It's not Stonehenge, but large Samsung Galaxy S8 dummies are appearing in the U.K. (VIDEO)



Stonehenge is one of those mysteries that we may never be able to solve. Much easier to answer is the question of who is leaving huge models of the Samsung Galaxy S8 all over the England. Measuring 21 feet by 9 feet, these larger than life replicas of the Galaxy S8 are making their way throughout the country a little more than a week before the launch of the phone and the larger Samsung Galaxy S8+ on April 21st.

The locations where these have been left include iconic locations such as the aforementioned Stonehenge. Apparently, the idea is to show off the large curved edge-to-edge Infinity Display. It's all part of a project run by Samsung to determine the most iconic British view.

Travel experts selected a number of these locations and the public voted on the top 20. And those are some of the spots where the extra large Galaxy S8 has been spotted. The large models show off the handsets' 18.5:9 aspect ratio and the thin bezels.

Check out the video at the top of the screen to see which locations were voted in as the top 20 greatest British Views by the 2,500 people surveyed by Samsung.

Enjoy. Next will you consider getting the new iPhone or the Note 8?

Really not sure. Apple needs to offer the features I want, and the S8 Plus may make me skip the Note 8. The more I play with the S8 Plus, the less I feel I need an S-Pen.

It's impressive, but I still say battery tests are mostly useless. But, it does make me laugh with iPhone users claiming they get 6 hours SOT and 18 hours overall.

Holy cow.... didn't see that coming. Now I'm really interested to see the GSMArena battery test results.

PA's battery test will show iPhone 7(not even plus) has better battery life than GS8 plus.
