    I've had the phone for nearly a month now and I love it. I probably didn't need to upgrade, as my Galaxy S5 was perfectly functional although seemed to be running slower. I'm not much of a phone-tographer, but the cameras seem to be a big improvement over the S5. Camera functions too, feel more intuitive and quicker. Im not a huge fan of the curved edges. Aside from allowing more comfort for the hand, the edge feels more like a gimmick than anything. It essentially disappears once the phone is in a case, which is almost a necessity considering the price. I understand some might find it annoying that the fingerprint sensor is now on the back of the phone, but I haven't yet gotten onboard with biosecurity technology. I still like my 4 digit PIN, so I can't speak to the iris scanner or facial recognition either. I was worried about the absence of a tactile home button, but it hasn't been an issue. Bixby, like biosecurity, is something I haven't found a use for yet. It's exclusive button is very close to the volume down button, which can be mildly aggravating if you are relying on touch alone to minimize sound. Speaking of sound, the speaker is now on the bottom of the phone as opposed to the back. As someone who watches/listens to a good deal of media on my phone, I find this change from my S5 a great improvement. As for battery life, I've been extremely satisfied so far. I was very happy with my S5's battery life and I find that my S8 lasts considerably longer. I am slightly nervous about not having access to my battery, though. Over the two and a half years I used my S5 I did have to remove the battery a handful of times to reset the phone due to unresponsiveness or glitches. Another improvement over the S5 is lack of a plastic back, which made that phone feel cheap. Conversely, the higher end metal and glass back of this phone make it feel incredibly fragile. It's too bad that something so sleek and well-designed requires a case to keep it from scratches, scuffs and cracks. The advertised "infinity screen is non-existent with the addition of even the slimmest case. Lastly, I really like the included headphones in comparison to those of the S5. They are a little more substantial in the ear, keeping them from popping out and also allowing a good deal of noise-cancellation. The cord feels to be made of a sturdy metal mesh that comes off as rugged and long-lasting.

    Very hard to change from IPhone 6 because we intended on waiting for IPhone 8. Took the plunge and very pleased with S8, very fast, simple and can't say we will be going back to iphone.

    Switched from an LG G5 The phone is very fast and so far my battery is lasting longer than a day with a lot of use. I left the screen on 1080 which still looks great. As someone else pointed out, screen protectors are a pain and not just the zagg one. None of them seem to fit the slight curve. Phone is fast and looks amazing

    So I was really excited to get this phone. It looks great, it's fast, the call clarity is superb, the screen size is amazing, and the camera is top notch. BUT, the screen has already cracked. The phone has not been dropped yet, and I'd like to think I take good care of it. I noticed a small spec in the screen one afternoon, and it got worse over the next few days, and now it runs up an down the entire screen. I honestly have no idea what I did to make this happen. I guess now I am stuck with it for 24 more months. Luckily, none of the functionality seems lost, so I am still enjoying it for the most part.

    Very nice phone. It's the latest flagship phone from Samsung and it does not disappoint. The screen is beautiful, the performance is snappy. The USB-C port is convenience, and, importantly to me, the new Samsung S8/S8+ support video-out via the USB-C port. You need to buy a USB-C to HDMI adapter separately, though.
