The Galaxy S8's screen is better for using apps than the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
Samsung pulled off an amazing feat with the Galaxy S8, the smaller model of the two Galaxy S smartphones that Samsung announced on March 29.
It has a larger 5.8-inch screen than the iPhone 7 Plus' 5.5-inch screen, all while donning a smaller and more comfortable design.
As you might expect, the bigger screen on the Galaxy S8 is better for using apps. Check it out:
The Galaxy S8's screen is different than most smartphones.
By having a taller screen and keeping a narrow width, the Galaxy S8's body remains manageable and comfortable to use.
Apart from keeping comfort while sporting a huge screen, the Galaxy S8's tall screen is also better for using apps than conventional screens.
That means you can see more of an app's content on the screen at one time, which also makes it easier to multitask, like watching a video while typing a message.
It's the same reason why coders like to flip their monitors around vertically to portrait mode.
The Galaxy S8's screen is also wider when you hold it in landscape mode for watching videos, but not all videos are filmed in the 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
I should note that Samsung isn't the only smartphone maker that's made a phone with such a tall screen. LG's recently-announced G6 has a similar 18:9 screen with similar benefits.
