Samsung announced on 29 of March “the next big thing”, i’m not a Samsung fanboy but my latest 4 smartphones were Samsung (Note 4, S6 Edge +, S7 Edge and now the S8 Plus) it says something.
The Galaxy S7 Edge wasn’t a perfect phone, but it was the most similar to that in the market for me. I was happy with it until the S8 Plus was announced, one of the biggest complains that i have with my S7 Edge was the screen size, only 5.5″, were i came from the S6 Edge + with a 5.7″ and i wish it was bigger, bigger hands leads to bigger smartphones…
When Galaxy S8 was announced i knew that i would have to had the Plus model, 6.2″ of that infinity screen, it was perfect!
So i made the pre order of it on the very begin of April and i’m expecting to receive it in the next week, from 19 to 21, i really hope that they delivery it on schedule, has is the only advantage for the pre orders this year, in the last year they gave Gear VR for the pre orders of the S7, such a shame.
|Screen size||5.8 inches||6.2 inches|
|Dimensions||148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm, 155g||159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm, 173g|
|Camera||12MP main, 8MP front||12MP main, 8MP front|
|Storage||64GB + MicroSD||64GB + MicroSD|
|Software||Android 7.0||Android 7.0|
All around the S8 is nothing super fancy in my opinion, we have the arguably bad located fingerprint sensor, the maintain of the 4Gb of ram from the S7 and the software version remaining the 7.0 since google has launched 7.1 months ago.
The good part come in the form of an excellent big bright and colorful screen, Bluetooth 5.0 with is bigger ranges and two way audio, wireless charging that i love and use everyday, the software on nougat that have some excellent functionalities, the 64Gb of storage incorporated that is always better than the 32Gb that i have in the S7, even with the expandable storage extra space is always good 🙂 and the water resistant chassis that i use more than i thought (like watching videos on the shower, yes it’s true).
But the true is that is a great upgrade and a excellent smartphone, too pricey, but if you compare to the market you have some other brands with less innovations that ask the same or even higher that the 919,90 € from the S8.
Can’t wait for the next week!
