The iPhone X got all the headlines but in many ways the iPhone 8 Plus is a more appealing upgrade.
You get many of the X's features: wireless charging (thanks to the glass back), which is convenient and fun, albeit a little slower than charging with the bundled 5W wired charger; the A11 Bionic chip, which is absurdly fast, and makes this device a mobile gaming beast; Portrait Lighting, a spotty and inconsistent software feature, but one that sometimes produces highly flattering, professional shots with little effort.
And you don't lose the Home button, which means you don't need to relearn the interface and you can carry on using Touch ID - and it's cheaper.Read more

Seriously, some people don't want their go-to devices to change and feel different. And I mean it sincerely: if you're that person, then the iPhone 8 Plus is the best choice. It's every bit the performance beast of the iPhone X, and in some ways (like battery) it comes out on top. Every app in Apple's App Store works perfectly on the 8 Plus screen, which isn't the case yet with iPhone X. And there's no new interface to learn.
That being said, the iPhone X is the best iPhone... if you can afford it, and you like the feel of something new. Maybe you don't. Maybe you want a screen for reading and watching videos that feels as big as possible. Maybe you think of your phone as a mini tablet.
If that's you, the 8 Plus will probably make you happiest. It's the less exciting pick, but a fine safety pick for a workhorse phone. Just get ready for an iPhone future where more models end up looking like X.
The Good Fantastic dual-lens camera shoots better than ever with improved portrait mode. Adds wireless charging. Lightning-fast speed. Starts at 64GB. Best battery life in current iPhone line.
The Bad Dated design. Lacks some of the extra iPhone X camera features. Large body makes it hard to hold.
The Bottom Line The iPhone 8 Plus is a great phone with a spectacular camera that offers a lot of what iPhone X has under the hood, but in a lot less exciting body.Read more

The iPhone 8 Plus is a great phone – there’s no doubt about that. It’s a better phone that anything Apple has produced before, and it’s, well, just done in a very Apple way.
That’s not fawning over the brand, it’s a nod to the effort that Apple puts into making sure its phones just work, and in a way that adds in flourishes that impress.
Whether that’s a subtle haptic double buzz when pressing the shutter on the camera, or being able to ‘feel’ the numbers clicking when selecting the time on the alarm, it’s those little delights that… delight.
The glass back on the new iPhone Plus is probably the most noticeable change, to enable wireless charging – it’s a different look, and if the drops we inadvertently subjected the phone to are anything to go by, it’s pretty robust.
The wireless charging is a handy addition, but it’s not earth-shattering… you’ll enjoy it if you’ve got a pad, but it’s not as rapid as connecting a lead.
The camera enhancements are subtle, but impressive, as is the speed boost the A11 Bionic chip offers – you won’t notice much out of the box, but the little extras it brings do offer something different.
The Portrait Lighting mode is a nice upgrade from Apple, especially in decent light, and a genuine highlight over the iPhone 7 Plus.
Battery life has sadly not taken the leap forward we’re desperate to see from Apple – if you’ve always lived within the iPhone ecosystem you’ll be pleased with the battery performance on offer, but there’s still the feeling that more could be done here.
In short, the iPhone 8 Plus is a great phone. Based on the spec list, it’s too expensive, but it’s filled with the little touches Apple is known for that smooth the smartphone experience to such a degree that you’ll feel glad you paid more.
The thing is, the presence of the iPhone X renders the 8 Plus unexciting. It's an old design with the same features as before, just a bit more refined again. The iPhone X is exciting, the 8 Plus just more of the same.Read more
