    "a gem...Is good...I love this phone it's currently what I've right now but I never saw it at this price at Best Buy does price is unbelievably low as for the phone this phone is unbelievably awesome I love it as my favorite phone that I've ever had it works great it's super super fast I would definitely take this over an iPhone any day I love this phone and I never saw it at this low price at Best Buy I would definitely buy it again at this price...I bought this one for my Wife, but I didn't enjoy it as an iPhone user, the build feels cheap and the haptic response of vibration is very poor, so yeah it is a good average phone, but not something extra ordinary to throw your money at, I was going to buy a phone for my Wife anyways but then I saw $200 off here and bought this one."

    "Love it...Love ir...This phone was for me and I love it.My wife was not impressed with hers.Camera was a huge upgrade from the s5 I had.Professional quality to me and easy to use.the phone has a perfect picture,Has to set phone sound under advanced to get rid of high pitch ,but I was able to change it,so complaints really.Dont worry about the color because I think any case will cover it...I bought my Samsung Galaxy S8 on 1/13 and there is a sale going on for the phone from $756 to $606 ($150 savings) and did not know there was a restocking and reactivation fee and thought the $150 could just be deducted from the cost of the phone and not go through all the hassle."

    "WOW ~...A plus...I upgraded from a Note 2 to a Samsung 8+; the decision was a difficult one to make since most of my family have iPhones . . . I live in a house divided - 3 iPhones; 3 Samsungs - 1 Samsung by default due to a broken iPhone with no funds available to purchase a new one....I love the new big curved screen, it almost makes the things your looking at pop off the screen it's like having a 3D effect they have depth that the S7 never had, getting used to not having a home button, probably better in the long run not having a mechanical button to break, got a UAG case to prevent damage to the big beautiful screen on my S8+."
