Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Review

Rating - 5 / 5

It's time for a change, Samsung goes big with its new smartphone, if you are looking for a large screen then you have got one right here, 6.2 inches worth of screen, compared to the standard S8 version of 5.7 inches.

Covering the specs and main features.


Phones will never be the same..

Galaxy S8 Plus Design

For several releases of the #nextgalaxy, rumours have been of a smartphone with no home button, the design of the new Galaxy phone brings just that, a beautifully designed body the has a clean look with a virtual edge to edge display, with a very slight curve to add to the view experience of this large screen Android phone.

A shaded bottom area of the screen houses the buttons which creates a view of a much bigger screen size than the 6.2 inches that's there.

Just above the screen on the upper front part of the housing are the sensors and the dual camera with flash, set either side of the earpiece, with the edged screen we got used to in the S7 Edge review looking great on this size screen.

Apart from that, there is not much difference in the look of the Samsung flagship phone compared to last years, may be a completely new design is being planned for the Samsung Galaxy S9, which rumours will be starting as soon as the S8 hits the shelves.

The importance of water resistance and the IP68 rating for customers is imperative now, at one point there was only the old phone that was seen as waterproof and that is still the case as the water resistance levels are improving, the number of phones arriving with the resistance continues, the swimming pool on holiday is a major concern for any smartphone user, with contract phone deals there are lengthy periods of waiting until you get a new free phone, so the thought is always there of any resistance to any water, LG have already confirmed that their new flagship will come with water resistance but not what level it will be, as the LG G6 price UK is yet to be confirmed at the time of writing, how these 2 phones will go against each other and the iPhone 7s water resistance levels is another thing.

Infinity Display

The Infinity Display sets a new standard for uninterrupted, immersive experiences. It enables an expanded screen size without necessitating a larger phone. So while the view is grander, Galaxy S8 and S8+ feel small in your hand, making them easy to hold and use.
