iPhone 8 and 8 Plus review: Change in small doses

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.

Pros
  • Impeccable performance
  • Great build quality
  • Dual camera works well
  • Solid battery life
  • Early AR apps are impressive
Cons
  • Design may be too familiar to some
  • The camera humps are back
  • Portrait Lighting modes need work
  • Can be uncomfortable to hold
  • Not as water resistant as its competitors
