Apple iPhone 8 Plus Smartphone Review

 

Big sibling, small improvement. As with its smaller sibling, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus does not have many new features. We get a slightly revised chassis, now with a glass rear panel, as well as the new A11 chip. However, small optimizations improve the...

True-Tone display ; fast SoC ; great camera ; accurate GPS ; Bluetooth 5.0 ; high Wi-Fi performance ; many LTE bands ; water and dust protection ; high build quality ...

... but big and heavy ; storage cannot be expanded ; only 12 months warranty ; no stereo jack ; only average speakers ; display resolution could be higher ; heavier than the predecessor ; very limited NFC functionality

The iPhone 8 Plus offers slightly more than its smaller sibling. We are not only talking about the pure weight, which is substantial at more than 200 grams (~7 oz), but mainly the dual-camera. The display also features more pixels and you get 1 GB more...

Apple iPhone 8 Plus

 

The iPhone 8 Plus may promise better augmented reality experiences than its smaller counterpart thanks to its dual cameras, making it the one you should buy.

Super-fast processor. Dual cameras. Wireless charging.

Not the fastest LTE connections. Still a relatively low-res screen with a big bezel for the price.

The iPhone 8 Plus is ready for the future, which makes it our favorite iPhone so far—but then again, we haven't tested the iPhone X yet.

iPhone 8 Plus review

 

The iPhone 8 Plus' updates don't warrant a full number bump, but they're welcome improvements that make it another great iPhone.

Stellar performance ; Great camera, fun Portrait Mode features ; Wireless charging works well ; Great display ; Daylong battery

Expensive ; Boring, dated front design ; No headphone jack

The iPhone 8 Plus should really be called the iPhone 7S Plus. Its updates don’t warrant a full number bump, but they’re welcome improvements that make the 8 Plus another great iPhone.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus review

 

Apple's fanciest iPhone isn't here yet. But the innards of that fancy iPhone X already exist -- mostly, anyway -- inside a phone you can get right now: the iPhone 8 Plus.

Fantastic dual-lens camera shoots better than ever with improved portrait mode. Adds wireless charging. Lightning-fast speed. Starts at 64GB.

Dated design. Most competing Android phones have even larger screens. Upcoming iPhone X could be a more compelling choice.

The iPhone 8 Plus is a superlative phone with a spectacular camera, but wait for the upcoming iPhone X before buying: it promises to fold all of the key features of the 8 Plus into a smaller, sexier package.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus Review

 

So who should be buying an iPhone Plus this year? Well, let's take a look at what you can expect from the phone's hardware, and Apple's latest software, as we start breaking things down and answering that question.

Monumental battery life ; Wireless charging ; Dual-camera improvements ; Stunningly fast performance ; Tons of storage space

Glass back feels damage-prone ; Portrait lighting mode needs more fine-tuning ; No longer feels like Apple's best iPhone

Review: Apple iPhone 8 Plus

 

The iPhone 8 Plus is a monster of a device that pleases and disappoints at the same time. While new features, such as wireless charging and portrait photography, are great additions, the huge footprint and outdated display hold it back. Here is...

The Apple iPhone 8 Plus leaves me with mixed feelings. It's a well-made piece of hardware assembled from the finest materials, but the design is old, boring, and dated. The huge bezels get on my nerves, which is all I need to convince me that the...

Apple iPhone 8 Plus Review

 

Despite its all-glass design, the iPhone 8 Plus doesn't look or feel very different from its predecessor, the iPhone 7 Plus. Its camera quality is still the best on the market, though not noticeably better than the 7. However, its high-performing and...

The phone’s new six-core processor outperformed all others by a significant margin in benchmark tests.

It doesn’t have a standard audio jack.

On the surface, the iPhone 8 Plus isn't much different from the iPhone 7 Plus, but its new A11 Bionic processor makes it the best performing smartphone on the market.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus Review: Record-Breaking Speed, Samsung-Beating Cameras

 

The $699 iPhone 8 and $799 iPhone 8 Plus represent a leap forward in performance and camera quality, but I wish they came in packages that looked and felt more “new.” That's why I'm personally waiting for the $999 iPhone X, which also adds Face ID and...

Fastest phone ever (by a lot) ; Superior dual cameras with new Portrait Mode lighting ; Excellent battery life ; Immersive AR apps ; Wireless charging ; Better speakers ; Crazy powerful for its size ; Killer camera ; Above-average battery life ; Fairly...

Bezels look dated ; Fast wired charging costs extra ; Screen small and still low-res ; Too much bezel ; Fast wired charging costs extra

The iPhone 8 Plus backs up its blazing speed and big screen with improved dual cameras and long battery life, making it a better choice than the regular iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 is well worth it if you prefer a smaller phone, offering fantastic...
