How Big Is the Galaxy S8's Screen, Really?

I'm not sure about the new tall and narrow trend , I had look at a G6 in store comparing it to my G5 which I class as a medium sized phone and the G6 was even narrower , I might add , the G5 is the first and last smallish phone I will have , phablets are just easier to use for me.
As an old fart with big fingers and ageing eyes , larger screens are preferable , so I'm not entirely sure any of these trendy new models will fit the bill.
I will look at the S8 plus , I'm not confident though.
I do like the rest of what both LG and Samsung have done on their new models with camera's and water resistance.

Why go with the funky aspect ratio? Just put the tiny bezels on a 16:9 screen and be done. That's where the magic is coming from, not the stupid aspect ratio.
