Location of fingerprint sensor
If you give priority an Android phone then an iPhone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be the best Android and Cheapest smartphone for you. Its awesome display, excellent cameras, powerful processor and reliable battery performance put it in the second best position of the smartphone after iPhone 8 Plus. Although this smartphone has an unmatched location of a fingerprint sensor, it has the best display you’ve ever seen on a smartphone. Actually, the company has come back with the Samsung Galaxy S8 to remove the Galaxy Note7’s fault for catching fire while charging.
The Galaxy S8 camera has the same 12MP sensor with a f/1.7 optically secure lens like its predecessor which is still incredibly impressive. Besides, Samsung improves its software processing to the same mood as the Google Pixel’s HDR+ mode. The camera performs well both in bright atmospheres and dull condition. Its camera app is covered with different modes for shooting sceneries, food photos, and slow-motion video.
Moreover, it has stickers and filters that used on Snapchat- and Instagram. You may press the power button two times to trigger the camera quickly, no matter whether your phone is locked or you are in a different app. On the other hand, the front camera has been upgraded to a new 8MP camera including a wide-angle lens and autofocus.
The Galaxy S8’s design is really impressive. Its metal casing looks premium and is inviting you to touch. While its previous the Galaxy S7 Edge had a 76-percent screen-to-body ratio, the new Galaxy S8 has the 83-percent screen-to-body ratio. For comparison, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus has just a 68-percent ratio. The S8 doesn’t seem slippery and can be comfortable to hold. But its fingerprint scanner is placed uneasily on the back.
Basically, the fingerprint scanner location is a minor complaint as the company included several key design elements such as wireless charging, the slot of Micro SD card and a water-resistant body. Unlike the previous models, Samsung has featured a 3.5mm headphone jack also. It has 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage space. Moreover, if you require more storage spaces, you can use a Micro SD card in the expandable storage slot simply.
The Galaxy S8 has 3000mAh battery which lasts for nearly 11 hours. For example, the iPhone 7 can provide nearly a nine-hour battery life only. Although the screen is larger it doesn’t affect battery life. Because the phone’s resolution setting enables less-demanding 2220 x 1080 by default.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is undoubtedly the best Android smartphone in terms of performance, design, cameras, battery life and features. It has Bluetooth 5.0 with updated features. Samsung put a lot of time, effort and soul to prepare this stunning device.
