Apple iPhone 8 Plus
Even though Apple has some significant competition when it comes to dominating the smartphone industry, they are still undeniably one of the true giants of the mobile phone world, and with their creativity and innovation, it is easy to understand why. They have an enormous following of loyal followers across the globe, who stir themselves into a frenzy each and every time a new iPhone is announced.
With the announcement of a new iPhone release in 2017, ten years after the very first iPhone was launched, we knew that something exciting was on the way to commemorate such an occasion, and so when the iPhone X was announced everyone was excited to hear about what this premium edition from Apple would be capable of.
Because of this exciting launch, the launch of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus suddenly became somewhat less exciting, and there’s no doubt that they were, as a result, possibly the most understated iPhone launch ever, despite the fact that they were met with rave reviews from critics and users alike.
The iPhone 8 Plus, in particular, got some impressive reviews, and with that in mind, we have to say it is a fantastic smartphone that certainly shouldn’t be overlooked when you’re shopping for your next handset.
iPhone 8 Plus Design & Screen
The iPhone 8 Plus takes a distinct departure from the usual iPhone design with an all-glass build that looks expensive and classy. It still features the elegant curves and rounded corners that we are used to seeing on an iPhone, and despite its larger size, it feels light and surprisingly compact when you’re on the move.
The build of the phone features an aerospace grade aluminium band that is perfectly colour matched to the rest of the handset, which is available in four stunning colour options: space grey, silver, gold and the limited edition vibrant red as part of Apple’s PROJECT(RED) charity collaboration.
Like most Plus models, it is difficult to use with just one hand, however, if you’re a seasoned iPhone Plus user then this won’t be an issue for you.
The display on the iPhone 8 Plus features the same Retina HD technology as its smaller sibling, the difference being that the iPhone 8 Plus has a much bigger 5.5 inches of screen to put it in. It also features TrueTone technology so that everything looks as natural as possible, with colours looking vibrant and bright, yet realistic.
TrueTone technology also means that the iPhone 8 Plus automatically adjusts its screen based on the lighting conditions around you. So whether you’re watching a video, reading an eBook or looking over some important emails, you can view your content in exceptional quality.
iPhone 8 Plus Audio
The aforementioned screen on the iPhone 8 Plus was certainly one of the best that we saw in 2017, and thankfully the audio quality reflects and compliments this fact perfectly.
By now we’ve accepted the fact the iPhone won’t feature any support for hi-resolution music, but still, we can’t find any real fault the sound quality with this handset. The iPhone 8 Plus deals with all musical instruments well, delivering an opulent and rich listening experience that can't be beaten; if you’re a music buff then the iPhone 8 Plus will be the perfect choice for you.
As expected there’s no headphone jack on the iPhone 8 Plus, following Apple’s controversial decision to eliminate it from their handsets with the iPhone 7. This means that in order to listen to your tunes you do need to invest in a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones or use the charging port to plug in a regular set of headphones. We’re aware that some people still aren’t happy about a missing headphone jack, but we have to admit that we think it will soon become the norm as more and more smartphone manufacturers seem to be following in Apple’s footsteps.
iPhone 8 Camera
The camera setup on the iPhone 8 Plus really is one of the standout successes of the handsets.
While it’s not massively different from the setup found on the iPhone 7 Plus, there are some subtle changes. Like the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 8 Plus features a dual 12MP camera with a wide angle and telephoto lens. The difference lies in the fact that with the newer iPhone handset we get a larger, faster sensor which means an improved performance in low-lighting, as well as an improved colour filter and deeper pixels. All of this combines to deliver photographs that feature sharper details and vivid colours.
One of the most talked about camera features on the iPhone 7 Plus was the new and innovative Portrait Mode. You’ll be glad to hear that this is still a feature on the iPhone 8 Plus, but Apple has made it even better so that the Bokeh effect looks more natural and overall portraits have much more impact than before.
iPhone 8 Features & Performance
If you’ve been debating whether to go for the iPhone 8 Plus of the iPhone 8, then its worth knowing that the iPhone 8 Plus features much of the same internal hardware, despite the lower price.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus both run on the Apple A11 chip, which Apple has claimed is the most powerful chip ever. The manufacturer often receives high praise for their processors, and it's no wonder; the iPhone 8 Plus delivers an extremely fast smartphone experience which has very little if any, delay.
The iPhone 8 Plus of course features the classic Apple interface that we’re used to seeing on the iPhone, and it's as easy to get to grips with as ever. So whether you’re a seasoned iPhone pro or a complete beginner, we’re sure you’ll have no problem using your new iPhone.
Its no secret that the Plus models of the iPhone series often have the most impressive battery lives, and the 8 Plus is no exception. Even if you are constantly attached to your smartphone, you should have some juice left over at the end of the day.
When you do find yourself having to give your handset a boost, you can do so with ease thanks to wireless charging, and there’s also the ability to power up to 50% in around 30 minutes thanks to Fast Charging. Neither of these things is essential, but they certainly make life a little easier.
The iPhone 8 Plus is a fantastic choice for anyone on the hunt for the latest high-end smartphone. Even though it was somewhat overshadowed by the release of the iPhone X, it shouldn’t be overlooked.
Not only is it beautifully designed, but it also features the same innovative technology that you’ll find in the more expensive iPhone X.
The dual camera setup with improved Portrait Mode deliver photos of an extremely high standard.
The A11 chip gives users a smartphone experience that is super speedy and ultra-responsive, and while the battery life is much better than previous models, we still really appreciated the ability to charge the phone wirelessly.
