Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus : 7 Reasons why you should buy & 5 Reasons why you shouldn't.

Samsung has officially unboxed it's primed to be the flagship smartphone of the year, Galaxy S8. but there are already some turn-offs that we’ve seen from its launch. Should you buy it?

Here are 7 reasons why you should buy :

To buy: Infinity display
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come with 5.8inch and 6.2inch Quad HD+ resolution Super AMOLED screens respectively. With the ‘Infinity Display’ technology, the company has made the display more immersive by thinning out the bezels and increasing the screen size. the S8 in the hand, feels as the curved edge stand out display.

To buy: Facial recognition & Iris Scanner
Facial recognition is a new technology that Samsung has incorporated in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. These add to the security of the smartphones, which also comes with a fingerprint sensor & a new, improved version of the iris scanner first ever in galaxy series.

To buy: Bixby
Bixby is Samsung's new digital assistant, which the company claims is better than competitors like Cortana, Siri and Google Assistant. Bixby supports contextual search and can find anything from images to the information on the smartphone(s). For now, Bixby only works with Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

To buy: Dex station
DeX station is a new docking accessory that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are compatible with. It allows Samsung’s new smartphones to power an Android-based desktop UI experience for enhanced on-the-go productivity. This is similar to Microsoft’s Continuum feature. DeX station has ports for connecting peripherals like mouse, keyboard and monitor.

To buy: Invisible home button
The 'invisible home button’, as Samsung calls it, is placed under the on-screen Home button and is pressure sensitive. It provides tactile vibration feedback as well. Due to this, the new smartphones not only get bigger displays, but also retain the feel of the physical Home button that previous Galaxy flagships have.

To buy: Mobile HDR certification
The Quad HD+ Super AMOLED screens of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are among the first to have been awarded mobile HDR certification by UHD alliance. This means that the displays are optimized for HDR content. Samsung is also working with Amazon to bring HDR content to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

To buy: Bluetooth 5.0
S8 & S8+ are the first smartphones to come with Bluetooth newer version 5.0 . not even iphone 7, 7+ had this feature.

Here are 5 reasons why you shouldn't buy :

Not to buy: Fingerprint scanner placement
Probably the most disappointing thing about the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ is the placement of the fingerprint sensor. It’s placed next to the rear camera module, and will definitely cause the camera to get smudged quite often due to accidental finger taps on the lenses. Although the smartphone(s) will remind you of wiping the camera module from time to time, it doesn’t change the fact that the fingerprint sensor is placed at the worst-possible location. This turned out to be the worst design aspect of the Galaxy S8.

Not to buy: RAM
Samsung has decided to stick with 4GB of RAM for both the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which is last year’s industry standard. Since these are the company’s flagships, we were expecting them to come with 6GB of RAM (at least in one of the variants). Future smartphones will come with as much as 8GB of RAM. Even Samsung’s own C9 Pro, which is a much lower-specs smartphone than the S8 duo, comes with 6GB of RAM. but the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip in S8 makes you wanna reconsider.

Not to buy: Battery
Battery capacity in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is the same as before models S8 with 3,000mah battery, the S8+ has 3,500mAh battery. Although it’s too early to comment about battery life, we think Samsung should have gone with bigger batteries. What’s interesting is that two of the company’s non-flagship smartphones, Galaxy C9 Pro and Galaxy A9 Pro, comes with 4,000mAh and 5,000mAh batteries respectively.

Not to buy: Camera

Just like the batteries, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ carry forward the same front and rear cameras as their predecessors. The rear camera is a 12MP unit, while there’s an 8MP front facing shooter. Although there’s a slight change in the apertures and that could help in getting slightly better images, rest of the camera specifics remain the same. no dual camera in at least the bigger version S8 plus, is disappointing as it is must in a flagship with that price tag. (S8-$720, S8 Plus-$840)

Not to buy: Gigabit LTE not in India
Samsung claims its new Galaxy S8 duo is among the first to support Gigabit LTE connectivity. But as exciting as it sounds, this feature is useless in India. so if you're an indian, consider this reason not to buy..
