What You Need to Know About Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus

The new Samsung Gear VR is bundled with preordered Galaxy S8 handsets. However, this requires root access which is not available yet for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones. At a first glance, it seems like Samsung did everything right with this device, especially after the Note 7 scandal. That's why today we speak this year of Note 8, following the same nomenclature of the S8 model so that people do not think that it is a model below in terms of specifications and time.

Which Android heavyweight would you buy - Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6? Samsung has always put a ton of effort into making its screens as accurate and bright as possible, but the S8 truly raises the bar for what we expect in a smartphone display. This is not unexpected. The company released the Galaxy C9 Pro last year in China, followed by its Hong Kong launch, this year. But before that, the company has chose to launch its Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 in India by the end of this month. That said, the Galaxy S8+ may not outperform the iPhone 7 Plus, but it appears as though the phone's battery will be good enough to get you through the day. The compact design of the S8 series enables comfortable one-handed operation and Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 on both the front and back for durability and a high-quality finish. In a time when most smartphones come with 32GB of storage, Samsung might do very well in this regard. As for the chipset, the S8 and S8 Plus are coming with Snapdragon 835 and those are the only devices that are powered by it. The new S8 launcher is not wildly different from the one found on the S7, but it offers a handful of new features that you might find yourself quickly growing used to. It is interesting that its price is very close to the one of an iPhone, which has always been a subject Android fans mocked Apple fans for. But for a novel new method, Samsung will let users unlock the S8 with facial recognition. Still, it is pretty much for a smartphone. The fingerprint scanner which usually placed in the home button got moved to the back of the device.
