iPhone 8 Plus Price in Pakistan
The iPhone 8 is fundamentally the fourth generation of the iPhone 6. Apple told us it thinks of the 8 as an “all-new design,” but that’s also what Apple said about the iPhone 6S and 7. It must take a lot of effort to keep reinventing the same basic design without actually changing it. The major difference you’ll notice is the glass back, but other than that nothing has changed. The 8 and 8 Plus will fit right into 7 and 7 Plus cases perfectly. So, this is the iPhone 8 plus price in Pakistan. Let’s talk about if this smartphone is worth its price!

Display & Design
Apple has always been masterful at fit and finish, and the way the glass slightly curves at the edges and blends into the familiar 7000-series aluminum rim is super-impressive, despite the faint lip where the glass meets the metal. The single biggest disappointment with the iPhone 8 Plus is its design. With glass comes the risk of it getting smashed when dropped – just ask anyone who owned an iPhone 4. Even if Apple calls it “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone”, the internet has already seen many examples of just how shattered the phone can get if you lob it onto concrete. So buy a case to avoid the pain.
The gloss of the glass delivers much more of a sparkle and sheen than we’ve seen on the recent metal iPhones of late, too. To be honest, the iPhone 8 Plus is comfortably my favorite iteration of the design, but that seems like faint praise at this stage. The iPhone 8 series has a modified chassis from the one that proved popular with the iPhone 7 but the devices look broadly similar. There’s now glass front and back – rather than the metal affair Apple has been using since the iPhone 5 – plus curved edges both front and back, separated by a metal frame. Running a finger from front to back feels near-seamless, as the phone carries Apple’s usual high level of craftsmanship.

The camera of the iPhone 8 Plus
The best feature of the iPhone 8 plus is the 12MP dual sensor on the rear camera is the enhanced bokeh mode – dubbed Portrait Lighting. The phone locks focus instantly and offer blazing fast capture speeds. We also noticed improvements in detail levels, colors, and sharpness when using the telephoto lens. Images shot with 2x optically enabled zoom produced good results under inadequate light conditions. The abilities here are pretty astounding, and show how powerful the A11 Bionic chip is inside – being able to algorithmically work out the contours of the face and change the lighting dynamically is impressive.

Portrait Lighting is, well, fine – and we almost feel guilty for not evangelizing about it more, given how much intelligence has gone into creating it. But taking a Portrait mode picture takes some setting up as it is – so achieving the level of quality where Portrait Lighting makes a big difference to the outcome is rare. This can be done either while the picture is being taken or after, via the gallery. It’s a powerful tool, albeit not one that really impressed anyone we showed it to. That’s kind of indicative of the iPhone 8 Plus as a whole – while the overall experience is smoothed and enhanced, the headline features aren’t really there.

Apple has complimented the improved display on the iPhone 8 Plus with an evidently upgraded audio experience from its stereo speaker setup. The speakers on the iPhone 8 Plus are louder and also offer cleaner sound in comparison to the iPhone 7 Plus. Cranking the volume to maximum levels doesn’t distort the sound, which is a big plus.

Battery Considering iPhone 8 plus price in Pakistan
Battery life is solid, lasting over 32 hours between charges on average – an increase of 5 hours on the iPhone 7 Plus – meaning that you’ll be able to make it to lunchtime the next day if you forget to charge it overnight. The iPhone 8 Plus has the same six-core A11 Bionic processor as its smaller sibling but has an extra gigabyte of memory to help with multitasking. It performed similarly to the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 7 Plus before it in day-to-day activities.
That’s with hundreds of push notifications, 10 or so photos, a 90-minute burst of Netflix, a couple of short phone calls, a quick game, and about 7 hours of listening to Spotify over Bluetooth earbuds. The Plus variants of the iPhone have always charged faster than the smaller non-Plus versions if connected to the right charger. Now both fast charge from USB-C Power Delivery chargers such as those that come with the Google Pixel or USB-C charged laptops and tablets. Unfortunately neither the required USB-C to Lightning cable nor a fast charger comes in the box. With that level of stamina, the iPhone 8 Plus has few rivals.
