92.1% Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Plus, SM-G955F) Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Galactic overachiever. Samsung does not make any compromises for its flagship smartphone Galaxy S8+ (Plus) and equips it with a lot of high-end features. You also get a great display with a new aspect ratio and the design is convenient as well. There is not much criticism for the compact phablet from Korea.
Update: A new firmware with improved reliability for the Bluetooth chip and the SD card reader has been released.

At the end of the day, the Galaxy S8+ is a phone I’d recommend to most buyers, but only if you’re willing to put up with its fragility. At over $800 outright, it’s an expensive handset, so it’d be devastating to see it shatter within a few weeks. Keep good care of it, though, and you’ll be rewarded with a fantastic range of hardware that could just be worth its high asking price.

Samsung Galaxy S8+ Review: A Flawed Slice of the Future
Source: Androidbeat English
The Galaxy S8+ is certainly a stunning piece of smartphone design. It’s fundamentally flawed, of course – the mass of fragile glass that needs protecting, the fixed-use Bixby button, the awkward biometrics – but it’s going to be very influential going forwards. Not just for other manufacturers to copy, but also for Samsung’s own Galaxy S9 in 2018, which is sure to be faster again, have fully working voice control and a fingerprint sensor underneath the main display. That will be a sure fire recommendation, but it’s harder to be so definite with this year’s version.

The Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S8 are going to set you back quite a bit when it comes to their price tags. They are firmly at the high end, but that goes with the high end device you will be getting. Perhaps more importantly, if you want a device that is at the cutting edge in terms of design loaded down with hardware that works and works well, the Galaxy S8+ meets that need. The bottomline is the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S8 are excellent devices that you will enjoy owning and using and move Samsung to the front of the line in the phone market.

There’s the potential that Bixby might be one other vital benefit on the Samsung Galaxy S8, however till the voice management a part of the system launches we can’t make that willpower. I can not wait to see if I actually can simply inform my telephone to ship a photograph to my associates with out ever touching my telephone. If Bixby lives as much as the hype, it could possibly be my favourite function of the S8.

80% Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review: Bigger and even more beautiful than the S8, but is it better?
Source: Alphr English
In essence, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the same phone as the S8, with all the things that make that phone great, but with a bigger screen, a bigger battery, a more unwieldy profile and a higher price. Is it any better, though? In my view, the answer to that question has to be no, and that’s mainly due to the 6.2in Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus’ size: it’s just one step too far. Although it isn’t over-wide, it’s too tall and although I’d be happy to carry around the regular Samsung Galaxy S8 in my pocket day to day, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus doesn’t quite get it right in the same way.

This review wasn’t meant to be an exhaustive take on what makes the Samsung Galaxy S8 right for you. We didn’t touch on the camera (which remains mostly unchanged from last year), the bump in storage to 64GB from 32GB, the unbelievably quick charging times, the decent bottom-firing speaker, or the truly awful placement of the fingerprint sensor. Most of those things you can figure out yourself just by looking at the facts and figures, you don’t need me to insult your intelligence by telling you how amazing it is to have double the storage or something.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ (review) are perhaps some of the most high profile smartphones launched in a while. For Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India, specifications include an Exynos 8895 octa-core SoC, Mali-G71 MP20 GPU, and 4GB of RAM. The US version has the same amount of memory, but it gets Qualcomm's MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 processor and an Adreno 540 GPU. According to our Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ review, the Exynos version has proven to be an absolute beast in terms of benchmarks.

But if you want the very best that smartphones have to offer today – and Samsung's most impressive handset to date – the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are as close to perfect as we've seen in any smartphone. This is a company that was once the butt of jokes: for blatantly copying Apple, delivering too much glitz and too little substance and (more recently) selling phones that were fire hazards. Take note: Samsung appears to have grown up, making an absolute beast of a phone in 2017. The S8 and S8+ mark a major milestone in smartphone evolution.

Yes, if you are looking for a top-end Android phone and want the best. The only challenger for this phone is the Google Pixel, which has not really flown off the shelves.

Otherwise, this is a perfect phone with no big problems, and a lot of good features that will ensure a great user experience everyday.

The Samsung S8 Plus is dust and water resistant up to 1.5 meters. Which does check the box for underwater photography. However, the bigger picture here is that if the user drops water or coffee on it, the smartphone will still work. On the flipside, if you drop it on concrete from a height, chances are you will shatter the front or rear glass or both. So, our suggestion is to buy a case or a bumper panel for it as soon as you purchase it.

Most definitely yes. The Galaxy S8 is Samsung's best phone ever. In fact, it's safe to say, that it's the best Android phone in the market right now. I like the Galaxy S8 more because it's more handy and convenient. But, the 3,000mAh battery inside the Galaxy S8 does leave me asking for more. While most users would be able to get one full working day of usage out of it, heavy users will have to charge it at least twice every day. It charges like a speeding bullet though which is a big plus.

The Galaxy S8 Plus is the Android phone you want if you like big and tall smartphones. It has a massive 6.2-inch display that doesn’t make the actual dimensions of the device much bigger. Samsung’s trick was to rid its phone of the physical home button and surrounding bezel, and while that means it has an annoyingly placed rear, off-center fingerprint sensor, the amazing display, great camera and slick software should make you forget about this flaw and its Bixby voice assistant being a no-show on day one.

It was a tall task for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ development team - not an enviable position, to say the least.

For the most part, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is a slam dunk. It’s brilliantly designed, brimming with horsepower and has a beautiful screen. That’s all most people will need, and our gripes are minor. It’s too bad Bixby is still incomplete — its voice interface doesn’t work yet, and the stuff we did get can be hit-or-miss. Fortunately, Bixby is strictly optional, and the rest of the phone is remarkably polished. Long story short, if you’re looking for a new phone, this should be at the top of your list.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a larger version of the excellent Galaxy S8, trading a slightly bigger battery for a form factor that isn't as easy to use in one hand.

Lovers of big phones won't find a prettier device with a larger screen anywhere else, but you'll want to make sure it isn't too tall for you, and the fingerprint reader too hard to reach, before you commit.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S8+
Source: Phone Scoop English
Samsung found the right formula in the Galaxy S8+. It dialed in the exact amounts of high design, technical power, and quality build needed to deliver a near-perfect smartphone. The S8+'s flaws are so few and far between I can hardly bring myself to bother repeating them here because everything else is so darned good, though it perhaps has at least one compromise the S8 doesn't.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Initial Review: Samsung’s Back
Source: Unbox English
With all the features that the new phones have, it’s not surprising that the new models have heart-stopping SRPs compared to last year’s offerings. The Galaxy S8, for example, will be priced by Samsung in the Philippines at Php 39,990, while the Galaxy S8+ will be priced even higher, at Php 45,990. Pre-orders for both phones start on April 17 and will run to April 29, with pre-order customers will get a free Bluetooth wireless speaker that’s valued at Php 5,099 to soften the blow. The phones will hit the market on the first or second week of May.

Should You Upgrade To The Galaxy S8 Or S8+?
Source: Unbox English
Should you upgrade to the S8 and S8+? Well, if you bought a Galaxy S7, S7 Edge or any other flagship phone last year, the answer is no. Those curved screens are nice, but the new phones’ sky-high price tag will certainly give many people pause. If you’re due for a retention phone from your telco or have a flagship phone from two years ago, go for it, but be prepared for the high prices that the two phones demand.

This phone makes our iPhone 7 Plus look somewhat aged. Until you see it up against some of the other handsets from 2016, it really doesn't hit home quite how brilliant it is. Although it comes at a price, you'll love it. We want one!

After a month of what seemed like never ending barrage of leaks, Samsung has finally (and officially) announced its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. This marks the company's first major smartphone release since the sad demise of the Galaxy Note7 last fall, which prompted the company to implement a new 8-point battery safety check to the S8 and all future devices.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a demonstration that Samsung isn't standing still with its smartphones. There's no sense of playing it safe, instead embracing a push in new directions. The S8 show the biggest rethinking of device interaction that we've seen in the history of Samsung Galaxy and we love it.

Source: PC Advisor English
As with the regular Galaxy S8, we're really impressed by the Galaxy S8 Plus. Samsung has done a great job of making last year's models even better. However our initial thought is that, with both offering the infinity edge screen, there's not much reason to spend an extra £90 unless you really want a slightly bigger screen and larger battery.

So far, the Galaxy S8 Plus seems like a phone capable of bringing even more screen real estate to buyers who just can't get enough, but we'll have to wait for the final review unit to see how well it really fits and feels day to day, especially against big-screen rivals like the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL.

All We Know: Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+
Source: Unbox English
With all the bells and whistles of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, it’s only understandable that the phones will be quite expensive when it arrives in the Philippines. Prolific leaker Evan Blass posted expected European pricing for both phones a few days ago and it isn’t pretty. Even accounting the fact that European pricing will always be higher due to higher taxes, you can expect the Galaxy S8 to be priced near the 40K mark, while the Galaxy S8+ will certainly be in the low 40’s. That’s pricing approaching iPhone territory, though you will have to consider that both devices use large, hard-to-produce curved Super AMOLED panels. Still, that price though.

Comment

Model: The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a smartphone where Samsung rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all users see pure content and no bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size. And it's easy to hold in one hand. The Samsung Galaxy S8+ does not only feature an impressive screen, but also strong hardware specification and design. Samsung's Galaxy S8 Plus is another all-glass design wrapped around a thin metal frame, and its edge-to-edge curved sides are accompanied by ultra-thin top and bottom bezels. The Galaxy S8 Plus flaunts it even more than the S8, fitting a tall 6.2-inch display inside truly phablet dimensions of 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm. It weighs 173 g. There's also no longer a physical home button on the front – instead, the phone relies on a pressurized on-screen home button. There are three color options available for the S8+ which are Midnight, Orchid Gray, and Arctic Silver. As for the display, the S8+ has an AMOLED panel with a quad-HD+ 2660 x 1440 resolution that looks super-sharp. One factor that makes the display super-sharp is the Mobile HDR (high dynamic range). It is really a killer addition to the display. Samsung says this is the first phone with the Mobile HDR Premium stamp. HDR gives users richer colors, inkier blacks and better contrast, and generally makes things look more realistic on-screen. On-screen buttons are popular on other Android phones that benefit from more screen real estate, but this is a big change for long-time Samsung phone users. The fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back, adjacent to the camera. Samsung includes a number of other ways to unlock the phone. Besides the fingerprint sensor and the usual passcode unlock method, both an iris scanner and face recognition provide touch-free unlocking.

Another addition to the Galaxy S8+ is Bixby which is supposed to rival Apple's Siri and Android's Google Assistant. Bixby is dotted throughout the OS, in the camera and its own dedicated home screen. The benefit of Bixby is that it's a system-wide intelligent interface for the Galaxy S8 Plus. The user can control the entire smartphone by prompting Bixby. Like Siri, a user can ask it questions and it’ll carry out basic tasks, and there is no need to utter an awkward ‘wake word’, as there’s a button solely to open Bixby under the volume rocker. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has next-generation power under the hood to match that futuristic exterior, and that's thanks to its new processors. It has a 10 nm octa-core chipset at its heart, matched with 4 GB of RAM. The S8 Plus has 64 GB of internal storage, which can be upgraded via the microSD slot by another 256 GB. As for the camera, there’s a single 12 MP sensor on its back with a wide f/1.7 lens that uses the same dual-pixel technology as the S7. A new multi-frame image processor takes three shots every time user snap, reducing blur and leaving with a sharper single photo. The front camera has seen a bigger upgrade. The new 8 MP sensor has a f/1.7 aperture and there’s autofocus too, which is still a rare thing on selfie cameras. With all these amazing specs put together, it is undoubtedly the smartphone to beat for any upcoming flagship.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
