It is a well known fact that bezel less Galaxy S8 is the best smartphone to date from Samsung. Almost everyone has appreciated it’s stunning looks & buttery smooth performance. Now a report confirms this claim by providing rating from Galaxy S8 reviews highest among the early adopters of the phone in the US.
A report from industry tracker provides an analysis based on 1500 reviews received in first 40 days after its April launch. The early adopters, in the USA, have given this phone an average rating of 4.7.
Samsung Galaxy S8 reviews have been mostly positive from the beginning. The two features of Galaxy S8 – Infinity display & camera have attributed in this success. Display of the Galaxy S8 really stands out from all the smartphones to date. It’s bezel less, edge-to-edge display, to which Samsung calls ‘infinity display’ is indeed stunning. Camera of Galaxy S8 is an improvement over S7 camera. It is this camera whose stunning clicks have been mentioned in most of the reviews.
However, Bixby received a somewhat negative feedback from US consumers. It may be because everyone is accustomed to using Google Now on Tap/ Google Assistant. Also, Bixby adopted to English language very late. And by that time users tried to set dedicated Bixby button some other app/ action. Which Samsung later tried to snub by providing updates to S8.
