IFixit Galaxy S8 Teardown Gives It A 4/10 For Repairability

Posted May 03, 2017

With screens of 5.8 inch and 6.2 inches, Samsung S8 and S8 Plus is the flagship phone of Samsung and a successor to the S7.

Given that a score of 10 means the device is easiest to fix, this definitely shows that Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are not your type if you are a DIY kinda person. The unusual shape of the Galaxy S8's display is due to its ultra-wide display, which has an aspect ratio of 18:5:9 instead of 16:9. The smartphones also support fast charging technology and wireless fast charging facility as well. According to experts, Samsung specifically developed deep red display panels for the Galaxy S8 to avoid the potential color balance problem of too much green. But Samsung ditched those plans because it had to reposition the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone.

The Galaxy S8 India variant will be powered by the Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC variants will only be available in select regions including the US.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ended up as a disaster for the company, but it seems the company is still confident to launch the successor of the phablet to cover up for the mess created previous year. The company started a Galaxy S8 pre-registration page on April 5th where interested people were allowed to sign up to receive notifications regarding the smartphone.

The news of the Galaxy Note 8's dual-camera design comes following leaked images of what was purported to be a Galaxy S8+ prototype with a dual-camera design. Both the phones come with 4GB RAM and run Android 7.0 Nougat with Samsung's improved TouchWiz UI.

The two Samsung smartphones are the first flagships since the fateful Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and will determine how the public perceives the brand after the debacle.

The Galaxy S8 also debuts Bixby, the company's latest smart AI assistant.
