    I feel like the S8+ was not as big as it seems. Watching videos in landscape mode didn't feel right, screen looks smaller than a standard 5.7 inch. Are you used to the size yet?

    In 5 minutes of using it, huge difference from my previous phones, S7 edge, Pixel XL and iPhone 7 plus.

    Definitely takes time to get used the aspect. Sometimes, too much of the video gets cropped out. It's a hit or miss experience.

    No issues here. Bigger screen than my note 5 had at 5.7 inches and I can tell.

    I know what you mean, OP (at least I think so) I have a Huawei Mate 9 (5.9" screen) and when I heard this was a 6.2", I couldn't help myself. Now, the SIde bevels on the Huawei are barely there, the top and bottom bezels are 3/8" and 1/2" (respectively). When the S8+ arrived I thought at first they had sent the S8. It's about 1/4" narrower than my Mate and about the same length. I really like having a HUGE phone, so I was a little disappointed it wasn't outrageous. Smaller screen ratio.

    This is my boyfriend's phone when the Note 8 comes out anyway, so I'm happy. Hopefully the Note 8 will be ridic.

    For me it's only annoying on social media. Videos that are posted to snap chat or Instagram stories will have parts cut off.

    I got used to it as soon as I got this phone. I love watching videos and playing games on this screen more than I did on the S7E

    A bit weird at times but I'm fine with it.

    Love it, especially while using chrome or my preferred reddit app which supports the aspect ratio.

    Never had an issue. Easy to adapt to. At least for me.
