Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus - Expert Review

The Good

Large device with beautiful design, powerful configuration, wireless and fast charging equipped.

The Bad

Single rear camera, fingerprint sensor and expensive.

The Bottom Line

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is larger sibling of the Galaxy S8 with same design and configuration. The phone is a true flagship and the most talked about device of 2017. The beautiful bezel-less display with curved edge design makes it an eye candy and powerful specifications make it even more desirable. Both the camera on the device deliver excellent results. The only thing that is is not good is the fingerprint sensor. Rest is all good.
