Apple iPhone 8 Plus Malaysia Review – Setting the Bar for Flagship Smartphones
Every year, you can rely on Apple to deliver the best smartphones in the market, and the iPhone 8 Plus is no different. The larger sibling of the iPhone 8 which was released in September 2017, this Apple phone consists of cutting-edge features that make it a must-have phone for tech-savvy individuals. Below is a rundown of the best iPhone 8 Plus qualities:

Apple has long abandoned a rear glass design for an iPhone; the last time it was seen was on the iPhone 4S. However, Apple decided to bring back the design on the iPhone 8+ with a beautifully crafted, all-glass body that gives the phone a luxurious look and feel. The glass back is not purely for aesthetic purposes only. Having a glass back means that the iPhone 8 Plus now supports wireless charging, a feature that will be undoubtedly useful for many. The glass chassis also provides more weight to the device, making it sturdier and better to hold.
Improved Display and Audio
The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is fitted with a 5.5-inches Full HD display that offers natural colour reproduction and sharp image quality. However, the true highlight comes in the form of True Tone technology. Taken from the iPad Pro, this technology changes the temperature of the screen to better match the ambient lighting, thus reducing strain on the eye. The screen is also bright enough to be used outdoors under direct sunlight without affecting viewability, making it an ideal choice for individuals who are constantly on the move. Another improvement comes in the form of a dual speaker on the iPhone 8+. Apart from being louder than the ones on previous models, the speakers deliver rich audio and a well-balanced bass.
One of the main reasons why Malaysians love using an Apple smartphone is that it can deliver a flawless performance, regardless of the task you throw at them. Continuing this trademark trait is the iPhone 8 Plus which is fitted with Apple’s own A11 Bionic processor. This new chipset has six cores – four that handle basic functions and the remaining two to do all the required heavy lifting such as photo-editing, intensive gaming, etc. AR also benefits from A11 Bionic, which handles scene recognition, world tracking and incredible graphic at 60fps.
Performance is smooth across the board, and you will not experience any lag even while the phone operates multiple tasks simultaneously. The smartphone comes with iOS 11 that brings augmented reality to hundreds of millions of iOS devices.
Excellent Dual Rear Cameras

The iPhone 8+ features a dual sensor on the rear camera with enhanced Portrait mode and new Portrait Lighting; one being an f/1.8 wide-angle camera and the other an f/2.8 telephoto camera that allows 2x zoom without affecting the quality of the images. But taking a Portrait mode picture requires some setup in and of itself, so achieving the level of quality that portrait lighting creates a significant difference to the outcome is rare.
A new image signal processor developed by Apple provides advanced pixel processing, wide color capture, faster low-light autofocus, and better HDR images, while the new LED True Tone Flash with Slow Sync produces more uniformly lit backgrounds and foregrounds.
Apple has also included a new ISP (image signal processor) into the mix, which provides better textures and colours to your shots. Photos taken in bright settings have vibrant and saturated colours without being overexposed while night shots are sharp and detailed with minimal noise present.
Commendable Battery Life
The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is more than equipped to handle your busy schedules with its generous supply of battery life. The phone can easily last through a day’s worth of repaying WhatsApp messages, browsing social media sites, replying to emails, and occasional games. The phone also comes with fast-charging capabilities, which enables it to be charged to full capacity within a shorter time span. Its new glass back means that users have an alternative method to replenish the power– via wireless charging.
