Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Launched. What is the difference between both?

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were launched on the evening of 29 March 2017.  These two sets were one of the most awaited ones in 2017. Both are awesome in design and features as well. They have cool accessories like Gear 360, Improved Gear VR, and the “Bixby“-Samsung’s very own virtual assistant, also known as the iPhone Siri killer.

What is the difference between S8 and S8 Plus

Let’s find out the difference between Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.

Display and Size

Without uncertainty, the feature change to Samsung’s new leads are their showcases. Both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus get immense new 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch shows separately, yet the best thing about this is effect these huge boards have had on their size:

System S8 – 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm ( 5.86 x 2.68 x 0.31-inch), 155g (5.36oz)

System S8 Plus – 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm (6.00 x 3.09 x 0.31-inch), 173g (oz)

Galaxy S8 can be considered very similar to S7 in terms of size and weight. However, S8 plus is a lot bigger and heavier than S7. Samsung has created a new evolution in the smartphone industry by introducing the Bezel-less display with the hashtag #UnboxYourPhone

We can say that the primary difference between S8 and S8 Plus is their size.

Cameras – Incremental Upgrades Raise Concerns

S8 and S8 Plus have quite similar cameras. Google Pixel used an inferior camera module and used a better image processing unit. This swept the market wit unparallel competition. Samsung also thinks to follow this policy by using the same rear camera as S7 and including a better image processing unit.

All things considered, you’ll discover a 12 megapixel, f/1.7 opening shooter on the back with a similar blend of Sony and Samsung variations dispatching all inclusive and another attention on handling burst photography. This implies Samsung take different shots of a subject as standard then join them together, precisely the same Google did as such well with the Pixel.

Equipment changes have been made is to the front camera with both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus highlighting redesigned 8-megapixel sensors contrasted with the disappointing 5MP modules in a year ago’s telephones.

I expect the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus to be among the best cell phone cameras of 2017, yet it appears the entryway has been left partially open for both Apple and Google to outperform them with their leads later in the year.

Performance

People expected to see new and highly advanced chipsets in S8 and S8 Plus and Samsung has adopted new chipsets for S8 and S8 Plus.

  • Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus (US) – Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset (4x 2.35GHz and 4x 1.9GHz Kryo CPUs), Adreno 540 GPU; 4GB of RAM
  • Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus (Europe and Asia) – Exynos 8895 (4x 2.3 GHz & 4x 1.7 GHz CPUs), ARM Mali-G71 MP20 GPU; 4GB of RAM

Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset will feature on US sold Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones

We don’t know why different Chipsets but Samsung has claimed Qualcomm and Exynos to be quite similar and this difference will not lead to major differences in Performance. A variant with 6GB of RAM may come to the Asian market, but Samsung has no plans to release it in the US or Europe at this time.

Battery Life – Stagnation Brings Concern

Which brings me to maybe the greatest range of worry in Samsung’s new cell phones. Having been damaged by the unstable local of its Galaxy Note 7, this year Samsung has taken no chances and fitted the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus with commonplace battery limits:

Cosmic system S8 – 3000 mAh (same as Galaxy S7)

Cosmic system S8 Plus – 3500 mAh (same as Galaxy S7 Edge)

Samsung continues to ape core Android functionality like Google Now

Samsung must have tried hard to get the battery fixed after the huge disasters with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Cost And Storage –

Another difference is the cost and storage between the both.

Galaxy S8 – 64GB – $750/€799/£689

Galaxy S8 Plus – 64GB – $850/€899/£779

Early Verdict

“For me Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are two of the most visually stunning smartphones ever made. Their vision of an ‘all display’ fascia represents the future of smartphone design and this will be enough to sell millions of units around the world.” said Gordon from Forbes.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus remains incredibly thin and I'd have preferred to see them slightly thicker with larger batteries

I also feel that they are visually beautiful while some less on the inside than expected. However they are sure to give a boost to the sales. Only thing that needs to be taken care of is not repeating the Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s issue with the S8 and S8 Plus.
