    Pickup preordered phone on 4/21. Once Best buy was done setting up the phone part, it was up to me to get all the apps, file, contacts, photos, etc off my old phone Note 4 on to new phone s8 Plus. With my old phone having 32gb and my new phone have 64gb there was no worrying about bring able to get everything from my old phone to my new phone. First I used ATT Mobile Transfer app over Wi-Fi but was limited to 16gb for transfer, which of core I had more then that, so unchecked a few things and off it went transferring for old to new over my home WIFI said would take 1 hour and a half, with AC net work only took about 45 minutes. Then ran again to get my videos transferred. But ran into a problem my video alone were over the max 16gb limit. So went with Samsung Smart Switch over WI-FI (note can do USB cable too)which had no limits and took a long time but transferred all my apps, file, contacts, photos, etc to new Phone. Then only took a few minutes for everything to be installed and setup on new phone. This phone is fast, so much faster then my Note 4. Now looking and the size of the phone the s8 plus is just as tall but not as wide compared to my Note 4. But I found if so much easer to use with one hand due to the narrow body. Battery life has been very good up at 4 am and is now almost 11 am and at 71%, now I have not been using it every minute since I work up but I have been collecting game rewards every hour or so and playing a few other games between collecting rewards. Talked on Phone for about 40 minutes and no problems, clear sound and not dropped while driving about 20 miles across town. So after only one day I would recommend the you should by One! With the monthly program service that ATT does it is affordable for most. Thank you for reading!

    I haven't been this excited about a phone. Three things that really set this phone apart are: 1. Amazing screen and clarity. I was pleasantly surprised to see lights around the edge when playing music. 2. Speed. Fastest phone I ever tried. 3. The earphones that are included have amazing sound clarity. They cost $99 but are included in the box. Oh yeah. The camera is amazing too. So happy.

    Be careful buying from Best Buy vs Samsung

    I pre-ordered and purchased the Samsung S8+ from Best Buy on 4/22/17. Unfortunately, I'm having a pixeling issue with the phone. I take the phone back to Best Buy and they are unable to replace my S8+ phone since I'm out of the 14 day window. The Samsung reps at best buy assure me that Samsung will replace my new phone within a few days if I call and file a claim. I call best buy mobile help on the card provided by the bb Samsung experience rep. Eventually, I get transferred to Samsung. Samsung advises that because I didn't purchase the phone directly from samsung that I was ineligible for a replacement and could only send in my phone for repair with expected return time of 9 days. If this is Samsung's protocol for Best Buy, why on earth would I ever purchase a phone from Best Buy again?!!! I like best buy and the convenience generally offered. However, I have been strongly discouraged from ever buying a phone from Best Buy again. In addition, the VR and Samsung kit with headphones and mem card had to be ordered from Samsung in a timely manner. However, I couldn't order without proof of purchase and IMEI. As a result by 4/22/17, all special entertainment kits with the mem card, vr and headphones were sold out. If I would have purchased directly from Samsung, I could have beat the rush and got the highly anticipated Samsung kit for a nominal fee. Instead I stayed faithful to Best Buy and get burned by only getting the vr kit and no one honoring the replacement of month old phone. I realize it's 9 day turnaround, but this process is really disappointing and I feel I should have ordered my two phones from Samsung vs Best Buy. Tough lesson to learn.

    OS has a lot of errors and bugs.

    I get errors every day and they won't disappear. you can search forums and you see people are complaining about this version of androind on Samsung galaxy s8. I always get the error of "DQA stopped working" and "IMS stopped working". I have claimed my free VR but they did not approved my bestbuy receipt. It took me 2 hours for the first time to be on hold to talk to an Samsung agent about my problems. As I am writing now, I have been on hold for 1 hour and 8 minutes to talk to an agent to make sure I will get my free VR as they promoted. Basically I moved from having an Iphone 6 s plus to galaxy s8+ but I am totally disappointed with Samsung specially its costumer service and promotion department. After 4 days of people complaining in Samsung forum about errors we get they had not even posted one reply.

    beautiful, but...

    bought an S8 (AT&T) from Samsung direct, and its beautiful, but... My previous phone is a Huawei Honor 8, which I love. I expected the S8 to be so much better. In my opinion, it isn't. My Honor 8 has been lightning fast since the day I bought it, very very few issues at all. In the week I've owned the S8 I've had more issues than I had in months with the Honor 8. (glitches when navigating the phone, a couple random restarts, among other things). As almost everyone notes, the S8 fingerprint sensor is poorly placed, and is fussy to use. The Honor 8 fingerprint sensor is blindingly fast and works EVERY time, without fail, and is positioned perfectly. S8 camera is no doubt better than the Honor 8, but, the Honor 8 does some cool stuff with its dual cameras, and I've been delighted by the pics from it, regardless of the 'quality' at a pixel level. Also, the AT&T apps, and Samsung apps just annoy me. None of that on the Honor 8. (last night some apps installed themselves on the S8 from the 'galaxy app store' - apps I didn't request or want) So, my SIM is back in the Honor 8, and the S8 is going the way of eBay. In summary, the S8 is a really beautiful phone, feels like a perfectly machined piece of solid metal in the hand, really nice. Screen is awesome. Lots of cool features. Great phone. But personally I prefer the Honor 8, it just delights me every time I use it.

    A great looking phone that functions as ex[ected

    I have been looking forward to the S8+ for a while now. I'm glad to finally get my hands on it. Its not much different internally than the S7 or note 5 but the outside is really nice. Its much more refined than previous galaxy phones. I don't usually use a case on my phone so its external appearance is important to me. On a side note that has nothing to do with the phone itself. I preordered this phone, enticed by the option to pay $99 for the "samsung experience" package" like many others. It was a sweet enough deal to convince me to buy a phone without even seeing it. However, samsung had set aside such a limited number of these packages that they were out of them by mid-morning on release day. I docked a star for the shady marketing ploy.

    Excellent Smartphone!

    If an oddly placed fingerprint scanner, or poor lowlight facial recognition is a deal breaker for you then go no further, this isnt for you. It isnt a deal breaker for me. Super security isnt needed in my life, thankfully. The battery life is the surprise feature to me beleive it or not, a day and a half easy with normal usage...no movies or loooong you tubes. Screen on time is no worry to me. S7 Edge gave me about a day, 7am to 12pm. and it charges superfast. Remapped (yes you can) bixby button, now its my flashlite which is super handy. Screen is BEAUTIFUL, i get 7 more items in each folder, better size for scrolling, easily seen in sunlight. This screen is almost as big as the entire body of the S7 Edge, yet this device is only a couple centimeters bigger overall.Swipe up/down for app drawer is nice new feature. Love the dbl press power button for camera. The new on screen home button is a great improvement. Both faces are glass, so dont get caught up in colors or fingerprints because you WILL NEED a case for this. The "slimmer than most" design is good for those with average size hands like me and the slim design is better for retrieving from your pocket. Has a great proximity sensor which prevents accidental pocket turn on. Lowlight pictures are improved from S7. Comes with good headphones. Yes the S8+ is expensive....but i like it! And im keeping it! Hoping the DEX Dock turns out to be something worth buying/using!
