Galaxy S8+ vs S7 Edge: Design

In terms of the design we have a familiar affair here, similar to that of the last few generations of Samsung smartphones. However, it's different at the same time. We have an all glass and metal design, curves all around, and even more curves on both the front and the back. 

The biggest difference is the large screen on front, which we already talked about. It just dominates the front, as the bezels are tiny. The design change most will need to take into consideration is the missing home button, and the fact that the fingerprint scanner is now on back. Samsung added a haptic 3DTouch like engine under the glass where the new on-screen home button is, so it shouldn't feel too different. But reaching way up to the very top right side for the fingerprint scanner will take some serious getting used to. 

Instead of putting the finger sensor under the camera in the middle it's to the right, which is a questionable spot. It's a long reach, and camera lenses will get fingerprints and smudges on them. Anyone who loves the S7 home button will need to completely relearn their phone usage habits. 

The sides, front and back all curve together for a seamless design. There's a 3.5mm headphone jack (hopefully) and new USB Type-C port for charging. Which is reversible and can be plugged in both ways. We also have a new Iris Eye scanner on the front. 

All said and done the design and overall look remains unchanged. The only difference is the front is all black, regardless of color. The screen is huge and curved, and there are no physical buttons on the front. We really love the design, but hope that fingerprint scanner isn't too far away to reach comfortably.
