Samsung’s Galaxy S8 buy one, get one free deal is better than T-Mobile’s

Galaxy S8: Buy one, get one free

Although it will have some tough competition from Apple and OnePlus later this year, Samsung's Galaxy S8 is currently the best phone of 2017. Since the phone launched last month, several deals have sprung up from retailers and mobile carriers, but Samsung just blew them all away with a deal of its own.

The Galaxy Note 8’s design may be just as exciting as the iPhone 8

Galaxy Note 8 vs. iPhone 8 Design

The Galaxy S8 has a gorgeous design, and it’s all thanks to the Infinity display that makes use of almost the entire front side of the handset. However, reports suggest Samsung could not manufacture the Galaxy S8 that it planned, and had to make various design compromises in order to ship the handset on time. Leaks revealed the Galaxy S8 was supposed to feature a dual rear camera on the back, but Samsung ditched the design. Samsung also wanted to integrate the fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy S8’s display, just like what we're expecting on Apple's iPhone 8, but those plans fell through and the sensor ended up on the back of the phone. This, in turn, forced Samsung to use a single lens camera.

The Galaxy Note 8 might fix all that, according to rumors, and there’s a new video to show us what such a device could look like.

Samsung takes you inside the Galaxy S8 in the latest design episode

Galaxy S8 Design Story

It’s time for one more Samsung story about the Galaxy S8's design, and this one concerns the internals of Samsung’s most recent jewel. The company on Friday published an in-depth look at what’s inside the Galaxy S8, even though anyone interested in such details probably already knew what’s inside of the phone. We’ve already seen the “official” iFixit teardowns for both devices, and many users took the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ apart as soon as they launched. Samsung, however, has a passion for telling incredibly annoying stories about its devices. Thankfully, however, the marketing speak is a lot lighter this time around, although there are some gems in it.

Galaxy S8 video showdown proves the US version is plenty fast

US Galaxy S8 vs International Galaxy S8

Not all Galaxy S8 smartphones are created equal. As with the Galaxy S7 before it, there are two versions of the Galaxy S8: one for the US and one for the international market. The key difference between the two phones is that the US version comes equipped with Qualcomm's 10nm Snapdragon 835 chipset while the international version features Samsung's 10nm Exynos 8895 processor.

There isn't a huge gulf between the two chips, but benchmark tests have shown that the Exynos CPU is indisputably faster than the Qualcomm component. But how much of a difference does it make?

No one really seems to know when the Galaxy Note 7 will launch again

The phone has just received Bluetooth certification, which seems to suggest a launch is imminent. However, a report from Korea says that more testing might be required before Samsung can start selling the handset again.

Repair shops can’t wait for you to break your Galaxy S8

Galaxy S8 Screen Repair Cost

It’s not a question of if the Galaxy S8’s screen will break, but more of when it will break. Various tests have shown that the Galaxy S8 can’t handle accidental drops that many other smartphones can, which means you either have to use protective gear with your phone, shell out extra cash for insurance, or put some money aside for the inevitable accident that will ruin your Galaxy S8’s display. The good news is the Galaxy S8’s screen is cheaper to replace than you’d expect, and that’s why repair shops can’t wait for you to break your phone.

The Galaxy Note 7 is about to be released for the third time

Galaxy Note 7 release date

After the initial launch of the Galaxy Note 7 went up in flames, Samsung recalled all the phones, "fixed" them, and put the Note 7 back on sale. When the fixed version exploded on a plane, Samsung gave up, recalled all the phones worldwide, and tried to forget about the whole affair.

But back in March, Samsung took everyone by surprise by saying that there's going to be a third attempt. We don't have all the details on the new Note 7 quite yet, but a set of documents released by the FCC prove that it's very much a real thing.

Galaxy S8 Bixby Rap Mocks Siri

Samsung’s voice assistant that was supposed to launch with the Galaxy S8 is finally available in South Korea. And it turns out that it has a built-in sense of humor. If you ask it to rap, Bixby won't hesitate to show you what it's got. And while it may not be immediately clear, it’ll also make fun of Apple’s Siri assistant in the process.
