Galaxy S8+ vs Galaxy S8

Infinity and beyond

If you’re looking to choose between Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+, then the only thing you really have to decide is how much screen you need.

Both phones feature the gorgeous new Infinity Display – which curves gently into the sides and takes up the whole of the front of the phone. So, while both phones are only a tiny bit bigger than the previous models, (the S7 and S7 Edge) they’re a big step up in screen size – at 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches respectively.

Both feature the same 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and 8-megapixel selfie-snapper, and both have a powerful Octacore processor – which guarantees a smooth performance even when you’re running the most demanding games. In fact, the main difference apart from size is the slightly bigger battery in the S8+ – which is balanced out by the need for more juice to power the screen.

Spoilt for choice

With handy features like the Bixby personal assistant and an iris scanner for instant secure access, both S8 and S8+ have a lot to offer. The S8 fits more easily in the hand, and its generous screen will suit most people’s needs – but if screen size is your main priority, the S8+ is the one to choose. Whichever you go for, you’re sure to be delighted with its look, feel and usability.
