Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus vs. S7 and S7 Edge – is it worth the upgrade?

Looking back at 2016, the S7 Edge was hands down one of the best smartphones, with one of the best designs, which it still is to this date. Things have greatly changed with the launch of the S8 and S8 Plus now. With the introduction of the two new devices, Samsung officially came back swinging after their Note 7 demise, with what might be the best design for 2017. So is this new phone good enough to have users upgrade from 2016’s S7 or S7Edge? Here, I will list some features that give the “edge” to the new devices, as well as other features and specifications that might keep away from ever considering upgrading to the new flagship.

S8 Pre-Order Deals In Lebanon – a letdown?

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus pre-order deals in Lebanon have started and unfortunately, it is a letdown. Comparing this to the pre-order deals that started in the US right after the “Unbox your phone” event in New York, it does seem like a real letdown. The pre-order deal in Lebanon includes a 1-year subscription to beIN sports, 3 months subscription to Shahid Plus, and a 10 GB data bundle for 2 months (Touch and Alpha). The pre-order deal would cost you $799 for the S8 and $899 for the S8 Plus. It is worth mentioning that this pre-order deal is also offered by Samsung Levant.

Samsung has been preparing to bring their A-game for their unpacked event next Sunday. At MWC, the company showed a teaser video for the Galaxy S8 phone, which and according to SamMobile, was the most viewed corporate brand video for the week between March 6 and March 12.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+have been leaking left and right for some time now, from the specs to colors, and some important features. Tech journalist Evan Blass has been at the head of these leaks, where he started off by leaking the Galaxy Tab S3 and went on to leak a lot of information about the S8 and S8+. This is almost everything that has been leaked about the two phones that are set to be unveiled on the 29th of this month.

Bixby has been officially announced!

Today Samsung officially announced their new intelligence interface, Bixby, that will be on all new Samsung devices. The rumors about the launch of Bixby in the upcoming Galaxy S8 surfaced back when Samsung filed for the “Bixby” trademark at the beginning of this year.

In a press release, the company announced this new AI in the S8, as well as provide a bit of description on what this digital assistant can do (press release).  Bixby’s main competitor won’t be Siri or Cortana, but rather Google’s own Google Assistant that has been now made available to most Android devices.

Will Samsung’s Bixby be any different from its failed S Voice? In theory, Bixby is indeed very different, offering more and doing more. But this all can’t be confirmed until the Galaxy S8 is released.
