Samsung Galaxy S8 review


Samsung's Galaxy S8 is mesmerizingly close to perfection with its fantastic display, useful interface, and eye-catching design.

Samsung Galaxy S8 review


The Samsung Galaxy S8 is without a doubt the most beautiful, polished phone I've ever held.

The best-looking phone around crushes it in performance, battery life, water-resistance and wireless charging. An external storage slot lets you keep more photos, videos and music.

Its awkwardly placed fingerprint reader leads to camera smears and longer unlock times, which is aggravating when you use it to unlock your phone dozens of times a day.

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Review: On the shoulders of giants


In the cat and mouse game between Samsung and Apple, the user is the real winner, and never has that been so apparent as with the new Samsung Galaxy S8. Undoubtedly the most eagerly-anticipated Android smartphone of 2017, the Galaxy S8 is Samsung's...

There had been suspicions that the fallout from the Note 7 battery fiasco might sour would-be Galaxy S8 buyers. Based on the degree of pre-launch excitement, however, those fears seem to have been unfounded. Whether it’s the safety promise implicit in...

Samsung Galaxy S8


Interestingly, the rear-facing camera isn't receiving much of an upgrade when compared to the S7. While Samsung has done work on the software to improve shooting times and picture quality, both models of the S8 use a 12-megapixel sensor (F1.7) with OIS...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: Near-perfect comeback leaves competitors in the dust


How does a company shake a global recall of a high profile product? If you're the world's biggest smartphone maker, you keep doing what you know -- tweaking, innovating, improving and building the very products that lead to success.

Amazing screen ; Fast, reliable camera ; Bigger display, smaller housing ; Fast performance ; Waterproof

Bixby isn't ready ; Some software tweaks just don't make sense ; Lack of stereo speakers

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs LG G6


2017 will likely go down in smartphone history as the year when the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 seriously disturbed the waters with their arrival, marking a paradigm shift for smartphone design. They are flashy, they look cool, they have top-end...

A bit cheaper without compromising much ; Versatile wide-angle camera lens

No doubt about it – these two are the best of the best Android devices on the shelves at the moment. Both Samsung and LG have put their hearts in the respective flagships and the results of that are visible – there's hardly an aspect in which either...

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S7


The Galaxy S8 is a phone that catches the eye. The star of the show is its tall, bezel-less display that looks mesmerizing. Complemented with the slight curves and the edge functionality that give the phone a character, the S8 is a looker.

Still a great camera ; Still a great smartphone all-around ; Much better price

So let’s draw the line and look at the price difference between the two. The Galaxy S7 comes with one big advantage: a considerably lower price. You can currently get the S7 for $20 over 24 months on Verizon, while the S8 costs $28 over the same...

Samsung Galaxy S8 Review


It hasn't exactly been easy for Samsung these last few years. Sure, the S7 family turned out to be pretty successful, but the previous two generations weren't met with top marks, while 2017 ended pretty badly with the Note 7 fiasco. To make matters...

Elegant and thoughtful hardware design ; Solid all-around performance ; State-of-the-art phone camera ; A fresh, new look for Android

Graphics performance could be better ; Display colors aren't too natural

Despite the stark new appearance and display aspect ratio, it is yet to be decided if this new, almost bezel-less design trend of the Galaxy S8 is going to lead to a meaningful change in how we experience the smartphone as a tool. Having the bezels...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: the curved wonder


You know the feeling when everything just makes sense and feels right? That's what I've been feeling as I've spent the past few days with the Galaxy S8. The new flagship from Samsung features a modern design that will set the trend for 2017. Its...

Design ; Display ; User interface ; Performance

Moderate battery life ; Fingerprint scanner position ; Bixby assistant

After the disaster that happened with the Note 7, anticipation for the Galaxy S8 has been very high, as another huge mistake would be catastrophic for Samsung. So, Samsung played it safe under the spotlight by continuing the evolution of the S series'...
