Samsung Galaxy S8 Hands On: The Infinity Phone

“How do we leverage intelligence to do something productive and helpful?” That’s the question Samsung put to itself when designing the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and the result is a device that has the potential to become the best smartphone of 2017. Compared to its forerunners, the Galaxy S8 shows you more, listens better … and even plays computer. Join MrMobile for more first impressions in the Samsung Galaxy S8 Hands-On / Galaxy S8+ Hands-On, and stay tuned for the Galaxy S8 Review coming soon!

MrMobile’s Samsung Galaxy S8 Hands-On/Galaxy S8+ Hands-On was produced following an hour-long hands-on session with a Galaxy S8 review device and a Galaxy S8+ review device at a media briefing hosted by Samsung. The devices were running preproduction software and the Galaxy S8 Hands-On contains no final purchase verdict (which will arrive with the full Galaxy S8 review later in the season).


Testing on a newer review device shows the main sensor to be an IMX333, not the same sensor as last year’s (as I was told it was by Samsung in the initial briefing). More on this in the full review. (Thanks to Sammobile for the initial reporting on this.)
