The New Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ SmartPhones with Highly substance, Unique Style, Design and are absolutely two different ways and have no flaws as Samsung S7 and Others, the criticality of which would depend upon how you perceive your ideal smartphone to be. Have an insanely weird fingerprint scanner. Samsung, for the first time in what seems like forever, has moved it from the front.
Samsung Brand, for the first time in what seems like forever, has moved it from the front on to the back. The front, in the case of the Galaxy S8 and S8+, is clean and sans any buttons. The new invisible home button is pressure-sensitive and gives you haptic feedback when you press it, kind of how it is in the case of Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The rounded edges of the handset are supposed to make the phone feel smaller in the hand but the obvious difference is in the screen and has been upgraded to Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The brand has squeezed a 5.8-in screen onto the 148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm 155g Galaxy S8 and a 6.2in screen onto the larger 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm, 173g Galaxy S8+. Galaxy S8 is the first phone to be certified by the UHD Alliance as Mobile HDR Premium.
Both phones running Android 7.0 have a top-of-the-range 10nm, octa-core, 64-bit processor – the exact flavor will depend on the market and mobile operators with 4GB of RAM, 64GB memory, which is also expandable via MicroSD up to 256GB. Battery power is 3,000mAh in the Galaxy S8 and 3,500mAh in the galaxy S8Plus. Here on both versions, the rear camera is a dual pixel 12MP (F1.7) that takes three images at a time to take data from each and produce the best possible image. The front camera is an 8MP (F1.7) with smart autofocus and facial recognition.

the Galaxy S8, though, is clearly the Quad HD+ screens. Thanks to the bezel and hidden home button trickery, the S8 hits 2960×1440, 570ppi on its 5.8-in, while the S8+ manages 2960 x 1440, 529ppi on its 6.2-in display. Because of this extra space, the screens of the Galaxy S8s can morph from a 16:9 ratio to an 18:5:9 “Infinity” view, much like the LG G6 with its “FullVision” 18:9 screen ratio. This of course means Sony currently retains the resolution crown with its 4K HDR Xperia XZ Premium.
Samsung is also making a “thing” of having its Internet of Things hub on the handsets called Samsung Connect, where you can manipulate your SmartThings-certified smart home kit.
From this menu, you can look at what’s in your camera-equipped connect fridge or change Hue lighting settings. One can even set up “modes” where you can, for example, establish a “Leaving Home” mode that turns off lights, adjusts heating and starts up the robot hoover. Elsewhere, the Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with Samsung Pay, turning their Galaxy S8 and S8+ into a digital wallet, and Samsung Pay is now available with more than 870 worldwide banks.
Audio-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S8 earphones have been tuned by AKG by Harman and have what Samsung is describing as “a comfortable hybrid canal fit for better noise cancellation.” They’re made from anti-tangle metal-fabric material.
