If you had your choice, which would you purchase and why? S8 or S8 Plus?

I know what I'd choose, but want to hear from you first! Sound off!

It depends on whether or not the screen is flat or curved. I'd prefer whichever has a flat screen. If both have a flat screen, then I'd like the bigger one.

I'm sure I read they're not releasing a flat screen this time around? Maybe someone will correct me.

Probably the smaller version for me, but with the improved screen to body ratio maybe the Plus won't be so big. I'm open minded!

With the redesign I don't know. I used to love the notes but the S7 Edge was to big. I just wanted an everyday carry phone and the S7 fit that better. I might keep my S7 after hearing the reviews as other than VR and some other typical Samsung oddities I like it.

I do have a concern with the new trend of reduced or no bezel designs making a case a must. I've always preferred to run naked.

But overall I do love the direction of the reduced or eliminated bezels.

Between the two, definitely the S8 plus.The bigger the screen, the better it is for me. My real choice however, is waiting for the Note 8.;)

Big screens with small bezels are my preference.

I would imagine then the S8 plus would be about the size of the V20 if the Bezels are reduced even though the screen will be 6.2 rumored.

Bigger is better.

OK someone says - it's not the size of the boat - it's the motion of the ocean.

....But you can't get to China in a canoe.

I would think the regular, 5.7 inch model will sell a ton more versus the 6.2 inch. I will be buying the larger version though. Since the 6.2 incher might be more or a niche like the Note, will it be harder to find cases for the Plus size possibly?

I would choose.... wait, what's the difference between S8 and S8 plus? Only size? If so, I would go for the little one, I have a small hand.
