Samsung Galaxy S8 Specifications with Guide and ReviewThe Galaxy S8 is a big screen on a not very big foam and this is an even bigger screen on that much bigger phone its galaxy s 8 so what's new here is that they're super tall because they got rid of the bezels on the top and the bottom of the phone and now the sides are still curved like they are on like the galaxy s7 edge. These phones come now Samsung's not calling it an infinity display and it looks really sharp and it's got you know HDR color.
Galaxy S8 Specs
Samsung makes great screens and these look great really the thing that hits you hardest when you look at the hardware on this phone. The curved, 5.8-inch Infinity Screen stretches all the way to the edges, 5.8" (full rectangle) / 5.6" (rounded corners) Quad HD+ Super AMOLED Display. Full rectangle measured diagonally and rounded corners measured diagonally. So you'll get the biggest picture possible, without added bulk. Both of S8 have the same resolution which is 20 960 x 1440.
Galaxy S8 Review
Get rich, deep contrast and vibrant color with the world's first HDR-certified smartphone display‡, and multi-task like a pro in split-screen. It's feels really great the seams are even harder to find than they are on the S7 edge the glass just sort of melts into the sides and they don't have a camera bump on the back this honestly it feels like some of the best phone hardware.
Those Galaxy S8 bezels on the top and the bottom means they had to make some changes. so you'll notice there's no home button here in the front it's not on the back either what there is is like a virtual home button. Samsung has added some haptic feedback, it's kind of like force touch on the iPhone but it's only right here at the very bottom. So, even if you don't see a software home button you can still press hard on that area of the screen and that is going to take you Galaxy S8 home.

If you want to unlock the phone you actually have three different ways you can do it now well for you can do your password or your pattern as usual but there's a Galaxy S8 fingerprint sensor on the back it is located right next to the camera which is a little bit hard to reach and not great if you're left-handed and it also means you're probably going to end up putting your finger on the camera sometimes which could cause some smudges. So, make sure you wipe it off or you take a picture there's also iris scanning which is very secure and then there's now face scanning.
I don't think it's quite as secure as the iris scanning or the fingerprint sensor but my god is it past like look at how fast this thing unlocks you blink and you miss it. You don't have to wait for it to scan your face at all it just works there a little bit narrower than the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge. The S8/S8+ can fit in a three thousand milliamp battery at a 3,500 one on the S8+ it's not exactly pushing the limit in terms of battery capacity. Samsung also claims that the S8 battery is about long-term performance rather than a short-term benchmarking burst. It's expected to hold a longer charge after 6 months, a year and two years compared to the S7. The redesigned 3,000 mAh battery in the Galaxy S8 has been built to pass an 8-point battery safety check. This Galaxy S8 has extreme testing process, followed by careful inspection, ensures that Samsung's batteries meet the highest quality standards.
Galaxy S8 Features
Both of Galaxy S8 got IP68 waterproofing there's four gigs of ram there's 64 gigs of on-board storage and there's expandable storage. There is a standard 3.5 millimeter S8 headphone jack and one thing that Samsung didn't change is the camera on the back it's still 12 megapixel sensor. Samsung says it has improved the image processing software. We really like these cameras on the f7 imagine they're going to be just as good probably a little bit better. The front-facing camera it's now eight megapixels and it has autofocus which is pretty cool when you're in the camera.
The big big things that's new in the S8 it's called Bixby. it's Samsung's intelligent agent, how it works? in the camera to start when you've got the camera app open you can hit this button and then it'll go into bixby mode and it's going to auto-detect whatever it sees on the screen.
So if it's pointed out some flowers it's going to recognize that they're flowers and show the pictures of more flowers or maybe let me go buy some flowers. It wasn't able to figure out exactly what model of watch it was it actually like figured out it was a watch and showed a bunch of pictures of other watches or let me go to amazon to buy a watch that looks like it which is really impressive but beyond like a our stuff in the camera.
Bixby's really for is to sort of make it easier to use Samsung's own software their goal is to have anything that you would do by touching the phone you can do by speaking to the phone with any compatible app it's of course starting on Samsung.
Galaxy S8 tutorial to use Bixby by holding down a side button, which is actually a really bold move they've got a whole extra button and big speed turns out to not be that great they basically wasted part of the hardware of the phone on this thing so we're gonna have to see.
