Poor screen-to-body ratio (too much bezel for the size)
No 3.5mm audio jack (ships with a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter)
No microSD slot
iTunes is still required for manual music upload
No fast charger provided in the box (and the optional one is expensive)
Video camera still recording mono audio only
+ it's the most expensive phone in the market
I don't know how iphone users were brainwashed to believe that it's the best phone, and those loyalists who keep buying it no matter what. Seriously, it doesn't make any sense!!
Only three features more than iPhone 7: wireless charging because of all-glass design, better speakers and faster charging.
This phone should have been named as iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus as per Apple's nomenclature.
I cannot believe how pathetic apple is getting it this stupid phone microscopic battery to give you ridiculously slow functionality times they WILL NOT GET MY MONEY PERIOD. I am not a apple fanboy and I feel sorry for those ppl who always have to be charging their tones every use of use. How stupid of you Apple robbi g ur custeys like that

Aussie, 02 Oct 2017My iphone 6 is better than this. Great build and descent hardware .Nah, iPhone 8 is far more advanced. iPhone 6 was the worst, many issues (bend gate, touch disease and what not), not much different from iPhone 5s (camera, display and processor were almost the same), just a new flashy design. After that, iPhone 6s fixed everything and was a real successor to 5s, and iPhone 7 finally fixed that disgusting back design. And now iPhone 8 improves on all of that and looks even better than iPhone 7, it is the prettiest on so far in my opinion. They just have to get the software right, so that it is able to fully use that A11 Bionic beast and run cycles around the android competition
Disclaimer: this comment went more emotional then rational in the end, sorry for android users.
How much storage is taken up by ios 11 and other stuff out of the box?
Blue0172, 01 Oct 2017Apple do make grate chipsets but there is no true way to compare as both run different operati... moreGeekbench is made to be comparable across platforms. And yes, it's true that A11 is much faster then SD 835. iPhone 8 may at the moment not be faster then a stock android phone like OnePlus 5, because guess what, iOS 11 is heavier. While android stayed at their Same level since years, iOS added more and more features which need background resources so it became heavier. I always hear "If iPhone ran android it would be slower" Imagine an iPhone 5s with android, it would be blazing fast. But with iOS 11, it's just fast enough to be used. It's not because Apple makes them slower on purpose, iOS just gets heavier and heavier with more and more features with every major update. Android always keeps the same system requirements. Of course, Samsung has for example a skin which is even heavier then iOS, but nobody else except Samsung uses it. The sentence "if iPhone ran touchwiz" sounds more like a joke. But Geekbench will still not be affected, because it purely tests the CPU ignoring and filtering everything else. Antutu is different. My Xperia M4 Aqua was 20% faster after updating from Lollipop to Marshmallow, according to antutu. But Geekbench didn't change at all, because Geekbench is legit.
seriously speaking this is a good phone but with something to change,
put big battery, remove camera bump, add headphone jack, change to normal usb type c.
