"amazing phone"

It is a gorgeous mobile with industry-leading screens, excellent and reliable (front, rear) cameras, all day batteries, waterproof and dustproof, fast wireless charging, Bluetooth 5.0! The disadvantage is that it won't receive software updates in time, and the location of the fingerprint scanner is a small setback.

It's hard to choose your next cellphone, because there are a lot of good choices today, and potentially good handsets will be available later this year . Now you may have seen one million reviews of S8, but it won't make decisions easier. Here are my suggestions:

Cons:
1. The edge screen is beautiful, but annoying in two cases. It creates little visual distortion ,less than S7 edges though. It's also difficult to hang your phone in the air and face down , because the phone is prone to cause side touches.Maybe a case solves the problem , but I don't love to put a case in such a beautiful phone .

2. Samsung is not very good with software updates. If you get a great deal of pleasure from trying new Android in time, it's impossible for you. That is to say, new software updates often slow down on the phone.

3. The location of the fingerprint scanner has been mentioned many times. Yes, I hope it's in the front. No, it's really not bad on S8. We have called Iit "muscle memory". It took me two days to correct the new location. Now I have no problem. If you really hate it, try to use recognition or iris scanners, they are very good .

4. The glass back of the phone is prone to cracking, so be careful if you're all clumsy.

5. S8 doesn't have good battery life. It needs recharging once a day. If you need a day, look elsewhere.

6. Some people are disappointed by the lack of dual cameras. As far as I am concerned, the rear camera is wide enough that I rarely need wide angle lenses ,such as LG. Optical zoom is also good ,just like iPhone + 7, but not a problem for me .

Pros :
1. Aesthetics of the future bezelless all-screen mobile. This does not really improve the functionality of the phone, but is somewhat pleased with the experience of the future.

2. The screen is so beautiful, there is no competition here. The display is always useful.

3. Today, it is the only mobile phone that meets all your requirements: excellent rear camera and front camera, waterproof and dustproof, wireless charging , all day long battery life, a headset jack, a Micro SD card slot, a fingerprint scanner, and the Bluetooth 5.0!

4. Bluetooth 5.0 is amazing. S8 was the first phone to come with it , and that was great. I often use the ability to instantly connect to two different speakers, for the surround sound experience around my room . By connecting two different headphones, you can also listen to the same music in your library with your friends .

5. S8 is also the first phone to come with Gigabit LTE, which is nice for future-proofing the phone, but doesn't it help us?

It's a really nice phone, highly recommended.

    You need to aim for 500 words minimum for a tech review like this. One of these devices is going to set you back a pretty penny and the review needs to be sufficient to sway a purchasing decision.
