iPhone 8 – Cool features!

If you look at the iPhone 8, it’s not remarkably different from earlier iPhone models such as the iPhone 6 or 7.

On the inside, however, it is drastically different as Apple has introduced several features that allow you to do entirely new things with your iPhone.

From the iPhone 8’s trusted design to its faster than mac book processor, to its groundbreaking dual-camera system and perfected touch ID, it’s undeservedly overlooked in Apple’s line up of tech.

So we’ve put together a list of exciting things you can do with the iPhone 8

Augmented Reality – AR

The best new feature of the iPhone 8 is its ability to run augmented reality (AR) apps. Since AR technology is still relatively new and not so widely used, the number of apps using AR is continually increasing. The AR apps simply rely on the iPhone 8’s rear camera and provides a completely new way for people to play games, learn and shop. It’s also useful in everyday life: you can use AR to, for example, measure things easily without a tape measure.

Powerful photo editing

The iPhone 8 features Apple’s powerful new A11 Bionic processor and an improved camera. This makes the iPhone 8 an excellent tool even for professional photographers with the addition of the App Store, which boasts a great collection of photo editing apps. With the right apps, you can make your photos look superb and professional – quickly and effortlessly.

4K video

The iPhone 8’s camera is one of the most powerful smartphone cameras on the market. It’s the finest feature, its ability to shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second. The iPhone 8 is one of the few smartphones capable of this – many full-fledged SLR cameras are not. The iPhone 8 can also record excellent slow-motion video at 240 frames per second with a 1080p resolution. You can also customise your iPhone’s camera settings, go to Settings > Camera.

Screen recording

The new iPhone 8 comes with native screen recording built-in – there’s no need for third-party apps. The feature is available in the iPhone’s Control Centre, which you can access by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. The screen recording icon is not in the Control Centre by default, but you can add it by going to the iPhone’s settings. You can add the screen recording function to the Control Centre as follows: Settings > Control Centre > Screen Recording.

Touch ID is faster than Face ID

Touch ID is used to unlock the device and pay for goods via Apple Pay, which is a known, proven entity. Apple says Touch ID is less prone to being tricked and can work in most situations where you think it wouldn’t. Touch ID is also comfortable to use, works almost instantaneously, and doesn’t require you physically look at the phone. Face ID has a ton of potential, but Touch ID is still the gold standard.

Wireless Charging

Once upon a time, Apple said it was unclear how much convenience wireless charging actually added. Rather than having to reach for and find the end of a Lightning cable, and fumble with getting it into the Lightning port, you can simply put your iPhone 8 down on the pad and it’ll start charging.

The iPhone 8 is a top of the line handset, the battery life is decent, the camera has improved and the addition of wireless charging adds convenience.

The iPhone 8 has remained small, compact, powerful and will deliver the ideal phone experience for many.

Very pleased with my purchase

Purchased a phone from these guys a few years ago and was completely satisfied then so when it came to my latest requirement I thought I would return. The phone I wanted was out of stock for a few months but I was in no rush so I waited until one became available. I received it a few days ago and am completely happy with it. The condition is exactly as described, in fact it’s better than that in my opinion. Well done chaps, keep up the good work, I will certainly recommend you if someone should ask.

Decent price delivered on time BUT when the iphone microphone was erratic I contacted Used Mobiles 4 U to arrange a replacement or refund. This is when they showed their excellence. Arranged return for MY convenience and sent through a postage QR for my ease. A real pleasure doing business with them – and I’m likely to again. Oh, and by the way, the new (used) phone works great…
