    Is the 8 plus worth $240 more than the 7 plus? Basically, how big of a difference is there between the two on the basis of performance, quality, function, etc.?

    Off the top of my head:
    The 7+ uses the same cpu as the straight 7
    The 8+ uses a faster cpu than the straight 8

    So the 8+ is 1.5 to 2 cpu models over the 7+

    An 8+ is 23% faster in Geekbench's single-core benchmark, and 76% faster in their multi-core benchmark.
    I believe there are also significant improvements to the camera in that generation.

    I can’t figure out why I thought the 8+ had a faster cpu. Google doesn’t agree either.

    Thanks. I had to make a decision so I went with the 8 Plus. Now I need to sell my 6s or else I can't pay next month's bills, lol.
