When it comes to the display, the Galaxy 8 Plus has got the competition well cornered. In the fast-paced world of mobile technology, it is difficult to come up with something new when it comes to design – but it’s safe to say that Samsung have achieved it with the flawless elegance of the Galaxy S8. The display is bigger than ever, without increasing the size of the actual phone. This was done by introducing the Infinity Display. The ubiquitous home button has been nixed, along with the ‘back’ and ‘recent’ keys, and the Samsung logo (now on back). In this sleek design, the buttons have been smoothly incorporated into the screen. The 5.8-inch Quad HD+ display offers crisp colours and high resolution, thanks to the AMOLED panel, which is good not only for daily use and photos, but also for watching Netflix or surfing the net
When picking your S8 Plus, you can choose between three colours: pale silver, onyx black and a stylish grey-blue, but which ever one you choose will look tasteful and modern out of the box. The phone also boasts elegant, rounded corners and transitions flawlessly into the silver metal sides, which highlight the slender design. Measuring at 159.5 x 73.4 x 8.1mm and weighing a mere 173g, it’s also light to carry and an excellent fit for holding in the palm of your hand.
Better yet, the phone is not only attractive, it’s also practical. The display is protected with the latest in pressure-sensitive glass technology, the Carning Gorilla Glass 5, which is durable enough to resist most drops, and will protect you from the indignity of a cracked screen or annoying trips to repairs.
The pro-level camera:
Samsung has always been the market leader when it comes to its cameras, and this time is no exception. The Galaxy S8 offers a new camera design, incorporating the camera more smoothly into the body of the phone. When it comes to picture quality the bar has also been raised even higher: pictures and videos are sharper than ever before and the colours are beyond realistic.
The front camera offers an 8mp camera, and an f 1.7 lens with autofocus, while the rear camera takes the game up a notch with 12 pm and an f 1.7 lens. It also stands the test of daily use, with super-sensitive image processing, which brings pictures to life on the screen. You can expected high-def images and vibrant colours.
The phone also offers improved facial-recognition software which goes a long way towards creating an outstanding smart autofocus functionalit
Your personal assistant any time, anywhere
Galaxy S8 offers their own version of a virtual personal assistant – Bixby makes your phone even smarter and it’s always at your beck and call. You can communicate with it via text, touch, picture or voice. Bixby is programmed to remember your searches, so every time you use your assistant, it understands your habits that much better, and becomes more efficient.
Samsung’s new take on mobile security is efficient, convenient, easy to use – and worthy of a 007 film. With the new iris scanner, using the very latest in eye-pattern recognition technology, you have unhindered access to your files, emails, photos and other personal data, without the hassle of passcodes. Yet, your data remains safely protected if anyone else should pick up your phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus combines a sleek appearance, gorgeous display and cutting-edge functionality with the durability needed in day-to-day use, making a truly smart phone. It is able to run numerous apps smoothly and quickly, saving on time and energy. In a nutshell, it’s the ideal choice for anyone who wants to live on the edge of tomorrow.
