Samsung Galaxy S8
The Galaxy S8 is a phone that’s unlike anything you’ll have seen on the market so far. It’s simply amazing.
It’s incredibly expensive in a world where mid-range phones are more than good enough to handle most tasks people like such as email and calls… however the second you pick it up, it’s easy to see what the fuss is about.
The screen is just brilliant – the clearest, sharpest and offers lovely colour reproduction to make movie watching a dream, surrounded in a beautifully crafted chassis, the S8 is the best looking phone on the market to date.
The Galaxy S8 isn’t perfect, of course…
For example, the fingerprint scanner is on the back of the phone. We find it so much easier to use the feature when it is on the front of the phone.
However, it does have a super-cool iris scanner feature, the future is here and now!
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a phone that should be one of the very first you look at when deciding which new phone you buy.
The large display is truly iconic and beautiful, and the screen quality excellent.
The fingerprint scanner being placed on the back of the phone is a poor decision from Samsung, however with the introduction of the Iris scanner, this could somewhat be forgiven.
The improved battery life and tweaked camera will be among the best you find on a high-end mobile.
The Galaxy S8 is an expensive phone – have no doubts about that – but it’s one that we consider to be well worth the investment.
