Apple iPhone 8 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to upgrade from my iPhone 6 Just purchased the 64GB iPhone 8, I work in IT and work with Microsoft all dat long but I use Macs at home, I have a 6 which ran out of space and I decided to upgrade, it was so easy to transfer settings, just hold them next to each other- result :) Apple make it really easy, no cables, no messing, just works, absolutely love it and I know if it goes wrong, Apple will fix/replace no problem, expensive yes but definitely worth it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best iPhone i have ever used I bought this phone a week ago upgrading from the iphone SE. A lot off people has been saying things like there is no difference etc but this is because the IOS software is available on all devices so yes it will be the same- the difference is how the phone works- Much faster and responsive that previous models easily the best model they have made- The camera's and the true ton screen are excellent and i cant even begin to praise the speakers quality if sound and the volume on them enough.This is clearly the last of this kind of iphone and apple have ended it with a bag getting everything just right perfecting they have ever tried to get out off them. The iphone x along with the samsung s8 and note 8 are the future of phones and on a different level all together. I prefer IOS to android and that is why i have went down this route. I cant justify the price of the X no matter how good it is but i am the type off person who is happy to wait for the price to drop. All in all this phone will be a huge upgrade from iphone 6 and below and although it is better from the 6s and 7, people with those models might not notice the difference as much .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not worth the money Upgraded from a IPhone 6s and have recently returned it. Its nothing different. Only worth it if you have never had an iPhone before. Expensive for what it is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can’t keep with a iPhone se!! I bought the 8 and put it next to my se and tried various apps like fb eBay etc and clarity isn’t as good or as fast as an se and not is it as durable. It does look nice in space grey but that’s it! Total let down and yet another yr without upgrade. Thanks apple!
