    finally got my pre-order s8 today. I am a little disappointed in it, the specs said it was about the same size as the note 7, but the screen is smaller then my s7 edge. screen looks nice, but I guess I should have spent the extra hundred to get the 8+, but I guess then II would be getting a screen same size as my s7 Edge

    The screen is bigger than the S7 edge both on paper and In person, at least on the plus, but yeah the regular S8 is pretty small

    I can't say enough how much nicer this phone feels with the plus size over the smaller variant. I find the phone is easier to handle, type, take pics and to reach the FPS. I'm glad I exchanged mine out and went with the plus. That being said I really loved the S8 as well. Can't go wrong but the size makes this phone really feel special.

    The 8 + is the one about the size of the Note 7. The regular S is certainly not, as you've found

    8 plus same size??? I think your ruler is broken. Both screens are bigger than the 7 edge.

    I got an S8+ for exactly this reason, I had originally ordered an S8 but after finally seeing the devices in person a few days later I changed my preorder to the plus

    As for total area the S8+ does have more screen than the note 7 even with the new aspect ratio
