  • Intelligent security

    The unique detail in your eye is used to unlock the smartphone with the iris scanner, which is even more secure than a fingerprint reader.

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. 


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. 


All-round protection

The S8+ is certified as IP68. This means that the smartphone is protected against water and dust and can be submerged in fresh water, to a depth of 1.5m for up to 30 minutes, without any damage to its performance.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chezzagirl from Best so far Got this from an upgrade from iPhone 6 as wanted a change from that, only £9.99 upfront then £60 a month with o2! Gorgeous phone, not too narrow so easy to hold but nice length & longer than iPhone! Photos are the best at 12mp, even in the dark with flash on whereas find a lot of phones are rubbish at night with flash on! Plenty of space at 64g! Definitely recommend this phone if you are ok with it expensive contract it's worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JSKI from Great phone all round. I've had this phone for almost a month now and I can't fault it once I got a good one. My first s8+ had to be replaced due to half the screen being yellow and half being white... second s8+ screen was perfect but only 1 of the akg headphones worked, carphone warehouse replaced the headset the next day. Battery is good considering the extra screen size, haven't noticed any lag on any games and camera is very good too. If I had to pick out an issue with this phone then I'd have to say the screen is a tad reflective and does have a slight impact on visibility outdoors compared to an s7 and other high end galaxy devices.
