Samsung Galaxy S8 vs LG G6: One Clear Advantage

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will feature iris recognition, which was earlier seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which has been discontinued.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus still have the 3.5mm headphone jack, located on its lower left frame.

As it is, Bixby launches with a visual search feature, Bixby Home screen to the right of the device's main home screen and 10 native Samsung apps, with third-party integrations coming soon. I've never been especially enamoured with Samsung's Galaxy range, but the sleek and sexy S7 Edge, and now its inevitable evolution as the S8 may just sway me. But, with Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, Microsoft together with the South Korean smartphone manufacturer have made a decision to move a notch further to strengthen their partnership and decides to bring a special Microsoft edition of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

With the new Bixby AI, however, Samsung wishes to change the past.


But if the new report is accurate about its Q3 release, it might not be long before more concentrated information about the Samsung Galaxy X 2017 comes about.

So we're a little disappointed to learn that Samsung may have a similar flaw in its implementation. With one phone held up to the facial scanner with an image of the owner on the display, the phone's sensor appears to believe it's looking at its owner and unlocks the device.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has finally been revealed to much excitement with its stunning specs and latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

Like the preceding unit, the S8 still has a 12-megapixel rear camera with dual pixel features, but its front camera now has 8 megapixels. Bixby is set to take on other voice-based virtual assistants powered by artificial intelligence including Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana and Amazon's Alexa. The device will be available in Australia on 28 April.
