Samsung Galaxy S8 mit randlosem Design
Doch genug um den heißen Brei herumgeredet, denn das Highlight des Galaxy S8 ist und bleibt natürlich das Display–beziehungsweise das, wozu Samsung mit diesem „Infinity Display“ in der Lage war. Nahezu randlos erscheint das Galaxy S8, das im Gegensatz zur Grundversion der S7-Generation im Edge-Design daherkommt. Oben wie unten ist es Samsung gelungen, den Rand (Bezel) auf ein Minimum zu reduzieren, was dem Smartphone eine moderne Grundoptik verleiht.
More information: Samsung Galaxy S8 in the test
This looks very chic not only images, but also in our test video. Overall, does the Galaxy S8 visually coherent and lies well in the hand. Since Samsung has consistently gone further the path once with the Galaxy S6 and presents the so far most perfect form of this design language in the S8.
The selected optics had however resulted in that on the front no place more there for a physical home button–one of the characteristics that distinguishes Samsung smartphones since the beginning of the Android era. While the fingerprint sensor on the back before always accommodated moved, where he positioned himself next to the fortunately only even marginally herauslugende out camera, the navigation buttons now in the spirit of Google’s are virtual.
Galaxy S8: Giant display with an unusual aspect ratio
This leads to the probably most striking “trick” Samsung with the Galaxy S8 accomplishes: which has more space to give the virtual navigation keys to make the borderless front and at the same time to remain still handy, despite nominal XXL display Manufacturer on the aspect ratio of the display mounted. As already the LG G6 moved even the screen of the Galaxy S8 in the length. The date in the Smartphone industry standard 16:9 have become 18.5: 9. This sounds unusual, acts as a result but coherent.
Although the Galaxy S8 has far more screen real estate, it’s about as big as the Galaxy S7. The new generation has gained a few millimeters in height, in width, which is crucial for the one-hand operation, turns out the S8 in the Galaxy but even as narrower. That’s why inch diagonal are also no reliable information in times of the LG G6 and Galaxy S8 more effective screen size, which precludes drawing conclusions on the actual size of the housing.
Just to hold it again: the Galaxy S7 and S8 of the Galaxy are roughly the same size. Well, the display of the S7 measures notoriously meager 5.1 inches in diagonal, resulting in a handheld device. Although the S8, the diagonale is 5.8 inches per se is similar to handy. With an aspect ratio of 16:9 is already Phablet territory that, at 18.5: 9’s but goes through without any problems even as mainstream Smartphone. Of course, the effective area on the same diagonal at 18.5: 9 is less than at 16:9.
In some apps there will be certainly still display errors, because eventually everything on 16:9 has been designed. It should create, but sooner or later, if all developers respond to the Galaxy S8. Videos S8 users have to live permanently, however, with black edges, as they are by default optimized for 16:9. A little forced solution would be a zoom that cut with outer screen elements. It is questionable whether it prevails. Bottom line the user can enjoy but more display space in everyday life, without having to make big compromises in handling. Oh yes, the resolution has failed once again quite high with 2.960 x 1,440 pixels-everything else was also a surprise.
Galaxy S8: Outside hui, inside hui
The inner values of the Galaxy S8 are not quite as impressive as the rimless exterior at first glance, but need ahead of the competition to the LG G6 Huawei P10 not to hide. The Exynos 8895 produced which pulses up to 2.3 GHz is used as the processor. The OCTA-core chip made in the energy-efficient 10-nm process strikes reportedly even his American counterpart, the Snapdragon 835 from Qualcomm, which drives the Galaxy S8 in the United States. To the side there are 4 GB memory, and 64 GB of data storage. The technologies used, namely LPDDR4 and UFS 2.1, are probably the best thing to have is currently on the market.
Similarly, the camera which MP throws with 12 and above-average images able to be. This can on the one hand called dual-pixel, which speed up the auto-focus, and on the other hand, an optical image stabilizer. No harm can also with f1. 7 comparatively big fancy aperture, which allows much light and allows better shooting in optimal lighting conditions. On the front side, Samsung bought the 8 MP sensor auto focus for the first time. Here, too, the quality is more than satisfactory.
The battery may raise the one or other question mark, which is as great as in its predecessor with 3,000 mAh despite display area come to. However the more efficient SoC and other measures absorb that up to a certain point, the durations are satisfactory. The energy storage wirelessly loaded – and this is now used as by Samsung, even with fast charging. Also on board is input as mentioned a fingerprint sensor that device in the face of the new iris scanner at the front a bit at a disadvantage. In addition, is the Galaxy S8 water – and dust-tight according to IP68.

Samsung Galaxy S8: Bixby versucht die Show zu stehlen
Bei der Software macht Samsung keine halben Sachen und setzt auf ein neues Android 7.0 Nougat, natürlich zusammen mit einer eigenen Benutzeroberfläche. Das Vorzeigefeature dieser dürfte wohl Bixby sein, der neue Sprachassistent des Konzerns, der künftig alle Samsung-Endgeräte unterstützen soll. Im Galaxy S8 ist dieser dazu imstande, eine Reihe vorinstallierter Apps per Spracheingabe zu steuern und bietet obendrein ein paar erweiternde Features im Kontext der jeweils geöffneten App. Das klingt vielversprechend, ist aber unausgereift.
Samsung has a more interesting approach, however, with the iris scanner: this should unlock Biometric capture not only the iris of the eye, but, in combination with the front-facing camera, capture the face of the user allegedly and realize. When much more subtle, a feature of the virtual home button is also interesting. This is fixed pressing à la force-touch at the bottom of the screen always accessible even when off screen or full-screen playback of videos. The screen can be also switch, without having to press the power button. As accessories, Samsung offers a so-called DeX docking station through which the Galaxy S8 in the blink of an eye to a desktop computer can be turned. The station actively cool the unit to prevent overheating.
