I'm an I phone convert. Changed to galaxy alpha 2 years ago. Brilliant phone and lasted the whole 2 years with like 1 minor fault in the end. Got my s8 yesterday. 1st impressions seriously impressed. It's such a good phone for the 1st time ever I will be treating it to a case. Rite ppl you want an honest review? The phone is s*it hot. Technically it is amazing yet it's a phone that is super advanced yet delivers all the basic features without complication. If you are due an upgrade it's a no brained u take the s8. For a 2 year contract u want a phone to be happy with. It will.cost more but again for 2 years it's worth having something decent. Hope this helps.

It is like this for me Samsung galaxy S8 is formula 1 of smart phones!
No offense to haters but this phone is best ever i was shivering when baying it seriously because i did my research and new what cool things are in store with this phone!
In general Samsung is my favorite when baying but this phone blown me away honestly, graphics,for you security there are fingerprints and eye scanner,so beautiful design of it and not to mention,incredibly realistic pictures when you take them,for gamer as i am dream come true! i mean i have pretty good computer but this phone i dear to say is better!
Again have to be honest it has been a while since i bought the phone and i am kinda out of it and now need to learn again but i swear it is worth it!

Why should I believe you? What is your degree of expertise?
The Exynos version of this device is at least 30% weaker than the Snapdragon version in terms of graphics put on top of that the low storage for the price and you got yourself a typical Samsung device.
Received 420 + mb Software Update in UK today, for my factory unlocked S8 Plus.
Includes ability to hide navigation bar.

So watching 16:9 videos u will get black bars on the left and right as the ratio is ultra wide screen vs the normal widescreen. But u do have a toggle to make it fullscreen. So u lose come image real estate on top n bottom when full screen but just a bit as the image is stretched out. Future content is going ultra wide screen 18 or 18.5 so this is why samsung is doing this. But holding it in one hand and texting is absolutely fine even for the s8+. Even iphone 8 n next lg is following this ratio so it looks to be a trend. U will know if its a phone from 2017 onwards by the tall screen lol

if you're living in a community which use IOS, you may want to consider using ip7 as its integration between each other within the same environment is great.
if you're type of person who like to customize your phone easily, then go for S8 or any other android phones.

Failed Design, if you ask me. The fact that it has a borderless screen means that the overlapping screen on the edges will often be the point of impact if it falls to the ground - and that obviously makes the phones very susceptible for broken screens....
Samsung released a statement that they strongly advise to use a protective cover for the S8+... so, yeah, what's the advantage of an extremely nice-looking design if you have to constantly hide it under a protective cover, because it's simply to unstable...
