Overview Samsung Galaxy S8

Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8 introduced a company Samsung in March 2017. It has Android version 7.0 Nougat, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it.

Well, what can I say, Samsung Galaxy S8 is a smartphone of 2017 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Samsung Galaxy S8. The case is protected from water and dust, you can safely use your smartphone in a few extreme situations (for example, during rain or in the bathroom, taking a shower). On the front side of the case is located big enough Super AMOLED screen with diagonal 5.8″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 3 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Frontcamera on 8 MP. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Samsung Galaxy S8 is available in two versions with different processors: the first — 8-core Exynos 8895 Octa, and the second — 8-core Snapdragon 835. The amount of RAM in it is 4 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 64 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSD up to 256 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.
