Apple iPhone 8 Plus Specs, Review & FAQs in Malaysia

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:

Sleek Design

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.

Flawless Performance

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.

What is the size of the iPhone 8 Plus?

The iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920pixel screen with 401ppi. It has the same size as an iPhone 6s Plus with better performance, an improved camera and a True Tone screen.

What is the difference between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus?

One of the most obvious differences between the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is the screen. The iPhone 8 Plus almost has a phablet-sized screen exhibiting a 5.5-inch retina HD display while the iPhone 8 has a 4.7-inch retina HD as well. Besides, there's a slight difference in RAM for both models. The iPhone 8 comes in 2GB RAM while its Plus phone comes in 3GB RAM.

The camera also marks a significant difference between the two iPhone devices. The iPhone 8 has a single-lens 12MP sensor while the iPhone 8 Plus has a 12MP dual sensor. The iPhone 8 Plus also performs better than the iPhone 8 in terms of speed and battery capacity. Apple iPhone 8 merely has a 1,822mAh battery lasting up to 13 hours on regular use, its Plus version has a capacity of 2,691 mAh that can accommodate up to 21 hours of talk time. Although their battery capacity isn't much improved as compared to the iPhone 7 series, Apple's introduction of fast charging and wireless charging support to this series makes up for this disadvantage.

Is the iPhone 8 Plus waterproof?

Yes, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus has an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance. Since the release of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, flagship iPhone models have retained their IP67 rating which resists water and dust, and this continues on to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Is it worth buying an Apple iPhone 8 Plus?

If you’re looking for a new iPhone with a lower budget, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus might be the one you should consider. The phone has been known for its high performance and quality that you can continue to use for the next five years or more. The processing powers and cameras of this iPhone will still be good enough to serve you in the upcoming years. The newest Apple iPhone ranges offer a big edge-to-edge display, but if you prefer an iPhone with a smaller screen, easier one-hand multitasking feature, fingerprint sensor, and a home button, the iPhone 8 Plus is worth buying.

Can the back glass of the iPhone 8 be replaced?

If you happen to break the back glass of your iPhone 8, take it to the nearest Apple Service Centre near you. If you attempt to fix it yourself or if you take it to an unauthorized service centre, you might void your warranty. The specialist at the Apple Service Centre will first examine the damage and give you a diagnosis as well as a price quote.

Does the iPhone 8 Plus have wireless charging?

Yes, the iPhone 8 Plus supports wireless charging as well as fast charging.

Can you take pictures underwater with the iPhone 8?

Yes, the iPhone 8 Plus has an IP67 certification, which means it can survive under one metre of water for up to 30 minutes. You can take underwater pictures and videos during those 30 minutes.
