What we think of the Samsung Galaxy S8
We really like the display on a Samsung Galaxy S8, it is curved, tactile glass and all together has a quality feel. We like the fact that is water resistant (rated IP68), so you could drop it in the sink and not worry about have to dry out in the airing cupboard for two weeks. The main difference between Samsung and Apple phones is that with Samsung you get expandable storage. The S8 already has 64GB so there should be enough for the majority of people to store video, pictures and music, but if you want to, you can expand up to 256GB, with an external memory card. The camera functionality is great, you can shoot video in 4K and has great image stabilisation which really helps, if like me you have a shaky hand. Security is also paramount on the Samsung S8, you not only get iris scanning, you get fingerprint scanning as well, we also like the fact that you can encrypt your phone so that if you do lose it no one will be able to steal your information.
