Talking about the design, I particularly love how comfortable it is to hold in the palm. The dimensions aren’t too high and will even fit perfectly into little hands. You can easily handle and operate it with one hand.

On the back, the iPhone 8 Plus is protected by a glass material and aluminum frame on the sides to give it a beautiful appearance.

More to this elegant phone is a front mounted fingerprint scanner as an added security. Overall, the design fits the color variants.

iPhone 8 Plus sports a 12-megapixel dual rear camera; each of which is specially designed to produce crystal clear and colorful images. Both cameras are accompanied by an LED flash for bright images in low-lit environments.

The first one has a standard wide-angle f/1.8 lens while the second has a f/2.8 lens with an effective two-times magnification compared to the standard lens.

The cameras come with additional features which Apple calls Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting. They use depth information and facial mapping to artificially blur the background of a photo or apply different lighting effects to a person’s face.

On the front, there is a 7-megapixel selfie camera that produces befitting images for Instagram, Snapchat, and other social media platforms.

The iPhone runs on iOS 11 operating system and is powered by Apple A11 Bionic chipset for a great overall performance. This combined with the 3GB RAM and 64GB or 256GB ROM gives you a flawless multitasking experience.
