    Vivek on | Mar-2019

    Hello, I want to write a review on my long awaited smartphone - the Samsung Galaxy S8. I bought it in March 2019 for a discounted amount of 27K with exchange, & is absolutely worth it! Here's why: * Premium flagship phone with superb build quality, made of metal & covered with Gorilla glass 5 all around (front & back) * Wide QHD + Super AMOLED Infinity display, with razor sharp 2940x1440 resolution & curved display * Bixby voice assistant * IP68 rated dust-proof and water-proof * Wireless charging * Brilliant 12MP rear camera & reasonably good 8MP front camera * Very good speaker sound quality * Premium AKG earphones * Adaptive fast charging * Advanced security features like face unlock & iris scanner, along with traditional methods like fingerprint sensor & pattern/pin lock Many of the above mentioned features are unavailable in "budget flagship" smartphones like the Oneplus 6T. Also, I got it for almost 10K less than the Oneplus 6T, as the S8 was being sold at a discounted price with exchange offer. Please do note that the smartphone is a fingerprint magnet & the position of the fingerprint scanner is awkward - very near to the rear camera & hard to reach. Also, there are complaints that the backup from the 3000 mAh battery is poor, although I found it good enough. Still, if you want to conserve battery life, you can always use the "Max battery life" mode, lower the brightness & lower the resolution to HD+ from WQHD+. The display is absolutely the best of any smartphone out there, excellent for watching movies & videos in very high resolution & superb color reproduction. Hope this small review helps you in making your S8 buying decision easier :)
