    I pre-ordered the + from T-Mobile. Currently have an iPhone 7 Plus. Now I'm having doubts if maybe I should have went with the regular. The + is just massively tall. I have long fingers but still wondering if maybe the 5.8" would give me an overall better experience.

    Anyone else unsure of themselves like me? I'm wondering what the ratio is to people pre-order regular vs +? Can't really post a poll since the forums are separated people would skew the vote based on the forum I post it in.

    From the videos I've watched, it is only a couple of mm taller than the iPhone. Shouldn't be a stretch. I have the note 5 and it is about the same size as well.

    I preordered this morning and then went to Best Buy just awhile ago where they had both S8 and S8+ on display.

    After playing with both for about half an hour I'm happy to say I'm good with the S8+

    This makes me feel 72% better about my decision. Thanks!

    I went to BestBuy on 5th Avenue in NYC right after the Samsung event was over and was surprised that they had the phones out already. The S8+ is a hair wider than my current S6 edge (the S8 is actually a little narrower than my S6 edge). Yes, it is taller but because it is not so wide it fits comfortably in my hands. My hands are not that large but I had no real issues navigating the screen with one hand. I put the phone in my front pants pocket and the pocket of my dress shirt and it fit fine. It did stick out of the top of my back pocket a little - but I never really keep my phone there. No second thoughts for me.

    I had a hard time at first too. Thought the S8+ was gonna be massive. In reality the S8 is smaller than the S7e and the S8+ is very comparable to the IPhone 7+. I went with the + and I'm very happy with the decision Watch:

    I think you won't regret choosing the one with the bigger battery. So far for all those phones with a bigger and smaller version, the battery life will be much better on the bigger one even if the screen is bigger.

    I'm with you. Went to Best Buy and they had an actual 8+ and 8 I could play with. It was an easy decision to get the 8+. Reminds me of the size of the Note 7. I put it in my front jeans pocket, and it fit great. I pre-ordered it on the spot. Got $100 off and a free VR for pre-ordering at best buy

    I'm second guessing the screen size after realizing that the screen is the same size as the screen on the Nintendo Switch.

    That's why I went with the Plus. I didn't want a phone teh same size or smaller than the s7 edge I currently have which i think is too small.

    Thanks to all you guys who mentioned Best buy have them on display. I know where I'll be heading to tonight after work. Preordered the s8+. Pretty sure I'm going to fine with the size, as I use large phones for a long time and love it.

    So you changed carriers too? Thought they only offered the discount to new subscribers?

    The only thing that's preventing me from preordering the S8+ is waiting out for the Note 8. Ugh such a long wait.

    I didn't change carriers. They didn't say anything about that. The guy at the Samsung bar, and two separate employees told me I would get $100 off, plus the VR. It wouldn't be the first time these people are wrong about stuff, so I hope you're wrong, but I guess we'll see.

    I'm definitely waiting for the Note 8. I'll get my wife an S8+.

    I figure it's about a $300-$400 decision, if I had the S8+ for 6 months or so and ended up getting the Note 8. If I had to pay off the S8+, trade in my S8+, and then pay the taxes on the Note 8, that's roughly what it would cost. To me, that's worth it. I had the Note 7, and while I like the S7 Edge, it isn't what I wanted from the start. It was the only good choice after turning in the Note 7, and the rub was I had to step back in time with an older phone on an older OS. I use my phone for business as much or more than any other tool, so for me it's really pretty easy to justify

    So, I was second guessing myself also...ordered the Plus this morning because I couldn't decide last night...all I did all day was question if I should have ordered the regular s8. My favorite phone of all has been the Samsung s6 edge+, which was actually sized between the s8 and s8+....definitely thinner though at 6.9mm.

    I did try out the s7 edge when it was released and it was too small...no way I was going to make the same mistake again, I'm glad I went with the bigger phone..

    Ha! ... I hope I'm wrong too, thought I read it somewhere but maybe not. Wish they sold Tmo phones.

    So it's about the same size as the Note 5? I know what it shows comparing to others online like the LG G6 but to hear it from someone who can actually judge better than me I would like to hear. I loved the size of the Note 7 and I currently have the 7Edge so I am having 2nd thoughts and wondering if I should actually wait on the Note 8 but I just don't think I can hold out that much longer!

    I've been using a Moto X Pure now since they came out. I ordered the S8+ since they are essentially the same width. I'm gaining screen all four sides though. Shouldn't be any harder to hold than the Moto X.

    I got to play with the 8+. It is awesome for me. I currently have a S7 Edge. The phones size difference is not really that much. But the screen size is huge. The screen is so much bigger and looks great. I am very excited as this is what a phone should be as far as screen to device size. Hardly any bezzles. The S8 feels small in my hands after using my S7 Edge to me. The S8+ is the sweet spot for me...

    Not at all. I want a phone as close as possible in size to the Note line. The s7 edge is too small which is why I went with the plus model even though I could have got the Tmobile s8 for $650 on samsungs website.

    If I wanted a regular sized one I would have just stuck with my S7 Edge for awhile longer. I need a bigger device.
