Samsung Galaxy S8 vs LG G6: One Clear Advantage

Samsung Galaxy S8 owners can connect to the new Samsung Gear 360 camera to take stunning images and record videos in 4K.

The new Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ now come with notable design changes, especially the new bezel-less screen on the top and bottom of the device for more screen estate, called the infinity display.

This gives us hope of seeing dual cameras in future Samsung devices such as Galaxy S9 or Galaxy Note 8.

A video recorded by Marcianotech at the phone's launch shows a Galaxy S8′s facial recognition feature being fooled with a photo of the owner - or rather, a photo of the journalist who set themselves up as the owner.

The Galaxy S8 is due to be released in Australia on April 28 for $1199 and $1349 for the larger "plus" version.

The 2016 year will probably be one of the most memorable years for Samsung and we're not saying this in a good way.

In the United States it's possible to buy a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ which is a Microsoft Edition meaning you pick it up from a Microsoft Store on 21 April.

Our advice: If you get the Galaxy S8, don't use the facial recognition feature to lock your phone. Some of Microsoft's most popular apps are already bundled into Samsung phones, such as Skype and OneDrive.

After a lot of criticism faced by Galaxy Note 7, Samsung has chose to permanently fix the battery issues that were present in earlier phones. The increased capacity could also be used to power the suspected OLED display or rumored biometric features that have yet to be confirmed.

Siri has a new rival; the Galaxy S8 comes with Bixby, Samsung's new AI, which understands voice, text or touch.

As Samsung's top-tier smartphones, the Galaxy S8 models will challenge the latest Apple iPhones.

Both the handsets will boast 4GB of RAM and come with 64GB inbuilt storage while also supporting expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB).
