Design and display

Go big or go home

The Galaxy S8+’s expansive Quad HD infinity display is 6.2-inches – which is one of the biggest screens ever to feature on a smartphone. Its curved edges flow around the side of the device – making it seem like the screen goes on forever. 

Impressive design

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is big and beautiful. It’s expertly crafted from a combination of glass and metal, with the curved display blending seamlessly into the frame.

Next-level privacy

As well as a fingerprint scanner, located on the back of the smartphone, there’s an iris scanner adding an extra level of security. The intelligent sensor reads the unique patterns of your eyes, letting you unlock the phone by simply looking at it. 

Camera

Picture perfect, night and day

Samsung’s Dual Pixel camera is designed to capture great photos, filling them with light and colour. The wide f/1.7 aperture lets in lots of light, so even in low-light situations, you’re guaranteed a great shot. 

Autofocus selfies

The 8MP front-facing lens has autofocus technology built in, to make sure each and every selfie is perfect to post. It can also record video at Quad HD resolution, so your video calls will be crisp, clear, and life-like.  

Under the hood

Room to breathe

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ has 64GB of storage – plenty of room for apps and games, and movies too. And if you do find yourself running low on space, you can add a microSD card of up to 256GB.

Days of battery

On the inside there’s an impressive 3,500mAh battery, which can be powered up quickly using USB Type-C fast-charging technology. It’s more than enough to see you through the day, and with Samsung’s power saving mode, it’ll stay up and running as late as you do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChubbaChubb from Converted after one day I have had this phone for one day now and.....Wow. I loved the Sony phone I had but this S8+ blows it out the water. Amazing phone, does everything you could want with a phone. fast, beautiful, such a lovely feel to it. Amazing videos and photos, fills the whole screen so no black blocks around the front while trying to view videos. Everything about this phone is perfect. Love this phone, everyone should get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DamiA from Pretty Incredible Smartphone The phone is amazing, i have to say, its one of the best smartphones i have ever used. I have to say the phone has a awesome screen first of all, i mean the fact they were able to get a large 6.2 inch screen inside a small dimension like that is something which really impresses me. I love the screen resolution to and i think they were amazing with the 2960 by 1440 pixel screen. What i love the most, is that the resolution can be changed so therefore that could increase the battery life and therefore you can have more time doing what you do with your smartphone. The processor is awesome, i wish it was the Snapdragon version though, because its slightly faster and the newer one and also the 6GB RAM would be good but nevertheless its a awesome smartphone anyways. Other things which I love include is the Face Unlock, i love that, that makes unlocking the phone so simple, however the IRIS scanner doesn't work for me and it failed every time but its alright. I just think wow the camera is awesome and i mean BOTH of them. They take some awesome photos and they look like DSLR camera quality so its impressive. The memory is good at 64GB, other companies should take note and start their base storage at this level. In the end the Galaxy S8 Plus is a smartphone alright and a beast at that and Samsung has done really well here with the phone but wow i've not had a experience like i have with this phone, The Galaxy S8 Plus is your ultimate smartphone.
