Engadget Review

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.
