When will the Samsung Galaxy S8 be released?

Following announcement on 29 March, we expect the Samsung Galaxy S8 to be available to order from Carphone Warehouse around mid-April.

What's the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S8?

There are quite a few differences between the S7 and S8, but the first thing you'll notice is the display. The S8's screen is much bigger, stretching right across the face of the phone. There's also an iris scanner included above the display now for improved security.

Where is the home button on Samsung Galaxy S8?

The home button is now on the screen, because there isn't any room under it. And the fingerprint scanner, which was embedded within the home button on the S7, is now on the back of the phone, next to the camera lens.

What is the screen aspect ratio of the Samsung Galaxy S8?

The aspect ratio of the Samsung Galaxy S8's screen is 18:5:9. Compared to the S7's, which was 16:9.

Which brand of headphones does the Samsung Galaxy S8 come with?

With every Samsung Galaxy S8, you'll receive a pair of earbuds tuned by AKG in the box as standard.

What is Bixby?

Samsung's first home-grown virtual assistant is called Bixby. It lives inside the new Galaxy S8 , and it'll be arriving in the UK later this year.

Which VR headset can I use the Samsung Galaxy S8 with?

The Samsung Galaxy works with the new Gear VR (2017). To get started, use the USB Type-C adaptor to plug the phone into the mask, and you'll be taken through a tutorial set process. Make sure you're connected to Wi-Fi first, as the downloads can be quite large.

Samsung Galaxy S8 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone in years In simple terms, this is the best phone I've had in years. The photos in auto mode are fantastic n sharp. Changing modes is a simple swipe. I get great low light photos of my cat (who do t like keeping still). The ringtone volume is amazingly loud. I have the same ringtone as my last phone n often missed calls, that hasn't happen yet on this. Music.plays back in very good quality n volume. The headphones, are the 'dog's'! Best in pack headphones ever. The edge feature, initially annoying, but once used to it, is a great addition, esp for those apps you use often but not all the time. For accessibility, this phone is good. I need strong reading glasses, but if you go for larger font, you can without it looking daft. I wear 2 hearing aids, but when I'm not, I can still hear it ring. Speaker mode on a call has 2 settings and when used, calls are so clear n loud. .... no more, can you repeat please! lol The size of the phone is bigger, but manageable with one hand for most tasks. It's fairly responsive even for me, which makes one handed use easier. It has plenty of speed when performing tasks and internet. Battery lasts a day of medium use. I really recommend this phone. I bought a clear tough case, with raised edges too n bottom (which proved a saviour when I dropped it (1st proper drop of a fone since 1993)). Techradar, voted this the phone n camera of the year. It was voted for by the public.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Battery life is amazing. It has all features needed for every day life and fun and games and then some Features you didnt know you needed. I suggest having a samsung VR headset with this for maximum entertainment. Their is only one small issue and that is the screen is a little clumsy but that is fixable if you put on a popsocket which are about £3. Its just the hand you hold the phone with touches the curved screen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great phone with lots of features I bought a blue Galaxy S8 from Carphone 2 months ago. I had few Samsung phones(note4, galaxy s6 edge+ and galaxy s7 edge) and the galaxy s8 has the best design/ergonomics . The screen is awsome, a very responsive keyboard, the Touchwiz(now called Samsung experience) is very good ,a bit laggy and with lots of handy features such as always on display(in my opinion this is the best looking UI ). Not to mention about the headphones, very good quality. Battery life is pretty much the same(i used full brightness ,location on,wifi on ,mobile data on,always on display and Bluetooth on) I get 4h-4.5h SOT in about 14h of use(morning to evening- interneting/youtube/videos/WhatsApp). In direct sun the screen brightness goes up and makes the phone very warm to touch. Not the brightest screen from Samsung when outdoor in sunny days ,but the best looking one(S6 edge+ was very bright). RAM management is worst than galaxy s7 edge(especially the internet browser which will always reload the background pages, same as the apps ). Every now and then i accidentally pressed the Bixby button, especially when you reach for volume buttons . The screen isnt as curved as the S7 edge and i do recommend a case and a screen protector (most of the tempered glass protectors out there arent fully adhesive to the screen which makes the dust to get in) The phone feels very good when handling, easy to be used with one hand. Overall i am happy with it and i do recommend it .
