ALL ABOUT SAMSUNG S8 AND S8 PLUS.
THE JAW-DROPPING LOOKS
Samsung S8 and S8 plus proves to be Vogue of the time. If you haven’t used an edged phone ever, this would be truly a different and good, in fact, the best experience for you. The display to me looks like a screen made of water. Both the phones come with the edge with a display size of S8 being 5.8-inch resolution up to 2,960×1,440 pixels and S8 plus being 6.2-inch resolution up to 2,690x 1,440 pixels. The display is made larger without extending the dimensions of both the phones.
There is no physical home button and the fingerprint scanner is embedded right next to the rear camera due to which unfortunately many times users may smudge the camera mistakenly. It was first rumored that fingerprint scanner would be made embedded in the glass display. Samsung S8 and S8 plus may have a waterproof screen.
WHAT IS BIXBY?
Bixby is Samsung’s own voice assistant. Bixby is a reboot for S voice which my last Samsung phone has. S Voice was introduced in 2012 by the company a year after Apple’s Siri was launched but SVoice fails to make footprints in the market. All new Bixby has automated intelligence feature giving a tough beat to amazon Alexa, apple Siri, google assistant etc.
Bixby is a three-parter that combines elements of voice commands with Google Now-style cards and image recognition. And each part is known by name BIXBY VOICE, BIXBY HOME, and BIXBY VISION.
The Bixby’s voice is amazon Alexa kind of component which completes day to day task asked by users via voice command but fails to access internet search when asked weather reports. Bixby voice can be controlled by side buttons on the phone and may use as a walkie talkie.
Bixby home is a shortcut auto customizable menu which displays itself by swiping left from home screen. It shows the day to day things which you love to do. Bixby home uses artificial intelligence to predict what users love to do or what users often do.
Bixby vision is a camera feature, it uses optical image recognition to extract text (OCR), identify objects and read QR codes. You can scan QR codes for shopping.
Samsung pledge a great baby experience at the operating system level.
After the famous explosive batteries of the previous Samsung phones, it is important for Samsung to make safer batteries. The company claims that S8 battery is about long-term performance rather than a short-term bench marking burst. It’s expected to hold a longer charge after 6 months, a year and two years compared to the S7. Oh Boo-keun, vice president of Samsung’s mobile R&D team said “ Where most batteries hold about 80 percent of their charge after two years, this battery should be capable of 95 percent of its original capacity.
