Back to being best

Samsung Galaxy Note8

from Notebookcheck
Samsung has again launched a superb product with the Galaxy Note 8 and there is no real alternative phablet for fans of the S Pen. The handset comes with an outstanding configuration. However, the manufacturer could have gladly been a bit more generous with the internal storage in view of the price... Full review

Once again clearly the top Samsung device of the year

Samsung Galaxy Note8

from GSMArena
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is the most expensive phone of the series yet, a fact you can't get around. Fact number two: it's the most versatile smartphone you can currently get. That alone should be enough to give the right users the right motivation. Or, you have to have a use for it to justify the asking price. Either way, the Galaxy Note8 will deliver the goods. And will do so in a way that very few phones, if any, can match... Full review

The best Note phone Samsung has made to date

Samsung Galaxy Note8

from Droid Life

The Galaxy Note 8 is a damn good phone, one that will surely make any owner happy. It’s packed full of every single goody an Android user would hope for and then some. It’s probably the best Samsung and the company’s fans could hope for following last year’s recall craziness. As someone who has been reviewing Galaxy Note phones for a few years now, I can say for sure that this is the best iteration we’ve seen to date. It has an insanely good camera experience, design that will have all of your friends talking, plus it doesn’t leave anything out in the nam... Full review

A true flagship smartphone powerhouse

Samsung Galaxy Note8

from Recombu
Once again Samsung has laden one of its most powerful smartphones with one of the best overall camera experiences available. Raw picture and video quality is excellent across the board and that sheer number of features and functions gives you room to get creative and edit all on one device... Full review

Come for the ruggedness, stay for the battery

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

from Android Central
Power users who are always hunting for the biggest possible battery will undoubtedly be drawn to the idea of a high-end phone like the Galaxy S8 with an extra-large 4000mAh battery. And yes, the Galaxy S8 Active provides that — it is, in terms of features, software and performance, every bit the same as a standard Galaxy S8. But in order to get that 4000mAh battery, you have to give up quite a bit of what makes the standard Galaxy S8 so appealing — primarily, its entire hardware design... Full review

No smoke, just fire

Samsung Galaxy Note8

from Recombu
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is unquestionably one of those devices that is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s not just a powerful tool or a capable multimedia machine, it’s a joy to use and it can do anything you’d expect any top-tier smartphone to do and so much more... Full review

A flagship for the clumsy and adventurous

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

from Talk Android
There’s a lot to love about the Galaxy S8 Active, mostly because there was a lot to love about the Galaxy S8. This variant doesn’t do anything radically different, so if you didn’t like the Galaxy S8, you won’t find anything here to really change your mind. If you liked the GS8 but wanted a bigger battery and a more rugged design, then this is going to be perfect for you... Full review

A gem of a smartphone

Samsung Galaxy S8+

from G Style Magazine
Even with its software faults, Samsung has crafted a gem of a smartphone with its Galaxy S8+. Its not hard to grasp, has nice viewing angles thanks to its edge to edge display and has sufficient battery and quick charging to accompany it. Using both the S8 and S8+ I prefer this model but if you want something a little smaller you can get the S8 as well as they are identical spec to spec... Full review

A superb budget phone

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)

from Alphr
The updated Galaxy J5 is a solid performer. Battery life exceeded our expectations, the new design is favourable over its predecessor, and its camera is impressive for a handset of this calibre... Full review

A greatest hits package from the godfather of phablets

Samsung Galaxy Note8

from The Guardian
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 feels like a greatest hits for the Note series. It has every feature that made previous Notes worth buying and slams them into the new Samsung smartphone design ushered in by the Galaxy S8, but as a consequence doesn’t feel particularly new or innovative compared to Samsung’s other smartphones...

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.
