Samsung Galaxy S8


Phones have become a little stale. Whether it's an iPhone 7, Huawei P10, Sony Xperia XZ Premium or any other flagship phone, they all look and feel the same. But just when I thought a phone couldn't surprise and delight me any more, the Samsung Galaxy...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review


Biometric issues aside, the Galaxy S8 is a brilliant phone

Amazing, large display ; Huge power ; Great camera

Irritating biometric unlocking ; Very expensive at launch ; Bixby pointless

The large, bezel-less display is truly iconic and beautiful, and the screen quality excellent. The fingerprint scanner being placed on the back is a poor decision from Samsung, as well as the iris scanner / facial recognition not working well enough to...

Galaxy S8 review: a year on and Samsung's outgoing flagship remains a technical marvel


With the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S9, is last year's flagship now the biggest steal on the smartphone market? Read our review to find out...

Brilliant display ; Blazing fast performance ; Bluetooth 5 and dual audio

Rear fingerprint reader placement ; Face recognition hit and miss ; Bixby needs to differentiate

Samsung Galaxy S8 review


This beautiful smartphone marks a return to form for Samsung

Stunning build and design ; Large, bright screen ; Snappy performance ; Great camera

Full Bixby not yet available ; Fingerprint scanner poorly positioned ; Colour palette could be better ; Sound could be more transparent

The world’s most beautiful smartphone is also one of the best. The S8 is Samsung’s comeback king

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: A mobile masterpiece


What we have here is the best Android phone of 2017. It's a masterpiece; one with a few brush-strokes out of place, but a masterpiece nonetheless.

The most eye-catching phone design you can buy today ; Great-looking 18.5:1 aspect ratio AMOLED screen is ideal for entertainment (even more so when HDR comes into play) ; Best Samsung software experience to date ; Decent battery life and optimisations...

Fingerprint scanner is poorly placed ; Iris and face recognition logins have limited success ; Bixby button initially useless ; Connectivity can cause issues with perfect playback/graphical functions ; Some features hidden in menus ; Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the flagship to rule all flagships. From a design perspective it's an unbridled head-turner, delivering design that's a step above any of the competition out there. The 18.5:1 screen ratio is central to a focus on entertainment...

Samsung Galaxy S8 review


UPDATE: Samsung's best phone to date is also the most stunning phone we've ever clapped eyes on - and it's now available in two new colours

It’s the most beautiful smartphone ever ; Ridiculous power, put to good use with DeX ; The camera is amazing, as always

Bixby’s full talents not available at launch ; Not all apps are optimised for its 18.5:9 aspect ratio ; That fingerprint sensor position is not great at all

The S8 is close to perfect, from its gorgeous, slim bezel design to its superb camera

Samsung Galaxy S8 DeX station review


Turns Samsung's hero handset into a full-blown desktop PC - but isn't without its faults

Slick hardware that’s easy to carry around ; DeX desktop is simple enough ; Phone is powerful enough to keep things running smoothly

Keyboard and mouse don’t behave exactly as you’d expect ; Some apps just don’t support DeX at all ; Multitasking isn’t as straightforward as we’d like

The best desktop docking station ever still isn’t perfect. DeX is fine for the basics, but for anything more you’ll be longing for your laptop

Samsung Galaxy S8 Review: In Depth


Samsung Galaxy S8 review: The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a lot to prove. It not only has to outclass its predecessor in every conceivable manner...

Exquisite design ; Class-leading display ; Excellent performance

Divisive software design ; Duplicate apps ; Bixby is incomplete at launch

It would seem that the Galaxy S8 not only helps push the troublesome Note 7 further back into memory but also presents Samsung as a company renewed for 2017. Some elements of the phone’s hardware are iterative whilst others break new ground..

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: Two years on, is the galaxy S8 still a worthy purchase?


The Samsung Galaxy S8 was the best phone of 2017, but is it still top dog?

Incredible camera ; Brilliant display ; Sumptuous design

Expensive ; Awkward fingerprint reader placement ; Battery isn't as good as Galaxy S7

In the early years, Samsung dumped the very highest specs and features into its latest Galaxy S device and dealt with the design thereafter.
