Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8+ Hands-On Preview – Excellent Displays, Brilliant Design

by Alexei Rivera | March 31, 2017 2:03 am

Earlier today, Samsung unveiled their newest flagships to the world – the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The two sibling devices feature a massively overhauled pure edge-to-edge display that nearly takes up the entire phone except for small curved brackets in the top and bottom. It packs a surprisingly brilliant 2960×1440 AMOLED HDR panel that is huge at 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches but is also so easy to handle because of how small the phone is built – it is literally smaller than competitors like the iPhone 7+ or the LG G6. And that’s what makes the Korean manufacturer’s new device so compelling – a beautiful infinity display that melts into an impossibly small device, with top notch specs to boot. Check out our video preview above to see more, or read up below for the specs and price!
