SAMSUNG GALAXY S8

The Samsung Galaxy is a phone that’s unlike anything you’ll have seen on the market. It’s just stunning.

It’s incredibly expensive in a world where mid-range phones are more than good enough to handle most tasks people like… but the second you pick it up it’s easy to see why.

The screen is just brilliant – the clearest, sharpest and offers lovely color reproduction to make movie watching a dream, and that’s before you’ve even got to the fact it’s wrapped into the chassis so hugely that it has a screen larger than the iPhone 7 Plus in a chassis that feels more like the iPhone 7.
