Canadian Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Devices Now Receiving Android Nougat 7.0

Considering that Samsung had fatal issues with the battery in their last big flagship phone, you would think the company might want to make it easier for a phone fix team to get the battery out of the Galaxy S8.

The S8 model also includes a handy device management function with the help of which you can keep a tab on how much memory you are now using, the phone's battery status and the amount of available storage.

The Galaxy S8's compact design enables comfortable one-handed operation and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back and provides a durable and a high-quality finish. The smartphones also come with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, and support 256GB expandable storage through a microSD card. Samsung isn't launching a new Edge phone this year, because probably, both its new Galaxy S phones have just the right amount of curves and Edge-functionality built right into them. The aspect ratio is a little different and hence the resolution as well, coming in at 1440 x 2960.

Samsung has launched the Galaxy S8 at Rs 57,900 and Galaxy S8 Plus at Rs 64,900.

On the camera side of things, the things are unchanged from the previous year. The front camera is 8MP with Smart auto-focus and f/1.7 aperture.

For security, Samsung now offers Iris scanner and facial recognition in addition to several other standard features like a fingerprint scanner, pattern lock, and password. They run on Android 7.0 Nougat and have USB-C and 3.5mm headphone jacks. With its global launch which was set in NY on March 29th gave away free Gear VR accessories. In fact, Bixby also gets a dedicated button for itself. With that said, we would like to know what do you think about these smartphones.

According to iFixit, the only positive thing about the phone's hardware and components is that most of it seems to be modular, so you can replace them independently as opposed to having to replace an entire group.
