Samsung Galaxy S8+
Samsung’s Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 all have an Infinity Display which takes up more than 80% of the front of the device.
The S8+ comes in at 6.2 inches.
This, combined with the fact that the display is Quad HD+ with a 529ppi resolution means that you’ll be getting super sharp images on your display. The S8 and S8+ also come with Samsung’s “Video Enhancer” which punch up the video colours and make them more vivid.
Combine all of that with the Infinity Display and you’ll wonder how you watched video on any other smartphone before.

Huawei’s Mate series packs in big screens and impressive batteries – in all of the Mate devices.

The display might not be a Quad HD or 2K display but Full HD will still give you great colour and image reproduction.
