I’ve been using iPhone 8 for almost two months now. What I noticed in my daily use? Read for yourself.

First the technology:

The iPhone 8, just as it came to me from the Box, is in space grey, has front and rear glass and is heavier than the iPhone 7.

Under the 4.7 inch Large (small) display, an Apple A11 bionic chip works, also 2GB of RAM and a 64 GB of comprehensive memory is build in.

The Battery

The most important thing: It’s small, but it’s very powerful. 2 days with intensive office use no problem. The 1821 mah small battery is also charged relatively fast without the quick charge function of the non-included quick charge charging cable, in about 2 hours with the power supply included in the package. I only charged the iPhone by wireless charging.

The Display

New but still old. The retina display in the iPhone 8 is no competition for the Display build in the iPhone 7, but in my opinion, only the true tone function is new on the iPhone 8 display. This Feature adjusts the display colors by means of a sensor to the ambient light.

The processing

The iPhone 8 is, as known by Apple, high-quality processed, has now also thanks to the glass back wireless charging on board. However, the glass back also makes some problems. On leather or wooden surfaces, the iPhone 8 tends to move by it’s own. So, the iPhone 8 has already jumped on the floor from the leather couch and the desktop within the first week. By the power of the Taptic engine alone.

Since the iPhone 8 has the same proportions (up to a few millimeters) and also the buttons for loud/quieter, power and the mute switch in the same place, you can use also iPhone 7 cases.

The Camera

The camera from iPhone 8 convinced me especially when it got a little darker. Here you can get out of the camera considerably more than for example from the iPhone 6s. The front camera is the same as in the iPhone 7, I don’t actually use it.


The iPhone 8 is worth it if you want to go into the Apple cosmos, but don’t want to miss the high end luxury. Users of older Android devices or the iphones before the iPhone 7 can upgrade without worries. For iPhone 7 owners, the upgrade is definitely not worth it. Even for owners of current Android flagships it is not worth switching to the iPhone 8. Here I recommend the iPhone X more than the iPhone 8.
