Matthew Moniz do u have snapdragon or exynos varient s8
Steve T (7 months ago)
atif ali khan I agree 👍 😎
atif ali khan (7 months ago)
Steve T bro now i'm viewing this on my s8 😉..lovely phone
Steve T (7 months ago)
atif ali khan I would personally go for the S8 as it makes the iPhone 7 seem dated with it's thick bezzles and 1134 X 750 resolution. Or you could wait for the iPhone 8.
wolf hunter (1 month ago)
Hey Matthew do u have the exynos or snapdragon varient of the S8
wolf hunter (1 month ago)
Matthew Moniz I just wanted to ask u one more thing do u use an sd card on ur s8 or not

It's as smooth as stock Android specially since Samsung let's you put apps to sleep out of the box ..your S8 should put apps to sleep automatically but you can choose apps to be on the always sleeping list in the " device maintenance" > " Battery" section

heretic124 (6 months ago)
So you made a commercial for S8 and then you're gonna review it. Sure it'll be unbiased...
Matthew Moniz (6 months ago)
+heretic124 that has to do with Telus the carrier here in Canada. Nothing to do with my review. I wanted to show some of the footage we took since it was a lot of fun and pretty cool
Hilal Shakarchi (7 months ago)
I have the galaxy s8 on the telus network and the battery drain is 4-5% per hour when screen is off and I'm not using the phone. It's fresh from factory reset with nothing syncing. When I put the phone on hspa it drains 0.4% per hour. My s7 Edge drains 1% per hour in same situation. Maybe its the new Snapdragon modem and 4X4 Mimo the issue....I created a thread about it at in the Telus forum : https://forum.telus.com/t5/Mobility-Devices/Galaxy-s8-LTE-battery-drain/m-p/75185#M9188

Dr.Romel Dental Surgeon (8 months ago)
which one should i buy s8 or s8 plus? I use s7 edge with UAG bumper case and i am comfortable with that. if i go for bigger screen s8 plus will it be difficult to manage in one handed ?
giogio1905 (8 months ago)
please tell me where can i find the wallpaper
Satnam Matharu (8 months ago)
Been an iPhone user since iPhone 4, and now moved to the so plus. Love the new experience
Nitish Reddy Katapally (8 months ago)
The battery life you have mentioned in the S8 is with AOD, FHD, Auto brightness on or off? I'm looking to buy one but afraid of the battery life. Is there a way to improve?
Taivan Reza Dipto (8 months ago)
I love his reviews..... maaaaan 😊
I just got my S8 yesterday, and I left the protective plastic on my phone to help protect it from scratches. So far I am loving this phone. :)
JJ L (8 months ago)
What is the lag like? I heard this is an issue with many Samsung S8 phones over time
bizmonkey007 (8 months ago)
I'm really interested in trying this beauty, but the pull of the iPhone is strong. Losing iMessage is a real concern (at least in the States), but I'm also concerned about software updates. Apple is just so good at supporting their devices, and it really seems like Samsung forgets about their flagships after a year (maybe that's changed?). I'm curious what owners of the S8 say, especially if they're coming from an iPhone.
Mahmodul Hasan (8 months ago)
please make an in depth review on Mi 6. please.
dantes peek (8 months ago)
I think part of the reason why the FS scanner was placed there is for the design to make things to look in line and clean. You really think samsung didn't think of it? I mean every other phone that has the back FS scanner placed it below the camera. Its too common, Samsung went for it and made it in line with the camera and flashlight which does look cool. I have an S8, I have no problems with the FS scanner placing. My advise? don't get the S8, because I wanna have the bragging rights alone while you sit there and wondering with probably the G6 or OP5 😂 😂 😂

Ch'ng Sean Eu (10 months ago)
looked into c9 pro but the camera doesn't have ois so choose a9 pro. although my comment doesn't related with s8 (sorry guys) but I do like the next version of s or note series instead of Samsung will improve the finger print sensor later.
Ch'ng Sean Eu (10 months ago)
s8 plus + a9 pro = battery life super.
Uncrowned (10 months ago)
Everyone says they like stock android and how smooth it feels, while its true, I loved the pixel switching from s7, going from pixel to S8 is so much better. Stock android lacks many integrated features that third party launchers or apps dont provide as well. Its like buying a basic toyota and buying leather wraps and putting a heated ballon under ur seat....doesnt work

I bought a skin from dbrand and it made it easier to find the fingerprint scanner quickly...skin looks beautiful btw
George Zammit (10 months ago)
Have an S8 + Duos and can say that battery lasts 48 hrs, wifi usage 10 hrs. Only drawback is the finger print sensor. But 100% satisfied with this gorgeous pal.

Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
haha thanks!
Lazar Maxim (10 months ago)
Tho i have to say i do not agree with your oppinion on the placement of the fingerprint sensor. THAT IS THE NATURAL POSITION OF THE FINGER and samsung did a great job placing it there. If the sensor would have been under the camera , you would have to strugle moving your finger to the left in order to use it .
Rafa Mohamad (10 months ago)
Nice vid, watching this on my gorgeous S8+
Kieran Gannon (10 months ago)
the only thing I hate about the s8 is the dedicated Bixby button.

I have a s7edge right now but is the s8 worth the upgrade or should I wait for the note8

man is your s8 original because it's written on it manufactured in China so is it fake or original please reply me
waleed wael (10 months ago)
Matthew Moniz . but it's written on it manufactured in China. so . . I have the A5 2017 and it's written on it manufactured in China too but I bought it from UAE .so is it original too
Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
of course it's original = ) It's straight from Samsung Canada.

the exynos Versions are better when it comes to Lag because of samsungs optimisations ... had the S7 Edge for 1 year now and have had very few lag issues even when multitasking with games and Videos
Eric Enright (10 months ago)
I agree and I dislike the edge display as well
HipsterTRAsh (10 months ago)

Answer with honesty: would you choose this or the S8? Or which phone are you using?
Segun The PikachuFan (10 months ago)
Matthew Moniz Would you choose the LG G6 or the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Moto Z2 Play?
Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
This or the s8? This video is the s8.. But right now I'm using the Moto Z2 Play and LG G6
FFDP Fan (10 months ago)
Mine is by far the S8 Plus. Love the big bright beautiful display. Love the way it looks and feels in my hand. I notice a big difference in performance from the S8 Plus compared to my S7 Edge. Lately my S7 Edge has been Laggy, mostly when I'm updating only a couple apps and watching YouTube, it slows down. Also just found out from other Youtuber I watch. they found out that consumer reports show that the S8 Plus is the best phone this year, then the S8 followed by the S7/S7 edge. All Samsung devices. No iPhones and no mentions of the LG G6. lol
Rich Brown (10 months ago)
thumbs up if, like me, you think the problem with the fingerprint sensor is overhyped and you personally never smudge your camera accidentally.

Dustin Jennings (10 months ago)
you say the battery is bad but most people don't sit on their phone all day like you do. even on heavy days at work with calling a lot of clients as well as surfing the net and GPS use I get all day easily. I dolnt know if you watch a lot of porn but videos will drain any phone before the end of the day.
Dustin Jennings (10 months ago)
Matthew Moniz That 4k porn will kill the phone fast 🤣
Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
That's how I do my battery tests. I run pornhub until the battery dies

Still complaining about the finger print sensor, wow. Also the battery life is amazing, stop watching so much porn.
Mike Camello (10 months ago)
Matthew Moniz kudos on your reply lol, squashed my remark while staying calm, well played. BUT, the finger print sensor is annoying on the back, never touch the camera though and the battery seems to be the best to me. To each his own.
Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
Still? That's the first time I complained about it = ) If the battery life can't support my porn habits, then the battery life isn't good at all
Alex Micu (10 months ago)

Bullshit on the battery. I get 6-7 hours SOT on my regular S8, with about 15 hours of life. That's WITH AOD on. This thing is insane!
Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
+Seth Knows s8 plus battery is awesome!
Seth Knows (10 months ago)
Matthew Moniz I got the S8+ a few days ago, the battery life is excellent so far. I actually haven't needed a charger since yesterday evening. Still at 60%
sitbackrelaxxx (10 months ago)
Guitarskooter My battery on my s8 + is great. I use my phone pretty heavy and I will go from 100% from 6 a.m. to about 30% when I get home which is usually around 6 or 7 p.m.
Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
+Guitarskooter lucky ! Most people I speak to have poor battery life with it. Glad you got lucky! Thanks for watching

Matthew Moniz (10 months ago)
+Ben Hill yes that's an ad Telus is running on social media that I got to be part of. I didn't have to include it in the video but I thought it was cool! Plus it's an opportunity for people to see some of the stuff I do outside of YouTube

Eliad Buchnik (10 months ago)
Watching it on my new galaxy s8+ XD. Btw even though the position of the finger print scanner is not ideal, you get used to it and personally have no problems to reach the exact location. maybe because of the size/shape if my hands.
Said Chammas (10 months ago)
how will i know if i won?
Zirovich Petroski (10 months ago)
when i got my s8 it didn't have all those bloatware nor duplicate applications. so i got to choose what i wanted to install. i guess it differs with the phone subscripition. i am in the philippines by the way. and can i still join the contest? i want an s8+. hehehe! by the way, i am a new subscriber and i love your videos! just what i needed. been looking for videos to encourage me to keep my s8. i have been beating my self up for getting s8 than s8+. i could have waited for a week to get the plus but instead i grabbed the s8 when i needed a larger phone for it's battery life and for a better video and game viewing. whew. but having seen your video made me feel at ease. however, if i get to win an s8 plus or s8 from u, i could give it as a gift to my special someone as a birthday present courtesy of you. hehehe! i'll take care of the shipping!!!! lol
