Samsung Galaxy S8+

Is the Galaxy S8+ really as cool as Samsung wants you to believe? The CRN Test Center got its hands on the latest iteration of Samsung's flagship phone and the answer is pretty simple: Yes.

The Galaxy S8+ hits stores Friday, along with the Galaxy S8. The major leap forward with the S8+ device is the display -- 6.2-inches -- which is enormous by iPhone standards.

The giant display makes looking through an Excel spreadsheet or PowerPoint doc on a phone a viable experience and, for off-duty hours, watching Netflix or gaming makes more sense on the S8+ than on just about any other phone out there.

Need to know more about DeX, a feature that allows the S8 or S8+ to turn into a desktop? How does the S8 stack up against the iPhone 7 or Google Pixel? Are you simply just curious about the battery life?

The CRN Test Center has everything you need to know before making an upgrade decision later this week.
