Final Verdict: While the Samsung Galaxy A8+ is little more than a slightly bigger Samsung Galaxy A8 it is still a worthy upgrade. With its larger screen it makes it much better for use in a normal VR headset, but when used in a Gear VR you really won’t notice the extra screen. Even the resolution is the same! But to have that extra size in your hand, to be able to see the text and visuals clearer is what makes the Samsung Galaxy A8+ a worthy phone about its slightly smaller brother.
