I started using a work provided iPhone 8 recently, side by side to my personal iPhone 7 Plus. I opted for a golden iPhone 8 and I love that look on the glass back. In terms of prettiness I so much prefer the iPhone 8 to the 7 Plus. It’s a much less finger print magnet too. I think it’s my fingers – they sweat – so the back of the iPhone 7 Plus gets all sweaty after a while of use. But no such issues with the iPhone 8.
I don’t think I’ll ever buy a personal non Plus size phone though. I don’t use the portrait mode much but I miss the dual lens on the Plus when I take pics with the iPhone 8. And the size of the Plus is convenient for typing and watching movies. I notice that I tend to use the iPhone 8 more as a phone or checking work emails or browsing something which quickly, but long term I prefer the iPhone 7 Plus for the size.
Here’s a nice (personal opinion!) pic I took with the iPhone 7 Plus in portrait mode now. That’s what prompted this post.
In other news I have purchased a TORRO case for the iPhone 7 Plus. They look so good! It was an impulse purchase and I hope to get it tomorrow.
