Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Note 7 On Steroids (Without the S-Pen) I’m one of those unfortunate folks who purchased a Samsung Note 7, had it recalled, received a replacement and then had that recalled. I wound up with an S7 Edge; nice phone, but I missed the Note 7 -- it was the best phone I'd ever had, even though I rarely used the S-Pen. I’m not one to give up on Samsung, so when the S8 and S8+ were announced I decided to wait for the availability of the unlocked versions and then purchase the S8+. However, once I had a chance to try demo units, I discovered that my average-sized hands had trouble reaching the fingerprint sensor on the s8+. I like large phones but the S8+ was too tall for me and I decided to purchase the S8 instead. Since I didn’t plan to purchase an S8 through my carrier, T-Mobile, I switched cell service to Cricket Wireless. I’m very happy with Cricket's features, the signal strength in my area, and the lower monthly cost. I still planned to buy an unlocked S8 and bring it to Cricket but on April 21 I received an email from Cricket announcing the availability of the S8. The local Cricket store had a demo unit and one in the box for sale. I didn’t plan on leaving Cricket anytime soon and I bought the S8 from the Cricket store.. So, I bought the S8 instead of the S8+ and the phone I bought is locked to Cricket for the next six months. I'm OK with that and, after a few days, the S8 is the best phone I've ever had. It has everything I liked about the Note 7 and more -- a beautiful AMOLED screen that’s remarkably bright, USB C, incredibly fast charging, wireless charging, 64GB of storage plus a microSD card slot, and great build quality. There was an S-Pen feature on the Note 7 that allowed you to take screenshots of selected areas of the screen and also create animated GIFs. That feature is available on an S8 Edge panel. I would prefer a better location for the fingerprint sensor, although it’s easy to reach and, with a bumper case on the phone, I have yet to miss the sensor and smudge the camera lens. I can’t use the iris scanner with bifocals, and Bixby is a work in progress that doesn’t need its own button. I’ve read that Samsung has improved the TouchWiz UI but I’m a Nova Prime user so I can’t comment on any TouchWiz improvements. My S8 has no wi-fi connectivity issues or a red tint on the screen, but here’s something to keep in mind. The S8 I bought from Cricket appears to be pretty much stock, but I’ve read that some T-Mobile variants have removed the wireless fast charging setting and Verizon has removed the shopping feature from Bixby vision. So far I’m very happy with Cricket Wireless and the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything I need it to and more! After a horrible experience with the ZTE Blade X Max, after 58 days I traded that in and used the $55 trade in value towards this beast. It's true when they say you get what you pay for. This phone is gorgeous, does EVERYTHING I need it to do with ease and I have not had one issue with the phone since purchase. Never was a big samsung fan, but this has changed my mind. Definitely worth the money. The only thing is that I wish the battery life was a little better, but that's not a deal breaker at all on this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an AWESOME phone! After 4 years with my old phone, it was time to upgrade. After a month of research, I decided to get the Galaxy S8. I am not disappointed in the least. This phone is FAST! Apps open very quickly, internet loads beautifully, and there is so much storage! I love the edge panel. It puts my favorite apps and contacts close at hand at all times. I use this feature constantly. Pictures and video are incredible! Even when using zoom, pictures are crisp and clear. There are so many ways to personalize this phone. I am constantly trying new. Battery life is pretty good considering I am a heavy user. Quick charge is awesome. It takes a little over an hour to fully charge. I also got a wireless charger which takes only a little longer and I don't have to hassle with cords. I plan on keeping this pbone for several years, so I keep my phone protected with a screen protector and a phone case. Otherwise I feel the phone would slip out of my hands. Overall, I LOVE the Galaxy S8!! I would recommend to anyone looking for a great, new phone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone! Fast delivery! Finally, something new with great standard features. The dual edge display is stunning right out of the box. Display and colors are sharp. Can't go wrong with 64GB and expandable storage. Device charges noticeably faster than other phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a phone! I upgraded to this phone from a Galaxy S5 and all I can say is WOW. 1. The screen is awesome 2. The battery power lasts so long I can leave Bluetooth and GPS on all day. 3, The 'Edge' window is a great place to put your most used apps. 4. The phone UI is fast and responsive. 5. Bixby is still under development but it's pretty cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Smooth I purchased 2 good these s8s, one for myself and one for the husband. We are both in our 60s and try and stay up on technology. This phone made it a smooth transition from our old phones. It was simple to transfer info and was done so smoothly, no complications. We love these phones and the many things you can do with them. My Granddaughter ius jealous! LOL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Designed I upgraded to this from the S6. My daughter ruined her phone, so I thought instead of buying her another phone, I'd upgrade mine and give her my S6. I love it! It is beautifully designed and the water resistant , shatterproof features alone make it worth the purchase. I am very pleased with this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing phone!!!! My husband just bought this phone. He loves it! He had a IPhone 5s. He did not want another IPhone. He saw this phone and feel in love with it. He says it is the best phone he has ever had. I have played some with his phone. It is amazing. The screen looks like it is painted on. I have to say this phone is so cool. It is worth buying. Bixley is so easy to use. She is as easy to use as Siri is. I highly recommend this phone!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Galaxy Beyond My Expectations! I just keep finding more and more things and features to love about this phone! My only issue is the non-replaceable battery. However I'll get a lifeproof case and replace the battery myself when I need to. But Pls keep reading. I literally would download launchers to get features this phone has in it stock, like gestures to slide the notification bar down by swiping down on the screen or using the heart rate monitor / finger print sensor. Which by the way works perfect! This phones has so many little features! I Love that it has a theme store. And has what's called Dynamic backgrounds which work on all 3 screens. Home screen. Lock screen and Off screen display. They are designed to make transition into unlocking the phone beautiful. Another Feature I'll touch on is the Bluetooth 5.0! You can pair and use 2 Bluetooth devices simultaneously! Had 2 going at a backyard get together and everyone was jamming out because having to speakers in 2 places allowed for full musical atmosphere. The screen! I love the dual curved screen and it is beautiful! Edge Screen apps are very convent (you can download more and use up to 9 edge windows) and you can adjust the bar size and transparency as well. Internal Storage! 64gb of internal storage! I got used to having a fully 64gb so the s7 was no longer an option for me. I use about 32 to 40gb of internal storage including the OS. If you fill it to full it will slow your phone down. Well most phones unless they are phablets only have 32gb. I like phablets too. Last phones was an LGv20! Awesome phone! Camera Trust me I could go on! I had to get this phone because of the camera! This camera is phenomenal and so is the s7's. I use it in a photobooth and take professional level product pics of items for my ebay store titled Tech-And-Tiques. And let me tell you it has made life so much easier! If you are on the fence. You will definitely fall in love with this phone for sure!
