Samsung Galaxy S8 is simply gorgeous. The S7’s flat screen has gone, and in its place is a tall narrow design with two curved sides. Better than the LG G6, which has similar proportions but no curved screen and sleeker than the iPhone 7 Plus, which puts a smaller screen on taller, wider body.

For the first time, every major Samsung phone is an “Edge” model, with the Edge
and Note’s curved-screen software and all.


Samsung’s redesign makes the S8’s 5.8-inch screen absolutely pop.There’s no more physical home button, and barely a bezel.That means the screen takes up roughly 83 percent of the phone’s face for tapping and viewing. If the S7’s display felt generous before, this is positively expansive.

The deal with Bixby
Bixby is a little tougher to explain. It’s a three-parter that combines elements of voice commands with Google Now-style cards and image recognition. And Samsung has named each part.
Bixby Voice is the Siri/Google Voice Search/Amazon Alexa component that you speak commands to. But it’ll be limited at launch. You can ask it to toggle your Wi-Fi settings, share a photo with someone and perform other phone-centric tasks, but you can’t launch an internet search, like looking up the weather or asking when your favorite restaurant’s going to close.

You start it by pressing and holding the Bixby button beneath the volume keys (like a walkie-talkie), or with a wake word — Samsung will provide more details closer to the S8’s sale date.
