Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Review - The Plus-Size Smartphone You Desire
Samsung has always been known for producing top-quality smartphones, especially when it comes to its flagship handsets. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the epitome of the brand’s smartphone excellence. With its impressive set of specifications, the Samsung S8 Plus is one of the phones to beat today.
Design-wise, the Samsung S8 Plus looks exactly like the Galaxy S8, with the only difference being the size between the two devices. The former is 10.6mm taller, 5.3mm wider, 0.1mm thicker, and 18g heavier than the S8. Its Infinity Display gives you more screen real estate as the handset has a screen-to-body ratio of 83% which is higher than many other smartphones available in the market today. Samsung is able to fit a 6.2-inch display screen onto the handset while making the phone too big for comfortable handling.
If you have used a Samsung flagship before, then you will know that they have excellent displays. The Samsung S8 Plus sports one of the best displays today, featuring an AMOLED panel with a 2960p x 1440p resolution. It is the only phone so far to have received a “Mobile HDR Premium” certification from the same UHD Alliance that certifies HDR TVs. As the handset has an AMOLED display, the colour reproduction is amazing. The screen displays the deepest black and other colours are produced without being oversaturated. If you enjoy gaming and watching movies on your smartphone, then the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is an absolute must-have for you.
The Samsung S8 Plus also lives up to its flagship tag when it comes to performance. The phone is equipped with the speedy Exynos 8895 chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB worth of internal storage. The performance is further enhanced with the user interface and operating system that comes with the phone. Running on the Android 7.0 Nougat operated system ensures that the smartphone provides a smooth performance to users. The improved version of Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface – now renamed as Samsung Experience – is easy to navigate.
Apart from the overall size, another significant difference between the two S8 flagships is the battery. The 3,5000mAh cell in the Samsung S8 Plus provides enough power for the phone to last through the day easily. The phone also has multiple power-saving modes to offer in case you want to eke out more juice from the device.
