The Gearburn Podcast #10: Does the Galaxy S8 our appetites?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is the smartphone world’s latest talking point, and it’s now available for pre-order in South Africa. But is the phone worth the immense sum Samsung is asking?

Despite the extensive spec list (from the impressive screen to the iris scanner to the updated selfie camera), the Gearburn team struggle to get too gushy about Samsung’s newest device in today’s podcast.

Bixby’s possible integration with Google Now is unclear, the home ‘button’ is uncomfortable — and just one exploding battery could spell disaster for the brand.

Fresh from the South African Samsung Galaxy S8 launch, Hadlee Simons and Andy Walker talk through everything they learned about Samsung’s newest flagship. The good, the bad, the mediocre: has Samsung recovered their good name?
