  • Flaws in fingerprint sensor

  • Display seems fragile
  • Fingerprint sensor location seems odd



Samsung goes with the saying “the next big thing” and the smartphone giant seems to be very much focused on the tag while developing the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The device pretty much fits into the category of an outsized display. The device screen is outsized and so is the price of the gadget. With a 6.2 display, the device probably is in the category of Android phones that have the biggest displays, which for some people might be a concern while handling the device. And for these users, Samsung has another offering in the form of Galaxy S8. 

The elegantly curved smartphone has a number of features packed for the users. The device has grown in size from the previous offerings as we have already mentioned above. The oval-shaped home button that is typical Samsung offering is there with this device too that adds the phone makers’ signature to this smartphone also.

The Specifications Under A Glance

Right from the design to the device specifications and to the overall offering, Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus stuns from every particular angle. Being the slickest Android phone that I have ever reviewed, the smartphone is futuristic. And, the best news, the device does not compromise on usability for the sake of style. With the smartphone, Samsung has managed to strike a perfect balance in all the aspects of the design. The last flagship phone from the smartphone maker had a screen size between 5.5 and 5.7 inches.

The device is large-sized that feels good to use. The front is curved and the oversized screen sometimes felt hard to reach out to give any particular command. Because of the similar concern, the placement of the fingerprint sensor doesn’t seem justified with the device. There is a dedicated Bixby (Samsung's very own assistant) key that seems just the waste of the space as it does nothing good enough in regard to the purpose for which the key has been displayed. 

SIM and microSD card slot sits at the top of the phone. And, when we talk about the bottom part, the headphone jack and the mono-speaker flanking the USB Type-C port sits there. The company has tagged the device water-resistant that pretty much feels right but with some of the limitations as the phone can only be submerged in 1m of water for about 30 minutes. 

The verdict

The AMOLED panel and the color reproduction are one of the best attributes that the device features. It displays the deepest black and brighter shade such as red and green. In case, you are pretty happy with a smartphone that is affordable enough to hire, Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is a smart choice. The screen is the joy to look upon and the curved screen adds more to the edge display. All in all the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is a smart choice for a smart shopper in you who loves to own a greatly sized smartphone.
