    Samsung S8 Plus is the phone that comes under the too big phone. The 6.2 inch device may not be suitable for all. Here are some of the specifications are

    The Look and Feel
    The phone is a perfect blend of bigger size and comfortable handling. The Galaxy S8 has become more curvy this time. The phone looks completely glass. There is a metal frame, but it is hardly noticeable. However, it may not be quite comfortable for handling. The phone is quite slippery. The IP68 Water resistance properties have made a comeback once again.

    Display
    Galaxy S8 Plus has a screen size of 6.2 inches. The super AMOLED quality is just awesome as has been the case with almost all Samsung smartphones. The resolution reads 1440 x 2960 WQHD and the pixel density is 529 ppi. The display quality is quite excellent. Be it the crispness of the text and videos, sunlight legibility and viewing angles - you can expect the highest quality as has always found on a Samsung devices before. Then there is the EDGE display. You now have the option of customising your EDGE display features. You can set it up quite easily.

    The insides
    As you would expect, Galaxy S8 Plus is powered by the in house Exynoss processor. The Octacore processor clocking at 2.35 GHz should be the best performer. Graphics are taken care of by Mali-G71 MP20 GPU. While many smartphones even in the medium budget have been coming up with 4 to 6 GB RAM, Samsung has settled with 4 GB RAM on its Galaxy S8 Plus. The LPDDR4X RAM should offer you an excellent performance. The internal storage is 64 GB. The lack of a higher memory variant such as 128 GB may be something power users will resent. But, yes - there is a microSD card support to expand the storage capacity by another 256 GB. The recent reports have indicated that a 128 GB version will be available with 6 GB RAM soon.

    Camera
    Samsung does not believe in hiking the Megapixel count for better camera functionality. It rather focusses on the pixel size. The same is evident from the 12 MP sensor used on Galaxy S8 Plus. The pixel size has been upped to f/1.7. The Dual Pixel Phase Detection Auto Focus ensures better and faster focus. This helps in avoiding blurring or overexposure. The camera app is just great as it has been all along. There are enough modes and filters available. The PRO feature can be an added advantage. If you are a selfie lover, you are blessed with a 8 MP front camera.

    Software
    The phone runs on Android Nougat 7.0 out of the box. The TouchWiz customisation has been quite lean these days. In fact, the name TouchWiz has ceased to exist now. The interface is now referred to as Samsung Experience. You can swipe down on any screen to get the search box and the complete app drawer. The performance leaves nothing much desired. Everything is perfectly in place. Samsung has come up with its own Bixby personal assistant. It has not been launched as yet in its entirety, but S8 Plus has support for it. Google Assistant continues to have its presence.

    Battery and other features
    The S8 Plus comes with a 3500 mAh battery capacity. It should offer you over ten hours of movie play back. The advanced battery saving features let you squeeze in as much power as you would want to in cases of emergencies. The phone supports faster charging with USB Type C port.
    The phone does pack in all the necessary features like Bluetooth, WiFi and other essential services.

    Availability and Pricing
    The phone is available at select online stores and also for offline purchase. You can get it for Rs. 56999.

    Live....and Let Live!
