The iPhone 8 is a successful execution of a familiar idea. From the outside, it appears the very definition of an iterative upgrade, and with the bleeding-edge iPhone X on the horizon and scads of Android phones that have had similar features for years, the 8 doesn't seem likely to carve out a lasting legacy for itself as some iPhones have.

But if you've got a lot invested in Apple's ecosystem (and you don't want to spend a thousand dollars on a phone for some reason) well, the iPhone 8 was made for you. Last week, I took a look at the smaller of the two phones in this generation, focusing on the camera, A11 processor, and wireless charging. Since then I've spent a lot more time with the iPhone 8 Plus, relishing its revised portrait mode and its stellar battery life while testing how well its conventional camera performance holds up to the Galaxy Note 8.
