For a mid-ranger, it gets the job done

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017)

from PhoneArena
If you’re particularly fond of what Samsung does with Android – and they do a lot right – but simply don’t want to spend more than $300, then the J7 2017 is really your only choice. But the handset simply doesn’t pack much dollar-for-dollar value. With so many solid options, often offering more features and better performance, there’s never been a better time to try something new... Full review

One of many greats

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Android Central
Three months in, I'm still happily using my Galaxy S8. Like every other phone, the Galaxy S8 has its issues — chief among them being its awkward biometric security setup and sometimes-frustrating software. But for me, those are so dramatically outweighed by its gorgeous hardware, great screen, strong performance and core features. And even though its camera isn't a world-beater in the same way the Galaxy S7 was last year, I still feel confident carrying it in my pocket every day knowing I'll be happy with the photos it produces...

It’s a phone, not a case

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4

from Mobile Syrup

All things considered, the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4 is far from being a perfect phone. Its lacklustre display and camera quality left me wanting more, even in comparison with other mid range devices like the Moto E4 and the LG Stylo 3 Plus. However performance-wise the device could be a lot worse; it accepted multi tasking, surfing the internet and playing games quite well. Personally I believe the XCover 4 would probably work better for rowdy young teenagers. It's sturdy enough for the average consumer, but not for the people who would actually be interested in purchasing a rugged... Full review

An extremely niche device

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7

from NDTV
The Galaxy Tab S3 is light and easy to carry around, and could be a fun travel companion or a way to get some work done. It's much less expensive than a 10.5-inch iPad Pro with cellular data plus an Apple Pencil, but the iOS ecosystem is still more tablet-friendly. Plus, the usage experience is more polished overall with an iPad. You'll be happy with the Galaxy Tab S3 if it's a secondary or even tertiary device, and there are a number of people who can afford that kind of indulgence. If you don't need a stylus, the non-Pro iPad (2017) could serve well too... Full review

A solid midrange proposition

Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017)

from GSMArena
the Galaxy J7 (2017) is an excellent mid-range smartphone with above average specs. If the old chip is not an issue, it didn't ruin the overall experience, after all, then the new J7 has everything to become the new headliner for the series... Full review

Slim design, vibrant display

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7

from Digit
If you are looking for a tablet with a good display and good battery life, and running on Android, you can consider the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. It is a worthy contender to the iPad Pro and boasts of a slim profile and attractive design. The highlight of the device is the display and battery life, the downside is the slightly buggy software... Full review

Solid build quality, very good battery life

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)

from PhoneArena
At the end of the day, the Galaxy J5 (2017) feels like an ‘okay’ affordable phone, but is not pushing any boundaries. It has one of the best interfaces around: sleek and modern-looking, it has Samsung’s excellent apps, and it has a very solid battery life. But its camera and, most importantly, performance are underwhelming. The phone often feels stuttery and the camera lacks in detail and speed. And we know the terrible state of Android updates for phones like the J5 (2017). In such a fiercely competitive market, the J5 (2017) does too little to stand out... Full review

The best phone will only get better

Samsung Galaxy S8

from Tom's Guide
Although the Bixby assistant still isn’t ready for prime time, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a fantastic phone because of its captivating infinity display, very strong performance, long battery life and great cameras... Full review

Stylish and water resistant

Samsung Galaxy S8

from The Wirecutter
If you prefer to buy a phone from your carrier, or if you want a phone with a huge screen, water resistance, a microSD card slot, or wireless charging, you should get the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+. In addition to those features, they have the best displays of any phone we’ve tested, and with curved sides, tall aspect ratios, and impressively narrow bezels, each one has a lot more screen than the Pixels do...

I have had mine for about 6 months and the screen has already gone out.  I have resisted getting a touch phone for a long time after the last one I had went out in three months.  As I need this phone for work this is a big disappointment.

***Is Samsung Bankrupt?*** After the Note 7 disaster and replacement phones, customers are left on the hook for any future issues. Warranties do not transfer over to replacement phones... After speaking with a high-level Samsung Executive the only solution is to take your phone for a 10-day diagnostic, leaving you with nothing. When asked about a loaner phone for the customers that have been through all the headaches of Note 7 Samsung Executive hides behind policies saying "It is Samsungs policy not to give loaner phones" when asked to see the policy on exploding cell phones there was no comment. Which leads me to ask did the flagship Note 7 sink Samsung???

The phone lacks sufficient space for anything. The screen is terrible unless the brightness is high. It is a totally fragile phone without a good case.

Bought Convoy 4 three months ago. It would go in and out of service when I was sitting in the house. The wallpaper would change on its own. It would lose my pictures and videos. If you take the batter or sim card out and put it back in the pix returned, but this happened every day. The time shown when you first opened the phone was the time that you previously opened the phone, not the current time. I took the phone back to the store and they sent for a replacement. I have had the replacement for 4 days. It doesn't go in and out of service but it has all the other problems and a few more. After transferring contacts, I had several listed as unknown. All my frequently called numbers were not transferred. I input the missing numbers, but when I get texts from those people it states unknown. When I open the phone it doesn't show the main screen, but some nuance screen with a voice. Then it goes to a menu until I press ok before the main screen comes on. I have tried to change this, but nothing seems to work. When I get a text it reads it to me. I don't want a talking phone in public. How do I turn it off? I am going back to the phone store tomorrow.

I dropped it after a week

Samsung Galaxy J5

I have had a Sansumg Galaxy Ace for years dropped it loads of times without problem, it was built like a tank. The Sansumg J5 is very plasticy, it slipped out of my hands, it was not a heavy fall it did not even mark the phone, now the screen is blank despite trying to reset it.
