iPhone XS vs iPhone 8 Plus
Which phone is best for you?
When iPhone 8 Plus was released in 2017 (along with iPhone 8), it was accompanied by a new flagship model, iPhone X. In 2018, iPhone XS builds on the success of the flagship model – with its large edge-to-edge OLED screen that shows deeper blacks and more realistic colours.
iPhone 8 Plus still has plenty going for it – including a dual lens main camera with 2x optical zoom. Plus it offers Portrait Mode, letting you choose different effects to dramatically up your selfie game. But iPhone XS has more to offer. There’s the TrueDepth front facing camera – letting you map your expression onto fun 3D Animoji – an improved 12-megapixel main camera and more.
Whichever you choose, you’re sure to enjoy it – check our quick feature guide to see which is best for you.
