Samsung S8

Posted on: September 16th, 2017 by bigkahunaaj

I have had Samsung for years and havent had many problems , But this Samsung S8 is absolute piece of junk !!!! My clients could not hear me 3 phones later , it would not talk and text .It has major issues . I switched to Moto Z2 Force and love it . it is literally 10 times better than samsung S8. Do not waste your time with phone .

Galaxy s8

Posted on: September 7th, 2017 by Nurken

I was used to to use phones for 5 years. In 2006 i bought a not expensive smartphone and used it untill i bought htc desire hd in 2011. Which was unbreakable but got morally old in 2016. Both of these smartphones had never been cracked inspite of that i didnt put on a case and dropped them several times by accident! In contrast galaxy smartphones really disappointed me. In december 2016 i got galaxy s7 edge which was #1 in all ratings. But just 1 drop on rug in my appartment and screen got cracked. I fixed it for $270 in samsung center. Several months later it was stolen but its not company's fault its my mistake. However i really liked the display, sound, processor stuf and etc, and i thought that crack of the screen its just an accident. So i decided to get a new galaxy s8 which was advertised as the best smartphone currently. It was very beautiful and functionally is amazing but again just one slide from my hand when i was getting it out of my pocket - SCREEN IS DAMAGED AGAIN! I dont understand why Samsung makes sUch a great phone but so BRITTLE? I think it is enough expensive to install a really good glass. Why do u make GALAXY untrustable? In 6 months i had got two phones from samsung galaxy and both got cracked! This never happened to me. From my previous experience u can see that i am very gentle concerning phones. They had never benn cracked or smth else. If you put such a brittle glass then why do make edges made of glass?!these edge are useless. Moreoveer these phones are useless if u make them so brittle. Now i have to fix screen of my galaxy s8 for 200$. It is almost half price of the phone. After this i will never buy samsung products. I should have listened what my wife said. She said get an iphone because she had two galaxy phones and both of them got screen cracked very soon. But i am an android fan so i did not follow her advice. Now i regret. Galaxy s7 edge and galaxy s8 were my worst choices. I will never recommend anyone to buy samsung phones!

samsung galaxy s8

Posted on: September 6th, 2017 by krishna

Samsung is a very bad company in mobile phones.Recently I purchased S8 2months old, it is having network issue. There is a mother board problem,they are not able to replace the phone,just they are giving service as it is a old phone.I requested them many times,but they are not able to satisfy the customer.... Finally I dont like samsung....

My last Samsung phone.

Posted on: September 5th, 2017 by Chad S

They took out ir blaster, put in curved screen that nobody wants and that activates crap you don't want opened every time you try to pick it up. They put Bixby on with it's own button and no way to disable or delete it and it opens every time you try to pick it up or use the phone. Speed isn't much better than my S6 I had last. If something doesn't change this will be my last Samsung. On the good side at least it's waterproof finally.

So-o disappointed...

Posted on: August 25th, 2017 by Judith

On Jun 16, 2017 I bought a Samsung Galaxy S8 on line for $664 and I bought it from SAMSUNG. It worked beautifully until last Saturday (8/19/2017). It went into Emergency Mode and I had to enter my pin number to use the phone. T-Mobile tried to fix it and today Samsung via their website on-line support tried to fix it. They tried for 1 1/2 hours and were not successful. I believe I bought a $664 LEMON. I wouldn't recommend it. I wish they'd offered to replace it. Take it from me, DON'T BUY A SAMSUNG GALAXY S8.

My S8

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by Jai

This phone is beautiful, however it's no upgrade if you've been with Samsung for awhile. This phone isn't better than my note 5. Overpriced for certain. A slimmer design doesn't warrant this price tag. Every update Samsung manages to eliminate the cool features and keep the worse ones like Bixby. Keep the navigation bar color wheel and get rid of these boring pastel colors. This phone is on its way back to the store, not getting stuck with this price tag. Would recommend for someone who never had a decent phone. Samsung suckered me too, after the 7 nightmare I thought this phone would be fire. This note 8 better be super awesome. Overall great,pretty phone that does everything your old phone does.

keep clear of liquids samsung s8

Posted on: August 6th, 2017 by sprintsux

used and iq shield on my brand new samsung s8 after waiting 24 hours i charged the phone (i thought) turns out it only charged 6 percent in 8 hours. the charge circle had a triangle and water drop on it. . called sprint samsung went to the tech service and all said water damage. their commercials show it dropped in a swimg pool and someone showering with the phone in hand .its a total piece of crap and totally not even water resistant. really bad choice if you work in the trades or vacation near any water. false advertising suit soon .BEWARE SPRINT bad customer service

I HATE THE FRONT FACING CAMERA! It makes my face very long. My Samsung Galaxy S6 had a way better camera! I'm disappointed. I honestly wish I never upgraded...

DON'T WASTE UR MONEY ON THIS S8 / S8+ PLUS HORRIBLE PHONE TROBLE FROM THE START, LITERALLY

Posted on: July 20th, 2017 by Cherokeejoy

Ive only given a 2 for the few hrs im able to use the phone. From the time i got home & powered it on, the screen was grren. So green that it took almost an hour to get it so I could use it. (Verizon was closed by the time i got home with it.) To b able to use tbe phone u have to figure ur way blindly to get to thw brightness setting then if its not on the max brightness when the warning pops up saying this lol of brightness causes damage to ppl, u can't use the phone. All u have is a phone that looks like a forest. My other 1/2 has the s8 plus & he hasn't seemed to have trouble with his like mine, but with what I e been able to do with the phone I'm not $800 happy. The curved screen makes it so u cant easily select things that's near the curve.when typing anythi5 u have to try to catch anything it changes or or doesn't register even if u feel it vibrate as u touch each letter or number. Not happy with it. Maybe when I get the replacement it will actually work & b a new $800 phone not a remanufactured phone either I didn't buy that I bought a new phone I expect it to work like one & since it doesn't it needs to be replaced with a new one.
