    It's alright

    A lot of the features I had dialled in on my last phone are automatic now. The dictionary is most noticeable. Since I can't program the words anymore, autocorrect has become a nightmare. Often, the phone persistently changes words that are jargon, and is really difficult to get used to. The keyboard also changed, which makes no sense. It's a classic case of IT engineers lacking basic understanding of the human counterpart. I thought buying another galaxy would get me a new improved version. I was wrong. It's a new, completely different phone. Pros: Faster processing, improved reception, better functionality overall from a hardware perspective. This is coming from the S5, so I'm not really surprised. I liked that phone a lot though. Of all of the galaxies I've had, that one was the best. It just got old, and compatibility was becoming an issue. I also like Bixby. I haven't used it much yet, but it's pretty cool. I hope Samsung gets it running properly, instead of abandoning it like most new ideas. Cons; I can't get a lot of the functions to work the way I like. It's like Samsung feels that they know what's best, and I should learn to trust their wisdom. It's annoying. My phone is supposed to be convenient for ME. I expect to use it MY way. My old phone allowed me to make it work the way i like. This one doesn't. Maybe I just haven't found the adjustments yet, but you'd think they'd be similar. The lock screen is really annoying. I have to go through three screens to get in. There's cooler biometrics on it, but so what? Is it really more secure? Is it more convenient? I don't think so. It's nice having the clock on the screen when it's not in use if you want, but it IS a hassle. The home button is gone. Now, there's a haptic feedback pressure sensor with no other use. I suppose that makes it easier to waterproof, but there have always been cases that solve that problem. Now the phone wouldn't work properly with a watertight case. I guess that's just adjusting, but I feel better having an actual button. The phone seems like it was designed strictly for people who enjoy flaunting the newest technology, not people like me who want the absolute best functionality. If I was in charge of Samsung, I'd have a version intended for people like me. Only tested, reliable functions. Let someone else field test the latest ideas. I want my tech to work the first time, every time. Other people like the newest prototypes. This phone is good for them. Summary: If you want the newest features, and don't really depend on your phone, this is a really hip phone to get. If you can't do without your phone working perfectly, you would probably be frustrated by this one. It's fine, overall, but by not being able to adjust functions to fine tune them, this phone forces you to give too much attention to tasks you just want to finish, and get on with your day. Honestly, this phone is making me nostalgic for the days when we all used landlines.

    I've been an LG user for years and decided to try the Samsung after reading the reviews. Although there a few LG perks I miss, this phone is pretty amazing. Feels great in the hand, perfect for one handed operation. Activation... well, enter your phone # and it does the rest, can't get any easier than that, sign in to your Google account... info from last phone transfers. Display is bright and clear, camera takes crystal clear pics, video quality is super sharp. The Iris scanner to unlock your phone is super fast and my favorite of all the unlock options. The Samsung browser is very fast and I've been using it over Chrome. Plenty of memory and you have the option to uninstall some of the pre-installed apps. Handles the live stream stocks app wonderfully, it's like a laptop in your hand. Awesome phone.

    Compared to my s5, this phone is GORGEOUS. I got the black so it is a fingerprint magnet :( I don't understand why people are complaining so much about the fingerprint reader, like it's not that bad, chill out. The camera is Awesome! I think it's cool they added in filters like on sc. Always on display is cool but I'm scared of burn in so I haven't used it. The home "button" doesn't feel like an actual button when pressed, it is just a short vibration feeling on the back of the phone. All three software buttons are always lit up when using the screen, unless there's a way to turn it off, which I haven't found. If you are looking to upgrade I suggest this phone.

    Alright let me get started by saying I had both Apple and android in the past what I like about the iPhone is that it just works, it those perfectly what it says it does and to me android is more complicated . Now let's get back to the s8 well the phone is amazing after you get back to the android of doing stuff it's almost a perfect phone great specs very fast the stuff in this phone will be the stuff you will see on the iPhone years from now and they will try to get credit for it and say they did it first. Don't believe that people other company's like Motorola HTC and LG and Samsung are years a head from Apple and the s8 is a perfect example of this so if your looking for a new phone and have the money get this one but yes the price is very high.

    A truly amazing phone! This phone has a beautiful screen! I liked almost everything about it, except the battery life could’ve been a better. The more stuff I had on it (Pictures, Videos, Apps, etc.) the faster the phone would drain its battery life. This phone is also made out of mostly glass (front and back), so I would highly recommend a case to lower the risk of breaking it. But overall it is truly a great phone!

    The S8 is a beauty. I've had it for about three weeks now, & I can say it is fast, easy to set up & use. My main interest was the camera & I am so glad to see it takes clear, beautiful pictures. My only concern, & reason why I gave 4 stars, is that I've been having trouble w/the iris & fingerprint recognition. It takes a while to recognize me or it doesn't at all & makes me type in my backup passcode. Now I just use a pattern lock to unlock the phone. Other than that, I'm liking this phone very much.

    This is the best Samsung Galaxy phone to date. Battery life is excellent. Speed is amazing programs run smoothly. 64 gig bites of storage plus an external capability storage. Camera takes great pictures in the light and in the dark. The regular S8 is perfect size even for large hands like myself. I have nothing but great things to say about this phone. Highly recommend this phone to anyone. Samsung has made it to where you can delete bloat ware programs you really don't care for. Two thumbs up.
