Samsung is back in a big bad way, kind of.

Carrier: Verizon Wireless

So I've been using the S8+ for about 8 weeks now and this phone is a beast.

Here's the bad thing about the device: Android Nougat sucks. If you can get past the goofy version of Android however, you're in for a treat.

My last Samsung device was the S6 Edge Plus, which was probably the best phone Samsung ever developed.

However, in the post Note 7 Apocalypse landscape we now inhabit, the S8+ is about as good as it's going to get.

It wields the same 4gb of ram as before, but with 64gb of flash memory and an expandable memory option, the S8+ is a good way to future proof yourself for a good 2-3 years, should you desire.

Samsung has all but abandon any trace of bezel opting for a gigantic 6.2 inch "infinity" display which is perfect for couch surfing and binging Netflix with a beer riding shotgun all the live the long day.

In terms of battery, I charge the thing on a fast Qi charger for about an hour each morning, whilst I prepare for the day, that's it, no overnight charging required.

I will say that most of the tech in this phone is not necessary for the average Joe, but I like it.

Best Samsung phone ever made.

Carrier: AT&T

The title says it all. This is without a doubt the best Samsung has ever made. They took everything that was right about the tragic Note 7 and blew it up ( pun intended ). It feels great in the hand has the same excellent rounded sides. I don't know how they did it but you almost can't tell that there's an aluminum band between the two glass halves. It's almost perfectly seamless.

The screen, what is there to say? It's the best screen on a smartphone to date. The size they fit ( 6.2 inches ) into the footprint of this phone is amazing. This phone is as tall as an iPhone 7 plus and less wide, yet has .7 inches more screen. And the quality of the display is amazing. It looks beautiful and crisp.

Also, I DO NOT have an issue with the fingerprint reader being where it's at. After about two days of using this phone my hand knows exactly where to land to hit the reader every time without issue. I have normal size hands too. If you have tiny Donald Trump hands maybe​ just maybe you'll have an issue.

The battery I thought may be an issue is not. I use my phone a great deal and I make it through a day fine with usually 15-20% to spare. This is usually from 8am till 12:30am-1am when I go to bed. Does it last as long as my OnePlus 3T? No. But it's more than adequate, and I can understand why they didn't try to cram a 4000 Mah battery inside.

About the only thing that I can say I'm even slightly disappointed in is that they used the same excellent camera module as on the S7 edge and Note 7. I wish they would have gone a little better on that. That being said, it's still one of the best cameras on any phone.
