Well, the bigger versions are here and they come with more sophisticated features.

These two elegant phones look great together and they share several features in common. Just that the plus version has some more features to brag about while the original S8 is cost effective.

Be as it may, the two phones are classic devices to flaunt around. That aside, let’s dive into their review and specs to see if they’re truly worth the hype.

 

Design

The Galaxy S8 has a brilliant design and is perfectly fit to hold; the brimming beautiful screen makes it look more adorable while the interface is well-polished.

S8 plus, on the other hand, blends a stellar performance with a bigger body, larger battery, and greater camera.

Talking about the design, both phones are basically the same except for the size. You’ll be amazed at the bezel-less screen, which features the 18:9 aspect ratio with an eye-catching, curved, and impressive panel that gives you plenty of comforts to hold.
