    I bought an iphone 8plus this day, last month, just right before Luna NY in my country, big gift for myself, this cost more than 1000$ here. I have my exps as ipad user before, my Air 1 still working totally fine after years so i decided to switch to iPhone from my SS Note 5 . And then, i must say, all of my hope turn out as disappointed.

    8plus is a beautiful phone, i can't deny. But my own have ALOT of basic-ridiculous troubles/problems thats shouldn't happens on an 1000$ phone. i will list down some here, i'm current on the newest ios, 11.2.6

    1. The biggest disappointed. is the cracking / noises/ static or whatever it called. Its happening every f--king where and honestly, its destroy my mood everyday. i mean, like, you turn on the music. Its CRACK. you turn on youtube. Its CRACK. And just happen last minutes. Its now cracking during phone calls. On ios 11.2.6. Yuck.

    2. The big gap bettween aluminum frame and front / back glass. i mean, my own totally not right in the center. they were deviates to right side, i just put a money between the gap, and its in.

    3. IOS 11 is a hot mess. and still a hot mess. Siri force stop my phone sometime. " She " not even listen to me, just turn the screen to black for 2-3sec and turn on with lagging.

    Anw, i don't know what to do with my first iphone now. Re-sell it or whatever. I still hope with ios 12 those problems above will be fixed like Apple said " Software problems ". Because its not, man, my tough luck.

    And sorry if my terrible English make you feel uncomfortable.

    #1 is legit. I’ve been more than vocal about it.

    #2 if truly a gap ask for a replacement.

    #3 iOS 11 has been rough but overall it’s been a stable OS with less issues than competitors IMO.

    On the speaker clipping issue, I would push for a replacement and see what happens. Is this what you are referring to?

    Launch Day 8Plus here.

    No speaker crackling, no matter how high or low the volume. No gaps either. Lastly, never had the problem with Siri as you are describing. I have minor annoyances with iOS 11, but it is still fully functional.

    If you noticed the gap or speaker issue within the first 14 days, you should have said something then. It would have been much easier to get a replacement. But the issues you describe seem to be mainly hardware related issues. A new phone should solve the problems.

    I also have a pre-ordered (first time ever) iPhone 8+. No crackling for me either. Siri hasn't ever lagged for me but I usually have it off anyway because I never use it.

    iOS 11 was horrid on my 6s+ when it first came out - slow as all get out. Eventually it got faster with subsequent releases. I hear iOS 12 will focus on performance - yay.

    Like Mlrollin91 said - Apple is usually really good at replacing hardware defective iPhones.

    I’m jealous of the non-crackling (speaker clipping) iPhones. All five I have had suffered.

    You'll need to call AppleCare.

    I heard that iOS 11.3 was a lot better. Might jump over to the beta program and try that out.

    Same here shifted to 8 Plus from X recently and couldn't be more happy. Planning to upgrade to X Plus this Fall.

    Do you sold your iPhone 6S Plus.

    Yes. I’ve tried them all. 11.3 beta has been nice though.
