110 Reasons the Samsung Galaxy S8 Will Be a Hot-Selling Smartphone
Samsung will hold a special media event on March 29 in New York City to introduce the Galaxy S8 smartphone. This handset will lead Samsung’s smartphone division through 2017 and could help the company restore some of its lost earnings and profits due to the recall of Galaxy Note7 devices. Although Samsung hasn’t confirmed the details about the Galaxy S8’s features, according to market chatter, this latest device will have more processing power and advanced features. There’s talk the S8 will include a voice-activated virtual personal assistant named Bixby to take on Siri on Apple iPhones and Cortana on Windows. There’s a chance that Samsung’s Galaxy S8 will deliver a large screen and a much different home button location and operation. There’s also talk that Samsung has taken the time to do extra testing to make sure the battery defects in the Galaxy Note7 handset don’t crop up in the S8.

6Galaxy S8 Plus Will Have 6.2-Inch Screen
The Galaxy S8 will ship with big screen sizes, thanks to curved displays. The smaller reportedly will have a 5.8-inch screen, 0.3 inches bigger than the iPhone 7 Plus, while the Galaxy S8 Plus will have a screen size of 6.2 inches. That additional screen real estate could mean the devices will support Samsung’s S Pen stylus.
7Expect a Reliable Battery
The Galaxy S8 will be the first Samsung smartphone offered under the company’s new battery testing regime. It will be put through the paces inside Samsung, tested (and retested) to ensure it’s reliable. If Samsung’s policies work, the Galaxy S8 could offer the safest battery the company has ever bundled in a device.

10The Competition Is Light
When it comes to new top-flight smartphones, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 will have the market pretty much to itself for much of the year. Its closest competitor, the LG G6, has some high-quality features but not the power Samsung’s handset will offer. Although a new iPhone model is due to appear later this year, we don’t know few details about its features.
11The Price Will Make Sense
The Galaxy S8 won’t be cheap. In fact, some reports suggest that the smartphone could go for $800 or more. But that might not be a problem for many customers considering its new processor and design.
