You probably know everything about the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and the teardown of the new iPhones seems to have confirmed the other unknowns such as the amount of RAM and capacity of the battery.
But here are my first impressions and some interesting details about iPhone 8 Plus I thought were worth sharing.
It has to be said, right up front. With the rather significant caveat that the 4” screen on the iPhone SE isn’t that suitable for such 2016 immersive activities as high-def gaming and media consumption, in every other respect the iPhone SE is the perfect iPhone. With the gorgeous lines and form factor of the classic iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s but the cutting edge internals of the 6s, the iPhone SE is akin to either a blindingly good magic trick or an anachronism, a quirk of Tim Cook’s spare parts inventory. I lean towards the former and, overall, am very impressed indeed.
There’s an element of ‘emperor’s new clothes’ to the 2014/2015 iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s designs, I contend, in that, however much the internals are demonstrably better, the all-curved physical designs are somewhat ‘meh’. I’ve been saying for a couple of years that the classic iPhone 4 and 5 designs were prettier, easier to grip and more unique in the 2016 smartphone world. And with this, the iPhone SE, Apple just gave the world that classic design back, but massively upgraded internally. What’s not to love?
Apple recently released the iPhone 5s with all the fanfare, long launch lines and inventory shortages that characterize an iPhone launch. In early reviews, the iPhone 5s was deemed to be the best iPhone to date and, surprisingly, the best smartphone on the market. I’ve been using the handset for a few weeks now and are ready to chime in with my own opinion on Apple’s latest iPhone model. Read on as I take a deep dive into the design and some of the major features of the iPhone 5s.

Most of the reviews are as expected, reviewers have observed that the voice quality of the iPhone on Verizon’s network is a lot better than AT&T though download and upload speeds are slower.
