Apple has recently unveiled its spanking new iPhone 8. There’s no doubt that iPhone 8 is a respectable improvement over last year’s model but iPhone X has surely taken the limelight. You will probably be wondering that ‘has Apple poured all of its creative juices into the iPhone X’, right? Well, a first glance will suggest so, but iPhone 8 is a safe bet in Apple’s latest line-up. In this iPhone 8 review, we’ll make you familiar with all the ins and outs of the Apple’s latest creation. Let’s have a look.
iPhone 8 Review
From the front, iPhone 8 looks identical to iPhone 7 meaning that it has the same 4.7-inch display. At 148 grams, iPhone 8 is the heaviest phone till date. The right side of the phone boasts the wake/unlock button while the left side houses the volume up/down button along with the mute switch. Talking about the home button, it seems that Apple is saying goodbye to iPhone 8 home button to take full advantage of its top-to-bottom display.
The flagship device makes use of a glass back making its design more stunning. The Cupertino-based giant has also added the wireless charging option in its new device.
iPhone 8 features a 4.7-inch display designed to adapt color temperature and intensity to the ambient light in a room for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience. It includes a new six-core A11 Bionic chip, which Apple says is the smartest and most powerful chip ever introduces in a smartphone.
The iOS device features improved front and rear cameras with better sensors that let 83% more light into the wide-angle camera. The shutter speed and focus are a bit faster. It is also able to shoot 60fps, 4K video, and 240fps, 1080p slow-motion.
What’s more, iPhone 8 has been designed with augmented reality apps. Its redesigned stereo speakers are up to 25% louder than the speakers in iPhone 7 and come with deeper bass. The device even provides support for LTE advanced for data transfer speeds up to 45Mb/s.

The next point in our Apple iPhone 8 review is its performance. As is usually the case with each new iPhone, Apple has also introduced a new A-series processor. The A11 Bionic chip includes six cores from which four are dedicated to general tasks such as browsing the web and checking emails. The remaining two cores are intended to maximize performance, specifically during graphics intensive processes such as augmented reality and gaming.
The four efficiency cores of the A11 Bionic offer the same computing power as Apple’s A8 chip, but at one-third of the required power.
The only complaint about overall performance is that it is more focused on iOS 11 than the iPhone 8 itself. Many users have experienced issues like the device soft restarts itself after interacting with notifications from the lock screen.

The factual news with the iPhone 8 concerning battery is the addition of wireless and fast charging. There are two wireless charging standards, PMA and Qi. To be clear, it’s not a completely wireless solution. Given that the pad must have power running to it, so there’s a cord involved. However, to charge an iPhone, you only need to place it on the charging pad and it will begin charging.
On the other hand, ‘fast-charge capable’ means that the device can be charged to 50% battery life in 30 minutes.
