Copycat much?

Images from Samsung website

The latest Samsung phone has been released and I can't help but feel they've gone the extra mile in copying Apple. I mean the Samsung brand has never had a "+" range in their mobile phones.

Anyway... the new Samsung phone comes in 2 models, S8 and S8+

What's really nice is that Samsung has really "upgraded" the phone (normally they jut redesign the phone design slightly and a new OS which is quite the same as the phones predecessors, no biggy 😒). The new S8 has some pretty cool features:

  • Infinity Display
    • The phones screen display is end-to-end (side-to-side) , forming a completely smooth, continuous surface. The phones screen flows from edge-to-edge seamlessly into the phones aluminum shell. 
  • Camera
    • 12MP rear camera and the 8MP front camera 
  • Iris Scanning
    • The name itself sounds cool - well this feature basically goes beyond finger scanning and unlocks to your eyes only (I would love to try this!)
    •  (fyi: iris is the colored circle shape of your eye)
  • Performance
    • Includes the world's first 10nm processor. 
    • Efficient Battery. 
    • Expandable storage
    • Ability to work through rain and dust.
  • Bixby (my favorite feature on this phone)
    • Its a Samsung version of Siri but a bit advanced (it understands talk, text, and taps) 
    • Changes the way you search - just show Bixby what you want by opening your camera app and it locates whatever you're looking for.

I really love the Bixby feature - can't wait for the launch of the phone, currently on pre-order mode, not sure of the exact dates of release. I have to say though, I hope this one doesn't burn out, Samsung can only take so much of bad publicity #crossingfingers
