Galaxy S8 or S8+: Which should you choose?

by birtanpublished on September 15, 2020

So you're looking to get a new phone and you've decided on the Galaxy s8 but then you remember oh yeah there's a bigger one not sure which one you should get well hopefully this video will help you make that decision so with the s8 and s8 plus they're nearly identical on paper

Same software features same snapdragon 835 processor same 29 60 by 1440 screen resolution same Club megapixel and 8 megapixel cameras same 4 gigabytes of RAM same 64 gigs of storage and special features like wireless charging

Water-resistant expandable storage and all that good stuff are also present on both but as far as differences go there really aren't too many for starters there's the battery size the s8 comes with a 3000 milliamp hour battery while

The plus patch 830 500 milliamp hour battery and in terms of which one lasts longer on a charge in my experience the s8 plus comes out on top where are a version on time and about five and a half to six hours with the regular s8

Then of course there's the elephant in the room besides the s8 sports a 5.8 inch screen and weighs in at just under five and a half ounces while the plus sports a 6.2 inch screen and weighs in at about 6 ounces now since they both

Have the same screen resolution the smaller display on the s8 is more pixel dense and it kind of makes things look a tad bit sharper but don't worry it's not a super noticeable difference now in terms of how this translates into

Actually using these phones well you'll definitely have your hands full with the si+ there's just no getting around this for reference here it is next to the iPhone 7 plus and while it is more narrow it's a tad bit

Taller and the screen is taller as well making things like accessing anything at the top of the display while using the phone one-handed quite the task now with the regular s8 you're getting pretty much everything you get with the plus

Minus the size of course in a very comfortably compact package for reference here's the s8 in between the s7 edge from last year and Beyond er8 which is known to be a smaller phone now for someone who's a big phone lover and

Can handle the plus I found the body of the essay to be too small for my taste because of how narrow it really is at first but then I tossed my SIM card in it and began using it as a daily driver I quickly began getting accustomed to

The phone smaller footprint and the screen is still fairly large so that helps so while I use B plus more often the s8 does tend and I absolutely love it I think the biggest deciding factor here is the

Price the regular essay goes for about 750 but it can definitely be found for less while the plus goes for around $100 more but this too can be found for less in terms of features you don't really lose anything by going with the regular

S8 and 25.8 inch screen is still a nice large size with the SI you could save $100 or more get a more manageable phone with all the same features and with si plus you're getting better battery life and a bigger display which makes for a

Great media consumption experience my advice is if you're still unsure about which phone you should get head over to your local carrier a Best Buy or even Target and just mess around with both phones for a bit if I had to give my

Final recommendation I'd say it depends on your use case but overall I think I'd recommend the regular s8 to most users since again you're getting all of these big features that you get with a plus you're saving some cash and you won't

Have to worry about reaching the top of the display as well as fitting the phone into your pocket if you have large hands or you just don't mind the tall screens and go with the plus either way you can't go wrong so are you getting an SI

If so let us know which model you've decided on and if you already have one let us know which one you've got and why you chose it over the other but anyways that does it for this video I hope you guys enjoyed it if you did feel free to
