Best phone I've ever owned
I got the S8+ a week before Thanksgiving thanks to the battery on my previous phone, HTC 10, dying. Where the S8+ really stands out is in the hardware. This phone feels like it's 5 years worth of hardware updates over my previous phone even though it's only a year newer. Samsung screens are quite simply the best. I'm glad that I returned the Pixel 2 XL when it came out because this screen blows it away. On top of that, I've been surprised at how amazing the battery life has been on this phone.

It's easily been the best I've ever had on a phone and I've had the Motorola Droid Maxx in the past. I've never had a Samsung phone with Touchwiz on it (only other Samsung I've owned was the Galaxy Nexus) so I can't speak to past software experiences with Samsung, but the S8+ is great! I have it set up so it feels pretty close to stock. With this phone I feel like I get all of the best features of Android except it doesn't have a removeable battery, which no new Androids do anymore. I had also thought about the Note 8 but I don't have a need for the S-Pen and this phone was over $100 less expensive for pretty much the same screen. All in all I have no regrets on this purchase and I'd definitely recommend the S8+.
