S8 Review

Design

The design of Galaxy S8 starts from the inside out. It is comfortable to hold in hand. The surface is smooth and without bumps. The display glass flows with a continuous surface surrounded by the aluminium casing. So, an entirely regular and well-curved phone comes here for you.

Fine-Tuned Photography

Taking a perfect selfie is always a dilemma for everyone. Now, with Galaxy S8’s Smart Auto Focus technology, you can track the faces easily. Its F1.7 lens adds another star to its ranking and brings the brighter photographs even in a darker atmosphere.

Security

Samsung is always concerned for the individual privacy. So, it introduced “iris scan” technology in the Galaxy S8. This unique technology recognizes the round coloured area of your eyes. So, it becomes impossible for others to replicate it. Other security measures include Face Recognition, Fingerprint, Pattern lock, password and PIN lock.

Performance

Inner Body S8

An incredible faster performance of Galaxy S8 is due to its 10nm Processor that consumes 2% less power. It makes the files transfer between your S8 and any other phone very convenient and a lot faster. The 10nm Processor is the most advanced processor of the world, and you find it in Galaxy S8.

So, downloading, moving from one to another app and even charging the phone becomes incredibly faster. Galaxy S8 is IP68 rated. So, it does not matter if you use it while swimming in the pool or while exploring a dusty area.

Bixby

Bixby

Bixby is here at your service all the times. Your assistant Bixby checks emails and responds them, finds a product or location, finds out your desired restaurants and even translates the relevant documents as per your instructions. Just turn it on and leave the rest of the things to Bixby.

Dimensions & Display

Its dimensions are 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0, and the weight is 155 g. The display screen is 5.8” with 2960 x 1440 (Quad HD+) Resolution. It comes with dual edge Super AMOLED technology.

Memory

The built-in memory is 64GB, and the RAM is 4GB in it. It supports an external memory up to 256GB.

Camera

Galaxy S8 Camera

It has dual cameras. The rear camera consists of Dual Pixel 12MP, and the front camera is 8.0 MP with F1.7 for stunning photography.

Connectivity

It has two slots for dual Nano SIM cards and one Hybrid slot for MicroSD card. It supports 2G GSM, 3G UMTS, 3G TD-SCDMA, 4G FDD LTE and 4G TDD LTE for faster connectivity.

Its USB version is 3.1 Gen 1 for a more rapid transfer of data between the phone and computer devices. It includes the Bluetooth version V5.0.

Battery Life

The standard capacity of its battery is 3000 mAh. If you are using 3G Internet continuously on it, the battery life goes up to 11 hours that seems cool. Due to 10nm Processor, the battery consumption reduces and thus, you get a talk time up to 20 hours.

Pros
  • Its ultra-wide display provides you with a panoramic view in a higher resolution. Now you can view your desired stuff in a far more detail.
  • Due to its OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) Screen technology, you enjoy the content in incredibly brighter and natural colors than the other phones.
  • 10nm processor saves alot of battery and provides you better speed as compared to older Samsung and other brands’ devices.
Cons
  • While lying in bed, you can’t hold the phone due to its edged screen.
  • The location of a Fingerprint scanner is ambiguous, and the users are unable to get it easily.
  • The back casing of the phone is made of glass. So, it could be damaged easily.
