I upgraded from my old 6S to the 8, and it feels incredible. iPhone 8 is a beast, with great battery life (subjective), packed with A11, wireless charging, better camera, 4K 60fps, and touch id! Yes touch id for those who wants them rather than face id. I think it is safe to say that Apple will support the phone for 4-5 years later, so yeah I hope it answer your question.

I got my 8 last October and I really enjoy it. I think it’s the perfect size not too big or small. Also I couldn’t justify spending $1000 on a phone that will be outdated in a couple of years.

I’m loving this phone. I considered the 8+ for the display but ultimately can’t deal with a huge phone.The iPhone 8 silver is what I ended up with. It’s a major throwback to the all white iPhone 4. The build quality is superb. Battery life is damn impressive I only have to charge my phone once a day. True Tone is also really cool it makes reading content on all white backgrounds easier on the eyes.

I also moved from a 6s to an 8 and am very happy. Solid upgrade and I don’t have to learn the X interface.

I was deciding between 256 8 or the 64 8 plus. I went with the 8 plus and couldn’t be happier. Portrait mode is legitimately my favorite thing about the phone. With icloud storage, the lower storage isn’t really a problem. I went from a 6 too, its such an upgrade.
