Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus review

 Review: April 2017  

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a super-sized version of the S8, with an absolutely incredible screen, and electrifying capabilities to match. It's the most powerful mobile device you can get your hands on, but the price is sky high too.


A super-sized S8

The Galaxy S8+ is the same as the S8, but with a larger screen and a bigger battery. It's the best phablet-style phone we've reviewed, giving you a bigger screen than the iPhone 7 Plus in a lighter and more compact form factor. It's still big though, and you have to really, really want the huge screen - otherwise the regular S8 is a much better choice for most people.

The battery has been uprated from 3,000 to 3,500mAh, but otherwise all the specs are the same.

On sim-free, the phone costs around £100 more than the standard S8, but on Pay Monthly you'll need to spend around £65 per month on a contract, and that seems to us like a crazy price. It's the kind of money Apple charges for its products - too much. We've deducted one star from our rating to reflect that. However, if money is no object to you, then we'd say that this is the most capable phone you can buy at present.
