Our refurbished iPhone 8 Plus devices show minimal signs of wear. Our phones are backed by a one year warranty, all functions tested, minimum 90% battery health and a lifetime IMEI guarantee. Available for pickup at either of our Winnipeg stores, or shipping across Manitoba or Canada, rest assured you're buying from a trusted source.

 Please note that our devices do come fully charged, but do not include any accessories such as lightning cable, headphones or wall adapter. Most of our customers have these from previous devices and not including original accessories allows us to pass on the savings elsewhere, like guaranteeing a higher Battery Health percentage and better prices overall.  

How much does an iPhone 8 Plus cost in Canada?

The iPhone 8 Plus was a very popular device especially in the Canadian market. Despite it being released in 2017 the price point has not decreased as much as the iPhone 8 which was released in the same year. Larger 5.5” display iPhone models like these often hold their value longer, and that’s not only due to the screen size but in terms of the quality of the rear camera which is why many Canadians opted for this model over the regular 2017 Apple release. Mobile Tech Lab offers the most competitive pricing on certified pre-owned and refurbished. All our devices pass a 65-point functionality test and are sold with a lifetime IMEI guarantee against any blacklist in the future. Buying a phone off Kijiji or Facebook doesn’t offer this level of transparency, protection and trust for the buyer.

Is it worth buying an iPhone 8 Plus in 2020 or 2021?

The iPhone 8 Plus is almost an exact copy of the beloved iPhone 7 Plus with all of the upgrades the iPhone 8 boasts that have drawn customers in. You can expect the glass housing upgrades, battery and fast/wireless charging as well as the faster chip. This is the last larger form-factor 5.5' iPhone's with a classic haptic-feedback home button. Your next available option would be the iPhone X which has the revolutionary Face ID and an edge-to-edge OLED display. Considering your other options, this is a great choice that will still last years before being deprecated and offers speed and flexibility. The best feature of the 8 Plus according to most polled users would be the Portrait mode rear facing camera which boasts 12MP camera capability. This produces amazing photos at a fraction of the price of an iPhone X or higher - more than good enough to immediately post to Instagram or LinkedIn.

How much is the iPhone 8 Plus now?

The iPhone 8 Plus is currently priced at $399 for a certified pre-owned device with minimal signs of wear. As with all refurbished devices this does drop over time, as new devices are released but as previously mentioned the 8 Plus always lags behind the original iPhone 8 with price regression as the larger screen and improvements in rear camera quality is perceived as higher value. If you like the larger screen size and really appreciate a good camera without the need to go without a home button, the iPhone 8 Plus is a great phone at a very competitive price. As this is simply an upgraded option to the 7 Plus there are no crazy price fluctuations. You can expect the price to slowly drop as new models are released. Battery life is always an issue, but you can rest assured that all the devices we sell are PhoneChecked and have healthy batteries, with a minimum of 90%.

Is iPhone 8 Plus discontinued?

As of the end of 2020 and 2021 the iPhone 8 Plus is not discontinued and available at Apple Stores across Canada. The current version of Apple iOS is 14.4.1 and the 8 Plus is currently fully supported, and we don’t expect it to be deprecated and no longer supported for at least two years.
