Samsung has launched the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, after months of leaks Samsung’s 2017 flagship smartphones are here and a lot has changed. Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8 plus revolutionary design begins from the inside out. We rethought every part of the phone’s layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all you see is pure content and virtually no bezel. It’s the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size. And it’s easy to hold in one hand.
Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8 plus
There are two versions of Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8 plus – the so-called international ones, which have been launched in India, are based on Samsung’s own in-house Exynos 8895 SoC, while the ones sold in North America use Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 835. The two chips are extremely similar – in fact both are manufactured by Samsung on its cutting-edge 10 nm fabrication process. The Snapdragon name is well regarded, but buyers in India shouldn’t feel as though they’re getting second-best. Early reports have shown the Exynos matching or even exceeding Qualcomm’s latest and greatest silicone.
Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8 plus has four custom Samsung M2 CPU cores and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores running at up to 1.9GHz, balancing performance and power efficiency. There’s also an integrated ARM Mali-G71 GPU which promises up to 60 percent better graphics performance than before. Samsung says that the Exynos 8895 supports cache coherency between CPU and GPU cores, reducing latency for complex tasks. There are also improvements to the media decoder, camera image signal processor, LTE modem and encryption subsystems, plus a new vision processing unit to enable object recognition and motion tracking. All of this benefits from the 10nm process in the form of better power efficiency and the ability to run for much longer before speeds are throttled because of heat.
Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch screen while the S8+ has a 6.2-inch screen. Both have a similar determination, 1440 x 2960, which gives the little model a slight edge as far as pixel thickness. In any case, these screens have adjusted corners, so you lose a small piece of land – Samsung measures the subsequent rectangular range as 5.8 inches and 6.2 crawls for the two models separately. As a result of the non-standard 18.5:9 angle proportion, heaps of applications keep running in a letterbox with dark bars on the best and base, however Samsung utilizes some of that space for the Android route catches.
Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8 plus both phones have 12-megapixel rear cameras. That might not sound like a lot, but it’s the sensors that matter, not the megapixel count. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have 1.4-micron pixels on a 1/2.55-inch sensor, plus optical image stabilisation and a f/1.7 aperture. The front cameras on both phones have 8-megapixel sensors and f/1.7 apertures as well. The S8 and S8 Plus also double as solid video cameras. They capture quality footage at up to 4K with great colors and minimal jittering. I just wish Samsung offered more flexibility — there’s a record button, and that’s about it.
Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8 plus both phones have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. They’re dual-SIM capable with 4G at Gigabit speeds and VoLTE, but you want to add more storage using a microSD card, you’ll lose one SIM slot. You also get Wi-Fi 802.11ac, the brand new Bluetooth 5.0 standard which improves speed and range, NFC, and GPS.
They also fare well in our standard video rundown test, where we loop an HD video at 50 percent screen brightness while the phones are connected to Wi-Fi. The S8 and its 3,000mAh battery stuck around for 13 hours and 27 minutes. The clear winner, though, is the S8 Plus and its 3,500mAh battery. It clocked in at 15 hours and 8 minutes.
Samsung has played it safe and fitted the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus with familiar battery capacities:
Galaxy S8 – 3000 mAh
Galaxy S8 Plus – 3500mAh
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 plus are built to be more accessible for everyone. A well-thought-out range of technical solutions make it easy for anyone to make full use of the Galaxy S8 and S8 plus advanced capabilities.Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are two of the most outwardly shocking cell phones at any point made. Their vision of an ‘all show’ belt speaks to the eventual fate of cell phone outline and this will be sufficient to offer a great many units around the globe.
It’s an issue that could utilize a bit of reconsidering. A short time prior, particularly in India, Samsung was synonymous with Android. In the event that you were purchasing an extravagance telephone that wasn’t an iPhone, it was the current ruling Galaxy S demonstrate – or a Galaxy Note in the event that you needed to appear as something else. Different alternatives existed, however chiefly on the edges of the market.Samsung has surely demonstrated that it has the outline and assembling qualities to pull off totally shocking gadgets. In case you will spend this much on a cell phone, you will need it to feel unique, and that is something that both these telephones do. Everybody who sees you utilize one will need to comprehend what it is
There’s a USB-C port on the telephones’ bottoms, and alongside that? The earphone jack. We’ve seen organizations discarding this exemplary port, asserting that it took up excessively space. The S8 and S8 Plus are ideal denials of that line of considering. Gracious, and they don’t impede waterproofing, either. The two gadgets are IP68 clean and water-safe, which implied they could relax for up to 30 minutes in the strange wine shower we poured.
The unique finger impression sensor is on a par with missing, the product appears to be loaded down with some pointless highlights, and not every person will love the bended glass. We would have enjoyed the alternative of a level screen, yet we presume this is the way Samsung is currently separating itself from the opposition.
