    The 8 plus is thicker & heavier (glass), but you definitely HAVE to put a case on a glass back phone...

    That what I would have thought, but the Apple Store has the cases listed for both models

    It’s only .2mm thicker cases will work fine

    I got cases listed as being for the 7 Plus and 7 for our new 8 Plus and 8. Works fine. The case from our previous 6 fit the 8, but it covered the camera.

    All of my cases fit including my 3 Apple cases; however, the logo on the back of the phone has been repositioned so if your case has a cutout you may not like that it’s not centered.

    I bought a Amazon Basics clear iPhone 7 plus case for my iPhone 8 plus, I found the fitting to be quite tight also the power button was misaligned. The port opening was fine but speaker cut outs were cutting out the speakers a little bit, only the volume buttons though aligned well. Will be returning the case back to Amazon.

    My Apple one for my old 7+ fits my 8+ fine.
    But it’s a very tight fit

    The Otterbox cases fit. And yes, the Apple logo isn't centered in the back cutout. I don't care. :)

    Unless your case for the 7+ was vacuum sealed onto the phone, it should fit the 8+ without any issues (same for the 8). The thickness difference is 0.2mm, as stated above. There is virtually no distinguishable difference between the sizes of the devices.

    Save your cash if the difference is too small to tell. Might be really tight, as long it doesn't cause to push on the side buttons it is still good, some cases are not cheap either, some can be as high as $80 or more. That is why I said "save the cash" if it can still be used.

    Apple cases for the 7 are very tight on the 8. Maybe the Plus is fine, but not the regular 8.
