Should You Buy?

Overall, the Apple iPhone 8 is a great phone which is still not great! It packs in one of the best processors in the world along with excellent cameras, premium good looking design, good battery backup, all the goodness of iOS and Apple’s brand value. However, when you see it in comparison with Apple’s own iPhone X or the other flagship phones, it looks outdated with those thick bezels and a bit boring with a similar design like the last-gen iPhones. And not to forget that it still comes with a very hefty price tag, where it is a completely wrong choice. A great phone, in the wrong time zone!
