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...

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.

After attending the Samsung Galaxy S8 launch event , I had the chance to try out the device for a couple of hours and put together my 10 best smartphones of 2017 so far post with the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus at the top of my list. After a week with the...

Tough to accurately tap fingerprint sensor ; Fingerprints on back glass ; Bixby voice control not ready at launch

Samsung Galaxy S8+ vs Galaxy Note 5


For the third time in a row now, Samsung is putting out a shiny jewel of a flagship smartphone — a glass-and-metal sandwich with curvy sides, vibrant colors, and very reflective finishes. We are talking about the Galaxy S8 and its bigger variant — the...

Conventional display (flat, 16:9) ; Cheaper ; S Pen ; Front-facing, hardware home button / fingerprint sensor

Both the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 5 were built to be the most advanced and most premium-looking handsets that Samsung is capable of producing at their respective times of release. For that reason, the S8+ is a futuristic-looking piece of mobile...

Samsung Galaxy S8+ vs S7 Edge


The Galaxy S7 Edge was one of the most successful Samsung phones. Its striking curved screen that gave the impression of the screen just flowing along the phone's sides and its beautiful glass and metal construction were really something special.

Very good price ; Good battery life ; Still a top performer

It’s time for a wrap-up: with every aspect of the S8+ and S7 Edge compared and thoroughly examined, is it worth getting the S8+?

Samsung Galaxy S8+ Review


Such a tense moment, isn't it? Up until last year, Samsung was experiencing considerable setbacks due to rising competition from lower-cost Chinese phone vendors, and the fact the Galaxy S5 and S6 weren't exactly the most memorable products ever. The...

A bold new form-factor ; Solid all-around experience ; State-of-the-art camera

Performance could be better ; Screen colors are not too accurate

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is and isn't a big deal, depending on how you look at it. If you happen to have some degree of sensationalism in you — a quality that many of us tend to exhibit these days — you may be inclined to say that the S8+ is a...

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review


The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a super-sized version of the S8, with an absolutely incredible screen, and electrifying capabilities to match. It's the most powerful mobile device you can get your hands on, but the price is sky high too.

The Galaxy S8+ is the same as the S8 , but with a larger screen and a bigger battery. It's the best phablet-style phone we've reviewed, giving you a bigger screen than the iPhone 7 Plus in a lighter and more compact form factor. It's still big though,...

Samsung Galaxy S8+ review: more size and more power


The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is the larger version of the Galaxy S8, with a huge display and a diagonal of 6.2 inches. However, size isn't the only difference between Samsung's two flagship smartphones. Read on for our full review of the Samsung Galaxy S8+...

Superior build quality and elegant design ; Impressive display ; Very good camera ; Smooth performance ; Latest Android version

Battery only average ; Bixby not ready yet ; Fingerprint sensor placement is odd

After the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, Samsung had to prove itself, that much is obvious. It's also becoming apparent that Samsung is reaching its goal with the Galaxy S8+. The design is as elegant as it is successful, the quality of the build is perfect and...

Review: Samsung Galaxy S8+


The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a heavy-hitter that trounces much of the competition. This Android flagship from the world leader in smartphones struts its stuff with pride, despite several pain points that hold it back. The Galaxy S8+ is the bigger brother...

Samsung found the right formula in the Galaxy S8+. It dialed in the exact amounts of high design, technical power, and quality build needed to deliver a near-perfect smartphone. The S8+'s flaws are so few and far between I can hardly bring myself to...

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review


The best big Android phone you can own

Big screen, acceptable phone size ; Best camera on a smartphone ; Slick software and performance

Your most expensive phone yet ; Flawed fingerprint sensor ; Hello, Bixby? Hello?!

The Galaxy S8 Plus is the Android phone you want if you like big and tall smartphones. The amazing display, great camera and slick software should make you forget about the awkwardly placed fingerprint scanner and the half-bake Bixby assistant.
