The Galaxy S8+ masterfully combines function and form in a way no other phone company has yet been able to achieve.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the larger version of Samsung’s latest release. However, apart from size, it shares many similarities with it’s smaller sibling.
Key differences include:
- A larger 6.2-inch 1440-by-2960 display
- A larger 3500mAh battery
Reviewers found that the display still looks sharp and vibrant even though the resolution is still the same. Engadget says, “For the people in search of buying advice, here's all you need to know about the S8 and S8 Plus's screens: They're awesome.”
Battery life for the S8 is stellar. Stuff TV notes, “It managed over 12 hours of streaming video playback, and easily lasted a full day of heavy use - including wireless music streaming to a pair of Bluetooth headphones, snapping photos and far too much time spent scrolling through Facebook.”

That will be a sure fire recommendation, but it’s harder to be so definite with this year&... Full review
King of the hill
Class leading design, but software is still a problem
Perform extremely well putting out some of the best numbers we've seen
Stunning to look at and an all-round winner
Delivers a spec sheet arguing for that price tag
Bigger and even more beautiful than the S8
In essence, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the same phone as the S8, with all the things that make that phone great, but with a bigger screen, a bigger battery, a more unwieldy profile and a higher price. s it any better, though? In my view, the answer to that question has to be no, and that’s mainly due to the 6.2in Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus’ size: it’s just one step too far. Although it isn’t over-wide, it’s too tall and although I’d be happy to carry around the regular Samsung Galaxy S8 in my pocket day to day, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus doesn’t... Full review
