iPhone 8: 3 Years Later!

by birtanpublished on November 25, 2020

Welcome back everyone so i've been talking so much about the iphone 12s that i totally forgot to talk about the older iphone so and the iphone 8 actually turned three years old just like a couple months ago and what's so fascinating is is that this was pretty much the last iphone to bring a home button up until this year we had the iphone se 2 which was in a way just a reincarnated version of the iphone 8. it shared a lot of those same components for the most part just really changed the internals in terms of this

Chipset and everything in the ram but i still think you know before the iphone se 2 came out it was like a pretty decent phone i think the eight plus was a really good pickup for that time but i think with the addition of the se2 it's really starting to make me appreciate the iphone 8 more because this is an old design but the fact that apple reincarnated it really makes me think that it's kind of more i guess updated this year than it was last year in a way

So the design is pretty much more acceptable i think and when you have phones like the iphone 12 pro that looks so good even three years later i guess like two years later at that time when the se2 came out apple is still recycling the same parts which really says a lot about the iphone 8 and the structure and everything now with the iphone 8 on the front it still it looks pretty okay you know i would definitely say it doesn't look like the newest device but i've said

This before and i'll say it again and i don't know if it makes sense but basically when people look at a phone like this they don't really think it's like a super old outdated phone with the amount of bezel on it they just say it's like an older type of iphone and i think people i think that sounds kind of better than like a super old outdated phone you still have that 4.7 inch display on the front and i've already done like a late 2020 review of this device but i wanted to hit on basically just what i

Love about it so much in the three years later now when this thing first came out it started off with ios 11. we are on ios 14 right now specifically 14.1 and i think for the most part like it's been a good ride you know i've been literally handling every single ios version on this thing since i was 11. and it's been a good ride you know ios 11 was weird i was 12 was better ios 13 was kind of good and ios 14 has really taken a toll on this thing in terms of battery life but that's been pretty much across the board for all the

Devices and i think for the front panel it's good enough for the most part it'll probably get the job done more so than a lot of other devices in my opinion and i think that's one thing that really has held up so well about this i think the chipset as well as the body i think this phone has a really good body to it i feel like you know the specific model that i have has a cracked back which is funny and it still feels really good when you look at this phone every single year that

This phone has been out apple has pretty much used this same type of design this was the first iphone technically since the iphone 4s or something like that that had a glass back and i feel like bringing the glass back with the wireless charging was something that was really cool and that was a huge addition at the time and apple has since then used every single iphone with wireless charging and with the glass back and i think you know with the addition of this iphone as well as the 4s

That really made a huge impact in my opinion on just the way how this phone feels and the premiumness to it and i think like i said before the biggest asset of this device three years later is the fact that it still feels like a super premium device when i use phones like the iphone 7 and 7 plus you can definitely feel like it's aged quite a bit because of the whole entire body this phone doesn't really feel like it which is really good and what's even funnier is

That like i said with the performance aspect it's really not a slow phone i mean this one came out in 2017 it wasn't a thousand dollar phone at the time but it was still like a good priced phone i think and i think when it comes down to everything this is still a really good performing phone for the most part now when you have phones like the 12 and 12 pro and things like that obviously those phones are the best performing phones at least the best performing iphones and i would recommend people to pick

Those up but when it comes down to just the price per value standpoint you can pick these things up for like around 200 definitely less than 300 and that's not a bad price to pay for a phone like this you know i would still recommend picking up an iphone 10 if you can but this is still a pretty decently built pretty decently performing iphone and i feel like every single year that this phone has been out i've talked about it every single one of those years and a lot of people as a consensus love this phone there are phones that i talk about

And some people really don't really like them too much i feel like phones like the iphone 6 for example that's a phone that just kind of like split down the middle either people love it or people hate it there's really not too much middle ground but with a phone like this i feel like everyone as a consensus just loves it i feel like 2017 was a tremendous you know year for devices we had the s8 we had the note 8 i think and then we had this phone and the iphone 8 plus and the iphone 10

Which was really awesome so i think a whole three years later this phone is still amazing it's still getting soft for updates which is really cool and from the iphone 8 to the sc2 you're definitely getting some improvements but i feel like this is a really good phone still and in terms of performance i compared it to the iphone 12 pro it's really not that bad like of course the iphone 12 pro is better but still this is like a pretty decently performing phone and for a day-to-day

Basis if you're somebody who's performance needs aren't crazy then this phone can definitely get the job done for sure but i still think this phone is held up very well and every single year after this phone came out and every time i compared it to another phone a lot of people still hype up the iphone 8 which means that there's still a lot i love about this phone so that really pretty much covers it up if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below hit the like button that means so much but definitely hit that
