Brilliant Design
The Samsung Galaxy S8 exhibits a fundamental major design change with a slim, sleek, glossy appearance. Its chiselled corners deliver brilliance and a truly aesthetic profile. Samsung has intelligently put to use the premium materials such as metal and glass to construct a beautiful device. It is a flagship device equipped with all the contemporary features such as a 5.8-inch quad-HD Infinity AMOLED Display, and powerful battery capacity of 3000mAh complemented with the wireless and fast charging function.

A Vivid Display Screen
With Samsung Galaxy S8 the most captivating feature is the display screen as it occupies most of the facial panel of the smartphone. The display is the hallmark feature of the Samsung Galaxy S8 with tall and narrow physical profile, excellent output with pixel-rich composition. The AMOLED panel delivers deep, inky blacks and incredible contrast, which make images and video really pop. Colours are vivid, without appearing too unnatural, things have really come a long way from the overly vibrant hues of early OLED phones.

Fast, Seamless & State-Of-The-Art
Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the very first smartphones furnished with the latest version of Exynos chipset in this flagship device. Samsung Galaxy S8 features “iris recognition sensor” being the next-level technology to the fingerprint sensor. The device features the IP68 rating, 3.5mm headphone jack and USB-C port. From a physical perspective, the smartphone has a curvaceous body that feels great in the hand. The curved glass front and back tucks into a shiny alloy band, giving the phone an organic look and feel. The lack of any visible bezel makes the S8 like the smartphone equivalent of an infinity pool.

Revamped Finger-Print Scanner
The fingerprint scanner within Samsung Galaxy S8 is no longer part of a physical home button. Previously Samsung’s trademark lozenge-shaped home button has been submerged under the screen and it is now a pressure-sensitive button. This has resulted in freeing up screen space yet the pressure sensitive home button provides tactile feedback when pressed, and the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back panel of the device.

Designed To Impress
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is designed in a manner to visually as well as technologically impress the first time users choose to pick it up. The Infinity Display (as Samsung is calling this edge-to-edge effort) features an extremely thin bezel and a screen that all users are going to notice as the key attribute of this device as well the latest hardware it is furnished to deliver impeccable performance.

Bixby – A New Assistant
Bixby is Samsung’s all new personal assistant. It aims that whatever users can do with touch, they can do with the voice as well. Users can also mix and match types of input such as talking, tapping or typing. Bixby will use contextual cues to figure out what users are trying to arrive at. Users can summon Bixby either with a trigger word or with that dedicated hardware button on the left. A simple press brings users a Bixby Home screen and users shall be greeted by a summary of the agenda, weather and upcoming reminders.

Latest & Flawless Operating System
Samsung has once again, refined its user interface to provide its own Samsung Experience (formerly TouchWiz) skin on top of Android 7.0 Nougat. One of the most noticeable changes here is to the app tray, however, swipe the finger up or down from the main display and phone leads to the hordes of apps. It delivers a nice way of doing things and feels very natural.

A Power-Pack Battery
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is equipped with a 3000mAh battery and non-removable. The battery has been designed in a way that it shall service all the functions such as gaming, multi-tasking while offering ample time for stand-by and talking. The battery is fully capable of dealing with the screen brightness as well as the CPU/GPU combination deliver efficient performance while keeping the battery usage quite balanced.

Impressions
With the price of a flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S8 offers all that can be expected from a mobile phone. It features a great mix of power and design, with the screen on the front rightly being the headline feature of this phone. The new display on the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the most attractive ever seen on any phone. It is fast, attractive and has the biggest screen possible in a very compact body. The battery is good enough on the Galaxy S8, and upgrades to the operating system amplify the hardware performance.
