Head-To-Head: Samsung Galaxy S8 Vs. Google Pixel
The standout characteristic of the Galaxy S8 is not necessarily that the display is so large but that Samsung has fit the large display onto a phone that doesn't feel enormous overall. The key is the lack of bezels on the S8; the phone's "Infinity" display covers 83 percent of the front of the device.
The measurement on the Galaxy S8 is 5.86 x 2.68 inches. The Pixel, meanwhile, measures 5.6 x 2.7 inches. That means the S8, despite having a 16 percent larger display, is actually not too much bigger overall than the Pixel.
The Pixel also has a slightly greater thickness of 0.33 of an inch, versus 0.31 of an inch for the Galaxy S8.
