Samsung Galaxy S8 Review – Things I Wish It Had

31

Having spent a considerable amount of time with the Galaxy S8, I can honestly say that I am impressed with its features. However, I feel that there are a few things that I wish I had. Some of these features include its battery life, signal quality, and design.

Display

Having received a number of complaints regarding red-tinted displays on their latest flagship, Samsung has started to roll out a software update in India to fix the problem. The update will also allow customers to make further color adjustments.

Samsung’s flagship smartphones are known for top-notch AMOLED displays. Their latest model, the Galaxy S8, will be the first smartphone with an Infinity Display. This feature will fill almost the front faces of the smartphone.

The Galaxy S8’s display is rated A+ by DisplayMate. This organization is a world leader in video diagnostics and display testing. DisplayMate publishes results based on factual data. They rate the Galaxy S8 display using data points, rather than subjective opinions.

The Galaxy S8 display has a maximum peak brightness of more than 1,000 nits. It has a pixel density of 570 pixels per inch. This is also a significant increase over the Galaxy S7’s display.

Biometric options

Unlike many other smartphones, the Galaxy S8 comes with several biometric options that you can use to unlock and log into the device. These options are available in the form of a fingerprint sensor, a facial recognition feature, and an iris scanning method. The iris scanner is one of the more secure methods and has the potential to work in the dark.

The Galaxy S8’s fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the phone next to the camera lens. However, this location is not ideal, as it is awkward and difficult to reach. In addition, the sensor can get dirty and infected, which can result in errors when unlocking the phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has facial recognition, which works through the front camera. This feature is similar to Google’s Face Unlock, but is faster and works well in low light.

Battery life

Fortunately, there are a few tips and tricks you can use to improve the battery life of your Samsung Galaxy S8. These tips should make your phone last longer, perform better, and give you more bang for your buck.

There are two main things you can do to make your Galaxy S8 last longer. First, you can lower the screen’s resolution. This will lower the workload on the processor. Also, you can turn off the Always on Display feature in your Lock screen and security settings.

The Samsung Galaxy S8’s 3000 mAh battery should last you about 12 to 24 months. It’s also a good idea to replace your battery every so often, depending on how often you use your phone. It’s best to use only official Samsung accessories, as other charging methods can damage your battery.

Design

Various leaks and images of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, have been making the rounds this week. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to have a curved edge, a glass body, and multi-layered connections.

In order to achieve a curved bezel, Samsung has cut down on the size of its bezels, which means the S8’s screen is taller. The bezels on the S8 Plus are also smaller. This design keeps the overall size of the phone at 5.8 inches.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 also features a unique fingerprint scanner. It is positioned on the back of the phone, near the camera. The fingerprint scanner has been repositioned in order to make the phone more convenient. It has also been moved from the front to the back, so there is no longer a home button.

Signal quality

Having a phone with good signal strength is important. This is especially true when you’re outdoors. You’ll have a much better time making calls with the Galaxy S8.

In the real world, signal strength can vary considerably from one area to the next. This can be problematic if you’re using a phone that’s been sitting out in the elements for too long. To improve your signal quality, try sliding the phone’s antenna out of its slot. A related solution is to get a case that has an expandable antenna. Then, keep it in a well-ventilated area and away from heavy traffic. You might also want to check out some of the newer entrants on the market like the Motorola Droid or the LG G6.
