The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ (Plus) represent the most advanced Android smartphones on the market. The Galaxy S8 is not without it's quirks... It's got an unusual aspect ratio, lower than maximum screen resolution out of the box and no real enhancement to battery life (from the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge). That said the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are some of the more comfortable phones I've held. The change in aspect ratio give you a slender phone which still packs an enormous screen. The Galaxy S8 Plus has a 6.2-inch display and feels smaller in the hand than most 5.5-inch phones (including the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL). The Samsung Galaxy S8 is likely the "screen champ" right now as well, with an amazing AMOLED panel and resolution up to 2,960 x 1,440 pixels. You will not be disappointed with the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus. Still, the world of Android smartphones has advanced tremendously (especially in the $400 retail range) and I think many will find better value elsewhere. So what do you think, is the Samsung Galaxy S8 worth it's premium price tag?

Unbox Therapy i was just got a S8 and was just wondering if you had/have the problem where the passwords and biometrics are sometimes disabled, letting people into your phone. I know you probably won't see this but maybe someone else can tell me how to fix this. Thank you :)
A few questions from a current Apple user (who's never used any other platform) looking to switch:
1. I hate how in my music app if I close out the app it doesn't remember where I left off in a song or on a playlist. On the S8, if I close out the app, will the banner still be at the bottom, and will it remember what song I was playing?
2. I record music on my voice recorder app currently, and used to be able to add those songs into my music library. Now that I have Apple Music, it decides what music I can put in my library and what I don't if I have the iCloud Music option on. If I used a voice recorder app, could I add that in as a music file and listen to it like any other song?
3. Are there any apps that would allow you to add music that you have purchased in the past (my normal library), and stream music to download, all in the same app? That was my draw to using Apple Music before, as opposed to Spotify. I wanted to be able to listen to all of my music in the same app instead of switching back and forth from my library (purchased music) and streaming music. Does the Samsung Music app, or any other, allow you to do both?
Thank you very much for any feedback. God Bless and have great day!
TL; DW: Is it worth it? "Does it suck? No, not at all. *In a mafia-esque tone* It's a beautiful thing; You'll be happy if you buy it."
Quick pros and cons:
P: Nice Large, Oled, screen with small bezels
C: Bezeled videos due to awkward screen ratio
C: Sketchy screen resolution setup
P: clean home screen setup
C: single speaker grill
P: Headphone jack
C: fingerprint scanner is right beside camera
P: 8-megapixel front facing camera
C: iris scanner for unlocking is not optimal
P: facial recognition is speedy and efficient
Go ahead and leave Unbox Therapy a like. The video was great and he covered a ton of info. I just hate meandering and like things short and to the point, and I know someone else out there is the same way. So, this is for you!
Hi Im looking for some parts of S8plus. My phone dies due to the water present even the phine should be water resistant..
Im looking for PBA main,sensor,sub,earjack,front camera and front case. Give me a message if you have.
Guys when I tap the screen on my s8 it makes different noises in different places. Some areas sound hollow and my tap sounds obvious. But in other areas it sounds solid and cannot hear my tap. Is this normal?
Stop inserting the word 'On' as a connecter. 'Hating this decision' does not become 'hating on this decision'. God, where did you people go to school? The civility and culture of any human being shows itself the moment one speaks. Consider that and improve your culture and civility.
They need to give up on this terrible aspect ratio. Most people watch a LOT of videos and pics on their phones and this new screen ratio is HORRIBLE for those. It gives you a couple extra lines of text on web pages, but is that worth it? HELL no.
xPurple BeStDrEm It depends on if you want a bigger devise or a smaller devise... can't go wrong with either of them they're both beautiful phones. I have the S8+ in Arctic Silver and absolutely love it
