The Galaxy S8 was released last year in April 2017. On its release, the phone was priced at Rs 81,999.

Generally the phone got an outstanding positive response from the market. However it has a few cons. Firstly the edged display, while sleek and stylish, does not provide much value. It has caused the phone to fall from customer’s hands due to its glossy design. Customers have also complained about the price being too high but the price has since fallen down and currently it is very reasonable.

There are no revolutionary changes when compared to the S8 but it definitely provides an essential upgrade. The premium build and design is an attractive component that, coupled with its state of the art specifications and functions, makes Samsung Galaxy S8 an outstanding phone for technology lovers.
