Apple iPhone 8 Review

Score: 9.9/10

Apple iPhone 8 is a top-level phone released back in 2017, provisioned with a 4.7" display, a very powerful Hexa-Core CPU ticking at 2390 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back side camera and a 7 megapixels front camera.

Apple didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 5.22 ounces phone. Apple made this phoneavailable only in a variety of color options: gold, red, silver and space gray. The iPhone 8 is slim, with a thickness of just 0.29". This cellphone is only 5.45" long and 2.65" wide, but it manages to hold a 4.7" screen. Talking about its body materials, the iPhone 8 is mainly built with Glass and Aluminum .

Apple designed the iPhone 8 with a completely amazing 4.7 inches display, and a 750 x 1334 resolution, giving this phone a unique graphic quality.

Apple decided to power this cellphone using a high speed Hexa-Core CPU ticking at 2390 MHz, included in an Apple A11 Bionic APL1W72 system chip with a big 2 GB of RAM. A great point of the iPhone 8 is its huge 256 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't include a slot for SD memory cards, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications without thinking about how much storage is left.

This phone offers wi-fi connection (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a wireless router), 4G LTE-A , a really fast connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (a slower 4G technology) and the fastest 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The iPhone 8 uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

This phone features two cameras, a 12 megapixels back side camera and a 7 MP front side camera. the iPhone 8's back side camera lens has a maximum 1.8 aperture so it can shoot very nice photos even in low light conditions. It also films videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 frames per second, and Full HD 1920x1080 slow motion videos at 240 frames per second (8 times slower than regular videos). In addition, this phone's camera also features time lapse video and auto-focus.

This cellphone also comes with many interesting features such as Fingerprint Sensor, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Navigation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone features a 1821 mAh medium Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that provides the iPhone 8 a quite short battery duration comparing with other similar phones. A possible problem to consider is that this device's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose capacity, leaving no choice but to buy a new device or maybe take it to an expert who can open it and replace its battery.

Apple is selling the Apple iPhone 8 for 849 dollars, which is expensive for comparing with similar devices. No matter if you will use it for playing games, you love taking photos, are looking for a phone to mostly use social networks or will use it as a work cellphone, this cellphone is definitely a very good choice for you. When you buy this device you also get USB Power Adapter, EarPods with Lighting connector, Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, Lightning to USB Cable and Documentation .
