You may have noticed S9 looks pretty much the same as the S8. Even the dimensions are the same.
But how do the two stack up against each other? Where are the real differences?
Hi Gizmodo! I have a question for you, would love to get your expert advice. My Nexus 5x is still alive, but need to make an upgrade due to storage (16GB just doesn’t cut it these days…). Having been with a cheaper mid-range, I’m interested in what is the best out there at the moment?
I’m kind of leaning towards picking up a cheap Google Pixel seeing that prices are tumbling now the Pixel 2 is nearly here. What would you suggest?
A solid five months after Samsung announced it, the Bixby voice assistant is finally available in Australia.
Earmarked the Galaxy S8 as your new phone and want to do something more exciting to stand out than fiddling with the Bixby button? You could always crack out the industrial solvents and make the thing transparent, as demonstrated by this video from JerryRigEverything.
With the exploding Note7 battery fiasco, Samsung inadvertently did something that's increasingly difficult these days: It made smartphones interesting for a flickering moment. Super interesting, in fact. Besides the intrigue of the mournful saga of Note7, whose embarrassing recall cost the company billions, Samsung also set up a dramatic release narrative for the Galaxy S8. This wasn't just another smartphone -- this was a make-or-break device charged with saving a company in the throes of an existential crisis. A smartphone that screams at the void -- yikes!
The reviews are in and everyone seems to agree that the new Galaxy S8 is the world’s best phone ever. (Take that, Nokia!) With that decided, we now turn our attention to the question that our worried spouses and accountants are asking: What’s the best way to buy the S8? Outright or on a contract plan?
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the prettiest phones you can buy right now, but it's launching as a somewhat incomplete product. Bixby, the phone's new digital assistant, doesn't yet have one if its key features -- voice recognition. This shortcoming wouldn't be so obvious if only Samsung hadn't included a new button on the side of the phone meant to launch Bixby. Thanks to some creative geekery, however, the seemingly useless button now has a purpose.
With just two weeks until the new Samsung Galaxy S8 hits stores in Australia, it’s time to ask the tough questions. Is the edge-to-edge Infinity Display all it’s cracked up to be? What’s the deal with DeX, and does it work? But perhaps most importantly: is it cheaper to buy an S8 on a plan than an iPhone 7?
In the eternal war between Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay, the world's largest smartphone maker just scored another -- minor -- victory. Millions of customers from Australia's second largest bank can now use Samsung's phones and smartwatches instead of their credit and debit cards to pay at almost any NFC payment terminal around the country.
With the April 28 launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 creeping up on us, I've been trying to find a good case to protect my new phone -- even though I don't usually like covers. I think I've settled on my favourite: this leather-wrapped case from Mujjo.
We've already looked at the best Samsung Galaxy S8 plans from each Australian telco. Now, Woolies has pulled a rabbit out of its hat with a new plan boasting 12GB of data for $92 a month. If you need more than 10GB of data, this is the best deal we've seen from any telco so far. Read on for the details.
You're getting the new Galaxy S8, yeah? Or maybe a Galaxy S8+? Yeah, sweet. Me too. Don't be an idiot and smash it. Buy a case and a screen protector. One of these ones.
In case you missed it last week, Samsung officially took the wraps off its new Galaxy S8. It'll be out at the end of the month, giving you a solid four weeks to choose your allegiance: are you with House Telstra or House Vodafone? House Optus or House Virgin? Or will you pledge your credit card to one of the smaller upstarts?
