The iPhone 8 Plus after a week of use

After a week of use, I can say that I am very happy with the iPhone 8 Plus and that there is no need to wait for the iPhone X. I was not sure if it would be a good idea and more coming from an iPhone 7 Plus. Given that Apple is going to launch the iPhone X in November with more advanced features such as facial recognition and AMOLED screen, it seems a risky bet.

After a few days with the iPhone 8 Plus, I'm pretty sure that most people will really like this device. Basically, the iPhone X is going to be the device of those who need the latest and the best, and are willing to wait. The iPhone 8 Plus is for everyone else , and although the design may seem like something old, it's a great model.

How it sounds

Stereo speakers, which emit sound from up and down (or left and right in portrait mode) are louder and actually louder and louder. It's really nice to sit on the couch and watch a TV show on the iPhone without listening to the sound coming from one side of the phone .

How does it feel

This iPhone 8 Plus features a glossy glass instead of aluminum back panel, which Apple has used on almost all of its iPhones. The glass panel allows for support for wireless charging, a feature that Apple had never offered before. The touch is nice, nothing cold and it feels slightly heavier than the iPhone 7 Plus. The grip on the hand is excellent, which brings a sense of security.

Charge without cables

The wireless charge is powered by the "Qi" standard, which is on most phones that offer this charging system. I recognize that it is very comfortable to drop the iPhone into a charging cushion on the desk or on the bedside table, but the Qi standard is even slower than using a charging cable. The good thing is that you do not damage the lightning poncer .

These charging bases are widely available in all online stores and the model I have chosen fulfills perfectly. Apple will launch its own wireless platform next year, and I'm curious if that will add faster load speeds.

The guts

Apple's most advanced processor, called A11 Bionic, moves the terminal like no other processor has done. It is also the most powerful and advanced that assembles any phone in the market . This is noticeable when running the applications, the camera and the most demanding games. When applications start making use of the RA " to the beast " is when we will see that the A11 in all its splendor.

The camera, a great value

There are a lot of really good phones with fantastic cameras right now, including the Samsung Galaxy S8, Note 8 , the Google Pixel 2 XL and the iPhone 7 Plus.

It takes great pictures on the fly, and features a now common option called optical image stabilization that helps keep photos clear even if you move it or you're riding a canoe. The haptic trigger goes fast and the chances of a still image coming out are smaller than before.

Last year, Apple introduced a new feature called "Portrait Mode" on the iPhone 7 Plus. It uses both camera sensors to add a depth-of-field effect, or bokeh , which basically blur the background and converts a simple photo into one that looks like it was shot by a professional photographer, saving distances.

On the iPhone 8 Plus you can change the lighting effects in this mode. You can turn all the background black, create a black and white portrait, change the lighting on the face and more . It's a lot of fun, but it's still in beta mode so it's imperfect. Although it is true that it does so very satisfactorily.

iOS 11

It already comes with iOS 11, which was officially launched on September 19th. Add a lot of features without feeling strange, I recognize that I love iOS 11, what it offers and how it does it.

You'll see the same main icon screen, but Apple has added several new features, however, including my favorite: a redesigned control center . This allows you to slide your finger up from the screen to access all kinds of options.

You can activate a function to record the screen, control your Apple TV , activate Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, view the music controls, access smart lights or devices you may have installed in your home and more.

Should you buy it?

I love the experience of this iPhone , even though its outward appearance is so similar to that of its predecessors. The start button seems very natural and I quite like Apple has added the wireless load, new cameras and a faster processor that will keep me up to date with the best and powerful applications that will launch this year.

Most people probably will be fine with an iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 Plus, but there are really many improvements. The screen is much better, the cameras are better , and wireless charging is an implementation that I'm willing to pay, even if it's still a bit slow. If you do not need these things, then do not make the expense.

Should you wait for the iPhone X? If you are the type of person who likes to show the latest and best technology, for sure. But I did not. It will not be sent until November and we will see who is coming. Too much desire and therefore demand. The factories are working to the fullest, but it is not known if they will provide .

In short, it is a great apparatus. The design follows the line started in 2014 with the 6 series, but the important thing is inside. Let the camera be as it is and have that monster in the form of a chip make the iPhone 8 Plus happy . And a lot.
