    Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are not just smartphones – they’re superphones. Apart from a slick design and incredible Infinity Display, the device backs up its supermodel looks with brains, performance and features that set it apart from anything else on the market today. Read more

    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

    There’s no doubt in my mind that the Galaxy S8 is a great phone. It’s powerful, it’s fast, it looks and feels great, it does everything that you could expect a phone to do, with a great camera, and a battery that’ll last a full day for most people. 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

    Samsung are the leaders now. All the features are incredible and easy to use. Bixby without voice is probably the exception. Also love the LED case. Yes a gimmick but a cool one at that. I don't upgrade everytime there is a new phone so there is a huge difference betweenmy s5 and the s8. Read more

  2. It's a Samsung! What else there is to say :)

    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

  3. Best Smartphone on the market right now

    Out of all the smart phones Ive used in my life Samsung has always made the best impression. The apple ecosystem has always been strong competition however the battery life on the iPhone was always ridiculous which makes no sense because their macbook pro batteries are incredible. Read more

    I have owned this phone for about 4 weeks now. Its very sleek but also slippery. The long narrow screen and the glassy material front and back makes it easy to slip out of your hand or pocket. I case would simply resolve this issue. Read more
