There is no limit as to where Samsung can dominate. As a matter of fact, devices from other brands struggle to compete with what Samsung produces. We have seen several companies go head to head with Samsung but fall by the wayside at the end of the day.

We have seen several smartphones from this telecom giant recently. In 2019 alone, we have witnessed several release of products from Samsung. While Samsung S10 and S10 Plus seems to be taking all the headlines, there are other devices that have equally raised a lot of eyebrow. Samsung fold seems not to have much popularity but that is one device that surely stands out from the rest.

Typical of Samsung high-end design. The S8 comes with some classy touch to front and end part of it. Truly a top-notch design in my opinion. The front side features a bezel end screen that has some chamfers on every edge. The home button is placed on the screen along with all its navigation buttons. With glass as its main material, the back side also features metal. The back comes with its superb 12MP camera that flagged by its superb LED Flash. The sides have its multifunctional buttons.

Display and Screen Size

You and I know that when it comes to display, no one has it better than Samsung. Samsung Galaxy S8 is never an exception as the device comes with a massive 2960 x 1440 display pixel. The pixel combines with its relatively large screen size to give its users a massive display quality. The wideness of the screen also provides a nice avenue for games addicts to have fun. Movies and pictures are displayed at the best quality one should expect.

Battery before now seems to have Samsung biggest undoing. This is true because the display is what consumes battery the more and Samsung has got it in excess. However, we have seen some improvement in the battery performance of some Samsung devices recently. Though in my opinion, the battery capacity of this device would have been better but it is still very good.

RAM and Processor

4GB RAM and 1.7GHz processor that burst up to 2.5GHz. All you should expect is a massive speed delivery from this product. The 4GB is to free up the device and also deliver a superb performance while multitasking. The combination of this two assures a great delivery and nice processing speed which is what every smartphone user expect.


Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a whopping 64GB internal memory space. This gives enough room to stock all your important files, music, games, apps and other important documents. The memory size can also be enlarged to any convenient size with Micro SD Card.

My Verdict

Price doesn’t necessarily define a quality product. In comparison, Samsung S9 may have a bit of higher specs. However, Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of those devices I will advise anyone to buy anytime any day.
