If you buy a product through our website we sometimes earn commission. You can find out more on our About page.

We always aim to provide accurate information but if there’s anything we’ve missed then please get in touch and let us know.

We aim to display as many tariffs available on the market as possible, depending on the data available to mobile-phones.co.uk. Legacy tariffs are excluded as well as some more granular tariff information such as international out of bundle rates.

We aim to display as many existing customer tariffs as possible, depending on the data available to mobile-phones.co.uk. Existing customers should check with their current provider for additional customer tariffs.

We aim to display as many promotional extras with tariffs as possible, depending on the data available to mobile-phones.co.uk. Some promotional extras may not be displayed.

If a discount is offered on a tariff, we would include this in the tariff pricing structure. Some promotional extras such as a free device or upfront credit usually happens automatically once a customer purchases an applicable tariff. However, sometimes you will need to apply to receive the promotional extra after you have purchased the tariff. The supplier will be able to inform you of their process regarding promotional extras.

Tariffs featuring 'unlimited' allowances may be subject to traffic management or fair usage policies. Please see our guide for more information on how this works.

SIM only deals are limited to 30 day or longer, excluding shorter plans and 'Pay as you go' tariffs.

All prices shown are inclusive of VAT.

Prices shown are based on the assumption a user will not exceed their inclusive allowance. Costs for additional out-of-allowance usage are provided for information only.

If you choose to pay via a method other than direct debit or you would like itemised or paper billing, you may incur additional charges to those displayed on mobile-phones.co.uk.

A supplier may increase the price during your contract, but if this is excessive you should be able to exit without penalty. Ofcom has more information on how to complain about your provider and comparative information on complaints handling.

Is the Apple iPhone 8 Plus your next phone?

Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus is a masterclass in design, offering powerful technology combined with a look that you’ll want to show off. The improved camera alongside the A11 Bionic chip make is a powerhouse in performance and style.

Contract, PAYG or SIM Only? 

The iPhone 8 Plus is the brand new smartphone from Apple - meaning it demands a premium price no matter how you get it. Buying it outright from Apple will cost you £799, which is obviously expensive if you want to buy the phone upfront and use it with a SIM only contract. Most will instead want to opt for getting the phone as part of a contract with an operator, as you’ll be able to cover the cost of the phone, texts, minutes and mobile data in one handy monthly cost. Most operators will ask for an upfront payment, but this is rarely over £100 so is therefore a much cheaper option.

Display

The iPhone 8 Plus features a stunning 5.5-inch Retina HD Display, much like the previous version of the iPhone. What’s different this time is the improvements that Apple has made to the screen that made the the iPhone so compelling in the first place. True Tone gives an improved viewing experience by using a light sensor to change the white balance as the light around you changes, reducing eye strain as you’re reading.

The iPhone 8 Plus also features the best colour accuracy on an iPhone ever, making colours lifelike and offering a high contrast on all the media you have on your phone. This makes viewing photos, watching movies, playing games and reading articles better and more visually impressive than ever before.

Camera

The camera is one of the best reasons to choose the iPhone 8 Plus over the standard iPhone 8. The Plus features a dual-camera system, offering 2 12-megapixel lenses that open up a whole new range of photo opportunities when you’re taking shots on the move. The 2 cameras means that zooming is improved, allowing you to zoom further without compromising on photo quality.

Portrait mode also allows you to take photos with far more depth than the standard iPhone 8. Using this, you can give your subject sharper detail whilst keeping the background blurred as well as utilise face detection to give your photos the best conditions even before you take them.

Design

The iPhone 8 Plus has been designed from the ground up to be one of the most stylish phones on the market. Whilst the phone takes the classic rounded design of the iPhone 7, it has a number of additions that make it well worth the upgrade. The biggest of these is the glass backing, which harkens to the very popular iPhone 4 and gives the phone a premium feel. Despite the use of glass, the 8 Plus is still very sturdy and durable.

The glass backing also allows for the new wireless charging feature - a first for the iPhone. Users will be able to charge their iPhone wirelessly for the first time, and using Apple’s wireless charger, can also charge their Apple Watch and Air Buds simultaneously. 

Performance

The iPhone 8 Plus is the most powerful iPhone yet (at least for a few more months) and this is down to the new A11 Bionic chip that Apple has utilised to create a smoother and more impressive experience. Users can enjoy up to 70% more efficiency when using their phone for day-to-day tasks, with the chip using more or less power depending on what you’re doing. 

The new processor is also up to 30% faster than that found in the iPhone 7 Plus, meaning you’ll have all the speed you need for the latest high-powered games. You’ll also be able to use the new Augmented Reality technology which allows for new and exciting AR games and experiences.

Features & OS

The 8 Plus comes side-by-side with the new iOS 11. This versatile mobile OS is more user-friendly than ever before, with enhanced features that allow users to get the most from their iPhone. This includes an improved version of Siri, which can now open apps for you and even play music. Apple Music also has a more social layout, allowing you to keep up with what your friends are listening to. 

iOS 11 also improves upon Apple’s multitasking system, giving users a faster and easier experience. The new control centre allows for more to be customised, so you can get to your notifications faster. You can also use the improved 3D touch, which allows you to access app features in new and interesting ways.

What we think

The iPhone 8 Plus is one of the nicest phablet devices on the market, giving you a premium, modern design mixed in with a powerful processor, one of the best cameras on a smartphone and a mobile OS that beats the rest.
