Engadget Review

All of the S8’s accolades apply to the S8 Plus as well: It’s a stellar performer that aptly blends beauty and horsepower. Its bigger body, however, means Samsung was able to squeeze a larger battery inside. Couple that with a surprisingly comfortable, narrow body and the Galaxy S8 Plus offers great longevity in a package that won’t make your hands sore. Bixby’s incompleteness is still annoying, as is the location of the fingerprint sensor, but the S8 Plus is still one of the most impressive packages we’ve ever seen.
