Our Apple iPhone 8, 64GB Review

✅ Reasons to buy
  • Takes great pictures
  • Wireless charging
  • Works great even as a refurb or older phone
  • Performs great and fast
❌ Reasons not to buy
  • Same old iPhone design
  • Fast charger not bundled
  • No headphone jack
⚖️ The Verdict

The Apple iPhone 8, 64GB is still a good phone to buy, even a few years after its release. It doesn’t have the latest and greatest features of the newest iPhones, but it doesn’t have their high price tags either. You get a high performing iPhone that works and still performs. It’s perfect for those on a budget and aren’t concerned with new looks. It’s no wonder it’s a best-selling phone in 2021!
