We'll be comparing the display and design, performance, and camera of these two big phones and see how they stack up against each other.

Cutting-edge Familiarity - Apple iPhone 8 Plus Price in Singapore

Incorporating characteristics of its predecessors such as the 6, 6s, and 7, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus is familiar yet shares similar technical power as the iPhone X. Take a look at the other features of this high-end smartphone while comparing it to the iPhone 8.

Apple iPhone 8 vs iPhone 8 Plus

Similarities: Sleek Glass Body, Six-core A11 Bionic Processor, Water Resistance

For a while now, Apple has abandoned the rear glass design since the release of the iPhone 4s. Both iPhone 8 and 8 Plus make their long-awaited return with their beautifully crafted all-glass body with the usual aluminium edge for drop protection. The glass body provides a little more weight for the smartphone which is also less slippery. On top of that, it is much more durable as Apple worked directly with glass supplier Gorilla Glass to hold out against abuse.

Thanks to the six-core A11 Bionic processor, you can surf the net, text, or email seamlessly on both iPhone 8s. Capable of utilising all six-cores simultaneously as they feature a second-generation performance controller, both phones deliver a significantly higher performance (70% faster) compared to the A10 Fusion.

Certified with IP67 water and dust resistance, both smartphones can withstand being submerged in 1.5 meters of water for up to half an hour. With Apple designing its GPU, it has resulted in an astounding 30% boost in performance in the iPhone 8 series. With the incorporation of the new Metal 2 API found in iOS 11, you can anticipate various gameplay, machine learning, and AR applications on the iPhone 8 Plus.

Differences: Screen Size, Primary Cameras, Battery Life

The prominent difference between iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is their display, with the former sporting a 4.7-inch retina display and the latter exhibiting a 5.5-inch retina display. Onto the specific numbers, here is a size and weight comparison of both models.

  • iPhone 8 - 5.45 x 2.65 x 0.29 inch and 148g
  • iPhone 8 Plus - 6.28 x 3.07 x 0.32 inch and 202g

As usual, 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. With regards to the phones' camera department, iPhone 8 is seen with a 12-MP rear camera with an aperture of f/1.8, as well as a 7-MP front camera; whereas the iPhone 8 Plus boasts a 12-MP dual camera - one with an f/1.8 aperture and another telephoto camera with an f/2.8 aperture and OIS system.

Apple's Plus models usually come with better advantages, which include greater battery capacity. While the 8 merely has a 1,822mAh battery lasting up to 13 hours on regular use, its Plus version has a capacity of 2,675 mAh that can accommodate up to 21 hours of talk time. Although their battery life 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.

How much is the iPhone 8 Plus in Singapore?

As of May 2020, the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus costs SG$899 for the 64GB model and SG$969 for the 128GB model at Apple retail stores in Singapore and are both available in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. On iPrice Singapore, the price of the phone starts from SG$438 for the 64GB variant, available on Shopee.

What's in the box of an iPhone 8 Plus?

The iPhone 8 Plus comes with a pair of EarPods with Lightning Connector, a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, 5W USB power adapter, Lightning to USB-A cable, SIM ejector tool as well as a pamphlet.

How much is a used iPhone 8 Plus worth?

According to Red White Mobile, a used iPhone 8 Plus is worth between S$470 and S$520, depending on the variant and condition. As for the brand new trade-in value of the phone, you can redeem approximately S$720 to S$820 for a non-activated set.

Is iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone XR better?

Given both phones’ distinctive features that fulfil different needs, it depends on the user’s preference. If you prefer a phone with longer battery life, a Face ID and a newer processor, opt for the XR. On the other hand, if you’re seeking a dual camera with a home button and don’t mind a notchless phone, then the iPhone 8 Plus fits the bill. The table below shows the differences between the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone XR:
