Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S8 Plus: Does Size Matter?
The latest offering from Samsung is arguably the best we've seen in years. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus come with an avant-garde design and specifications that beat those of other current smartphones. That said, the only question for some now is which of the two, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, is better.
The main and most obvious difference between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus is size. The Galaxy S8 measures 5.86 x 2.68 x 0.31 inches while the dimensions of the Galaxy S8 Plus is 6.00 x 3.09 x 0.31 inches. The Galaxy S8 weighs 5.5 ounces while its big brother comes in at 6.1 ounces. Obviously, the latter is bigger and heavier. However, the Galaxy S8 feels like a bigger smartphone because of the almost bezel-less design or what Samsung calls its Infinity Display.
Speaking of design, Pocket-lint mentioned that both smartphones utilize the metal and glass sandwich design. The new Samsung smartphones also come with curved screens similar to those of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.
As Forbes noted, the only issue with the new design is that the device looks a bit elongated. This is especially true with the Galaxy S8 Plus. People with shorter digits may find it difficult to use the S8 Plus with just one hand particularly when trying to access the top of the S8 Plus to read the notifications.
Another difference between the two is their batteries. The smaller Galaxy S8 uses a 3,000mAh battery while the Galaxy S8 Plus has a bigger 3,500mAh battery. With a difference in battery size comes a difference in battery life. While the S8's battery is already impressive as compared to its predecessor, the S8 plus is even better.
S for the rest of the major features, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are equal. Both smartphones come with such amazing features as a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, 12MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera, IP68 waterproof rating, USB Type-C, traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, and a host of other high-end specs.
Deciding between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus will boil down to one's preference and hand size. Those who like their smartphones big should go for the Galaxy S8 Plus. Those who have small hands or simply doesn't like the "loudness" of a huge phone should choose the Galaxy S8. Either way, consumers get the best that Samsung has to offer by far.
