What's the iPhone 8 Plus like?

In a nutshell, it's a bigger and better 'phablet' version of the iPhone 8.


As the name suggests, the iPhone 8 Plus is a little bigger than the standard iPhone 8. While that one has a measly 4.7-inch screen, the Plus' reaches 5.5 inches - and it has a Full HD resolution.


Another upgrade you get with the 8 Plus is an equally plus-sized camera. On the back, there's a dual-lens 12MP cam, featuring both a telephoto and wide-angle lenses along with optical image stabilisation.


The 8 Plus has processors on board that are miles ahead of all the previous iPhones. You get a high-powered, six-core A11 Bionic chip, plus 3GB of RAM that can handle any task you throw at it.


The battery packed into the iPhone 8 Plus is decent enough to last all day, and it's even capable of wireless charging. Or, with the right adaptor, it can charge a lot more quickly than other iPhones.


This iPhone also has:

  • Fingerprint sensor and Apple Pay
  • Siri
  • IP67 certification, making it water-resistant
  • Fantastic design
  • Up to 256GB memory

Phone 8 Plus pay monthly contracts

There are plenty of contracts available on the iPhone 8 Plus - whatever you're looking for should be covered.

Pay-monthly plans are offered by several networks, including EE, giffgaff, iD Mobile, O2, Three, Vodafone, and more, each with their own benefits. The fast 4G and wide coverage on EE is great for a mega mobile like this one; a giffgaff deal will keep costs down a bit; and some networks will give you free use of entertainment apps to use on your new phone.

There's lots of choice over tariffs and allowances too. If you're a light user, or mostly use your iPhone when you're connected to Wi-Fi, a small allowance with 1GB data or less will suit you fine. Heavier users, meanwhile, can find iPhone deals with unlimited data, minutes, and texts to cover everything.

Some contracts even have flexible billing or let you upgrade early, such as O2 Refresh or Sky Mobile Swap plans.

What's the best price on an iPhone 8 Plus?

The best price for you all depends on what kind of plan you're after. Once you've decided what you want from your contract, sort the grid above by cost - and you'll see all the cheapest iPhone 8 Plus deals right there at the top.

Lower allowances of course come with lower prices. But if you'd rather not compromise there, you can also keep costs down by buying through a reseller like Carphone Warehouse, picking a refurbished handset, or going for a deal from a budget network.

As well as that, look out for special deals for existing customers on your current network - or possibly your broadband provider, if you have BT, Sky, or EE broadband in your home.
