For Samsung, it’s also the most important phone. It represents a chance to restore buyers’ confidence after theand an opportunity to cement the Samsung name as the top Android brand against rivals from Google, LG and OnePlus.
What makes the Galaxy S8 so special is this: A tall, narrow shape that fits snugly in my palm and curved sides that scream “classy.” And the screen? 5.8 inches of colorful gorgeousness and a display that stretches from edge to edge with just a whisper of a bezel. For its looks alone, Samsung’s flashiest phone lands at the top of the class. Trust me, when you see the S8 and, you’re gonna want to put your hands all over them.
I did everything with these two phones at home, in the office, around town and at the beach. I took scores of photos and videos, watched tons of YouTube and Netflix movies, chatted my fingers off. I sat on them in my back pocket (no Bendgate yet). I must have unlocked these things 100 times in four different ways (fingerprint, eyes, face, pin). So I’m confident pointing out the S8’s problems — because, let’s be real, there’s always something.
