The Samsung Galaxy S8 is undoubtedly the most beautiful smartphone on the market today. It is fast and has a good camera, but these are only incremental updates compared to its predecessor. Buy it if you want a phone that you can show off.


Samsung really wants its flagship phone to stand out. Given the limitations of the industry, you can’t do this with internal hardware, but you can make innovations in design. Samsung has been there for three years and this is the closest to perfection. Do you know what they say? Perfection does not exist. Despite the impressive design of the Samsung Galaxy S8, holes are also opening up.

SEO and trends dictate that we review the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + separately, but frankly, they are the same smartphones. The differences are small, so for this review I will only point out the things that are different. You can read the rest in the Galaxy S8+ review.

Build and Design

Smaller, lighter, but as curved and slippery as the Galaxy S8+. This is the best way to describe the Galaxy S8. We also had the midnight black variant, and yes, it has a certain affinity for fingerprints. To be honest, it doesn’t bother me personally, as it still feels excellent to hold and as exclusive as possible.

This means that I can not get over the fact that there is a lot to break on this phone. Gorilla Glass 5 is tough, but it’s still glass that can be broken. Considering that it has glass on both sides, the use of a matter is justified. But this means that you will lose the excellent design language and ergonomics.

Speaking of ergonomics, I recommend that you take a risk and use it. The back of the Galaxy S8 is slippery, but its wide and narrow body provides excellent grip. I did not even feel the phone slipping out of my hands, although I woke up in the morning with sleepy eyes and turned off the alarm clock.


I said in the Galaxy S8 + note that the placement of the buttons on this phone was cumbersome, and here it is exactly the opposite. Depending on which hand you hold it with, the on/off button falls right under your thumb/index finger. The volume control and the Bixby button are easy to reach even without moving the handle.

The Home, Back and Recent buttons on the screen work fine, and the phone is narrower than the Galaxy S8, so your finger can easily swipe across the screen. Apps like Asphalt 8 use the 18.5:9 aspect ratio, so you can use the pressure-sensitive Home button more often. Explanation: The Galaxy S8 has a pressure-sensitive home button just below the screen version. You can always tap here to get home.
