the other one is more expensive. I decided on the iPhone 8 plus instead, because its at a better price point, and has a better battery life. For a phone that has a enclosed battery, that is something really important to think of. The only real difference from both phones are their screens. The iPhone 8 plus screen is at 5.5 inch with a better battery, and the iPhone X edge to edge screen is at 5.8 inch, plus its FaceID/AugmentedReality feature. Other then that they're technically the same phone.

    If you’re upgrading from 6 or 6s yes do it. Consider the x. The 8 is better for a lot of people. If you use any kind of android stick with what you know. Get a better newer android phone. Apple people or considering iPhone, the 8+ is a great phone. Do research , talk to people with an open mind. Do not trust a salesman with tons of overstock of anything. Hold the phones learn their capabilities and shortcomings. Ask yourself, what do I use my phone for? A lot of people don’t require a high end phone. Some like ease of use. Some like to customize (android people, you know already if this is you). So many reasons to go in any direction. They all have strengths and weaknesses. Know your own needs and ask what best meets those needs at acceptable price and watch out for the guy who has trouble with you for not accepting his opinion as the word of God. Walk away. Enjoy discovery and deciding

    Snowman says that he owned the 7 Plus previously but after a long winter and meaningless summer it was time to upgrade. They say lucky number 7? Snowman says lucky number 8 as in fate or never too late for wireless charging. Lay the phone down on the insignia charging pad, Snowman says, and you’ll get that boost in power, like a shower after a long day of work before an evening with Ms. Snowman. The camera, Snowman continues, represnts a duality— like the simulacra of reality at war with your conscious interpretation of “the real” ... in short, Snowman continues, the camera is baller!

    I recently decided to upgrade from my iPhone 6 Plus to the iPhone 8 Plus (Silver/White Combo, 256GB) as I had no intentions to wait for the iPhone X. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I have only had my phone for only a couple of days now but am loving every second with it! The battery life lasts all day, the screen quality/resolution is breathtaking, the wireless charging feature is great and the camera is absolutely amazing! All in all, one of my best purchases to date!

    I upgraded from a 6S, which was a great phone, but my old eyes needed a little more screen area. The 5.5" size is actually perfect for me, not overly large but plenty big enough (not to mention super clear) for my needs. I chose this model over the "X", as I didn't want to pick up the phone for face recognition every time I wanted to use it. The new home button takes a little getting used to, but after a day or two feels natural. I was also a little skeptical about not having a headphone jack, but the package comes with an adapter, so it was a non-issue. The 256 gb storage is great too, and the beautiful red color gets lots of compliments. If you're on the fence about getting this phone, don't hesitate any longer, get it!

    My recent purchase of a new iPhone 8 Plus is a nice replacement for my 6 S Plus. The only thing I don't like is that between models Apple decided to deep six the "Rose Gold" color. The new "Gold" finish was what I went with, it has a hint of the old color which is better than nothing. Functionally my new iPhone works much faster and has a superior camera, which I haven't tried yet. I keep hearing complaints that the design of my Apple is "dated," which bothers me not at all. I'm just happy to be working with the 256gb I have now vs the 16gb I used to have, which will make owning the 8 Plus a pleasure!

    It’s an iPhone. Other mobile phones aren’t. Do you need more? I previously had an iPhone 6 Plus for three years. This is a definite improvement in speed and connectivity. I haven’t tried all the new features yet. It’s a noticeably heavier iPhone than the 6 Plus due to 3D Touch mechanism and the glass back panel. New features like 3D Touch and raise to wake reduce the number of times you push buttons. The updated home button (vs the 6) is markedly faster. My only thing I haven’t liked is that the 3D Touch vibration is noticeably weaker than the iPhones without 3D Touch, even turned up to max. Definitely a good upgrade for pre-7 owners.

    I would recommend this to a friend
