Finally the long waited Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ was released on March 29. The
major and the top new feature of the Galaxy S8 is the design, the curved edges, screen
to body aspect ratio of 18.5:3, which is a little odd but still cool which Samsung called
Infinity display . Has we have have seen LG G6 early this with 18.5 aspect ratio.The
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ is also the first smartphone rocking Qualcomm
The Samsung Galaxy S8 rocking 5.8 inch display while the Galaxy S8+ with 6.2 inche
display both with Super AMOLED 2,960x1440px resolution, and also supports HDR
which is really good. Because of the display size we now have onscreen button rather
than the capacitive button , and the fingerprint button at the back of the phone near the
phone camera. But also supports iris recognition/face recognition for unlocking.
The camera has little upgrade with 8mp rear camera and software upgrade which takes
multiple images to create a noise free final shot like the pixel.
The Galaxy S8 has 3000mah battery while the Galaxy S8+ has 3500mah battery which is
not bad but not really sufficient.
