The iPhone 8 Plus 256GB remains a solid option in the iPhone ecosystem despite seeing some competition since it launched. Usually, when Apple announces new iPhones, older ones get the axe, but Apple keeps the iPhone 8 Plus securely in its lineup alongside the iPhone 8 as its affordable iOS devices. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus represents the last hurrah for the old iPhone design with a Home button and thick chin bezels.
Glistening Gold Back
The main thing you’ll notice about the iPhone 8 Plus 256GB, at least compared to its predecessors, is the external colouring. The gold version is the main event, with a gold aluminium rim and a gold/white glass back mixing. It’s a striking combination and compared to the 7 Plus is rather visually different, creating a more luxurious effect.
Portrait Lighting Mode
The headline feature of the 12MP dual sensor on the rear camera is the enhanced bokeh mode- dubbed Portrait Lighting. It shows how powerful the A11 Bionic chip is inside - being able to algorithmically work out the contours of the face and change the lighting dynamically is impressive. This can be done either while the picture is being taken or after, via the gallery.
True Tone Screen and Better Speakers
True Tone, technology is taken from the iPad Pro, changes the colour temperature of the screen to match the ambient lighting better. Mobile HDR is also supported on the iPhone 8 Plus 256GB. The dual speakers on the iPhone 8 Plus 256GB are also upgraded over the previous model. Apple is claiming that it’s 25% louder, while the upgrade year-on-year isn’t marked, but the quality of the speaker output is rich enough!
Apple rammed its image signal processor (ISP) into the A11 Bionic chipset, and that leads to greater texture reproduction as more detail is captured. But what’s most impressive about the iPhone 8 Plus- combined with the iOS 11 software are the editing capabilities. The first is the Loop, Bounce and Long Exposure options that arrived with iOS 11 and make real use of Live Photos. It’s fun to play with the effects, and the phone will analyze an image and suggest which option you should use to get the best effect.
The video modes are another example of Apple bringing effects that make a difference to a camera phone party. The 4K 60-frames-per-second (fps) filming is really smooth and clear, and a nice way to future-proof your videos.

All iPhone 8 variants are waterproof, and that includes the iPhone 8 256GB model. It has an IP67 rating that allows it to operate 1 metre underwater for up to 30 mins. Although it has an IP67 certification, prolonged exposure to water can damage your iPhone’s motherboard in the long run. Always use a waterproof casing for extra protection.
Is it worth buying the iPhone 8 Plus?
Yes, the iPhone 8 Plus is worth buying especially for those who don’t want an iPhone without a home button, as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus was the last iPhone with a touch ID.
What iPhone has the best battery life?
If you want the longest-lasting iPhone, the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max is the clear winner which lasts around 11 hours after full charge, with iPhone XR on a close second.
Which iPhone is the best value for money?
The new iPhone SE (2020) is undeniably the best value for an iPhone, as it runs on the same powerful chip as the iPhone 11 series, but you’re only getting a single-lens camera. Other iPhones you can consider are Apple iPhone X, Apple iPhone 7 Plus, and Apple iPhone XS Max.
