    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.

    Best phone ive ever had yyet!! It has alll the specs i i lovee and want on a smartphone today the camera is amazing no doubt about it i even think its better than the S9 at the moment not in low light but bcuz its consistent and pics and vids are not as washed out. Still a killer flagship in mid end of 2018 if i must say. Battery is good CPU & GPU is still enough to handle all the most powerful applications even Fortnite Rules of Survival PUBG racing games u name it. Ive used this in the pool shower rain still works like a champ slow mo for skating and activities i do. Always on Display is the best. Still going to get updates even Android Pie (9.0) i love it.

    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.

    The camera is phenomenal. It has so many features overall it definitely lives up to its description of a smart phone(not many cell phones do). The curved screen is one of my favorite features it makes the screen look almost 3D. The fact that Samsung office is so simple to navigate is amazing I complete homework and office work right off of my phone. I have had it for 2 weeks and the more I use it the more I love it. I definitely recommend it to anyone even the I phone fanatics.

    As a prepaid cell user for more than 7yrs, I am accustom to having to pay full price for my handset. When my Galaxy 5 died 2 days before New Year I just couldn't afford a high end Galaxy at that time. LAST month I decided it was time. After 2 weeks of online comparison I found BB had the better deal. They beat the carrier by $150 and a BB coupon for an extra 10% SWEETENED THE DEAL!!!! Thanks Best Buy!!! Btw... I Love my Galaxy S8. It's everything I expected and more.

    The Galaxy S8 does everything you need your phone to do! Whether using it to be productive or just having fun socially this should be your top choice hands-down! The clarity of the infinite screen, & the brilliant camera will have you wondering why every phone doesn't look the same way. I wanted it every since it released & at this amazing price Best Buy is selling it for through Boost Mobile it can't be beat. In love with my phone!

    This cell is replacing my Samsung S5 and it finally was on it's last leg so I purchased the Samsung S8. I finally bit the bullet and got it on sale. I hate cell phone contracts and I've used boost mobile a few years now and see no difference if I had a cell with a major carrier. The is great and has so many features I haven't figured out how to use them all. I love the style of the phone with the rounded corners very sleek.

    This in amazing phone! Got it or my wife who transitioned from the iPhone due to frustrations with storage space and usability for data backup. With a removable media microSD slot, she is setup for 200+GB of space and won't have to empty her phone for a long time! The programs are easy to use, easy to get, and processing is fast! I can't wait to buy this or the S8+ for my next phone.

    This phone surpasses any other phones I've used, including iPhones. It has great cameras, insane speeds, many ways to customize the phone to your liking, and man; the infinity edge display will leave you in awe! The screen resolution is 1440p and the edge panel comes in handy!

    Every smartphone has a compromise of some sort, but I'm finding that this S8 has the fewest of any phone I've ever owned. If you're a veteran android user, today's Touchwiz overlay is the most android-like ever. It takes exceptional photos, such that iOS users will find the camera quick and better than anything they've ever used.

    I absolutely LOVE my new phone! The camera is amazing and easy to access. It charges in a heartbeat!! I can actually HEAR the directions when using the GPS. It is SO fast! I did buy a fold over case to protect the screen and that works well with the phone. This phone was not cheap...but worth every cent! I would buy it again!

    I've owned the Galaxy phones since the S3 and each of them unanimously outshines the next. Just as in the case of this magnificent S8, you will not be disappointed. Everything about it is much more high tech than it's predecessor. With this guy you can't go wrong.

    My whole family are faithful Samsung users. I upgraded from the Galaxy S7 which was a very nice phone but the Galaxy S8 is simply the best phone i ever owned. It is cosmetically beautiful and the functionality is beyond amazing. Plus the price Best Buy offered was very affordable.

    I've had this for a little bit less than a month, and no problems. I LOVE the design !! Very slick and the screen is VERY clear. Ive used Bixby several times and I hate to say it, but I like the Google Assistant better. It's more responsive to my voice.

    Well, I finally treated myself to a new phone. This phone is Amazing. You won't go wrong with the S8 upgrade. Also, I've had my Boost Service since Nextel having great service and the Best Buy Employees are wonderful especially Denise and Cheyenne.
