    Samsung’s new display is the best yet, now with a ratio of 18:5:9, letting you see more of the picture than ever before.

  • Intelligent security

    The unique detail in your eye is used to unlock the smartphone with the iris scanner, which is even more secure than a fingerprint scanner.

Design & display

Seeing the big picture

The Galaxy S8’s Quad HD infinity display measures 5.8-inches from corner to corner, subtly wrapping around the sides of the smartphone. And, the new aspect ratio of 18,5:9 means you’ll be able to see a bigger picture than ever before on mobile. 

Flawless design

There’s no denying the Samsung Galaxy S8 is a stunning device, with a smooth glass front and back that’s easy to hold in one hand. The curved screen gives you loads of room to enjoy all your favourite apps, games and videos. And the Quad HD resolution means you’ll see every detail. 

Improved security

Privacy has never been more important, which is why, as well as a fingerprint scanner, Samsung has included an iris scanner on the Galaxy S8. It detects the unique makeup of your eyes for next-level security. 


More light for better photos

Samsung’s Dual Pixel technology lets in loads of light to make sure all your photos and videos are bright and beautiful. It can also focus in an instant, so you’ll never have a blurry shot. 

Even better selfies

Squeezed in above the massive infinity display is a powerful 8MP front-facing camera. It can record video in Quad HD resolution, and it has autofocus technology to make sure your selfies really stand out.   

Under the hood

Loads of storage

The Samsung Galaxy S8 boasts a huge 64GB of internal storage as standard, meaning there’s lot of space for all your favourite apps and games. And, by using the Google Photos app, you can save all your videos and photos to the cloud. 

Pure power

On the power front, there’s a beefy 64-bit octa-core processor, joined by 4GB RAM. Together they make sure you can do lots of things at once without any lag in between. 

All-round protection

The S8 is protected against water and dust, certified as IP68. This means that the smartphone can be submerged in fresh water at a depth of 1.5m for up to 30 minutes, without any damage to its performance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wandy from Nice to look at but VERY VERY delicate It's a very pretty phone with some lovely features nice camera not much difference from previous models to be totally honest The Bixby feature is ok tho not fully functional in the UK yet Downside to the phone that we only found out after having it a few hours is it's not made of toughened glass and glass is basically the whole phone within a few hours the phone vibrated off the sofa and fell just over a foot and cracked after googling we found out we were not alone hundreds if not thousands of people saying they had the phone less than a week and it got cracked from seemingly tiny falls (in one case a small fall onto carpet) My advice if you are considering this phone buy a good strong case first before actually purchasing the phone then maybe you will hopefully avoid our fate. I cant say I would recommend the phone now due to how delicate it is maybe go for the model below of wait for a stronger phone to be released
