Guys believe me after oreo stable update this phone is just beast...i have compared this with s9 and they both are 85% same in all specs...
Mr.Potato (4 days ago)
How much price drop will come over year? Plz tell thanks
TenderGuitar (4 days ago)
Great video Nick, just earned a sub. Think I'll be waiting for the S10 and hopefully 95%+ stb. S9 is to much of a minimalist upgrade and content with my S8 and you reviewed it.

My phone provider, GiffGaff in the UK, had a great deal on the S8+ so I jumped up from my S7. I genuinely didn't see the benefit of the new phone and I confess that the movement of the fingerprint scanner to the back of the phone just irritated me to the point I returned the phone and went back to the S7. Iris scanning and facial recognition are just too hit or miss to be reliable for me.

Nick I need a full comparison of x and 8plus... I'm confused which to buy... Which gives btry back up
Vishnu Jana (6 days ago)
+Nick Ackerman tq u bro
Nick Ackerman (6 days ago)
Made that video on the channel type it In YouTube search followed by Nick it will pop up for you
I ordered one just yesterday! My only concern is, since the phone is a year old, will I receive a unit with a slightly diminshed battery lifespan? It HAS been a year after all, or does the battery lifespan remain intact until it gets actually used?
Nick Ackerman (6 days ago)
No it won't if you ordered it new it will have no diminished battery! Also this phone is getting Android Oreo so it's a great purchase!
Axel HZ (7 days ago)
Yet Tmobile has the roll out Oreo to galaxy s8 for me in the US -.-
Chester Foster (7 days ago)
I vote no. Go big or go home S9 all the way. Unless your on a budget... If so then S8 all the way
Fire (5 days ago)
S8 is far from being on a budget that's like when people call the op5t a budget phone 500-600 hundred is borderline flagship
Nick Ackerman (6 days ago)
Well S8 is not really a budget phone just yet but I understand where your coming from why not pay a little more for the best features

DEAR NICK which is best camera quality best between Samsung galaxy S8 vs iphon 7 plus plz reply
Fire (5 days ago)
Sapana Shah they're both good I'd have to say iPhone 7 does some things better but overall I'd rate the Galaxy s8 a tiny tiny bit better
David Hammer (7 days ago)
Samsung... what da hell are you doing with your front facing cam on all your devices??? Softness. Not even better than the one on the iP6!!! Thx Nick... you're super pro and objective ! Regards from France 🇫🇷 Man 😉

It's definitely noticeable if your coming from iOS or stock Android

Could you please make video on same topic for S8 Plus!!!
Nick Ackerman (7 days ago)
Just made a similar S8 plus video the other day
Leroy Holiday (7 days ago)
I don't want the s9 right now I want the s8 is such a sexy phone
Joao M. Alvarez (7 days ago)
I got the S8+ during the $300 off Black Friday sale at Best Buy. When you include $133 for my trade in, I ended up paying $450. Getting the outgoing model is more economical. Save your money!
L Tan (7 days ago)
I used the s8 for 3months, honestly its camera is deal breaker but the battery was awful
meena chowdhury (7 days ago)
Yes you should buy
Blert Shabani (7 days ago)

Ukarau F. Kakepare (8 days ago)
I brought an S8 plus last week, it's at least $400 cheaper than the S9 in NZ. I've also updated to Oreo and loving it, especially the battery life having come from a Note 5.

Ukarau F. Kakepare what is oreo??
Ukarau F. Kakepare (5 days ago)
I'm not sure about screen on time but battery life is pretty good, haven't noticed any major battery drain and it last me throughout the day with 50 to 60 percent left.
iHunterGTX (6 days ago)
How many Screen time do you get in Oreo? Im planning buying one in some weeks...

I have a S4 ,planning on upgrading to S8 next week!
Filip Kotula (8 days ago)
My mom just bought it and she was never happier with a phone. I've played with it and it's pretzy awesome phone even after the Oreo update
Robert Barnes (8 days ago)
Great video. I have the s8 plus and really enjoy it. I have no intention of upgrading to the s9 plus. Will wait and see what Samsung do next year with the anniversary phone.
Caleb Korthals (8 days ago)
Good phone. People hate on the fingerprint sensor, but I got used to it. Battery life is meh. My main problem is the bad speaker, but you do get those AKG headphones.
ِ._ِ. (7 days ago)
Caleb Korthals I'm not sure
Caleb Korthals (7 days ago)
Well I turn my phone off, so I don't k ow about standby. How much would that cost?
ِ._ِ. (7 days ago)
Bad battery life? Just replace the battery. I never had a problem with the battery, but if I did I'd just replace it.
Mohammed Ahmed (8 days ago)
Yo nick should i upgrade to the s8 or note 8 or iPhone x used or s9 on contract currently on the lg g6 the waterproofing is gone coz the back is lifting
Mohammed Ahmed (8 days ago)
Here in South Africa the note 8 is $50 then the S9😂💔
Gøran Greggor (8 days ago)
Still have it, still amazing!! The battery has improved, just like you said, if I keep the screen on time to 4-5 hours, it altogether lasts over 24hrs on just one charge easy. Otherwise, I've managed to push it up to 8 and a half hours of screen on time and it still lasted some 14 hours, maybe slightly longer. And it actually looks better to me than the S9, which I've held in hand. In fact in Denmark we had sales actions in many Samsung stores where if you exchanged your S8 in good condition and ordered the S9 (you could play with it and try it out in the store) within a period which lasted for two weeks, you could get a discount for up to $400. Meaning, considering my S8 is only 6 months old and in mint condition, I could've upgraded to the S9 for just $700. Here it costs approx. 1100 dollars. Yet I skipped it, just wasn't worth it imo. Anyhow, for anyone currently buying a new phone and considering this one, rather than the S9, I couldn't recommend it more! Especially if you intend of having it for a year instead of two. Go for it!

s8 is a beast esp since the oreo update

If You Dont Have The Money For the s9 Get The s8 plus its AMAZING You

Whenever a new phone comes out people love to act as if the previous model is a phone from 1999.

My S8 has been fantastic and it is still continuing to perform really well .
Kalin Kuber Naidoo (8 days ago)
Kinda happy to know that my S8 will be relevant in 2018 😥😁
Getsuga Tenshou (8 days ago)
I have an S7 Edge, and sure the S8 and the S9 are the most beautiful and well-designed phones of all time, but my S7 Edge is still not outdated. In fact if you don't like the fullscreen design then the S7 Edge is a go since it's one of the last smartphones ever to not have a near-100% screen-to-body ratio and one of the only ones that you can buy now, because 2016 phones are slowly going off the shelves, unless you want to buy an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus.. but that design is getting thrown away as well in favor of fullscreen iPhones.
Fire (5 days ago)
Getsuga Tenshou I wouldn't upgrade from the S7 to s8 but S7 to s9 sure if it shows age if not keep your phone until it becomes bad that's what everyone should do lower waste save money
Stefan Daniele (8 days ago)
I'd rather get an iPad Pro for that much money.

Jérôme Proulx (8 days ago)
Imo the reason why its not quad hd out of the box it to justify the higher performance modes and therefore have a bigger contrast with the standard mode.
Sharky165 (8 days ago)
Jérôme Proulx Actually Samsung's on record as saying that the main reason they default resolution to 1080p is to provide better battery life out of the box.

Can I have a ❤️
Sachi (8 days ago)
Nope, u can buy a 256GB s9 instead.... 1. variable aperture. 2. HEVC 3. Dual speakers. 4. Usable finger print sensor. 5. 4k @60 fps, 1080p@240fps, 720p@960fps. 6. 256GB option.
Sachi (8 days ago)
Sharky165 It's a High Efficiency Video Codec, S9 can record and play in that format. The size of video files recorded will be reduced by 50% with that codec... Very big deal for smartphone vloggers...
Sharky165 (8 days ago)
Sachi What exactly is HEVC ??

He is a liar I have this phone and it has never lagged and I'm a high phone user and Android 8.0 makes it fast af

Kanwar Anand (8 days ago)
You made me check for th software update and I found Oreo. It’s downloading on my s8 plus. Should I do it though
ِ._ِ. (7 days ago)
Updating to a new version can make your battery worse on any OS, and cause bugs too. I never had that problem though
ِ._ِ. (7 days ago)
Kanwar Anand bad battery? Just replace it. I never had that problem but if my phone was dying fast I'd just replace the battery. Good as new 👍
Kanwar Anand (7 days ago)
ِ._ِ. You are taking this too personally. I had an issue in the past so I'm concerned goddamit. It's my money my phone bozo. I don't see why you're being suggestive of how I didn't know what I was doing.
ِ._ِ. (7 days ago)
Kanwar Anand you made it sound like a Android problem, but it's really just your problem
ِ._ِ. (7 days ago)
Kanwar Anand well that's your problem because it never happened to my phones... Why don't you just replace the battery instead of complaining about it?
tpar69 (8 days ago)
I have a Samsung galaxy s8 and I love it also no lag after 5 months and great camera and screen battery life is ok and on Android 8.0 kills most phones.

Love ❤️ you nick keep it up
Yes!You can go for Galaxy S8 in March 2018. Performances was good but not the overall perfect. But personally for me I would prefer dual camera smartphones with better RAM,ROM,Battery and well optimised. Don’t get me wrong S8 was good but I would like to prefer One Plus and Huawei series. Google Pixel series staring from Pixel 2 is better option if budgets doesn’t matter. :)
