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?

seriously I'm iphone user but let me tell you 1 second ?? why apple just to show off ? Samsung is amazing and superb quality. i love apple as well but i can't pay for the security that lot of money. these two companies are giant so no one can beat them.
It comes at default setting for saving battery power. If you want to watch a video all the way up its then go ahead. But during the most of the day (when your not watching videos) just set back to the halfway mark to save battery power. It still has an awesome video set at halfway setting ... etc.
My S8 stopped working all of a sudden just after 8 months, that too with very minimal usage. I have never installed or played any games in it, the only Apps I used most are WhatsApp, Instagram, Gmail, Chrome Browser and Google Maps. It didn't have any physical damage. I have immersed it in water only once and that too for under a minute. The only issue I had been facing was, the ear speaker was very low for the last few weeks, it was too low that I had to use headphone or put on speaker.
On Mar 14, 2018, while I was just browsing Instagram, the App all of a sudden stopped working and automatically got closed.
And when I tried to open it again after a couple of minutes, the phone got switched off and that was it, it never switched back on after it. It used to happen earlier, the phone used to get hanged and would restart automatically, but this time it never restarted back. I tried all the options, tried to connect it to a charger, there was no sign of charging, the red led light was not on. Then I tried to hold the volume down and power button together for more than 30 secs, still, it was not turning on.
Thank God this happened during the warranty period, so Samsung agreed to get it fixed after I ship it to them. My Samsung S3 which I bought in 2012 still works good and I'm using it now until I get back my S8. The only issue is the battery is draining very fast, I even tried to get a replacement battery, but it was of no help either. The phone still runs on Android Kitkat, that might be the cause of the battery draining. Now I'll be having a second thought to go again for a Samsung phone going forward. :-(
Heres my question, should I use a screen protector and or case? I've got a really low profile otterbox and so far I haven't used it but at the same time I avoid using my phone too much when I'm away from carpet.
Samsung s8 is waaay better than Iphone X...Here is why:
Samsung s8 600$
Iphone X 1200$ double the price bruh;
Better camera and many people confirm it;
Battery lasts longer;
Edges are actually round unlike Iphone X;
And so much more....
I just got this phone. It's beautiful. Not as smooth or powerful as the iphone 8, but customization is awesome. Camera is better on iphone IMO. But I like the way I can use the S8 cameras in dual mode recording. Why won't iphone do that too? Of course, I love the headphone jack too. I use it for the mic. I am lucky that I can carry both Iphone and Android phones. I also have an apple watch and a samsung watch on either wrist. Both have a lot to offer. Why people have to hate on either one is beyond me. I guess they just like to hate. It's fun to have two lovers. I can appreciate the good in both of them.
Hey Lewis, I just recently got the S8 plus. I agree with you on the video orientation part, but the edge panel, iris sensor, and finger print scanner I'd have to disagree with you. I very much love the edge panel, I find it very useful. The iris scanner I find very easy to use and works quite quickly. And the finger print scanner, all though I prefer the scanner orientation of my old LG K20 V, I am very comfortable with the location of the on on the S8 plus.
Stay away from the 8s I have my 7 for a year. Just got a 8s two weeks ago already a scratch on the screen. My 7 still looks new they made the 8s easy to damage. For maintenance repair charges the Sprint sale lady told me.
Never ever trust reviews, I switched from iPhone to Samsung and I'm so disappointed with Samsung s8. Its drives me crazy, calls cut out mid conversation, the default settings can't be changed and continuously asks if I want to set messenger or phone as default, every single time I get a message between apps. Its such a mess of information, apps and a big mess on the screen, I really hate it so much and am gutted I'm stuck with this phone, the phone actually stresses you out using it and I've never experienced that before, maybe it's a good thing, in the future I think I'll just buy one of those cheap Chinese phones that have had good reviews. Honestly people don't waste your money if you're wondering about buying one.
Samsung Galaxy 8 and Galaxy notes8 are better than I though people are buying than iPhone 8or 10 people switching Samsung Galaxy 2 reasons reliability is the cost of the phones cheaper over iPhone and Samsung Better battery life than iPhone 8or 10
