How tough is Samsung Galaxy S9+

Smartphones
The release of Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ created a real buzz on the Internet. To tell you the truth, this is probably the first time when I want to get a Samsung phone so badly. But leaving all hardware specs aside, how tough is the Galaxy S9+ in terms of physical endurance? The TechRax vlogger subjected a Galaxy S9+ to an extreme resistance test. In the following video we can see how a Galaxy S9+ behaves when it is hit with a dagger, then with a hammer. Even though the screen resists pretty well when it is hit with the tip of a knife, the paint on the edge goes off very fast. The back resists pretty well when the dagger strikes, but it cracks completely when…

Samsung Galaxy X: Foldable Smartphone Concept

Smartphones
Apparently, this year at MWC 2017, Samsung has introduced a new concept to their close partners. This is nothing ordinary, since we are talking about a concept that could revolutionize the market and mark the future of smartphones.

iPhone 8 – the smartphone will feature an OLED display

iPhone 8 – the smartphone will feature an OLED display

Apple
Although Apple is still popular and it gets a huge success with each iPhone, users are always complaining about one thing: the battery life. This feature is expected to change for the better with iPhone 8, the first iPhone that will come with OLED display and a larger battery. Although iPhone 8 should have similar dimensions to the iPhone 7, it should feature a battery with larger capacity. In other words, we will see an improvement from 1,960 mAh to 2,700 mAh, which would lead to better battery life. This means that the battery's size will increase with 38%. That percentage does not necessarily reflects the same percentage increase in terms of lifespan, mainly because OLED displays are more battery resource demanding than LCDs. Despite the fact that Apple and…

Is this the Samsung Galaxy S8? New video released by Samsung Display

Smartphones
Samsung Display has just published several videos on their YouTube channel that made fans dream. The vidoclips depict the new AMOLED displays with very thin margins and a high screen-to-body ratio. But what's interesting is the overall design of the smartphone. It looks a lot like the Galaxy S8 renderings that we've saw recently. The smartphone has a design that's new and innovative, different from anything that we've seen so far. It has a headphone jack, speaker and USB-C connector. But the smartphone is very thin, much thinner than the current Samsung models. Seeing these videos, I also acknowledge that the future Galaxy smartphone might be different from the one presented here. But it is equally possible that these clips reveal future Galaxy S8 flagship design. We'll have to wait…

Galaxy S8 will be launched in the coming months and I am eager to see the device that should wash Samsung's shame regarding its Note 7 fail!

The source of the image was not yet revealed so it is impossible to know for sure if the image is the real deal. Even so, it confirms many rumors that recently emerged about the Samsung smartphone. First, Samsung will launch two versions of the phone and both will have curved lateral displays. The edges will be much smaller in size and the phone will come with no button on the front!
