Dazzling, bezel-less Infinity display
Great camera

Irritating biometrics

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the best phone in the world for a few reasons, but none more so than the display: it makes every other handset on the market look positively antiquated.

The camera is still excellent, the screen quality the best that can be found right now and it's smashed through all our benchmarking tests. 

While it costs a lot to own, there are a lot of premium reasons for the premium price, and with the screen Samsung has managed to find some impressive innovation at a time when there's very little to be found in smartphones.

Also consider: Fancy even more screen? Then you'll want to check out the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus with its gigantic 6.2-inch offering. It too offers the bezel-less Infinity display design and exactly the same internals too. It is even more expensive though.
