Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy S8 Comparison

Galaxy S8 Plus vs S8

Considered to be two versions of the same device, these smartphones have a lot in common. Their camera modules are identical, as are their RAM and storage capacity. However, the difference in size can help you choose, as can their battery life and price. Here's a look at the differences between them to help you make your choice.

Samsung S8, a compact version

Measuring 148.9 × 68.1 × 8 mm (compared to 159.5 × 73.4 × 8.1 mm), the Samsung S8 is the most compact of the two. It therefore has a smaller screen than the Plus version, with a 5.8-inch screen compared to the 6.2-inch screen of the Samsung S8 Plus. However, the screen's usable area is almost identical, which does not hinder the use of the S8.

Another similarity is that the screen offers the same resolution on both smartphones. It's 2,960 × 1,440 px. This allows the S8 to come out on top with a final screen resolution of 570 compared to 539 for the S* Plus. It's also more interesting when it comes to the price. A difference of £100 separates the two devices.

Samsung S8 Plus, an XL version

With its larger dimensions, the Samsung S8 Plus benefits from a larger battery capacity (3,500 mAh compared to only 3,000 for the S8). It therefore gains a good hour of additional battery life. On the other hand, it is heavier, weighing 173 grams, or 18 grams more than the Samsung S8.

The rest of its technical specifications are identical to the Samsung S8. They both have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage capacity, a Super AMOLED screen and the same photo sensors (12MPX for the main lens and 8MPX for the front camera). So it's hard to tell them apart. Only the size and the footprint of these two Samsung smartphones can help you choose.

If battery life and a large screen are essential for your daily life, only the Samsung S8 Plus is able to meet your needs. Looking for the best price? Go for the Samsung S8 as it offers excellent value for money and doesn't disappoint.
