Samsung S8 Hong Kong Reviews and Features

Samsung Galaxy S8 HK (三星S8) – Your Flagship of Choice

When Samsung flagships are released, you cannot help but have high expectation for them as Samsung has emerged as the top brand in the smartphone industry. Although there were some blemishes in its history, the South Korean brand is still a favourite amongst Hong Kong smartphone users. The Samsung S8 proves once again why Samsung HK is still the leading brand in the industry.

Incomparable Visual Appeal

The Galaxy S8 sets the benchmark when it comes to smartphone aesthetics, globally recognised as the best-looking smartphones to date. The Samsung S8 is amongst the first smartphones to popularise the bezel-less design, creating a display that stretches from one edge to another which Samsung calls the “Infinity Display”. The curved Gorilla Glass on the front and the back of the device not only adds to the visual appeal, they also make the device more comfortable in the hand.

Immersive and Stunning Display Quality

Samsung smartphones have always been known for their display screens and the legacy continues with the Galaxy S8. The phone sports a Super AMOLED display with a 2,960 x 1,440p resolution that offers accurate colour reproduction and deep blacks without being oversaturated. The top-notch display quality elevates the media consumption experience on the device, making the Galaxy S8 the ultimate mobile entertainment device. Furthermore, the device is HDR-certified which means it can support high dynamic range (HDR) video content.

Cutting-Edge Internal Hardware Components

Like its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy S8 delivers flawless performance as what you can expect from a flagship smartphone. Hidden inside the body of the device is Samsung’s very own Exynos 8895 chipset that is paired with a Mali G71 GPU and 4GB worth of RAM. By default, the phone comes with 64GB worth of internal storage but if it is not sufficient enough for you, you can expand it up to 256GB via microSD. The phones can handle multiple tasks at the same time with ease and the most graphics-intensive games can be played without any lag or drop in frame rates.

Responsive and Upgraded Cameras

Despite not featuring a dual-lens setup, the 12MP rear camera on the Samsung 8 is more than capable of fulfilling your mobile photography needs. The camera has been upgraded, equipped with a new multi-frame image processor that takes three shots every time you click the shutter, thus reducing the risk of capturing blurred shots even as you move about. The primary camera takes sharp and detailed photos both during the day and at night.

The 8MP sensor in front comes has autofocus which is a rare sight on selfie cameras. The camera snaps photos that are good enough to be uploaded immediately to your social media without any editing required. Hence, if you are someone who cannot resist taking photos whenever and wherever you are, this Samsung phone is a great phone to pick up.
