A ‘fundamentally flawed’ look at the future

Samsung Galaxy S8+

from iPhone Hacks

The Galaxy S8+ is certainly a stunning piece of smartphone design. It’s fundamentally flawed, of course – the mass of fragile glass that needs protecting, the fixed-use Bixby button, the awkward biometrics – but it’s going to be very influential going forwards. Not just for other manufacturers to copy, but also for Samsung’s own Galaxy S9 in 2018, which is sure to be faster again, have fully working voice control and a fingerprint sensor underneath the main display. That will be a sure fire recommendation, but it’s harder to be so definite with this year&... Full review

The most gorgeously designed smartphone you can buy today

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Gadget Review
With the Galaxy S8, we’d say that Samsung solidly succeeded to deliver a knockout device that overshadows the tremendous misfortune of the Note 7. Since the introduction of this metal and glass construction on the Galaxy S6, each iteration has inched closer to a perfected design, and the Galaxy S8 has taken the biggest step thus far...

Amazing flagship features

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)

from LaptopMedia

Galaxy A5 (2017) is a model that slightly exceeds the mid range but this is completely explicable. The smartphone impressed us in the first place with its design which closely resembles that of the flagship Galaxy S lineup. However, the other features are also at the desired high level. A Super AMOLED Full HD display is available and it includes a number of useful modes and features. In fact, Galaxy A5 (2017) is packed with a lot of useful software features so you can often use them. The battery life is also impressive with a capacity of 3000mAh but it definitely performed amazingly in our... Full review

Positive overall experience

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

from Android Guys
Now that it has been a full year, it’s much easier to look at the S7 Edge in its entirety. Good and bad experiences can be summed up to an overall impression quite easily. I have strangers ask me about my phone all the time, which means it’s a unique and intriguing device, at the least. I always reply by telling people that I really love the S7 Edge but do not love the cost of the device... Full review

King of the hill

Samsung Galaxy S8+

from Android Community
Samsung ticks all the right boxes when it comes to the hardware, but that's just one part of the story. The Galaxy S8+ is so much more than its spec sheet — it is a culmination of a grander design that cements Samsung's position as the frontrunner in this space. With the Galaxy S8+, you're getting a phone with a stunning design, a gorgeous AMOLED display that may just be one of the best ever put on a phone, class-leading camera, and top-notch internals. From the gorgeous design to the build quality and execution, Samsung got everything right with the Galaxy S8+... Full review

High photo potential

Samsung Galaxy S8

from DxOMark

It’s one of the best devices we’ve tested for autofocus, with smooth, fast ,and accurate performance in all lighting conditions. Shooting outdoors, white balance is very good, recording virtually no colorcasts or errors during our tests. The Samsung Galaxy S8 also records very low levels of noise in almost all lighting conditions, which should be appealing to photographers looking to record portraits with smooth skin tones. The Samsung Galaxy S8’s main weakness for stills is linked to its low noise, however, as its pictures have lower levels of sharpness compared to those... Full review

A well-built phone that lives or dies by Samsung Pay

Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)

from tech2
The A5 is not a bad phone, but it’s not the best by any means. It’s well-built, but not exceptionally so. It has a good camera, but it’s definitely not the best option around. It’s also limited to Android 6.0 for now. In the end, I think this phone lives or dies by Samsung Pay. If you want Samsung Pay, this is the phone for you. If not, there are far better alternatives to be had... Full review

To infinity and beyond

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Pocketnow
There is a lot of good to be said about the “New Galaxy,” as everyone calls it. Those of you that were left nostalgic by the beauty of the Note 7 will be happy to see even more beauty shown off here. There is a lot of genius being placed on this design… So much so that I highly suggest that you go to a store and hold one to fully understand what I mean... Full review

Class leading design, but software is still a problem

Samsung Galaxy S8+

from Forbes
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will change the smartphone market forever. No longer will huge, useless bezels and proportionally small displays be acceptable on premium models. Whether you buy either phone or not, you can thank Samsung that what you do buy in future will be significantly better because of this... Full review

A mobile masterpiece

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Pocket-lint
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 and will only get better with HDR-compatible apps... Full review
I have had mine for about 6 months and the screen has already gone out.  I have resisted getting a touch phone for a long time after the last one I had went out in three months.  As I need this phone for work this is a big disappointment.

***Is Samsung Bankrupt?*** After the Note 7 disaster and replacement phones, customers are left on the hook for any future issues. Warranties do not transfer over to replacement phones... After speaking with a high-level Samsung Executive the only solution is to take your phone for a 10-day diagnostic, leaving you with nothing. When asked about a loaner phone for the customers that have been through all the headaches of Note 7 Samsung Executive hides behind policies saying "It is Samsungs policy not to give loaner phones" when asked to see the policy on exploding cell phones there was no comment. Which leads me to ask did the flagship Note 7 sink Samsung???

The phone lacks sufficient space for anything. The screen is terrible unless the brightness is high. It is a totally fragile phone without a good case.

Bought Convoy 4 three months ago. It would go in and out of service when I was sitting in the house. The wallpaper would change on its own. It would lose my pictures and videos. If you take the batter or sim card out and put it back in the pix returned, but this happened every day. The time shown when you first opened the phone was the time that you previously opened the phone, not the current time. I took the phone back to the store and they sent for a replacement. I have had the replacement for 4 days. It doesn't go in and out of service but it has all the other problems and a few more. After transferring contacts, I had several listed as unknown. All my frequently called numbers were not transferred. I input the missing numbers, but when I get texts from those people it states unknown. When I open the phone it doesn't show the main screen, but some nuance screen with a voice. Then it goes to a menu until I press ok before the main screen comes on. I have tried to change this, but nothing seems to work. When I get a text it reads it to me. I don't want a talking phone in public. How do I turn it off? I am going back to the phone store tomorrow.

I dropped it after a week

Samsung Galaxy J5

I have had a Sansumg Galaxy Ace for years dropped it loads of times without problem, it was built like a tank. The Sansumg J5 is very plasticy, it slipped out of my hands, it was not a heavy fall it did not even mark the phone, now the screen is blank despite trying to reset it.
