Samsung’s S-Series and Note-Series devices have always been a focal length of the company thanks to the highly latest technology configuration and innovative software which entirely increase the performance of the phones. Two years old Samsung Galaxy S8 Australia still shines on stores in Australia and entice users to get their hands on one.

The had something quite special at the time of launching – very much like every year with S-series devices. It offers a stunning and bright display, a plethora of lovely colour reproduction that takes your enjoyment to a new level when watching movies or playing games.

The display is bigger in size as compared to Apple iPhone 8 Plus, which feels more like the iPhone 8. It’s not deniable that Galaxy S9 is less remarkable and the reason is that Apple has entirely switched to the all-screen design with its gorgeous phones such as iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The key feature of Galaxy S9 are related to 5.8-inches Super AMOLED display, Upgradable to Android 9.0 Pie OS, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 for the U.S. and Exynos 8895 for the rest of the world, 4GB RAM and 12MP rear camera. What else does it bring along? Let’s keep going to find out below!

Operating System and Features:

The S8 is a high-end phone equipped with the Samsung Infinity 5.6-inch screen, the Exynos 8895 eight-core 4GHz SoC and 64GB internal storage with 256GB expansion. Its 12Mp rear camera captures beautiful pictures even in low light conditions.

This smartphone is also able to film in 4K videos. Finally, this flagship of 2017 has facial recognition, a fingerprint reader and recognition of the iris. Suffice to say that it is a complete smartphone, powerful and durable with a 3000MaH battery.

Camera, Storage, and Battery:

This mobile comes with a single front and back camera. It has the 12 megapixels of back camera and 8 megapixels of front camera. With the help of Dual Pixel technology, the camera's development is efficient and manages to focus on the object almost instantaneously.

The clichés are also taken pretty quickly. But the main advantage of the camera is its ability to take pictures in low light. Thanks to its wide opening, low-light shots retain a lot of detail and the result is remarkable. It's way better than the Xperia Z5 for the shot. Besides, for daytime photos, it's the same. With its HDR rendering, it is able to capture very small details and beautiful colours.

The unit is also equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage capacity. It's a pretty classic combination that works well. The plus is that as we said, it is possible to expand the storage capacity up to 256 GB using a micro SD. Battery level, it is still correct compared to what is done today. With 3000mAh, you can use your phone for a day in classic use.

But with a few games and a little streaming, it may be complicated. Where Samsung catches up is that it is possible to charge both with your USB-C cable but also with the wireless charger.

Display and Design:

If the Galaxy S8 has been so successful, it's for a good reason: its screen. Screen technologies offered by Samsung have often been ranked among the best. There is nothing surprising in it. This smartphone has a Quad-HD + Super AMOLED resolution (2960 x 1440) screen of 5.8 inches. It is also certified "Mobile HDR Premium".

The colours are really bright without oversaturating the light tones and the black is very dark. We are talking about a range of colours DCI-P3 and a brightness of up to 1000 nits. Another highlight of this model is its almost perfect design.

As we told you, the curve of the smartphone is much better worked here. It is available in various colours just like Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Arctic Silver, Coral Blue, Maple Gold, Rose Pink, and Burgundy Red.

Price and Availability:

It’s been more than two years since then Samsung Galaxy S8 is shining on Australian stores, and Aussies from every corner of the country, i.e. Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne can get their hands on one with immediate effects.

As for Samsung Galaxy S8 Price Australia, it was eye-watering (AU$1150) at the time of launching. Since it has dropped significantly in price and one can now get S8 after spending AU$419-799 thanks to its successors Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S10.

Does it sound good to you? Of course, yes, especially if you are looking for the best smartphone on the market nowadays. Rear and front cameras, as well as a waterproofing feature both, are making it stand out from a crowd. It’s a too better-looking smartphone as compared to its competitors – for instance, Google Pixel 3 XL which even comes with a microSD card slot to expand its onboard memory for storing loads and loads of data.

The Galaxy S9 is also a better-looking phone as compared to LG G6 and Apple iPhone 7 in almost all respect. Itself, Galaxy S9 is too expensive for those who need a phone with flagship-level specifications without breaking their banks.

However, in Australia, so many deals offer that beast for less than AU$35/month with a considerable amount of internet included. It comes in so many colours to choose from such Arctic Silver, Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Coral Blue, Rose Pink, Maple Gold, and Burgundy Red.
