A Fundamental Design Brilliance
The Samsung Galaxy S8 exhibits a fundamental major design change with slim, sleek, glossy appearance, and chiselled corners deliver brilliance and truly an aesthetic profile. Samsung has intelligently put to use the premium materials such as metal and glass to construct a beautiful device. It is truly a flagship device equipped with all the contemporary features such as a 5.8-inch quad-HD Infinity AMOLED Display, and fairly powerful battery capacity of 3000mAh complemented with the wireless and fast charging function.

A Vivid Display Screen 
With Samsung Galaxy S8 the most captivating feature is the display screen as it occupies most of the facial panel of the smartphone. The display is the hallmark feature of the Samsung Galaxy S8 with tall and narrow physical profile, excellent output with pixel-rich composition. The AMOLED panel delivers deep, inky blacks and incredible contrast, which make images and video really pop. Colours are vivid, without appearing too unnatural, things have really come a long way from the overly vibrant hues of early OLED phones.

Fast, Seamless & State-Of-The-Art
Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the very first smartphones furnished with the latest version of Exynos chipset in this flagship device. Samsung Galaxy S8 features "iris recognition sensor" being the next-level technology to the fingerprint sensor. The device features the IP68 rating, 3.5mm headphone jack and USB-C port. From a physical perspective, the smartphone has a curvaceous body that feels great in the hand. The curved glass front and back tucks into a shiny alloy band, giving the phone an organic look and feel. The lack of any visible bezel makes the S8 the smartphone equal of an infinity pool.

Revamped Finger-Print Scanner
The fingerprint scanner within Samsung Galaxy S8 is no longer part of a physical home button. Previously Samsung's trademark lozenge-shaped home button has been submerged under the screen and it is now a pressure-sensitive button. This has resulted in freeing up screen space yet the pressure sensitive home button provides tactile feedback when pressed, and the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back panel of the device.

One of the most noticeable changes here is to the app tray, however, swipe the finger up or down from the main display and phone leads to the hordes of apps. It delivers a nice way of doing things and feels very natural.

A Power-Pack Battery
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is equipped with a 3000mAh battery and non-removable. The battery has been designed in a way that it shall service all the functions such as gaming, multi-tasking while offering ample time for stand-by and talking.

Impressions
