Apple iPhone 8 Plus review: Fast but far from inspirational

Not a particularly exciting upgrade, or an essential one, but the iPhone 8 Plus is still a very fine phone

Price
£949

There's a concerning trend for new flagship phones to pull further away from the prices of their predecessors. By create a gaping void with handsets in the mid-range, manufacturers are attempting to establish the latest models as luxury items without offering huge leaps forward in technology.

Apple's iPhone 8 Plus is no exception.

The cheapest iPhone 8 Plus is 799, up from the 719 launch price of the iPhone 7 Plus and, for that, you get double the basic storage than you did last year: 64GB. The 256GB iPhone 8 Plus reaches the dizzying heights of 949.

There have been advancements, of course. Wireless charging is significant, as are the design changes made to make wireless charging possible but are these advancements proportional to this leap in price?
