Got bought this for 5.5k so am very pleased with it. Only minus s8 + is the finger pressure sensor behind the clumsy placed and so is the Bixby button that you can not decide on yourself.

I got my S8 + 21st April and have had it for a few weeks now. I'm from an iPhone 6S Plus and before it's a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. In recent years, I've switched between Android and iOS, because I like different elements on both systems. By switching to this mobile phone, I feel like I've lost some of the perfection apps and operating systems just an iPhone can offer. At the same time, I can easily conclude that I have received a good bag of features and features that only Samsung and Android can deliver. The reason I switched to the S8 + was the screen, camera and for the freedom Android offers. And here the review begins. Screen and camera have in all ways lived up to my high expectations. The screen is the best I've experienced personally. It's crisp, high resolution and reproduces colors in an excellent way. Even in direct sunlight, I can actually see what's on the screen. That the screen is in a class by itself makes it a pure pleasure to use the mobile in the daily. Camera both front and back is also top quality. Although Samsung has not made the biggest changes on the main camera from the Galaxy S7, this is still a camera that is very good. Front camera is also significantly upgraded. The autofocus on both cameras is fast and trusted. Focusing happens lightning fast and always happens, which is important when you see for a moment a moment ahead. Also, remember the screen you can see the pictures on afterwards. It's also hard not to be impressed by the way Samsung has taken over the throne regarding building quality and design. Personally, I love the design on this mobile phone. It feels exclusive and looks amazing with its curved screen and back. This phone has wow factor. In addition, both Google and Samsung have a refined operating system, which makes Android today feel better and faster than ever before. Here has been a lot since lately for my part. I also like the endless possibilities one can customize almost everything on the mobile. Here's glaring Android as always. Wireless charging also draws clear attention to my part. The battery life is quite ok and is comparable to my iPhone. I use a lot of mobile phone and need to charge my mobile at the end of the day. This is not impressive, but good enough. Samsung has unfortunately placed the fingerprint reader next to the camera behind. This is clumsy and my biggest irritation on my cell phone. With a cover and addiction, it still works as it should. I use the iris scanner (which scans your eyes to unlock the phone) as well as fingerprints, which allows me to choose the most practical, depending on the situation. Therefore, the safety works well daily, despite the exceptionally special location of the fingerprint reader. Bixby (Samsung's version of Siri and Google Assistant) is not fully released yet (lacking voice guidance). That it has got its own button on the left side of the phone, I think is a special choice of Samsung. It remains to be seen if this is a feature that will give the phone a little extra. As of today, I do not use the available Bixby features at all. Failing this, I suspect that the button will be able to be used to Google Assistant eventually, which can actually be cool. In summary, this is a phone I am very pleased with. Design, functionality and features impress greatly, which overthrows the little negative things I have pointed out. This phone is highly recommended.
