The Samsung Galaxy S8 – What’s it going to be like for gamers

Well, Samsung went right ahead and announced the Galaxy S8 last night. It’s the newest in the South Korean firm’s range of smartphones, and it’s got a few new features that gamers are definitely going to be interested in. And a few potential problems too.

Now I know we usually just cover iOS on AppSpy, but I thought that this well well worth a look all the same. After all, as the saying goes, know your enemy. Therefore I have created some list-based content for your eyes.

We’re also going to have a ponder about whether the phone might replace your trusty iPhone as your go-to gaming device. So, without further me typing out an intro, here’s everything that gamers need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The Screen

This is the biggest change in the new S8. After last generation’s experiment with extra screen space with the S7 Edge, Samsung has gone one step further. Now the screen wraps around both sides of the device, giving you a lot of shiny pixel real-estate.

It’s also got a new aspect ratio too. Rather than 16:9, the phone stretches out to 18.5:9. It’s HDR enabled as well, although apparently that’s something you need to enable yourself. It’ll ship at just regular HD resolution.

There are two versions of the phone, as is common nowadays, the S8 and the S8 Plus. The S8 has a 5.8 inch screen, while the Plus has a slightly bigger 6.2 inch screen. Both of them are pretty darn big, all told.

Of course,…

The iOS App Store is brimming over with high quality games, with prices that often fluctuate wildly. It can be hard to grab all of the bargain offers that come your way, which is why we’ll step in from time to time to highlight the deals that might not get the exposure they deserve.

Take Little Galaxy (currently going by the name Little Galaxy Family), for example. It’s been out for three years, which is an absolute age in the world of iOS games. Yet it remains an extremely fresh and attractive casual arcade game.

One giant leap for boykind

To celebrate three years of availability on the App Store, developer Bitmap Galaxy has made its slick space-arcade game available to download for free – but only for the next three days. It’s normally £1.59.

The idea is to tap to make your little space man hop from planetoid to planetoid, timing your leaps as he rotates into position. Not only do you need to make contact with the next planetoid so that you don’t go spinning off into space, but super-precise timing will enable you to snag the various trinkets that line certain interplanetary paths.
