Second iPhone for me

Since everyone who has had an iPhone previously knows their way around iOS, I'm only going to review the new chassis. I'm coming from a 6S so the difference in size is noticeable. The home button is no longer a button but a virtual "button" that reacts to pressure. I like this over the real button and definitely provides a new experience. The new speaker layout sounds much better than the old 6S, but sounds a little tinny if you are listening to music through it, but videos and speakerphone sound excellent. The build is still solid and is slightly lighter than a 6S as well. Now for the glass back. It looks amazing but is a fingerprint magnet and is quite delicate, so a case is in order. The Apple leather case is what I use and I highly recommend it. I haven't gotten a charge pad yet, but I'm looking forward to getting one. Overall, this is a great upgrade for 6 and 6S users and with the upgraded processor you notice the increase in performance.

Battery 10/10 After a few days use, I've only had to charge it a couple of times. I'm sure this will change with time.

Probably the last best iPhone

Probably the last great true iPhone. Until Apple fixes the mess that is the gesture based controls on their new all screen iPhone and removes that ugly notch, I am afraid that the days of great iPhones are over.

If you are an iOS fan and an Apple fan, it doesn't get any better than the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus.

Good phone

iphone 8 does not have much difference with iphone 7. The camera quality is quite good for me. It run smooth for now. The battery life is like iphone 7. Great phone with wireless charging. overall it is a good phone even though the features offers are almost like iphone 7 but it is a great phone.
