The much awaited phone is being touted as the saviour for the brand’s image !!
By the time this column is out , each one of you will have reams of information about the all new phone that must play the role of being the saviour of the Samsung name and honour . Everything about the S8 was leaked a few weeks back and some of it turned out to be true . Finally in a very glitter and glam event , the much awaited and anticipated phone turned from theory to reality .
Stunning design , almost zero bezel around the screen , absoluetly brilliant curvy HDR display with an unusual 2960 * 1440 resolution and aspect ratio of 18.5:9 . Too much screen in front forced the finger print scanner is right next to the camera . Gorilla Glass 5 in front and back and rather large amount of security systems including Iris , face , finger , pattern and password . Strangely , no major upgrade in camera optics from the S7 has been done yet the instagram beauties will fall in love clicking pictures all way long as this also works like a Go-Pro camera . They’ve gone and called their all new personal voice assistant Bixby . A cool add-on is the Dex dock that coverts your phone into a full desktop system . And , the battery has almost zero chances of exploding as Samsung played safe and went with just 3000mAh .
Vs the I phone 7
S8’s beats the iphone 7 on display , design ,bezel-less front screen and in hand feel . The iphone’s design and looks feel truly antiquated infront of the S8’s very modern lines . Also better IP ratings for the S8 means it’s more robust in terms of water and dust resistence . In optics the Iphone has dual cameras but the S8 has better F stop aperture rating at 1.7 and an autofocus front camera . Bixby wins the war on strangely-named voice assistants , but Siri has never won any accolades for being a great name either . Dex is definitely a huge move forward for desktop level apps . Plus , the S8 has a 3.5mm headphone jack and the Iphone dosen’t . So, right now , the S8 is ahead of the Iphone 7 .
Vs the Google Pixle
The pixel looses in design to the S8 massivley , and comes nowhere near in terms of display and screen but plays up well in optics , battery and overall performance . Pixel spirals down due to no MicroSD slot which the S8 does have . Pixel does strive ahead as it’s a pure play Android Nougat OS and will get updates way faster than the S8 . Battery life on the Pixel is also way better . Bixby and Bixby vision seem to be streets ahead of Google Assistant in terms of features , but they need to be tested to see if they deliver . So , as of now , the S8 beats the Pixel hands down too .
Vs the One Plus 3T
Kudos to One Plus that a phone at almost half the price of the big guys is constantly featured in all top of the line shootouts . And the 3T does do a great job to take on the S8 . In design , screen , IP ratings and overall performance , S8 is ahead . 3T brings it back with 6GB RAM , very good ptics and better battery . But one Plus needs to bringout the One Plus 4 to really take on the might of the S8 .
Vs the LG G6
The G6 is the only phone that comes close to the S8 in terms of bezel , thin border , great screen and aspect ratio . It has a dual camera at the back and expandable memory too .But i n terms of performance and design , it can’t hold a torch to the S8 . If LG finally learns how to market their phones , G6 could be a contender .
Vs the Iphone 8 /X/ 10 / Edition
Well , just a poor comparison to do as this becomes a comparison of a real phone versus one that is purely being built inside people’s mind . Also , the real war will be between the then released Note 8 and the new Iphone . One little wager I’m willing to take though . The new Iphone won’t have a home button and won’t have a ” anywhere onscreen fingerprint scanner .” Thus , the only place for the FPS will be unfortunately at the back too !
The S8 has got great momentum out of the start gates , has people very excited and thus has pushed all the right buttons to sell it in huge numbers .
