Here are all the best features in the Samsung Galaxy S8
Samsung's new Galaxy S8 launches April 21, and we've been using it for about a week.
Expectations are high for the phone as Samsung attempts to recover from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco last fall.What can it do? Check out the phone's best features here.Advertisement
It comes in two sizes. The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8-inch screen. The Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2-inch screen.
It fits more screen on a smaller body compared to the iPhone.Advertisement
Look at all that screen.
The screen covers over 80% of the front. That means there's no more home button. You use digital keys on the screen instead.Advertisement
That big screen is perfect for videos and reading.
Even though the screen is large, the S8 is comfortable and easy to hold.Advertisement
The fingerprint sensor is now on the back. It works well, but it's in an awkward position.
Yes, there's a headphone jack.Advertisement
It's the best looking phone you can buy.
It comes with Google Assistant, the new digital helper made by Google.Advertisement
There's also an assistant made by Samsung called Bixby. But it's not as good as Google Assistant.
Bixby Vision is a new camera mode that can identify objects in the real world.Advertisement
Bixby will get voice controls in a software update later this spring. The button on the side of the S8 will launch Bixby (until then, it doesn't do anything).
You can charge the Galaxy S8 wirelessly.Advertisement
Finally, you can insert the S8 into the new Gear VR headset. The Gear VR now comes with a motion controller.
