Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus vs S7 Edge
The previous model, the S7 doesn’t have a plus version, but there was the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Samsung has bought out and S8 plus rather than continuing with the edge series so we are going to compare the S8 plus to the S7 edge.
The first noticeable difference between the two is the display screen. The S7 edge came with a 5.5 inch display screen whereas now you get 6.2 inch display screen. You get less bezel with the S8 plus which really gives the front of the phone a futuristic look. The S8 plus also comes with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
The front facing camera has improved on this new model, the S7 edge had a 5 MP front facing camera whereas now you get 8 MP. The rear camera remains the same with its dual pixel technology and 12 MP resolution.
This phone comes with the latest Bluetooth version 5.0 where is the previous model had version 4.2. You no longer get a choice of internal storage sizes, the internal storage is now fixed at 64 GB.
With the increase in screen size, there is obviously an increase in phone size and weight. The current stats are: 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1 mm, for the S7 edge they are: 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm. The S8 plus weighs 173 g where is the previous model was 157 g.
