The Galaxy Note 8 is the beast you couldn’t find in the S8 Plus, just looking at its premium design you could tell this device would knock you off your feet. Weighing 195 grams, this is definitely the heaviest Samsung phone ever. With just an inch taller than the S8 Plus, this baby stands tall at 6.3-inch.Even though it comes with the same 1440 x 2960 pixels like the S8 Plus and roughly 521 ppi pixel density, the Quad HD resolution should make images and videos super sharp.

The Galaxy Note 8 also comes with an S-Pen that you can use to draw and translate. It also runs smoothly with a massive 6GB of RAM and is the best among the 9 best Samsung phones listed here.

This is the very first ‘Plus’ phone I have seen with very similar features to the initial, they are so much identical that you can hardly tell the difference. It features a similar curved glass and metal design with the S8. It is the second best among the list of 9 best Samsung phones to buy in 2018.

The only notable difference is the 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display, compared to S8 5.8-inch. But disappointingly it still has the same 1440 x 2960 pixels resolution as the Galaxy S8. That’s quite a bummer to me, I think the pixels should have been increased a little bit to suit the large screen.

This is no doubt among the 9 best Samsung phones to buy in 2017. The Galaxy S8 is one of the very best Android phones you can buy right now. It is the Slimmest Samsung phone out there, and with a huge 5.8-inch display, making it more compact than most 5.5-inch smartphones. Thanks to its almost invisible bezel and the lack of a physical home button, the Samsung S8 is a beauty to behold.

Personally, one of the things I like about the S8 is the fact that the home button has been removed. Thereby giving this phone a futuristic look. The fingerprint sensor was also moved to the back compared to the S7, its now beside the rear camera just like Infinix and Tecno.

Looking like the S6 right? Well, there isn’t much difference between the two phones, although Samsung introduced the water resistant feature which was missing in the S6. With an IP68 rating, the Galaxy S7 can survive underwater of only 1.5-meter depth for up to half an hour.

Another tricky stunt on the S7 is the camera, like how can you go from having 16MP on the S6 to 12MP on the S7. If that isn’t a bummer, I don’t know what is. Really disappointing. But generally, its one of the best Samsung phones to buy in 2018.
