Everything you need to know about the Apple iPhone 8

A view from our experts

Rated High

Pros

  • Great camera
  • Blazingly fast
  • Colourful display
  • Wireless charging is a nice extra

Cons

  • Design not as innovative as iPhone 8
  • Battery life could be better
  • Larger bezel that some other smartphones

It was the iPhone X, not the iPhone 8, that got all the attention during Apple's big autumn 2017 launch. And considering how similar the iPhone 8 is to the iPhone 7, that's not much of a surprise.

From the outside the iPhone 8 looks almost identical to the iPhone 7; rounded corners, TouchID home button and a thick bezel running around the display. But there are some key differences, though likely not enough of them if you already have an iPhone 7 in your pocket.

The back is now glass to enable Qi wireless charging, the processor has been upgraded to work better with augmented-reality apps and the camera takes crisper, clearer shots.

There's been a slight improvement to the battery life, but you'll probably still need to charge up on a nightly basis.

Wrapped up in a stylish all-glass body, iPhone 8 is Apple's most durable design to date. Reinforced with an aerospace-grade aluminium band alongside a new kind of glass, this sturdy smartphone is ready to withstand the bumps and knocks of everyday use.

iPhone 8 is also precision-engineered to protect against water, splashes and dust, so you won't need to worry about sudden spills or getting caught in the rain. Available in a choice of space grey, silver and gold, it features a precise colour-matched glass and aluminium finish.

I purchased my iPhone 8 to replace my 6s when it was first launched. I was very impressed with the features and updates of IOS 11 and the transfer from the 6s was seamless.
