Here are some screenshots of my battery usage from the past year or so. I am pretty sure I’ve had my iPhone 8 since October 1 but I can’t guarantee it. I’ve been using it on an average basis going through a full battery cycle per day. Battery life is about what I’d expect it to be considering it’s current age and use. Hope this helps and good luck with your phone search!

Great battery life here also on my iPhone 8. Not sure I would trust buying a phone from eBay though. Too many bad characters on there selling phones. If possible buy a new one from Apple or maybe go to Apple's refurbished site and see if you can find an 8 there. Might cost you more but you'll know that you'll get a phone that works.

No complaints at all regarding battery life on the iPhone 8. It’s a solid phone and is underrated in my opinion. And as far as where to buy, check swappa.com. I bought a new in box iPhone 8 from there in January.
