Locked down with hardware and software issues

Samsung only has three physical buttons on this phone. One is the "Bixby" button. Bixby is basically a poor version of Google assistant or Siri. The problem is that Samsung doesn't allow you to reprogram this button to do anything else. The button always opens Bixby, and will ignore a lock screen, often opening Bixby in your pocket. Bixby cannot be removed from the phone and disabling the shortcuts (swipe right from home screen, or hit "bixby button") is almost impossible. They make you agree to the terms of service and usage before you disable shortcuts. Its the locked down style you would expect from Apple, but not just software, hardware too. Samsung has attempted to get into the business of collecting data and using it to target ads and products. But this is a big fail. Forcing you to agree to terms and conditions does not reflect well on their respect for customer privacy. Secondly, when long pressing the home button, it takes you to google assistant. Which is also hard programmed onto the phone, and you must agree to their privacy police and terms/conditions before disabling the shortcut. The specs for this phone look good compared to other smartphones. But the user experience is poor due to the above issues. Spend some time in the store with this phone before you consider purchasing it, and more importantly consider other phones.

Great phone, poor quality screen

I have had my S8 for a week and love the phone. The only major drawback is that the screen is very susceptible to scratches. I actually scratched my screen while it was upside down on a table. Read other reviews on the screen before buying this phone!
