Yes, I’ve bought the brand new iPhone 8Plus, but no, it wasn’t for a caprice, instead, I took the opportunity as my 6s went broken just a few days before… (good excuse, isn’t?)
Anyway, I had few doubts before buying, because of the expensive price and the big size, but now, after a couple of days of usage, I don’t regret at all:
the iPhone 8 Plus is more than just a phone, is a powerful tablet and a high quality camera.
One of the main reasons why I chose the 8 Plus is the new camera features, different from the standard 8 model. Indeed, the 8 Plus has two 12 Mp cameras, wide angle and telephoto, while the standard 8 model has just one. And also the new portrait mode is an exclusivity of the 8 Plus.
But let’s see the technical specs:
This new iPhone 8Plus is extremely good, powerful and fast, other than having a wonderful design. On a photography point of view, the two 12 Mp cameras, wide-angle lens with 1.8 aperture and a telephoto lens, with a 2.8 aperture, together with the new “portrait mode” feature, makes this phone become a truly high-quality photo-camera for everyday usage and street photography.
The iPhone 8Plus can be a very good backup or side camera paired with my Leica SL, to be used in those situations where you need to be very light and discreet.
Well done Apple, once again!
