Lets discuss about Samsung Galaxy S8 plus reviews…

“Is the Galaxy S8+ worth your dough? My review”

Let’s face it – 2016 wasn’t a great year for Samsung. It started off on a good note, with its Galaxy S7 and S7 edge flagships turning out to be solid, near-perfect daily drivers. But its Note series flagship of 2016, the Note7, bombed… quite literally. So to address the elephant in the room right off the bat, if you’re avoiding the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ just because of what happened with the Note7… don’t. I can confidently say that the latest flagships from Samsung should be among the safest phones around, at least as far battery-related heating issues are concerned. And that confidence stems from the fact that Samsung will do its utmost best not to repeat the same mistake again, one that cost it billions of dollars and immense loss of repute. It’s Samsung we’re talking about, after all.

The Galaxy S8, and it’s larger sibling, the Galaxy S8+ (the one I’m reviewing now), are quite loaded. But as you can make out from the drool-inducing image above, they also look really sexy. However, I did mention in my hands on that apart from the bezel-less design wizardry, the new phones just seem like evolutionary upgrades over their predecessors. After using the S8+ as my daily driver for the past few days, I haven’t changed my opinion much. That said, I’ve come to realise that the Infinity Display (marketing speak for Samsung’s bezel-less design on the S8 duo), is an innovation that does make a lot of sense… one that takes these devices a few steps closer to perfection. You see, innovation not executed well doesn’t do much for users – devices like the Yotaphone and the LG G5 (review) being prime examples.

Before I start ranting about the S8+ in earnest, I would like to point out that most of my views should be valid for the smaller S8 as well, since the two phones are identical expect for their screen sizes and battery capacities.

Going back to last year’s Galaxy S7 (review) and S7 edge (review), I think they were near-perfect flagships when they came out, and actually, worth buying even today. With the S8 and S8+, Samsung has largely stuck to the same tried-and-tested formula, with one big change – it’s gone ahead and shaved off the bezels, enabling it to cram larger screens in bodies that are defy their phablet-grade displays in terms of overall size. The phones are far from perfect though. For one, not only is the newly-relocated fingerprint scanner badly placed, it doesn’t work very well. Secondly, the phones can get quite slippery, and when considered together along with the fact that the glass construction seems fragile… you’re going to have to treat your S8 / S8+ with kid gloves and make sure you don’t drop it. Ever. Further, the hybrid SIM tray is made of plastic, and seems quite flimsy – not done Samsung.

Continuing with the negatives, the non-conventional screen aspect ratio (18.5 : 9) could be an issue if you’re a discerning video watcher. The curved edges of the screens on the S8 and S8+ tend to slightly distort the corners of the videos playing on the devices, and crops them too. And while call quality is great, the phone speaker doesn’t offer rich sound output, despite being quite loud. Then there’s Bixby, Samsung’s much-hyped smart assistant. Since it doesn’t have voice support yet, it’s currently a bit like a combination of Google Now and Google Goggle, with a bit of Samsung’s Briefing news aggregator thrown in. And Bixby even gets its own dedicated launch key on the side of the phones, a button which can’t be remapped to other tasks (although there are a few third-party apps on the Play Store that try and give you this functionality).

The pluses

Design and display But enough about the negatives. Each time I hold the Galaxy S8+ in my hand, I can’t believe it has a 6.2-inch screen. The phone is so compact, hardly bigger (and in some cases, even smaller) than phones with 5.5-inch displays. It’s amazing how Samsung has been able to pack in a phablet-sized display in such a compact body. The bezel-less design looks so gorgeous that you’re bound to turn heads wherever you go. Just browse through the following gallery if you don’t believe me – though I must tell you that images hardly do it justice. The Super AMOLED display is superb overall, even though the colours do look over-saturated. You can however, tweak the screen output via settings – choose between presets such as adaptive, cinema or photo, to just tweak the colour balance manually.
