Even in 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus lives true to Samsung’s ‘the next big thing’ motto. It boasts a very large screen, fast chipsets

Galaxy S8 Plus Price

How large is the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus? You’re looking at a 6.2-inch display, which easily makes it one of the greatest large Android phones available – assuming you can manage it. If you can’t, there’s the’smaller’ 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S9, or if you want something even bigger with a stylus, there’s the Galaxy Note 8 or Galaxy Note 9.

The gracefully curved screen has grown half an inch from the 5.7-inch Galaxy S7 Edge, despite the phone being roughly the same size. It’s slightly taller due to the removal of unnecessary bezel and Samsung’s trademark oval-shaped home button.

Furthermore, by purchasing this new Android, you will be upgrading to the most cutting-edge, VR-ready smartphone available. You care about having the greatest camera and OLED display.

Obviously, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus isn’t for everyone, and for reasons other than ‘it’s too tall for individuals with little hands.’ The lack of a physical home button will be a deal breaker for certain Samsung loyalists and their muscle memory.

The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is, ironically, trapped in the past for such a modern phone. Accessing this off-center scanner is inconvenient, and Samsung’s new face-recognition unlock feature is simply ineffective.

Touching the display’s upper corners needs two hands or significant juggling with one hand. This phone will be difficult for anyone coming from a 4.7-inch or 5.1-inch screen.

Everything about the design of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus seems to emphasize the real main attraction, the 6.2-inch screen. This includes the somewhat subdued Galaxy S8 colors Midnight Black, Orchid Grey, and Arctic Silver (no Maple Gold or Coral Blue in the West).
