Samsung Galaxy S8 (64GB) [Grade A]


Samsung Galaxy S8 (64GB) [Grade A] As a smartphone industry leader, it was only going to be some time before the need to push the envelope forward. From as far back as 2014, it became largely obvious that Samsung was trying out a different design; curved edges. Boy, the curved edges get the world buzzing. The Samsung Note Edge was where it all began, but then the design was ported to the Galaxy S series, with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 having Edge editions. With the Galaxy S8, the curved edges became a standard feature on all versions of the phone. Despite the design language, is the Samsung Galaxy S8 64gb actually worth it?   Checking out the Samsung Galaxy S8 64Gb The Samsung Galaxy S8 64Gb comes with a wealth of colour options. They range from midnight black, Burgundy Red, Orchid Gray, Arctic Silver, Maple Gold and Coral Blue according to marketing communications. The midnight black looks like something Bat Man would love. He definitely can afford the price of the phones. The device is held between a glass front and glass rear that are held together by an aluminium frame. Well, definitely. TouchWiz had become the bane of existence for Samsung Galaxy devices. The S8 launched with the newer One UI which for a refreshing view, and much better for the overall experience of the device. The often fragment Android and the new One UI are powered by two different chipsets, depending on where you shop for the mobile phone. Those sold in Europe, Middle East or Africa will have the Exynos 8895 chipset, accompanied by a Mali-G71 MP20 GPU to handle all the graphics requirements. Those sold in Europe or China, you would get the phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 895 accompanied with the Adreno 540 GPU. Whichever model you bought, the performance was similar as all have 4gb of Memory. The curved screen, or as marketing communications calls it, infinity display of the Galaxy S8 is a 1440p Super AMOLED with HDR10. When you consider the display size of 5.8 inches, this makes it great for excellent colour representation and viewership experience. It is covered in Corning Gorilla Glass that perfectly complement the IP68 dust and water resistance rating of the phone. A nano sim card is required to operate this mobile phone and they are sold separately. You can rely on Bixby as your assistant if you are not a fan of Google Assistant and Samsung Pay for your financial needs. Whichever sim you choose, the Samsung S8 is capable of connecting to any network.   The Cameras Admittedly, the biggest reason to not buy a phone will not be the battery, or the screen, but the cameras. This has been evident before with people opting for the HTC Desire Eye instead of the HTC One M8. Luckily, Samsung has never had to endure that but did instead take one of HTCs innovations and made it better. That is evident when you look at the shooter at the back. Instead of going crazy with a large pixel count, you will find a 12 MP shooter at the back instead. The trick here, as HTC discovered, was to make the actual pixels larger. This meant that the cameras could do better in low light. Samsung then went ahead to make this camera capable of recording 4K video at 30 fps. If you are going to be doing that, then the 64 Gb of internal storage may not be enough as 4K video is large. At the front, you have an 8 MP shooter that is a wide-angle camera capable of shooting 2K video at 30fps.    How To Buy Ordering your new phone is as simple as clicking create your account.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus


Those searching for an Android device will probably notice that Samsung have a long and successful history. The popular Galaxy series helped Android users achieve the same level of immersion and quality enjoyed by iPhone users, while still being able to offer something original.

Both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were released back in April 2017. Aesthetically, it would be difficult to determine the exact difference between the two, but on closer inspection, there are some differences that you should be aware of before making a purchase.

Refurbished Samsung phones include what you would expect from a premium Android device, including a fingerprint sensor and NFC capabilities. In this regard, there will be little reason as to why any difference should be seen between the two devices from a performance perspective.

Although the Galaxy S8 offers slightly better specifications, this isn’t to say that it’s the most suitable choice in every instance. An overview of the differences between the two devices is as follows.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Specifications


The Samsung Galaxy S8 contained a 5.8-inch super AMOLED screen that can deliver a resolution of 1440 x 2960. A rear camera offers dual-pixel 12MP while the front-facing camera is still impressive at 8MP.

As well as taking high-quality photographs, the Galaxy S8 can also capture video in the following formats, along with slow-motion support.

·         4K

·         1080p HD


·         720p HD

Performance is also impressive thanks to 4GB RAM and an Octa-core processor, making it the ideal device for those that loving gaming on the go. The 3,000 mAh battery allows for up to 20 hours of talk time, although users do need to consider other usages, such as browsing the Internet and online gaming.

The Samsung S8 64gb price is bundled with Android Nougat, which can be updated to Android 10. The 64GB memory is expandable to 256GB via the use of a MicroSD card.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus Specifications


As with other iterations of the Galaxy series, the main difference between the S8 and S8 Plus is the size of the screens, which now measures 6.2 inches. There is also an improvement made when viewing videos thanks to the addition of a Quad-HD display which delivers a resolution of 2960 x 1440.

Another area of improvement is the size of the battery, which is now 3,500 mAh, allowing for 24 hours of talk time. Although a slightly larger battery may not be a deciding factor for some, some would welcome the addition of a bigger battery, especially those that enjoy consuming media on their device.

The main differences between the two handsets are the display and the battery. As both the screen and battery are larger with the S8 Plus, consumers can expect to pay slightly more when it comes to price.

However, the price paid for the Samsung S8 plus 64gb is worthwhile if you’re constantly running out of power, or just want to get the best from your media experience.
