Samsung Galaxy S8 wins Phone of the Year 2017 at the Trusted Reviews Awards

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones have jointly won the Phone of the Year 2017 gong at this year’s Trusted Reviews Awards.

Samsung has gone from strength to strength with its flagship Galaxy smartphone series in recent years, and the Galaxy S8 is the culmination of those bold efforts.

The handsets debuted to critical acclaim earlier this year, showing off first-to-market features such as the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a space-age Infinity Display.

We were highly impressed by the Galaxy S8, awarding it a perfect 5/5 score in our review. The device was praised for its awesome display, futuristic design and stunning camera.

Our verdict reads: “The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a new beginning for flagship phones. It’s a gorgeous sliver of tech that utilises its power for extending the experience beyond the 5.8-inch display, but manages to still be a phone that’s easy to use.”

The Galaxy S8+ went down similarly well at Trusted Reviews HQ, also earning a 5/5 score in the review. The stunning design, great software experience, and reliable camera were all key plus points in our assessment of the phone.

The brief verdict reads: “The best big phone ever. Comfortable to use, stunning to look at and an all-round winner.”

The two phones are clearly class-leading handsets, so we’re happy to award Samsung with Phone of the Year 2017 at the #TrustedReviewsAwards.
