Samsung has always given stiff competition to Apple, HTC and other smartphones manufacturers right from the very beginning. Today Samsung stands as one of the most successful and highly valued companies of all time. When it comes to flagship devices, Samsung has always pushed the boundaries and brought us new and exciting products. Here we are going to talk about their latest flagship device i.e. Samsung Galaxy S8. So let’s get started and see what makes this device so special.
Bezel-less displays have long been a dream for many smartphone enthusiasts and Samsung has made this dream come true. Bezels, both on the top and bottom, are absolutely minimal. The display is a curved edge screen that tapers to the sides seamlessly. It gives a premium feeling and looks like a wonderfully cut slab of glass. It features a Quad HD screen. It simply means that games and movies are going to look much better now and since Galaxy S8 is also Google VR compatible, such a huge resolution is going to take VR experience to a whole new level. Out of the box, you get Full HD resolution but you can go to settings and change it to Quad HD.
Design and Build:
The overall design and build quality are of the premium level. At the moment, this is perhaps the most well designed and premium smartphone available in the market. The front is a gorilla glass panel and the back gives a brushed metal feeling. The camera module has been integrated in such a way that there is no camera bump on the back. The overall profile is slim and even with a case strapped to it, it doesn’t feel bulky.
The camera module on the back is 12 MP and on the front is 8 MP. Both of the cameras come with auto focus. The autofocus feature worked perfectly during our tests. This feature will definitely help you a lot in getting steamy shots without much of an effort. The autofocus works even after you have taken a picture. Galaxy S8 captures incredible details that make even some of the most basic clicks look like some work of art. The camera module on the back also has optical image stabilisation. OIS comes in handy when you are making a video or clicking a shot in motion. OIS works perfectly on this phone and its guaranteed to help you take stable videos and shots even while running, jogging, cycling or moving in general.
Galaxy S8 ships with a 3500 mAh battery. Since the screen is an OLED panel, it saves a lot of battery. You can expect S8 to last one full day with heavy use. The phone also supports quick charging so full can get more than 60 percent battery charged within a few minutes.
