Nice, but nothing to buzz about

from Yahoo Tech
So that’s really it. Magnetic charging, faster chip, slightly better camera. And, of course, all of this runs on iOS 11, which brings a lot of goodies on its own. For sure, the iPhone 8 is a great phone—it’s better than the iPhone 7 in several ways. Still, if you’re currently carrying, say, an iPhone 6s or 7, there’s not much here to justify the upgrade. If you have something older, of course, the 8 will feel like a glorious improvement. But then again, so will the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, which are still on sale, and for a lot less money... Full review

Incredible, but you should wait for the iPhone X instead

from Business Insider
I've been using the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus for the past several days, and I think they are perfectly tuned and refined versions of last year's iPhone 7 models. They include cool new features such as wireless charging, amazing cameras, and Apple's fastest processor ever. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will be the best phones on the market when they go on sale Friday. And they'll most likely remain the best phones available until November, when the iPhone X arrives... Full review

A worthy upgrade

from The Telegraph
The iPhone 8 sits in an unfamiliar place. There’s a certain type of person who has to have the top-of-the-line iPhone each year, and unless they are worried about facial recognition or losing the home button, they will want to buy the iPhone X in six weeks time - not the iPhone 8 today...

Impeccable performance, excellent camera

from Engadget

The iPhone 8 is the smallest of Apple's newsmartphones, but don't let its size fool you: It's an incredibly powerful machine. The A11 Bionic chip inside ensures games and augmented reality apps run smoothly, and the phone's 12-megapixel camera is much improved over last year. The 8's redesigned body also allows for wireless charging (finally!), though we wish Apple had done more to update its design. Not everything is perfect, though: The iPhone 8 still doesn't withstand water to the extent of some rivals, and it lacks the dual camera found in the 8 Plus. Still, for fans who want a blend of...

Better, but mostly the same as the 7

from BuzzFeed
The iPhone 8 will bring you up to speed. Compared to the older models, it has a much better camera, faster processor, second-generation Touch ID, 3D touch shortcuts, water-resistance, double the storage capacity — and, now, wireless charging... Full review

The default option

from The Verge

After spending a week with the 8, I can’t think of a single compelling reason to upgrade from an iPhone 7. The 7 is still extremely fast, offers virtually the same design in a lighter package with a bigger battery, and will get almost every feature of the 8 with iOS 11. If you really want Qi wireless charging, you can get a slim $15 case that supports it. And if you’re dying for Portrait Lighting, there are tons of photo apps in the App Store that offer similar effects. Of course, if you're upgrading from anything older than an iPhone 7, the improvements in the camera and the ov... Full review

Crazy powerful for its size

from Tom's Guide
The iPhone 8 is well worth it if you prefer a smaller phone, offering fantastic performance, a great camera and a growing number of exciting AR apps... Full review

The status quo upgrade

from Cnet
The sensible, speedy iPhone 8 makes a nice upgrade to the iPhone 6S and earlier siblings, but we won't know until November how it compares to the much pricier iPhone X... Full review

Not the Upgrade You’re Looking for

from Wall Street Journal
The virtues I see in the iPhone 8 are niche: I’m glad you don’t have to spend $1,000 to get an improved camera and processor and even wireless charging, if that matters to you. But Apple’s confusing iPhone family now includes three pairs of practically identical phones: the regular and Plus versions of the iPhone 8, 7 and 6s. Don’t buy the spendiest one... Full review

A look into the augmented future of photography

from TechCrunch
As far as a consumer goes, however, the iPhone 8 is the easy traditional choice this year. It’s got nearly every technical enhancement that the iPhone X has outside of the TrueDepth camera and OLED screen. I think the mental calculus on this one is probably closer than it’s ever been, but the framework is roughly the same: If you’re the kind of person who buys the high end iPhone every year then wait for the iPhone X. With the one caveat that if the notch for the depth camera on the front of the X offends you, well you have most of the major tech right in the iPhone 8... Full review
