Samsung Galaxy S8 saw the first Samsung device in a long time to have a major design revamping which turned out to be an absolute blockbuster. It started to begin selling in late April to early May 2017 with a sizeable price tag of around 95,000 rupees, and now the Samsung s8 price in Pakistan has gotten down 50-55000, which is almost half its original selling price so the Galaxy S8 is your ticket to all-round excellence.
You all remember the Note 7 fiasco yes? While you won’t be getting that back but what the Galaxy S8 brings to the table is a more improved carbon copy of those premium build materials. Although it was released in 2017 and we are almost in 2020 now, Samsung S8 is still a good phone with its amazing features. Featuring curved dual-glass panels at its front and back with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 putting some icing on the cake. IP68 dust and waterproofing are more or less customary features in flagships nowadays and the S8 packs them within remarkable dimensions that include an 8mm width and 155g weight.
Here it finally is; the Galaxy S8 features an outstanding display that covers almost 85% of the front panel, more than any other smartphone in the market barring one or two LG G series phones. Statistically speaking, the smartphone features a curved 5.8 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 570ppi pixel density. Flanked by two almost non-existent bezels, the Galaxy S8 undoubtedly signals where the future of smartphone displays is heading towards.
We’ll say this despite the fact that the Galaxy S8 features an almost identical primary camera sensor as its predecessor, the Galaxy S7. Featuring a 12 dual-pixel sensor with phase detection autofocus, OIS but a newer feature known as multi-shot image stacking that’s likely a feature that allows multiple shots to be taken really quickly, the S8 definitely borrows something old but improved from its older counterpart.
Probably following in the footsteps of Apple’s iPhone 7, the S8’s selfie camera finely sees some buffing up. The smartphone features a vastly improved 8 megapixel sensor that comes with an f/1.7 aperture sized lens that takes much better, brighter and wider snaps.
The Galaxy S8 is packed with loads of old and new stuff; first of all is the return of the all-famous iris scanner. This baby’s found its feet again with some help from the Galaxy S8 and that double layer of security is back in action. Next we have the Bixby virtual assistant for you. Much like Apple’s Siri, Bixby’s job is to make life easier for you by doing various different tasks very efficiently and intelligently indeed. Just a simple press of a dedicated button or using a trigger word is enough to summon the all-doing Bixby.
Moving underneath the hood, the Galaxy S8 is powered by an octa-core processor with 4 gigs of RAM quashing any previous rumors of the S8 featuring 6GB of RAM. Android Nougat runs atop a smooth combination of these two hard working beasts putting forth a lag-free user experience for you to enjoy. Its internal storage stands at 64GB which is exactly what the doctor ordered while its fingerprint scanner sees a new home, just beside the primary camera sensor due to the indefinite waving-off of the home button. A non-removable 3000 mAh battery juices the smartphone from the inside while its 5 different color schemes add further beauty to its already premium exterior.
