Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 launched this week and so far the buzz around it seems to be pretty positive. Anytime a new Galaxy smartphone launches it generates pretty good interest. In comparison to the previous model (S7), there are few new cool features and a couple tweaks to the design which have people interested in upgrading. Don't believe me? Check out CNBC's coverage of the S8 launch and why they think it's a pretty good device.

Now, after a week testing Samsung's new device, I think I might actually buy it. It's the most exciting device to launch so far this year, is supposed to be much safer (though only time will tell if the battery will hold up this time) and is future-proofed to support faster Gigabit LTE networks as carriers begin rolling them out this year.
