I want the 5 back

Posted on: December 7th, 2017 by Krista123

This is the worst phone I've worked with since the 3. Voice to text has reverted back to non usable. The phone refuses to download more than one document or email at a time without restarting. Bixby is a non working answer to Apple or Google. Saving new contact cards is impossible. It's bad. Don't waste your money. I got cracked and ordered one when they were first released. Bummed!

SAMSUNG S8+ BEWARE THE SCAM

Posted on: December 6th, 2017 by TBat55

I BOUGHT A SAMSUNG S8+ THRU VERIZON BECAUSE OF THE $250 GIFT CARD REBATE OFFER. UPLOADED A PHOTO OF THE RECEIPT ($970) USING VERIZON CHAT AND DURING THE QUALIFICATION PERIOD. 3 DAYS LATER I GET AN EMAIL "THEY CAN'T READ THE PHOTO". MAILED HARDCOPIES OF THE RECEIPT, THEN AN EMAIL "TOO LATE, OUTSIDE THE QUALIFICATION PERIOD". DO NOT TRUST SAMSUNG. SAMSUNG, AND VERIZON, CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

Pucture Quality on Samsung Galaxy S8

Posted on: December 1st, 2017 by Humblenblessed

I find that the Camera picture quality on the Samsung 8S and 8S Plus is very poor. If I had known that it was this bad, I wouldn't have upgraded my Galaxy Edge Plus to this phone. The Galaxy Edge Plus phone picture quality is excellent. In my opinion it more than exceeds the 8S and the 8S Plus picture quality. I took several pictures again last night and I had to delete all but one. That one still wasn't top quality, but I kept it anyway. You would think if you pay $800 for a phone, the camera on it would at least be decent. I am so disappointed!!

I am giving a review for the Samsung Galaxy S8+

Posted on: November 28th, 2017 by zachjf2021

So I have had personal experience with S8+ and its very exceptional for what Samsung has done here. To start off the screen. The screen is one of the best AMOLED screens out there compared to competitors and offers a very bright screen, rich details, the colors are spot on with it being a AMOLED. Secondly the battery life is well, its way better than an iphone thats for sure. On a daily use I could go about all day and have about a little over 30% by the time I set it on the charger, but overall battery life will surpass most iphone users or other users expectations on how long it can last. Now on to the camera, its very nice of samsung to make it to where at night S7 an S8 users have the upper hand when taking pictures because of a F1.7 aperture that allows all that light to come in which any day of the week blows any other phones out there right now out of the water. Quality of the shots are as expected on a galaxy to be pretty good for competition. Now for the last section, the performance is phenomenal when multi-tasking and its a breeze you dont need a A11 bionic chip to do what this Samsung can do. Gaming is pretty good too i enjoy playing the games that are fitted for the entire screen and hopefully in the future all games are converted for the S8 so that entire quad HD+ screen can be in use. Now the verdict here is, if you want a phone thats true quality and is bigger in screen, then this phone is for you. Sorry apple but you are know where close to what Samsung can do and will do, remember that. Thankyou

Samsung 8 plus worst Samsung phone

Posted on: November 16th, 2017 by Angelmom

I love Samsung phones but getting the Samsung 8 plus was the worst choice ever. I should of stayed with my Samsung 6 edge. Phone has glitches out twice as a manufacturer default. Got my 3rd replacement $400 later low and behold had the 3rd replacement and had it 5 days and it already clutching and had to factory reset it. It's totally ridiculous. If the note 8 would of been out I would of rather had it or stuck with my 6 edge. Wouldn't recommend to anyone

Galaxy s8

Posted on: November 16th, 2017 by rodders

I'm still struggling to get response from keys despite removing protector. I'm having difficulty with arrow up , the a and x key's. My grammar is poor as it's so hard to select higher case. this mobile is overmarketed and is worse I've ever had. I've smashed rear screen after can't select key's to express my frustration. I assume those techies raving are either stupid or not genuine Rodney Gardner

Samsung Galaxy S8

Posted on: November 7th, 2017 by jlrichardsonjr

The S8 has some nice features but I was surprised at what it doesn't have. The first big thing I noticed is that it doesn't have is a "Do Not Disturb" mode that syncs with google calendar appointments and meetings. Nothing is more embarrassing than being that guy who's phone starts ringing in the middle of an important meeting or event. I had to use the "Tasker" app to set this up. My previous phone, a Moto X came with this feature out of the box over 2 years ago. All phone notifications were muted if you were marked as "Busy" on your calendar. I just assumed the Galaxy phones would have something similar to the Moto Assist functionality I had so enjoyed on the Motorolla. The S8 has no "driving mode" where it will read me a text when I'm driving and ask me if I would like to send a text in response all with my voice. These are a couple of functions my previous phone had that I used practically every day. Bixby is suppose to allow voice calling but it has been highly unreliable for me using voice commands. Thankfully the phone does come with Google assistant which works far better than the Samsung Bixby function. The Bixby button is frankly, just in the way. I turned it off. I should say a couple of good things about the phone I suppose. It has a great camera, the display is awesome and it has good storage capabilities. That was a big downside of the Moto X was storage. I've been hearing from happy Galaxy users for years about how awesome their phones are. Personally, I'm not that impressed. I'm hoping it will grow on me.

Don't ever buy a Samsung S8

Posted on: November 3rd, 2017 by Not Happy

I bought a Samsung S8 2 months ago, it has now turned itself off and does not work. I got in touch with Samsung only to be told I have to pay 50 pounds to have something that may not be the problem replaced to but it back under warranty, even though the warranty last for 24 months. The S8 has a common fault called the BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH which I didn't find out till it happened to me. I will NEVER buy Samsung again I will be going back to LG

S8+

Posted on: October 28th, 2017 by glennd1030

I have had my S8+ for about a month now and it's a great phone no doubt. But! It's all scratched up!! This generation gorilla glass is crap! I have not dropped it or done anything other than remove it from my pocket and there are deep scratches on the front and back? Never saw this in any other phone! Not scratch resistant! Had my S6 Edge+ for two years dropped it got it wet I mean I put that phone through abuse and not a scratch on the screen ever!! But my new phone screen was ruined in the first week? I feel this is messed up because now I have to use this phone that's all scratched I'd rather have the old glass!

Samsung S8

Posted on: October 14th, 2017 by Thisguysreveiwingthisthing

Idk. I piteverything in 3s cause I just got the phone. Except design cause why are you still making glass phones. It's stupid shit. But it comes with these shitty axz headphones. Which is weird cause samsung actually makes decent headphones.not sure why they wouldn't have their own product. Especially when you're paying so much for the phone and what it comes with. Other than that it's been decent so far. Lock stuffs a lol whatever. And I'm sure they've made things more difficult in ways. But I had the s6 before (I liked it's shape better cause it didn't feel as breakable even tho that price of shit was made completely out of glass too. Either way.still better than Apple I guess.
