    I was in serious need of an upgrade but wasn't quiet ready to get rid of my home button. The 8Plus has everything I need and even a few things I didn't know that I needed.

    Great phone. The designated mute button is a waste

    Love the new features and ultra fast response time. Camera is so reliable now. Only negative is the home button, I'm still adapting to the touch response.

    I'm not ready to move onto the homeless button yet. So I decided to stick with the 8plus! Great size and great camera! All I need in a phone really other than all the obvious!

    I finally made the leap to a plus size phone and I must say, I'm really enjoying the extra screen real estate. I've owned several iPhone's and the 8 Plus is by far the most advanced and sleekest design yet. I went back and forth between the iPhone X and the 8 Plus but decided I'm not quite ready to give up the home button yet and actually prefer it to face recognition. The camera is absolutely fantastic and I'm looking forward to exploring more of it's settings. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

    I have owned many iPhones, but this one was my first large iPhone! I love the performance and the screen size! It was a little glitchy when I first received it, but some updates from apple helped work out the kinks. I would recommend this one over the iPhone 10 due to the fact that it still has a home button and bezel, which isn't always a bad thing. It also has a pretty solid battery life.

    This is the first plus size phone I've ever gotten and it takes some getting used to holding onto it. Even on some surfaces it likes to slide away on its own. I can say that it definitely loads my apps much faster and retains more of them in memory instead of having to reload after leaving the app for a few seconds. However, buying a case for it seems to be problematic. I want a clear one to show of my red, but the reviews seem to indicate that the buttons won't work well. I did try to buy one at the store but couldn't get the power button or volume down button to function, so returned it.

    iPhone 8

    Apple has released one of its newest models, the IPhone 8. It comes in two different sizes, 4.7-inch display and 5.5-inch display and comes in three different colors, silver, gold, and space gray. There are two capacities, 64GB and 256 GB, depending on how much storage one uses. The phone comes in a box with a charger, headphones, and a headphone jack adapter. The IPhone is an all glass design and is resistant to water and dust. It also has a new display called true tone that adjusts white balance to match the light around you, to view in any environment. There's also an option to charge the phone wirelessly but that charger does not come with the phone, it's sold separately. The camera has deeper pixels and optical image stabilization for photos and videos. Portrait mode is a filter that takes sharper and naturally blurred background photos. PROS . Some of the pros is that it's a simple phone for any age to use. . You are able to adjust the screen font size and the brightness. . It is easy to navigate around the phone. Being a student it has helped a lot because it almost like a mini computer. There's almost apps for anything that one is interested in. . The all glass design makes it feel and look luxurious. . Having the phone be water resistant is a nice feature because then you don't have to worry about it being damaged. . The camera quality makes the photos come out raw and crisp. Details, saturation and definition makes the photos come out more natural. I don't feel the need to have to buy a nice quality camera. It has new filters, better flash, and portrait mode. CONS . It does not have a headphone jack which can be an inconvenient at times, if you were to not have the headphone jack adapter. . The home button can't be pressed all the way down unless your finger is on it. . Pricy and may not be affordable. Overall the IPhone 8 is simple and easy to use. I would give this product a 4 out of 5 because it does not have a headphone jack and it can be an inconvenient at times. The camera has made an impression on me, how well it's able to capture photos and videos. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Good but it's no Android

    I "upgrade" from an LG G5 Android phone to an iPhone 8 Plus running iOS 11.0.3. Some things were better and some were not. While my family has had many Android and iOS devices, the iOS devices cost more but generally get (much) more use, plus they hold their value better. My favorite Android device (which has gotten a lot of use) has been my phone (an LG G2, then G4, then G5). UPDATE: I ended up returning the iPhone 8 Plus and ordered a Pixel 2. There was just too much missing from iOS and the iPhone that Android had plus I was disappointed with the camera. I think the iPhone 8 is a decent phone but it's not for me. Read below for more. Hardware comparisons: * The G5 was much cheaper than the iPhone. @@@@@ The G5 has a user replaceable battery and microSD slot. @@@@@ The G5 is not waterproof but the iPhone is. @@@@@ The G5 has dual cameras and one is a wide angle lens... I will miss the wide angle lens. @@@@@ The G5 has fast charging and includes the needed cable and power adapter to do so. The iPhone 8 supposedly also has fast charging, but it will cost you $$$ to buy the needed cable and power adapter. @@@@@ The G5 has a small color charge/notification LED which is nice. The iPhone can use the flash for alerts (General->Accessibility->LED Flash for Alerts). @@@@@ The G5 photo aspect ratio is 16:9 and the iPhone's is 4:3. I *MUCH* prefer 16:9. Disappointed. @@@@@ My G5 developed a focusing problem with the main camera where photos would often be blurry, which is what prompted me to start researching new phones. @@@@@ The iPhone 8 Plus also has dual cameras, but no wide-angle camera... however, you get a 2X optical zoom camera and portrait mode photos which I am looking forward to. @@@@@ The iPhone 8 has (slow) wireless charging but the G5 doesn't. @@@@@ The iPhone 8 has 3D Touch but the G5 doesn't. @@@@@ The iPhone feels like high end hardware, has a great IPS screen, and has great build quality but it's a little on the heavy side. The G5 is good too but doesn't seem quite up to the iPhone. @@@@@ The glass back worries me but Consumer Reports says it's a rugged phone and survived their "tough 100 drops in the tumbler with just some minor scratches". iOS/iPhone negatives: * Speech recognition is not as advanced but it's not terrible either. @@@@@ Speech recognition doesn't give you options to choose from a list of phrases of what you might have said. @@@@@ I found it virtually impossible to place the cursor in the middle of a word when editing text. @@@@@ Sometimes when I tap something it doesn't respond and I've to tap it again. This seems to happen mostly on small buttons. I didn't have this issue on the G5. @@@@@ No always on display feature to show time and notifications. Many Android phones have had this for awhile, including the G5. Hopefully Apple will add this in an update as it's a very useful and convenient feature. @@@@@ Can't configure bottom row of touch buttons. On Android, I had a button to quickly show and hide notifications. I found it better and faster than having to swipe down. @@@@@ It seems Apple doesn't allow custom keyboards to access voice dictation... which means you have to switch keyboards to the standard one in order to access voice dictation. I use voice dictation a lot on my Android. @@@@@ Home screen is not as configurable. Cannot control icon layout as much. @@@@@ Some of my favorite apps (frequently used) are not available on iOS, like NOAA Weather and ColorNote. @@@@@ You can turn on 'Reduce Motion' to limit animations that slow things down, but there are still some fades and other effects that you can't turn off. @@@@@ Sharing photos to Google Drive made me always select the same folder (it didn't remember the selected folder). iOS/iPhone positives: * Frequent iOS updates. This is a big deal compared to most Android phones. @@@@@ Easier to communicate with other people who also have iPhones (and there are a lot of them). @@@@@ Can say "Hey Siri" to access Siri even when phone is laying down idle and without touching it. @@@@@ Better security (so I've read). @@@@@ Good integration across iPhones and iPads. @@@@@ I like the way that news is integrated.
