Anonymous, 03 Oct 2017The S naming was perfect. It was no disingenuous like the numeric naming of S family phones. ... moreThe iPhone 4 was called "fourth generation iPhone" when steve jobs first mentioned the name on the keynote. The 4s is fifth and so on. The 8, 8 Plus and X all belong to the 11th generation. So the 4s was the one which really messed it up.

I had a Sony and the cable stopped charging after 3 months. Apple's cables are even more durable. My iPad cable now started to get the isolating torn, so I put a bit of duct tape around it and now it's fine. Not that big of an issue to be worth noting

If every fandroid thinks like that, I hope that ... morethats a big load of crap.
10 years using android not a single time had an infected phone.
i also work in cellphone industry and again only had 2 client with android infected phone and 1 with iphone.
Overblown crap is all i have to say.
NewHorizons, 03 Oct 2017IOS is the most stable and secure system around. I dont care about the extras you love about a... moremore crap.
Been working in cellphone industry for 10 years.
got 2 android user with infected phone.
got 1 iphone user with infected phone.
as for stability sorry iOS is the worst compared to android.
each OS update bring issues with iOS not with android.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2017but the fps is really bad... just tried clash of clans on the 8, it looks and feels like 30FPS... moreThat because apple using a crap in house GPU wich is like half the speed of the GPU in SD835 lol
NewHorizons, 03 Oct 2017zzzzzzz
IOS is enough to ditch all other phones and get Iphone.
besides , I dont care ab... moreWell you gonna love to know that the GPU in the A11 is crap.
so its gonna be inferior for FPS in high end games for mobiles compared to A9 and A10 fusion GPU not to mention Adreno 540 can be up to twice faster in the GPU departement.
I know you dont know that because lovely tech review website are sold to apple and did not talk about this ;)
That do explain why the SOC die is smaller than A10 fusion.
NewHorizons, 03 Oct 2017not important. people buy iphone for the IOS mostly which makes android look like a child.Wow what a very logical and explained comment..
iOS is limited ppl buy iphone because of status and that its.
Duel, 03 Oct 2017" PhoneBuff proved Note8 is faster than 8 Plus."
Actually 8 plus was faster, it won the fir... moremy LG G5 beat the iphone 7 plus in more than half the speed test i seen.
So what the point here?
I found something funny about new Apple A11 bionic soc.
its GPU is a joke.
Its some benchmark its slower than the GPU in the Apple A9 or apple A10 fusion soc.
Compared to adreno 540 its even nearly 50% weaker in many test.
So thats how they got those cpu performance.
reduce gpu performance and size on the die so reduce heat from GPU and put all in CPU.
Look good in benchmark but on the long run its will give a bad experience for VR and or gaming and GPU intensive app.
What i find funny is no one speak about this on tech review website lol.

That something I'd expect from fandroid but not a fellow iphone user.Just remember there is a reason,actually hundreds milions good reasons why Apple stick to 4.7" and even bring back 4".
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2017I really wonder everyone notice xperia bezel but not iphone..How ironic, not only this, and the repetitive design from 2014, at least Sony did some new touchs in 2016.
Oathbreaker, 03 Oct 2017I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the ... moreNext years iPhone X logically will be called iPhone XS, for the extra small cutout in the top. ;)
Apple need to increase the battery capacity of non plus model... Really very poor battery life.
Thanks, gsmarena. Very generous reviews of realistic 66hrs of battery life, others brided site rated the iphone 8 battery better than s8??? Im buying sony xz1c, i like small phone but never again buy apple after the iphone5.
Rimoti, 03 Oct 2017Nothing about the iPhone 8 #splitgate yet? Only if the current 2 becomes hundreds like Samsung's S7, then yes.

See S means "process", like upping the number means a new generation.
So you had iphone (1), iPhone 3G (2nd gen), iPhone 3gs (still 2nd gen), iPhone 4 (3rd gen), iPhone 4s (still 3rd gen), iPhone 5 (4th gen), iPhone 5s (4th gen still), 6 (5th gen), 6s (5th Gen), 7 (6th Gen), 8 (6th gen still).
Iphone change gen every two years. One could say that since iphone 6 we're in the same gen actually. So 7 should had been named 6s 2016 and 8 6s - 2017 ... if we were to be frank.
It's actually iphone 7 that messed things up. It made minor changes yet upped the number. By comparison 6 had different size, design, aspect ratio and screen size , all major *external* differences. Same between iphone 5 and iphone 4, same between 4 and 3gs (diffent size, design, resolution in that case)

i think the poor quality of the lightning cable should also be mentioned as one of the biggest flaws of this phone. i hate how fragile it is
I believe Apple should have never had "s" models. Next year if the next iPhones look like the X, still call it XI. The iPhone 4 was the only named properly for the generation it was released. 4s messed up the order. We should be on iPhone 11 this year. Many cars look the same year after year but still are labeled the year they will get released.
Apple should either drop the numerics and just call it iPhone like they do to their Macs and iPads. Or call it XI since X gave them a fresh start at naming them. So by 2020, we would have iPhone XIII and it would mean that iPhone is 13-years old that year. Apple really screwed up the naming thanks to the s naming.
