First of all, I should mention that after two years of not actually owning my own smartphone, this year I decided to invest in an S8 and I honestly hope it’ll last me at least 18 months because it wasn’t cheap. Despite the faults of Samsung’s flagship model, it’s perfect for what I need…for now.

The Galaxy S7 was excellent, and the S8 is even better.

The Galaxy S8 is tough
Yes, for me a smartphone’s design can sway my decision over whether I buy a phone or not, but it’s not necessarily one of the main things I look for. To be honest, I used a Sony Xperia Z2 for about two years, and design was not one of its strengths.The Galaxy S8 is one of the best-looking phones I’ve ever had. I know, beauty is subjective, but I’m sure a lot of you probably agree with me on that. Since it is such a pretty phone, I refused to hide it under a cover, and for me, that could be very risky.In these 100 days, I’ve dropped it countless times, and I was always surprised that the glass never cracked. Once, as I was leaving a supermarket, it underwent full fledged drop test: 1.5 meters to the floor, bouncing three times and sliding to a stop, face down, a meter away. I honestly couldn’t believe it was still in one piece. Take a look below, and you can see the aftermath of this close encounter:

I’m not saying that if this happened to you,
