Apple iPhone 8 Plus review blog: Over the next few days we will chronicle our life with the Apple iPhone 8 Plus as our primary phone, looking at various aspects of the phone.

As journalists from across the world trouped out of the Steve Jobs Theatre in the demo zone just outside as the Apple keynote ended, there was one clear trend: the lines were visibly longer for a hands-on with the Apple iPhone X in comparison to the iPhone 8 series.

But it is not that same and that is because instead of a metal back this one sports a glass rear. This design change is why Apple decided to called it iPhone 8 and not iPhone 7S. Also, the glass back is what lets this phone charge without wires.
