The best Android phone money can buy

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Reviewed
After Samsung's disastrous 2016, it would have been somewhat understandable if the company threw out everything and went back to the drawing board. Instead, the S8 is exactly what the S7 was and the S6 before that: a careful edit of Samsung's greatest hits, with just the right amount of innovation to up the ante. It's the best smartphone money can buy—at least until the next big thing takes its spot... Full review

Looks so pretty but hate the software

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Forbes
If you're a gadget geek with money to spend who really like having the prettiest, coolest looking sh*t, then you'll want the S8. But for just about everyone else -- like say for a middle-aged mom who only uses a phone for Facebook and Instagram -- nah, save the money or wait until the S8's price drops in about half a year...

Offers a generational leap in design, fit and finish

Samsung Galaxy S8+

from Canadian Reviewer
In terms of design and display technology, Samsung’s twin-towers hit the ball right out of the park. These are the most impressive and desirable handsets Samsung has ever made, and they are the flagship smartphones to beat right now with no challenger on the horizon until the next iPhone hits the market...

An engineering marvel as far as design is concerned

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Digit
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is definitely the best looking smartphone in the market today. It's fast and has a good camera too, but those are only incremental updates over its predecessor. Buy it if you want a phone that you can show off... Full review

Dazzles on the outside, but beauty is only skin deep

Samsung Galaxy S8+

from Digit
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus brings flagship class design and is finally a phone that doesn't look like all others. If that piques your interest, then this is the phone you should buy. It's one of the best smartphones out there today, but an incremental update in everything except design... Full review

Perfect entertainment... for a price

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7

from Pocket-lint
Of all the reasons to buy the Tab S3 it's the 9.7-inch AMOLED screen's great quality and brightness that comes out on top. Its ability to display HDR (high dynamic range) content gives it future-proofing to assure its place as the entertainment tablet king. It's just a shame there's no mobile HDR content available at present, which if you're buying this tablet as exactly that - a tablet - might negate your primary reason for opening your wallet quite so wide right now...

Amazing screen and fantastic camera

Samsung Galaxy S8

from AlphaBeatic
Flaws notwithstanding, the Galaxy S8 – available through most major Canadian wireless carriers – is a great smartphone that gets all the basics right. Assuming its battery doesn’t explode, or some other unforeseen catastrophe, it should do much to get Samsung past the Note 7 disaster... Full review

Samsung spoils perfection

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Forbes
When I think of the perfect smartphone, the Galaxy S8 comes very close. Its design sets this phone apart from anything we have seen to date, it’s slicker than the LG G6 and more stylish and practical and the Xiaomi MiMix. This is the future of phones. Behind this beauty is also brains. It’s durable, water resistant, has expandable storage and a really good camera. It fast charges, wireless charges, scans your iris and has both cutting edge chipsets and connectivity... Full review

The future of smartphones

Samsung Galaxy S8

from The Guardian
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the best smartphone available, full stop. It has raised the bar for top-end smartphone design, is one of the most future-proofed phones you can buy and squeezes a large selection of cutting-edge technology into a consumer-friendly package that anyone can use... Full review

The prettiest phone wins

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Gizmodo

What’s truly interesting about the S8 is just how compelling a phone can be on the merits of its great design alone. Bixby is basically rubbish, and yet the phone is a winner. Perhaps it shouldn’t be all that surprising: Top flagship phones with beefy specs are going to perform very well without fail these days. They all have good cameras and day-long battery life and processors that can chop through huge mobile games. It’s so challenging to make a device stand out that manufacturers are employing all manner of gimmicks, like voice assistants and modular accessories, to se... Full review

I have had mine for about 6 months and the screen has already gone out.  I have resisted getting a touch phone for a long time after the last one I had went out in three months.  As I need this phone for work this is a big disappointment.

***Is Samsung Bankrupt?*** After the Note 7 disaster and replacement phones, customers are left on the hook for any future issues. Warranties do not transfer over to replacement phones... After speaking with a high-level Samsung Executive the only solution is to take your phone for a 10-day diagnostic, leaving you with nothing. When asked about a loaner phone for the customers that have been through all the headaches of Note 7 Samsung Executive hides behind policies saying "It is Samsungs policy not to give loaner phones" when asked to see the policy on exploding cell phones there was no comment. Which leads me to ask did the flagship Note 7 sink Samsung???

The phone lacks sufficient space for anything. The screen is terrible unless the brightness is high. It is a totally fragile phone without a good case.

Bought Convoy 4 three months ago. It would go in and out of service when I was sitting in the house. The wallpaper would change on its own. It would lose my pictures and videos. If you take the batter or sim card out and put it back in the pix returned, but this happened every day. The time shown when you first opened the phone was the time that you previously opened the phone, not the current time. I took the phone back to the store and they sent for a replacement. I have had the replacement for 4 days. It doesn't go in and out of service but it has all the other problems and a few more. After transferring contacts, I had several listed as unknown. All my frequently called numbers were not transferred. I input the missing numbers, but when I get texts from those people it states unknown. When I open the phone it doesn't show the main screen, but some nuance screen with a voice. Then it goes to a menu until I press ok before the main screen comes on. I have tried to change this, but nothing seems to work. When I get a text it reads it to me. I don't want a talking phone in public. How do I turn it off? I am going back to the phone store tomorrow.

I dropped it after a week

Samsung Galaxy J5

I have had a Sansumg Galaxy Ace for years dropped it loads of times without problem, it was built like a tank. The Sansumg J5 is very plasticy, it slipped out of my hands, it was not a heavy fall it did not even mark the phone, now the screen is blank despite trying to reset it.
