Samsung Galaxy now come in two different screen sizes, S8 has the 5.8inches screen while the S8 Plus has the 6.2inch screen. However, lots of tech reviewer who are able to hold the phone at the unboxing event said that it was pretty easy to hold the phone with one hand.

  1. Gone are the home button (the bottom bezel). The home button technically still there, just that it is underneath the screen now and when you press hard, it will give you feedback and bring you back to your homepage. (Virtual Button).
  2. The fingerprint is at the back now, beside the camera.
  3.  IRIS Scanner is there now!
  4. Screen resolution is the same on both phone however now it will be able to play HDR+ mode. It will depend on the video provider. (Netflix and etc)
  5. Dual Pixel camera, for better low light performance and improved camera processing software.

I am currently using S7 Edge for awhile now, which I am totally in love with it. 
Samsung always produces the best screen which making viewing video so pleasurable.

Even though last year wasn't the best year for Samsung due to the faulty battery incident. However, i believe that they have increased their quality check on every phone hence I still have FAITH in their product!.
I guess I will have to wait patiently for it to arrive in Singapore so that I can feel it personally. Be sure to wait for my hand on post/video and maybe I will buy one myself. 

*Wink Samsung SG* I am waiting for you to contact me =p
