SAMSUNG GALAXY S8 FAQS

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 4.0 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning phone. Great value! I purchased this phone recently. I have to say that I'm impressed. Even though this phone is a year old it still makes most iPhones look like dinosaurs. Even the X has no hold over the looks of this device. The price is pretty reasonable now, too. Especially, for the specs. It has a very high end feel and I love the taller design, I hate how bulky a lot of smartphones feel and look these days. The display is mesmerising. The software still trails ahead of most phones and it's easy to use - even for a novice. I like the rear camera, it captures some great shots - but obviously it isn't the best and doesn't come close to that of a Pixel 2 (If you think it's worth the extra price tag that is?). If you want to take selfies you might not like the front facing camera - I don't. And, portait mode is bit of a disappointed. For selfies, Samsung have that annoying processing - which is like beauty mode is constantly on - it smoothes/ blurs your face and makes you look like your Korean. But, if you're ugly then this is probably the phone for you. Battery life isn't great but then it's not absolutely terrible either! The AKG headphones are a good match. Not sure about bixby, seems like hard-work. And, lastly I am scared of dropping this phone as it seems very fragile. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average performance for a flagship phone. I bought this from Carphone on the first day when it was available. I have used the phone for more than 1 year and my thoughts are: - Nice display, like the curves of the screen. -Premium feel when holding and feels sturdy. -Very unpleasant typing experience. Bad keyboard response and typing on this phone is quite painful. I used to have a Sony Xperia Z3 and that phone types much better than the S8. -Good camera, however I was plagued by a strange camera bug for months, in which it rendered my main camera unable to focus and constantly blur. Thank goodness after a few months, a new update fixed this issue. It was a nightmare. -Phone speed is not as impressive as other rival at the time of purchase. This is my first experience with the Samsung S8 and also a Samsung phone. To be honest, I am quite disappointed because of all the hype and advertisement about how great the Galaxy phones are, especially they carry a big price tag. This will unfortunately be my last Samsung phone, since there are other who makes better and cheaper phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best phone swich frome an iphone 6s i got this phone about 3 mothe ago and i one of the best phone i ever got in 2017
Date published: 2018-05-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, not good... I bought this in December and have loved it, apart from the repetitive updates. Seems to do an update every few weeks over night. Not pleased with the fact that I keep getting a 'Moisture Detection' message. Doesn't allow you to charge the phone 'until the USB/charging port is fully dry', baring in mind that it hasn't been wet AND IS MEANT TO BE A WATERPROOF PHONE! Not pleased that the new S9 model seems to have a better deal on it than my S8 did, not great with keeping prices consistent at Carphone Warehouse.
