Samsung Galaxy S8+: Still a really great choice | Trusted Reviews

 

Samsung Galaxy S8+ review: An amazing phablet for those who want something bigger than the S8.

Stunning design ; Great software experience ; Camera is reliable in any light ; The best screen on any phone

Bixby remains useless ; Generally bad fingerprint scanner

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus review: Redemption is here

 

All of the S8's accolades apply to the S8 Plus as well: It's a stellar performer that aptly blends beauty and horsepower. Its bigger body, however, means Samsung was able to squeeze a larger battery inside. Couple that with a surprisingly comfortable,...

Incredible fit and finish ; Samsung’s interface feels more polished ; Comfortable to hold ; Strong performance

Bixby isn’t ready for prime time ; Cameras aren’t hugely improved ; Fingerprint sensor placement is weird

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus aren't perfect, but they're as close as Samsung has ever gotten. That's a hell of a rebound for a company whose phablets... well, you know. Beyond the gorgeous design and the boost in horsepower, they feel like devices built...

Galaxy S8 Plus is a 'cheaper' big-phone boss

 

If you can find it for a discount, it's a cheaper way than the Galaxy S9 Plus to satisfy your hunger for a high-powered phone.

The Galaxy S8 Plus is a big phone that manages to make a 6.2-inch screen look graceful, even alongside the more current Galaxy S9 Plus.

You'll have to reach higher to get to the fingerprint sensor on the back -- a straight day of this gets annoying.

Lovers of big phones will find this a slightly cheaper alternative to the Galaxy S9 Plus that doesn't sacrifice that phone's sleek design and most important features.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review

 

If you believe that more screen equals better screen, you're in luck. The Galaxy S8 Plus is exactly the Galaxy S8 with a larger display: 6.2 inches instead of 5.8.

The Galaxy S8 Plus is a big phone that manages to make a 6.2-inch screen look graceful. It has every hardware and software advantage of the ultrasleek, curved Galaxy S8, including long battery life.

You'll have to reach higher to get to the fingerprint sensor on the back -- a straight day of this gets annoying.

Lovers of big phones won't find a prettier device with a larger screen anywhere else, but you'll want to make sure it isn't too tall for you, and the fingerprint reader too hard to reach, before you commit.

Galaxy S8+ review: 2017’s best phone but even that screen can’t make up for a few flaws

 

It comes at a price, but it's hard to ignore just how superb the 6.2-inch WQHD+ display really is

Brilliant 6.2-inch display ; Blazing fast performance ; Bluetooth 5/dual audio

Rear fingerprint reader placement ; Bixby needs to differentiate ; Face recognition hit and miss

Samsung Galaxy S8+ review

 

The Galaxy S8+ is one of the best-looking and most desirable Android phones around...

Outstanding design and build quality ; Impressive screen quality ; Fast performance ; Expandable memory ; Great camera

Sound quality lags slight behind iPhone 7 Plus ; Awkwardly placed fingerprint sensor

A terrific phone that's a pleasure to use

Samsung Galaxy S8+

 

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a larger version of the excellent Galaxy S8, trading a slightly bigger battery for a form factor that isn't as easy to use in one hand.

Longer battery life than the Galaxy S8.

Bigger, heavier, and more expensive than the Galaxy S8.

I may sound a little lukewarm on the Galaxy S8+, but that's just because I can only name one of them our Editors' Choice. The S8+ suffers from a bit of the middle child problem that the iPhone 7 does, trapped between an eminently pocketable little...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: ahead of the curve

 

The new S8 and S8 Plus aren't perfect, but they are damn close

Gorgeous design ; Meticulous fit and finish ; Great camera ; Big screen, but not a big phone

Annoying preinstalled apps ; Atrocious fingerprint scanner placement ; Merely average battery life ; Bixby is useless

Samsung Galaxy S8+ review: The best Android phone, bar none

 

In short, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a masterpiece. It's expensive, but it's a masterpiece nonetheless.

Excellent display for movie watching (will be even better when HDR content is available) ; Great camera ; Refined and full-featured user interface ; Option to avoid Samsung bloatware for best software experience yet ; Eye-catchingly gorgeous design

Internal speaker isn't great ; Bixby isn't fully realised ; Rear fingerprint scanner takes a backseat to iris scanning ; Bixby button feels like it could be doing something else

Samsung waited a little later in 2017 to unleash its flagship phone - but it was well worth the wait. A year on, with falling prices, the Galaxy S8+ still stands up against the new Galaxy S9+.
