Toby Shapshak, the editor of Stuff Magazine, spoke with The Midday Report's Stephen Grootes about the newly launched Samsung Galaxy 8 and Samsung 8+.
Shapshak says the device is a big departure from what we've seen before from smart phones. He says the Samsung 8 has a massive screen, sized at 5.8 inches, while the S8+ has a 6.2 inch display.
Samsung are very good and they've always been very good at making screens.— Toby Shapshak, editor at Stuff Magazine
So despite having a bigger screen, it's actually the same size as an iPhone 7.— Toby Shapshak, editor at Stuff Magazine
Shapshak says the camera and 'selfie' camera are impressive.
Another addition to the new device is a built-in digital assistant, called Bixby which the equivalent of what Siri is to iPhone users.
