Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love S8!I love this phone!! Just when you wonder how Samsung could possibly upgrade the S7, then comes along the S8!! The only problem I have is Bixby. But maybe I need to explore it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first and last phone with curved glassIt took me 4 days to scratch the screen on this thing. I traded in a 2 year old S5 with pristine glass. I think the curvature just exposes it and makes it easy to scratch. It's very hard to find a case with a built in screen protector for it, and I hate stick on protectors. The curved glass has no utility; I guess it's supposed to be pretty. If you value form over function, it's your money, I guess. I'd rather have a package that isn't as flimsy as a raw egg. I have no complaints about how it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Samsung To date!Let me start by saying this phone is the best to date! It has a great camera, one of the best screens with vibrant colors and an infinity display that is stunning! The design is phenomenal with one major flaw which is the placement of the fingerprint, which is the only bad thing about it. This phone would be a perfect phone if it had just been placed lower. Other than that everything about this phone is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new generation of galaxy'sRight off the bat, love the DESIGN: (infinity screen) but there is a flaw (that has been fixed though), the fingerprint sensor... it's not the best placement for a sensor (I've gotten used to it). CAMERA: It's a good camera with 12 megapixels and good (at times) low light shooting. Different modes and OIS (Optical image stabilization) good for recording up to 4K (but takes up space). PERFORMANCE: Phone is beyond my view of fast interface is nice, multi-window as well fast at performing multiple heavy usage apps. FEATURES: Bixby don't bother me (wish samsung could use it as a command ((press to turn on flashlight,screen dim,ect...)) but you can shut it off, Fingerprint works as intended, for users of Samsung Health this is loaded with a Heart Rate Sensor (HRS), water-resistant IP-68 (not to be used in the water for too long, could withstand drops or accidentally dunks).Value: It's pretty Reasonable for the price not that expensive.**(Disclaimer I am not endorsed by Samsung)**

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, beautiful photos and fastBought this unlocked phone so was able to keep my number, just had to buy a new micro card from my carrier. My photos and apps were transferred over with the software and adapter that came with the phone. So Cool. So Easy. Love the size and ease of use. Just needed to buy the adapters as this has the new C charger. Now I have one in my wallet that I take with me and a few around the house. I have a solar charger that I keep one with too. Battery lasts a long time. Didn't know how slow and bad my last phone was until I bought this one. I can multitask so many things with this. Bought a hard case and glass cover. Love that you can open apps with your fingerprint instead of typing in username and password all the time. Just depends on the app of course. I hate to carry a purse so love that this fits in my back pocket and then a little wallet and I can wear cute tops and not look all bulky. It is a full screen that is so pretty and crisp and sound. It lets you know that you have a text message if you didn't hear it so you don't have to keep turning on your phone to check. little blue light flashes. Just so many little features that my old phone didn't have I have only had a month and I keep finding more things out about this phone. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phoneThis is easily the best phone ever. The battery life is excellent and Bixby is great and was well worth the wait. My only major complaint is that the earbuds didn't live up to the hype and didn't last 2 months before one side went out. This is an amazing phone despite the price tag and the fingerprint sensor placement isn't that bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updates broke the phone 3 months after purchase.I purchased this phone in September of 2017. It was amazing and everything I wanted. 3 months later they dropped the Oreo update and I was no longer able to control streaming apps over bluetooth. I know bugs happen, but here I am 6 months after they released an update that broke my phone, basically being told that I can send it back and they'll send me another non-working phone in a week or so. Fix your issues Samsung. I love your products, but every time you release an update you make them worse. It's 2018, a flagship cell phone costing almost a grand should be able to do something that the original iPhone was able to do a decade ago.I used to swear by Samsung, but I can no longer recommend Samsung to anyone based on my S8 not working properly for 2/3 of the time I've owned it. I currently own the following Samsung devices, Galaxy S3, S4, S5, S6, S7, S8, Gear, Gear S Nano, Gear 360, Samsung Refrigerator, and a Curved 4k TV, and one of their original plasma TV's. I say this so you know how much I have enjoyed Samsung in the past. If they release an update that breaks something, their expectation is that you'll just go buy a new one - I've given them 6 months to fix what they broke in the Oreo update and they haven't done it... they haven't had any trouble though pushing their new phone. No thanks. Now as items stop working I will make sure to avoid Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to love my phoneI've had my new S8 for a few months now and all of a sudden I am getting a "moisture detected in charging port" message and it's annoying as all get out. Referring to community support there are 12 PAGES of this same complaint. I've tried all the suggestions to no avail. Thank God I have a wireless charger ...but I have to take that with me when we travel and use that in the vehicle and considering so many people have shelled out hundreds and hundreds of dollars and are getting this same message it's very very disappointing. It's obviously a software issue so hopefully Samsung will track it down and create a fix.Other that the above very bothersome 'non-charging via standard usb cable' problem I do like the phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pocket power!This device is nothing short of amazing. It offers all the usual great Samsung features plus some. The accessibility features are very useful. The size is perfect for my one handed use, but has enough heft if I want to use it with two hands in landscape mode. The camera is the best out there, and the pre loaded filters are awesome. I have yet to run out of power before the end of my long 8 pm days. If by some chance one needs to top off before heading back out for a night of fun, there are options. Wireless fast charging or wired; either way, you'll be back up to at least 80% by the time you shower and dress. This phone is a workhorse that fits in the palm of your hand. And the screen is one of, if not THE best out there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressive phone!I have been an iPhone user for over 10 years, let me preface this by saying I’m not very tech oriented person, but I wanted to try this new phone the Samsung S8. I was very impressed with the quality of the screen, the ease-of-use, the quality of pictures it would take, and the edge shortcut apps in favorite people. I wasn’t thrilled with the placement of the volume switch because I kept accidentally turning the volume down or off. Another slight flaw for me was with the curved edge glass it was very easy to hit buttons when I’m talking on the phone with my cheek. All this said and done I enjoyed my time with the Samsung phone and it was really a very hard decision whether to keep the phone or go back to my iPhone. In the end I made the decision to go back to the iPhone only because the familiarity and ease of communicating with the rest of my family. Changing from an iPhone to the Samsung was difficult getting my calls to go through in my text to my family that had iPhones, once we solve that problem communication became a lot easier. Overall I would highly recommend this phone to anyone some of this highly technological and someone like me that’s not a very big techie. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitley worth it!I was really debating whether to buy this phone, get a Pixel or the latest I-phone. However, this phone is AMAZING! The camera is indeed Amazing! The processor runs insanely smooth (I don't have millions of apps). Probably my favorite feature is the "Performance Mode". It definitely helps our for the Task at hand! The video quality is just AMAZING! The speaker in the bottom right of the phone isn't that amazing, but it still gives quality sound! If you do get this phone, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT! Get the 128GB or 256GB! TOTALLY worth having that much space if needed! I don't use BIXBY, but hopefully they make her justice in the future. Thank You Samsung! Hopefully this phone last me at least 3 years til your new phone comes out or I'm able to afford one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great.I used to absolutely love everything about this phone. Works great, fast, reliable. With the last update I want to throw it out the window every freaking time I use it. There are obtrusive ads at every turn, even when you are pausing to think what do I need to do next. If I ever get a new phone, it will be a freaking dumb flip phone. This last update has me infuriated that I spent this much money on a phone over which I have no control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PhoneI love this phone! It's perfect for me in every way. The photos it takes are stunning! The size is perfect. The infinity screen is beautiful. I never use the Bixby function, but it is nice to have. I love that it's water resistant. The battery life is the biggest surprise for me because I don't have to charge my phone twice a day anymore, and when I do charge it, it charges so fast. My only cons are the fingerprint detector is in an awkward spot. I have tiny hands and fingers, and even with my popsocket on my phone, I have to stretch my finger to reach the sensor. The other con is the speaker isn't as loud as I'd like it to be. Other than those 2 things, I am absolutely crazy for this dang phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PhoneThis is another great product by Samsung. The S8 out performs almost all other phones on the market except the S8+ and Note 8. The battery life is great and the screen can not be beat. This is one of the benchmark phones for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All That I Have Wanted... Now Available in Coral Blue!!When the S8 models were released in the States I felt a bit dejected because this market was limited to black, silver, and orchid Grey colors despite knowing that other colors that were popular here were being sold over seas. I had purchased three coral blue beauty in the Note7 and S7 Edge editions and knew that buying the S8+ in any other color would leave me wanting for more, specifically in a shade of blue. There's something about Samsung's shade of blue, when applied to their stellar designed smart phones that's pure magic. At initial release I purchased an orchid grey S8+, and once the coral blue model was announced for the States I made plans to get this amazing phone in the shade I truly wanted, which I did yesterday Sunday, July 23rd. I also ordered Samsung's blue protective case, which arrived a day after I purchased my phone. I haven't been to stop admiring the beauty of this phone, Its definitely one of the few mobile phones thatI can see myself holding on to as a collector's item (I simply adore well designed and functioning, cutting edge tech). Having owned they orchid S8+ meant that I was familiar with all the features packed into the S8 series phones. Even still it's a joy to reintroduce myself to these features that still amaze me. The iris scanner has to be one of my favorite biometric tools for securing my phone. It's a great option to have when you may be unable to scan your finger print, or input a pin number. The multiple ways to unlock the S8 is very impressive, and technologywise goes far beyond any other smart phone on the market today. It's great that Samsung is offering theS8 carrier unlocked, which frees consumers from being tethered to one carrier, something extremely important in the US, where the customer service you get can be quite bad from all 4 to 5 of the major carriers. It's a good feeling to know that you aren't obligated to remain with a company that provides poor service. Additionally, Samsung's unlocked phones are sold free of the extra, unnecessary applications that each carrier adds to phones locked on their network. That performance of the S8 phones is matched only by their cutting edge design. You won't find an Android phone that comes close to the high quality performance, and pioneering design of Samsung's flagship embassy phones. The only suggestion I have for current or future owners of Samsung Galaxy phones is to take care of your phone. They are true investments that maintain a high percentage of their original value/price, for years after your initial purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good camera. No major issues yet.I have only had this phone for about 8 months, so can't tell how it will hold up over time. So far, the battery life is good. I charge with a Samsung wireless charger and I have to be careful when I put it on the charger, there have been times when it didn't charge at all. Most of the time, it does charge and the wireless seems to charge quickly enough. Updates to the software did some things that I felt was a step or two backward. I do not use the 'phone' feature much (I just don't like talking on the phone), but the sound quality is good. There are a few minor issues that I hope Samsung finds a solution for, the two most important (to me) are: 1) Although you can sync your contacts, photos, etc, to the Samsung cloud in case you lose your phone or purchase a new one, you cannot access those items on a desktop or laptop computer. 2) I can't explain this, but you can swipe 'up' a certain way and it opens Samsung Pay, or you can swipe 'up' a little differently and it all apps are visible. With continued use, it just becomes automatic how to swipe to get what you want. The same with swiping 'left'. If you swipe 'left' one way, you open a handy shortcut menu, if you swipe 'left' another way you are able to access other screens. It has something to do with the 'edge' feature. And it's nice for the most part, with continued use you learn to swipe 'up', or 'left' or 'right' from either the middle of the screen or the edge, depending on what you want to access. However, I wish there was more of a distinction between the two because when I get in a hurry, seems like I always tend to swipe incorrectly and I don't get access to what I intended. Details, details, I'm sure Samsung will change all this in the future with 'new and improved' designs and it won't be an issue - - but just a little drawback to this particular model. But for the most part, I think this is a good phone. I haven't dropped it yet, so can't tell you how it holds up to abuse. It is heavy in my purse, and the size is large for my hands, but I enjoy the large screen and can't have a large screen if the phone is tiny. This phone doesn't waste space on the screen which is nice. All buttons are located on the sides or are just areas that you can tap at the bottom and only come up when usable. If you are surfing the web, you get the full use of the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, functional phone but with key flawsI've had my Galaxy S8 for five days, having just upgraded from the Note 4, which I loved. The phone's features, particularly the resolution, security, and ease of use, are remarkable, but I just noticed a small scratch on the screen. The phone is always facing up on my nightstand or is in a special pocket in my purse with no other items. My screen protector is coming in today, but I didn't imagine already getting a scratch. For a phone this high priced, the screen should not be so easily damaged. I have had phones for almost two years with no scratches. Thinking about returning.

And I have so much freaking space it's unbelievable that I haven't even hit 50% on my drive. The battery not as long lasting as the day I got it but will still get me through a full day if I'm not watching TV on it. Great job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New phone bugs and issuesIt has a lot of storage including the external microchip.. not sure why Samsung has changed the charging cable.. yea higher speed of charge but was really nice to have a single cable for various products. One really big issue is that there is no protective glass screens that work well with this phone so gotta be extra careful. The plastic one semi works but the glass ones do not as you lose most of your touch capability. Looks great, ease of use and love being able to reach both sides with one hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back the sensitivity adjustment.I am a BIG fan of samsung. All my phones have been samsung. I love the S8 for the most part but one thing I dislike is the touch sensor on the phone. At least the S7 had adjustment for sensitivity. You make the phones with glass that will break if you look at it cross-eyed and then, so I don't have to buy a new phone every week, I put a tempered glass screen protector on it, now all the touches take extra hard touch. Real handy if you want to skip a song while moving, ok on a motorcycle or in a car... NOT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PhenomenalSimply the best device I've owned.I do wish the battery was replaceable, even if that made it a bit thicker - but other than that, this thing has been amazing.It's fast, the screen is perfect, and it's made the Gear VR experience worthwhile for me for the first time.Excellent all-around! I even just ordered a dex to get even more from it.The High def audio chips and headphone jack are an absolute must-have. I was able to slot in my 200G microSD full of high-def FLACs and play music with no issues (I did have to get a better music app, but that's tiny)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maybe Going Too FarThis is a nice phone, overall. The screen is great, as always with Samsung. It is set up similarly to previous phones, so there is carryover in setting it up. The sound quality is a big improvement over the S4.Design: It just barely fits in my pocket. I liked the S4 better for carrying and gripping. The hot edges are too sensitive. This feature is overkill. In general, there are too many bells and whistles, and too many settings. I'll bet I've spent close to 20 hours on setting it up, and it still isn't the way I want it. The clock is a mess. The S4 was far superior. The slot machine style tumblers are annoying and hard to see.Performance: So far, everything is working except the notification for messages doesn't always work, and the volume slider for the "System" turns itself off without any contact from me. The slider moves down on its own when it feels like it.I've still got a long way to go to master this phone. So far, this phone is overwhelming. It is possible to have too much of a good thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DisappointedI have had my Galaxy since June of 2017, I loved the phone until the latest update they did, I have depended on a feature for my important contacts that I could assign a specific text alert so I would know who it was like my kids! They decided to take this option off of my phone and I am not happy at all, If they do not correct this feature I will NEVER buy another Galaxy, TV or any product from Samsung, which I have many! This may not be important to some people but I have used this feature along with a ringtone for my important contacts for many many years! Please correct this Samsung!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FragilePhone is very fast and attractive. Camera is top notch and overall performance is really good, but design is something greatly overlooked by Samsung. Fingerprint sensor position is awkward, but what I am disappointed the most is the fact, that screen is extremely unprotected and fragile. Phone was wrapped with basic silicone case. My wife accidentally dropped it from barely 2 feet height and screen corner shattered in to peaces. She had her traded-in S5 with metal bezel and it was flying in apartment smashing to the wall few times and several times from 5 feet height and not even a scratch. Well, maybe just tiny one on a bezel. S9 has not changed from that perspective. I will buy A3 or even different manufacturer next time instead of galaxy series. Later one not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome PhoneThis is an awesome phone, this is my second time owning a Samsung Galaxy my previous phone was the galaxy S6. Before that it was an iPhone which I loved till it broke from there I went to the S6 and never looked back, Ive wanted this phone ever since there were rumors about it online. Even after the Note 7 disaster I still had hope and preordered the S8 first chance I got. The design is great, I have no problems with anything, I have not tried out the iris or face recognition yet. The clock on it kinda bugs me as the hours are on top and the minutes are below that and I don't know how to change it, Ive looked everywhere in the settings but it is a minor issue. It either can't be done or Ive missed it someplace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone crippled by a fatal design flawThis could have been a great phone but the location of the fingerprint scanner is terribly awkward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hits every mark but one (or two)The phone is the right size, the right shape, and the fingerprint reader is in a great position. The phone is fast and the battery life is great. The blue unlocked edition looks sharp and the value for the price is more than reasonable. Bixby, when used, provides the right information and understands voice commands well enough that I'd hardly have to repeat myself. Although, there is no native way to remap the built on Bixby button if you don't use that feature often. I cannot say that anything else stands out as lacking or under-performing.This phone is by far my favorite but the lack of the ability to control my system or use a custom ROM takes a lot of the fun out of owning an android device. Although there are methods to obtain root access for this phone, it comes at a cost of performance, battery life, security and stability and I would not recommend it. I would, however, recommend this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone but nothing to jump for joy about.I use my phone for phone calls, texting and searching the internet. Calls are clear and it seems to get better signal than my previous galaxy s6. Texting is the same. I use voice to text and this version seems worse than the s6 but I still need to use it some to make sure. The speed is great but its new so we will see if it stands the test of time. Bixby in my opinion is a complete waste of time. Google already has an assistant and I would prefer my phone not be bogged down by duplicate versions of almost the same thing. The phone doesn't seem durable at all. I have a case and a screen protector on mine. Its almost like they are designed to break. The battery life is ok as it gets me though the day but I don't think it would if I watched videos. I am an android person and samsung s8 is currently the best android device. I wish they would step up their game and really design an amazing phone. Bottom Line. This phone isn't worth an early upgrade but its a great phone when you are ready to upgrade. Phones these days are kinda like new cars. They all look the same, perform the same and one doesn't stand out from the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, even with flawsI bought received this phone as a present a year ago. It was a phone out of a science fiction movie. I love it. Then, problems became an issue. I had burn in my screen and water in the charging port. Which, might I add The phone no contact with water in the 1 year spand. I was also having problems with it glitching out sometimes I had to restart the phone just so it doesn’t happen that often. Nevertheless, Samsung recommended me to a repair shop that did everything under the 1 year warranty. I was extremely happy with what they recommended me because they told me they couldn’t hand my phone back till it was 100% performance level that Samsung wishes all devices to be. My phone is in tip top condition and I would recommend it to anyone buying a phone despite the few problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am enjoying this phone very muchI've had my S8 for three weeks. After the initial awkwardness of transfer of skills from my previous Note to the new interface, I find the controls and features are intuitive and easy to access. I like the shape and size of the unit much more than the Note. The screen image is incredibly sharp. I'd call it "stunning." The thing I appreciate most about the phone is its speed and power. The S8 is FAST. The reason I gave it 4 stars for performance is I find the phone call quality is not as good as I'd like. This could be a carrier or location problem, but I have no way to calibrate that as I'm using the same carrier in the same locations as my previous phone, and call quality is just not good. (It wasn't great on the previous Samsung phone either.) I've actually dropped more calls than I've answered over the past three weeks. I allowed 4 stars for value because I think phones have become priced as luxury items, not as daily use tools. I think the cost of phones is exhorbitant, especially given that almost everyone has one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone - and no problems activating here!I already had a Galaxy S8 for myself and I love it. So I wanted to get another one for my kid. I shopped around, and I could not bring myself to pay what Verizon charges. So I bought one from a local electronics chain, and we could not get it to activate, even though it should have worked. So I returned that one. Then I read a post from someone who said they bought theirs directly from Samsung. I was surprised to see their price was just as good as the best offers for new phones on eBay! And when I saw that I could activate the phone on Verizon directly through Samsung, I was confident that it would activate. And it did - I went through the activation steps right here on samsung.com, and it was really easy, and it worked the first time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not my favoriteI've been waiting to upgrad my S6 but after 4 days, the S8 is by far the most initially frustrating to me. I've always had Samsung Galaxy phones (S3 through S6) & this is my least favorite upgrade. It's got all of the amazing normal features like best quality camera, etc, but I don't like the lack of home button, or the option to have normal vs edge, & while you can change the clock format on the always on display, it won't change on the normal lock screen (and if you're type A maybe a little OCD, that will drive you nuts). My biggest complaint though is the button sensitivity - you can change home button sensitivity but whether I'm typing or scrolling for normal everyday use, I feel like I'm going to break the screen because I have to press so hard & it takes me twice as long to type or even play solitaire because it skipped a letter or something. Also, while I realize most people want the uber slim design, I wish the S8 had width of the S8+ but height of the S8. Overall, awesome phone but my initial excitement of my upgrade is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly fast and wonderfully reliable; one teeny-tiny gripe...Let me start off by saying this phone is AWESOME. It's unbelievably quick and has the performance of a well-tuned car; nothing short of the exceptional quality you'd expect from a top-of-the-line Samsung product. Apps run flawlessly and calls are unbelievably clear, by far the best quality I've ever experienced. Prior to purchasing this phone, all I had owned were cheap prepaid phones from various manufacturers. When I bought my last phone, I promised myself it would only be used until I got the money for a good one. I don't regret my purchase in the slightest. Now, one teeny-tiny concern: as sleek and beautiful this phone looks, the back is really smooth and slick. It's actually hard to hold onto for me. Maybe I have girly hands, but it seems to slip around a bit. A bit of external texturing would eliminate this issue and greatly reduce the frequency of phones slipping from customers' hands. Luckily I got a free Otterbox case with my purchase so it's not an issue, but someone who likes their phone au naturale might have a problem. I suppose with a piece of electronics like the S8, you'd be crazy NOT to have a case.All in all, the Galaxy S8 accomplishes exactly what it strives to be: a high-end performance machine capable of handling the most complex tasks with ease, reliability, and sexiness to boot. I couldn't recommend this phone any more highly, and I foresee myself enjoying mine for quite some time.L.M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BeautifulThis phone is amazing. It's slick, fast and gorgeous. The display is great, even if you use the standard setting instead of enhanced.Bixby: Bixby has a long way to go to replacing already-existing assistants on the market. It's too early in development to really comment on whether this will become a commonly used application.Security: I'm not completely inconvenienced by the fingerprint scanner, but when I can avoid it I much prefer to use the iris scan. It actually works rather well and saves me the hassle of searching for the scanner, and it's more secure.Battery: The battery life is decent, but the power-saving mode is awesome. My phone lasted on single charge, from 3AM until 10PM, mid-power-save mode, and still had plenty of juice left if I'd needed it. I wasn't heavily using it (during that time I took some photos, chatted on messenger, and browsed social media sites) but I've had plenty of phones die on me with little to no use just due to how long I'd gone without a charge. It's also really convenient to turn on and off, right there in your quick action tray.Speakers: The speakers are decent but I'm not thoroughly impressed. I much prefer using my headset or a bluetooth speaker when available. That being said, dual bluetooth support is an exciting new feature I can't wait to try out.Camera: Great quality and tons of new fun and useful features. Definitely a must-have as phones have replaced the standard digital camera.Overall, I love this phone and it's definitely worth the upgrade. It may not be perfect, but it is easy to overlook the few imperfections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible reliability and terrible companyI had the phone just over a year. It broke down conveniently out of the warranty. I could use the phone for a while then it shuts down by itself. Then it gets into a boot loop. I have to wait a couple of hours to turn it back on. Rinse and repeat. I've brought it to Samsung authorized repair store for repair. The motherboard is OK. So they re-flashed the software and wiped my data clean. That didn't work either. I am now holding an expensive paperweight. I have used over 1 dozen of smart phones and this is the only one having such a weird issue. This company also uses a bait and switch trick on trade-ins. They initially gave you credit but later to rescind it. I'm never gonna buy another Samsung product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Galaxy Yet!This Samsung Galaxy S8 is the greatest piece of technology I own to this day, and I do have serveral lol. But from the design of the phone, the performance, and all around ease of use all while being simplistic yet sophisticated, IT IS FANTASTIC. My first Samsung Galaxy phone was the S3, from there I fell in love with Samsungs' design, functionality, and customization as compared to other big name brand companies, I'd take a Samsung every single time. The S8s' display is super clear, crisp, bright, and eye catching. Watching videos are wonderful and picture quality is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samsung Galaxy S8I switched from an Iphone 5S to Samsung Galaxy S8 a couple months ago and I am very disappointed with the performance this equipment. The battery doesn't last more than a full day under normal using conditions and if I want the battery to last for a whole day, I have to switch the set up to mid power saving mode, sacrificing performance over battery life.I am surprised by just how hot the phone gets when I use it. I've had many phones but this is the first one to get uncomfortably hot in my hand or against my ear. When I put it in my pocket I can feel the heat on my leg.Bixby requires a lot of work! This assistant is a hit and miss. In some occasions it activates on its own while I am in the middle of a meeting or while I am driving. Yes, while I am driving, sometimes Bixby hears the activation command from the radio and starts to take notes. It is really funny to see Bixby trying to catch up with the speakers. Besides the two mentioned issues, I like the design and the apps. I like switching from OS to Android but I think I paid too much for this brand. Looking forward to finishing my two years contract to move to another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best phone ever.I love phones. I have purchased many smartphones and tried. This S8 is THE BEST phone I have ever owned so far. Better than iphone 8, better than OnePlus 5, better than any phones in the market. I love the display. Bright, smooth, and easy to type. The battery life is good. All the features are very useful....but among all, the best is "Camera". Oh my.. this default camera has so many features and you do not need any third-party camera apps at all!!!The camera resolution is great and auto focus is amazing.I can go on so many pros, but so far none for cons.The best phone ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZINGLY SURPRISED!!!!Let me start by saying I was dead set on purchasing the Note 8. For financial reasons ONLY, I decided to go with the bundle deal. Let me tell you, I am NOT disappointed in any way. I absolutely LOVE my S8 and I wouldn't trade it for the world right now. My first epic moment was discovering the fact that I can divide the screen and work on TWO things at once. Can we say MULTI-TASKING EASY PEASY!!! On to my next epic thrill was the AWESOME feature called Bixby!! Who would have known the commands this little deal could do? I can take a picture of anything I need additional info on and this little gadget will give me details about it. So STOKED on it, I use it against Google!!! LMBO, seriously, try it!!! My children have since discovered my little friend Bixby and have since used it against me when I ask questions about hypothesis only the internet can handle. I'm overly impressed by the retina and fingerprint security features. It was very easy to set-up. It only took me two tries and I was ready to go. However, I am a fancy girl and I have long nails and that can be pretty tricky when I have to use my fingerprint to unlock my phone. So, to alleviate that, I only use it when I am going to be out of the house. Let's move along to the one feature that EVERYONE was talking about at the store, the CAMERA. YASSSSSS honey, the camera is so clear and precise I can see everything I want to see and even some things I don't!!! The adorable little animations that you can utilize to make your pics even MORE picturesque are to die for. I mean who knew I can catch fish in my mouth just by opening my mouth!!! Totally hilarious. On to the battery, I have had many cell phones that usually die after 24 hours. This phone can hold it charge VERY well. I may have to charge it fully every other day. No, I'm not a HEAVY cell phone user, but I am better that an average user. The storage is great for all the apps and the pics I need, no complaints there. The functionality of this phone is great for beginners, pros, and tweenies (in between). I can honestly say I am very impressed with the S8. The fact that I can track my GF2 health along with the S8 is priceless. I have become more health conscious since I purchased both. I set daily goals and monitor my exercise more now that I have ever. These are great products and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an affordable, well built pair of mobile accessories. Great job Samsung. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not much better than an s7edgeI purchased an unlocked version of this to replace an s7edge with broken glass. I am not sure this is an upgrade to that phone. Performance seems similar to my old one. The fingerprint placement is truly horrid. The lack of volume control for the camera shutter is annoying. I might ship this back and get a PIxel2

Rated 5 out of 5 by from S8 or not?I have always been a fan of Samsung products. When I first got the S8, I was excited. Samsung Galaxy S8. 5.8 inches of AMOLED screen with almost no bezel. The screen is in a 18:9 aspect ratio compared to the movie standard of 16:9 so basically you will not get 5.8 inches of screen when watching videos. There will be black bars on the left and right of the screen. There is an option to crop it to fit the whole screen though. No problems with the screen being hard to read outdoors in sunlight. There is a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone that works wonderful. I never felt that it was hard to reach the spot to get it to work. The exterior of the S8 is mostly a glossy glass which is a big finger print magnet and is slippery to hold. A good case will fix this. An annoying thing I find myself doing is always accidentally pressing the "Bixby" button when I was wanting to adjust the volume. There is no physical home button or the capacitive buttons like on previous galaxy phones. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen brings up the buttons. Alarm clock has a neat feature where it will ring and have a voice prompt giving you the time and weather for the day. The "Always on" screen while phone is in standby mode is a great feature where it displays the time, date, and other useful informations but only displays in portrait mode. Standing it up on the side of the phone will not rotate the clock. All in All.... The new S8 is a good upgrade with great features. Sleek, thin and light phone with the best in class screens makes it worth it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning, BEAUTIFUL PHONE.By far, the best phone I have ever owned. I have had it since it came out 5 or 6 months ago. No problem at all. Bixby is cool, but I honestly wish it wasn't a button. It would do well just as a pre-loaded app. The camera is amazing in so many different settings. Everything from PRO to night time taking, etc. I have gone through water, the pool, rain, etc. and not any damage. It truly is a water resistant phone, of course up specifications^^ But every app and button responds rapidly. Fastest processor and able to customize this phone more than any other Galaxy I have owned. More options such as app button, widgets, settings, device maintenance optimizing. Overall, I recommend. Everyone needs it, especially over Apple phones that don't compare to all these features!! ( :

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty, useful but the glass scratches soooooo easilyI've had the Galaxy S8 for three months and it really is gorgeous. I also love the customization options and the secure folder feature. I just really wish the screen wasn't so fragile. In three years (years!) my iphone screen never had a scratch and I was not by any means careful with that poor thing. It's a miracle it never shattered. With this phone I feel like it'll be a miracle if I only have to replace the screen once. Maybe I'm being picky, but I feel that the beautiful design is severely undermined by its fragility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone!This is my 3rd Samsung phone, and they just get better and better. This one (Galaxy S8) is by far the best. I would heartily recommend it to all. It has all the functionality you could possibly want, there are myriad apps available -- many for free -- and it is a very smart Smart Phone! It's so intuitive. While manuals are available online, and there are many forums for users, it's just not that hard to figure out how to do anything you want to do. If you want to do something, or think it should do something...it probably does! The engineers at Samsung have already thought of it! Great phone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Phone, but FrustratingI like the Samsung Galaxy S8, but find it very frustrating. First the button for Bixby is in the absolute worst location, so each time I pick up the phone it launches Bixby. Additionally, Samsung pushes so many intrusive advertisements that I have not only disabled Bixby, I am ready to switch to a different phone. Seriously Samsung, you need to send me a full screen ad while I am using navigation and it cancels the navigation and I have to start over?? If you like ads, please buy this phone, if not, you may want to buy another phone.

The screen is a work of art, has beautiful design and construction and has all the performance you need in a phone to do anything you'd reasonably want to do. Has no problem multitasking. Battery life has also been better than expected from the 3000mah battery, it gets me thru an entire day with normal usage easily with well over 50% battery to spare. Buy with confidence, this is a great piece. It's not cheap but I think it's a very fair deal still considering the sheer amount of research and development that goes into a product like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good camera, nice screen but some bad design choicesScreen is definitely the highlight of this upgrade. however, that's about it compared to the very well rounded and capable S7. i will focus on the negatives which is most people care about when considering upgrading:1. rounded screen looks nice but not very practical. it is slippery and hard to hold on to. i always avoid "edge" version of the galaxy phones but with S8, i have no choice. the S8 renders the color in a much warmer manner. it almost feel like used with that yellowish tune on display. 2. Sound quality. i thought this wont be a big deal but i completely changed my mind after comparing my "old" phone, the Axon 7 to S8. the speakerphone, headphone and bluetooth experience on Axon 7 is way superior than S8 in both recording and play back. if anything made me start to regret this "upgrade", it will be the sound quality.3. Finger print scanner - no doubt it was a dumb design to put it besides the camera, everyone agreed right? it is also much slower than Axon 74. no physical "home" keys - it just slows me down in operating the phone. in addition, samsung did't do a good job utilizing the extra space after removing the physical keys. the screen is bigger but the app icons are actually smaller. i was staring at the beautify wall paper and wondering which icon was calendar and which one was calculator. what's the point?5. software- full of bloat ware as usual. replacement of google now by Bixby and samsung voice recognition was sub-par and the "smart switch" app did not work for Axon 7 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance and video qualityImpressed with the quality of video playback, loading times, and overall performance of this device. The one thing that worries me is the loss of audio which many users have faced. Mine started working again after a long phone call on speaker phone so it must be software issues. Other than that it has been excellent so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significant upgrade to GSIIIMy last phone was a Galaxy SIII so naturally this was quite the upgrade.The screen is clear and bright and I can appreciate the larger size without being too big.Battery life so far has been excellent lasting ~2 days without GPS use or gaming/video.Quick charging with the OEM charger is very fast. The facial recognition is a bit sketchy and I often just use the fingerprint method to unlock. Some complain about placement but I have long fingers so it is not an issue for me. The look and feel is very nice so I opted for a minimalist cover/case, in fact I bought the Samsung brand. This does not include screen coverage or much drop protection but with Gorilla glass I'm not worried and prefer the sleek feel and clean look. Still waiting for my 'Entertainment Pack' (Memory Card, Stand & Netflix).. One more thing, the provided AKG headphones are decent but the controls only offer volume up/down no pickup/hangup button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AnnoyingI'm not sure what they were thinking with the newest system update but it is annoying & inconvenient. It moved a bunch of features around & removed some such as the clock at the top (it moved it to the left & won't let me move it back to the right), it doesnt let you select a picture/theme background for text messages, & although I turned off the send read notifications it asks me every single time I open a text message as to whether or not I want to turn it on! I'm a behavior therapist & if I have a client who is trying to hurt others or themself I don't have time to sit there & ponder whether or not I want to turn something on that I've already told it I dont want. The new large screen titles are also tedious & bothersome. I would only recommend this if they would fix these issues. Otherwise, I definitely wouldn't recommend it to those who work in the medical field.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery expaned 5 mos after warranty expiredWarranty is only for one year. 5 mos. after warranty expired, my phone ended up like many of them -- the battery expanded and the case is popping open. I have no recourse other than to trash the (expensive!) phone and buy a new one. For what it cost, it should last more than 1.5 years! This is the last Samsung product I will purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Performance/Price Phone in November 2018I bought it for $400 with the student discount and I believe that it is the best phone for the price. I do not carry my wallet anymore. Samsung Pay (MST) works literally everywhere that accepts credit cards. No lags no freezes so far. The only downside from the modern flagships is the camera, but nothing else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never again.....This has been the worst phone experience of my life. Had the phone a whole 9 months and it stopped working. If I hadn't financed it I wouldn't have it replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OkayI upgraded from Sunday to s8 thinking the glass body would make this more durable, phone. I was wrong,had screen cracked,so had it replaced,with insurance,still cost you fee,45 days later ,phone fell from,couch to floor with case that is full body built in screen protector,and it lasted only 45 days so.before I spend any more $$ top the already high dollar price they want charge I'm not paying to replace a faulty device over & over,I will get iphone,who u don't see them having these issue on going, instead of wry about paying for repair, whenever it's clearly all over internet,about these screen issues on s8! Very disappointed such nice phone with cheap non tempered glass. Very much over priced for the damages it repeats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily the best phone I've ever ownedI absolutely love the design of this phone. The software runs flawlessly and the iris scanner hasn't failed me once. It was easy to set up and transfer my data from my iPhone 6S using the Smart Switch app. The cameras that it has equipped are the best I have ever had and I love taking selfies with it. The only complaint I have is how easy the screen scratches, I have had the phone for 3 days and it already has a bunch of tiny scratches on the screen. Other than that small dissatisfaction this phone is everything I could have hoped for and I can't wait for the Note 8 to come out. I give this product 4.75 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This phone has a great featuresAll that has function of this phone are great except one which has a problem with earphone. I cannot listen to music , voice with Headphone. Maybe It is not work in Earphone connection of the Phone. Overall good, but has a defect in my new phone. Basic functions often are more important than gorgeous works. I think Earphone function is very important as cell phone. It seems necessary to improve the completeness of the products before it is sold to consumers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAMSUNG S8 SPONTANEOUSLY FACTORY RESETS BY ITSELFSamsung S8 has many costumer complaints about their phones spontaneously doing a factory reset. Happened to my phone before my eyes, and I could do nothing to stop it. Seeing all the complaints and no action by Samsung to correct it is horrifying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good phone but...The galaxy s8 is a good phone good performance with hiccups from time to time. I have the unlocked version and the down side of that is late updates and security patches is like Samsung don't have none working in that department, lg,htc and others have updated their phone to 8.0 oreo long time ago. Samsung don't update their phones until the new phones come out so can run and upgraded bad business

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone, ever!Had this phone almost 3 weeks now. Its amazing at everything it does. Only downside, is that it seems to drain the battery a little faster than my S6 Active. Havent done a real bench score but even if I dont use it for the first 4 hours of the day its down to 90%. My usage isnt heavy so I never drain the battery below 50% in any given day. Overall its the best phone I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phoneJust received my new phone. This is the first Samsung product I've owned but I doubt it will be the last. It has a beautiful design and all the latest features. Works flawlessly. My only concern is protecting it effectively with the edge design. I'm still looking for the best, most highly rated cover for it. All in all, I believe this was a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Firmware issue ruined it for meLoved this phone from day one. No issues. However, Samsung recently did an update that destroyed the firmware on the s8 phones. I've gone through so many phone calls with my provider and Samsung both and also one replacement phone, and soon another. My phone is LESS than a year old and I'm still making payments. Looking to me like I'll have to upgrade to an s9. Thanks Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this productThis product is amazing. You can do a lot with the phone. I like how you can personalize the phone more then the older phones. It's also pretty easy to use. Samsung overall is an amazing company. always trying to give us want we want. The New camera features are impressive. Samsung Changed a lot about the product while also keeping it the same as there other products. It's very high tech looking and feeling and i like that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would Recommend this Product in a Heartbeat!Pro: This Product has been my favorite device thus far! I have had 5 phones prior to this one and this one makes all of my previous phones feel cheap and low quality. I have had this device for 6 months now and it has not shown down. If you are looking for a phone that can last you a long time and a phone that can perform smoothly, then buy this product! It is great! Con: If you want fast updates, you might not get that. I have an unlocked Galaxy S8 US version and I have yet to receive Android Oreo 8.0.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a great phone...This is really a great phone, however once it cracked it started to mess up big time. My charge wouldn't hold, my music would pause on its own and Bixby would automatically come on without it even being touched. I love a Galaxy.,,but for a minute I thought about switching to and Iphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from S8 design is niceI love my phone so far. I've been a samsung user for the past 10 years and I have to admit that this phone is beautiful. It contains great options for customization. However, it is not easy to find a glass screen protector for this phone. They tend to reduce the phone's sensitivity. Therefore, I can only use film protector.
