    So at which point does a phablet crosses over to become a tablet? 6.2 inch or 6.5 inch or 7 inch? Do you guys think the S8 Plus will fit in your pocket comfortably? Or will you have to carry it by hand? Trying to see how it'll fit in my life, 5.7 inch is the maximum size that I'm willing to go for a phone.

    Galaxy S8 Plus considered a tablet? Too big you think?-c6bgcwjxmaadldf.jpg

    I can't wait for the S8+. Time will tell if it's too big but it looks like it will be the size of the iphone 7+ so I'm fine with it

    Nothing beats watching YouTube, Netflix or ummmmm " whatever " on a large resolution screen and I can simply drop my 6" plus size into my handbag

    Honestly even though it is 6.2" it is just barely bigger than the note 7 there, so it should be about the size of the iphone 7 plus. So fitting in pockets shouldn't be an issue, but there is still the issue of "reachability". Even though bezels are shrinking, the screens are still getting bigger so getting to the top of the phone is probably out of the question with one hand.

    I think I just need to accept that one handed phones are pretty much a dying breed and I'll be able to move on.

    It's funny to think that the Galaxy S8+ has the same screen size as the brand new Nintendo Switch. But I have to keep reminding myself that the Galaxy S8 has no bezels which makes it a lot smaller

    So I guess it's safe to say, the Galaxy S8+ is a small tablet at this stage.

    I'm getting the s8 plus! Only thing is with no bezels is that you will want a really thick case because then you will be covering the sides of the screen when using the phone which could interfere with viewing of the screen.

    I'd be fine with it... Right now I'm on an LG V20, which is OK but I could see going bigger... I keep my phone in my backpack when I'm on the go anyway, never in my pocket so it wouldn't be a problem if it was a little bigger. I think 6" is definitely approaching tablet territory. That's just not a problem in my mind... I'm considering this phone as my next upgrade.

    Carried the Nexus 6 in my pocket with no problems - I'm sure this would be pretty much the same.

    Can't wait.

    The Note 7 size was fine. I will be getting the S8 Plus! I personally like the Note 7 design better. Still mad over it because if I had the Note 7 I would NOT be getting the 8 Plus and be waiting for the Note 8

    Honestly I keep hoping they will finally release that magical "refurb note 7" and I will just import one here. lol

    If they made this phone so that every person could single-handedly operated then people would be ******** that it is too small.

    It seems a bit large, but I'd deal with it. But the rumored 3500 mAh battery combined with a 6.2" screen worries me more than the size.

    I don't get why everyone is freaking out about the size. It's just a tad bigger than the note7. It'll fit in your pocket comfortably. Trust me.

    Once you go big, you'll never go back, is what I always say! But seriously, bigger is better, in so many ways.

    Huawei Mate 9 is tad 1.5mm wider than iPhone 6S Plus but uses more real estate to get from 5.5 up to 5.9" screen while being a couple grams lighter & 4000mAh https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016...nough-battery/

    I love bigger screens. The extra real estate is great for my eyes. I can see so much more. I think 6.2 is pretty much my sweet spot. I could go 6.5, but not much bigger as it would start to get hard to carry it around. As has been mentioned in many articles, the fact that the bezels are so much smaller, the total size of the phone will not much bigger at all. I am digging this phone...

    Yeah. Six inches to 6.2 seems to be right. I have a iPhone 6s Plus and the size of the phone is about right. Not to big in my hands and I can still fit it comfortably in my pocket. I plan on switching (back) to Samsung with the S8 Plus. The overall size of the device isn't much bigger than my 6s Plus, yet I get more screen real estate.

    I don't think there is an actual size that is considered a phablet vice tablet. However, I believe that once you get over 6.4" or so, then yes, it isn't a phone or phablet anymore.

    I'm curious to see what this 6.2" screen is actually like with the taller aspect ratio. That's a big number diagonally, but with the narrower shape it may not be much more of an immersive experience than say a 5.7" device. Holding it vertically or horizontally, it'll cover less of your field of vision than a phone with a 6.2" screen at 16:9.

    Kind of reminds of when Apple brought out the iPhone 5 and said "People have been looking for a bigger screen, but you don't want bigger. You want TALLER... Eh?... Eh??"
