Samsung revealed their new flagships smartphones, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus during their Unpacked 2017 event. These devices are spectacular, and are absolutely breath taking. The new devices feature the new infinity screen which has curved edges and almost no bezels on the screen. The entire front of the phone is one piece of glass. The smaller of the two phones is 5.8 inches and the bigger one is a whopping 6.2 inches. These are gigantic displays fit into the size of a normal smartphone. The S8 Plus which has a 6.2 inch screen is roughly the size of the iPhone 7 Plus which features a much smaller 5.5 inch display.
The phone does similar things that last years models did but has additional features that the killed off Note 7 had. It comes with the expected things like water and dust resistant, micro SD expansion, a beautiful Super Amoled display, a decent battery, fast charging, and much more. Apple and other companies have moved away from the headphone jack, but Samsung has kept on their phones.
I think Samsung has a bright future, but they’ll have to ensure potential customers that the battery won’t blow up like the Note 7. The design itself is nice enough to get people running into stores and trading in their old Samsung phones, but will it get iPhone users to switch over?
