Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ hands-on: First encounter

29 March 2017
After a month of what seemed like never ending barrage of leaks, Samsung has finally (and officially) announced its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. This marks the company's first major smartphone release since the sad demise of the Galaxy Note7 last fall, which prompted the company to implement a new 8-point battery safety check to the S8 and all future devices.

Cassy O, 30 Mar 2017LOL, 960fps video recording is gimmick in my opinion because i n... moreFYI the XZ Premium using the display panel to do the 4k shifting it is saving more energy to switch between FHD. The 960fps video is for creative user. The hi-res audio is for audiophile. The IMX400 is for Xperia XZ Premium and XZs not S8 or S8+.

S8 is built on 10nm process and is 30% power efficient. 3000mah batteries suffice.

I have owned a several phones as well, LG G5 is one of them.

I feel confident to say: Samsung AMOLED has yellowish tint (especially for white color) where LG IPS is not.
