Why You Should Buy a Samsung Galaxy S8
Getting Started with Galaxy S8
The Samsung Galaxy S8 pushes smartphone design forward with a host of new and improved features that make it a very user-friendly choice. It's available in several color options, and two sizes, both with innovative features like the world's first smartphone Infinity Screen, an improved camera, a built-in personal assistant, Bixby, an invisible home button, facial and fingerprint recognition and 64GB of standard built-in storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Display
The Infinity Screen in the Galaxy S8 offers an ample, 5.6-inch display that curves beautifully from edge to edge, with no side bezels and only slight bezels at the top and bottom, to give you maximum screen, in an overall size that still fits comfortably in your hand. While its 18.5:9 aspect ratio is ideal for watching cinematic content, the Super AMOLED display with 4K resolution brings vivid detail to all your content, not just movies, with 16 million colors and 4.1 million pixels. (The screen is 14% larger than the Galaxy S7, and boasts 575,000 more pixels.)

Galaxy S8 Camera and Other Cool Features
The camera in the S8 is Samsung's best camera to date, notably upgraded over the S7 with the inclusion of a front-facing selfie camera that now captures 8-megapixel photos and has autofocus capability. Since you'll be able to take better quality selfies than ever before, you may want to optimize those shots with a selfie stick. Other features you'll appreciate include voice-activated Bixby, the intelligent interface that can learn, evolve and adapt to you to help you with a great many reminders, searches and activities; the subtle, invisible home button; DeX, the charging dock that plugs into a desktop monitor, letting you use your Samsung S8 for a proper desktop experience with keyboard and mouse; and Samsung Connect, so you can bring together, and control, a host of devices and appliances, whether you're at home or away.
On-The-Go Entertainment with the Galaxy S8
Galaxy S8 owners can use their Galaxy phones for portable entertainment like Gear VR, the phone-powered virtual reality headset that has a touchpad, focus dial, volume buttons and action buttons all built into the body. Additionally, the Galaxy S8's Bluetooth dual audio feature enables audio streaming to a Bluetooth headset, or to a portable speaker, providing a quick, easy way to share music with friends.
