There's no shame in a flagship phone having a 1080p screen, really - it's still a ton of pixels for a 5in panel, and the OLED tech gives a similarly rich and vibrant colour performance to the Samsung phone - but there's no doubt that the S8's screen showing is far more noteworthy. The crisis cost the company more than $6 billion and its global lead in smartphone sales.

While features like this haven't been proven, it could appeal to enterprises. Microsoft is also throwing in Cortana in the mix as well, which means owners will be able to select Microsoft's digital personal assistant right out of the box. Well, the same just happened with the both Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, where the two also come preinstalled with the Google Assistant out of the box. On the software side, users can now clip specific apps to the top of the screen so that, for instance, they can compose emails while reading a web page. The company says the standard S8 model has a 3,000 mAh battery while the Plus version has a capacity of 3,500 mAh.

Netflix to hit 100 million
Netflix says the opportunity ahead remains " gigantic " despite a slowdown in subscriber numbers, including global markets. But we don't think it will have much of an impact on us as Netflix is largely complementary to pay-TV packages.

Samsung recalled the phones and shipped replacements, but the newer batteries had welding defects and a lack of protective tape in some battery cells. Regardless, images and a video depicting several Galaxy S8 Plus prototypes boasting a dual camera setup can be seen below, and the devices shown in them aren't particularly eye-catching compared to how the official handset looks like. A lot of features from the Galaxy S7 carries over - water-resistant body, wireless charging and a headphone jack.

An optional docking station will turn the S8 phone into a desktop computer when connected to a regular TV. Regardless, more information on the matter is bound to follow soon as the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus will launch worldwide in less than three weeks, on April 21. "The biggest issue hobbling the company is still the trial of its de facto chief".
