“Apple is known to support its products for a long time, so we expect the iPhone 8 Plus to last four to five years, if not more. Expect to continue getting software updates for a similar length of time. Should you buy it? Yes. If you don’t want to spend $1,000 on the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 Plus is the next best thing.”
“The iPhone 8 Plus shares a powerful foundation with the iPhone 8, but a few features give it a distinct advantage over its little brother. Its 12-megapixel dual camera is one of the best we’ve used, and its bigger battery means it’ll stick around longer on a charge than the iPhone 8. While it’s easily the best big phone Apple has ever made, its slightly longer, slightly heavier body make it feel a little unwieldy compared to some of its biggest rivals.”
“If you’re already locked into Apple’s ecosystem, though, and you’re moving up from an iPhone 6 or 6s, the iPhone 8 Plus is the model. The main issue, and it’s the same one that raises its head every year, is that you have to switch to Android to get a better phone. If you’re willing to do so, the obvious competitor to the 8 Plus is the Galaxy Note 8.”
“iPhone 7 Plus owners might not feel the need to upgrade, but users of the 6s and before will see big differences in features and performance. The looming iPhone X may well have quietened the usual Apple hysteria for the iPhone 8 family, but don’t let that fool you: the iPhone 8 Plus is fully deserving of five-star fanfare.”
