Description

It’s a much subtler curve than on the Galaxy S7 Edge; far more like the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 in fact, which makes it a lot easier to use. Accidental touches were common on older Edge phones, with your hand hitting the screen when you were just holding the device, but I haven’t experienced this with the S8. There’s still a bit of extra reflection on this portion of the screen, but it’s a small trade-off for such an eye-catching look. Introducing Samsung Galaxy S8 ✓ Best Price Point in Kenya.

 

Samsung Galaxy S8 – Design

Nothing comes close to the Galaxy S8 design-wise. It’s the best-looking phone I’ve ever seen, leaving every other handset trailing in its wake.

The curved rear, as seen on the Galaxy S7, nestles perfectly in your palm, while the glass shimmers as the light hits it. The device is available in three colours – a dark black, bright silver and a grey with a blueish tinge – with no ugly white front plate in sight.

My review unit is the black option, and it’s properly black all over, with shiny sides that blend into the display. It feels like one complete piece, with the glass, screen and metal combining all together.

There is a silver (actually, pink) lining though: the Phone 6S Plus has a new color! In addition to gold, silver and space grey you can now pick up atest supersized smartphone in a fetching shade of ‘Rose Gold’… also known as pink.

The IPS screen is covered in toughened glass with fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, and it does a better job than most at keeping the display relatively print-free.

Hold the Phone  side by side to the Phone 6  and there are no visible differences between the two

Screen and EVF

The device bearing a 5.8-inch screen is perfect for the pockets and like the S7, the rounded edges make the device fit perfectly in the palm but unfortunately, the metal-and-glass backing is a fingerprint magnet which might put you off.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has undergone a massive change in terms of the screen. The 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen comes with a QHD+ display which is one of a kind and ensures a unique visual experience. The screen also features a coating of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
Features that stand out and make the S8 even more special include a super-fast fingerprint reader, iris scanner at the back and IP68 certification which makes the smartphone dust-proof and water resistant.
