iPhone 8 Plus are smartphones designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. They were announced on September 12, 2017, alongside the higher-end iPhone X, at the Steves. Jobs Theatre in the Apple Park campus, and were released on September 22, 2017, succeeding iPhone7 & iPhone7 Plus
The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is a very powerful phone and stands out for what I think is the best smartphone camera money can buy. If there is one issue with the phone, it is the battery. No, it is not that the battery is bad. It is just that it should have been better. While Apple says the phone is doing much more than before, but still has the same battery life, the way I would look at it is that you need to reach for the charger by the end of the working day if you use the phone like you are supposed to. I managed to squeeze out 12 hours by being careful of what I do and also by minimizing the screen brightness. Still, this should not be a choice I have to make with a premium smartphone, any premium smartphone.
The big change for the iPhone 8 Plus is that its back is made of glass, which inevitably makes it more fragile. Despite the glass being more grippy in the hand, and more slippy on the arm of a sofa, most will put it in a case – at which point it’s very difficult to tell that it’s a brand new model.
The iPhone 8 Plus has the same six-core A11 Bionic processor as its smaller sibling, but has an extra gigabyte of memory to help with multitasking. It performed similarly to the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 7 Plus before it in day-to-day activities.
Battery life is solid, lasting over 32 hours between charges on average – a increase of 5 hours on the iPhone 7 Plus – meaning that you’ll be able to make it to lunch time the next day if you forget to charge it overnight. That’s with hundreds of push notifications, 10 or so photos, a 90-minute burst of Netflix, a couple of short phone calls, a quick game and about 7 hours of listening to Spotify over Bluetooth earbuds.
The iPhone 8 Plus has two improved 12-megapixel cameras on the back, which both have physically larger sensors than last year’s iPhone 7 Plus on which Apple’s dual-camera system was introduced. The two cameras work together: one has a standard wide-angle f/1.8 lens (the same as fitted to the iPhone 8), the other has a slower f/2.8 lens with an effective two-times magnification compared to the standard lens.
