    Samsung shovels in the features (as usual) but at least the important ones are good... Very good. It's not cheap but it excels where it matters and that camera is outstanding. It's the best phone you can buy. Read more

    • Very pretty, Very fast, Superb camera
    • Bixby virtual assistant is a joke, Average battery life

    The question mark hanging over Bixby notwithstanding, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is a continuation of the excellence Samsung had developed with the Galaxy S7, and what is really a metaphorical rolling with the punches. Is the phone a total revolution? Read more

    The presumptive heir to the best Android crown is here: the Samsung Galaxy S8. A few years ago, the race to be the world’s favourite Android phone designer was wide-open. HTC would win it one year, and then LG would dazzle the next. Read more

    As we know, Samsung was going to wait a few weeks in order — it was speculated — to get the polish on its new Galaxy S8 range just right . MWC wrapped up in the first week of March, and Samsung waited until the end of March to do its show in New York … and while it might only have given Samsung as... Read more

    Bought it a month ago. It's my 4th Samsung phone in the last 8 years. The phone is so slick and light, you can easily forget that your holding it. Functions are awesome, responsive and easy to use. Looks beautiful. And,... it's a Samsung! You can't go wrong. Read more

    • It's such a beautiful phone, the biggest upgrade you could imagine from an old iPhone 4s. Switching over to Samsung was a risky change, but my god was it worth it.
    • The usual issues with getting to know the new operating system, but I got to know the device very quickly, and it's become my go to device for everything.

    I'm a couple of weeks into using the S8. Love the camera, fingerprint and biometric scan, and quality of the screen. Don't have any problem with the position of the finger scanner as some seem to. Read more
