Probably one of the biggest gripes when it comes to the latest Galaxy S8 and Note8 series is its fingerprint sensor. Because of its 18.5:9 Infinity Display, Samsung had to remove its physical home button and the fingerprint sensor is now moved to the back of the device.
It wasn’t meant to be this way and Samsung had originally planned to integrate its fingerprint sensor underneath the screen. Unfortunately, Samsung had to scrap this implementation purportedly due to the unbalanced lighting of the screen where the embedded fingerprint sensor is located.
According to a note that’s reportedly sent by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Samsung will overcome this technical challenge in 2018 but it won’t appear on their next flagship.
If there’s one thing people like more than getting new smartphones/gadgets/toys, it’s finding out that their smartphone/gadget/toy is better than everyone else’s. It’s human nature, or maybe just our egos, but the desire to turn everything into a stick measuring contest has been in our blood for generations.
Well, if one of the sticks you want to measure is your flagship smartphone’s camera performance, this article is for you. You seemed to love our last camera comparison, so we’re doing it again, only this time there’s a twist.

Love it or hate it, Samsung’s Bixby assistant is still here to stay. The extra button found on the Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note8 makes it easier to trigger Bixby but there are those who find it annoying as it is often mistaken for the volume down button.
For those who don’t want to use this feature, Samsung has finally released an official solution. You can finally disable the one press Bixby key after receiving a software update.
Houston, we have a new voice assistant in town. Following Samsung’s announcement that Bixby Voice would be rolling out in over 200 countries globally, our Samsung Galaxy S8 received an update that surprise, surprise, gives us access to Bixby Voice.

It was reported earlier that Google is paying Apple US$3 billion to remain as the default search engine on iOS. Now the search giant is also renewing a similar licensing deal with Samsung which would secure them significant search traffic on the world’s number 1 smartphone brand.
This post is brought to you by PETRONAS
PETRONAS is the first oil and gas company in Malaysia to support Samsung Pay at more than 1,000 stations nationwide. It offers greater cashless convenience as you can shop and pay for fuel with only your smartphone.
To celebrate the occasion, PETRONAS is giving away several prizes including a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8 (worth RM3,299) every week until 3 September 2017. It’s super easy to be in the running.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is still one of our favourite flagship smartphones you can get right now. When it was first launched in Malaysia, the smaller 5.8″ Galaxy S8 was retailing at RM3,299 while its bigger 6.2″ Galaxy S8+ was going for RM3,699.
With Samsung’s next big thing launching very soon, you can now buy a Galaxy S8 and S8+ at about RM700 off its retail price.
The Galaxy S8/S8+ is a beautiful looking thing but the all-glass exterior makes it a fragile device to use without a case. For those who want the performance of the Galaxy S8 with added durability to withstand the elements, there’s a new variant that will be announced very soon.
Bixby was one of the most polarising features to make an appearance on Samsung‘s flagship Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones. Some loved it, some hated it, and some just didn’t see the purpose in having yet another voice assistant. Many, in fact, tried their best to remap the dedicated Bixby button on the side of their smartphone — something Samsung has been actively blocking.
Well, like it or not, Samsung is committed to their new assistant and have begun rolling out Bixby’s voice capabilities for US English.
