    Battery life is awesome. Been off charger since 7 am and it’s almost 10pm 61%
    Listening to music on my way to work. Couple of Work calls checking not group me
    That’s great!
    I was already happy with the battery life of the 7 Plus, I can’t imagine how much better the 8 Plus is.

    For $150 I made the move from the 7+ to the 8+.. I do regret it a little. I do love the wireless charging, but other than that, I don't see much of a difference. Battery life on the 8+ is no better than the 7+. I actually think the 7+ battery was even better.

    I had the Red 7+ and to me it was the best Iphone ever (and I have had them all). I refuse to cross that $1000 threshold and will stay away from the 10. The 8+ is good but I think I was happier with the Red 7+...

    So to answer your question. I think that I would stay put unless you really love Wireless Charging

    I upgraded from 7 plus to 8 plus last week. There are significant differences between the phones.

    1. Download speeds are better
    2. Better low light camera performance for both photo and video.
    3. Slightly better sound quality from speakers and earphones.
    4. Slightly better color calibration for the screen, but that's very slight.
    5. I'm getting much better battery life out of the 8+ than with the 7.
    6. The phone doesn't get hot under heavy load, whereas the 7 did.

    Wireless charging is another plus if you use it.

    I used the 7 plus for only 2 weeks before getting the 8 plus.

    Since I have a Note 8 as well, I find the 8 plus to be more closer to the Note 8 in performance and quality than the 7.

    So, IMO, go for the 8 plus.

    i actually got the Mophie Wireless Charger at the Apple Store and I like having it, i just set my phone down and forget about it. My nightstand is a bit full, iPad Pro 12.9", iPhone 6 for work, Apple Watch 3 on a stand, not much room left.

    Yeah, I completely agree with you.
    It’s worth it for an extra $150.
    The speed, camera, and battery life is more than enough to upgrade IMO.

    I've used both. For $150 more with the iPhone 8 Plus you get wireless charging, better processor,
    better battery life and better resale value to make up the difference in price.

    I’ve been using the 8 Plus for almost a week now, and it’s definitely worth the $150. Battery life is superb (10-20% better than the X).
