"The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the most powerful phones we've ever tested, and anyone who doesn't buy a Samsung because of the user interface is living in past." - TechRadar in Samsung Galaxy S8 Review.
SGS8 sure has it's flaws, nobody is arguing on that issue. But no doubt, it is one of the top feature rich, as well as one of the best looking phones out there. With time Android phones gets slow, we all know that, iPhone doesn't - even that's true (but iPhone slows down with updates). But you don't judge something for things yet to happen.
I have a senior alumni who was a fan of iPhones. He started from iP3G, later bought iP4s, then iP5. Last year he wanted to buy iP6 or iP7, whichever he could manage. I asked him to try out the older SGN5 (SGN7 was out then) with the promise that if he didn't like it, I would buy it from him with full amount that he bought, even if the phone had scratches or any other problems. Long story short, I offered him iP7 for his SGN5 last night, he declined with a devilish grin. That is how I can tell you how Samsung is better than other phones. The reason Samsung is doing so well despite of being slow is because it's so feature rich. Well, there are people who don't like such feature rich phones. Even for them there are Google Pixel and Motorola phones. But as for me, I love different features that separates me from the crowd. Someone below commented me something like "Go and buy this phone if you are so in love with it". Well, in Bangladesh it is almost 950USD in pre-order (along with the DeX though) and I have already pre-ordered my SGS8 which I hope to have in my hand by the second week of coming May.
I understand that not everybody wants to customize their phones, so not all phones are good for them. If I don't do customization at all, what is the use of using Android even? But that doesn't (and shouldn't) mean that iOS is bad. I don't understand why iOS fans hit on Android fans and vice-versa? Why can't it be like "Yes, the phone you're talking about is good, but it's not my type" or "Good phone, but need to improve on this and that." Why is it always trying to bash others? No matter how much nonsense you speak or write here, to me SGS8 is the best phone around right now. But that's for me and me only. It's MY opinion. Why can't you guys take that as a USER OPINION and continue a friendly relationship in the forum?
I hope other phone users who come here and read the comments will be sober enough to not to start a fight or argue. Please, not everything is for everybody. That said, lemme end my comment here. Take care. Ciao...
Anjum, 18 Apr 2017The size of s8 is very large it should be maximum 5.5The size of the S8 is almost identical to the size of the S7 (with S8 being a little bit taller but little bit slimmer than the S7) despite having a larger screen (5.8" on the S8 vs 5.1" on the S7). That is all because of S8's infinity display and the elimination of the physical home button.
Dearest fact-writing enthusiasts.Hopefully this fact be released and published!!According to the news,in the US,China,and south Korea,they use 128 gigs ROM and 6 gigs RAM!!I just want to know if their color of their blood are different from the rest of the world which in S8 and S8+ their share is 64 ROM and 4 ROM!!!Thanks uncle Samsung if it answers!!!?The most important:Price of S8 and S8 + respectively with better superior qualities in 3 mentioned countries are $750 and $850,while in many places worldwide,prices are $2000 to $2200 !!!?It is a logical question and I expect fact-writing fact-following gsmArena to prove its neutralitypublishes and rreleases the issues!!!Justice Rights.Omid12Omidvar.is looking for the logical answers....

Joselius, 18 Apr 2017Nothing weird about a samsung lover commenting on S8 page. You are the weird one being here if... moreYo man, come'n. He's totally unsatisfied with his performance, err, I mean, his phone's performance. That's why he's running into other pages, looking for better phones than his one and using foul language to them who simply loves their phones. FYI, not everything you love, you have to make love to it, for example, your mother. Or should we think otherwise for him? It's a question that's burning in my head now. Ciao...

Oh really then maybe we are blind that what apple rumoured for iphone 8/7s/X whatever called is already present in s8 which is bezeless screen on front and dont tell me that apple introduced edge display and if apple will adopt these this time then you guys will say that wow apple has edge display!! And bezeless too.....
Open your eyes every company somewhat takes ideas from others and implement on it so apple samsung wars will never come to an end Apple will be Apple but on the other hand Samsung will be Samsung end of story for who are saying that same old camera unit but do you know it it upgraded sensor with same resolution
Depressed Individual, 17 Apr 2017Drop this phone 5 feet high and think again.Sorry to disappoint you, been there, done that. Check the YouTuber "EverythingApplePro" and his video where he had to drop the phone from 25ft to kill it finally. LOL. Ciao...
lawa, 18 Apr 2017ya the other specs are already ok, but suddenly the camera only 12 mp??
WTH??The 12MP camera from last year's SGS7, SGS7e & SGN7 were one of the best (if not the best) mobile phone cameras around. After the last year's problem with SGN7, the company faced huge loss. People were looking forward for the Note 7, but had to choose a different device instead. And in the phone market, it's not unlikely to move away from one company to another. So Samsung faced a huge loss there.
This year, the release of SGS8 & SGS8+ was huge for Samsung. If they make any mistake, they will be gone from the number one position. So they are playing very careful. If you have followed the tech world for the last three months, you will know that Samsung has promoted on how they are checking the battery on eight levels to avoid any mishaps. This is to build trust among the users. That is why Samsung wanted to create a full screen phone, a phone that was supposed to be marketed a few years later. But to make that happen they needed to make sure that the camera is not worse than last year. We all know that SGS7 & SGS7e had one of the best cameras of last year. So they changed the module, but kept the resolution same (so that the algorithm behind the sensor can be the same, at least) and worked on the software (but not much). They just made sure that the low-light performance is at least a bit better from last year, which they did ensure (somewhat). That's why SGS7 & SGS8 has the camera of the same resolution, but NOT the same units.
On a side note, Samsung wanted to make the All-Screen phone later, not this year. But to pull the consumers toward them, they had to move forth with the idea sooner than they expected. That is why Synaptics didn't get the chance to finish the work on the Screen Fingerprint Scanner and Samsung had to put the Fingerprint Scanner somewhere. The front of the phone had no place and the back of the phone has battery on the middle. My best guess is that SGS8 was supposed to have a dual sensor camera and they had the place freed up for the Fingerprint Scanner (don't judge me for the guess, it might be wrong). But whatever the problem was, the scanner ended up in an awkward place, no doubt.
And if the rumors are true, the SGN8 will have the Iris scanner, as well as the Fingerprint Scanner embedded under the screen, as well as the dual camera. Well, that's the future to tell, right? Ciao...
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2017Ugliest phone of 2017 OmG...... Still no stereo speakers and the battery got even smaller for ... moreWell, if you're happy (read jealous), we're happy. For your info, after the last incident with Note 7, Samsung became cautious, which is a very good move for such a big company. If you would know even something about tech, you would know that the "same 12MP camera" is actually "NOT THE SAME 12MP camera", rather an upgrade on the sensor, keeping the same resolution. The camera process is also upgraded. I don't want to go into detail for someone who pretends to be sleeping. If you wanna know, why don't you go ahead and do some homework on the new camera unit? But the bottom line is that it is NOT the same camera module like last year. Everyone knows why Samsung put the Fingerprint sensor in that odd place, you should also. And if Iris scanner is a gimmick, well, I have nothing else to say then. I guess next you'll say a headphone jack is also a gimmick, right? LOL. And people are freaking out that SGS8 is more expensive than some SPEC-iAL phone out in the market.
I agree with you, totally agree. The phone is ugly, pure ugly. Actually, it's the ugliest phone around in the market. No, the ugliest of any phone EVER MADE and WILL BE MADE. But only to those who are jealous. Be jealous, cause the headphone jack is NOT coming back to you. Be jealous that Samsung don't go with the "Same old design" year after year. Be jealous for not being able to customize like a Galaxy device. Well, you can take the speed and put it anywhere you want. Being a few microseconds slower never killed anyone and neither will it in the future. So keep being jealous, it really put that grin in my face. Ciao...
Ugliest phone of 2017 OmG...... Still no stereo speakers and the battery got even smaller for a 5.8"? Same 12 mp camera and measely 8 mp front?, ugly finger print sensor location?, and they keep adverrising the "Gimmick" Iris or more like Face Unlock?. and most of all overpriced $900 bucks for just being huger?.... Facepalm!!!
