Samsung Galaxy S8 review


Samsung's Galaxy S8 is mesmerizingly close to perfection with its fantastic display, useful interface, and eye-catching design.

Gorgeous display ; Excellent build quality, design ; Useful software features and options ; TouchWiz is a lot prettier ; Water-resistant

Bixby is hardly useful ; Poor speaker placement ; $100 more expensive than S7

The Galaxy S8, in both its sizes, is an excellent smartphone with great build quality, a fantastic screen, solid cameras, and standard daylong-battery life. The Bixby voice assistant is underwhelming, but you can turn it off and opt for Google...

Samsung Galaxy S8


Phones have become a little stale. Whether it's an iPhone 7, Huawei P10, Sony Xperia XZ Premium or any other flagship phone, they all look and feel the same. But just when I thought a phone couldn't surprise and delight me any more, the Samsung Galaxy...

Galaxy S8 review: a year on and Samsung's outgoing flagship remains a technical marvel


With the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S9, is last year's flagship now the biggest steal on the smartphone market? Read our review to find out...

Brilliant display ; Blazing fast performance ; Bluetooth 5 and dual audio

Rear fingerprint reader placement ; Face recognition hit and miss ; Bixby needs to differentiate

Galaxy S8 one month later: Still pretty freaking awesome


But we're still waiting on the Siri-like AI.

The best-looking phone around crushes it in performance, battery life, water-resistance and wireless charging. An external storage slot lets you keep more photos, videos and music.

Its awkwardly placed fingerprint reader leads to camera smears and longer unlock times, which is aggravating when you use it to unlock your phone dozens of times a day.

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.

Samsung Galaxy S8 review


This beautiful smartphone marks a return to form for Samsung

Stunning build and design ; Large, bright screen ; Snappy performance ; Great camera

Full Bixby not yet available ; Fingerprint scanner poorly positioned ; Colour palette could be better ; Sound could be more transparent

The world’s most beautiful smartphone is also one of the best. The S8 is Samsung’s comeback king

Samsung Galaxy S8


The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a gorgeous big-screen phone with a comfortable single-handed feel, and it's packed with top-notch components and promising new software.

Hand-friendly design. Gorgeous screen. Best processor and modem available.

Awkward fingerprint scanner placement. Average battery life.

Phones are connected devices. That's also what they do: connect us, to each other and to the internet. We create things, whether they're words or pictures, and we share them. The Galaxy S8 is the best phone available for creating things you want to...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review


UPDATE: Samsung's best phone to date is also the most stunning phone we've ever clapped eyes on - and it's now available in two new colours

It’s the most beautiful smartphone ever ; Ridiculous power, put to good use with DeX ; The camera is amazing, as always

Bixby’s full talents not available at launch ; Not all apps are optimised for its 18.5:9 aspect ratio ; That fingerprint sensor position is not great at all

The S8 is close to perfect, from its gorgeous, slim bezel design to its superb camera

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: A mobile masterpiece


What we have here is the best Android phone of 2017. It's a masterpiece; one with a few brush-strokes out of place, but a masterpiece nonetheless.

The most eye-catching phone design you can buy today ; Great-looking 18.5:1 aspect ratio AMOLED screen is ideal for entertainment (even more so when HDR comes into play) ; Best Samsung software experience to date ; Decent battery life and optimisations...

Fingerprint scanner is poorly placed ; Iris and face recognition logins have limited success ; Bixby button initially useless ; Connectivity can cause issues with perfect playback/graphical functions ; Some features hidden in menus ; Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the flagship to rule all flagships. From a design perspective it's an unbridled head-turner, delivering design that's a step above any of the competition out there. The 18.5:1 screen ratio is central to a focus on entertainment...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review


Biometric issues aside, the Galaxy S8 is a brilliant phone

Amazing, large display ; Huge power ; Great camera

Irritating biometric unlocking ; Very expensive at launch ; Bixby pointless

The large, bezel-less display is truly iconic and beautiful, and the screen quality excellent. The fingerprint scanner being placed on the back is a poor decision from Samsung, as well as the iris scanner / facial recognition not working well enough to...

Samsung Galaxy S8 Smartphone Review


Smaller and fine-spun. Samsung's successor of the successful Galaxy S7 immediately catches the eye with its new design language: narrower edges and more screen. The Galaxy S8 is also a slightly more balanced product than its sister model, and its price...

excellent screen ; stylish design ; fast SoC ; very good GPS qualities ; fast Wi-Fi ; Gigabit LTE ; decent call quality ; solid sensor configuration ; USB 3.1 with DP, HDMI, and OTG ; good battery life ; quick-charge and wireless charging ; water and...

...though not much better than in the predecessor ; no dual-SIM ; fingerprint scanner hard to find via touch ; SoC throttling during permanent load ; warranty does not cover damage due to liquids

With its Galaxy S8, Samsung has created a superb product that scores even a bit better than its larger Galaxy S8+ sister model. This was different in the S7 lineup, but the Plus model cannot take advantage of its larger battery and is also heavier....
