    No, you are the one that can keep spinning it to your liking to keep telling to yourself that you did the correct thing by returning your phone. I don't need that, as a grown man I take my own decisions, I don't need to see videos or people telling me what to do, or what is good or not.

    BTW, did you really see the video and the "18 minutes" of the no likes? because if you did it, then you are not realizing how weak is your argument as the no likes are, price, FP magnet, no removable battery, Bixby Button, no IR sensor, FP sensor location, no stereo speaker and the same things that EVERYBODY should know already before buying the phone or since it was announced by Samsung last month. If you still bought it knowing all that, then the problem is not Samsung's, it's you.
    Ok. Great. I'm not telling you what you should or shouldn't do, nor is Flossy, nor is anyone else. I don't know where that came from.

    Good god, if anything negative is said about the S8s, it's like I personally insulted you. It's a phone, for heaven's sake.

    If you've actually been following what I've been saying about the S8s, I never once talked about the lack of removable battery or the lack of IR sensor. And yes, the Bixby button is useless right now.

    His real reviews are long... but he's being thorough and people that are thinking of buying and spending $900... I think they like the time went into it. I understand if you say too long. But too bad too long for you... he did say it was his daily driver over his Pixel XL so it's not because he hates the phone.
    I never once complained that the video was too long.

    Spoiler coming, you can sum up his super long video with a comment he made in the first couple of minutes. He said the pixel XL had been his favorite Android phone, now,"The Galaxy S8 Plus is my new favorite Android phone."
    Nice...someone who pays attention to detail.

    Yeah, I heard that. But then he went into a long list of things he didn't like about the S8+ right after that. For 18 1/2 minutes.

    And?

    i love Flossy Carters reviews also (and especially White Shoes : ) but in regards to THIS phone i kinda don't get HOW he can give it a major "Go" when citing all the negatives. Yes, you MAY be well aware of them if you followed the announcement, but that doesn't prevent the feeling like, "this phone could have been so much better"...

    At least for me, i returned mine due to about 50% of the negatives he stated, my MAIN one being the "fingerprint mess" it became within minutes. And i don't what's up with either the oleophobic coating (or lack there of) or the increased amount of polymers in GG5, but the S8 Plus was the FIRST Samsung phone that i encountered the front facing glass getting filled with fingerprints within seconds that were difficult for me to wipe off.

    I'm usually in pretty much agreement with Flossy's Pros & Cons list, but i just don't get how he considers a $900$ phone that so many have so been eagerly awaiting...- (AND, might i add, this isn't just ANY flagship, in light of the Note 7 debacle, this should have, "set the bar" for 2017 & beyond going forward) How can have it have so many shortcomings and he score it so high?!

    Flossy, has White Shoes been sharing his catnip with you?!

    Because there is no perfect phone, regardless of price. If we all made phone purchase decisions based on negatives only, we'd never own a phone. Name any phone and I can tell you at least five things that annoy me, even though I still may love it.

    You find a phone that gets the closest to what will work for you on the daily.

    For some it will be Samsung, FPS be damned. For others it will be something else. That's how it always works.

    Hey Johnny! you speak the truth, for sure we wouldn't buy ANYTHING....

    however, the point i'm making is that, "a phone THAT expensive shouldn't require so much compromise"...

    And yes, i'm yakking about price YET AGAIN, but sheeesh, i'm still smartin' from the $230.00 charge on my credit card and the 30 bucks showing up on my EIP till T-Mo processes my return, so yeah, the price of the S8+'s cost is STILL the number one thing about it that bugs me. IF it just had a better casing that masked fingerprints and a killer (meaning BETTER than, "really good") camera i could have forgiven any of the, "shoulda woulda couldas" it didn't have, but for THAT price? ouch!

    I paid $800 total due to Best Buy promo and also got a good price for my Note 4 to offset the cost. $900 is a lot for a phone, no way to spin otherwise. 128gb iPhone 7+ is high too, so pricing not a Samsung exclusive. Man the Note 8 is probably going to be 'spensive.

    Now let's be fair.. if you criticize the iPhone on an iPhone board.. you normally get not so happy responses as well. Let's not pretend this is the first time this has ever happened .

    I guess I should have used the word "deal breaker". And deal breakers will be different depending on who you ask.

    He does mention often that the phone costs too much and mentions there are many great phones that can run with it but much lower price... But honestly the main reason I think it's because he's just enamored with the hot side chick body and build quality and also because of that little thing she does that his main chick don't... wit that retina

    Honestly, he mentioned reboots and constantly hitting the Bixby and other little annoyances... it'll be interesting to see if he continues to be rocking with it or goes back to his main chick and look forward to his opinions.

    His reviews are some of the best, the somewhat unconventional narrative and fun dialog makes it fun to watch and listen to. I usually have three I care most about hearing from.

    MKBHD, Flossy and Erica

    Those three give me all the perspective I need.

    For those that take exception with reporting issues why do you even bother with reviews then? It's like Sammobile having to apologize to Samsung fans for pointing out the flaws of the S8 devices. What's the point of just hiding the flaws? Everyone can feel happy in their ignorance?

    He talked about things he didn't like about the S8+ for 18.5 minutes. No bueno.
    That's why it's called a review.

    True, and there are people who are looking to upgrade, switching from another brand, out to get the latest and greatest etc... who appreciate this type of review simply because they are trying to get as much info about a product as possible. In addition they may be looking for an honest opinion and not someone trying to sell them something.

    You see the same thing on political message boards.
