Ladies and Gentleman the time is finally here!!! Samsung has just unveiled their newest models of smart phones. We have all been waiting for this day, unless you are an apple user of course. This really isn’t going to be a review, this is just going to be a very short reaction article to what I think of the upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8+.

We all know that Samsung has made phenomenal products when it comes to T.V’s and of course phones. Sometimes, they don’t make fantastic products, which of course is the notable Galaxy Note 7 that exploded all over the news, because it actually exploded. Now Samsung is back and they have promised us that we are in no danger when it comes to exploding devices. They have said that all of their phones have been put through a 8 point battery safety check, which apparently is the biggest that they have ever done. Samsung has shown of their 2 new phones, the S8 and S8+ during its launch event. The event is pretty long, but if you don’t feel like watching all of it and want to see a quick summarization of the event, make sure to check out The Verge 10 minute video showcasing the phones and the new items that they are releasing.

When it comes to the S8 and S8+ there are some notable differences when it comes to size for example,

Now me personally, I have an iphone. Yes I know I am weak, but I used to have a S7 Edge, and honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t enjoy it. Now that Samsung has finally revealed its Infinity Screen, I know for a fact that I am going to be switching back to android. The one thing that I am really looking forward to is Bixby. Apparently Bixby is going to be able to tell you what an item is and be able to inform you about that item. So for example, let us say that you are shopping around for a bike, and you see the bike that you want, but do not know a lot of information about it Bixby allows you to take a photo of it, and it lets you know what kind of bike it is and it also shows relatable items. This feature is going to be phenomenal and it learns more as you use it. The phones are set to launch April 21, 2017. Some retailers are already taking pre-orders on the phones so if you want it, you better act quickly before they run out, which I highly doubt but you never know I mean they ran out of the Iphone 7’s so make sure you pre-order today!
