Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus is almost as good as the iPhone X… almost

A dual lens camera. A lush, glassy design. Erm, forget about the screen

You can’t always be king. Just ask Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods or the iPhone 8 Plus.

What was once the best, most expensive handset in Apple’s gadget arsenal – the one with a big 5.5in screen and a dual-lens camera – has now been knocked down a spot in the smartphone pecking order.

But hey! Let’s look on the bright side here. The iPhone 8 Plus still has all the stuff that made its predecessors so beloved at Stuff HQ, while also being treated to a new glassy design, wireless charging and Apple’s latest superfast A11 Bionic processor. And it hasn’t been implicated in any major doping scandals or personal controversies either, so that’s a bonus.

It’s available in the UAE from US$885 for its 64GB from next Friday, 22 September, making it cheaper than the iPhone X.
