iPhone 8 Plus in 2021 – Should You Still Buy It?

iPhone 8 Plus in 2021 – Should You Still Buy It?

iPhones 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are no longer for sale new by Apple, but are still available as refurbished or new in some retailers. I help you decide if you should still pick up an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus in 2020 and beyond or if you should upgrade to an iPhone 12 Pro or 12 Pro Max. #iphone8plus #iphone #Apple

    I just bought an iPhone 8 Plus (Certified Refurbished) in Silver 256 GB. I can’t wait until it arrives in the mail!!! It should be here on either Monday or Tuesday. This is going to be a sleepless weekend. 😣

  2. Ghostt408 on November 26, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Omg yes I see so many people with the 8 plus I have it too in red the 8 plus not that dumb small 8 so fast tbh I love it 💕

  3. Some Guy on November 26, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Wanting to find one strictly to use as a standalone GPS for my motorcycle. The newer iphones with mechanical lens focusing get destroyed by the vibrations.

  4. Barbara Potter on November 26, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    I have the iPhone 8 , is the display screen larger in the iPhone 8 Plus ?
    I’m looking for bigger screen display , but still love the home button ,so would like to keep that feature!
    Thanks in advance for answers.

  5. babloo LU on November 26, 2021 at 11:03 pm

  9. Abhirama Datta Yanamandra on November 26, 2021 at 11:04 pm

  10. Shaunys on November 26, 2021 at 11:05 pm

  11. Zeta on November 26, 2021 at 11:06 pm

  12. Evelyn Ambagan on November 26, 2021 at 11:07 pm

  13. DJ Aguinaga on November 26, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I’m literally crying right now 😅

  15. Canis XI on November 26, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    8 plus is still good even tho I have 12 pro max and I’m it upgrading to the 13 pro max

  16. Rich Smith on November 26, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I smashed my iphone6 on the weekend by accident and my sister gave me her Iphone 8 Plus to replace it.
    I have no idea the features of this phone so here i am. All i know is it takes really nice pics at night compared to the blurry pics i got with the 6.

  17. Dexiety y on November 26, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I’ve got mine new about 2 years ago and it’s still perfect and still does everything I need it to as a phone I will probably keep it until it dies

  18. LIGHTNING on November 26, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    I got the iPhone 7 which has a smashed screen had over 2 years looking to upgrade I was going to get a iPhone 11 Pro but I don’t think I need the small amount of new features that i think won’t be better for me Touch ID is better. So am considering this one

  19. FnordRabbit on November 26, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I’m only upgrading if I need to, I can’t upload much videos with my 32GB iPhone 7, I’m grateful, just hope I get more space.

  20. JOD3N on November 26, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    is it a pain in the ass to replace the battery?

  21. DeciVlog on November 26, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I would rather get the se but it’s the same thing you shouldn’t upgrade to the se if you have 8 but I have the iPhone 12

  22. That's an order on November 26, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Using the 8plus as the second phone . Love it ))

  23. Arnel Mortel on November 26, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Wow nice phone!love it

  24. Jack H on November 26, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Been using my 8+ for over 2 years (purchased in mid Sep 2019). Still works great! I’ll carry on using this phone for at least another year!

  25. Bruce Lee on November 26, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Ive been using my for about 3 years now, it is good in performance but ram wise wish there was more. I can open about 3-4 apps on the background and that’s it , sometimes even fewer and it will need to reload the app

  26. TheMystro1971 on November 26, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    This is the last of the real flagship iPhones. “Home button” …..nuff said. Apple has lost focus and direction and my latest 13 doesn’t feel as
    “special” or “premium” as the 8+. I am actually buying backwards now.

  27. NIKE RailfanningTTM on November 26, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    I hate the new iPhone design (X and UP), the X started the trend to no home buttons and one whole screen, and even the new iPad pros have no home buttons, its just one big screen that you can break easily

  28. Jean Avendaño on November 26, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    I really recommend this phone, I bought it two months ago and I am having a great time with it. Very smoth, nice sound, good photos. Battery is at 81% and still doing good throught the day.

  29. Janice Hill on November 26, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I think these videos are done so well – thank you

  30. Ghostt408 on November 26, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    The photos are great wdym even in 2021 f that dumb notch

  31. Arnel Mortel on November 26, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Nice sharing

  32. Thomas Engle on November 26, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    I kept my 8+ after upgrading to a 12 Pro. I use it as an iPad now. It has a data plan only on it and it stays in my car as my cable attached apple car play unit.

  33. Aria Hart on November 26, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    I’m getting a hand-me-down 8 plus from my Mother for Christmas, upgrading from a 6s.

  34. Unknown Is Better on November 26, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I still use it I replaced my iPhone screen myself every time lol so cheap and easy

  35. Sajan Kumar on November 26, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Excellent review and quality content. I watched this video review just after watching MKBHD’s iPhone SE (2nd Gen) usage review video and it feels in the same league, atleast the quality of content and review. Can’t believe I didn’t get to know this channel until today. In this case, better late than never. I had to pause the video and check to see "Who is this guy and what channel is this?" LOL. Super liked the presentation and review, Sub’d with bell notification. TY 🙂

  36. ☆Midnight☆ on November 26, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Listen the iPhone 8 plus is actually my dream phone and I might be getting it tomorrow who knows but even if you like said bad things about it I would still get it

  37. Gamberro on November 26, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Where can I get that wallpaper?

  38. John Smith on November 26, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Can i send a text and take a picture?
    Don’t over think the wheel.

  39. MTB RO on November 26, 2021 at 11:38 pm
