Design and Display
The glass back has a much nicer feel than the metal one on the 7, and good news is the extra weight (14g from the 7 Plus to the 8 Plus) isn’t noticeable. it looks and feels more premium. It also adds some extra, much-needed grip.IPhone 8 Plus Design

Wounded for you-Click on image

Thankfully, fingerprints aren’t a big deal on the glass back. You’re not wiping the phone on your T-shirt every few minutes, apart from that mirrored Apple logo. (It attracts fingerprints like a magnet). IPhone 8 Plus Display It as a screen size 5.2-inch, with resolution of 1,080 x 1,920

Camera
IPhone 8 plus as a 12-megapixel rear camera and you get a model with dual lenses: one wide-angle and one zoom. The 2x optical zoom of the second lens makes it easier to take pictures of something far away while keeping the image sharp. Single-lens cameras use software to enlarge the picture, but that reduces image quality.

The iPhone 8 plus as a solitary f/2.8 telephoto lens, which allows it to produce those soft-background and bokeh photos in Portrait mode (more of which below). Both models have serviceable 7MP front cameras for selfies and video calls.

Hardware and processor
There is one area where you can categorically say the iPhone 8 Plus is a huge improvement: speed. In fact, the new hexa-core A11 Bionic chip is so good that it batters not only its predecessor but also the Samsung Galaxy S8 and all of its Android flagship buddies into submission as well. As the graphs opposite show, the iPhone 8 Plus is the fastest phone we’ve ever benchmarked.
The new Apple-designed GPU, Metal 2, has Core ML which lets developers integrate machine learning into their apps. 

Resistance
While Apple markets the iPhone 8 Plus as water-resistant, it is not as water-resistant as other expensive phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. While the iPhone 8 Plus can stand up to brief accidental spills, you shouldn’t use it underwater intentionally.IPhone 8 Plus Resistance

Apple’s warranty and AppleCare+ won’t cover water damage, despite Apple advertising the phone as water-resistant.

Battery
Surprisingly, the battery inside the Apple iPhone 8 Plus is a 2,675mAh unit, which is smaller by 225mAh than the iPhone 7 Plus’ 2,900mAh unit.

Here, the iPhone 8 Plus’ rivals have a clear upper hand. In our video-rundown battery test, in which they set the screen brightness to 170cd/m2 and put the phone in Flight mode, the iPhone 8 Plus lasted 13hrs 54mins before giving up.

Wireless charging
Also the main reason for the glass back is the presence of wireless charging, a first for an iPhone. Apple is playing catchup here.IPhone 8 Plus Wireless charging
Since the iPhone 8 plus support wireless charging via third-party accessories using the Qi open wireless standard, you can use dozens of products made by other companies.

Fingerprint sensor/ Touch ID
IPhone 8 plus not having the face scanner feature is a shame, but no worries you still get the fast touch ID/ fingerprint sensor mounted on the front
