iPhone 8 Repair Information

  • iPhone 8 Device Details & Repair Info

    You have a choice of three colors: Silver, Gold, and Space Gray. At first glance, the Space Gray appears black, but look closer and you’ll see that the glass is tinted dark gray. The Silver is much as you’d expect, and the Gold has a peachy tint to it.

    The ugly antenna bands have been reduced to small strips at the top and bottom of each side. You’ll find the power button and SIM card tray on the right spine, and the volume controls and switch on the left. The Lightning port on the bottom edge is flanked by a speaker and microphone, and there’s nothing up top. There’s no triumphant return for the 3.5mm audio port, but Apple includes a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter in the box.

    A mirrored Apple logo sits front and center on the back of the phone, and the camera and flash jut out from the top left. This “camera bump” is another reason to invest in a case, otherwise the iPhone is always resting on the camera when you lay it down on its back.

    The iPhone 8 feels solid and expensive, slightly more so than the iPhone 7. It’s a comfortable size to slip into a pocket and it’s one of the best phones on the market for easy one-handed operation.

    Apple has refined this design over the last three years, so it’s highly polished. But familiarity breeds contempt, and when you look at the front of the iPhone 8, it’s hard not to feel some disappointment at just how familiar it is.

    Screen observations and sound quality

    The fact that Apple is buying into the bezel-less trend in such a big way with the iPhone X makes the big bezels on the iPhone 8 harder to explain. For innovation in design and display over the last couple of years, you must look to Apple’s main rival, Samsung, because it popularized edge-to-edge screens and OLED technology. And it was LG that pioneered the elongated aspect ratio that makes larger screens manageable one-handed.

    When Apple jumped onboard with these trends, it tacitly admitted that the iPhone 8 design is out of date. The main refinement on the front of the iPhone since the iPhone 6 came out is the evolution of the home button, but it remains unchanged from the iPhone 7. While TouchID continues to work extremely well, we would have liked to see more focus on the screen.

    Just look at the numbers. The iPhone 8 measures 5.45 × 2.65 inches, but it only has a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1,334 × 750 pixels. The Galaxy S9, by contrast, measures a very comparable 5.81 × 2.7 inches, yet manages to pack in a 5.8-inch display with a resolution of 2,960 × 1,440 pixels. In case you’re wondering, the iPhone X measures 5.65 × 2.79 inches, and also has a 5.8-inch display, but with a resolution of 2,436 × 1,125 pixels.

    Apple admitted that the iPhone 8 design is out of date.

    The only real boost to Apple’s IPS LCD is the addition of True-Tone technology which is designed to tweak the look based on the lighting of your environment to ensure colors are consistent. But it’s tough to see any real difference without holding an iPhone 7 next to it.

    Having said all that, the iPhone 8’s display is bright, legible in a variety of lighting conditions, and probably the best IPS LCD around. It’s comfortable to read on for long periods, movies and games look detailed, and iOS 11 looks great. But, ultimately, it’s simply not as sharp as virtually every other display in this price bracket, and it has some of the biggest bezels around.

    One welcome improvement is the updated stereo speakers, which make the phone 25 percent louder than the iPhone 7. There’s a bit more bass and it sounds great for a phone, but most people will still want to use headphones. We’re pleased to see Apple has added Bluetooth 5 support, so if you go the wireless route, you’ll find it’s better, faster, and supports a longer range than Bluetooth 4.2 in the iPhone 7.

    Powerful performance thats leaves previous models standing

    While the design and display remain largely unchanged, the iPhone 8 is packing some serious cutting-edge hardware under the hood. Apple’s new A11 Bionic chip is incredibly fast. It combines two high-performance cores with four high-efficiency cores and has an Apple-designed GPU inside.

    We found the iPhone 8 to be slick and speedy in navigation, apps, and games. Nothing we threw at it made a dent, whether it was an incoming call during a game of Asphalt 8: Airborne, which it handled gracefully, or jumping out of Netflix to read an email, the iPhone 8 took everything in its stride. Make no mistake, this is a powerful device.

    When we ran Geekbench 4, the iPhone 8 managed a single core score of 4,270 and a multi core score of 10,259, compared to the Galaxy S8 which managed 1,762 single core, and 5,723 multi core, and the HTC U11 which hit 1,926 single core and 6,493 multi core. Even the newer Galaxy S9 only scored 2,377 single core and 7,982 multi core.

    Running the AnTuTu benchmarking tool, the iPhone 8 scored 214,492. That compares to 155,253 for the Galaxy S8 and 175, 748 for the HTC U11, though the Galaxy S9 bests it on 261,876.

    Whatever way you slice it, the iPhone 8 is one of the most powerful phones around.

    Apple has put an extra 1GB of RAM in its larger iPhones, but the iPhone 8 gets by just fine on 2GB of RAM as far as we can tell. It’s not directly comparable with Android phones, which tend to have a lot more RAM, because the operating systems deal with memory management very differently.

    Stable software with iOS 11

    Just as the iPhone 8 brings refinements to a familiar design, so does Apple’s latest platform update, iOS 11. Perhaps the biggest addition comes via ARKit, which is a developer framework for augmented-reality apps and games. These employ your iPhone’s camera to overlay game elements, furniture, and more on your living room floor. In general, iOS 11 is a pleasure to use. Swipe up from the bottom to access the control center for all your quick toggles and sliders. Swipe down from the top for notifications. The only irritation coming from Android is the big dump of app icons on your home screen and its general lack of customisation options. There’s no doubt that iOS 11 is a slick operating system that’s very easy to get to grips with. There’s a high level of polish to everything, from the zoom as you jump in and out of apps, to the TouchID purchase animation. It feels coherent and looks stylish. The only slight issue we encountered was an automatic refresh in the App Store which made it impossible to search. After turning the iPhone 8 off and on again, the problem was gone and it hasn’t returned yet.

    Fantastic camera quality

    We were excited to take the iPhone 8 camera out for a spin. Although the iPhone 8 lacks the dual-camera set-up that you’ll find in the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, it’s still one of the best cameras we’ve used.

    The iPhone 8 has a 12-megapixel main camera with an f/1.8 aperture, optical image stabilization, and HDR. It’s designed to be easy to use; just point and shoot and more often than not, you’ll get a pleasing photo. We tried it out in a variety of different lighting conditions, indoor and out, and can confidently say it takes great shots.

    HDR is on all the time now and Apple has definitely tweaked colors to increase the saturation compared to the iPhone 7, though they’re still a lot more realistic and natural than something like the Galaxy S8. Low-light performance is improved, but it’s one of the few areas where the iPhone 8 can be outclassed. You will find noise and exposure issues in some low-light photos.

    Smartphone cameras have improved so much in the last couple of years, but Apple mostly remains on par with the best competitors can offer. The iPhone 8 matches its peers in most situations, surpassing in a few and falling short in others, but as time moves on and cameras continue to improve, there are better performers available.

    Just point and shoot and more often than not, you’ll get a pleasing photo.

    Battery Life and Charging

    Battery life is an area where Apple really needed to play catch up, so it’s disappointing to find that the iPhone 8 has an even smaller battery than its predecessor at 1,821 mAh. Thankfully, that disappointment is mitigated by the fact that Apple has added fast-charging support, so you can charge up 50 percent of the battery in 30 minutes. There’s also wireless charging support through the Qi standard, made possible by the new glass back.

    Sadly, the smile may be quickly wiped from your face when you realize that the charger in the box is the same old 5W/1A affair that shipped with last year’s iPhone. If you actually want to enjoy fast charging then you have to pay an extra $35 for a USB-C to Lightning cable and you’ll need an Apple 29W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter. If you don’t have one of those – they come with some iPads and MacBooks — then you’ll have to buy that too. They start from $50 for the 29W version.

    We delighted to find that the Qi wireless charging works just fine with our array of wireless charging pads. If you don’t have one, you’ll be glad to learn that you can get a decent one for less than an Apple power adapter. Being able to place your iPhone 8 on a pad on the nightstand or in your car and have it charge, albeit slowly, is very convenient. It was only able to draw 5W on release, but Apple’s iOS 11.2 software update has since increased that to 7.5W.

    For heavy users the iPhone 8 will require at least daily charging. On an average day of mixed use it should make it to bed time, but you’ll probably want to institute an overnight charging routine. If you don’t watch movies or play games on your phone, then a couple of days is not completely out of the question.

    We found the AR games we played were a particular drain, easily consuming 30 percent in just half an hour or so of game time. On the other hand, our iPhone 8 lasted a day and night out on the town with plenty of camera use and, by turning on low-power mode, we got home to an outlet the next day before it completely died.

    Your Warranty information

    You get a standard one-year warranty from Apple, starting from the date of purchase, that covers the iPhone 8 for manufacturing defects. It does not cover you for any accidental damage or liquid damage. For $130 you can take out AppleCare+ which extends the warranty for an additional year and reduces two incidents of accidental damage to a nominal fee. For example, a cracked screen will cost $30 to replace instead of $150.

    The iPhone 8 comes with 64GB for $700 or with 256GB of storage for $850. You can buy it unlocked directly from the Apple Store, or pick one up from any of the major U.S. carriers.

    This is an incremental update over the iPhone 7 and, as good as it is, we’re not convinced it merits a jump of $50 in the starting price. If Apple could have put a 5-inch OLED with a 1080p resolution into this body, it would have been easy to recommend the iPhone 8, but with the iPhone X available, it’s a much tougher sell.

    New Back Glass Cover

    The back cover on the iPhone 8 unfortunately is made from glass. Its looks fab but obvious highly prone to breaking and very difficult (and expensive) to replace. If you rear glass is intact we would always strongly recommend to invest in a protective casing and additional tempered glass protection.
