I love this phone!
I'm very happy I took the leap and bought the Samsung Galaxy S8! I had wanted the S8+, but now that I have the S8 I'm very happy with it.
The screen is 5.8", which is big enough, but there are no bezels so the actual size of the overall phone is not huge. Makes it easier to put in my pocket and hold in one hand while typing.
And as far as the 64 GB of storage, I'm not worried about it because it has an expandable SD card slot, so I can expand my storage another 256 GB!
I was excited about the fingerprint scanner, but I actually use the bio-metric iris scanner. Once registered, all I have to do is look at the phone and it unlocks, and yes, it works every time and is super fast. It doesn't matter if it is sunny, or in my room at night in the dark, it works!
Touch Wiz has been updated to something called "Samsung Experience" which is nice. The S8 updated itself right out of the box. Running Android 7.0 Nougat which is nice! The headphones that come with the phone seem very premium.
I can't say enough about the rear camera. I also owned a phone with dual 13 mp rear facing cameras, that can't take a picture anywhere near as beautiful as the S8. The sensors and software that Samsung uses for their cameras' can't be beat!
The super AMOLED display has ruined me for life. It is so beautiful!
Fast charge is nice, but the my only gripe is the battery life. With very heavy use, I get about 6 hours with 15% left. If I'm having a busy day, and not on my phone constantly, it will get me from 8 am to 10 pm with 10-15% battery left.
The glass back is beautiful, and so are the curved bezel-less edges, which makes the phone slippery, and fair warning, they crack and break very easily. I personally purchased a Rhino Shield bumper guard. You can still appreciate the beauty of the phone, it is barely noticeable, with military grade protection.
Rest assured, it is worth every penny!Read full review
