Top 3 Smartphones to buy in 2017


Global sales of the Galaxy S8 smartphones reached 5 million units in less than a month after their official release, Samsung Electronics Co. said Tuesday, casting a brighter outlook over its mobile business for 2017.

Aside from their wireless charging capabilities and their beefy batteries, these Juice Packs also feature front-facing speaker openings and LED indicators to let you know how much power you've got left.

Samsung Pay is now available on the S8, S8+, S7, S7 Edge, S6 and S6 Edge and the smartphone maker says the feature will be rolled out to additional devices "in the coming months".

The report also mentions about 300,000 units of the FE will be produced, with Samsung being confident there will be a strong demand for the device. This ensures that Samsung Pay users will be able to pay with their phones at any merchant.

The new Samsung Pay system will allow people who own a Samsung S8 and S+ to authorise payments using their iris scanner. More banks like HSBC, First Direct, M&S and American Express would be joining the list soon. The chipset will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, which can be expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.

Samsung Pay first arrived back in August 2015 when it launched in Korea.

Card details are not stores on devices but on digital tokens, developed by Mastercard.

The Galaxy Note 8 will differentiate itself in other ways though, starting with the stylus the line is so well known for. In case, you can't notice the update, fret not. The method works by "simply by tapping a phone against the card reader, eliminating the need to wake your phone or verify with a fingerprint or PIN".

Samsung will add a 3000mAh battery on the phone, and it will boot Android 7.0 Nougat right out-of-the-box. However, their Google Play listing for the application has been localized for the UK.
