Using the Samsung Galaxy S8 in 2021 – worth it?

Using the Samsung Galaxy S8 in 2021 – worth it?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are already 4 years old, and from the software side they feel it- but the hardware remains premium and the display gorgeous. How does the S8 hold up in 2021, and could it even be worth buying?

    I loved my galaxy s8, I would still be using it right now if I didn’t drop it down the stairs

  2. The Michael on September 30, 2021 at 6:40 am

    I still have mine and it’s fine. My carrier has been dangling the 21S for free if I trade mine in.

    Don’t root it. It’s still not worth it. It will have more problems. I tryed and i had to return to stock room but i triggerd the Knox and now i can’t use samsung pass for exemple, Can’t pay nfc with samsung pay etc…

  7. RESPECT on September 30, 2021 at 6:44 am

  9. Picture Me Rollin on September 30, 2021 at 6:46 am

    The phone that stole me from apple. Still using an S10 in 2021 and it’s great. Headphone jack and expandable memory I love you lol

  10. Eduard Ghenea on September 30, 2021 at 6:48 am

    For sure worth

  11. Defensive Wounds on September 30, 2021 at 6:49 am

    If you have the Gear VR headset, it is worth getting a cheap S8!

  12. Franciscy on September 30, 2021 at 6:50 am

    Just a heads up, if you’re buying the s8/+ in europe, then you get the Exynos 8895 which is a generally less capable chip than the snapdragon 835 as far as I can tell.
    I’ve been using my s8+ for the last 3 or 4 years but i’m finally switching to a oneplus 9. It is generally still a very capable phone, its just slightly sluggish in certain games and tasks for me now.

    Hey bro you forgot the best feature about this Samsung Galaxy it has Dex from within it turned into a pc like desktop when connect to a larger monitor or tv and have a Bluetooth as well mouse connected to the phone it work awesome I used that feature the Samsung Dex because I am a student and I like to have all my desktop feature like all in one with my phone bro

  14. Adam Jay on September 30, 2021 at 6:51 am

    I’m not leasing another phone ! Just gonna keep my busted up , cracked screen , corner chipped slow phone lol

  15. john m on September 30, 2021 at 6:52 am

    Its still a great phone, except the edges. I dont like those at all.

  16. Terica Anderson on September 30, 2021 at 6:53 am

    Im getting this phone next week. This will be my official 1st galaxy phone. I dont care how old it is, it still looks great to me

  17. Kronos Greek on September 30, 2021 at 6:56 am

    I just bought the s8+ a few months ago. I went from a j2 pro, I spent a little under 200 for a refurbished a quality. Is really nice tbh

  18. Mr T on September 30, 2021 at 7:00 am

    I have the S8+, the breezeless screen is awful! looks great but due to the fragility of the glass back you need a rubber case so you get the bezzel back. It makes the phone harder to use as you keep accidentally activating stuff you never asked for and it can be harder to press characters on the edge when typing.

  19. Marat Kurbanov on September 30, 2021 at 7:01 am

    One of the best models.

  20. jayson kent irinco on September 30, 2021 at 7:01 am

    Superb quality:)

  21. Jasdan Velásquez Mejía on September 30, 2021 at 7:03 am

    I am using this phone, right now, and every other day.
    It still holds up.

  22. David Haggerty on September 30, 2021 at 7:03 am

    Still have the S8+ and my wife has the S8. It was going good until the battery swelled up and the OS got buggy slow. I reset the phone and it went back to normal. I have a new battery on the way. The phone is still a great phone but the wife and I are getting close to upgrading. The display still looks great and I keep the phone in an otterbox so the phone looks brand new.

  23. Paul Jacob Virueda on September 30, 2021 at 7:03 am

    Watching this on my s8+

  24. Dmytro on September 30, 2021 at 7:04 am

    I’m a downgraded from Galaxy Note 20 Ultra to new one Galaxy S8

  25. Chawzee Folife on September 30, 2021 at 7:04 am

    S8 users! Where are you? 2021 and still the best phone.

  26. Josh M. on September 30, 2021 at 7:06 am

    The S8+ has been a great phone to me. I’ve been using it since launch but will be upgrading soon as Samsung has stopped supporting it with security updates.

  27. Denise McFarland on September 30, 2021 at 7:08 am

    I’m still using it! I take countless close-up pictures of minibeasts such as dragonflies and surprise all my friends with the sharpness and detail, scenery and people picks are very good too. I added extra storage as I take so many pictures – my actual camera is obsolete now! However, one corner of the phone is a little damaged, a screen protector is holding it all together. After watching your video, I’m not sure what I would get next, I like good value and don’t need too many gimmicks!

  28. John & Maria Walker on September 30, 2021 at 7:09 am

    Mine the power button is gone and Bixby gone too. And DeX not working too cuz something happen to USB port

  29. Martin Mwitila Jr on September 30, 2021 at 7:14 am

    I hate that the s8 has no updates, I mean just look at it

  30. Nate B on September 30, 2021 at 7:15 am

    As I watch on my S8 waiting for my 21 to arrive. This is the first time I’ve bought a new phone bc I wanted to, not needed to. Since it has a $12 trade in value, I’ve got a solid backup

  31. Jakob Porenta on September 30, 2021 at 7:16 am

    My old S5 looks better and still futuristic and feels better when holding it than the new phones

  32. KENT ROBINSON on September 30, 2021 at 7:16 am

    *MY SAMSUNG S-8 IS HAVING ISSUES*

  33. T M on September 30, 2021 at 7:17 am

    I still use an S8+ and my wife uses an S8. We both agree that it still feels like a modern phone and never lets us down unless you let the internal memory fill up too much. Other then that it still works great as a daily driver.

  34. Vesseven on September 30, 2021 at 7:18 am

    Does the Samsung Galaxy S8 have 4g or 5g ?

  35. Mohammad Yaseen on September 30, 2021 at 7:20 am

    Watching this video on my s8 using it since first release

  36. REGGAE BELTRAN on September 30, 2021 at 7:21 am

    my s8 is having software problem after 4 years :’ (((
    screen flickers every now and then

  37. Reza Fauzi on September 30, 2021 at 7:23 am

    I bought this phone since pre-ordered time until today I have no regret for the performance except the secondhand price went down so fast. Samsung please do not produce new product so fast 🙂

  38. Rudy Bos on September 30, 2021 at 7:25 am

    Replaced my S8 for the S20FE 2 weeks ago. The S8 is still a great phone and was working as expected, but please notice that there will be no security updates for this phone after 4 years! So banking on your phone is not longer recommended.

  39. echo solo on September 30, 2021 at 7:25 am

    I have used a s8 for like 3 years and it is showing its age, onscreen buttons have burned into screen also the game I play has burned the menu buttons into screen, kinda annoying.

  40. Attila Tóth on September 30, 2021 at 7:26 am

    Yes, still worth it!

  41. THIS IS #MAGA COUNTRY on September 30, 2021 at 7:27 am

    Only the Active is worth it.
    Getting 4 more as backups to future proof my communication needs.

  42. Harold Cotten on September 30, 2021 at 7:28 am

    My Galaxy 8 is great and battery last for couple days, which I don’t have it in my hand 24/7 like most people

  43. KENT ROBINSON on September 30, 2021 at 7:28 am

    *WHAT IS AN UPGRADE FROM THAT PHONE???*

  44. 91Tech on September 30, 2021 at 7:29 am

    The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have always been some of my favorite Androids, definitely sad to see them already 2 software versions behind. But still, the phones feel premium, and that display is as gorgeous as ever.

    Still watching from one now 😎
    I bought A12 new version last week and few days later I took it back. S8 it’s better in resolution and a lot faster even its nearly 4 years old now. ❤❤

  46. lifulo on September 30, 2021 at 7:31 am

    S8 in 2021? bro I’m still using my A8 and there’s hardly any reason to upgrade

  47. A.H.M. Asadul Huq on September 30, 2021 at 7:32 am

    I am using Galaxy S8 till now. I don’t have any other phone.

  48. Angelo Smiljanić on September 30, 2021 at 7:32 am

    I bought s8 2weeks ago for 50€🤪

  49. Aquarian Dreamer on September 30, 2021 at 7:33 am

    I actually have the S8 Active. Love the weight on this phone.

  50. Jony Be on September 30, 2021 at 7:34 am
