Samsung Galaxy S8 video review

In addition to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Dylan also take a sneak peek at the Samsung DeX, the dock that turns your Galaxy S8 into a desktop computer.

Big or small?
Samsung Galaxy S8: a handy size
The Samsung Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch screen. This might seem a bit big, especially compared to the older Galaxy S7's 5.1-inch screen, but thanks to the Galaxy S8's small bezels and compact casing you can easily operate with 1 hand. The bigger S8 Plus builds upon the same idea, but is a bit more difficult to operate with 1 hand due to it's 6.2-inch screen.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus: enjoy your movies to the fullest
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus sports a luxurious 6.2-inch screen, which is substantially bigger than the screen of its little brother, the Galaxy S8. The bigger screen provides you with a better overview, which is useful for reading news items, watching videos, and scrolling through your social media. Its massive size also comes with a drawback: it can be difficult to operate with 1 hand.
There are only a few differences between the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. In case you can't decide, you should ask yourself the following question: "do I prefer a handy size or a bigger screen?" Personally, I prefer a bigger screen, especially when watching movies and reading news items. But if you value handiness above a large screen, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the phone for you.
