Gimmicks aside this is the best android smartphone you can buy

5.0
Verdict: Where to start with a Samsung Galaxy S phone launch? These phones aim to be the very best on the market and in recent years, they've arguably succeeded.

Samsung Galaxy S8 G950F 64GB

4.5

Hands on Galaxy S8 review: who needs bezels?

4.5
Verdict: We love the Galaxy S8. It's an incredible smartphone, but there are caveats - not least that terrible fingerprint reader. It's also not a wallet-friendly choice, but then neither is it intended to be. What it is intended to be is one of 2017's best smartphones.
Pros: Brilliant display, Blazing fast performance, Bluetooth 5 and dual audio
Cons: Rear fingerprint reader placement, Face recognition hit and miss, Bixby needs to differentiate

Samsung Galaxy S8

Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S8 is definitely the best looking smartphone in the market today. It's fast and has a good camera too, but those are only incremental updates over its predecessor. Buy it if you want a phone that you can show off.
Pros: Compact, Beautiful design, Great display, Waterproof, Fast
Cons: Battery life could be better, Full glass body can be precarious

Galaxy S8

No reviews
Verdict: The past few months have been a humbling time for Samsung. The Galaxy Note 7's explosive debut and double recall eventually led to an unprecedented cancellation of Samsung's flagship device. The recall process and resulting investigation kept the company's name in the mud for months and months.
Pros: A slim-bezel design finally brings a more modern design to the Galaxy line, On-screen buttons allow for smaller bezels, bigger screens, and a customizable (and correctable) button order, Samsung's always-on hard-press home button is an awesome and innovative feature, Samsung Pay combination of NFC...
Cons: The gimmicks. The iris scanner, curved screen, and heart rate sensor all seem designed to give talking points to your local Verizon salesperson, rather than provide a good user experience for customers, The glass back is fragile and a fingerprint magnet, Touchwiz is still a janky lag-fest.

Samsung Galaxy S8

5.0
Verdict: Phones have become a little stale. Whether it's an iPhone 7 , Huawei P10 , Sony Xperia XZ Premium or any other flagship phone, they all look and feel the same. But just when I thought a phone couldn't surprise and delight me any more, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has proved me wrong.
Pros: Awesome display, A phone that feels like the future, Stunning camera, It's actually innovative
Cons: Awfully placed fingerprint sensor, Bixby is a bit of a dud

Samsung Galaxy S8 – Review

4.4
Verdict: Samsung definitely needed to do something big with the S8 and the larger-screened S8+. They've not had the best time of it recently, and there's been widespread coverage of the infamous exploding battery issue. The S8 needed to be good, and indeed, it is.

Samsung Galaxy S8 G950F 64GB

Samsung Galaxy S8 review

4.5
Verdict: Samsung has taken the best phone around and made it even better with an impressive Infinity screen and premium design. It ticks a shedload of boxes - as you'd expect from a flagship. It's one of the best phones of 2017, and is nearly half the price of the iPhone X. But the biometrics are a let down.

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: the curved wonder

4.5

Samsung Galaxy S8 G950F 64GB

4.1
Verdict: The Galaxy S8 is a beautiful phone that does everything a modern flagship should, and it does it all really well. It's just too fragile to recommend completely, and those curved edges don't do anything for me. Your mileage will vary, of course.

Samsung Galaxy S8: Big, bold and beautiful

5.0

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: ahead of the curve

4.5
Verdict: That's the first thing Samsung's product manager said to me before introducing the company's new flagship Galaxy S8 last month. He's not wrong: the modern concept of the smartphone has been around for a decade now, and the differences between devices are exceedingly incremental.
Pros: Gorgeous design, Meticulous fit and finish, Great camera, Big screen, but not a big phone, Gorgeous design, Meticulous fit and finish, Great camera, Enormous, stunning display
Cons: Annoying preinstalled apps, Atrocious fingerprint scanner placement, Merely average battery life, Bixby is useless, Annoying preinstalled apps, Atrocious fingerprint scanner placement, Bixby is useless, Larger size can be cumbersome

Galaxy S8 Review: The Best Phone Will Only Get Better

4.5
Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are the best Android phones you can buy, and they're not even finished yet.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Smartphone Review

4.6
Verdict: 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.
Pros: 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 dust-resistant, very good camera,..

This Ardent Samsung Fan Is Disappointed In S8+ Bugs and CNET Contributor Dolcort

4.4
Verdict: CNET contributor Jessica Dolcort or her cohorts engage in stacking the user commentary. She/they did it on their initial Note 7 review, and she/they do it again here on the S8/+ review burying vocal negative user reviews about the very real bugginess of the current Samsung Galaxy flagship.
Pros: Galaxy familiarity and improvement evolution
Cons: Constant Arbitrary Rebooting (at least 4 times per week)

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: this simply irresistible phone is the best on the market

4.5
Verdict: The iris scanner, the heart-rate monitor and Bixby in its current state exemplifies what's wrong with Samsung's approach to mobile. It's the endless array of features, useful or not, that Samsung throws at its phones. It's the hope that simply doing more makes the S8 better than the competition.
Pros: A super-fast, frustration-free phone for everyday use; Stunning design and build quality; Sharp edge-to-edge screen puts the focus on content
Cons: Extremely low-light camera performance in auto needs improving; Iris scanner is hopelessly fiddly; Bixby is incomplete and can't compete with Google Now and Assistant

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: A mobile masterpiece

5.0
Verdict: With many phones looking like clones, or brands nonchalantly pushing out the same old design year-on-year, Samsung is in that favourable position of offering something exciting in the Galaxy S8. It's a phone that defines flagship design with its visually arresting dual curved edges.
Pros: The most eye-catching phone design you can buy today, great-looking 18.5:1 aspect ratio AMOLED screen is ideal for entertainment (even more so when HDR comes into play), best Samsung software experience to date, decent battery life and optimisations, rear camera is excellent
Cons: Fingerprint scanner is poorly placed, iris and face recognition logins have limited success, Bixby button initially useless, connectivity can cause issues with perfect playback/graphical functions, some features hidden in menus, expensive

Pros: Stunning display in a useful new aspect ratio, Industry leading performance with excellent battery life, Bluetooth 5, fast wireless charging,...
Cons: Bixby is a flop, The fingerprint sensor is located in the worst possible place, It's still full of bloatware and duplicative Samsung apps

Review: Samsung Galaxy S8

4.0
Verdict: How different, or better can you make an Android smartphone? After all, the glossy design, curved display and 12MP camera of the Samsung Galaxy S8 aren't that different from the Galaxy S7 Edge that only came out last year.

Samsung Galaxy S8 G950F 64GB

Verdict: 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.
