    Multiple youtube videos tell a different story. The 8 Plus seems to trail the X and multiple other Android flagships.
    YouTube videos could demonstrate everything... even Apple is saying the 8 Plus has a better battery life than X.

    Holds true with the iPhone X. Not much so with the 8 Plus. Sad the the 8 Plus has the worse battery life since it is pushing suck a low res LCD screen. No phone should have a 1080P LCD screen in 2017 unless it is a budget phone.
    Low res ? 1080P on a 5.5” screen ? Are you for real ?

    Wow... two high end iPhone!

    Yes I am for real. Unacceptable.

    1080P, using a REAL RGB matrix (and not that joke of a PenTile matrix) is more than your eyes can discern.
    SO you’re just a marketing victim.

    Marketing victim would be anybody using an 8 Plus in 2018 which is basically the same damn phone as the 7Plus. I left 1080P about 3 years ago on my Android phones. Had to deal with this mess since then with my iPhones. Actually less than 1080P because i always used the non-plus models due to me refusing to carry a phone the size models. There is no way in the world that a 5.5" phone to be that huge. Almost laughable. It was acceptable in 2014. Not much so nowadays. I can see the difference as well as others. The text is much sharper.

    I’m happy to hear you were able to figure out the causes of the headaches that you were experiencing. You can now enjoy your X!!
    Thanks. It was a relief because I know there are a small subset of X users out there who struggle using their new device because of how the screen effects them.

    You can’t see any difference if you are not Superman.
    BTW iPhone 8 basically is the best smartphone on the market (only the X is marginally superior, if you like the form factor) and runs circles around the Android crapware out there.
    iPhone 8 Plus LCD is the best on the market, better than 95% of the displays out there (including OLEDs).
    Basically only the S8 , Note 8 and X screens are marginally better (but they are OLED, so they will degrade over the time).

    The 8 plus is far from being the best smartphone. As for 1080P, looks like crap fro VR and is not recommended. Long story short, the 8 Plus is a dinosaur and a mid-range phone at best.

    It might look dated, but IMO it’s definitely not a mid range phone

    I am using both at the moment, I got my 8 plus 256 for half of what I paid for my X64gb and it was only 10 days old.
    I could sell the X and pocket at least $400.
    It’s a toss up as there is for and against for both phones.

    I'm late to the party, but I finally bought the 8 Plus as soon as my 6s was paid off. I thought it was going to be too big, but I absolutely love it. So far, battery life is amazing - my 6s never had battery life this long, even when new. Now to look at cases.

    Joined Team 8 Plus last week.
    Had a 7 Plus for about a year.
    Went to the VZ store to get my wife a 7 Plus.
    Due to a promo they had, ended up with two 8 Plus 256GB.
    My monthly bill is $20 cheaper than it would have been by keeping my 7 Plus & getting my wife a 7 Plus.
    Go figure.

    Officially of a few minutes ago me bit into the 8+ Team. Was going to get the 8 Plus at Xfinity store tomorrow. But saw a better price on ebay. The phone has a has a bad ESN but, I use the phones I purchase for internet only. Use Magic Jack so do not need a phone service. Also the phone is listed as having scratches . But the buyer has some great photographs of the phone where I did not see any majour scratches on the front or back. Seller has a 100% positive feedback.

    8 Plus 256 GB interesting this is listed as a Xfinity phone.

    Not bad for less than 700.00 dollars.

    The price includes the phone (of course), original box, charger, and head phones. The light scratches seen in the photograph where the phone is off do not show up when the phone is on.

    I am an 8 Plus owner, I had the X for approximately 24 hours and could not wait to return the phone and get the 8 Plus. The X is not a bad phone but I like the touch ID over the facial recognition. I was not thrilled with the gestures on the X. I am sure I could have gotten use to all of it but for the price tag there was not enough for me to justify the additional expense.
