Samsung Galaxy S8: Breaking away from the classic screen

Anyone looking for a new smartphone can’t ignore Samsung’s new flagship model. At the recommended price, the Korean manufacturer’s Galaxy S8 is a little cheaper than the top Apple models, but it holds its own in terms of specs.

It starts with a fast processor, more than enough memory and a battery that lasts up to two days per charge. The 5.8” screen has a special 18.5:9 screen ratio, so the phone is longer and sits well in the hand. The thin, curved edge offers sufficient grip and, at the same time, creates an elegant look.

The S8 is brimming with the latest features. It comes with a fingerprint scanner, face recognition and even an iris scanner to unlock the phone automatically. The latest Bluetooth 5.0 is included, too. Samsung has done away with the usual home button and instead uses a touch-sensitive virtual button with haptic feedback.
