I am about to upgrade my 6
Is the 8 plus worth the extra $200-$300 price difference?
No way a heavy user ...if that makes a difference
Wouldn't you be better to try and jump to the x? Though if you're a 6 (not 6s) you're still making 4 jumps to an 8 I thought they were pretty similar in terms of CPU etc. But the 8 didn't have a 128gb option.

It pretty much comes down to how much storage you want,
Apple in its consummate slickness don't give you an "apples to apples" option ... ha ha
32GB 7+ $1069
64GB 8+ $1299
128GB 7+ 1269
256GB 8+ $1599

I went from a 6+ to an 8+ 64gb and don't regret it.
I would have liked to try the X, but to be honest, the screen is too small (I really like the big display).
In a year or 2 I'll be going for the Xs+ or whatever they have then.
I saw the Xs+ in PB tech and I really like it, but $2100 is a lot for the base model.
Personally I would be going for the 8+ over the 7+ model as it's likely the 8+ will be supported a year longer than the 7+ so you'll get a bit more life out of it.
Thats the logic I look at anyway.
scuwp: with Apple (or anything really) it pays to buy the latest model you can to ensure the longest possible use. Given you still have a 6 one would assume you are not someone that updates regularly so having something supported for a long time would be of value to you, yes? . Why buy something that’s nearly obsolete? The camera in the 8 is amazing.
The problem is that the battery possibly won't last the full life, so it will likely need an expensive repair to replace the battery after a few years. I just wish they had a cheaper way to replace it, rather than using a third party repairer. I tend to buy iphones that are a couple of generations old, because they are still fast, and last a few years due to ios support being 4-5 years now. Usually it is the battery that fails before anything else. Currently got the iphone 6s, which is a big step up from the 6, and still has headphone jack plus 3d touch. I would totally avoid the 7 for multiple reasons (it also isn't much faster than the 6s), and go for the 8 if buying new , although it is quite pricey when you compare it bang for buck with the XR, which is a new gen design and a year newer.
