Intro - iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 Plus is Apple's succession to the iPhone 7, and was released on 22nd September, 2017, after being announced alongside the high-end iPhone X on 12th September. In terms of design, yes, the iPhone 8 Plus is similar to its predecessor.

The main design difference that separates the iPhone 7 from the iPhone 8 Plus is the addition of the glass back, something which hasn't been since the iPhone 4S.

Aside from the slight design variation, other notable changes from the iPhone 7 include the ability of wireless charging, a faster A11 processor and an improved camera and display.


Best features of the iPhone 8 Plus

The majority of the internal hardware on the iPhone 8 Plus is the same as that of the iPhone X.

The release of the iPhone 8 Plus was met with both praise and criticism. The fact that the phone has the ability for wireless charging and a much faster Apple A11 Bionic system-on-chip, was well received. The new chip features two cores that are 25% faster than the previous A10 chip, and four cores that are 70% faster than the A10 chip.

The iPhone 8 Plus is also the first to feature the new graphics processing unit, which is 30% faster than previous units.

They also offer the same level of performance of the A10 while only using half of the power.The display on the iPhone 8 Plus is also much improved over the previous generation of iPhone.

Although it retains the Retina HD display found in the iPhone 7, the display now features True Tone technology which automatically adjusts the screen based on surrounding ambient lighting.

The iPhone 8 Plus features a 12MP rear camera that is capable of capturing 4 K video at 24, 30 or 60 frames per second.


Trade it in and get a new one?

The most significant criticism of the iPhone 8 Plus was of the ageing design.

Despite the design being similar to that of the previous models of iPhone, the iPhone 8 Plus features a glass back instead of the complete aluminium housing which was found on the 6th and 7th generations of iPhone. The glass back enables the use of Qi-standard wireless charging.

And unlike the glass that was featured on the much older 4th generation of iPhone, the glass on the reverse of the iPhone 8 Plus has an internal laser-welded steel and copper structure, which is considerably more durable. The iPhone 8 Plus is also rated IP67 for water resistance and a design factor that Apple have been somewhat slower to implement than their competitors.

iPhone 8 Plus has quite a poor repairability score - scoring just 6 out of 10. The reason for this is largely due to the fact that an excessive amount of glue is used for the battery and for the glass on the back of the phone.

The iPhone 8 Plus was released with a choice of three colours -- silver, gold and Space Grey. In April 2018, Apple introduced a special edition version which was red with a black front. The 8th generation of iPhone is available in a choice of two storage capacities - 64GB and 256GB.

The newest iPhone to replace this if you want a direct comparison is probably iPhone 11 Pro.
