    The S8+ will be a huge phone or should I say phablet? It can be that because of it's huge display, it may be good deal for approximately half of the Samsung Galaxy 'S' line lovers. Or what you say?

    Well, the + is only marginally larger than the edge. 2mm taller and 5mm wider, that's not much, especially when you consider the S8+ has a screen that's almost 3/4" larger.

    I am one that LOVES larger screens. I've used and enjoyed all the Note phones, the Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, and LG V20. I'm interested in seeing the full specs on the SPlus. I'm hoping it's a little wider then my current 7Edge

    I'm interested in how it handles in real life. I've had problems using my S7 Edge without a case on it. If this one has even smaller bezels I don't know how it will handle.

    I'm in agreement with you about large screens albeit that it can make one handed
    typing/texting/scrolling difficult for those with small hands. That being said, I use
    my 5.7" phone rather than my tablet for most things inluding reading and viewing films.

    Its funny that only a couple years ago the term 'Phablet' was defined as any device that had a screen size larger than 5.0" inches in diagonal length. But more recently when looking at wikipedia, the term has changed a little

    Phablets typically have a diagonal display measurement ranging from 5.3–6.99 inches. however, some currently consider only those with a size greater than 6 inches
    I would use the Galaxy S8 Plus as a tablet. To me, its too big to be a phone now. at 6.1" (6.2) inches. Things are getting slightly out of hand.

    Since I've started using larger newer phones, I have rarely been on our laptop at home

    I've always had bigger phones since the 1st Note came out. Haven't looked back since. However, if the phone is going to be good, the screen size will be part of the reason.

    The S8+ is no wider than the S7Edge and narrower than the iPhone 7S+. The screen size is larger because the S8+ is almost 3/4" taller. The screen ratio is 20:9 instead of 16:9.

    I thought the ratio was going to be 18:9?

    No wider?? I was hoping it will be at least minimally wider. Wednesday can't come soon enough.

    If it's no wider and ends up at $950 I don't know.... will see. The Note 7 was only 859.

    I agree. For me the Note 7 had the perfect width and was priced under $900.
