Samsung Galaxy S8+ vs Galaxy Note 5: design and build quality
The Galaxy S8+ recalls the symmetrical bodies, thin frames and curves of the Note 5 and Note 7, but takes a big leap forward in terms of design. The Note 5 is flat on top with rounded edges only on the rear, which makes it ergonomic, but not as strikingly modern as the S8+ with its bezel-less display and curved glass on the front and back. The build quality of the Note 5 is also nowhere near as seamless as the new S series flagship, as it lacks any waterproofing. Unlike the Note 5, the S8+ has IP68 certification for resistance to water and dust, a USB Type-C port, and an iris scanner.

The home button has been removed from the S8+ in favor of virtual buttons, and the fingerprint scanner has moved to the back of the device next to the camera. The Note 5 comes with an S Pen stylus that fits into a slot on the bottom of the device, while the S8+ lacks a stylus entirely.

The Samsung Galaxy S8+ is a bit bulkier and heavier than the Note 5, but it has a considerably larger screen. The S series flagship’s 6.2-inch display compared to the Note 5’s 5.7-inch one makes a big difference when trying to be productive. The dimensions of the Note 5 are 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm, and the dimensions of the S8+ are 159.5 x 73.4
