To be honest and if the comparison is not clear enough, the two extremely obvious differences between the S8 and S8+ are the battery capacity and the phone sizes.
Personally, I prefer the S8. It’s slick, light and using it with one hand on a crowded train will give me no problem.
What about you? S8 or S8+?
