Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone I've owned Most annoying phone I've ever owned. - not waterproof - face recognition doesn't work as it should - finger print unlocking doesn't work as it should - every time I'm watching YouTube and someone calls me, after finished conversation phone is going into lock mode - useless dictionary And this is only a tip of the iceberg. Overall very annoying device. I appreciate other's peoples opinions and the fact that many will disagree with my opinion but this one is mine. Going back to iPhone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable all-round Smartphone! I’ve owned the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus since it’s launch in April 2017 and I can honestly say it does not disappoint. In the 12 months of ownership, this phone has served me very well. It has some useful features and I don’t believe that I could ever go to another device which doesn’t have a Always On Display. Honestly, you don’t realise how useful the Always On Display can be as well as the LED Notification light until you own a Samsung phone. I would say that after 12 months of ownership, I have experienced lag in certain areas of the software experience which in my case, seems to have got slightly worse since the latest update to Android 8.0 Oreo, especially when launching apps such as WhatsApp, but it’s nothing major and not a reason to overly slate this phone. Battery life has been very reasonable but don’t expect to get more than a day’s worth of juice out of this device. I charge my phone every night and after moderate daily usage (2 to 3hrs screen-on time) and 13hrs since the last full charge, I go to bed with about 25% to 30% battery left (sometimes a tiny bit more), which is pretty consistent in my experience. If you’re after longevity, I would suggest looking at something better suited for stamina and long periods away from the charger like the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The camera is reliable in most lighting and there’s a selection of different modes to choose from. I wouldn’t say that the camera is best in class but if you’re after decent, vibrant and relatively detailed pictures every time then you won’t go far wrong. Audio is nothing to brag about with the bottom firing mono-speaker being loud but not that balanced when listening to music or watching YouTube videos, although it does have a 3.5mm headphone jack and comes with some very good quality earphones tuned by AKG which is a nice touch. The screen is typical of Samsung, providing an industry leading AMOLED experience with excellent brightness and screen clarity. My only real gripe with this smartphone is Bixby. I can understand why it’s useful, but unless you really enjoy asking your phone to do tasks you could easily do by touching applications on the screen, it’s quite honestly a redundant feature and in 12 months, Samsung has quite honestly failed to convince me why I should use it. It’s not really much more useful than Google Assistant (which this phone also has) which makes me wonder why Samsung believed it was necessary to have 2 voice assistants built-in?! And to add to that, the Bixby button on the side of the phone is very annoying. Several times I have been in an application or watching a video etc, and I’ve accidentally caught the Bixby button, shutting down my current app to display the Bixby home page. Samsung did provide an update to turn the button off entirely but then you’re left with a silly physical side button which doesn’t do anything, which makes no sense on a smartphone which costs this much. Asides from my Bixby gripe, this is an excellent and well rounded smartphone and probably makes more sense than the extra cost you would need to pay to get the Galaxy S9+ unless you specifically NEED the extra features that phone brings to the table. As a phone, it’s never really let me down after 12 months of use, and if core reliability is what matters to you then yes, I strongly recommend this phone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Confused, how is it so bad? Not like any other samsung I have had in the last 4 years, I have dropped this phone from sitting distance twice, with a sturdy case and it has smashed the screen both times, older versions haven't had a scratch in the years I have had them and dropped them from standing and stairs even. The on screen back button etc, is in the way of all of the app menus I use. It takes me ages to navigate my apps because the home menu keeps popping over them. oh and I can not access my music app from my home screen. Before I could switch the song easily now i have to swipe, unlock, open the app go to the home screen and change the song. Deeply confused by the design. Terrible user experience.
