Should you Pick iPhone 8 Plus in Kuwait? Considering the Price – 2022

Let’s find out!

The iPhone 8 plus has been out for quite a few years now. It is the last large phone to have a touch id on it. So I wanted to help you decide if you should pick one up in 2022 in Kuwait?

Body and Design of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

The first thing is the design. This design has been around for years. It’s no longer the new design. The iPhone 12  series makes the edges flat again like the iPhone 5. But it does have those nice curved edges that a lot of people really like. It’s made out of aluminum and the aluminum actually holds up pretty well. It depends on if you have it in the case or not. As we go around the outside edge I do have a little bit of a nick there in the upper left. That’s just due to normal wear. Maybe bumping it into something. The outside seems to have held up really well.

It’s got the same familiar layout with your power button, sleep-wake button on the right of your sim card tray, and then your speakers on the bottom. They’re symmetrical on the iPhone 8  plus which is really nice. With your speaker and your microphone your lightning port and then your volume buttons and silent switch on the left of course. 

Then you have a speaker at the top so you do get that stereo sound. I’ll talk more about that in a moment. 

As far as the front and back they are glass. So you do have a substantial feel for the phone. It’s heavy. It’s a nice size and the glass on the back seems to hold up well. But it does get a   lot of fingerprints on it. So you do have that.

Then, of course, your dual cameras and now as far as to touch id it’s nice and fasts it works well. A lot of people still prefer touch id so that’s great about this phone. If you don’t like face id, of course, if you’re wearing a mask this makes it very easy. Just take it out of your pocket pick it up, put your finger down it unlocks right away. It’s really nice and fast.

Also, this display seems to hold up really well to scratches. You can see it does have some fingerprints on it. It does get fingerprints fairly easily. But it doesn’t seem to have scratches.

Over the years now I have not used a screen protector on it. I did use this phone full time for quite some time and I really like it.

When it’s not in use or when it is in use I use a leather case. It’s an apple leather case that’s held up well and helped to prevent scratches. Although it’s never been dropped the case is held up really well. The phone in general is just a really solid phone. 

I think it’s very durable. Works well and of course, has a large display.

In terms of Body and Design, iPhone 8 Plus Price in Kuwait is Justified.

Display of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

The display is  5.5 inches and it’s 1080p at a higher resolution. As far as the overall resolution and pixel density of that of the iPhone 11 or Xr for example.

So you have a 1080p display with 401 pixels per inch and you also get dark mode with ios 15. But you get things like true tone if you enjoy using that. If you want to have whites to be more proper, I generally turn the true tone off. As I want the whites to be as accurate and the colors to be as accurate as possible.

It is p3 compatible which is really nice.

Now with this display, you do have 1080p as I said so. That means you can watch 1080p youtube videos. One thing you don’t get is hdr.

We’re getting 1080p which is the resolution of the display. It looks great you can’t see the pixels because it’s over 400 pixels per inch. However, you don’t get HDR as an option either.

You just don’t have the hdr option where you would have it on say the newer iPhones or an iPhone 11 for example you get hdr. So that’s one of the disadvantages of this display compared to the newer displays.

However, there’s a big reason to choose this display over say the 12 pro max. It’s an OLED display. The OLED display while it’s more vibrant and looks nice. One of the things is it has PWM and I’ve talked about this at length in the past. But what you have is the display on the 12 pro or any OLED display iPhone or many other OLED displays flickers their display to control brightness. It’s just the way the display works. 

The iPhone 8 plus is an LCD display and doesn’t need to do that to control brightness. So as you bring the brightness up and down it’s actually making the screen flash faster and slower on an OLED. Where you have a constant backlight on the iPhone 8 plus and that helps reduce eye strain. One in ten people including myself is susceptible to say feeling nauseated or getting headaches just from the display blinking.

When we can see things like faster frame rates or the frame refresh rate is faster it’s just something that seems to bother about one in ten people. It’s definitely nice to use an iPhone 8 plus with less eye strain. It’s just something that I personally like better about it.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the LCD option on the newer ones. But we do have it on the eight-plus and that may be a reason to get this phone.

Price of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

Along with the touch id now as far as price with this phone. Well, you can get this phone for about KWD 100 for the 256-gigabyte variant refurbished. New you can find it around KWD 169.900.

But Apple does not sell this new anymore so you could pick one up for KWD 100.

I think that’s a decent deal for what it is. You can find those on different websites from time to time. Different third-party websites sometimes sell used things like that for around that price.

I think it makes it a really good value for what it is with that amount of storage.

Speakers of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

As far as the speakers go, the overall speaker quality is quite good and goes nice and loud.

You have a nice even stereo sound from the top speaker to the bottom speaker. It is nice and clear as well. Except for at the very highest volumes. Where you want to back it off just a little bit to clear things up.

Performance of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

The overall speed it’s nice and fast. It stutters there just a little bit but that’s because my phone is just loaded with stuff. But generally using this going between different applications even though it only has three gigs of ram it doesn’t seem to have an issue. The ram management is great here. The   a11 bionic that’s inside the 8 plus is the same processor that we have with the iPhone 10. Generally, games and things like that are going to be nice and fast.

You really won’t see too much of a difference between this and say a newer phone with loading games or playing games. They should be nice and smooth whether it be Minecraft or among us or call of duty. 

When I load Call of Duty mobile it’s loaded and then frame rates are nice and smooth. I got up to 60 frames per second. The gameplay will work just fine no issues here whatsoever. It’s nice and smooth. It loaded well. I can play this without an issue.

Software of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

It will get updates for about three years or more at this point. I   think based on what we’ve seen with ios 15 and iPhone 6s plus for example.

So I would expect up to iOS 17 maybe iOS 18 with the iPhone 8 plus. We should be getting updates with this for years.

It does feel a little bit slower with certain tasks compared to the iPhone 12 pro max. If you’re scrolling from time to time you may see some smoothness differences. You may see some speed differences when going into different applications and going out. 

But mostly the experience is quite fast in general. So I wouldn’t really have any issue recommending this to someone as far as the speed.

Cameras of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

When it comes to the cameras. This is where they fall a little bit short compared to the newer phones. We’ve got the forward-facing camera which can basically record HD resolution and 30 frames per second. You don’t have 4k on the forward-facing camera.

The recorded video is just not as good as what we get with the hdr video capabilities of the newer phones. The camera is decent but it’s not amazing.

The rear-facing camera does do 4k 60 and if we go to the settings we can change the options to 4k/60 fps nice and fast. The video recorded from the rear camera is nice and clear. It looks pretty good. it’s not incredible but it’s quite good. 

It just doesn’t have the hdr capability of the newer phones. Photos are decent. I think if you’re happy with having a little bit older phone you’ll be happy with the photos. 

In general, the camera is more than good enough. You also have the zoom camera as well. So you have the option to go to 2x.   Although I wouldn’t say that’s a reason to pick this phone up. 2x is decent but it’s not amazing.

Battery Life of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

Now of course a major concern with a phone that’s a little bit older is, what the battery life is?

Like even with the newest ios 15 updates.

Battery life in general is going to get you about five to six hours of screen on time depending on how you use your phone. This phone is a few years old and it’s got 97 of its battery health left after two years of regular use. You can expect this to be down to around eighty percent. Where you might need to replace the battery for about 20 to 30 Kuwaiti Dinars if you have it done at apple. 

However, the overall battery life is going to vary from person to person. I asked a few people to send me their battery life stats. Result from someone that’s been using the iPhone 8 plus full time and they’re down to  87 percent of their battery health. They are getting a battery life of about 10 hours and 25 minutes of screen time. It was charged an hour ago based on the photo I have. So maybe charging it throughout the day they’re getting about five hours of screen on time. the next person’s screenshot is getting about five hours and 57 minutes of screen time. It’s going to vary greatly. So you can see about five to six hours of screen on time with regular use.

Now with the iPhone 8 plus because it has a glass back this is when apple introduced wireless charging. You can even use the latest MagSafe charger. You won’t get the magnetic adherence to it.  Although it does stick a little bit because there are metal coils in there. It does charge it will charge at about 7.5 watts.

You do get fast charging if you have the right power brick to do that. You’ll get about 50 percent of your battery in about 30 minutes or so. 

So it’s a decent battery. It charges fairly quickly if you’re using fast charging devices or fast charging plugs. But if you’re not of course it will charge a little bit slower and it’s not too big of a deal.

In terms of Battery Life, iPhone 8 Plus Price in Kuwait is not Justified.

Reception and Call Quality of iPhone 8 Plus in 2022

Talking about the reception.  The reception on the iPhone 8 plus is actually quite good. With my iPhone 12 pro max, I don’t get a full signal in my office where I’m at now. I do with this device. It’s also great with wi-fi but you don’t have 5g. Overall speeds are decent with 4g. 

4g speeds are what you would expect. It depends of course greatly where you’re located. To get the overall idea of 4g speeds, I ran a quick speed test. We’re hitting over 70 Mbps. So that’s quite good with 4g. It just depends where you’re located but the reception overall on an iPhone 8 plus is generally quite good compared to even an iPhone 10. I’m not sure if it’s the stainless steel versus the aluminum frame of the iPhone 8 plus. 

That makes the difference. But this frame seems to handle reception quite well. I’ve never had an issue with it. 

As far as that goes I never had any issues switching between 4g and wi-fi with the 8 plus. It’s a solid phone as far as reception goes.

CONCLUSION

Now that leads me to, should you still pick up an iPhone 8 plus in 2022 in Kuwait? 

I would say if touch id is something you still really value and you prefer it over face id. If you want a larger display well then absolutely. The display is great. It’s 401 pixels per inch and of course, it doesn’t have PWM as I mentioned earlier. So you won’t have the flickering display.

If that’s something that bothers your eyes you’ll have the benefit of that along with touch id so those two things alone. I know a lot of people really appreciate and will pick one of these up just for that reason.

Of course, if you want face id well then you’ll have to go to an iPhone 11. If you need an LCD display. But this is probably the best touch id phone out there that’s large at this point. You do have the iPhone SE second generation but that’s a smaller phone. 

So if you want the latest processor and want updates for the next five years, then of course you could go that route as well. The major disadvantage that you get with this phone other than what I’ve already mentioned would be its battery.

Battery life is just not what you get with say a 12 pro max where you’re going to get 10 to 12 hours of screen on time. As opposed to five or six with the iPhone 8 plus. So that’s a big difference between both phones.

But the price you could buy three or four of these for the price of a 12 pro max. So you could buy an eight-plus with a battery pack to extend that battery life if that was the issue. 

If you don’t mind not having the top-of-the-line phone. You want something that will get you by for the next few years with updates and of course battery isn’t a concern. 

Then I definitely recommend the 8 plus to anyone looking for a phone with a touch id. This is a great value especially now. I think it’s fairly durable and a great way to go.
