Berne says that allowing users to remap the button isn't out of the question for good, but Samsung will not officially support it. The Galaxy S8 is in fact the first smartphone to cross 1 million pre-orders.

Such headlines are unsurprisingly typically followed by glowing commentary about the 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch displays respectively found on the S8 and S8 Plus. Samsung also wants to regain the customer satisfaction and confidence that was shattered due to total failure of Galaxy Note 7.

The devices are powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor in the U.S and Samsung's own 3GHz Exynos 8895 processor in other regions including India alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD card (up to 256GB).

All is not lost for Samsung as Apple and Google couldn't make a heavy dent in the premium smartphones segment with iPhone 7 Pixel devices.

Typing a message with one hand on larger phones can be hard, but my colleague Avery Hartmans found it was much easier to do one-handed typing on the Galaxy S8+ than it was on the iPhone 7 Plus. The S8 apparently has the highest-rated display of all smartphones, as shown in this independent testing. It offers three forms: fingerprint, iris scan, and facial recognition.

Samsung Dex is one of the best features that let you connect the external display. That is not going to be a problem with the S8, which is considered to be one of the most powerful phones of today.

Last but not the least, the headphone jack!

Those prototypes featured a different design with a dual rear camera setup, as was rumored at one point for the Galaxy S8.

Another very important reason for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ being good than iPhone 7 Plus is the fast and wireless battery charging. They still may have a trick or two up their sleeve.

Coincidentally, everything has happened after installing the OTA update with reference NRD90M.G950WVLU1AQD9, so it has been concluded that Samsung has blocked this possibility with this new firmware.
