Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ : What I Found Out in 7 Days

The newest addition to the Samsung Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+, have been finally released. I had a chance to use both of them for a week.

Jul 20, 2017

Android smartphone Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ came out to the market. I used these highly evaluated high performance models for 7 days to see their abilities.

The Galaxy S8 with 5.8-inch display (left) and the Galaxy S8+ with 6.2-inch display (right). Specifications other than the display size are almost the same.

Unique form with vertically long rounded OEL display

The Galaxy S series from Samsung always draw attentions from the world as flagship models.

It has vertically long form with 9:18.5 display ratio and infinity OEL Edge display. It no longer has a physical home button. You can see their challenge to change the impressions we have of smartphones.

The Edge Display with smooth curves on the sides is succeeded.

The Galaxy S8 series has an OEL edge display with rounded sides. The display ratio has been changed to 9:18.5 unlike most common display ratio of 9:16, so its silhouette is characteristic with its thin and long look. It comes with two sizes; the Galaxy S8 with 5.8-inch display and the Galaxy S8 with 6.2-inch display. They do have slight differences in battery capacity and LTE communication functions, but the basic specs like CPU and camera are the same.
The Galaxy S8 is about 68 x 149 x 8.0 (WHD, mm) and it weighs about 150g. The Galaxy S8+ is about 73 x 160 x 8.1mm (WHD, mm) and it weighs 173g. It has an IPX 5/8 water resistant rating and IP6X dust resistant rating. They basically have the same design. Because they have vertically long edge display with no bezel, even though they have big displays, it still has a slim body. The width of the Galaxy S8 is as narrow as smartphones that have a display size a little smaller than 5 inches, and the width of the Galaxy S8 is almost the same as smartphones that have a display size a little smaller than 6 inches.

The big difference between the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ is their size. In addition, the battery capacity of the Galaxy S8 is 3,000mAh whereas the Galaxy S8+ is 3,500mAh.

Comparison of the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ (left) that has a width of 73mm and the 5.7-inch Nexus 6P that has a width of 77.8mm. The Galaxy S8+ is outstandingly slim for its display size.

Let's look at their displays. The resolution is 2960 x 1440 (WQHD+) for both models. But they have three display resolution options, and it is set at 2220 x 1080 full HD+ by default. The OEL panel has benefits of quick response, contrast ratio and thinness, but it is easily affected with brightness and causes color cast when its brightness is set dark. However, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ don't have problems of color casting much even when they are set dark, and they are highly defined. Also, for OEL displays, its color is warm and it looks natural to those who are used to LCD. It had a problem of not having enough brightness but it has been improved with these models. Having said that, the visibility in bright environment is still not as good as LCD with back lights.

Three options for display resolution; 1480 x 720 HD+, 2220 x 1080 FHD+ and 2960 X 1440 WQHD+

Compared to phones with OEL displays, the Galaxy S8+ (left) and the Nexus 6P (right), you can see that the Galaxy S8+ looks warmer in color. (The brightness is set auto with both.)

No complaints for basic performance and functionality. It has new technologies like Bluetooth 5.0 and iris scanning.

The Galaxy S8 and the S8+ have not only fingerprint scanner and face recognition but iris scan as well. It has three kinds of biometric authentications. Iris scanner is introduced for the first time with the Galaxy series. Also, for face recognition, they use Samsung's original technology and not the standard function of Android OS.
With iris scanner, you can unlock the phone easily and speedily just by holding up the phone close to your face. But as for accuracy, the chance it fails to recognize increases when you are wearing glasses or are in different lighting environments like outside. By taking some patterns, the accuracy gets better and practical.

Infrared camera for iris recognition is located next to the front camera. It can be used in dark environments.

As for charging, it supports QuickCharge 3.0, and both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ can be charged fully in amazingly-short 110 minutes. Also, they support Qi, so they can be charged wirelessly. Wi-Fi is high in performance; they support IEEE802.11a/b/c/n/ac and 2 x 2 MIMO.

As for specifications, it has the newest Qualcomm octa-core CPU Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 (2.35GHz x 4 + 1.9GHz) with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and microSDXC memory card slot up to 256GB. The OS is Android 7.0. With Antutu benchmark, the overall score the Galaxy S8 got was 166,508 and the Galaxy S8+ got 164,803. The smartphones with its previous CPU Snapdragon 820 scored about 140,000, so it means it has scored 20,000 points more. Looking at the details of the sub scores, the improvement on imaging performance is especially big. With 3D, it scored about 67,000-68,000, and with CPU, it scored 37,000, which means they have scored about 10,000 more on each item.

The left is the score of the Galaxy S8, and the one in the center is of the Galaxy S8+. Because they have the same basic specification, their difference is within error margin. Compared to the Xperia XZs (right) that uses a CPU from a generation before, you can see that their overall score got better.

I logged and monitored the CPU's temperature. In the 7 days I was using these, the hottest temperature recorded was 35.4 degrees Celsius. This was when I updated the software while connecting to an AC adapter. For usual use, it was about a little over 30 degrees Celsius. The phones themselves didn't get heated much, and they hardly ever got warmer than human body temperature. I can say they are less likely to get overheated.

The transitive graph of the recent five days during my 7-day trial. 35.7 degrees Celsius was the highest which was recorded when connected to the Internet on and off while using an AC adapter. Other than that, it was about 30 degrees.

It has original factors like AI assistant Bixby which is getting attention, UI and other apps.

When other Android phone users start using the Galaxy S8/S8+, they would realize they have many original operations. Firstly, the biggest difference is where the buttons are located. With Android smartphones, the buttons on the front are return, home and task from left. But with these, they are task, home and return from left. The button on the left and right are switched. Also, recent smartphones have shared design for setting and notification menu, but these have original ones.

Also the web browser set as default is not Chrome which is common for Android smartphones but Samsung's original Browser. The Browser allows you to make the screen larger or smaller freely, which Chrome doesn't. But you cannot sync password or bookmarks that are saved on cloud server, so if you are replacing an Android smartphone from another maker with these, you might get muddled.

In terms of apps, you cannot forget about the new assistant software Bixby that supports voice input. Bixby works with many apps, and it has its special button on its side; you can see Samsung is putting effort in here. Having said that, as a personal assistant, Google's Google Now is one step ahead. Also, Google Assistant debuted only recently, so even though there are slight differences, I cannot deny they are very similar features.

Again, their cameras are good with nighttime photos. The sub camera has AF, too.

Let's have a look at their camera functions. Both of them have the same cameras; the main camera is a 12.2MP dual pixel camera with F1.7 lens. So it basically is the same as the Galaxy S7 edge. On the other hand, the sub camera now is more highly defined, improved from 5MP to 8MP, and the lens is F1.7, large aperture lens same as the main camera. It supports 2560 x 1440 video recording, and it focuses on subjects automatically. The performance has been improved.

The specification of the main camera is basically the same as its previous model, the Galaxy S7 edge.

The sub camera has been improved to 8MP. It is great for those who enjoy taking selfies.

Scenery taken with the main camera (auto mode, ISO 500, F1.7, 1/10 seconds). You can easily take night view photos with little noise and camera shakes.

The best among this seasons' high-end smartphones. It is difficult to choose which to go for, the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8+.

Above is my review on the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ after using them for a week. OEL displays, which Samsung is good at, can show its merit of being big and easy to hold by being made vertically long. Not only do they have great processing performance, they have great battery life and have no over heating problems. I cannot see any disadvantages.
Their rival would be the HTC U11, which has the same CPU and similar resolution, or the 4K smartphone Xperia XZ Premium and the Sharp AQUOS R. All these are attractive models with high specification, but the Galaxy S8 / S8+ are slightly better with their good battery life and easiness of holding.
Actually, which to choose between the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8+ is more problematic. The Galaxy S8+ is easy enough to hold, and you wouldn't feel any disadvantages of a big device, but they have a price difference. It is up to your preference and budget.

About Samsung Galaxy S8

Summary

Samsung Galaxy S8 – the latest flagship from Samsung will fill in for the literally explosive Note 7 last year. And they have done everything possible to make this device a benchmark with features opening a whole new world of smartphone technology.

Samsung Galaxy S8: The New Benchmark to Smartphone

From the very first look, Samsung Galaxy S8 catches the imagination. There are no physical capacitive buttons. The borders smoothly cast the front and rear sections where the latter comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass Cover. Composed completely of metal, contours blend throughout its body seamlessly and beautifully. The dimensions is coming in at 148.9 x 68.1 x 8.0 mm (5.86 x 2.68 x 0.31 inches), it weighs perfectly at 155 grams.

Summing it up, this device is imagination simplified into the smartest most compact format possible. And it all starts with the display screen.

Breaking Free with Infinity Display:

There are no bezels to this 5.8-inch curved AMOLED display – it curves round the corners. Samsung Galaxy S8 takes the curved display functions in its previous generation to the next level. It curves right around before it's smoothly cut off by the encasing.

Dubbed as 'Infinity Display', this technology is simply - Next-Gen. It completely deletes bezels. The FHD+ resolution (2960 x 1440 pixels) can be maximized to 4K quality (3840 x 2160 pixels). With a pixel density of 570 PPI (Pixels Per Inch), experts are already rating this as the best smartphone display which you can buy.

To the Future with no Physical Buttons:

Gone are the capacitive touch buttons. Samsung Galaxy S8 will have all first-base UI functions on-screen. Starting with an AOD (Always on Display), users will move on to further functions via intuitive touch and flick functions. Other than showing the primary basics on-screen, you can access home and apps interfaces through simple directional touches. Further in-depth functions will have button-like touch controls on the display module.

Benchmarking Camera Setup:

Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a 12 MP primary camera featuring the latest Dual Pixel Sensor allowing it to achieve ultra-fast PDAF speeds and quality with sharper results than previous generations. A f/1.7 aperture, 1/2.5 inch sensor size and 1.4 µm pixel size is coupled with a lens with a focal length of 26 mm. In short, this shooter can take accurate real-life stills which can rival DSLRs. Added OIS allow optimal 4K video quality. The front camera is an 8 MP with the same aperture. It comes with an added Smart Auto-Focus function easing selfies.

Latest New-Gen Processor Specs:

Samsung Galaxy S8 boasts another industry first - a 10 nm processor setup. This device will have 2 processor setups as per the market concerned. There are more than a few things which need to be taken into when it comes to the choice of processor.

It can be the latest-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or an Exynos 8895 setup. Both of these will be Octa-Core setups as obvious. Expected clock speeds are around 2.35 GHz. This setup will come with an Adreno 540 in all probability.

Processing performance-wise, there are few devices which can match with this setup. Buyers can expect zero-lag visuals and seamless functions in 4K resolutions without the slightest lag.

Say Hi to Bixby:

Bixby is Samsung's home-grown UI setup. Incorporating basic tri-modal user functions (talk, text and taps) – this artificial intelligence platform automates tasks such as searches, info phishing and so on via these 3 command formats. Bixby is another step towards incorporating AI into mobile devices.

Storage Options with a Hybrid SIM:

Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a single memory configuration of a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Extendable options come in the form of a SIM slot with hybrid functions, i.e. it's compatible with a micro SD card.

Wireless Charging:

A 3000 mAh battery powers this device which you can charge via a powering dock.

Additional Features:

Iris scanner, Fingerprint scanner, IP68 Dust-Water Resistance Ratings, AKG HQ Audio Output etc.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Review for the Philippines Market:

Philippines have come up as a vital mobile device market with multiple rising manufacturers and a growing consumer market. Samsung Galaxy S8 is a flagship device with more than one industry-leading feature. This is the most-awaited smartphone, and it's going to be available in Philippines by May.
