In the United States, April 21st is the day that Samsung officially unveils its "rebound" smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8. After being mired in the great exploding-battery controversy of 2016 for Samsung's Note 7, Samsung is more than ready to reintroduce themselves to smartphone consumers everywhere! So the question is, what features have been added to ensure that this smartphone will be more successful than the Note 7? In this blog, we have taken a look at some of the main features of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in order to help you decide whether or not you want to give this new model of smartphone a run in 2017.
Battery: Even though, the previous model of Samsung Galaxy did not share the same battery-exploding issues as its Note 7, there have still been some questions regarding the battery of the upcoming Samsung smartphones. The Galaxy S8 has the same battery size as the S7 at 3,000mAh, which translates to roughly 7 hours and 30 minutes of battery life.
Display:The overall design of the display has been described as being one of the better looking displays of any smartphone currently on the market. The Galaxy S8 comes equipped with 18.5:9 dimensions, which rivals that of the LG G6, is a much more narrow and tall design. The glass of the display is formed out of the Gorilla Glass 5, making it one of the damage-resistant phones. In addition, the display is a bit curved on the edges, creating a more “futuristic”-looking smartphone!
Camera: Initial reviews seem to shoe that the camera included on the Galaxy S8 is being very well received! The specifications of the camera include a 12-megapixel camera that has been modified to help limit the amount of blur in images. Samsung has also stepped up their game in improving the quality of low-light imagery. From all indications, the camera offered with the Galaxy S8 seems to trump its competitor, the iPhone 7 and adds some fresh new features to a demographic that has been clamoring for higher quality images.
