We feel a bit sorry for the iPhone 8 Plus. Usually Apple's big screen iterative update would be set to be the new daddy of the iPhone family. But this year sees the iPhone X take that mantle and steal its thunder.
But the successor to the iPhone 7 Plus will still have a very valuable function to fulfill in the iPhone menagerie. If you want one of the newest large screened Apple smartphones, but the price of the iPhone X make you feel dizzy, then the iPhone 8 Plus is the one for you.
So how are iPhone 8 Plus prices looking. On average, if you shop wisely (using our price comparison chart below) you'll save yourself at least £250 if you go for this handset over the iPhone X. We've seen monthly tariffs as low as the £30 region if you're prepared to stick a wedge down upfront. The likes of EE, Vodafone and O2 are all competing for the best prices and have attractively balanced options around the 5GB data point.
Still a little expensive? Don't forget that that orders for iPhone 8 deals are also live if you'd prefer the smaller smartphone, along with the smaller prices. And you can save £10 on the upfront cost of any iPhone 8 Plus deal at Mobiles.co.uk by using the voucher code 10OFF at the checkout.
The top 5 best iPhone 8 Plus deals you can get in the UK today:
iPhone 8 Plus price: how much does it cost?
A mighty £799. That's how much the 64GB iPhone 8 Plus will cost you in the UK according to the RRP – that's almost one hundred pounds more than the 7 Plus cost the year before.
Need more memory – then your only other option is spending an extra £150 and grabbing a £949 256GB iPhone 8 Plus.
If you opt to buy the iPhone 8 Plus upfront without a contract you will save money in the long run, but of course £799 is a lot of money to pay. If you can afford it though it the way to go once you pair it with a cheap SIM only deal.
This is the iPhone you want if you can't quite afford the iPhone X. It's got the larger battery, same powerful innards and strong camera. If you don't mind the poorer screen, it's a good option – and the screen is still a beaut. And we prefer it quite a lot more to the regular iPhone 8.
