Update (2/16):With the Samsung Galaxy S9 just around the corner, we thought this would be a fun time to take a look back at our review for the current S8 family. After all, soon this will be a highly discounted model making it a potential purchase for those looking for a great phone but wishing to same some serious cash in the process.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge might have been two of the best phones ofbut the well-documented issues faced by the Galaxy Note 7 have cast a shadow over Samsung’s mobile efforts. From two fantastic smartphones to a phone that would have been near-perfect had it not spontaneously caught fire, was a year to remember and forget for Samsung, and its next flagship was always going to come under intense scrutiny.

Don&#;t miss: Where to buy the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus

Ahead of its Unpacked event last month, Samsung flooded media with advertising designed to begin the painstaking process of rebuilding the customer faith that took years to accumulate.

Then came the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, two phones that push the boundaries further than ever before, but do they offer enough?

In previous years, Samsung’s Galaxy S flagship(s) would almost certainly be the best phones of the year, but this year LG, Huawei, and Sony have all bought their very best to the market, and Samsung’s issues have presented a rare chink in its armor.

Do the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus continue past trends of being the best Android smartphones? Find out in our Samsung Galaxy S8 review!

About this Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S8 review:

To bring our readers, and viewers, the most comprehensive review experience possible, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus were reviewed by two different members of Android Authority.

While Joshua Vergara put together the video linked above, I, Nirave Gondhia, put together the in-depth written Samsung Galaxy S8 review encompassing both of our opinions to provide the definitive Android Authority view on Samsung&#;s latest flagship.

We have both been testing international versions of the Galaxy S8 with model number GF on build number ending 1AQC9 running Androidwith the March  security updates.

Our usage with the Galaxy S8 Plus (model number GU on build number ending 1AQD9) was limited to only a few days and we’ll be following up this review with additional testing around the battery, display, and performance in the coming days.


Over the past few years, Samsung has transitioned away from its plastic past to a refinement of its glass and metal build, and the Galaxy S8 presents the future of this design language.

There’s two sizes to the Galaxy S8 but neither comes with an Edge moniker, with Samsung calling its taller curved screens the Infinity Display. The focus with this year’s phones isn’t the curved display however, but more so how Samsung has managed to squeeze so much screen real estate into the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

Thanks to the switch to a format and the removal of the home button and Samsung branding on the front, we have phones that feel a lot smaller than they should.

We have phones that feel a lot smaller than they should

Think back to previous phones with displays of inches or larger and they felt great at the time, but even the Galaxy Note 7 feels positively large compared to Samsung’s latest flagships.

The inch display inside the Galaxy S8 comes inside a body that’s slightly taller but narrower than the Galaxy S7 ( x mm vs x mm). Similarly, the Galaxy S8 Plus is a little taller and wider than the Galaxy S7 Edge ( x mm vs x mm) despite a screen that’s inches smaller.

Both phones are a little thicker at 8 mm and mm respectively, but the difference is negligible compared to the much better in-hand experience.

The added screen real estate sees a bump in the weight as well, at grams and grams respectively, but this helps the Galaxy S8 feel more premium in the hand.

Moving around the phone, the volume keys are on the left and the power button on the right, as with previous Samsung phones. The left sees the addition of a dedicated shortcut for Bixby and Bixby Home, Samsung’s new AI assistant, which we’ll touch on later.

Up top is the SIM card tray while on the bottom, you’ve got the headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and single bottom-firing speaker.

The back is where Samsung has made arguably the worst design decision on the Galaxy S8; removing the home button means Samsung had to find a place for the fingerprint sensor and they chose to combine it with the heart rate monitor next to the rear camera.

While other OEMs have chosen to put fingerprint sensors in the center of the device, Samsung’s decision means it can have its logo right underneath the camera, but as a result, the fingerprint sensor is cumbersome to use.

The position doesn’t feel natural and on the regular Galaxy S8, it’s a stretch with large hands, while on the Galaxy S8 Plus, it’s awkward unless you have very large hands.

As you’ll often be fumbling blindly to find the fingerprint sensor, you may end up with fingerprints on the camera lens itself, so Samsung has included a reminder when you launch the camera to wipe it down.

The location of the fingerprint sensor does render a very good sensor near-useless

Being forward-thinking and attempting to redefine the meaning of a big phone isn’t without its challenges, and while Samsung has made an excellent attempt, the location of the fingerprint sensor does render a very good sensor near-useless.

However, thanks to other biometric options, it’s a small compromise for what is one of the best-designed smartphones ever made.

Thanks to a taller screen, the removal of the home button, and bezels that are slimmer than ever, Samsung has managed to put a bigger screen in a footprint that’s barely bigger than last year.

Samsung is known for making stunning smartphones and the Galaxy S8 is its best yet, ushering in a new era of smartphone design and laying down a marker for Samsung’s rivals.


All of this leads to what we’ve come to expect from Samsung displays – an extremely vivid Super AMOLED display that punches colors harder than before and is a joy to use.

Rated as one of the first HDR-capable smartphones, the Galaxy S8 screen ups the brightness and color saturation of the screen when viewing content like YouTube and apps that support HDR, such as Netflix.

It’s a noticeable improvement when switching in and out of the app, but it means that the Galaxy S8 offers the best mobile entertainment experience on a smartphone to date.

The aspect ratio means Samsung has managed to pack more pixels into its display, with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus both offering displays at x pixels.

On the Galaxy S8, this translates to a pixel density of pixels per inch, while on the Galaxy S8 Plus this is a little lower at pixels per inch.

The additional pixels mean a taller display overall, but there is some pillar-boxing when watching widescreen content so you’ll have black bars on the sides.

You might find the bars distracting for most media content, but you can force apps to full screen mode either through the display settings menu or by tapping the icon in the recent apps menu.

Out of the box, both phones come with the display scaled down to Full HD+, but you can tweak this and things like color saturation in the display settings.

Samsung has found a way to preserve the original unlocking experience of previous Galaxy devices

The removal of the home button means a switch to soft keys, but Samsung has included a pressure sensitive area near the bottom of the display which vibrates when pressed hard enough and can be used for unlocking the phone when it’s asleep.

Samsung has found a way to preserve the original unlocking experience of previous Galaxy devices, but the soft keys work well enough that you may almost forget the pressure sensitive button exists.

On-screen keys allow you to swap the position of the &#;recent apps&#; and &#;back&#; keys, but unlike with other manufacturers, there’s no option to add an additional key for the notification menu.

Running the Galaxy S8 display through our testing, we found the screen has a max brightness of nits with auto brightness turned off and nits with it turned on.

During sunlight we found a visible punch in the brightness and although the display isn&#;t technically the brightest, it is definitely pleasing to the eye. With a color accuracy of Kelvin, the Galaxy S8 doesn&#;t have the most accurate display in its default out-of-the-box state, and has a warm tone, but with all of these effects turned off, the display is the closest we&#;ve come to the ideal temperature of K with a temperature of K.

Overall, the addition of so much real estate is a more than welcome trade-off to Samsung removing the home button and much of the experience remains the same otherwise, including the Edge UX and Always On Display, which have a couple of actionable additions.

Past Samsung devices have always sported great looking displays, but the Galaxy S8 is in a class of its own and offers one of the most immersive experiences on a smartphone to-date.


As the latest Samsung flagship, you can expect the latest processing package and the Galaxy S8 doesn’t fail to deliver.

Depending on your market, you can either expect the latest Exynos 10nm chipset or the Snapdragonboth coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of on-board storage, which is expandable via a microSD card. The Exynos version comes with the Mali-G71 MP8 GPU while the Snapdragon has the Adreno GPU.

As you might expect, there are no performance concerns with the processing stack that powers the Galaxy S8.

During our Samsung Galaxy S8 review process we’ve noticed no issues with performance in applications or while gaming. When running Super Mario Run and Jade Empire – which are both heavy mobile games – there were no issues with dropped frames or lag.

The Galaxy S8 also powers the DeX, Samsung&#;s new docking accessory that allows you to turn your Galaxy S8 into a full desktop computer.

It’s testament to the processing power of both chipsets that they’re able to deliver a full desktop experience with little more than a couple of small hiccups and ever so slight latency when recognizing the input from a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

When the iris scanner can see your eyes unobstructed, it is lightning fast

The only noticeable performance issue I personally experienced is with the iris recognition which, like on the Galaxy Note 7, fails to work properly if you wear glasses.

Samsung warns you to remove glasses or contact lenses when setting up the iris recognition, but this means you’ll have to either look over the top of your glasses or lift them up for iris recognition to be useful. Josh hasn’t had any issues with this, so it might be an issue with my handset and when the iris scanner can see your eyes unobstructed, it is lightning fast.


As you might expect, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus come equipped with a heavy hardware stack which includes expandable storage, a bit audio DAC, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a plethora of connectivity options.

You can connect to two Bluetooth speakers or headphones at the same time and play audio through both simultaneously

The Galaxy S8 is also one of the first phones to support Bluetooth 5, which brings with it a much longer range and the ability to have an active connection with two different devices.

In the real world, this means you can connect to two Bluetooth speakers or a speaker and headset at the same time and play audio through both simultaneously.

Right next to the USB Type-C port on the bottom of the phone is the single bottom-firing speaker and the headphone jack. The loudspeaker has the same issues that are inherent to its design, mainly a tinny sound, and overall, it’s decent at best.

Samsung’s acquisition of Harman Kardon should eventually result in much better audio, but it likely came too late for the speakers on the Galaxy S8.

However, with the headphone jack, Samsung has taken a different approach by focusing on headphones instead of including a third-party DAC or built-in amp.

Instead, they’ve included a pair of high-quality earphones made by AKG, and while we have a full review of these headphones coming soon, we can say they are significantly better than the headphones included with any other phones.

The headphones are surprisingly &#;bassy&#; for small earphones and feature a premium feeling design that includes a fabric cable and in-line controls.

Diving deep into the sound settings, there’s a bunch of equalizer toggles that can be used to cater the audio experience to your preferences. There’s an Adapt Sound tutorial that helps you tune the output to your own ears and the result is a headphone experience that manages to be surprisingly deep for the average user.

Given what’s happened in a short-space of time, we expect Samsung’s acquisition of Harman Kardon to result in a vastly improved audio experience on future flagships.

Battery life

The biggest issue facing Samsung with the Galaxy S8 is the fear that still resides from the Galaxy Note 7’s batteries catching fire spontaneously. Personally, I think the company has played it a little safe with the battery capacity inside its new flagships, in a bid to prevent any issues with the battery.

Rather than stretch the boundaries like they did with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has opted for the rather safe capacities of 3, mAh for the Galaxy S8 and 3, mAh for the Galaxy S8 Plus.

This means the Galaxy S8 battery is the same size as the Galaxy S7, while the Galaxy S8 Plus is slightly smaller than the 3, mAh battery found inside the Galaxy S7 Edge.

The Galaxy S8 battery life has proven to be on par with most flagships, but not spectacular

Over the past two weeks, the Galaxy S8 battery life has proven to be on par with most flagships, but not spectacular.

During an average hour work day, the Galaxy S8 offered around 4 hours of screen-on-time for Josh, and on occasion, this stretched to five hours. In comparison, the battery life for me offered around to 4 hours of screen on time from a to hour work day.

TouchWiz gives you lots of different power saving features and combined with the Super AMOLED display, you can stretch out the battery life even further.

As mentioned before, our time with the Galaxy S8 Plus has been limited, so we’re not able to comment on the battery life yet.

However, we’ll be publishing the results of our battery testing for both phones in the coming week. From real world usage with the regular Galaxy S8, it’s clear that the battery life will vary according to your usage, but we seldom had to top the phone up before bedtime.


Samsung has refined its camera over the past few generations of its phones to produce what is arguably the all around best smartphone camera on the market.

The Galaxy S8 camera may not be heavily changed from the Note 7, and even the Galaxy S7 Edge before it, but enhancements in the overall picture taking experience mean Samsung’s legacy of high quality photography continues.

The big changes in the cameras come at the front, where Samsung has included an 8 MP shooter with a Smart Autofocus system.

Autofocus is not something found too often on front-facing cameras and selfies benefit from the higher megapixel count, resulting in good photos in most lighting conditions. In low light, the pictures lose some sharpness as the shutter requires more time, but this is expected, especially from a camera that lacks image stabilization.

The main camera is a 12 MP shooter with large dual pixels, f/ aperture, optical image stabilization, phase detection autofocus, and an LED flash.

The interface is largely like before, prioritizing swipes and certain gestures to keep shooting simple and as easy to use in one-hand as possible.

There are no new modes in the camera, though there is the addition of p recording at 60 frames per seconds for smooth video recording. Video recording also sees the addition of manual controls in the Pro mode, including manual focus for finer control over the focus of your videos.
