Samsung Galaxy S8 review: Essence distilled

21 April 2017
When 5 inches is the de-facto standard for a compact Android handset, yet you want to prove that more is always better, what do you do? If you're Samsung, you make a 5.8-inch phone that's as compact as a 5-incher.

Samsung s8 glass is so delicate it just slipped from my lap to the floor and the glass is broken and the distance is only one hand span, 49 rs tampered glass is much better than this Gorilla Tampered glass..

Many S8 phones have developed GPS faults! Could be due to the last update in June 19. GPS software is missing from latest updates which prevents satnav use with Google Maps and Waze etc

We had taken video thru S8 at USA. What a great picture quality! Never seen in any of the mobiles.

If Samsung supports S8 s8 plus for linux, it will continue to gain brand loyalty and keep buyers from defecting to Huawei. It will hereby confirm its future support for better software optimization, efficiency and utilisation compared to Huawei. Not all of us want to upgrade where happy with our s8 android 9 powerhouse.

I'm real happy with this phone! I've only had it a few days, but the camera is nice! The battery seems enough for the day and if not charges 15 minutes. I'm only using headphones, so I'm really not using the speakers, but if I needed to, there pretty good. This phone is loaded with features! Great security and very easy prompts to understand. The screen is perfect, for me, because I'm getting older now and like the bold print and bigger screen. The features you get with this phone, will take about two weeks to learn all of them, there's a lot! I can really customize this phone to me. I love this phone!

I’m still wondering which phone is the best either the S8 or the A8+. Tbh I like the S8 picture quality however I don’t like the fact that the battery is gone so quickly. On the other hand, the A8+ is okay with the price and has more megapixels , 2 front cameras but as I just saw at a video, is true that the quality of the pictures tend to be warm and about the battery, it lasts longer. In both cases, I really don’t know which one to buy

I have been using s8 for last 6 months. infact its my 30 th mobile for in a period of about 10 years.

What i liked ?
1. The best camera. Manual mode is awesome .Low light photography is very much possible.Bouquet effect wont come perfect always. There is focus issue most times.
2. Display is d best. 570 ppi is the worlds best display ever
3. Audio is fine.

What i hated?
1. 3000 mah Battery lasts only half day. Have to charge twice a day if wifi/4G connected.
2. No stereo speakers available.

Suggestion : If ur buying this make sure you have a secondary phone for calling purpose. Else that too will drain its battery
