The 3-Minute Apple iPhone 8 Review

The shadow of the iPhone X looms large

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 4.5/5 ● Value: 3.5/5

The Best:

The Apple iPhone 8 is one of the most powerful phones on the market with incredible performance, a high-quality display, and plenty of storage space for all the photos you’ll take with its impressive camera.

The Bugs:

Although there’s a lot to like about the iPhone 8, Apple didn’t exactly reinvent the wheel with the latest addition to their smartphone lineup. The design is high-quality yet uninspired, they still aren’t including a headphone jack, and the phone is one of the more expensive ones on the market.

Is it for you?

The iPhone 8 is the latest and greatest from Apple. It’s a solid but uninspired improvement over the iPhone 7 with better performance, a gorgeous display, and more storage than its predecessor. While it’s an upgrade, it’s debatable as to whether it’s worth buying. With no major changes from the iPhone 7 and the looming release of the iPhone X, it’s not a bad idea to wait until the end of November to see how it stacks up against the other new Apple phone.

“There’s no denying that the iPhone 8 is an improvement over the iPhone 7, but do the improvements justify an immediate upgrade?”

Meet the Apple iPhone 8

As Apple’s latest iteration in its line of iPhones, the iPhone 8 offers some subtle but not unimportant improvements over its predecessor. While it has been criticized for failing to provide any sweeping updates and retaining some of the less popular features from the iPhone 7 (like the lack of a headphone jack), the phone has packed in some unflashy but notable upgrades that make it worth considering.

What we like

Apple has found the successful smartphone formula with the iPhone. The iPhone 8 doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. With the introduction of bigger screens on nearly bezel-less phones from competitors like Samsung and LG, some thought Apple would make sweeping changes. They did, just not with this phone. That said, there’s some logic to not messing with the features of a phone that has consistently remained one of the top smartphones on the market.

The iPhone 8 features an improved the display via the addition of “True Tone” technology. This feature adjusts the display based on your environment to make sure you get the correct colour balance at all times. While the technical specs of the screen didn’t necessarily improve all that much, the addition of this feature makes the screen look noticeably better in a lot of situations.

The Apple iPhone 8 is also a step up in terms of performance. The iPhone 8 (along with its bigger brother, the iPhone 8 Plus) is one of the fastest phones ever made. It won’t have trouble running any app you throw at it.

The addition of wireless charging technology is a notable improvement, although it’s currently more of a gimmick since Apple’s AirPower charging pad doesn't arrive until next year. That said, there are still many compatible third-party wireless chargers available. Just don’t expect them to charge the iPhone quickly. More storage (64GB or 256GB), the always impressive camera, and solid audio quality round out the best features of this phone.

What we don’t like

We mentioned above that Apple didn’t see the need to reinvent the wheel with this iPhone. So, it’s unsurprising that the iPhone 8 has some flaws. The biggest of these may be its design. In the era of bezel-less phones with big screens, it’s a bit hard to justify spending so much money on a phone with such a dated design. It pretty much looks like the iPhone 7, which isn't necessarily bad. Still, it was a missed opportunity for innovation (though Apple is doing away with bezels on their upcoming iPhone X).

The exclusion of the headphone jack is another offender. It appears that Apple has doubled down on its controversial decision, so it may be something that we have to accept as the new norm. Still, not being able to charge your phone and listen to music without Bluetooth headphones or another adapter definitely holds the phone back.

There are also no improvements in battery life with the iPhone 8 (vs. the iPhone 7) and it’s also pretty expensive - even after considering the updates.

Should you buy it?

There’s no denying that the iPhone 8 is an improvement over the iPhone 7, but do the improvements justify an immediate upgrade? If you’re after the latest and greatest in Apple tech, you’ll definitely notice some improvements. Still, with the iPhone X just over a month away, it may be worth waiting until late November for Apple’s “real” new iPhone.

If you’re looking for a new phone for right now and are firmly on team Apple (or want the familiar iPhone design with the extra performance), the iPhone 8 is worth a look. If you’re already using the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, the need to upgrade is a little more questionable. If you don’t need a new iPhone right, right now, definitely wait until the iPhone X is released in November before pulling the trigger.
