User opinions and reviews

  • DW

Batteries aren't that expensive, especially on ebay. I no longer have to recharge a few times a day.

  • Vick

My s8+ is almost 4 years old and still works like a beauty. The only problem is the battery life. Have to charge it twice a day to make it last.

  • anonym ajah

how they can calculate the screen to body ratio? don't tell me the ratio is active display area compare to front body, coz active display area of this phone is at the side body, so they must calculating include the side body.
