When will the Samsung Galaxy S8 be released?

Following announcement on 29 March, we expect the Samsung Galaxy S8 to be available to order from Carphone Warehouse around mid-April.

What's the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S8?

There are quite a few differences between the S7 and S8, but the first thing you'll notice is the display. The S8's screen is much bigger, stretching right across the face of the phone. There's also an iris scanner included above the display now for improved security.

Where is the home button on Samsung Galaxy S8?

The home button is now on the screen, because there isn't any room under it. And the fingerprint scanner, which was embedded within the home button on the S7, is now on the back of the phone, next to the camera lens.

What is the screen aspect ratio of the Samsung Galaxy S8?

The aspect ratio of the Samsung Galaxy S8's screen is 18:5:9. Compared to the S7's, which was 16:9.

Which brand of headphones does the Samsung Galaxy S8 come with?

With every Samsung Galaxy S8, you'll receive a pair of earbuds tuned by AKG in the box as standard.

What is Bixby?

Samsung's first home-grown virtual assistant is called Bixby. It lives inside the new Galaxy S8 , and it'll be arriving in the UK later this year.

Which VR headset can I use the Samsung Galaxy S8 with?

The Samsung Galaxy works with the new Gear VR (2017). To get started, use the USB Type-C adaptor to plug the phone into the mask, and you'll be taken through a tutorial set process. Make sure you're connected to Wi-Fi first, as the downloads can be quite large.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Confused Not like any other samsung I have had in the last 4 years, I have dropped this phone from sitting distance twice, with a sturdy case and it has smashed the screen both times, older versions haven't had a scratch in the years I have had them and dropped them from standing and stairs even. The on screen back button etc, is in the way of all of the app menus I use. It takes me ages to navigate my apps because the home menu keeps popping over them. oh and I can not access my music app from my home screen. Before I could switch the song easily now i have to swipe, unlock, open the app go to the home screen and change the song. Deeply confused by the design. Terrible user experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone I had! I got this a few months back, and it's been amazing! Everything still works flawlessly and I even got a Samsung DeX (I am using it to write this review.) The S8 has what I think is the best screen you can get on the phone and everything else on it works amazing!
