Samsung Galaxy S8+ unboxing: hello, gorgeous!


The Samsung Galaxy S8+ unit used for this article was kindly provided by Samsung Romania.

Frankly, I'm not a fan of Mondays. Getting up early in the morning to go to work after the weekend just isn't what I'd call fun. Which begs the question: why did I arrive at the office before anyone else this morning? Well, because a Samsung Galaxy S8+ was waiting for me in the mailbox – packed in a pretty white Samsung-branded gift bag. 

Since the team and I haven't spent enough time with the Galaxy S8+, we cannot deliver a full, in-depth review. These take considerable amount of testing and hands-on time to produce. However, we're perfectly ready to give you a quick Galaxy S8+ unboxing video, where we take a first look at a retail Galaxy S8 and its accessories. 

For your reference, the box contains:

  • A Samsung Galaxy S8+ (obviously)
  • Stereo earphones tuned by AKG
  • Wall charger, Adaptive Fast Charging supported
  • USB Type-C charging cable
  • USB Type-C to Micro USB adapter
  • USB Type-C to full-size USB adapter
  • SIM card ejector
  • Quick start guide, warranty card, other papers

In case you're wondering, the aforementioned USB adapters are used to allow Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners to transfer data from their old phone over to their new one. And the AKG earphones – they do sound pretty good, as one would expect. We'll be giving them a final verdict in our upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ reviews. 

Below follow more of our posts featuring the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, in case you've missed them.
