It will compete with the one plus 5 the newer version of one plus 3T. Both are good sets but samsung galaxy s8 definitely has a edge.
Eddie Enzenzo Jr., 22 May 2017This phone is the best phone so far No matter how you support Samsung it cannot even perform like one plus3t. I was a big fan of Samsung and have tried almost all brands but I cannot recommend anyone for any kind of Samsung brands. Useless brand ever available in market
ccychin, 22 May 2017haha stop bull shitting me no need to move my ass.... i am pretty sure the battery life is not... moreTo CCYCHIN:
I know someone with a Note 5 with serious battery problems. Even regular (not VOIP) telephone calls runs down the battery drastically...which surprised me because GSM calls barely uses any power especially if the signal reception is excellent. I didn't know Note 5 was plagued with battery issues until I read your comment.
I am very content with my S5 and see no need to upgrade. After 2 years 7 months, using the original battery that came with the phone, I am still able to get 5 hours on screen time. Browsing on Wi-Fi depletes a percent from my battery every five 5-7 minutes depending on what I'm doing. If the default browser is the only app open and I'm browsing Facebook I can get up to 10 minutes (possibly even 12) using Wi-Fi before the battery loses a percent. I don't know if I'm one of the lucky persons or the S5 battery is simply exceptional to still deliver good performance after nearly 3 years.
Charging is pretty much the same as it was from day one which indicates the battery is healthy. It takes 1hr. 55mins. to charge it from 0-100%, 1hr 15min. to charge it from 50-100% and a fully depleted battery reaches 85% of charge after 1 hour (it use to be 71% with Lollipop then jumped to 85% after upgrading the OS to Marshmallow).
Another thing to note is that my S5 doesn't get hot when charging. A tad bit warm but nowhere near hot like what I hear about other S5 and other Samsung models. For the record I have the G900H which is the Exynos version so maybe that makes a difference where heat is concerned. Does the S8 Exynos or Snapdragon version gets hot while charging?
Can somebody please try those three charging methods with their S8 and tell me the difference in charging times compared to the S5. How long does it take to charge the S8 from 0-100%, 50-100% and how much charge does a fully depleted S8 battery reaches after 1 hour of charging. I do like the S8 and may end up getting it one of these fine days.
Gixxer, 22 May 2017Wow 5 days. Is it powered by 5000mah battery It can even last longer than a month if you don't even use them, LOL!! What a Lie!!
ccychin, 22 May 2017hahaaha..... stop protecting ur phone brand..... what u do iii read is just normal for every ... moreBut somehow s8 has a better lasting battery than iphone look at the videos on drain battery on youtube and also iphone charges for 3 hours compared to 1.5 hours on s8. So no iphone is outdated and overpriced and everything you say is a lie.
Stunning look, amazing display, large screen, comfortable to use in one hand, clear and loud in call volume, fast performane. An amazing phone made by Samsung. Very happy.
ccychin, 22 May 2017haha stop bull shitting me no need to move my ass.... i am pretty sure the battery life is not... moreI have the phone for a month now and I know the battery, and you just are reading some rumors. good luck with them. the phone lasted 5 days with one charge last week with me.
[deleted post]Agree with everything said here.
The irony is I just got a space gray 32gb iPhone SE for $200 at Best Buy. It actually works better for me than my Note 3 and S7 edge. It still is nowhere near my favs compared to my LG phones and Pixel. Other than the small screen which causes more mistakes at typing, it is quite nice to hold and use. Solid 4th stringer among my 11.

Samsung didn't post my review I bought s8 on 6may 2017 but I have a problem with battery its didn't last even a day on normal use. I went to authorize Samsung dealer but they didn't even want to hear the problem nor replace it. What to do ?
Omar-Os, 19 May 2017Looks like you don't know anything about the CPUs and how they affects the battery life.haha stop bull shitting me no need to move my ass.... i am pretty sure the battery life is notoriously bad as galaxy note 5 with 3000mah and 5.7 QHD screen.... (well known prob).... also read comment that some charge it twice a day with heavy usage.... sad... the phone battery is destroying in a year ..... lolllll
I had an issue with sound turning off itself randomly, week after i bought it. Domestic retail customer support in Croatia "Agram servis", official Samsung retailer, didnt replace the device like others do when it is an error in whole series of devices. Instead, i waited repairs for more then a week. This is the last time i bought Samsung flagship.
Anonymous, 21 May 2017S8's wireless charging based on Qualcomm quick charge 2.0 Consequently, it is reportedly slow... moreBut they don't have wireless charging, only Samsung is serious about this future technology
munez, 21 May 2017samsung is better than iphone....i live a proof of that Jes is true im a fan and f iphon but samsung is beter
