What is the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 +?

Samsung Galaxy S8 and its version S8 + is one of the most talked about smartphones of 2017. Indeed, Samsung introduced its new flagship, which impressed everyone: both buyers and experts, first of all, with its design. It is not surprising that both of these smartphones are in great demand around the world. And today we’ll talk about how these two devices differ.

Display

The first thing that immediately catches your eye is the diagonal of the display. And in fact, this is almost the main difference between the smartphone. So, the diagonal of the display S8 is 5.8 inches, and S8 + – 6.2 inches.

The maximum resolution is the same – 2960 × 1440 pixels, but the number of pixels per inch is different: 531 PPI for S8 + and 568 PPI for S8.

Device dimensions

Since one model has a larger display diagonal than another, it means devices differ in their size. The width, height and thickness of S8 is 68.10 × 148.90 × 8 mm, S8 + – 73.40 × 159.50 × 8.10 mm, respectively.

Pay attention to the important fact that despite the impressive diagonal of the displays, both smartphones can be safely called compact – thanks to the frameless design.

The weight, of course, is also different and the S8 + weighs more than the younger model: 173 g versus 152 g.

Battery

Since the Galaxy S8 + has a larger display, the manufacturer decided to install a more powerful battery in it – at 3,500 mAh. In S8, its battery capacity is 3000 mAh.

Memory

If initially both devices had the same amount of memory (4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of main memory), a little later Samsung presented the Galaxy S8 + 128GB version, which received 128 GB of RAM and as much as 6 GB of RAM.

Price

Of course, the S8 + version is slightly more expensive, especially when it comes to the S8 + 128GB version. There are no other differences between the devices..
