Background and Identification ¶
With the S8 series, Samsung's line of Galaxy phones gets tantalizingly close to the vaunted "nothing but display" ideal. With a curved edge-to-edge display, minimal top and bottom bezels, and a relocated fingerprint sensor, Samsung's smartphones are visually stunning—but like their predecessors, troublesome to repair.
The S8 and S8+ appear almost identical apart from their dimensions and screen size—the smaller S8 features a 5.8" display, with the same 2960 x 1440 resolution as its larger 6.2" sibling.
The S8 comes in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Coral Blue, Arctic Silver, and Maple Gold.
