Samsung says the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are made for summer


In a recent press release, Samsung presented its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagship handsets as being the "ideal companions for summer experiences."

The company conducted a survey - in which 1,000 smartphone owners participated - and found that smartphone use increases 42% in the US during the hot summer months. Moreover, Samsung found that 61% of the users who participated in its survey were "worried about how well their phone is protected from water, sand, dust, and other elements." Naturally, since the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are both dust- and water-resistant, Samsung says that they're "designed to endure the enticing elements of the outdoors".

To be fair, plenty of other flagship phones currently on the market are also dust- and water-resistant, but we certainly can't blame Samsung for touting these capabilities.

According to Samsung, other features that make the Galaxy S8 and S8+ perfect for summer include their high-end cameras, the dual-curve Infinity Displays, the expandable memory, and all-day battery life.

To showcase the Galaxy S8 series and its summer prowess, Samsung is opening Galaxy Studios - pop-up stores that provide "access to product experiences, interactive activities, summer parties and events." Throughout the summer, customers will be able to find Galaxy Studio pop-ups in Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Chicago.


Samsung also kicked off a Made for Summer campaign at its Samsung 837 technology playground and digital store located in Manhattan, New York City. From now and until Labor Day (4 September), Samsung 837 is hosting weekly musical performances, photography workshops, sunset rooftop screenings, and more. During these events, fans will be encouraged to "capture, create and share their favorite summer moments using Samsung's latest technology" - including, of course, the Galaxy S8 and S8+. You can find a schedule of Made for Summer events at this Samsung website

Funny how you people whine and cry when Apple haters are in Apple articles.

Funny how you continue to jockride off the Samsung fans. Continue to prove me right about you being a fake.

The only one jockriding here is you, on every single Apple fanboy. Meanwhile I can agree with non-blind fanboys regardless if they're using Apple, Samsung, Sony, etc. Keep telling yourself that I'm a fake, maybe one day you'll believe it.

I thought it was Kumar before but now I think Lumbergh and Mxyflashmite are the same person. Obsession with darkk is too much lol.

Absolutely. He relentlessly targets the same people with his faux accounts as soon as he makes them, and he attacks the same OEM's with them as well. It's a huge giveaway the way he especially targets the same people.

100% obvious bro.

We aren't. I just found it funny because Darkkmite is always fangasming over the Note 8 and he actually agrees with techie. He lost my respect when he supported techie and now he gets no sympathy, no mercy from me when it comes to comments and being brutally honest.

You say he's fangasming over Note 8 but did you forget your own "My body is ready" comments? Or are you still gonna deny that you are mxyzptlk?

BOOM goes the dynamite!

Lmao! Exactly. Dude has been making "my body is ready" comments about the iPhone using his mxyzptlk account for at least the entire time I've been on PA. He consistently proves just how much of a hypocrite he really is.

It's called being a shill hypocrite, and it doesn't matter if he's logged in as Mxyzptlk, Flash or Batmite, he's always one.

Says someone who actually got roasted by Techie. I mean, Techie is already a lowly troll, yet you still got roasted by him at another article LOL.

43. darkkjedii

Posts: 31273; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

He's pissed cause I agreed with Techie...oh well lol. If Techie says something that's true, should not I agree with it? Battynomercymxyflashmite is a sad one, but hey....he shows no mercy on a tech site ;)

51. meanestgenius

Posts: 22199; Member since: May 28, 2014

And how ridiculous is that? You agree with someone that he doesn't agree with, so he goes off and starts attacking you, and showing "no mercy" at that, lol. Dude is as immature as they come.

56. darkkjedii

Posts: 31273; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

Legend has it, that if you look into a mirror, and say no mercy 3 times, BloodyBattynomercymxyflashmite will appear, and show you no mercy. I dare you to do it MG.

Mainly he's pissed because you like a Samsung phone more than the iPhone. When you leaned Apple, he was your best buddy. Then, when Samsung phones began surpassing the iPhone, and you noted it, suddenly you were his enemy, to be shown no mercy.

Your mercy has limits LMAO
