  • Intelligent security

    The unique detail in your eye is used to unlock the smartphone with the iris scanner, which is even more secure than a fingerprint scanner.

Design & display

Seeing the big picture

The Galaxy S8’s Quad HD infinity display measures 5.8-inches from corner to corner, subtly wrapping around the sides of the smartphone. And, the new aspect ratio of 18,5:9 means you’ll be able to see a bigger picture than ever before on mobile. 

Flawless design

There’s no denying the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a stunning device, with a smooth glass front and back that’s easy to hold in one hand. The curved screen gives you loads of room to enjoy all your favourite apps, games and videos. And the Quad HD resolution means you’ll see every detail. 

Improved security

Privacy has never been more important, which is why, as well as a fingerprint scanner, Samsung has included an iris scanner on the Galaxy S8. It detects the unique makeup of your eyes for next-level security. 


More light for better photos

Samsung’s Dual Pixel technology lets in loads of light to make sure all your photos and videos are bright and beautiful. It can also focus in an instant, so you’ll never have a blurry shot. 

Even better selfies

Squeezed in above the massive infinity display is a powerful 8MP front-facing camera. It can record video in Quad HD resolution, and it has autofocus technology to make sure your selfies really stand out.   

Under the hood

Loads of storage

The Samsung Galaxy S8 boasts a huge 64GB of internal storage as standard, meaning there’s lot of space for all your favourite apps and games. And, by using the Google Photos app, you can save all your videos and photos to the cloud. 

Pure power

On the power front, there’s a beefy 64-bit octa-core processor, joined by 4GB RAM. Together they make sure you can do lots of things at once without any lag in between. 

All-round protection

The S8 is protected against water and dust, certified as IP68. This means that the smartphone can be submerged in fresh water at a depth of 1.5m for up to 30 minutes, without any damage to its performance.

Samsung Galaxy S8 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nia10 from Doesn't live up to hype After all the hype and long wait for s8 to come out. i pre-ordered only to find that one i received was faulty. was unable to exchange as carphone warehouse didn't have any spares in stock as not on general release till 25/04/17. phone itself is a bit long so for lady hands abit hard to manage with one hand. curved edges although look good are annoying as it is hard to drag apps to another page. also hard to select areas in that area as sensor ends close to edge but app pic goes bit further so placing of finger is key. like other posters have stated some apps like bixby are still in development. it is a pretty pricey phone and i think going for s7 and much reduced price is just as good. all and all phone did not live up to hype. samsung customers services also pretty rubbish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jeswinjolly23 from could be better definatly(not quality) it is not worth the price. also most apps are still developing eg- bixby. the camera is good but should have had a dual camera plus it is the same design as the s7 (only back). it you need a good looking phone then go ahead. not the worst but could be better

Rated 1 out of 5 by James94 from Damage When Samsung say they've tested it from a meter and a half from the floor and it didn't break. It's rubbish the screen crack after falling from a coffee table. It's terrible
