After a flood of problems Samsung faced with the S7, they are coming back with a few revolutionary improvements in the form of their newest model, the Samsung Galaxy S8. Their flagship phone, which was just recently released and is now available at any of your favourite tech stores like Harvey Norman(http://www.harveynorman.com.au/samsung-galaxy-s8-1.html), is making a huge buzz in the smartphone industry. In fact, most of the reviews are foreseeing that some of Samsung’s features may well be tested and copied by other smartphone brands.
Just think about it: for a couple of years now, there is only one brand we associate with innovative smartphone tech, and now, even after a barrage of nightmares, Samsung is finally taking the reins in smartphone technology. If that does not excite you one bit, included in this article are some of the features that a lot of people are gushing about.
The Samsung Galaxy S8’s design is clean and sleek, with a mirror-like glass at the back. And most importantly, it comes with a 5.8-inch display (6.2-inch display variant).The new phone offers an uninterrupted and immersive viewer experience. To achieve this, they placed the home button at the bottom of the screen, completely embedded, and got rid of the branding. So while your viewing is now larger, your phone remains to feel small in your hand; that, in itself, is an amazing design feat.
Virtual home button
Another design revolution is getting rid of the physical home button and replacing ith with a virtual version. It can be found at the bottom of the screen and gives haptic feedback. The fingerprint scanner is still there for authentication, but you can find it at the back of the phone, next to the camera lens.
If the fingerprint scanner at the back is going to be a problem, the face scanner might just work for you. This another way for you to authenticate access, through Samsung’s facial recognition capabilities. While face scanning has always been a feature of Androids and laptops, this is the first time Samsung has adapted it to their phones. However, the only concern is face scanning might make it easier for anyone to unlock your phone.
Get ready to get the desktop experience through your phone with the S8’s DeX. It is a stand that comes with a fan, a USB-C, and some ports. This is a great alternative to bringing laptops or tablets to important meetings. You can even access your apps that also has desktop capabilities.
This is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s virtual assistant. Bixby can help you cast your phone screen to a Wi-Fi connected TV, search your galleries, and even fix your reminders. You can control through voice, text, or touch; you can even use the camera, point it to an object, and it will search what it is for you.
These are just some of the features that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has that will truly change how we use smartphones. Experience a design and engineering feat through the Galaxy S8 by trying it out for yourself.
