Best Things About Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy is a phone that’s unlike anything you’ll have seen on the market. When you’re paying big amount for a phone, you’d expect it to have all the bells and whistles & the S8 has them all over the place. It’s just stunning. Check out the Best things of S8 to see if that’s the phone for you.


Things That Make It A Galaxy

It’s Wireless charging is onboard, something that few other top-end phones have right now, because they’re all still using unibody aluminium designs. The S8’s glass back is perfect for cable-free charging. MicroSD card expansion and IP68 water resistance make a return here, so you won’t run out of space for your music, photos and apps, or have to buy a new phone just because you dropped it in the sink.



The hardware is practically the same as on last year’s model, pairing a 12MP sensor with an f/1.7 aperture lens, optical image stabilisation and dual-pixel autofocus. The big difference this year is multi-frame image processing, which stitches multiple shots together every time you press the shutter button. It then uses some of these shots to sharpen and reduce noise in the one frame that ultimately becomes your photo.


Force Touch

This phone doesn’t have a physical home button. It does have a fingerprint scanner, as well as face-scanning capabilities. The fingerprint scanner is now on the back of the phone, right next to the camera lens. When you press on the home button (virtual) , it gives tactual feedback in response. Also!


Fast Face Scanning

Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 will have multiple ways to authenticate your device. It’s got a fingerprint sensor, an iris scanner, old-fashioned PINs, and now, a face scanner. Authentication through facial recognition is the first implementation made by Samsung itself. This kind of face-scanning tech could easily become the default mechanism for unlocking your phone.



TouchWiz is the touch interface created and developed by Samsung Electronics with partners, featuring a full touch user interface. This version of Touchwiz is an absolute joy to use, with minimal changes to Google’s base OS and options to modify just about everything so you can get your phone working exactly how you want it. Samsung’s even added a few tweaks that we think are actually better than the default Android skin for instance you can swipe up or down anywhere on the home screen to open your app drawer.
