Welcome to the massive Samsung Galaxy S8 Review. This might be the longest video I've ever uploaded. Will you be buying the Galaxy S8?
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is likely the current Android champ but no smartphone is perfect... In this review I aim to show you the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S8. The goal with this review is to give you as much information as possible.
This review should apply to both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus as I'm referencing both throughout. The Only difference between the S8 and S8 Plus is screen size and battery size.
Thanks for watching my Samsung Galaxy S8 review!

*Hi, I have a problem with the Akg earbuds that are included I want to use them on my Ps4 controller it works it's fine but the microphone won't work I hear sounds and my friends in the party but they don't here me because the mic don't work can someone help me out? Sorry. I'm from Germany*
The finger print sensor isn't so bad if you have larger hands. I have decent sized hands, and I have no issues unlocking my s8+ what so ever. I just switched from am iPhone 7 plus, and I have no issues with it, and this is my second day using it.
But I still understand where it affects others.
he hadn't gone very deep in the menus when he complains about not being able to swipe the Notification menu there is a tweak in menu. to let you slide your thumb down or up from mid screen..The notification menu comes down or app menu slides up . No reaching up to the top of the phone with your thumb or all the way from the bottom sliding up durrr
Iv been using this s8+ coming up to a year now I'm telling you now it's the best Samsung iv ever used and Iv had a lot of them and comparing it to a nice looking Apple but isn't that good is a blatant dig!
Bixby, ugh, can't have her nagging me, so needy, let me change the voice, quit being so pushy, kinda like an ex but instead of running into her at the grocery store instead it's when you accidentally push a button right next to the volume. Ya I turned that sht off but once in a while that weird ass voice starts demanding my attention.
Hey guys hope you could help. Do anyone experience lag after a repair from the service center? I got my phone camera fixed since there was a manufacturer's issue, but after receiving the unit back, I feel like the phone became laggy and some apps crash frequently (ex facebook). Did they do something? Honestly, I don't trust the service center in our locality, that's why I don't like to get my phone repaired with them. But since, the camera defect was still covered by the warranty, I gave it a try. Now, after the repair, I just feel that they did something that makes my phone lag. :( Someone, help? Thanks. Btw, got an s8 here.
samsung drives me nuts. Currently the best android on boost mobile is the s8 for $600 😧. So the s8 costs WAY to much so its out. I hate edge display so the s7 edge is out. So that leaves me with the s7 but its got a little screen. FML. Guess I will have to wait for a s9 to come out so i can afford a s8.. .. ..
My hands are large enough to reach the top of the phone with no problem. I also can't find any difficulty with touching the fingerprint sensor. I know many people are complaining, but I've never had a problem with it. I think the Samsung Galaxy S8 is an amazing phone, but I've got a problem: the Bixby Button. I really wish it can be reprogrammed to some other application or tool. This would make it so much more helpful.
I, too, have no problem touching the fingerprint sensor. I don't understand what the fuss is about because I find it perfect. To be honest, if it is where everyone wants it to be (under the camera) I wouldn't like it as much. Idk if you know but the bixby button can be turned off, but I also wish it could be remapped to something different. Maybe in the future.
Well first of all thank you for this review cause u made my decision clear enough, here’s a big headache from apple...
I’ve been an iPhone user since decades and currently i have an iPhone 6, and I’m on of those people who started to face “ Your storage is full “ and this really piss me off cause i don’t have other choices except paying apple 3$ every month to get extra space on my phone which’s frustrating me. + I’m a person who uses two sim cards which’s mean i have to get another device with the iPhone to be satisfied, well not really cause i have to carry both devices. So S8 is going to be my phone and Samsung is the real deal 👍
I don't know why apple and samsung are making the really big screens because I like having the sides and the home button that's not on the screen. I'm also really disappointed that the phones are getting bigger with the bigger screens. Apple and samsung please keep the original designs.
Very nice review. Was almost going to buy the shiny apple cause of the display. Heck i even like the design better than iPhone X and this ugly bump. But the bixby completely steered me away. Never in my life a button for bloatware.
What are your thoughts on Nokia?
Samsung needs to bring back the IR Blaster. I used to control my TV with my Galaxy S6. Then when I upgraded to the Galaxy S8+ I found out the IR Blaster was taken out of the S7 and S8 versions. Which sucks major ass. My phone is by me at all times (and I'm sure this is the case for everybody else who has a cell phone) so having the IR Blaster to control my TV(s) is a major convenience.
