Guys,

Not sure it was wise decision to buy iPhone 8 (second hand) purchased on 09/10/2017. Do you think I need to sell it fast or keep it for an year or two. Please advice. Do you need pics or bill copy to evaluate?


Regards - Ram

I am still using the iPhone 7 I got over 1.5 years ago. I am not a power user and use phone only for calls, text, mails and whatsapp and the 7 with iOS 13 is perfectly fine for that usage. I will use it till Q1 next year and upgrade to the 11 as photography on the go is becoming important to me these days. You should try and use the 8 for 1 more year and try and upgrade to the iPhone 12 when it comes out.

The device owner is unknown to me, but the seller is partially known (cashify guy who repaired one of the old phones). Although I'm using the device, I'm new to iOS. I'm not sure how to measure or understand the battery stats it shows.

Yes, I have the bill. Yet again, I have n't validated/mapped any of the details mentioned in the bill against my device.

I'm such a untutored.

Go to setting > battery > battery health. See that the percentage is. Above 80% is good to go as per apple. Less then that, needs a replacement if you have problem with backup or if device is under warrenty and ifs free for you

Not exactly end of days. But once it drops to 80% or less, iOS may throttle the device. I got my current phone with 95%+ battery. After 25 months of using it, it's at 82%. Degradation from 87/88 to 82 was quite slow.

That's the holding capacity of your battery. I think it's good to go for 1 or 2 yrs depending on your usage. Keep it charge above 40 percent to and below 80 to 85 percentage most of the time. This will help your battery health to be maintained.

Use the slow charge if possible and also try to avoid direct sunlight on your iPhone for long time, making it heat. Charge without mobile cover i.e remove the mobile cover before charging.
