It’s Samsung Galaxy S8 day: Here’s why you should buy

They're here: the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are officially available, and while preorders have been arriving over this past week, now you can walk into a store and pick up the new flagship straight away.

Galaxy S8 update will hopefully fix red tinted displays

Galaxy S8 update will hopefully fix red tinted displays

The Galaxy S8 goes into wide release around the world today, and while many reviews have been very positive, there's still at least one early issue to look out for. Korea has had the phone since the beginning of the week, and some consumers in that region are reporting a reddish tint to their phone's display. At first, Samsung tried to fix the problem by telling users to adjust their display setting, but that recommendation doesn't seem to helping.

Galaxy S8 and S8+ start rolling out to the rest of the world

Galaxy S8 and S8+ start rolling out to the rest of the world

Korea and the US have had their head start. Now it's time for the rest of the world to get their hands, not to mention fingerprint smudges, on Samsung's newest darlings. The global availability of the Galaxy S8 and the slightly larger Galaxy S8+ has, unsurprisingly, started with the US, Canada, Korea, and, actually surprising, Puerto Rico. In the coming weeks, it will roll out to other markets, though some features might not exactly make it in time.

Samsung and Amazon are pushing a new HDR10+ standard

Samsung and Amazon are pushing a new HDR10+ standard

The video entertainment industry is undergoing a period of transition. Which is really just another way of saying it’s entering into a period of format wars not unlike the past DVD vs Blu-ray war. This time, it will be over HDR technology. While many equipment makers and content creators throw the word “HDR” around, it currently means a lot of things, from HDR10 to Dolby Vision to HLG. And to make things more interesting, which is to say, more confusing, Samsung and Amazon Video are teaming up to add another one to the alphabet mix: HDR10+.

The Galaxy S8 is surprisingly resilient to torture

The Galaxy S8 is surprisingly resilient to torture

This years flagships look mighty beautiful but also delicate. There is glass everywhere, both front and back. That is true for the LG G6, the HTC U Ultra, and, of course, the Samsung Galaxy S8. With the new style of smartphones comes a pressing question: how durable will these smartphones be? Will their classy look lead to more spider web fractures than we can care about? Will scratches abound as much as fingerprint smudges? Will they crack under the pressure of your posterior? Based on JerryRigEverything's test of the Galaxy S8, the answer to those is a reassuring "no".

This is how much Samsung’s Galaxy Books will cost

This is how much Samsung’s Galaxy Books will cost

While Microsoft may have a new Surface Pro 5 coming next month, leaks paint a rather disappointing picture of a slightly refreshed 2-in-1. That gives its partners and competitors plenty of opportunities to grab the market for themselves. That is, if the price is right. Judging by the price and availability details that Samsung just put out, its new Galaxy Book 2-in-1 Windows 10 tablets might indeed just offer the market a stop-gap solution until the next Microsoft Surface innovation. If and when that happens.

The Galaxy S8 gives one great Note 7 feature a second chance

The Galaxy S8 gives one great Note 7 feature a second chance

The Note 7 may be dead - or, at least, as good as dead - but its legacy carries on in some small but highly useful ways in the Galaxy S8. Samsung's new flagship smartphone for 2017 has been getting consistently positive reviews around the internet this week - from myself included - though early users still have a couple of criticisms. One of those sent me out looking for a feature I'd almost forgotten about on the last Note, what with the whole battery distraction.

Galaxy S8+ iFixit teardown could reignite battery fears

Galaxy S8+ iFixit teardown could reignite battery fears

Given the scathing experience Samsung suffered over the Galaxy Note 7's battery, you'd think they'd have learned their lesson by now. That might actually be true but, based on iFixit's surprising discovery, that might also not be the case completely. Doing a teardown of both the Gaalxy S8 and the larger Galaxy S8+, the team discovered that the Galaxy S8+ virtually has the same battery as the Galaxy Note 7. Although Samsung might be confident that it has sufficiently addressed the QA issues that led to the explosive batteries, consumers might not be completely convinced.

Some Galaxy S8 users complain of reddish screens

Some Galaxy S8 users complain of reddish screens

No smartphone is perfect, of course, but manufacturers are expected to at least avoid glaring bugs and issues, especially at launch. Considering how much Samsung is banking on the Galaxy S8's success, you'd expect it to be very careful not to mess things up so soon. As some early Korean users have discovered to their dismay, however, that just isn't the case. Some are reporting that their screens are exhibiting a very reddish tint that won't go away, no matter the settings.
