Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus : 7 Reasons why you should buy & 5 Reasons why you shouldn't.

Samsung has officially unboxed it's primed to be the flagship smartphone of the year, Galaxy S8. but there are already some turn-offs that we’ve seen from its launch. Should you buy it?

Here are 7 reasons why you should buy :

To buy: Infinity display
Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come with 5.8inch and 6.2inch Quad HD+ resolution Super AMOLED screens respectively. With the ‘Infinity Display’ technology, the company has made the display more immersive by thinning out the bezels and increasing the screen size. the S8 in the hand, feels as the curved edge stand out display.

To buy: Facial recognition & Iris Scanner
Facial recognition is a new technology that Samsung has incorporated in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. These add to the security of the smartphones, which also comes with a fingerprint sensor & a new, improved version of the iris scanner first ever in galaxy series.

To buy: Bixby
Bixby is Samsung's new digital assistant, which the company claims is better than competitors like Cortana, Siri and Google Assistant. Bixby supports contextual search and can find anything from images to the information on the smartphone(s). For now, Bixby only works with Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

To buy: Dex station
DeX station is a new docking accessory that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are compatible with. It allows Samsung’s new smartphones to power an Android-based desktop UI experience for enhanced on-the-go productivity. This is similar to Microsoft’s Continuum feature. DeX station has ports for connecting peripherals like mouse, keyboard and monitor.

To buy: Invisible home button
The 'invisible home button’, as Samsung calls it, is placed under the on-screen Home button and is pressure sensitive. It provides tactile vibration feedback as well. Due to this, the new smartphones not only get bigger displays, but also retain the feel of the physical Home button that previous Galaxy flagships have.

To buy: Mobile HDR certification
The Quad HD+ Super AMOLED screens of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are among the first to have been awarded mobile HDR certification by UHD alliance. This means that the displays are optimized for HDR content. Samsung is also working with Amazon to bring HDR content to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

To buy: Bluetooth 5.0
S8 & S8+ are the first smartphones to come with Bluetooth newer version 5.0 . not even iphone 7, 7+ had this feature.

Here are 5 reasons why you shouldn't buy :

Not to buy: Fingerprint scanner placement
Probably the most disappointing thing about the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ is the placement of the fingerprint sensor. It’s placed next to the rear camera module, and will definitely cause the camera to get smudged quite often due to accidental finger taps on the lenses. Although the smartphone(s) will remind you of wiping the camera module from time to time, it doesn’t change the fact that the fingerprint sensor is placed at the worst-possible location. This turned out to be the worst design aspect of the Galaxy S8.

Not to buy: RAM
Samsung has decided to stick with 4GB of RAM for both the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which is last year’s industry standard. Since these are the company’s flagships, we were expecting them to come with 6GB of RAM (at least in one of the variants). Future smartphones will come with as much as 8GB of RAM. Even Samsung’s own C9 Pro, which is a much lower-specs smartphone than the S8 duo, comes with 6GB of RAM. but the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip in S8 makes you wanna reconsider.

Not to buy: Battery
Battery capacity in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is the same as before models S8 with 3,000mah battery, the S8+ has 3,500mAh battery. Although it’s too early to comment about battery life, we think Samsung should have gone with bigger batteries. What’s interesting is that two of the company’s non-flagship smartphones, Galaxy C9 Pro and Galaxy A9 Pro, comes with 4,000mAh and 5,000mAh batteries respectively.

Not to buy: Camera

Just like the batteries, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ carry forward the same front and rear cameras as their predecessors. The rear camera is a 12MP unit, while there’s an 8MP front facing shooter. Although there’s a slight change in the apertures and that could help in getting slightly better images, rest of the camera specifics remain the same. no dual camera in at least the bigger version S8 plus, is disappointing as it is must in a flagship with that price tag. (S8-$720, S8 Plus-$840)

Not to buy: Gigabit LTE not in India
Samsung claims its new Galaxy S8 duo is among the first to support Gigabit LTE connectivity. But as exciting as it sounds, this feature is useless in India. so if you're an indian, consider this reason not to buy..

So guys do you agree with me ?.. what are your thoughts on these S8,S8+ which hit the markets on April 21st. share them in the comments below.. be sure to like & subscribe . stay tuned.

10 Best new Features of Apple iOS 10.3 // Update your iPhone to newer version !!!


Apple has finally released iOS 10.3 to the public. The new mobile software is available as an over the air (OTA) download or as a download through iTunes on a Mac or Windows PC, and it’s compatible with 19 different Apple devices dating as far back as the iPhone 5, 4th-generation iPad, iPad mini 2, and the 6th-generation iPod touch.

1. Find My AirPods


The AirPods are truly wireless, meaning there are no wires to get tangled up in, but also no wires to keep these earbuds from getting lost. Thankfully, Apple addressed this situation by integrating a Find My AirPods feature into the Find My iPhone app.
After pairing your AirPods, the Find My iPhone app will automatically keep track of your precious earbuds.

2. New Podcast widget

In the iOS 10.3 update, you will be able to add a Podcast widget to Control Center, allowing you to quickly continue to listen to your favorite podcast or launch the next one on your list. This widget looks very similar to the Music widget, but instead of your recently played albums, you will get to see the cover art of the podcasts you’re subscribed up.
To add the Podcast widget, swipe right from the Home screen, swipe all the way down past all your existing widgets, and tap “Edit.” On that screen, find the Podcast widget and tap the green “+” sign. This screen also lets you rearrange the layout of your widgets.

3. Apple ID profile


After you install iOS 10.3, the first thing you will see in Settings is a new section with your name and photo. This new section houses all your most vital information that’s linked to your iOS device, including your Apple ID, your iCloud and iTunes info, and your App Store settings.
In this section, you can update your payment information, check your iCloud storage, set up Family Sharing, and see a list of all the Apple devices that are registered to your Apple ID—including Macs, iPads, Apple TVs, and Apple Watches.

4. Faster-changing app icons


Before iOS 10.3, developers had to push out a new version of their app if they wanted to introduce a new app icon. But in iOS 10.3, app icons can be changed more frequently, at the developer's’ discretion. Apple has adjusted the app animations when you open and close apps. 

5. Hourly Weather forecast in Maps


You’re now able to get more details about upcoming weather in the Maps app. Simply use Touch ID on the weather icon to the right of the screen to see what the weather is going to be like in that particular location in the next six-hour period. 

6. CarPlay Updates

This update also gives CarPlay improved app-switching capabilities. Now you can quickly switch between your media, messaging, and travel apps without having to go to the Home screen first. 
In addition, the Music app has added an Up Next screen so you can see all the music that’s in your queue. Plus, you can access album view from the song screen.

7. iCloud calling now on Verizon

Verizon customers can now use any iCloud-connected device to answer Wi-Fi calls. This means that you can answer a call on your Mac, your iPad, or Apple Watch even if your iPhone is not nearby. This feature was already available for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint customers.
To set this up, you will first need to enable Wi-Fi calling by going to Settings > Phone. Then, on that same screen, tap on “Calls on Other Devices” and toggle it on. This will surface a list of all your iCloud-connected devices, where you can toggle on which ones you would like to be able to answer calls.

8. Apple File System


One of the most significant changes in iOS 10.3 is also perhaps one of the least noticeable. Apple has made a switch in the iOS file system, going from outdated HFS+ system to the new Apple File System (APFS). Using APFS may result in free storage space on your device.

9. iCloud Storage at a Glance


While you're in that Apple ID Profile, tap on iCloud. The top of the subsequent screen will include a new storage section with a visual breakdown of how much cloud storage you're using along with how much is taken up by photos, backups, docs and email. Tap further, and you can manage your storage, either deleting items you no longer want to store in iCloud or paying for more storage space.

10. In-app Review



iOS 10.3 also gives developers the option to ask users to write a review without leaving the app. This way, users will be encouraged to leave more reviews and ratings without having to switch to the App Store.
In addition, app developers will also be able to respond to these reviews and everyone will be able to read the response, making the app review process more of a forum.

That’s not all! 
iOS 10.3 also brings welcomed changes to Siri, Safari, and HomeKit capabilities
Here are other subtle but noteworthy features to check out :-

Siri learns cricket. Ask Siri to tell you the scores from the Indian Premier League and International Cricket Council


Reduced Motion in Safari. If you’re sensitive to visual effects on your iOS device, they will no longer be a problem when surfing Safari.

Home app light controls. Turn on pre-programmed scenes for your Homekit-enabled devices using the Home app.
