iPhone 8 Plus review
Conclusion OUR VERDICT 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.
Apple iPhone 8 Plus
- 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.
- Dated design. Lacks some of the extra iPhone X camera features. Large body makes it hard to hold.
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.
Apple iPhone 8 Plus
- Trådlös laddning
- Stora skärmramar
- Ingen inkluderad snabbladdare
- Ingen hörlursport
- iPhone 8 Plus är Apples mest kompletta smartphone
någonsin. Med en bra skärm, utmärkt batteritid,
grym kamera, bra högtalare, vattentät design och
riktigt snabb processor har iPhone 8 Plus det
mesta. Den har till och med stöd för trådlös
laddning och snabbladdning. Det är bara synd att
det inte ingår någon snabbladdare i lådan. Det
är också lite synd att iPhone 8 Plus har ett
stort problem, bokstavligt talat. Den har en fyra
generationer gammal design. Runt skärmen sitter
onödigt breda ramar. Det gör hela telefonen
stor, klumpig och svår att hålla. Med glas på
både framsidan och baksidan kan det också bli
lite extra tråkigt när greppet sviker. I
slutänden är det ändå imponerande att se vad
iPhone 8 Plus kan erbjuda och för dig som inte
tycker att storleken är ett problem, är iPhone 8
Plus Apples bästa iPhone hittills.
Apple iPhone 8 Plus
- Dual cameras
- Super-fast processor
- Wireless charging
- Not the fastest LTE connections
- Still a relatively low-res screen with big bezel for this price category
The iPhone 8 Plus may promise better augmented reality experiences than its smaller counterpart thanks to its dual cameras.
Apple iPhone 8 Plus review: Strong and steady
- Power and speed that's second-to-none
- Wireless charging is useful
- Fast charging is finally here
- Great cameras when used properly
- Attractive tweaked design
- Still very large (especially width)
- Portrait Lighting can be hit and miss
- IPhone X a hard proposition to ignore
- Glass design likely more prone to accidents
Conclusion As a successor to the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 8 Plus is a logical step-up that delivers a faster experience in a new and somewhat improved shell. Wireless charging, improved cameras and the True Tone screen for HDR Netflix content are all positive new features.None of which, however, are necessarily drop-everything-and-upgrade features. Despite its 8 Plus name, ultimately this iPhone could be seen as a "7S Plus". And with the iPhone X launched, we're half surprised that wasn't the applied naming convention.And that's the rub: we can't mention the 8 Plus without mentioning the lure of the iPhone X. Many people seem unaware the 8 Plus exists, often referring to "the new iPhone" from Apple's keynote. That's the true next-level device, which changes this year's iPhone proposition.Overall, the iPhone 8 Plus is Apple's everyman phone. It's the perfect big phone for the masses; for the people who don't need a future-facing face-reading smartphone; for those who want that large scale familiarity and known strengths that will get the job done. For those people, the iPhone 8 Plus delivers in droves.Alternatives to considerPocket-lintApple iPhone XThe pricier, more feature-packed iPhone X is the top-of-the-tree Apple smartphone proposition.

It's got a larger screen than the iPhone, and is noticeably taller, but those slim bezels mean it's much smaller than it could be if it followed Apple's bezel-heavy design approach with the 8 Plus.

iPhone 8 Plus review
Conclusion The iPhone 8 Plus is a hard phone to recommend. Sure, it's powerful, but so is every other flagship - and with a dated design and huge body, the 8 Plus is lagging behind. Throw in the fact that the wireless charging is slow, the fast wired charging costs you extra, and flagship camera feature Portrait Lighting just doesn't work well enough yet, and the 8 Plus is a tough sell. If you're coming from an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus there's not much to justify the upgrade - though moving from a 6 or 6s is more understandable. And if you're currently an Android user, you'll find phones that are just as fast, with modern designs, for far less money in the Android ecosystem. It's just hard to see the argument for spending £799/$799 on a phone this big in 2017, especially with the smaller-bodied iPhone X now in the line up. This one's for big-handed Apple devotees only.
Inget betygApple iPhone 8 Plus smartphone
- Design is getting long in the tooth now being used for the fourth year in a row

- No microSD slot
- iTunes is still required for manual music upload
- No fast charger provided in the box (and the optional one is expensive)
- Video camera still recording mono audio only
