Do you remember the first Samsung mobile phones?

It was more like carrying around a walkie-talkie!

When Samsung’s first mobile phone appeared on the market in 1988, it was BIG, it was BULKY and it certainly couldn’t fit into your handbag!

Today, Samsung Mobile is a front-runner in the worldwide cell phone industry and its latest Galaxy S8 model, released in April 2017, lays proof to that claim.

What you get from Samsung

Many industry leaders believe that the launch of the Galaxy Note 8 will be a make-or-break moment for Samsung.

CEO of Samsung Mobile, DJ Koh, proudly displays the much-hyped Galaxy S8.

The launch follows the Galaxy Note 7 demise last year that not only dented Samsung’s reputation but also wiped out almost $17 billion of the company’s value.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 is not only lovely to look at but is comfortable to hold or slip into your pocket.

It has an innovative curved screen that seems to encompass the entire front view of the phone.

Called an “Infinity Display”, the phone is slim and light and looks to be 2017’s top choice for discerning buyers.

Countries

Samsung is available in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East including Iran, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, as well as most of Africa.

Mobile, Android, iPhone and smartphone

Security and privacy issues

Samsung recently announced regular monthly security updates for all mobile devices, including the Galaxy range.

Cool stuff to do

With the Galaxy S8, you can secure your phone with facial recognition, iris scanning and fingerprints!

Now, how cool is that?

To register these settings, go to:

  • Settings.
  • Now Lockscreen and Security drop-down tabs will appear, each with its own sub-menu to register your face, fingerprint or iris.
  • Create a PIN, password and pattern.

By registering your fingerprint, password and either facial recognition or iris (only one of these can be used at a time), you will have three different ways to secure your phone.

Also, browse the web using Google.
