    I’ll be honest. I’m very underwhelmed. I’ll likely be returning. This one is very heavy. Found out it’s 10% heavier than 7 plus.

    It looks good!
    10%? That’s a bit too much.

    It's something like 7.5%, actually. I don't think most people could tell, at least without holding both phones at the same time -- and even then I don't think many would notice a difference.

    The Plus would be perfect if it had less bezels.

    I can’t tell that it’s any heavier then my 7+. I also have a pretty protective case on it so it adds some weight.

    Yikes!!!! That totally validated my decision to get the 8.

    Whether it’s 7.5% or 10%, that’s a lot when you carry 2 phones. I was carrying a 6S Plus & a 7 Plus & although I love the screen, they just became too cumbersome. Loving my 8 & I’m sure it’ll be a perfect combo with the X, since it also had a smaller form factor.

    I could tell right away. That’s why I looked it up. On a smart phone, every bit it noticeable. 7 plus is 6.63 oz and iPhone 8 plus is 7.13 Oz.

    If you have a 7 plus, not sure it’s worth the money. I’m definitely going X. iPhone 8 plus will not be my phone for the next year.

    7.13 oz! That’s almost 1/2 a pound! Da hell

    Don’t jump in a lake with this phone. You will go straight to the bottom. My s8 plus that is 6.2” is just 6.1 oz. 1 full ounce less than the 8 plus. And trust me, that 1 single ounce is very noticeable. Especially when holding the phone up a lot.

    I carry 2 phones. The 6s Plus has already been replaced with the 8 & the 7 Plus will be replaced with the X. I’m over the heft of the pluses & you saying the 8 Plus is even heavier just validates my downsizing.

    I got my 8 Plus Space Grey delivered Friday and I noticed right away it was little bit heavier than my 7 Plus...but I love the phone...I will put a Apple silicone case on it even though I love the look of the glass and don't want to cover it up, but I better to be safe. I've had white face plates for several years and was ready for a dark phone this time....Space Grey is a beautiful phone.

    Same here. I switch between a white face and black face yearly so I went with space gray this year. To be honest, I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to a white face. I’ve fallen in love with the front and back. I’m gonna go pick up an Apple silicone case later.

    I saw that one in the Apple Store when I picked up my watch, that is quite the color. I can see why it is so popular. Maybe if you get tired of running naked.
