The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ (Plus) represent the most advanced Android smartphones on the market. The Galaxy S8 is not without it’s quirks… It’s got an unusual aspect ratio, lower than maximum screen resolution out of the box and no real enhancement to battery life (from the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge). That said the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are some of the more comfortable phones I’ve held. The change in aspect ratio give you a slender phone which still packs an enormous screen. The Galaxy S8 Plus has a 6.2-inch display and feels smaller in the hand than most 5.5-inch phones (including the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL). The Samsung Galaxy S8 is likely the “screen champ” right now as well, with an amazing AMOLED panel and resolution up to 2,960 x 1,440 pixels. You will not be disappointed with the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus. Still, the world of Android smartphones has advanced tremendously (especially in the $400 retail range) and I think many will find better value elsewhere. So what do you think, is the Samsung Galaxy S8 worth it’s premium price tag?

    "bizzare aspect ratio" he said, and now, in 2019, sony xperia 10 came out, with 21:9 ratio, and every other phone 19 – 19.5 : 9

    NIce size comparison (lol..with what??) dude, you might want to cut back the caffeine. I think default medium screen resolution setting is a smart Idea as display nerds will know how to find this hidden jewel) and those that aren't, wont care, but all of them will enjoy the extended battery life (by default)

    It never used to suck but ever since that garbage one UI update it now is garbage a lot of the features that people have purchased that phones for are no longer available the roundish kiddie colored icons of the days of early TouchWiz have returned and to be quite honest they have made the entire phone look and feel like an iPhone if I wanted an iPhone I would have went and purchased one Samsung was supposed to be the resistance but now I feel like I have an iPhone in a Samsung case I would recommend last year for everyone to purchase this phone I have no recommendations for that this year unless you're lucky enough to still get it with Android Oreo and just don't take the update my beautiful professional looking $800 plus phone now looks like it's just a dollar garbage Child's Play toy I hate the phone now so much I don't even use it really I feel like giving it to my son and possibly grabbing a pixel or something how is the new pixel looking?

    I've had Samsung Galaxy S6 for 3 years now and in a week I will finally get a new one. Will be so weird not to have the original home, back, and the overlay button, but I just cannot wait! Thank you for making this video, helped me a lot of choosing the S8

    Using this phone for almost two years… haven't faced any issue that you pointed out. And have never felt that the fingerprint scanner is out of place. Its a little getting used to, that's it. That's the problem with this generation. Everyone wants everything tailor made for them. Great phone and not planning to change any time soon.

    Does anyone else think about how the speaker in the phone he shows us is pointless. It is coming through the speaker on my phone so I can't hear how good it is

    I will never understand how people can even go for iPhone, like android you can literally do anything you've ever wanted to do on a smartphone, gives you freedom and you can even download thirdparty apps like a computer.

    I actually don't think the brightness level warning is them telling you not to use you phone at full capacity. Using high brightness levels does reduce battery life, which they're considerate enough to warn about, as well as a warning about eye strain.
