Where to buy Samsung Galaxy S8 ?

PROSHand-friendly design. Gorgeous screen. Best processor and modem available.
CONSAwkward fingerprint scanner placement. Dual voice assistants may get confusing.
BOTTOM LINEThe Samsung Galaxy S8 is a gorgeous big-screen phone with a comfortable single-handed feel. And it's packed with top-notch components and promising new software.

Apart from the irritating performance of the biometrics and the high price, the Galaxy S8 is a phone that offers an exceptional experience for any user. The large screen is a real turning point in flagship phone design and should usher in the end of large bezels, and the camera and slick performance work brilliantly under the finger. It commands a premium price, but make no mistake: this is a truly premium phone.

The Good The best-looking phone around crushes it in performance, battery life, water-resistance and wireless charging. An external storage slot lets you keep more photos, videos and music.
The Bad Its awkwardly placed fingerprint reader leads to camera smears and longer unlock times, which is aggravating when you use it to unlock your phone dozens of times a day.
The Bottom Line The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
