Apple iPhone 8 Plus Review

Score: 10.14/10

Apple iPhone 8 Plus is a top-notch cellphone launched a few years ago, featuring a high-tech 2.39 GHz Hexa-Core CPU, a huge 5.5-inches screen, and two cameras, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and a 7 mega-pixels front facing camera. We will get a better idea about this cellphone's wonders when we get into deeper details.

This phone construction combines Glass and Aluminum . Apple made this cellphoneavailable only in a lot of colors like gold, red, silver and space gray. This cellphone is only 6.24 inches long and 3.07 inches wide, but it is still able to fit a a 5.5 inches display. This cellphone is extremely thin and stilized, being just 0.3 inches thick. Apple appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 7.13 oz cellphone.

This phone includes a incredible 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) 5.5-inches screen, giving this phone a unique image quality.

This phone comes with an extremely powerful 2.39 GHz Hexa-Core processing unit, packed into the Apple A11 Bionic APL1W72 chip and a huge 3 GB RAM memory. This phone has a impressive 256 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't come with a slot for external memory cards, it is still enough to store tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without thinking about filling it.

This phone features two cameras, a 12 megapixels back camera and a 7 MP front camera. Its back camera lens has an aperture of 1.8 so it can take awesome pictures even in low-light conditions. It is capable of capturing videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 frames per second, and 1920x1080 Full HD slow-motion videos at 240 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also includes time lapse video and auto-focus.

The Apple iPhone 8 Plus has a 2691 mAh amazing Li - Ion non-removable battery, which is not really enough for a demanding phone like this. An important issue to consider is that this phone's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, leaving no choice but to buy a new phone or maybe take the cellphone to an expert who can disassemble it and switch the battery.

This phone includes WiFi connection (which can be provided to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) really quick connection type and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a slower 4G type) and fast 3G connection type, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The iPhone 8 Plus uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone also includes many useful features as Fingerprint Identification, Wireless charger compatibility, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Navigation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Apple is offering this cellphone for 949 dollars, which is a very high price for a cellphone this level. No matter if you want a cellphone for work, are an amateur photographer, will use it as a social device or are looking for a gaming cellphone, this phone is probably the correct option for you. Apple packs this phone with Lightning to USB Cable, Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, Documentation , USB Power Adapter and EarPods with Lighting connector.
