poor excuse for a samsung

Reviewed on Friday September 1, 2017 by , Florida
Wife has the 7 i had a 5 for 3 years and both phones were great. The S8 is not the same in reliability.
Have had one for 4 months and None of the tech people know anything about the phone. My first one went back after 45 days, kept freezing up, losing data getting hot dropping calls etc. Last worked better, most of the time, but recently fell out of my pocket and with a otterbox cover the edge of the screen cracked. $359.00 to fix. 1/2 the price of the phone. KNew it was a bad design, should have bought the 7.

The worst phone ever made

Reviewed on Wednesday May 24, 2017 by , Colorado Mountains
I have had this real gem for 3 weeks. I have got over the fact that Samsung just beat me out of a bunch of money for what they call a top shelf phone. The battery life is less than one fourth what they boast about. I had to buy a car charger so I could use it a full day away from the home charger. The battery life is really that bad. I have a year old LG HBS750 blue tooth earbud head set I paired up to this s8 jewel. I can't clip the s8 to my belt or the music cuts out and skips as if the phone was 100 yards away. I need to put it in my shirt pocket 1 foot from the headset and it works fair, but nothing like my 3 year old LG with a bad battery. The phone has a weather app in it and the refresh indicator will not work no matter how many times you tap it. I have never been taken advantage of like I have been by buying this Samsung s8 piece of junk. I will buy a new iPhone 7 and use this Samsung junk as a target at the rifle range. I would never try to recover some of my money by selling it as a used phone on eBay. I just can't take advantage of anybody the way Samsung does!!! Please reconsider if you are thinking of buying the Samsung s8. It truly is a rip off. Learn from my mistake, don't buy this phone!!!

Stay away from curved edges

Reviewed on Thursday May 18, 2017 by , Lexington,KY
I am a big Samsung fan and will continue to purchase their products, however with the newest Galaxy phones (S8 & S8+), they only come with curved edges. I do not like the curved edges and have never owned one, however they are your only option if you want to purchase the newest Galaxy phone. I always purchase screen protectors, and with this particular phone, the screen protectors are terrible. They do not fully adhere to the entire screen leaving a bubble between the screen protector and your phone causing touch . Samsung should have made a flat screen as well as a curved screen for their newer phones just like they did for the S7 and S7+.

Disappointed

Big Samsung fan and I love the s8+ screen but it stops there. As someone who has to have security on the phone, The finger print on the back does not work when you are in a hurry to take a picture unless you want a blurry pic from finger print smudges. The face recognition is nice but doesn't work in low light. The iris works better in low light but takes to long. Worst of all as a person who uses a smart phone for everything from adjusting ac, watching business cameras and always have it at my side for something, it doesn't have IR. Now I have to go find a remote to turn the tv's from work to home. Very disappointed with phone. As a long time Samsung user I will be returning the phone and pay the stocking fee. I will go back to old s6 edge with IR.
