Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus vs. Galaxy S8
These two cell phones have almost the same characteristics and issues, however, the Galaxy S8 Plus manages to have a longer battery life and offers bigger screen. However, the fingerprint reader is a little more annoying for the reason that it is a much bigger cell phone and difficult to control because it has a 6.2 inch screen. In reality, this ends up being a matter of preference. If you want a more compact phone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is ideal, but if you care more about having a very large screen, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the best option for you.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus vs. iPhone 7 Plus
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus offers more screen for the body size of the device. It is true that the Galaxy S8 Plus is less wide and taller than the iPhone 7 Plus, but the difference in screen size is huge (6.2 vs. 5.5 inches), despite not being much bigger the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus handset comes with 64GB of base storage instead of 32GB, has microSD slot, Samsung Pay is compatible with more payment terminals than Apple Pay, can be charged wirelessly, it is a little more water resistant, its port is more standard, it has 3.5mm headphone jack and has many more features and customization options.
However, the double rear camera of the iPhone 7 Plus allows you to create a better background blur effect on the photos, yes, you can do so on the Galaxy S8 Plus via an option in your app, and I consider that good photographic quality in different scenarios and types of light is more constant in the S8 Plus.
Although this is more a preference of the operating system, I consider that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is a more complete cell phone, although its fingerprint reader negatively impacts the daily experience.
The Galaxy S8 Plus, like its sister S8, is undoubtedly one of the best cell phones today, but it missed the chance to be crowned without problems as the best cell phone of the year. Yes, it is the most beautiful phone I have seen, its performance is excellent and its cameras offer excellent photographic quality, but its fingerprint reader negatively impacts the daily experience and its facial recognition and iris scanner are not practical solutions. However, over time you get used to this shortcoming. There is no doubt that it is a cell phone that is worth buying, as it is one of the most complete one in the market.
