Is the S8+ all that?
The amazing display, great camera and slick software should make you forget about the awkwardly placed fingerprint scanner and the half-bake Bixby assistant.
Moreover, owning this new Android means you’re upgrading to the most cutting-edge, VR-ready smartphone available. Having the absolute best camera and best display matter to you.
It’s a glimpse of the future and, in a twist of fate for Samsung vs Apple, a lot of what we expect from the iPhone 8 based on recent leaks and speculation. In 2017, Samsung continues to be the smartphone trendsetter.
Obviously, the Galaxy S8 Plus isn’t the perfect phone for everyone, and for more reasons than ‘it’s too tall for people with small hands.’ Having no physical home button is going to be a deal-breaker for some Samsung fans and their muscle memory.
The pros include:
Stunning design Big screen, acceptable phone size Best camera on a smartphone Slick software and performance
And the cons:
Your most expensive phone yet (around £800) Bixby remains useless Generally bad fingerprint scanner
You’re looking at a 6.2-inch display that far and away makes it the best big Android phone you can buy – if you can handle it. The ‘smaller’ 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 exists if you can’t, says reviewer Matt Swider.
If you’re yet to decide between the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8+, then there’s only one thing you need consider: how big do you want your phone?
For most people, the smaller 5.5-inch S8 will be best. It’s more manageable in one hand, and will comfortably fit in your pocket. But if you’re accustomed to larger handsets such as the iPhone 7 Plus, Google Pixel XL or Nexus 6P then the S8+ is considered ideal.
According to Trusted Reviews, the S8+ is a masterclass in engineering and performance, and comfortably the finest big smartphone you can buy right now.
