Background and Identification

With the S8 series, Samsung's line of Galaxy phones gets tantalizingly close to the vaunted "nothing but display" ideal. With a curved edge-to-edge display, minimal top and bottom bezels, and a relocated fingerprint sensor, Samsung's smartphones are visually stunning—but like their predecessors, troublesome to repair.

The S8 and S8+ appear almost identical apart from their dimensions and screen size—the larger S8+ features a 6.2" display, with the same 2960 x 1440 resolution as its smaller 5.8" sibling.
