What are the strengths of the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB

IPhone 8 Plus 64GB's size

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is 3.0748inches (78.1mm) wide, 6.2inches (158.4mm) tall, and 0.3inches (7.5mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB, it weighs about 7.1oz (202g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

IPhone 8 Plus 64GB's screen

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of iPhone 8 Plus 64GB

The processing power of the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is, at 2.39GHz+2.39GHz×6(Hexacore), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

IPhone 8 Plus 64GB's storage capacity

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

The camera function of iPhone 8 Plus 64GB

The main camera of the iPhone 8 Plus 64GB has a capacity of 12 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB comes with a 7 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of iPhone 8 Plus 64GB

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB has a relatively large battery with 2700mAh. The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of iPhone 8 Plus 64GB

The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
