Personal Review:

I really like the iPhone 8 series. Right now if I want to buy an iPhone I would consider looking at any iPhone from the 8 and upwards but that doesn’t mean I will settle for it. The iPhone 8 doesn’t come with a double camera which is a con for me. The difference between an iPhone 8 and an iPhone 7 is little so why buy an iPhone 8? Try out the iPhone 8 Plus. I do wish all the features of the 8 Plus were in 8 because I do love the size of 8. The 8 Plus is “kinda big” for me. It looks more suitable for women than men. That’s what I do feel and my personal review of the iPhone 8 series. You are free to criticize in the comment section of this post below.
