The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same knowledge engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 7.0 Nougat adds major productivity capabilities to the operating system in the form of a multi-window view, which allows for two apps to be placed onscreen at a time. An improved notification system allows you to interact with texts and emails right from your notification pane - without needing to open the app. Other features include file-based encryption, a Data Saver mode, the ability to scale text and icons to better suit your phone's screen, and more.

Samsung Galaxy S8 reviews

Galaxy S8 Duos SM-G950FD 64GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Midnight Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well Built but Some Issues Made Me Return It. Although Samsung did an excellent job making the S8 with dual SIM cards there are two issues which forced me to return it. First, the S8 does not allow Wi-Fi Calling on the T-Mobile network. The option just does not appear�in the menu on the dual SIM version. Others have reported the same issue.� Secondly, the single SIM version allows one to make two apps for the same app, e.g. WhatsApp for two separate accounts.� For some reason, the dual SIM version does not allow that too.� One must use a program such as Parallels to produce a second app.� So, for these reasons, I will sadly return this phone and continue my search.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality I've been using the phone for about 3 months. I have used it in Japan (on a Docomo MVNO) and on T-Mobile in the US. Very good connectivity in both cases. Samsung's additions to Android are more useful than I had thought. I especially like the edge panel feature (easy access to apps, etc.), Knox secure folder (password-secured apps), and some Samsung-made apps e.g. the Reminder app (you can have it remind you to do things at certain times or at certain places). Bixby is hit or miss. But I do think it's neat that you can program it to do multiple things with one voice command. The design of the screen is the best I've ever seen. The phone's build quality makes it feel like it will last a while. And hopefully it will last as long as my SII, which still works... The included earphones are surprisingly good. I'm not an audiophile, so these are just some of my regular person comments: the sound quality made me hear an instrument in one song that I'd never realized was there; also, concerning noise-blocking, I used them on the airplane to block out noise so I could sleep. One complaint is about updates. Android security updates could be faster (my phone is currently a couple months behind). (And we're still on Android 7.) Also, Samsung apps have to be updated in Samsung's own store, whereas other apps are updated in Google Play; this is a really poor experience. I wish they would create an update app that takes care multiple app stores. One more complaint is that it's very difficult for me to tell whether an icon in the Android pull-down tray is displaying its on or off color. Samsung's icons are too thin and lightly-colored. Another complaint is that Samsung removed the ability to make multiple Do Not Disturb rules. They took away one of my favorite Android features. The back glass plate is prone to scratches and could use a cover/case. The front glass is better and doesn't seem to get scratches or many finger smudges. All said, I really like the the S8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Great to Have 2 Phones in 1 I had a work phone and a personal phone, I was tired of having to carry both, it is a hasle, now it is very easy and it works great by having both SIMs active all the time. I use the personal mostly for Banking, the phone works great very fast and with 64gb it has a lot of storage, that allows me to use the double SIM and not the MicroSD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone I had to get the Duos version due to the need of a work phone and a personal phone, it is so practical to have both and not having to go to a cheapish Chinese phone with low specs. I was unsure to get the S8 or S8+ so far S8 seems like the right choice as it is very easy to use one handed and the longer display proves useful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would I recommend - Hell yes!! Glad that I bought this phone!! Works great with Chatr (former Mobilicity) in Canada. Shipped on time and delivered across the border without the incident and no surprise costs (thanks to Pre-Pay Duties & Tax).
