Bixby is Samsung’s very own virtual assistant which was introduced together with the Galaxy S8/S8+ and it’s also available on the Galaxy Note8. Not only you can command your phone using your voice, you can use it to set customised actions such as running multiple apps or tasks at a single command.
It also gets smarter the more you use it. If it doesn’t get it right the first time, you can teach it so that it will know how to respond the next time you issue the same command.
To encourage more people to use Bixby, Samsung is running a Bixby Level Up campaign where you can get rewarded with Samsung Reward points.
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.
LG has finally taken the covers off its latest big screen flagship at IFA 2017. Dropping its secondary screen that came with the V10 and V20, the new LG V30 now features an all-screen OLED FullVision display. It somewhat resembles closely with this year’s Samsung Galaxy flagships and it’s definitely better looking than the LG G6.
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.

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.
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.

There’s now a new colour for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ with the introduction of its Rose Pink edition. This is the 6th colour for the flagship smartphone which joins its current options of Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Arctic Silver, Coral Blue and Maple Gold.
If you’re thinking of getting one from a telco, this is probably the least appealing of them all.
