The huge 6.2-inch screen fits in a very small package

Those with an old phone like the Galaxy Note 5 or even the Galaxy S7 Edge will love Samsung’s latest and greatest.

Do More with A Bigger Screen

Do More with A Bigger Screen

The Galaxy S8 has the biggest screen of any Galaxy S smartphone to date. In fact, it's even bigger than the Galaxy Note 5 or Note 7. Coming in at a whopping 5.8-inches with a 2960 x 1440 Quad-HD resolution. It's just a hair bigger than their previous Note smartphones. 

However, the best choice for almost every buyer will be the Galaxy S8+. That's because it has an even larger 6.2-inch Quad-HD screen that looks gorgeous. Now we know what you're thinking, which is that's HUGE. You're right, but wrong at the same time.

Samsung ditched the home button for the first time in seven years, and made the bezels extremely small. As a result the S8 and S8+ are nearly the exact same size as previous phones. The massive 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ is the same size as the Google Pixel XL or iPhone 7 Plus. Meaning it's pretty small and easy to hold and use. Samsung is using a new 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone in thin, a little taller than previous years and not as wide. Meaning you'll enjoy a huge 6.2-inch screen in a phone the same size as you're already used to.

As a result there's almost no real reason to get a Galaxy S8. Simply enjoy a much larger experience and get the Galaxy S8+ instead. Also, both phones have a curved screen this year, so that isn't a choice like we saw with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Making this decision easier than ever before.
