Wiki Info: Unlike past Galaxy S series models, the S8 does not feature physical navigation keys, electing to use on-screen keys instead. However, unlike other implementations, the home button can still be activated if it is hidden or the screen is off. The S8’s display features pressure sensitivity limited to the home button. To prevent the home button from burn-in damage, its position moves slightly. While The Verge claims that the S8 uses exactly the same 12-megapixel rear camera as the S7, though with software improvements, a report from PhoneArena claims that the phones carry new, custom camera modules. The front-facing camera was upgraded to an 8-megapixel sensor with autofocus. The S8 features fingerprint and iris scanners; the fingerprint reader was located to the rear of the device, next to the camera, due to the removal of the physical home button. In addition to an iris scanner, the S8 also features face-scanning as an option to unlock the phone. Face recognition technology had previously been implemented in earlier models like the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S4.

Final Verdict: What many Google Daydream fans hate about the Samsung Galaxy S8 is that it makes anything Google has made look so bad! With its infinity screen and super high resolution, its a smartphone that has once again set the quality bar so high other mobile makers are struggling to reach it. But what all those features do for Google Daydream users is make every Daydream app or game look amazing. While things might change in the future, currently this phone can currently handle just about anything you can throw at it, even the most graphically heavy of games. I will say that the volume buttons to get touched when you insert it (button downwards) into the Google Daydream View headset. But other than that little issue, it’s pretty much perfect for Google Daydream use.
