This is it. The reviews for the Galaxy S8 are all out and if there was one common denominator between all the reviews, it would be that Samsung makes the best smartphone hardware in the world. But since the S6, I’ve always felt that Samsung did hardware extremely well.
What they were rubbish at was their software, more specifically their Android skin. Gosh, I hate TouchWiz. But it seems like Samsung has been listening because when I spent my time with the Galaxy S8, I actually enjoyed the software experience.

The Galaxy S III comes with a host of new features such as Smart Stay, Pop-up Play and S Voice. In the previous Galaxy S II, we have seen gesture features including the ability to zoom in/out by moving the device closer or away from you with 2 thumbs on the screen.
For the Galaxy S III, XDA Developers had discovered a couple of interesting new gesture features as well. The first one is the ability to screen capture by swiping your hand from left to right on top of the display. Next is the ability to go back to the top of the page by simply double tapping at the top of the device which is perfect for apps with long list or scrolling like Twitter timeline. The last trick which they have demonstrated is pausing the video by covering the device with your palm.
Watch it in action in the video above from 5:30 minute onwards.
