Yeap, Samsung Malaysia has a pretty killer deal for their flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. And the best part is they’re also slashing the prices for some of their more affordable devices too.

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.

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.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is really pretty but it’s also an incredibly fragile phone. I mean, when something is pretty much all glass, it’s kind of hard to not be fragile. That’s why Samsung usually releases a more rugged and durable “Active” version of their flagship smartphone for their more exuberant clientele.
This year, it’s probably going to be the Galaxy S8 Active and this is our first look at what the phone will look like.
Today is the day that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ — which is our current favourite flagship smartphone — officially goes on sale in Malaysia. For those who missed out on the pre-order and are curious about what pre-order customers get, we’ve got you covered.
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 big news this week is Samsung’s massive launch of their brand new flagship smartphone — the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Both these phones have amazing specs and groundbreaking design, but one thing which seems to have remained the same is its camera.
So, does that mean this new S8 doesn’t have a camera capable of mixing it with the big boys of 2017? Well, I’ll leave that to you to decide.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a milestone for smartphones. It has an unbelievable screen, incredible specs and a body to die for. But those are just the headlining features. If you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that this phone has yet another first.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 isn’t even launching until the end of March, but thanks to leakster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), we have a list of what looks like the official specs for Samsung’s latest flagship — the S8+. Here are the details.
