Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus in Hong Kong – The Next Big Thing

If you like big, tall smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus will be perfect for you. It comes with a ridiculously big screen, top-of-the-line specs, with a premium price tag. Take a look at the features this smartphone has to offer.

Design

For several years, fans of Samsung have been asking for a bigger screen and now finally, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus features the ‘Infinity Display’ that maximizes the nearly bezel-less screen. Even with a bigger screen, it is still comfortable to be held without significantly increasing the size of device. Once again, Samsung features its classic curved screen but erases the top and bottom bezels. The design on the Samsung Galaxy S8 seems to highlight the 6.2-inch screen.

Display

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has one of the best-looking phone screens ever. With the new 18:5:9 aspect ratio and HDR, it lengthens the screen’s dimensions to give users more viewing space. Compared to the Galaxy S7 Edge which only has a good 76% ratio, the Galaxy S8 has an impressive 88%. You’ll feel more at ease when you read while the split-screen multitasking feels less cramped. Another feature of this phone is the Smart Cropping where users are allowed to view content on the entire screen or fit to screen with black bars.

Fingerprint scanner

Without its home button, Samsung has opted for a fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8 instead. The placement of the fingerprint sensor is rather awkward as it is located right next to the camera lens which will cause a lot of smudging. Compared to other popular smartphone brands, the fingerprint scanner is usually right smack in the middle for easy access. For users who hold their phone in their non-dominant left hand will have an extra-difficult time unlocking their phone. Nevertheless, users can opt for other means of unlocking the phone such as with passwords, pins, patterns, and the all-new face unlock.

Performance

Running on Exynos 8895, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is one hell of a fast phone. This newer set of chips offers a more efficient 10nm process and comes with a few advantages such as improving battery and life as well as supporting gigabit LTE speeds. Additionally, the Bluetooth 5.0 is able to connect with two devices simultaneously and play the same source through them both. In terms of the operating system, games and apps all run without a hitch while it’s fluid throughout.

Camera

There are a couple of upgrades that lead to better photos as a whole, such as with the sensor. On top of that, there’s a multi-frame image processor that takes three shots for each time your snap one. Even though the camera on the Galaxy S8 is rather similar to the Galaxy S7, the camera on this device takes much brighter shots where the colours are generally more saturated. Another aspect of the phone is the wide f/1.7 aperture which captures picture that display the bokeh effect.

Check out the key features of the Galaxy S8+ in the video below:
