There are some great things about the iPhone 8 including the addition of wireless charging, 64GB storage as standard and a fast A11 Bionic processor. However, this all comes at a higher price and everything else is largely the same so we can't imagine or recommend iPhone 7 users upgrading. Those on an older device like an iPhone 6 or older will experience a much bigger change.
Comparing the iPhone to Android rivals is difficult as many users will be on one side of the fence already. Forgetting about software, the iPhone 8 simply doesn't excite like flagship rivals including the Galaxy S8 and LG G6.Read more

Don’t let the iPhone 8 name fool you – this is very much the iPhone 7S, an incremental upgrade on 2016’s 4.7-inch iPhone with a few additions here and there, but nothing to really wow.
The iPhone 8 is still an excellent smartphone; it’s premium, powerful, and boasts a great camera and a wealth of applications. For the average iPhone user it fits the bill, but for those hoping for more given the higher price tag, you’re out of luck.
The extra power under the hood means everything is slick on screen, but no more so than the already snappy iPhone 7, and while the glass rear is a nice change of pace, and wireless charging support a handy convenience, they don’t exactly excite.
Essentially, the presence of the iPhone X has ruined the 8's chance of being a lust-worthy phone - yes, it's a cheaper route into a new iPhone, but Apple's brand is built on always wanting the best available, and this phone - therefore - feels like second best.Read more

The iPhone 8 is a gorgeous, sleek and incredibly powerful smartphone, there’s no doubt about it. The A11 Bionic chipset provided the highest benchmark scores ever, leaving Android rivals in the dirt, and the low-light camera performance is a marked improvement on the iPhone 7.
But no matter how good it is, it just isn’t a tempting enough upgrade for current iPhone 7 owners. If you’ve got an older iOS device or are looking to switch from Android to iOS, the iPhone 8 is a great option, but iPhone 7 owners might not feel it’s worth the upgrade – especially with a raised base price. The addition of wireless charging is handy, but there won’t be a noticeable difference in performance between the 7 and 8 for the majority of tasks.Read more
