4 Samsung Galaxy S8 Features You Don’t Have To Be A Tech Geek To Love

The new Samsung Galaxy S8’s new high-performance, eight-core processor produces excellent graphics, especially when you play mobile games. This phone also comes with earbuds and has a standard headphone jack, letting you use the equipment you already have to enjoy videos or music in private. The available microSD card gives you enough memory for almost any task, and the Bixby virtual assistant is designed to do almost everything the S8 is capable of through voice commands. This makes it one of the easiest smartphones for people to learn to use. Here are some more Galaxy S8 features you don’t have to be a tech geek to love.

A Beautiful Design

The Samsung Galaxy S8’s Infinity Display provides 5.8 inches of screen space, but the spaces around the screen are so small that the phone isn’t larger than most other models. This means you can enjoy watching videos and surfing the internet on a spacious screen without using half your purse to store your phone. If you still need a bigger smartphone, choose the 6.2-inch S8 Plus. For both models, the Infinity Display uses 83 percent of the screen.

There’s no more room for a physical home button, but using the touch screen instead is easy. The Galaxy S8’s high-resolution images look great even in direct sunlight, and its curved edges make it a fashionable accessory. Since it’s narrower than previous models, holding and using it with one hand is easier.

The front and back of the Galaxy S8 is covered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5. It gives the phone an attractive, shiny finish, helps keep it looking new, and prevents most damage caused by dropping. The S8 is also water-resistant for up to 30 minutes in as much as 15 feet of water. It comes in midnight black, arctic silver, orchid gray, maple gold, and coral blue. These colors are so pretty and the Gorilla Glass works so well that it’s tempting not to use a case for your phone, but some extra protection is still a good idea.

Biometric Security

The Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with an iris scanner, face recognition, and a fingerprint scanner. Face recognition is the quickest way to unlock your phone. Just hold it in front of your face and the camera will recognize you. The fingerprint scanner is on the back of the phone next to the heart rate monitor. You can also unlock your S8 with a password or PIN, so it’s more flexible than any other smartphone available. Use Samsung Pass to store your login credentials for online services. You can also use the Secure Folder app to save important files, images, videos, and apps.

DeX

DeX means Desktop Experience, and it’s a small, simple dock with all the ports needed to connect your phone to a monitor, a wireless keyboard, a mouse, speakers, and other desktop accessories. That way, you can enjoy all the functionality of a desktop or laptop without spending a lot of money. DeX also has a cooling fan, so you can get a great performance from your S8 even after hours of use.

Excellent Connectivity

T-Mobile’s fast, reliable 4G LTE network makes it easy to have fun and get things done with your Samsung Galaxy S8 without needing to wait for downloads. The company has the best mobile network in the United States. The new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are the first smartphones from Samsung that can provide download speeds of up to 1 Gbps when you use a compatible LTE network or a Wi-Fi access point. An S8 will give you the best possible internet speed even after you’ve used it for a few years.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 also offers wireless charging, is dust resistant, and has a better photo and video camera than previous models. With its many other durable and convenient features, you can leave your phone around your kids or spend a fun day at the beach without worrying about breakage. The versatile S8 is a great choice for almost anyone.
