Samsung Galaxy S8 (Burgundy Red, 4 GB RAM/64 GB)

About the Phone

With their new flagships, Samsung has ventured into a new direction, spearheaded by their new Infinity Display screen. They say it’s the next big thing, and they have bet all their chips on the success of the AMOLED curved screen, which to be honest, makes us drool! The Samsung Galaxy S8 has done away with the home button, and in its place, we find the on-screen navigation bar and a slight sensation at pressing it, emulated by the haptic flutter. It runs the latest Android on an Exynos 8895 Processor with a 10nm chip. The 5.8 inch Quad HD+ Curved Screen featuring the Infinity Display is a pleasure to have on this phone. It has a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera as well.

With its unique set of features and the Infinity Display, it’s definitely primed to be a bestseller.

The battery life is a bit poor, and Bixby does have some problems with recognising items.


Pros Cons
Infinity Display Poor Battery Life
Powerful Processor Awkward position of the fingerprint sensor
