From the front, we have... an iPhone. Except for the new color, the 8 Plus looks about the same as a 6 Plus from 2014.
Flip it over and one new feature really shines. That glossy glass back serves two purposes: wireless charging, and doubled crackability—the likes of which iPhones haven't seen since the 4s.
Of course, Samsung's flagship phones adopted the glass sandwich design starting with the S6, and it comes with similar trade-offs.
In a great victory for Apple Chief Design Officers everywhere, the model number has been erased from the back panel. Fumbling for the box, we see that our 8 Plus is A1864 (an iPhone 8 plus one).
