If you want a bigger screen, you have the choice of the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. Here you will have to weigh up the high price of the iPhone X against the bigger and heavier handset of the iPhone 8 Plus.
If you are not keen on the idea of a large handset you have the choice of two phones, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X. These two iPhone models are smaller and lighter than the iPhone Plus models.
