Overview Of Samsung Galaxy S8:
Another flagship product will be released by Samsung Electronics on 21’st April 2017 for US and 28th April for the rest says Samsung, but will this once again be Samsung’s flagship Android Smartphone and will it satisfy the consumers? well lets see..
Samsung’s new release is a part of the Samsung Galaxy S Series “Samsung Galaxy S8”. Samsung Galaxy S8 contains some major improvements and awesome updates as compared to its previous release S7. It contains a much larger size, a beautiful design and curved sides. This might actually be the best design that we have ever seen, AMOLED infinity display with QHD panels and a glass shimmering screen makes it worth buying. Its curved and smooth sides from the front and the back make it really comfortable to to hold. Shrunken bezels surrounding the display, full-frontal edge to edge screen all rounds up the size to be 5.8 inches (18.5:9 aspect ratio). Now you can get a more immersive display be it movies or games, S8 will give the full scene on the screen. S8 is thin and surprisingly light weighing 152 g. The colors are amazing, the bright saturated colors all tuned out; the device itself has individual color options be it gold, silver maybe an orchid gray its your choice.
The pressure sensitive home button has been shifted to the back of the product near the camera, another innovation by Samsung is the usage of on screen buttons this allows you to change the layout of the row of buttons (multitasking, back and home). However this might be a downside for those people new to smartphones, for them physical buttons are an easier pick.
Now lets talk about the Camera, it seems that the 12 megapixel ‘dual pixel’ camera hasn’t changed much in its hardware. In fact its pretty similar to Galaxy S7. Its furnished with PDAF and OIS (Phase Detect Auto Focus and Optical Image Stabilization). The live colored filters are similar the the previous versions of Samsung phones, you can use them while taking pictures or shooting videos. Switching between video and camera mode can be achieved by simply swiping your finger to the left (video mode) and to the right (camera). The 8 megapixel front camera with auto focus lets you take pictures and selfies with filters, and you can also use the silly Snapchat features while taking snaps. Beauty mode of the front camera will absolve your imperfections showing you the beauty queen that you want to be.
The next big thing which Samsung brought out in S8 is the Bixby feature, Bixby is an AI system innovated for easier interaction with electrical devices and a number of technologies. Not only will Samsung use Bixby in S8 but also its other devices, so now you can control your Air conditioning, TV and other phones. Bixby can understand natural language and do whatever you command, Bixby will automatically underline the state of an app and perform the stated actions. For its activation all you need to do is press the Bixby button on the left side of the phone. DEX is another addition in S8, this will turn your S8 to a Desktop PC by linking your monitor including the mouse and keyboard or your HDTV.
A disappointment in Galaxy S8 is the low battery capacity considering larger size ratios and bigger screens which need powering, only 3000 mAh battery. However Samsung has used Qualcomm quick charge and has met wireless charging standers. But will this sustain the battery charge more longer remains a question. Over and all the remaining charms and wonders of the Samsung Galaxy S8 overshadow this downfall, the design, software’s, performance, and the amazing display are all pretty cool.
