Intro

I think many of you have seen ads and news about the brand new Samsung Galaxy S8+. Everywhere I go, I’ll see something related to the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. If Samsung is this confident with the Galaxy S8+, then it ought to be something great – but just how great is great?

One quick note – both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ has the exact same specs, except for its physical screen size, dimensions, weight, and battery. Other than that, it’s pretty much the same.

Let’s find out in our full review here.

Unboxing

Frankly speaking, I don’t have the box at all. However, I’ve gotten help from a friend of mine and get you pictures of the phone’s box and contents.

In some ways, I feel like the Galaxy S8+’s box is a lot sleeker and subtle. I actually love the new box aesthetics more than the previous Galaxy S7/S7edge’s design.

Opening up the box reveals the bunch of accessories that come with it. It’s similar to what was found in the Galaxy S7, but this time the main highlight is the AKG earphones – which I don’t have it with my review unit of the Galaxy S8+, so I can’t give you any of my impressions on it.

By the way, that hard shell case was given for free as a part of Samsung’s complimentary gift. It is not included in the box itself.

One thing I need to highlight here – the included USB-C cable is actually strengthened. You know that point where USB cables start to fray? Samsung has strengthened it on the S8/S8+’s included USB-C cable.

Samsung is really paying attention to the what users’ want.
