The IPhone X is a great phone, but for being an all screen phone something that Apple is new too, they have some bugs to workout, not a lot of major issues, but when on a call and trying to do other things it gets a little laggy, besides that the phone has done amazing with a few of my test, the camera is one of the best i have come across, the live pictures are pretty cool, but the phone is glitchy, just a few things Apple needs to work on, nothing big.
The battery life is fine. The apps are fine. The reception not so much, but I know that is the fault of Verizon, because we have never gotten good reception where we live. The notch doesn't bother me, though I suppose it would be cooler without. What I love about the X is the feel of the phone. It feels like silk under my fingers, as I shift from app to app to off to on. Everything is smooth; there are no abrupt movements, no clicks or stops. I feel like I am using a machine from science fiction, not a mechanical object. Because of that, the X is addictive. I might not even want to look something up, send an email or text or, god forbid, answer the phone. I just want to feel my fingers sliding across the smooth, lovely glass. It is even more surreal when I use the Airpods with it. Now it magically sends signals to my ears. I am in love.
After having the phone for About a month, I’ve fallen in love with it, the a11 chip is incredible and the phone is really fast, one look and it’s unlocked, I upgraded from the iPhone 6S and I love how the size of my phone is just a little bit bigger but the screen is so much larger! The speakers are incredible and I love that I don’t have to worry about getting it wet, I don’t really miss my headphone jack at all, sometimes when I do need To listen to something with earbuds I have wireless earbuds, for those who use one set of earbuds often, I suggest tapping the dongle to the headphones, all in all don’t listen to all that crap on YouTube if this phone is in your budget then I 100% recommend it, if you want the same specs for a bit cheaper, then go for the 8+ is almost the same just without the bells and whistles
I am writing this review in order for potential consumers to understand how well made and underrated this phone is. I have had the Pixel 2 for over a month now and I will say that this phone is simply fantastic, the camera is the best camera I've seen in a smartphone to date, the duel front-facing speakers are spectacular, and to quickly summarize, this phone is smart! One last thing I will add is that the built-in Google Assistant is actually useful! (Hint, Hint, Siri isn't) I find myself using it several times a day in order to quickly pull up information that I need or to answer any questions I may have! In conclusion, if any of this information interests you, I would highly suggest getting the Pixel 2!
I highly recommend this phone. I used to have an iPhone 6 and it would just shut off and the battery life was terrible, so then I decided to switch to the phone my father had which is a one plus 3T this phone's battery life is unbelievable it will last me over a day, the screen is a perfect size, the camera takes beautiful pictures, and if I were you I would buy this phone right now!!
I know the s8 has been out since April and I'm saying this kind of late, but it is the best phone on the market. The battery last me all day on a single charge after having it for several months. I love the design. People say it's hard to reach the fingerprint sensor but I don't have any problem with it. I do have big hands so it is easier to reach the sensor. For me it has been incredibly durable. I like it better than any iPhone I have ever had. I miss the Apple App store. I like it better than Google play, but the s8 is overall the better phone. I know the new google pixel has a better camera and the iPhone X has... well.. you know it's the iPhone X. I personally have not been impressed with iPhone X. The s8 is almost around $400 cheaper and I feel like it's a better phone. I personally feel like the only phone better than the s8 might be the Note 8.
Sad if it was not for the fact that it does not have a 3.5mm port I would have bought the phone..... The price is not bad at all. The water resistant is a plus and the pictures are really nice.
I have owned every iPhone except for the 8, since the x came out so close together, & this has to be the icing on the cake, the champagne of all, the cherry to, take the prize!!! Every thing from face recognition, to anti smear, anti reflection, bottom flip to close screens, size, full glass screen, camera, battery life, siri, phone not getting hot while being used, make this the best iPhone ever!!!!! Apple has outdone itself, yet again!!! The only thing missing is, an option to, write texts, with a delivery time, set in the future, so they can be written in one time zone, & sent at a convenient time, to another time zone automatically, at a set time, so people are not disturbed, during inconvenient times, while asleep etc!!! This is an idea for apple to incorporate into their phones, to take delivery of messages, over the top!!! Thanks Apple for revolutionizing the modern phone, & making the world, get so, small!!!!
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
I like the phone. Good battery and excellent camera for stills and videos. But I had used my wife's S7 for 6 weeks before my new S8+ arrived and when I started using the S8+ keyboard, got very disappointed. It doesn't automatically space at the end of a word. Arbitrarily substitutes words I don't intend for what i typed. same words as on the S7. Doesn't seem to build a new personal disctionary of my usual words consistently either. Typing on this phone is a nuisance when it had been so much easier on the S7. Yes I'd still buy it again for the battery and photos, that this is a daily nuisance and so far, I haven't detected any effort by Samsung to improve it (over the past 6 months).
Impressed! Better than expected and better than some of the expert reviews. For example, a popular critic said the phone felt cheap. Nothing can be more from the truth. You feel like you are holding a piece of solid platinum. Best iPhone to date and I have owned every single one since the beginning.
Near perfect for the price ($29 or even cheaper). I just bought this phone about six months after buying the similarly/identically priced Alcatel Ideal, which I thought was a very good phone for the bargain price also. This one has it beat. Admittedly, this particular model is almost a year newer than that other, and it is almost the same phone except that this one is a bit better in many ways. The only thing I like about the Alcatel Ideal better than the ZTE Majesty Pro LTE is that the Ideal can be easily rooted whereas I haven't found a way to root this one yet.
We were with Verizon for years. then, 3 years ago we moved to tmobile. what a mistake that was. Price was good, service was not. They kept saying we were in coverage. NO way! once our contract was up I had read in consumer reports about consumer cellular. They were just too expensive. Then we almost did repubic but their phones were expensive and the use of wifi for calling was not what we wanted. So we ended up with a company called ting. Started out fine, but after a while our bill kept going up, had really no way to rein it in. And their customer NO SERVICE was not wanting to help! I stumbled upon a site called my rate plan for Twigby and I am so glad I did. We all got new phones for next to nothing and the service is just as good as when we had verizon and we pay less then when we were with tmobile. I tell all my friends about Twigby. It's great and we get $20 every time I refer someone. Shout from the mountain Twigby is great!!!! The only thing that could be better is if they had stores, or I would give them all 5's.
As a fan of both android, and iOS. I would have to say that the iPhone X is by far the best phone I’ve ever had. The screen is amazing and easy on the eyes and I really don’t notice the notch as much. Battery life on this bad boy is unbelieveable! Coming from the 7 plus, it’s a big difference. Face ID is the ish!!! All I have todo is look at the phone for notices to appear, and unlocking is quick and easy. The iPhone X is all around an amazing device and if you want a big screen that still fits in your hand, this is the phone!
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.
Let me just say, I am a fan of Apple. I have owned other brands in the past but switched to the 4s and haven’t looked back. I received the iPhone X on release day. After 2 days, I can honestly say I don’t miss the previous design. The X is a beautifully designed, easy to navigate phone. iPhone users it’s been ingrained in us to use the Home button. But after 10 minutes on the X, the swiping gestures feel natural. I’m glad the iconic Home button is gone! And what’s up with this stupid notch thing everyone is complaining about? I literally had to google it. I don’t see a notch. I see a black border which is part of the screen. I think it’s aesthetically pleasing and fits the design perfectly. When you hold the X, you feel how well built it is. This wasn’t designed with cheap materials. You feel the weight. It reminds me of the 4 in terms of weight. Also with anything new, there will be little glitches here and there just like all the other brands. But as flagship iPhone, this is a perfect start! Apple will do what Apple does, which is build upon and perfect! The crisp and sharp display is gorgeous. And it’s super fast. The battery is also really good but I don’t run a ton of apps like most kids today. The reception is great as well! The calls aren’t breaking up. That’s partly due to the carrier I have and area I live in. I can honestly say when I heard the price tag I said out loud, “there is no way in hell I’m paying that price!” But I’ve been longing for a completely new iPhone design. In my opinion, it was money well spent! Thank you Apple! Keep moving forward and continue to be unique!

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!
Hi. I am a former S5 Active customer and could not wait for the S8 active's release. I am a busy parent with kids so our family heavily relies on mobile phones when running around town for kid sporting events, etc. The first thing that I was amazed by was the battery life. There is a performance mode feature on the phone that also helps extends the life. Very helpful! The phone itself runs apps at blazing speeds. Could not be any happier. I understand display ratings are important for some reviewers but for me. I am not concerned with the display resolution as long as youtube/ netflix is running when in a tight pinch. Taking pictures and video were a huge step up from the S5 active so this was noticeable too. I found myself using wifi-calling features more often but that is because my carrier doesn't reach everywhere. Very happy. The design is great, very dense when holding it and very rugged in appearance. I like that the back panel is no longer removable. The only issue that we have experienced was that the humidity sensor definitely works in southern climates! When the outdoor temps were 90+ degrees with very high humidity, we had to find creative ways to recharge the battery during a "reboot" procedure that we googled. Other than that, we are very pleased. Would recommend to other parents too.
Rock and Kim., bought the new iPhone 8+ Kendra sold us the phone, she was polite, helpful and very knowledgeable. Justin store manager has the store running top notch. Great shopping experience.
