IFixit Galaxy S8 Teardown Gives It A 4/10 For Repairability

IFixit Galaxy S8 Teardown Gives It A 4/10 For Repairability

According to a research note by famed analyst Ming Chi Kuo and obtained by AppleInsider, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 13MP telephoto one on the back. Samsung Pay is also supported out-of-the-box. However, both these chipset have shown similar results on benchmark testing. Samsung isn't launching a new Edge phone this year, because probably, both its new Galaxy S phones have just the right amount of curves and Edge-functionality built right into them. "The Galaxy S8 has a 5.8" sAMOLED display on the front and the larger variant the Galaxy S8+ has a 6.2" sAMOLED display. It will be interesting to see if Samsung's positioning of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ models works, given that it has to cover up for the losses from Note 7 fiasco. However they note that things like tough adhesive especially in the battery area and a glued on rear panel makes it quite hard to replace certain parts of the phone.

Samsung made a bold move by not introducing a flat screen alternative for the device.
