The Samsung Galaxy S8 plus, is the culmination of the innovations made and lessons learned through the evolution on the Galaxy family of phones. I started with the 3 then the 6 active, and now this. The battery life is incredible, haven't been clocking it, but having to keep in mind when to charge it, rarely crosses my mind anymore. Because even with the heavy App and data use I put this thing through it seems unphased. Removable/upgradable storage! Incredible image, and the infinity screen is flawless. I don't necessarily like, how they have positioned the volume control, compared to it's placement on the 6 active, but it really doesn't take away from the phone overall. The speed of this device and the OS has to be mentioned. Very, very fast, and snappy. Uninstalling is almost instantaneous, uploading, downloading, or transferring files is only throttled by you network connection or data plan. The device will not be the reason for any long waits. The fingerprint scanner is very user friendly, and not gimmicky. It actually works, without you having to stop and carefully align your print to match. Fantastic sound and video quality. Finally, more impressive than all of the other great features this phone has, the best of all has got to be the camera. Pro level device, check out some of the auto mode comparisons on Youtube, side by side with the Pixel, and high end DSLR cameras. I still think the Pixel in auto mode may have a slight advantage over the in some photo situations, no other camera is worth even mentioning in the same conversation. But with that being said, when you add all of the other great things S8 has packaged into it with a camera of this caliber....no competition in the current market. This is the best. I wouldn't worry about a "lemon" situation either, I purchased 4 of these for my family around the same time, and everyone is equally pleased. Get one!
