iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone 6

A bigger screen and much more besides

If you’re looking to upgrade from iPhone 6 to iPhone 8 Plus you’ll have some serious advances to look forward to, on top of the larger screen size While iPhone 6 has an 8-megapixel camera for example iPhone 8 Plus also boasts not one but two 12 megapixel cameras. These cleverly work together to offer 2X optical zoom, as well as some neat special effects. The new Portrait Lighting mode also lets you create stunning selfies.

It also has a new wireless charging system that lets you simply rest in on a charging pad while the battery recovers. This is a really useful function that we’re likely to take for granted in years to come.

Faster and more efficient

iPhone 8 Plus is also clearly ahead with its 6-core A11 Bionic processor that ensures a smooth experience with the most demanding games and apps. Its improved efficiency also means you’ll get longer between charges. Added to that, iPhone 8 Plus now has the ability to charge more quickly – up to 50% in 30 minutes. Upgrade from iPhone 6 to iPhone 8 Plus and you’ll have plenty of new features to explore in your new phone.
