The Samsung Galaxy 8 Plus Features We’re Really Excited About

The trend with gadgets nowadays is sleek and high-quality visuals. People are not just looking for practicality anymore, they want something that looks stylish and offers the high definition experience too.

This is why Apple and Samsung have been releasing “Plus” variants in their line. It is not just to prolong the current model’s buzz but to produce something that a number of customers are looking for.

For that reason, bigger screens and elegant designs are being released in flagship lines, and one top contender is the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus which you can soon get at Harvey Norman or any tech shop you frequent.

There are a lot of smartphones that will be rolled out this year, apart from Apple and Samsung, of course. If you are currently looking into replacing the one you have now, you will need a guide to help you narrow down your list.

So just like everyone else, we will talk about why the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus should be on top of your list of smartphones to consider buying this year.

6.2-inch display

Obviously, one of the first things we need to talk about is the display. The Galaxy S8 Plus dons a 6.2-inch display and is also narrower than the Apple iPhone 7 Plus which has a 5.5-inch display.

This makes the S8 offer more of a high definition display than other smartphones available on the market. Of course, until Apply unboxes the iPhone 8. But for now, this is your best bet in terms of high rate display.

Gorilla Glass 5

You have probably watched a lot of videos testing the smartphone’s damage proof capabilities, people flinging their phones on walls, dipping them in water and so on.

The Apple phone is made of glass in front and metal on the back. The Galaxy S8 Plus, however, is made of Gorilla Glass 5 at the front and back, and this increases the protection on your smartphone against drops from up to a height of 5 feet or maybe more.

Bluetooth 5.0

The first phones that will support the Bluetooth 5.0 are the Galaxy S8 and Plus flagships. The Bluetooth 5.0 is, in one word, awesome. It offers twice the speed, four times the range, and eight times the broadcasting capacity.

Think of this way, once you have your Galaxy S8 Plus, you can connect two Bluetooth headphones all at once. Additionally, it offers low energy functionality and can coexist with other wireless technologies.


The Samsung counterpart of Apple’s Siri is the intelligent digital assistant called Bixby. Right now, people are saying that it is more powerful than Siri and has three main parts. Bixby Voice will enable you to trigger the voice-powered digital assistant by calling or pressing a button.

Bixby Vision can see through the built-in camera and can identify objects and make a search. Lastly, Bixby Home will give you access to various information when you swipe right from the home screen like the weather.

Wireless charging

Something that is also making everyone giddy is the wireless charging capabilities. You might think that plugging a charger into a wall is not going to be as frustrating, but it actually is, especially if you need your phone for something urgent.

So the slap on a battery pack that will be offered by the Samsung line will get the “plugging in the right cord” out of the way. Rumours say that iPhone 8 would have the wireless charging feature, too, but was scrapped.

We will have to wait until the launch of the iPhone 8, but it seems the Samsung line has made improvements on it.

There only a couple of days until the Samsung Galaxy 8 will be released and we are already looking forward to getting our hands on it!
