Samsung Galaxy S8 Review: Key Features

Last Updated:

You may not have realized it, but cell phones have changed irrevocably in 2017. Since the advent of the iPhone, which undeniably launched the smartphone era into our hands, handsets have progressively been getting larger. With greater, more powerful processors and batteries, cameras, and chipsets, manufacturers have steadily increased the sizes of the phones they make.

Come 2017, we notice that cell phones aren't bigger because of a larger chassis, but instead due to the removal of bezels. With the release of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, the now infamous bezel-less look is the hottest trend to hit smartphones, and everyone is racing to mimic Samsung's lightning in a bottle.

Put simply, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the best smartphones ever made, and certainly the best of 2017 (although Apple's iPhone 8 might change things!). Should you buy one? Below is a closer look at the key features of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Let's start with the display, perhaps the most notable asset of the Galaxy S8 and the cause of a flood of news regarding the future of smartphones. Dubbed the 'Infinity Screen,' the curved, 5.8" Gorilla Glass screen stretches all the way to the edges, increasing the screen size while keeping the size of the handset relatively the same to its predecessor, the Galaxy S7.

It casts a thinner, sleeker profile than its older cousin, too, although the larger size may be too big for people with smaller hands. Unfortunately, the back of the device is a magnet for fingerprints and smudges, especially so if you purchase the midnight black model. You might want to slap a case on this bad boy.

Sporting a resolution of 2960x1440 pixels, the Galaxy S8 is the best screen on a smartphone yet. It offers a very bright picture, deep contrast, vibrant colors, and near-perfect color accuracy. Whether it's a game, a video, photo, app, or you're just looking at the UI, everything looks stunning.

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is also one of the most powerful smartphones to date. Upon booting up, you'll be greeted with the latest Android Nougat OS and Samsung's TouchWiz skin. Thankfully, Samsung has gone above and beyond in trying to deliver a near stock Android experience. Bloatware is limited and quietly tucked away, and most of the preloaded apps are actually quite useful. Overall, the UI has a clean, sharp look to it.

The Galaxy S8 is also quite beastly, with a Snapdragon 835 chipset and 4GB of RAM. Multitasking is seamless and launching several apps or web pages causing no hindrance. Internal storage capacity is generous at 64GB, and the SIM card tray includes a slot for a microSD card. The improved 3000 mAh battery also lasts nearly all day and supports wireless charging.

One of the biggest problems Samsung will face with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is the loss of the physical and soft buttons on the front of its handsets. Samsung fans will be used to having a phone with a home button and back/menu buttons stuck below the screen, but the Infinity Display has seen to it that we don't have those anymore.

In addition, the Bixby personal assistant has yet to live up to its hype, generally falling into obscurity like the other smartphone AIs. Lastly, the fingerprint sensor is awkwardly placed at the back of the phone, and iris recognition unlocking software isn't totally accurate.
