The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is currently available on Amazon at a highly discounted price. While usually, the phone costs $824, it’s at a 28% discounted price of $589. You save a whopping $235 which is kind of a big deal considering you don’t frequently get as many good deals on smartphones.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a predecessor to the latest Galaxy S9+, it still rocks the usability part, and it is even considered rapt with latest smartphone trends. But, it’s hard to believe that it’s a year-old smartphone. And that’s a good premonition.
It is the S8 that initiated the ‘aggressively cropped bezel‘ revolution; in turn, inspiring other manufacturers to blatantly copy the design until the iPhone X modernized the game with the introduction of the notch. The Galaxy S8+’s specs are also fairly good as compared to the latest flagships; including its successor– the Samsung Galaxy S9+. The S8+ has a 6.2-inch bezel-less display, dubbed the “infinity display” in Samsung’s terms, with a resolution of 2960 x 1440. The device is powered by an Octa-core (2.3 GHz, Quad core, M2 Mongoose + 1.7 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A53) processor paired with 4 GB of RAM.
Sparing all the technical jargon, the device still sifts at almost all the tasks you throw at it; be it photo editing, gaming, document sharing etc. On top of that, the 3500 mAh battery makes sure that you won’t have to be always stuck to the wall, not to mention its wireless charging capabilities. The phone also has an IP68 rating, which makes it water and dust resistant. Camera-wise, it has a single camera sensor at the back (unlike smartphones with dual camera sensors today) which is capable of capturing shots at 12 megapixels.
Samsung’s always been excellent at providing visually attractive smartphones, and the S8+ is no exception. With the curved screen at the front and the glossy glass back exponentiated with the addition of soothing colors, there is still no competition for this phone, except for its successor; which, for some reason, looks exactly the same. The design on the S8+ exudes a sense of confidence and professionalism. And that is what matters the most, among other aspects, while choosing the correct smartphone.
