Samsung Galaxy S8 reviews

Galaxy S8 SM-G950U 64GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Midnight Black) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 113.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the phone, but Verizon may lie to you. I'm giving the phone 5 stars, and that says it all about the phone. However I give Verizon NO stars. The rep repeatedly lied to me, citing various untrue reasons the phone would not work on their network. After first declaring that this S8 does not support CDMA, I told him that's not true, that it DOES support CDMA. Then he tried to tell me that Verizon uses a proprietary version of CDMA. Then came a couple more lame Bottom line... they refused to provide or sell me a nano SIM and refused to try to activate the phone. I took the micro SIM out of my old Note II, and following instructions that are easy to find on the web, I trimmed it with a pair of scissors to fit in the nano SIM slot. Viola! The phone they tried to convince me was not compatible with Verizon, works perfectly. I have not found anything that doesn't work, including attaching photos to text messages or emails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone I love this phone! It's perfect for me in every way. The photos it takes are stunning! The size is perfect. The infinity screen is beautiful. I never use the Bixby function, but it is nice to have. I love that it's water resistant. The battery life is the biggest surprise for me because I don't have to charge my phone twice a day anymore, and when I do charge it, it charges so fast. My only cons are the fingerprint detector is in an awkward spot. I have tiny hands and fingers, and even with my popsocket on my phone, I have to stretch my finger to reach the sensor. The other con is the speaker isn't as loud as I'd like it to be. Other than those 2 things, I am absolutely crazy for this dang phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best phone ever. I love phones. I have purchased many smartphones and tried. This S8 is THE BEST phone I have ever owned so far. Better than iphone 8, better than OnePlus 5, better than any phones in the market. I love the display. Bright, smooth, and easy to type. The battery life is good. All the features are very useful....but among all, the best is "Camera". Oh my.. this default camera has so many features and you do not need any third-party camera apps at all!!! The camera resolution is great and auto focus is amazing. I can go on so many pros, but so far none for cons. The best phone ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone I bought this to replace a MotoX Pure Edition that was destroyed when I slipped on some ice. This unit has a beautiful screen that really shows pictures well. It is a great size that fits in my hand and my pocket perfectly. Lots of memory with an expansion port to store my pictures and my tunes. Controls are intuitive. I had noticed some comments that the fingerprint reader on the back is in an awkjward spot. I do not find thgat at all. When I pick up the phone the reader is in the right spot. Having had an iPhone for many years as well as the MotoX, comparing the three units I can truthfully say this is the best alternative. I am very happy with this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitley worth it! I was really debating whether to buy this phone, get a Pixel or the latest I-phone. However, this phone is AMAZING! The camera is indeed Amazing! The processor runs insanely smooth (I don't have millions of apps). Probably my favorite feature is the "Performance Mode". It definitely helps our for the Task at hand! The video quality is just AMAZING! The speaker in the bottom right of the phone isn't that amazing, but it still gives quality sound! If you do get this phone, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT! Get the 128GB or 256GB! TOTALLY worth having that much space if needed! I don't use BIXBY, but hopefully they make her justice in the future. Thank You Samsung! Hopefully this phone last me at least 3 years til your new phone comes out or I'm able to afford one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and sleek Using on T-Mobile. Much better reception and significantly faster than my old Moto X. I'm on my phone throughout the day and frequently checking email, and the battery time has been much better than expected. For my personal preference, I actually feel the phone is too thin, as I like a little grip to my phone. The slippery glass front and back doesn't help, and I can see where the reports indicate these Samsung phones are easily broken, relative to other phones. I have solved both by adding the Urban Armor Gear Monarch Case. I also like this is the only phone that supports T-Mobile's new LTE-U network.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone I've ever owned. This phone has everything I would want on a smartphone amazing performance, a good camera, a beautiful display, and a large display. The only thing which could be improved is the battery capacity, I am a heavy phone user and watch many videos and play games at the phone's highest resolution and with the brightness closer to three brightest setting and cam drain the battery quickly, but I don't mind that much since the charging speed is very quick with 1hr and 55 min to charge it from basically nothing to 100%. If you are an individual who is not a hearty user but are a light phone user it can possibly last 2 days or more. I love this phone and would recommend it to anyone.
