Capable but not as flashy as its favourite bigger sibling the iPhone X

from news.com.au

Apple’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are likeable phones, and a step up on the models they replace. There are also solid reasons to buy them. If you’re a fan of Apple and fingerprint scanners, this is your best option now and longer if Face ID takes over. If you own an iPhone 6S or earlier model, the speed of the iPhone 8’s new A11 Bionic chip is bound to impress you, as will its wireless charging and water resistance. Its toughened glass panel is also jewellery-grade attractive. But if you already own an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, their successors are probably not the...

An excellent phone forced to the shadows by iPhone X

from USA Today
For many potential buyers, especially those with an older iPhone looking to upgrade, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus represents a solid purchase option. But I'm holding out for the next "latest" iPhone, the looming iPhone X... Full review

The best iPhone you can buy -- until Nov. 3

from Cnet
The iPhone 8 Plus is a superlative phone with a spectacular camera, but wait for the upcoming iPhone X before buying: it promises to fold all of the key features of the 8 Plus into a smaller, sexier package... Full review

Looks like an excited iPhone 7, refreshed in its best party get-up

from The Independent
Okay, so they’re not the all-singing, all-dancing iPhone X, but these phones are both worth moving up to, especially if you are coming from an iPhone 6s or older handset. However, I’d say there’s enough upgrade here to make it worthwhile from an iPhone 7, too... Full review

Very good and very impressive phone

from Wired
If you want an awesome iPhone, this is it. I’d recommend the 8 Plus, if you can stomach the size, because the added camera power and battery life are really nice to have. But both are fantastic phones, upgrades over even last year’s model. But if you want to be part of the future, save your money for now. Then go get an iPhone X and see what’s really coming next...

Great build quality, solid battery life

from Engadget
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... Full review

Fastest phone ever, by a lot

from Tom's Guide
The iPhone 8 Plus backs up its blazing speed and big screen with improved dual cameras and long battery life, making it a better choice than the regular iPhone 8... Full review

Traditionally beautiful powerhouse

from 9to5Mac
If you’re keeping track, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus could have (should have?) been the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, but after spending time with them, wireless charging, the new glass design, and notable camera upgrades feel worthy of the iPhone 8 branding. And for those that couldn’t care less about the iPhone X’s OLED display and Face ID, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus offer a ton more value for money with a traditional look and feel... Full review

Great devices that I would not hesitate to recommend

from The Loop
There is nothing I didn’t like about the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. It’s more powerful, has better cameras, Portrait Lighting, better Portrait Mode, Wireless charging, a better display, True Tone, and iOS 11... Full review

Easily the best phones you can get from Apple at the moment

from Financial Post
It’s not that the new features aren’t noticeable, as they are. Testing Apple’s claims of improvements in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus seem to check out and all are welcomed, but they still feel incremental when compared to last year’s iPhone 7 models. While the value-added for an upgrade from last year may be lower, those who have been sitting on an iPhone 6 or 6s device (or earlier) will notice a significant difference and benefit...
