It can be a challenge choosing from a large selection of smartphones available today and trying to figure out the one that is best for you can be another big hassle. Your smartphone is most likely to be the most important gadget in your life, and you’ll probably be spending a few more years with the one you’ve purchased recently. Right now, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Plus might be the best option for you as it has the best display on any smartphone right now, a head-turning premium design, top-of-the-line camera, reliable battery life and industry-leading performance.

Starting from a market standard price tag of $850, Samsung’s latest flagship offers an innovative new design for a smartphone by stripping away the bezels around its 6.2-inch infinity display. That massive 18.5:9 screen ratio enhances the entire viewing experience while retaining those pitch-perfect colors and sharpness we’ve come to expect from Samsung in recent times. It’s no surprise that even Apple is purchasing the screens for their new iPhone 8 from Samsung. Oh, and it’s bright, reaching a blinding 912cd/m2 on auto brightness.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ features a powerful 1.9GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 8895 processor backed by 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via micro SD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ packs a 12-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel front shooter for super-sharp selfies. S8+’s camera app is one of the best available and the camera app features a new floating shutter button, whose location can be adjusted on the screen so that taking selfies and one-handed photos is much easier on its large display.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ runs Android 7.0 and is powered by a 3500mAh non-removable battery. It measures 159.50 x 73.40 x 8.10 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 173.00 grams. The S8+ is water resistant to depths of 1.5m for 30 minutes with an IP68 rating, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5, which should hopefully make both front and back more scratch and shatter resistant.

It’s a stellar performer that aptly blends beauty and horsepower. Couple that with a surprisingly comfortable, narrow body and the Galaxy S8 Plus offers great longevity in a package that won’t make your hands sore. S8 Plus is still one of the most impressive packages you’ve ever seen. If you’re looking for a well-balanced flagship with a great display and a camera then I’d say this one is worth looking into.
