Samsung really focuses on beating top phone manufacturers such as Apple and Google in the smartphone industry and recently they released the Samsung Galaxy S8 & the S8+.
- Bezel-less design – Usually those chunky bezels on our phone are always a barrier to what we do on our phone on a daily basis but now after eradicating those bezels…the phone looks much smaller and the screen size has been increased to 5.8inch and 6.2inch resp. which is totally futuristic. We have seen this bezel-less design on the LG G6 but Samsung nailed it by curving the screen on both sides.
- No Home Key (Button) – As bezels shrunk.. there’s no more room for home key (button) anymore, so Samsung decided to put an on-screen home key that when pressed will simulate a click like the one on the iPhone 7.
- Infinity Display – With the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus you’re gonna get an enormous display which rocks a screen resolution of 2960 x 1440 with a bizarre aspect ratio of 18.5:9. So when your watching videos on YouTube you are most likely to have those black bars on the sides.
- BIXBY Virtual Assistant – As you all know iPhones have Siri and Android phones have Google Assistant but now Samsung came with their own assistant called as Bixby and not to forget that Galaxy S8 is an Android phone, so basically it has two assistants built-in. I think its a waste of time integrating Bixby now at 2017. I think that Samsung just wants to copy everything what Apple does with their iPhone.
- Fingerprint Sensor – Usually all the Samsung devices had the fingerprint sensor embedded in the home key but now with the Samsung Galaxy S8 it is moved to the back side of the phone next to the camera..which is not at all pleasing as when you’re unlocking your device your eventually gonna smudge the camera and no one likes a photo taken with a smudged camera.
This phone is an ALL GLASS design so if you are gonna drop the Samsung Galaxy S8 you are eventually gonna have a cracked screen but if you gonna drop it in a pool your safe as it is rated IP68 dust and water resistant.
So that’s all is new about the Samsung Galaxy S8. Hope You liked it !

Have a great day ahead!
