Samsung’s comeback flagship phone, the Galaxy S8, debuted a few weeks ago to universal acclaim. Reviews have praised its beautiful design, excellent hardware, stellar 12-megapixel camera, and lasting battery life as major selling points. While the Galaxy S8 does have a few major kinks to work out (its Bixby digital assistant is still notably underdeveloped), it still boasts a number of unique features that you won’t find on other smartphones currently on the market, including the iPhone. Of course, this list will likely change when Apple launches its tenth-anniversary iPhone later this year.
While Bixby is still a work in progress, it still brings a lot of value to the Galaxy S8, notably when paired with its camera. Bixby Vision is essentially an augmented reality camera that can identify real world objects and bring up relevant information about them. You can use it when shopping to find product comparisons, prices, and shopping links. When traveling, you can use it to find local attractions and restaurants.
