Top 10 Features of the Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is practically a household name amongst Android users and it’s clear why. The phone plays host to a wide selection of excellent features underneath its attractive exterior, but what do we feel are the top 10 features of the Samsung Galaxy S8?

1. The Infinity Display
More of a aesthetical feature, the infinity display gives the handset a elegant feel and makes the 5.8” screen look considerably larger that it really is. A nice look for a smaller handset in a plus size world of smartphones.


2. 8MP Selfie Camera
Samsung have bettered the front facing camera on the S8 increasing it from the 5MP camera on its predecessor, to an improved 8MP camera with autofocus capabilities – a selfie lovers dream!


3. Split Screen Multi-Tasking
A multi-taskers paradise, the split screen capability allows for you to do two things at once on a single screen. So you can continue that group convo all while watching the latest episode from your favourite TV series.


4. Always On Display
Handy for checking the time without touching any buttons on your phone, the always on display has its uses but did you know it can do more? You can download more themes from your Samsung Apps portal and change things such as your calendar and wallpaper plus much more.


5. Single Hand Friendly Screen
Can’t quite reach the top corner of your screen when you’ve only got the one hand free? We’ve all been there. Thankfully, Samsung have given a solution to this; their single hand friendly display, reducing the screen size to a more manageable screen that shrinks to the corner of your handset.


6. Pro Mode in Camera
The 12MP rear facing camera with additional features is great but the Pro Mode makes the camera even better. This setting gives you complete control over your phones camera where you can modify everything from the ISO rating and white balance, to the shutter speeds and focus points.


7. Search for Anything
This handset packs a lot of memory which means you can hold a lot on your phone such as music, apps and more. That’s where the ‘search for anything’ comes in handy. Using the toolbar, you can find anything you want stored on your phone, just by searching it – how useful is that!


8. Fun Screen Unlocks
The S8 lets you unlock you handset through iris recognition but if this is not cool enough for you, why not make things a little more entertaining by choosing a fun filter. There are several options from cute animal features, to sci-fi inspired filters!


9. Bixby
Better than any other assistant, Bixby bring intelligence to your phone. It learns about you, what you like, what you do and personalises your experience based on your wants, needs, lifestyle and habits.


10. Dust and Water Resistant
It’s also IP68 rated meaning it is resistant to dust and water, so don’t stress over the spilled drink, the S8 is designed to endure the mishaps of everyday life.
