The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus has slightly smaller display than Galaxy Note 8. This is one of the most beautiful phone available today and offers a large 6.2-inch display in a small and ergonomic form factor.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus

When big phones are concerned, the iPhone 8 Plus can’t be left behind. The iPhone 8 Plus is not a particularly big screen smartphone as the device only features a 5.5-inch display, but it is the largest phone running Apple’s iOS. Like all iPhones, the device is super smooth, no matter what you do on it. With iOS, you also have a ton of quality applications on it. The iPhone 8 Plus also has an OIS-enabled dual camera setup, which combines two 12MP rear cameras. This enables the phone to get really good ‘Bokeh’ shots and 2X optical zoom.
