Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Review

After the public release of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, I had to see what all the excitement was about…

I was not disappointed.  While at first the lack of the traditional home button took a little getting used to (less than a second), I will have to say that this phone may very well indeed redeem Samsung.  From the beautifully designed handset (I got the S8+), which fits perfectly in your hand, to the large Infinity display, which has a rich and vibrant look to it, right down to the actual speed and battery time (mine lasts a day and a half on normal usage).  The phone is an absolute joy to use, the camera is fantastic, there isn’t much more to say.

Now, moving on to a couple negatives…
The new personal assistant called Bixby, is pre-installed on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, however at the time of the phone’s release to the public, Bixby Voice has not yet been completed.  All other functions of Bixby are included, but the voice portion of the assistant has not yet been implemented.  From what sources at Samsung are saying, it looks as if the latter part of Spring will bring voice to Bixby.  Until then, plenty to enjoy with this great new device.
