What customers say about "Display"
Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB Sapphire Black Smartphone for Verizon
  • The phone is excellent. Tough and resistant to injury, speakers are crystal clear and the touch screen works perfectly. A very solid phone.
  • Like it better than my old iPhone 5. Better camera of course. Bigger screen obviously, its bright and clear.
  • The screen is awesome, colors are vivid and true. No issues during calls so far.
  • My son had it for 2 weeks and suddenly the screen has streaks of green and then purple going thru the phone.
  • The phone overall is great. But the screen scratches easily.
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Edge display is easier on the eyes and phone overall feels more intuitive.
  • Colors are amazing, camera is great, thin and true edge-to-edge display, fast.
  • The AMOLED edge to edge display is absolutely brilliant and with 16 million colors and 4.1 million pixels, colors pop and the images are phenomenally sharp.
  • The edge program is a great option for apps that are frequently accessed but you don't want taking up valuable screen real estate.
  • The infinity display has no equal. Excellent viewing experience. I'm discovering new things I like, every day! Awesome device!

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Comes with a nice variety of accessories, including adapters for charging in case you want to use a micro-USB charger or want to hook up a USB cable accessory for any reason.
  • Wide range of settings for customizing your user experience and security. (Even more than the usual for an Android/Samsung device)
  • I haven't put the water resistance to the test, but I'm assuming it's as good as the last model. Glad it's there.
  • All my old Apps transferred without issue using the Samsung program
  • Cool new features (facial recognition, iris scanner, edge menu, etc)
  • I would rather have defined Home, and Back keys
  • USB cable changed to the Type C - overall a better cable, but had to buy a bunch of new cables. Good for the long term

What customers say about "Power"
Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB Sapphire Black Smartphone for Verizon
  • The battery life is incredible, better than most phones for sure. You can easily make it through a day or more without charging.
  • The battery life is amazing, video and sound quality are better than my old iPhone. This is a must buy.
  • Battery life on the S6 isn't the greatest. Otherwise so far I am happy with the phone.
  • My only issue is that the battery life is not as long as the old phone it is replacing.
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus 64GB Unlocked Phone - 6.2" Screen - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • The battery is general is much better than the Samsung s7
  • 2 days and still have 20% battery remaining. Big improvement over the S5 that had. Hope this phone last as long.
  • I go 2 days before it needs to be put on a charger (I usually plug it in around 60% battery or so) and it's fully recharged in less than 2 hours. The battery life is phenomenal
  • Phone is superfast,multi-tasking,great battery life. Charging once in 3 days. Superb battery life.
