I had bought this iPhone 8 Plus in the Red Edition for my girlfriend. I had had an Iphone 7 Plus and now I had an iPhone X. The iPhone 8 Plus in RED looks really chic (a little darker red) and I would really like it as a man. The display is very sharp and you can take 4K videos and also take great live pictures. No matter which app you run (work or games) everything runs very fast. The handling is very easy with the Iphone and the performance is great. It’s even waterproof (if you accidentally spill water on the Iphone it doesn’t matter – you should be careful to let the Iphone dry and not charge it for 1 day). Everything is technically up to date. Wireless Charging is possible without a cable for charging (separately available charging station). Touch ID for fingerprint is fast and still available ( iPhone X only with Face ID to unlock ) Also a point of criticism why one prefers to use iPhone 8 Plus. Also the software updates are provided for years ahead and you don’t have to worry that it is not safe. Soon IOS 12 will be released in autumn and then the iPhone 8 Plus will get even faster and new features. All in all I can recommend it completely.

My new IPhone 8 Plus is by far the best IPhone I’ve had so far! Before I had the SE and after that the 7 Series. Even if the 8 Plus is not the very latest model, I don’t think you have to do without anything – on the contrary! Everything runs very fast and smooth, the large display is really great, the camera takes very good pictures and finally the iPhone has a really strong battery! Now I can get there for 2-3 days with normal use. Perfect! I am also very satisfied with the reception and the voice quality and notice a significant improvement compared to the previous models. Especially with the 7 series I was quite disappointed with the voice quality. At first I was a little worried that the size and weight might bother me in everyday life, especially if you have rather small female hands. Of course you notice that the device is heavier, but I don’t find it disturbing at all. I also got used to the size after a few days. Now the 7 seems really small to me 🙂 In summary I can say that I am really completely satisfied with the 8 Plus. Especially if you don’t necessarily have to have the latest model, I can absolutely recommend it!

Because of the design of the IPhone X I decided to use the 8 Plus. Hardware technically there is hardly any difference. Speed and performance as always top. The battery life is ok, respectively good, you can easily get through the day, but for two days it is only enough with moderate use. You can’t complain about the camera. As expected, it takes good pictures that you can also use. The portrait mode is still expandable, but a nice gimmick for in between. Finally, the loudspeakers are a bit better and you can now listen to quality music, and the maximum volume is definitely impressive. The colours and the sharpness of the screen are ok, but I’m annoyed that they didn’t go for a 4k resolution already on this model. All in all, it’s a successful last Retro IPhone, which is still very good on the mobile phone market and even plays up there. Especially in the benchmark tests it had top marks.

What can I say? I’ve been going back and forth for a long time. It’s either 10 plus or 8 plus. After a lot of thought, I decided on the 8-plus. I had a 6s before and have to say that the plus is of course another number. 🙂 It is beautiful, runs stable (like every Apple product) and perfect for the hands of a 1,94m man. The reason why I chose the 8 Plus instead of the 10 is that the inner life is almost the same. If you don’t need gadgets like Face ID, Animoji, OLED ‘and so on’ and are a friend of the old design, this model is the perfect choice. Furthermore, the iPhone 8 Plus contains proven technology that has been further developed over the years. The IPhone 10 is the ‘first’ model of its series and probably has to struggle with itself. If the design of the iPhone 10 becomes generally accepted I will think about it in 3 years. Until then I had at least all my iPhone models.

serves as a replacement for my Iphone 6 (Plus), which now weakens with increasing demands (e.g. editing pictures, DJ app and various games for on the go) from speed. The setup works great with Itunes (create backup before –&gt, connect new Iphone to PC –&gt, import backup) or with ICloud. There were some minor problems with the playlists but even that was quickly fixed (the user was responsible for the error ,-)). The Homebutton (2nd gen.) still needs some getting used to but the rest is everything in the usual Apple manner. The device works fast and reliable and the battery lasts for 1 1/2 days (normal use: checking e-mail, surfing the internet (Wlan), streaming music via Bluetooth (car, speakers), playing etc.). The workmanship is very good and I expected nothing else in this price range.

A very nice and high-quality device. Unfortunately also the price. And for this one you expected more. For many years Applefans and also the first Applephone already had. With the iPhone 8 Plus you still have to realize that the inner values are not given. A mobile phone should primarily be for making phone calls. And exactly there it hapern massively! Reception of the D1 network is more than poor. Often no call arrives and that although two bars are to be seen. Also the Wlan is not exactly the best in reception. These were the exclusion facts to send it back. Purchase recommendation: NO

So this should be the highly acclaimed Apple quality. Well. It may be that Apple was once good, since IP 6 I can’t say that anymore. The last IP 7 I had, calls were swallowed, and you had to listen more carefully when you’re on the phone, the constant repetitions because the mic was so bad, by the way, with the IP 8 it’s not really better, and that it’s not better can be found in the official Apple community… No thanks apple but other brands can do that too, the only thing you can say here are the good speakers that bring some sound quality. But for telephoning it’s just nasty…

I am very happy with the IPhone 8 Plus had a 6s in small and the change to the big one was a big deal. No problem what is a bit annoying that the jack is gone but also the 7s was a very good choice. The resolution of the camera is worlds better than on some other smartphones and also the super clear retina display. The battery life is excellent for the size of the phone, even when using the phone the whole time. Buying decision number one for me was that there is still the home button which was unfortunately removed on the iPhone X.

I like the iPhone 8 Plus very much, it has a nice design and despite its size it fits well in the hand. The processor is quite fast, the apps are loaded quickly. The photos have a very good resolution and are well shown on the display. Especially the microphone and the loudspeaker have improved. Very good stereo effects on the loudspeaker. Unfortunately, the device is quite heavy. I am satisfied with the battery life so far. However, I don’t use it all the time either. The built-in front and main cameras are also very good.

I’ve been an Iphone fan for years and have never regretted my decision for the 8 Plus in any way. It is easy to use and it is really fun to handle. The battery lasts casually for about 24 hours, which I find really good. My 6s was partially empty after 8-10 hours, depending on use, and then had to be recharged. The camera of the iPhone 8 Plus makes super great pictures and taking pictures is great fun, because you get very high quality pictures. A very nice, visually appealing smartphone that I would buy again immediately.

ch just say wow. I’m thrilled and wanted to say that I used to have an android system and was worried about the calendar pictures etc. but you can also download the google calendar app and in no time you have your previously synchronized data on your old mobile phone on your iphone. I am super satisfied and recommend it with pleasure. The iphone is rather white and you can’t see any fingerprints. The colour gives a fresh feeling. It has a super vivid sound and you will notice this if you have used a galaxy s8 before.

I bought the iphone 8 plus for Christmas and I am very happy with it! 🙂 Super fast processor, takes super nice pictures and the colors of the photos are just great! Had an iphone 6 before which was also very nice….but this one surpasses the iphone 6 by worlds! I do not regret the purchase of this iphone 8 plus (despite the not so cheap price of Apple phones)! It’s a bit heavier, I had to get used to it in the beginning, but now I don’t want to give it away anymore! ,-) I can only recommend the mobile phone! 🙂

In my opinion one of the last real iPhone. I do not like the development of the current one. FaceID etc. Here everything is still as usual. Even if the home button is only imitated, it gives you the haptic feeling. Never wanted a big one before. But here I’m undecided, and I don’t regret my decision. It’s in the palm of my hand. A little slippery without a bumper, though. First-rate camera. Just does everything it’s supposed to, reliably. I’m used to that. Can only recommend it.

I am an IPhone fan and am very enthusiastic about the 8 plus. Had the 6s plus before, so it was not a big change. I think the size is very good, can be held well in the hand, for older eyes very good to read and use. Just had to change my mind that the photos have such a high resolution and good quality that you have to convert them on the fixed PC. I find that too short thought from Apple. I hope that will be solved with a next update! Otherwise this is an excellent phone!

First time ever, shipping was super fast. The phone was there after about two weeks, although it took up to 7 weeks. But let’s get to the mobile phone… it’s amazing. It really is. Had the 6s before and was also absolutely satisfied, the 8 plus simply surpasses everything. It makes super rad beautiful pictures (for the girls among us, definitely super :p ) the battery lasts a thousand times longer than the 6s. So all in all I am as always very satisfied with the iPhone.

I have had all IPhone generations since the IPhone 3. But this IPhone is the absolute hammer. Runs much smoother and faster than my last IPhone 7, the camera is better by class and the workmanship is second to none. Just like my I-Mac and I-Pad the quality is simply unmatched! Of course it has its price for me the best IPhone Apple has ever built. By the way the IPhone X is not better in my opinion. You can save the extra price. But this is as always a matter of taste.

If you need a 1A smartphone, with a big display, great camera, great performance and unproblematic software, you should buy it here. I had all direct predecessors and can say, the newer generations are always worth the new investment. Although Apple has a hard time always changing the design, the question arises whether it is even necessary in this price range, because you don’t always buy a car in the latest design. So from my side an absolute recommendation to buy.

The change from iPhone 6 to the 8 Plus is more than noticeable. After thinking about whether it should be the X or the 8 Plus for a long time, the decision was made to go with this one. The reason is the extremely good and proven IPS panel. The suspected color distortion of the X due to the Pentil Matrix OLED was justified. True Tone also works better with the IPS panel. It is better to skip the X er and wait a generation until the teething troubles are eradicated.
