    Did anyone switch from the s8+ to the s8?

    I didn't. I love the screen size and the room it affords me when multi tasking.

    I don't think I would do it. I just bought my fiancee a regular S8. It does feel good in the hand but I like having the larger screen. She has tiny hands so it's perfect for her.

    I tried them both out as soon as Verizon got the display sets in store, instantly fell in love with the S8+. 100% worth the extra money.

    Same here. I had preordered the 8 before seeing any in person. The specs online were deceiving. In person? Night n day different. Cancelled the preorder and preordered the 8 Plus

    I have the S8+ since April and have just bought an S8. While I love the bigger screen, I think the S8+ is just too long. It won't even fit in the wireless charging bin of my car. I will give the S8 a try and see if I like it better.

    I am going from a 6S+ to an S8 so I will gain height while losing some width. But what I will also be gaining is comfort in the hand and the ability to pocket the phone without feeling like I have a brick housed in my jeans. The 6S+ in a case was just annoyingly oversized.

    I own the s8+ but i have to say when i held the s8 in my hands at the store a couple of days ago i got some buyers remorse . Although i am a big guy 6'7 with big hands but the s8 seemed to be alot easier in one handed operation but whats holding me back from the switch i cant really sacrifice the battery life

    If the screen is too big for you to operate comfortably in one hand, have you tried one-handed mode? I don't use it very often, but it does come in handy from time to time.

    Bought the S8+ first and didn't like the size. It was uncomfortable to me. Returned that and a few weeks later got the S8. Much better form factor for my tastes.

    For the first 24 hours I pondered if the S8 was too darn long. Now it feels like a natural extension of my right hand.

    I also bought the S8+ on launch day and loved it. I later sold it for the Keyone and have since come back to the regular S8.

    As of now, I like the S8 better than the Plus. One handed use is awesome and I'm getting the same battery life. So far, so good.

    I just did this move myself, S8+ on eBay right now.

    It just feels better in the hand, much like the plus iPhones I loved using the screen but it became a burden to carry it around tbh, too big for front jeans pocket, pokes out of rear pockets etc. Don't get me wrong I have used larger phones happily for a long time but the form factor of the S8 feels great and the crappy FP sensor placement is far less of a problem on the smaller device too.

    I was worried about battery but after a package disabler pro blitz I have got it comparable with the plus (yes I know a similar blitz on the plus would improve that further too)

    I like them both, but even with big hands, the s8 gets the edge in ease of use. no problem reaching the fingerprint reader and it just pockets easier. it was a nice change from the s7e which is wider.
    however, the benefits of the Big Screen and larger antenna cannot be denied.

    You guys selling the S8+, you have it paid off or are you planning to payoff with sale proceeds. I know ebay you can probably sell then pay off, but Swappa must payoff then sell

    I just purchased the s8 again and while i did play with the s8+ this longer phone design is going to limit me to the smaller version.. I just wish it had a bigger battery, im on the go alot so having a phone fit in a variety of different size pockets without sticking out too much is necessary for me. I had the note 4 and loved the screen size, but it felt like a tablet in my pocket so I downsized and dont plan on ever going bigger.

    I did. It's such a better experience. The fingerprint sensor is easier to reach. The size is much more manageable. And the battery life lasts almost as long as the S8+. I don't regret switching at all.

    Not the S8+ but a couple years on large-ish phones wore on me. S8 is perfect, imo.

    Never had a second thought about the S8 after playing with both.

    I did the opposite. I bought and used the S8 for a couple of weeks. While in the in hand feeling is nice and better than the S7 Edge, it didn't quite match the battery use on my S7 Edge (Snapdragon S8 vs Exynos S7E). I ordered the S8+ which I'll be receiving on Monday. The FP placement was a mess on the S8 so I'm pretty sure the Plus will only be worse. Hopefully the S8+ will match the battery life on my S7E. And since the S7E and S8+ are more or less the same width, I would be comfortable with one handed use.

    The FP sensor is worse for sure. I had the S8+ for a couple of months and pretty much used the iris unlock exclusively, have had the S8 a week and use the FP most of the time, hardly use the iris. This was not a conscious decision just how it played out for me.

    What did you do with the S8. Most carriers have the 14 day window or something among those lines
