Samsung's Galaxy S8 is very important because, as you probably know, Samsung is in a bit of trouble. The Note7 explosions from last winter continue to haunt the company, and Samsung's leadership is currently embroiled in a scandal that is, to put it gently, totally bananas. The company needs a big win lest it be consigned to the punchline of late night talkshow hosts. So let's stop talking about how bad the last six months have been for Samsung, and let's start talking about Samsung's new phone, which is available for pre-order today, and goes on sale April 28. It will retail for $1199, while the larger S8 Plus will retail for $1349.
