Apple iPhone 8 Plus Review

Rating: 7.5.

It’s that time of the year again – Apple’s firmly established yearly release cycle means today we assess the iPhone 8 Plus. The current flagship, though due to be usurped by the iPhone X very soon, the 8 Plus boasts a new A11 Bionic chip, a dual-camera set up plus a new glass back. Is this phone worth its steep £799+ asking price?

At a glance, you would be forgiven for thinking that nothing has changed from the iPhone 7 Plus to the new iPhone 8 Plus. From a design perspective, that is especially the case – the only major difference is the addition of a glass panel on the back of the phone, instead of Apple’s familiar aluminium construction. Does this mean the iPhone 8 Plus isn’t worth a purchase? Let’s find out.

    iPhone X is the cool looking one, this is basically the iPhone 6 with hardware upgrades – same shape etc. Its a 3 year old design, looked quite dated in 2014 IMO

    Hm, so 800 for old reliable or 1200 for flagship. Yeah, this is why I don’t buy high end phones. Insanely expensive considering what you get.
