Continuity mistake: When Cypher is explaining what brought her to Cuba, she is looking at Dom. Camera changes and now she is facing away from Dom. (00:13:20)

Other mistake: When the team get off the sub they leave the hatch open. That can only be closed manually, so the sub would have simply sunk within a few minutes of submerging.

Plot hole: Dom arrives in New York at the same time as Hobbs and his team. Dom meets up with Shaw's mum and then proceeds to steal the nuclear codes. Meanwhile at the same time, Hobbs and the team arrive at their secret hideout and start preparing the cars. The time frame isn't the same - Hobbs and co. simply haven't got the time.

Dom crosses the bridge as Hobbs and Co go underneath then Dom stops to change the spark plug a cover to have his pre arranged meeting with Shaw's mum, he then proceeds to do the heist, there is no time lapse.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, the Russian chase vehicle fires a grenade at Hobbs' vehicle. The tube on the top far right is used and can be seen open. When that same vehicle goes for the second shot at Hobbs, the tube that was used before is unused now. When Dom hits the vehicle shortly after that there is a very close shot that shows that despite having just fired another round the array of tubes is again unused. (01:51:05 - 01:51:55)

That is correct. As you can see different ones being destroyed during the chase.

Roman Pearce: Why are they shooting at me?
Tej Parker: I don't know. Maybe because you're in a orange Lamborghini.
Roman Pearce: Shut up, Tej.

Question: Is it safe to say that the Shaw brothers were good guys before Cipher got involved? Is it also safe to say that Deckard was a good guy too until he needed to get revenge on Dom and the team?

Answer: Well, we know that Owen Shaw was once an SAS soldier. Deckard Shaw has a file in this movie that reveals he saved a team he was part of and saved some hostages in the past. When Deckard Shaw refused to do the job Cypher wanted him to do in Furious 6 to steal the nightshade device, Cypher then went after Owen Shaw and convinced him to do the job. Cypher is the true mastermind behind everything that has happened in Furious 6, 7 and 8. So, maybe the Shaw brothers were good guys at a time before Cypher came along.
