iPhone 8 Plus


An iPhone 7S Plus in all but name. iPhone 8 Plus.

Excellent, versatile camera ; Great screen ; Super speakers ; Wireless charging is nice to have

Very heavy ; Boring design ; No OIS on secondary camera ; Would have liked the screen to be OLED

Apple was very coy about battery life when it announced both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, probably because both of these handsets actually include smaller cells than last year’s models. That’s worrying for the iPhone 8, but I was impressed by the...

iPhone 8 Plus review: are you really sure you want that iPhone X?


Not Apple's greatest leap, but this is still a superb telephone

Unbelievably fast ; Excellent camera ; Wireless charging is welcome

Looking aged versus rivals ; No mobile HDR ; The iPhone X is coming

Apple iPhone 8 Plus review


A few small upgrades have made a big difference...

Great screen ; Superb dual-lens cameras ; Solid performance ; Good build quality ; Strong battery life

Large, dated design ; No headphone jack

Small upgrades can make a big difference, and Apple’s largest phone now leads the pack

Apple iPhone 8 Plus review


Small upgrades go a long way, as the iPhone 8 Plus steps forward as the leader of the 8 family

Bright, sharp screen ; Class-leading cameras ; Lightning fast performance ; Top build quality ; Solid battery life

Bulky, dated design ; Expensive ; Lack of headphone jack still annoying

With its superb camera, larger screen and better battery life, the 8 Plus is the iPhone to buy right now

Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus hands-on review


Apple's less expensive new blowers refuse to be overshadowed by the iPhone X

iPhone 8 Plus review


The iPhone 8 Plus remains a solid option in the iPhone ecosystem despite seeing some competition since it launched. Since this review was originally published, we've added comparisons to some of the alternative phones you might be considering. Plus...

Fast and wireless charging is useful Glass back feels premium Dual camera is powerful

Dated design No mobile HDR Battery life average

A solid iPhone, but a clear evolution from previous Plus models. Compared to the iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone 11 Pro Max it's unexciting, but it offers the traditional home button and a far better experience over the smaller iPhone 8.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus review: Price reduction following Apple's autumn keynote


More of the same from Apple – just a little better in most departments and a little more expensive, too

Great cameras ; Wireless charging ; Incredibly fast

Same old iPhone design ; Expensive ; Exceedingly heavy

The iPhone 8 Plus is one of the best phones Apple has ever produced, and for Apple diehards, it offers the most bang per buck of the new range. But if you’re going to spend big on an Apple smartphone, wouldn’t you rather wait for the iPhone X?

Apple iPhone 8 Plus Review: A better choice than the X?


While the iPhone X is a true evolution of Apple's smartphone, the iPhone 8 Plus is a more straightforward 2017 update of last year's 7...

Powerhouse ; Sleek new design ; Wireless charging ; Smart integrated software

No HDR display ; Still pricey

A lot of people might be holding out for the iPhone X before considering an upgrade, which is only going to hurt early sales of the 8 Plus model. However, a lack of HDR support aside, this is still a solid premium handset that impresses in pretty much...

Apple iPhone 8 Plus review: Fast but far from inspirational


Not a particularly exciting upgrade, or an essential one, but the iPhone 8 Plus is still a very fine phone

The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is a decent phone. Its battery life is good, the cameras are (still) impressive and wireless charging is a nice touch even if it does come years behind its Android rivals. But it’s not the best you can buy.
