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.

When deciding on a new mobile contract, there are a huge variety of plans to choose from. Whatever your priorities, from keeping costs down to making sure you have the right data and call allowances, we'll do the heavy lifting for you with our contracts comparison tool, making it easy to find the deal that's right for you.

How to find the best Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals

A mobile phone contract includes two things: a phone, and a SIM with a monthly allowance of data, texts, and calls. You'll sign up for a long-term contract - usually for 24 months - and you could also pay an upfront charge.

The easiest way to find the best Galaxy S8 Plus deal that's right for you is to compare all your options with our contracts comparison tool.

Use the filters to search by the various options:

  • Minutes, Texts and Data - Consider how you'll use your Galaxy S8 Plus and try and estimate what allowances you'll need. Do you stream music and need a lot of data or are you a big chatter and need a high calls allowance?
  • Network - There are lots of networks to choose from, all of which have pros and cons. You'll get the widest coverage from EE, whereas Three is the only network to offer unlimited mobile data.
  • Cost - Think about what you consider a reasonable monthly cost, and how much you're prepared to pay over the length of a contract as a total cost. Can you afford a handset cost upfront or not?
  • Storage - Most handsets come with a variety of internal storage options.
  • Refurbished phones - If you're looking to reduce costs, some handsets are available as a refurbished phone.

Once you've considered all these options, you should be able to find a contract that's right for you. Click on the deal and we'll take you to the provider's website.

Can I keep my mobile number?

Yes, it's easy to keep your number. Once you've decided on your new mobile contract, you'll need to ask your existing network for a PAC code (Porting Authorisation Code). It's usually three letters and six numbers long and won't cost you a thing. You now have 30 days to pass this code to your new network supplier, who will then port the number from your old SIM to your new SIM, which means you can keep using your existing mobile number.

Going SIM-only

If you decide you don't need a handset with your new mobile plan, then there are loads of SIM-only deals to consider. As they don't include the cost of a phone, they are often a lot cheaper than handset contract deals.
