If any company needs a successful product release right now it's Samsung, after the disaster that was the Note 7. Thankfully the reviews of the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone seem to be overwhelmingly positive, with some reviewers describing the handset as the best phone that money can buy right now. That being said, at nearly £700 all this good stuff comes with a hefty price tag.
- GSM ArenaThe Galaxy S8+ is one gorgeous piece of tech with its Infinity display and no amount of black bars can take that away from it. Plus, it's not like having bezels in their place will do your videos any good...
The chipset is the fastest around, while the software is more polished than ever. And while the battery capacity hasn't been increased over the S7 edge, the endurance is improved when it comes to web browsing and video watching.
- StuffSamsung's latest is a gorgeous bit of portable tech, packed with cutting-edge performance and loads and loads of helpful, handy perks. The iPhone 7 is no slouch in terms of performance, app selection, and overall quality of use, but put these head to head and you get a lot more benefits with the Galaxy S8.
And maybe most pressingly, it feels new and exciting while the iPhone 7 sticks with the old and familiar, for the most part. The Galaxy S8 has top-of-the-line everything and turns heads in the process, while the iPhone 7 can't help but feel a little tired.
- AlphrWell, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is comfortably the best phone I’ve ever used. It’s fast, looks great, has a fantastic camera and has a screen that will do any photos captured justice.
There are a couple of missteps – the fingerprint scanner is in a silly place that will lead to many a smudged lens, and Bixby feels underdeveloped – but for the most part, this is a product from a company at the top of its game.
