Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Will Sell You a Galaxy S8

Users can also transition smoothly between voice and touch using Bixby.

In comparison, the iPhone 7 Plus relies heavily on metal, with its unibody and larger bezels surrounding its display.

The Pixel features probably the best AI (artificial intelligence) to date - Google Assistant, the same AI used on the Google Home smart speaker.

Samsung, looking to make its new Galaxy S8/S8 Plus as uniquely intelligent as possible, announced this week that it has integrated Pinterest's visual search technology into its device.

What's particularly interesting is that development of the Galaxy S8 was ostensibly nearing completion back when the Note 7 fiasco was taking place.

With an incredible Quad HD+ display that stretches across the entire front of the phone Samsung is pushing the boundaries of smartphone design.

But Bixby could help Samsung create a more tightly knit ecosystem, allowing the company to better compete against its main rival, Apple, which prides itself on making devices that all work well together.

For the first time, Samsung has tried out authentication through facial recognition, although the feature has been a part of Android phones and laptops for some time now. This DeX setup is a software that will run on the Galaxy S8 models which will give it a desktop-like interface on a larger screen. Living in the competitive world of Android devices, Samsung needs to find more ways to maintain customer loyalty.

The Galaxy S8 features a larger display than its predecessor, the Galaxy S7, and sports a voice assistant meant to rival Siri and Google Assistant.

Hall also says that iPhone 8 will retain the 3GB RAM configuration on the premium variant.

It's not that the Galaxy S8 camera is going to be shabby. Thankfully, the Galaxy S8 has some alternative methods for getting into your phone, like a fingerprint sensor and iris scanner along with your standard on-screen methods. One which would initially have you believe the Galaxy S8 Plus has the advantage. The biometric approach on the S8 series seems to be another example of high-end phone features that don't translate into an improved user experience.

The consultancy also estimated global shipments of Samsung S8 will reach 60 million in the first year. May be Samsung too will do it, but with the next Note device. One thing we really need to mention though, is the curved edges.
