Samsung Galaxy S8

 

Now, back to present time. The LG G6 has been around for some time, and we also asked you to look beyond the diagonal in our Galaxy S8+ review earlier this week. Displays are getting taller and breaking out of the 16:9 box they were trapped in for a few years now. But while LG opted for a square times-two 18:9 ratio, Samsung went with 18.5:9, because why not.

Both of this season’s premium Galaxies are in this bizarre 2.06:1 aspect, but the regular S8 is petite. It’s a millimeter wider than an iPhone 7 with a screen surface of some 40% more than the small-sized Apple (that’s real estate, not diagonal, so it isn’t apples to oranges). Put the S8 next to an S7 and the new one is actually narrower, and visibly so. So from the get go we’d say that the S8 has the most screen you can get in a phone this size, and even a few sizes up.

The flat S-series design is no more. This year’s phones both feature the signature Samsung curved screens. Ever so subtle and nothing like the Note Edge that started it all. Evolution.

This very much finite Infinity display is what makes the headlines, but it’s not without a consequence. The Home button is history – in its place an onscreen navigation bar, the fingerprint sensor relocated, the pressing sensation emulated (sort of) by haptic flutter.

The screen aside, there’s the habitual bump in processing power, courtesy of a brand new 10nm chip – be it Samsung’s own Exynos, or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon (still manufactured by Samsung). RAM has stood still at 4GB (though certain regions may get a 6GB version), and an 8MP autofocus front-facing camera replaces the 5MP fixed-focus shooters that were around for far too long on the company’s flagships.
