The release of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were possibly the most comforting release ever. Sure, the iPhone X’s changes are insanely cool — but a huge part of Team Apple was intimidated by the thought of making the leap to such a fancy spaceship phone. (An iPhone without a home button? What is this blasphemy?)
For those still stuck with an iPhone 6 or 7 but who aren’t ready to convert to the X, the iPhone 8 is the perfect middle ground. The 8 features a gorgeous glass back (compared to the previous aluminum of the 7), a better camera with faster shutter speeds, and our beloved portrait mode. You’re also getting updated speakers and wireless charging — all while still enjoying the beloved home button and touch ID. And everyone knows that having the bigger Plus immediately feels fancier.
However, the Plus is the largest, heaviest iPhone, making it the hardest to grab and easiest to drop. That huge, tablet-like screen is dope, but these bad boys require a case.
There are an overwhelming amount of iPhone 8 Plus cases to choose from. Like, so many that you’d almost rather risk it than sit down and search through pages of options.
