There's a lot to consider here: 2017 is shaping up to be one of the most interesting years for smartphones, judging by what's come out so far, as well as what we have only heard rumors about. It's been a rocky couple of months for the mobile arm of the South Korean electronics giant, and it remains to be seen whether the new Galaxy range can be a phoenix from the ashes. The most noticeable change from its predecessors is its revamped design, which is considerably taller, and relies heavily on Samsung's so-called "Infinity Display". Its 10nm mobile processor - the first in the world - ensures both smooth user experience and optimized power consumption.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition will be sold through Microsoft Stores in the United States, with Microsoft set to include additional productivity apps than those that came preinstalled on previous Samsung Galaxy smartphones, including Word, OneDrive and Skype.

Both devices feature numerous enhancements, including an improved camera, expandable storage options and increased battery capacity and water resistance.

The Galaxy S8 is the most important phone ever for Samsung. However, on paper, Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with better camera configurations. Instead, Samsung is embedding a virtual home button in the display and moving the fingerprint sensor to the back.

But the good part is that the new device's battery won't depreciate over time as quick as the S7.

Apart from this, the S8 gets USB Type-C charging as well as wireless charging - both of which are claimed by the company to be faster than the fast charging which was available on S7 devices.

Samsung has officially unveiled the latest addition to Galaxy premium range, the Galaxy S8 at its Unpacked 2017 event in NY. The Galaxy S8 will come with a set of pre-installed apps that will work with Bixby.

Apparently, iPhone 8's advanced camera system will have 3D capabilities that can enable augmented (AR), like the hologram effect in Pokemon Go, and virtual reality (VR) features in apps, while also offering better security. Considering that the Google Pixel would most likely be the first device to receive the highly-anticipated Android O update this year, the Pixel is a great alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S8, at least on the software front.

Needless to say, if you've the kind of dough that is needed to own a Galaxy S8, simply go for it based on the fresh and unique design it offers - the only thing that might bother you is the battery which will probably last lesser than it did on the S7. Samsung also unveiled a router that doubles as a hub for internet-connected appliances and lights. The standard-size S8 will cost about $750 and the larger S8 Plus about $850 - both about $100 more than comparable iPhones and rival Android phones.
