Samsung Galaxy S8 after 2 Months (Almost Great with One Flaw)

  • Added:  2 months ago
  • In this video, I will share my thoughts on Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ after 2 months of using it as my daily driver.

    Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are fantastic smartphones and I would like to highlight some high points of this phone, as well as one low point.

    Let's dive in.

    Awesome review, I have to ask do you work in the tech industry? What do you do ? You seem very in depth in your knowledge.

    Give the S7 Edge a chance. When you talk about it's battery, you got to acknowledge it over S8 and S8+. Until now, nobody can beat it's battery not even the up coming Note 8.

    I absolutely love that you have always done things your way. No loop music sounding like garbage trying to fit in to the over paid commercial copy cat reviewers. I've thought about over the years doing some myself but never have. I have done so much with each phone that released since 2010. That is when I got hooked on smartphones. The rooting went on for a while custom roms etc until few years ago that they make decent handsets I feel no real need other than mods. Thanks man.

    I sold my s7 edge just to buy the s8 simple as that I was very satisfied with my edge nougat brought stuff ok cameras ok great but now I bought the s8 I am more satisfied just because the size is big but the overall phi e is small 5.8" in a body for 5.5 or so the other is well known stuff so that's all

    I've had an s7 Edge for 9 months now, it has done me great, but on the 7th month it started to lag and stutter pretty often. Could be because i never clear cache or reboot it... but I'm about to get the S8 but im afraid its going to be a bit stuttery and laggy which points me to the iPhone for better software but the iPhone just is boring,, not a lot of customization and looks outdated. So idk what i should go for fast software/boring phone or amazing looks and camera/display and ok software

    So when are TV’s and tablets going to get bezel-less displays? Apple’s newest iPad Pro models still have a bezel, even if it’s thin. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S3 and lower end phones still have a home button, even though they said they’re getting rid of it.

    Lots of phones have rear fingerprint sensors. Honor 6X, Nexus 6P, Alcatel Idol 5S, Honor 8, etc.

    I have an S8 as my daily driver. I love the features available but Verizon cripples the full functionality of the Device Maintenance app. I did use the Samsung + app as you have suggested in a previous video and it gives me a little more of the functionality that the Device Maintenance app has. Overall my S8 experience has been awesome and I have used developer options to dial down animations to zero whice does help with some of the lag. As a left handed person, I find it easier to use the fingerprint sensor, but underneath the camera / heart rate sensor would be a less awkward spot.

    I'm using s8(not s8+) because s8+ is to big for the pocket and for my hands. I love everything ​ about this phone except 2 things : 1.the price 2.i can't find proper glass screen protector that will stick to my screen. I use case all the time so it's the case who peels of the screen protector. But aside from that the phone is apsolutely beautiful. There is probably phone with better camera (Pixel and U11) and better free-of-lag phone (IPhone 7) but there is now better complete phone than the s8. When you put him next to the pixel, iPhone, HTC, s8 looks like a phone from year 2025. Thank you for your videos I really enjoy the information you're giving

    Using S8 and love it. Still waiting for the Note but not liking some of the schematics I'm hearing about like the glass will not be as curved and the phone will be more square... So, as much as I want a Note, I'm not sure this one will cut it... Especially with no front facing fingerprint scanner. The specs don't seem much better than the S8, which is disappointing and aside from the camera (and I seldom if ever take pictures) there's nothing to get excited about.

    I got the S8+ Love it but since I'm what you consider a Heavy user...from games to apk use and streaming I got to say it's Good(Great, if I had a better service provider) and it offers a lot of user experience overall. I could say I am Satisfied with my care Lol but I'm running on a very limited provider hence some of my service glitch issues but if you reboot the phone once a week it helps and is my number #1 daily driver besides my Old LG G3...can't wait to see what the Note has to offer

    Our old style telephone network just closed down and with it went the service to my old LG flip phone with no data plan so I was forced to upgrade and I chose the largest screen available with the latest technology so it would last a while so the S8+. I have a huge learning curve now so I appreciate all "how to" video's posted. I appreciate your finger print explanation - can we enable both - a pin or a fingerprint or does it have to be only consistently one form of security? I also bought a wallet style holder so it would stay nice after sliding it in and out of my purse when I go somewhere. But so far so good - I have only had it just over a week.

    Love your vids! You have lots of great information, well stated and clear. Thanks!!! I am moving to the s8+ from the Note edge and am wondering which case you consider the best. I tend to be a minimalist (use a body glove on the present phone) that will help with that dreaded fingerprint reader.

    Nice video...I'm using as a daily driver the iPhone 7Plus 256GB in black, but since the wife got a new Samsung galaxy S 8, and I've seen the specs and that gorgeous screen and camera; been doing some comparisons also, I'm thinking of jumping ship & going for the S8 Plus. I had done this when the Note 7 came, I got one and thoughly enjoyed it until was forced to turn it in; went back to the iPhone 6splus at that time. So, now that the kinks are out, I'll try that Galaxy S8+ and see how things go..👍

    Am a proud owner of the Samsung galaxy s8 plus. Using it for 3 days by now. bought it mainly cause of it's stunning gorgeous infinite display. it's my daily diver nowdays. previously was using the one plus 3t. loved the super fast dash charging in that which am surely missing a bit in my galaxy s8plus

    S8+ is my daily but had my Moto Z Play not taken a swim it would likely still be my primary. The camera was shit on it but man the battery life just puts everything else to shame (even the S8+). 2 day battery life on its' own was not uncommon with decent use and with the battery mod pack up to 3.5 days wasn't even out of the ordinary. Absolutely fucking insane. Lag and stutter free too due to the near-stock interface and absence of bloat. Certainly not the most top end specs especially next to an S8 but you wouldn't think it if you hadn't read a spec sheet. Honestly if the design weren't so ugly, the camera wasn't so mediocre, and it had ip68 I would have been content with never upgrading. I considered it the perfect phone otherwise.

    Why don't you setup the Iris Scanner at the front and train it with your sunshades on and off. That way, you can easily log-in during those situations where the fingerprint scanner is not convenient.

    I've had my LG G4 for 2 years now and it is still getting the job done for me. I'm planning on getting a new phone later this year. The S8+ is on my list of possible purchases. I want to wait, however, until Apple releases the next iPhone so I can do some comparison shopping.
