Samsung Galaxy S8 Smartphone Review

 

Smaller and fine-spun. Samsung's successor of the successful Galaxy S7 immediately catches the eye with its new design language: narrower edges and more screen. The Galaxy S8 is also a slightly more balanced product than its sister model, and its price...

excellent screen ; stylish design ; fast SoC ; very good GPS qualities ; fast Wi-Fi ; Gigabit LTE ; decent call quality ; solid sensor configuration ; USB 3.1 with DP, HDMI, and OTG ; good battery life ; quick-charge and wireless charging ; water and...

...though not much better than in the predecessor ; no dual-SIM ; fingerprint scanner hard to find via touch ; SoC throttling during permanent load ; warranty does not cover damage due to liquids

With its Galaxy S8, Samsung has created a superb product that scores even a bit better than its larger Galaxy S8+ sister model. This was different in the S7 lineup, but the Plus model cannot take advantage of its larger battery and is also heavier....

Samsung Galaxy S8 review

 

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

Gorgeous display ; Excellent build quality, design ; Useful software features and options ; TouchWiz is a lot prettier ; Water-resistant

Bixby is hardly useful ; Poor speaker placement ; $100 more expensive than S7

The Galaxy S8, in both its sizes, is an excellent smartphone with great build quality, a fantastic screen, solid cameras, and standard daylong-battery life. The Bixby voice assistant is underwhelming, but you can turn it off and opt for Google...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is without a doubt the most beautiful, polished phone I've ever held. These words were true when I first reviewed it in April, and are still true a month on. I do have some additional insights since then -- scroll down a bit for...

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

 

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a gorgeous big-screen phone with a comfortable single-handed feel, and it's packed with top-notch components and promising new software.

Hand-friendly design. Gorgeous screen. Best processor and modem available.

Awkward fingerprint scanner placement. Average battery life.

Phones are connected devices. That's also what they do: connect us, to each other and to the internet. We create things, whether they're words or pictures, and we share them. The Galaxy S8 is the best phone available for creating things you want to...

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 OnePlus 3T

 

The OnePlus 3T is one of the most loved phones of 2016: a $440 phone with top level specifications, it has it all from the good design to camera performance, battery life and smooth user experience. It's a great-value-for-the-money device. But can it...

Affordable for what it is ; Fast performance ; Extremely fast Dash charging ; No microSD cards, but has 128 GB option ; Great camera ; Good battery life

There is one thing that draws a clear line between the Galaxy S8 and the OnePlus 3T, and it’s not the camera, the battery or the software: it’s price.

We have to ask — how does the 18-month-old Note 5 fare against the brand-new, futuristic-looking Galaxy S8+?

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Google Pixel

 

Late in 2016, the Google Pixel stirred the cozy arrangement of things in the Android space. The maker of the Android platform itself, Google, entered the phone game and did so with some big ambitions and a phone of its own: the Pixel. It was...

Smooth performance ; Incredible camera performance, great for both images and video ; Excellent video stabilization ; Good battery life ; Guaranteed to get software updates on day 1

It’s time to wrap things up: we’ve looked carefully at all the various aspect of the Galaxy S8 and the Google Pixel, and it’s now time to consider price.
