Apple iPhone 8

Engadget Review

The iPhone 8 is the smallest of Apple's newsmartphones, but don't let its size fool you: It's an incredibly powerful machine. The A11 Bionic chip inside ensures games and augmented reality apps run smoothly, and the phone's 12-megapixel camera is much improved over last year. The 8's redesigned body also allows for wireless charging (finally!), though we wish Apple had done more to update its design. Not everything is perfect, though: The iPhone 8 still doesn't withstand water to the extent of some rivals, and it lacks the dual camera found in the 8 Plus. Still, for fans who want a blend of classic Apple style and top-tier performance, the iPhone 8 is an excellent option.
