When people eagerly anticipate the arrival of Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone, it is for a right reason. As such, many of them still do not know whether to choose it or its other supposedly more powerful sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Depending on your budget, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is obviously more expensive but it also offers even more impressive features that will take your breath away.
With its ridiculously huge 6.2-inch display screen, it emerges easily as the best big Android smartphone that you can buy and own. When it comes to VR experience, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is your ticket to most cutting-edge smartphones with VR-ready capabilities. In fact, its design is what Samsung fans have been wanted for several years as Samsung incorporates its Infinity Display element in a nearly bezel-less front face. This all-screen smartphone also offers a more viewable screen in terms of size without the need to increase its own size. Needless to say, you will be treated to such a tantalizing viewing experience that is further enhanced by its huge display screen.
Despite its large screen, it is actually surprisingly lighter than other premium flagship smartphones with smaller display screens. Furthermore, this huge Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is also protected against the elements with its IP68 rating. Overall, you can be confident that this Samsung smartphone is certainly worth the investment.
Galaxy S8+ - 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 Galaxy S8+ is the epitome of Samsung’s smartphone excellence. With its impressive set of specifications, the Galaxy S8+ is one of the phones to beat today.
Design-wise, the Galaxy S8+ 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 S8+ 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 certify 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 S8+ is an absolute must-have for you.
The S8+ also lives up to its flagship tag when it comes to performance. The phone is equipped with the speedy Exynos 8895 chipset with 4GB internal storage 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 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 Galaxy S8+ 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.
