Samsung Galaxy S8 Price

SAMSUNG Galaxy S8  Price – Specification & Review.

Display

Both have the edged display first seen by the S6 edge and S6 edge+, and continued on last year’s S7 edge. There is no ‘regular’, flat-screen variant of the S8. The new models have a pressure sensor buried at the foot of the screen that acts as a home button; a physical button is not present in order to give the phones larger screens with smaller bezels.

The S8 has a 5.8in quad HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2960×1440 and 570ppi, while the S8 Plus has a huge 6.2in display with the same tech, resolution, and 529ppi.

The S8’s regular 16:9 aspect ratio was expected, but the S8 Plus has an 18.5:9 display, slightly taller and similar to the 18:9 screen of rival LG’s G6.

Dimensions and weight

The Galaxy S8 measures 148.9×68.1x8mm and is ever so slightly taller next to a regular S7. The S8 Plus measures 159.5×73.4×8.1mm, but importantly doesn’t feel ridiculously huge in the hand. In fact, both models can be used one handed fairly comfortably, and continues the trend started by the G6 of smaller bodied phones with taller, larger screens.

The S8 weighs 155g while the S8 Plus weighs 173g.

Processor and graphics

The much-touted Snapdragon 835 processor has not been confirmed by Samsung, and looks as though it may have opted to go with its own Exynos range of chips for the European models of the S8 and S8 Plus.

We think they are packing the Exynos 8895 chip because Samsung has already announced it, and also because the 8895’s specs match with Samsung’s quoted EU specific octa-core specs – split between 2.3GHz and 1.7GHz. They are, Sammy claims, the first mobile HDR devices ever.

The company also claimed the CPU has a 10% performance gain from previous models, while the unnamed GPU benefits from a 20% lift. We’ll be sure to test these claims to the max when we review the phones in full.

Storage and RAM

Both S8 models are only available with 64GB of on board storage, but are both expandable via microSD up to 256GB. This is paired with 4GB RAM app use and multitasking.

Battery

The S8 has a 3,000mAh non-removable battery while the S8 Plus has a 3,500mAh power pack. Given that we found (as did many other journos and users) that the S6 and S7 had significantly worse battery life after a year or so of daily use, we hope Samsung has improved things, particularly on the smaller model.

They come bundled with a wired fast charger, and also are compatible with fast and regular wireless charging, though you’ll have to fork out for a charging pad.

Cameras

The rear facing cameras are the same on both S8 models, and are in fact also the same on both S7 models: 12Mp lens with an f/1.7 aperture.

The S7 had phenomenal camera performance, so it’s not a huge surprise nothing has changed here, but it’s worth remembering that smartphone manufacturers normally go out their way to bump camera specs to encourage sales.

Connectivity and extras

The S8 models use USB-C for the first time on a Galaxy S smartphone. Also on board is NFC, LTE Cat16 and Bluetooth 5.0.

Just like the S7, the S8 and S8 Plus are IP68 water and dust resistant. Basically, very everything-proof.

DeX

A final cool extra for the S8 and S8 Plus is compatibility with DeX, a new dock and desktop conversion system similar to Microsoft’s Continuum. Simply plug your S8 into the (optional, expensive) dock and you can use apps on a monitor, keyboard and mouse set up.

You can run either a virtualised Windows 10, using a system like Citrix for example, or a desktop version of TouchWiz – the option of both is actually very clever indeed, and welcome. Let’s wait and see how well it works in real life.

Android Nougat 7.0, with Samsung’s updated TouchWiz skin. There are some cool little touches, including Snap Window, which allows you to pin content such as video to the top of the screen while running other apps in a multitasking effort.
