If you read certain tech sites, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the only smartphones worth owning are top-of-the-range flagship models (it's all they ever talk about.) In reality, very few people need a smartphone that costs $1200 - or even half that price.

The official specification sheet for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ has been leaked online - and it's going to be a monster. According to the reports, the next flagship from Samsung will boast a 6.2-inch screen. To put that in perspective, the monolithic Samsung Galaxy Note7's display was 5.7 inches.
