Samsung Galaxy S8
The average price is 55 000 rubles. The flagship from the leading manufacturer of smartphones in South Korea and the world appeared on sale in late April 2017 and today received 83% of fives according to reviews in the Yandex-Market.
Fans of the South Korean brand had to wait for a new flagship for a year( last year's flagship Galaxy Note 7 does not count, because Samsung was forced to remove this model from sales soon after they started due to battery problems) after the appearance in March 2016year Galaxy S7.As a result, the output of the Galaxy S8 caused an incredible excitement: for the first two days the number of pre-orders on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus( the increased version of the model) was 550,000 pieces( for comparison: Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in the first 2 days were ordered by 100 thousand people).Of course, the one-year waiting period of the flagship itself can not cause such an excitement, for example, Apple stably releases flagships once a year, but the sales of the seventh iPhone were rather weak due to the fact that the new iPhone was for the most part the same eggs, Only in the profile, if you compare it with the 6th iPhone. In Samsung did not repeat the mistakes of a competitor and presented a truly innovative model that can not be confused with any smartphone that is available on the market today.
Specifications Samsung Galaxy S8: 5.8-inch screen with a resolution of QHD +( 3840x2160), Android 7.0 operating system with the proprietary shell Samsung Experience 8.1, 64 GB of permanent and 4 GB of RAM.There is a slot for memory cards up to 265 GB( combined with a slot for the second SIM-card).Battery capacity - 3000 mAh. The battery life in talk mode is 20 hours, in the mode of listening to music 67 hours. We will dwell a little on these characteristics and compare them with last year's Galaxy S7 Edge. At 0.3 inches increased the diagonal of the screen, also significantly increased the resolution, while the phone itself, paradoxically, even became a little less and easier. This effect was achieved due to the fact that the screen now occupies more than 80% of the front panel area: physical buttons disappeared( they became touchscreens), the inscription Samsung, there is almost no side frames, the space freed up and took up the screen. The amount of permanent memory has doubled. However, there is a small step back: the capacity of the battery has decreased, so the battery life has become shorter, while it is about the same as, for example, the seventh iPhone. As for the cameras, Samsung decided to ignore the trend of the dual main camera in the flagship model, which was followed by Apple, Huawei, LG, and in the old fashion has one main camera, improved compared to the already excellent S7 camera. Camera S8 received a new sensor Sony IMX333 12 mp with DualPixel technology. The front camera( 8 megapixel) is equipped with a high-aperture lens for ideal selfies, even at night, and also supports intelligent autofocus with the function of face recognition. By the way, face recognition has become one of the interesting features of the S8: now you do not have to use a fingerprint scanner to unlock the smartphone, just show your face to the smartphone. There is a third way: scanning the iris of the eye( however, this method will be inconvenient in that it wears glasses or contact lenses).
