iPhone 8 Contracts

Apple's iPhone 8 wasn't even the top-of-the-line iOS phone when it came out, but it's still a robust choice for functionality and speed, with a traditional home button packing an easy-to-use Touch ID fingerprint sensor to boot. In short, it's as powerful as the iPhone X at a notably lower cost.

Back in 2017, the iPhone 8 was a brilliant smartphone. It might be the cheapest smartphone that Apple sells now but we wouldn't recommend it any longer unless you're really on a tight budget.

When Apple announces new iPhones, it typically drops a few aging devices, but the iPhone 8 has manage to survive unscathed. Apple now considers it the 'budget' entry to the iPhone series for people who want Apple's tech without paying for a high-end phone. That means it's still easy to pick up this smartphone from a variety of places at half (or more) off the price tag of the latest iPhone.

The 8 is a legacy iPhone through and through: if you've owned an Apple handset from the iPhone 6 onwards, you'll know exactly what you're getting with this smartphone. There haven't been too many changes over previous models, but for some, that's a bonus.

iPhone pessimists and Android fans (sometimes the same people) will be quick to point out the seemingly minor incremental upgrades over 2016's iPhone 7, but for those with an iPhone 6S or before, that's less of a problem - especially with the 8's more powerful chipset.

While it may not offer much over its direct predecessor, the iPhone 8 has enough about it to make it an exciting upgrade for those with older iPhone handsets. It also runs the new iOS 12 software without a hitch.
