“I love the edge-to-edge Infinity Screen because it enhances my video-watching experience. This is probably the best Samsung phone I’ve used. The speed is amazing and the aesthetic impressive. It complements my lifestyle seamlessly. It’s as good as bringing a concierge or PA on the go for me, especially with Samsung Pay and Bixby.” – Mediacorp personality Desmond Tan

“I am not tech savvy and I find it easy to use as I can access the functions and applications easily. If I could describe the Samsung S8 and S8+ in five words, it would be sleek, stylish, functional, efficient and durable.” – Mediacorp personality Paige Chua

As far as smartphones go, the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ are top-of-the-range beauties, scoring well among reviewers and the tech fraternity — from the size of the display screen to ease of use and enhanced security measures.

Infinity Display and Stunning Bezel-less Design

Boasting a stunning Infinity Display and ultra-thin bezel-less design, the Galaxy S8/S8+ are curved, symmetrical and virtually all screen, giving users a more immersive viewing experience. Landscape mode provides an almost cinematic experience that’s absolutely spectacular. Enjoy an even more intuitive user-experience with the One-Handed Mode, featuring an adjustable screen size that lets you access all corners of the screen with just your thumb. With the Infinity Display, users can also see more and scroll less in portrait mode. Multitasking is a breeze with the Advanced Multi-Window, allowing you to text pals even while watching a movie.

Water & Dust Resistance

Accidentally spill water on your smartphone? Don’t worry, the IP68-rated water and dust-resistance** has you covered. Mediacorp personality Paige Chua shares, “I lost two phones to water spillage in my bag, so it’s good to know the Galaxy S8/S8+ are water-resistant for up to 30 minutes in 1.5m-deep waters.”

*Do not use with infants, please consult a doctor before use if you have epileptic of other medical conditions. Iris Scanner may be unable to read your iris where view of your iris is impaired or the appearance of your iris changes, including where you are wearing certain types of glasses or coloured contact lenses.
