Galaxy S8

Samsung-Galaxy-S8-1

 Apart from the irritating performance of the biometrics and the high price, the Galaxy S8 is a phone that offers an exceptional experience for any user. The large screen is a real turning point in flagship phone design and should usher in the end of large bezels, and the camera and slick performance work brilliantly under the finger. It commands a premium price, but make no mistake: this is a truly premium phone.

For

  • Amazing, large display
  • Huge power
  • Great camera

Against

  • Irritating biometric unlocking
  • Very expensive at launch
  • Bixby pointless

The Samsung Galaxy is a phone that’s unlike anything you’ll have seen on the market. It’s just stunning.

It’s incredibly expensive in a world where mid-range phones are more than good enough to handle most tasks people like… but the second you pick it up it’s easy to see why.

The screen is just brilliant – the clearest, sharpest and offers lovely color reproduction to make movie watching a dream, and that’s before you’ve even got to the fact it’s wrapped into the chassis so hugely that it has a screen larger than the iPhone 7 Plus in a chassis that feels more like the iPhone 7.

The Galaxy S8 isn’t perfect – in the search to squeeze the screen in so completely, other factors were overlooked: namely, the placement of the fingerprint reader. If you want this phone, you’ll need to answer this question: are you OK using an iris scanner?

And if you’re looking for something even bigger, and with a much-improved battery life to boot, then the Galaxy S8 Plus is easily the way to go – check out our review of that to see if that’s the phone for you.
