Our Apple iPhone 8 Plus, 64GB Review

✅ Reasons to buy

  • Maintains the familiar features of the earlier iPhone models like Touch ID and home button.
  • Easy to hold and use one-handed, with your thumb comfortably reaching most areas of the screen.
  • Supports wireless charging. A bunch of compatible charging pads are already available for purchase and in public places.
  • Supports iOS 14, so you can enjoy its latest features like Dark Mode.
  • Upgraded display adjusts to the lighting conditions you’re in, which makes the screen look better (even though otherwise the screen is the exact same as the iPhone 7).

❌ Reasons not to buy

  • The battery will likely not last a full day, so keep a charging cable nearby.
  • Design is bezel heavy and looks outdated. The latest phones are do not have bezels.
  • Glass on both the front and back of the phone make it slippery to hold, so it’s important to buy a case or bumper.

⚖️ The Verdict

Released in 2018, the iPhone 8 is much cheaper than the X and other more recent models. However, it’s camera, display, and other features are comparable to the newer models, making the iPhone 8 a lower cost, quality purchase.
