iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus: My Experience

As an Android phone user since 2012, I thought using an iPhone from Apple would not be that different. Over the years as I recall, Google Android was copying the design and trends from Apple’s playbook so I thought I would not be missing anything by sticking to Android.

After using the iPhone, I realized I missed out. The iPhone is easy to follow and has a really nice UI that is very easy to get accustomed to. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are both plenty fast. Faster than my Android LG Stylo 3 Plus it replaced and the Apple App store has everything I want.

The iPhone 8 Plus has a premium feel to it and it cost me a lot over $900 CDN brand new from the Freedom Mobile carrier here in Ontario, Canada. I like the weight of it and it is easy to hold. With the long battery life, I can go through the entire day and more; sometimes two days. The sound quality is superb. It has vibration feedback that I can feel during alerts which allows me to respond quickly unlike the weak vibration of my LG phone.

What is very important now that I realize is how much of a difference the screen makes for viewing. The screen quality of the iPhone makes my eyes less tired and ache. I did not realize the difference in screens were until I bought my iPhone. Buying a premium phone is worth it just for the screen I now believe. I will now pay double for a phone that has a great superior screen.

I like my iPhone. There is no shortcomings with it. I can understand why more than 50% of phones sold today are Apple iPhone products. It has all these benefits while holding its value for resale after because of the quality and support for years.

I give the phone 10 stars out of 10 stars.
