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

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+ 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+.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review

 

Better battery life and a bigger screen improve on excellence - but it'll cost you

Stunning design is unbeatable by any other phone right now ; Incredible performance that comes into its own with DeX Station ; Camera quality among the best you’ll find in in a phone

Size won’t be for everyone ; Fingerprint sensor slightly awkwardly placed ; £100 more than the already excellent S8

Bigger will be better for some, and the S8+ is a phenomenal phone, but the regular S8 is just as good for less cash

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus hands-on review

 

Destined to be the biggest star in Samsung's Galaxy universe?

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review

 

One of the best big Android phones 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.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review: Samsung's 6.2in monster

 

Bigger might be better with Samsung's Galaxy S8 Plus, but is it worth the extra cash?

Positively gorgeous ; More of that beautiful display ; The best smartphone performance so far

Doesn't offer much more than regular S8 ; Expensive

That’s the sticking point and the main reason I’ve knocked a star off. My hand has been forced: there’s simply not enough extra here to warrant the higher price over the regular S8, notwithstanding the added 0.4in of screen real estate and bump in...

Galaxy S8 Plus is still the big-phone boss

 

If the bigger version of the world's most beautiful phone has one fault, it's that it makes the Galaxy S8's misplaced fingerprint scanner worse.

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.
