The ultimate 2020 Review of Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is an older model, having been launched in 2017.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good; since the price is in line with that of the competitors, it is a good choice, but there are cheaper models at the same quality level.

Main results

The Samsung Galaxy S8 arrived on the market with Android 7.0. In the meantime it has received updates and Android 9 is now available. Although new versions of Android have been released, this version is still fairly recent.
The 5.8″ screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
The battery of Samsung Galaxy S8 is standard: in our usage scenario, its 3000 mAh allow it to reach 26 hours, which is a value in the average.
The 52.3 GB of actual available internal memory (64 GB declared) may be enough to store our data, if not, we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
One of its weaknesses is the fragility: in fact it has not passed the drop test.
Like most of the models in this price range, this mobile phone is very powerful, so it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: the presence of the fingerprint reader and being water resistant.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.


Samsung Galaxy S8 has a 12 Mp rear camera, which allows you to obtain excellent quality photos in all light conditions.
This mobile phone has an 8 MP front camera, which allows you to take good quality selfies.

✔️ Pros

  • The photos taken with the rear camera are of good quality
  • The version of the operating system is quite recent
  • Its performances are above average
  • It is resistant to immersion in water for short periods

❌ Cons

  • This model has no real weaknesses
