Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Information

After the catastrophe that was the Galaxy 7 (and its exploding battery), Samsung have come back kicking with arguably the best phone on the market - the S8 Plus. It's brilliantly designed, bursting with horsepower and has a beautiful screen.

The handset feels sleeker and more slim than its predecessor, thanks to its rounded edge metal and glass body. The S8 Plus's rounded Infinity displays, which are 5.8 and 6.2 inches big, give the handset a classy feel.

There isn't a huge difference between the Samsung Galaxy S8, and the S8 Plus - the S8 Plus is just bigger. It's around 10mm taller and 5mm wider which isn't much to jump from a 5.8- to 62 screen. That said, the Galaxy S8 is heavier at 173g compared to 155g.

The screens don't extend any farther down the phone's' sides than the S7 Edge's display did, but the bezel surrounding them has almost completely disappeared, giving you more screen to look and interact with.

Although it is beautiful as it is, you should consider putting a case on the S8 Plus because of how much glass is used. It is very slippery and would be easy to drop.

Owners will be pleased to find that there's a USB-C port on the phone's bottoms, with a headphone jack next to it, which is a nice surprise as a lot of companies are ditching the port to save on space.

Like a lot of new handsets, the S8 Plus is waterproof too. It's IP68 dust and water-resistant, which means you could (if you were feeling particularly brave) have it in water for up to 30 minutes.

In regards to storage, Samsung has kept things simple this year so the Galaxy S8 Plus matches the smaller model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. However, you can add up to 256GB of additional space with a microSD card.

The Galaxy S8 Plus has a Qualcomm's new octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset, along with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and Adreno 540 GPUs. It has dual-band 11ac Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0 and LTE Cat 16.

The biggest difference between the S8 and S8 Plus are the devices' batteries. The S8 packs a 3,000mAh cell while the Plus contains a 3,500mAh battery which lasts about 24 hours.

The S8 Plus's Super AMOLED panels are awesome, with colours being vibrant and bright. The screens get bright enough so even if the sun is shining directly on the handset, you can see images and text perfectly.

The S8 Plus screen is longer than most - which makes watching video exciting. While a lot of other smartphones screens stick to the 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, Samsung has built the S8 Plus screen with an 18:5:9 aspect ratio. This means that the handset can happily sit in your palm and allow you to multitask easily with just the one hand.

There is an always-on display too if you like that kind of thing. You can customise it further with images in addition to the usual clocks and calendars.

When it comes to the engine of the smartphone, The Galaxy S8 Plus contains Android 7.0 Nougat. However, by looking at it, you wouldn't know it as Samsung has painted over it.

The answer to Apple's Siri is Bixy - the S8 Plus's virtual assistant. It wasn't ready when the phone was first launched which was a big disappointment to many, but Samsung promises you'll be able to control your S8 with your voice as well as you can by tapping on its screen - which is a bit of a game-changer.

Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S8 Pluses camera is seriously impressive. It has 12-megapixel sensors, meaning the photos are even hand have impeccable colour reproduction. The dual-pixel cameras focus is incredibly fast, and the optical image stabilisation does an excellent job keeping subjects crisp and clear.

There is an improved 8-megapixel front camera too, with a wider field of view, which is perfect for group selfies or landscapes.

If the bigger screen is worrying you, something that will help you out with is the new feature - Snap Window which is a new element to Multi Window. Using a new icon when viewing recent apps, you can select a portion of an app to pin at the top of the display while you carry on using the remainder like normal. It's a great feature which makes your phone feel more like a computer screen.
