Specs of the Refurbished iPhone 8

The refurbished iPhone 8 from UR.co.uk is perfect for anyone desiring an entry-level phone.

Although slightly outdated compared to the current Apple devices, the iPhone 8 offers some great ever-green features for those wanting to tip their toes in the Apple ecosystem.

These will be investigated further within the article, but for easy viewing, cast your eyes on the specs below to find out some basic information about this nifty device.

Feature Specification
Display 4.7-inch Retina HD Display with 1334x750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi
Camera System 12MP main camera with a 7MP front camera
Processing Power A11 Bionic Chip
Storage Size 64GB, 256GB

What To Expect with the Refurbished iPhone 8


A Trusty Display

Anyone reminiscing about the times of smaller phones will adore the iPhone 8.

The Apple iPhone 8 boasts a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with a resolution of 1334x750 at 326 ppi - just small enough to slide in your pocket with ease without affecting the overall functionality or your ability to enjoy high-quality visuals on the go.

With this one, you won't receive the Always-On technology or the Dynamic Island function like more recent generations. Still, it does features True Tone technology, designed to adapt its screen brightness to your local surroundings to provide bright and vivid imagery without being overpowering.

This is complemented by the new colour filter, increasing accessibility by changing the screen's hues to ensure a better viewing experience for those with colour blindness or visual impairments.

Again, this device doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a refurbished iPhone 15 Pro. However, this one is your best choice for those who want an affordable Apple iPhone with great specs.

Sturdy, Reliable Design

Design-wise, the iPhone 8 is remarkably similar to the refurbished iPhone X, minus the slightly larger price tag.

The iPhone measures 67.3 x 138.4 x 7.9 mm and has a new glass rear that enables easy wireless charging - a functionality new to Apple iPhones at the time of its release.

It features slightly larger bezels compared to more recent devices, and it has the old-school fingerprint scanner located at the bottom of the phone. This scanner prioritises quick access without perfect positioning to capture your face - an aspect that can be annoying in modern facial scanners.

The iPhone 8 is also just 148 grams, making it feel lightweight and ergonomically pleasing when sat in your hand.

Camera System of the iPhone 8

On the back, you have a more than satisfactory 12MP main camera with an  83% faster sensor , providing better performance in low-light conditions than its predecessor, the iPhone 7. Read more here.

Additionally, you benefit from optical image stabilisation, designed to minimise blur in photos and videos. This feature was predominantly available only in high-end smartphones when the Apple iPhone 8 was released.

And if you want to take selfies, the 7MP front camera has you covered, delivering excellent selfies worthy of any social media post.

Receive a Great Package at UR.co.uk

At UR.co.uk, all our refurbished iPhone 8s undergo a comprehensive check to ensure the device works like new before it arrives at your door.

These checks ensure they work as originally intended, unlike 'used' devices, which undergo minimal to zero inspections before reselling.

You also gain a complete package to ensure you start your new tech journey in style. Some of these extra bonuses include:

  • 12-Month FREE Insurance:  All our iPhones come with 12 months FREE insurance to protect them from various unfortunate circumstances, including accidental damage, theft, and more.

  • FREE Delivery:  Your phone will also come with FREE delivery, whether it's one of our refurbished iPhone 8 deals or another phone altogether.

  • Various Payment Options:  Want to pay monthly for your device? We've got you covered. We also offer options that allow you to pay for the device over a longer period, making it accessible to all.

Plus, we also plant a tree for every device we resell as part of our commitment to sustainability.
