  • No flat screen option
  • Nearly unusable fingerprint reader
  • Software stuffed with unnecessary features

A lot has been made of Samsung's need to redeem itself after last year's Galaxy Note 7 battery fiasco. The company itself hasn't shied away from acknowledging that it needs to earn customers' trust again. The mistakes it made were inexcusable, and the danger to lives and property was very real. But Samsung handled the situation as responsibly as any multinational giant could, made its investigations and remedial steps public, and swallowed losses equivalent to the entire worth of some of its competitors.

Samsung Galaxy S8+ Summary

If you want something a little larger than the Galaxy S8, this phone was made for you. Despite its phablet-sized screen, the narrow borders mean that this phone is quite easy to handle. Performance is outstanding, and camera quality is easily amongst the best available. Nearly every modern convenience you can think of is supported. The big screen is also better suited to games and movies. This is a great phone to show off, and it will certainly turn heads. We just wish that the fingerprint sensor wasn't in such an inconvenient position.

  • Phone is Garbage
    Terry Springer (Dec 5, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    This phone is encased in fragile glass front and back. Look at it sideways and it will crack. Drop it - you're done. It is absurd how fragile this phone is. Why buy a sleek attractive looking phone if you have to encase it inside a brick of a protective case in order to have any hope of it not instantly shattering?
