Apple iPhone 8 Plus Specifications Review
Design & Display
This is a big phone. You will only be able to achieve one handed use of you have big hands. Although this phone comes with a 5.5 inches screen, it is bigger than many phones with screens of a similar size. The bezels at the bottom and at the top of the display are largely to blame for iPhone 8 Plus’ size.
It is disappointing that Apple decided to stick to same design used for iPhone 6, 7, 7S and 8. That aside, the iPhone 8 Plus back is made from glass. Apple says that this is the most durable glass ever. This glass not only enhances the look of the phone, it also makes it feel premium. The glass also makes it easier for the user to have a comfortable grip.
The iPhone 8 Plus is heavier than most similar sized phone. At 202 grams, this phone is even heavier than the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It has a smaller screen but it is larger than the Galaxy Note 8 which has a 6.3 inches display. The glass curves slightly at its edges and blends very well with the metal. Just like the Iphone 7 Plus, this smartphone is water resistant (IP67 rating).
This phone comes in several colors: Gold hue, Space Gray and silver.
iPhone 8 Plus’ 5.5 inches 1080p IPS LCD is awesome. Like its smaller brother, the iPhone 8, this phone benefits from Apple’s True Tone Technology. This tech alters the color temperature of the screen depending on the surrounding environment. This may sound minor but its effect is significant.
Hardware, Software & Performance
This iPhone is powered by A11 Bionic processor. This is the fasted processor we have seen from Apple so far. This processor puts Qualcomm Snapdragon processor used in other high end phones to shame. It is coupled with 3GB of RAM. You get either 264GB or 64GB internal storage space. Keep in mind the fact that iPhones don’t come with microSD slots. That is why it is very important to make the right choice. This phone on runs iOS 11 out-of-the box.
This smartphone comes with 12MP dual cameras on the back side. Like its predecessor, one of these cameras has an optically stabilized f/1.8 aperture. The other camera has an f/2.8 aperture that allows 2x zoom without sacrificing the quality of the images. Images captured by this smartphone have amazing detail and vibrant colors.
The Iphone 8 plus has a smaller battery than the iphone 7 Plus. It comes with a 2691mAh battery. However, these two phones have the almost the same battery life thanks to A11 Bionic chip power efficiency.
